Govt to enhance securities trading

It is a pleasure to be here with you today, especially after an accident that has reminded me of the importance of staying vigilant even in relatively peaceful times. Continuously enhancing competitiveness despite good business is also a theme I wish to harp on in today's speech.   Some of you may recall that I last spoke to you in November 2018. That was into the second year of my tenure, witnessing the celebration of the 40th anniversary of our nation's reform and opening up, and the consecutive opening of two major pieces of cross-boundary transport infrastructure - the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. All seemed bright and well. And then we all have some frightening memories of what Hong Kong had gone through in the following two years. Few would disagree that it has been a very challenging period for Hong Kong, particularly with the riots in the latter half of 2019 during which some banks were

More Basic Law training for teachers

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung today said the Government has stepped up Basic Law training for school principals and teachers from the 2020-21 school year and received a positive response to the relevant programmes.   Responding to lawmakers' questions at the Legislative Council today, Mr Yeung noted that training principals and teachers is a priority task for the Education Bureau and it has been providing training programmes on the Basic Law for them.   Relevant work stepped up from the 2020-21 school year included strengthening the contents on the Constitution, the Basic Law and the National Security Law in the core training programmes for newly-joined and in-service teachers and those aspiring for promotion as well as the training programmes for school principals, in which experienced legal experts and academics are invited as speakers.   Additionally, the bureau organised different programmes in collaboration with some organisations in the 2020-21 school year, including the Respecting the Law, Reinforcing the Rule of Law training programme co-organised with the Endeavour Education Centre to systematically help teachers understand Hong Kong's constitutional status and the rule of law.   Mr Yeung pointed out that the training can help principals and teachers become a role model for students, enlighten students in lessons and daily life, guide them to respect and obey the law and eventually to reinforce the rule of law.   He added that an enthusiastic response was received from principals and teachers who said the programmes can help deepen their understanding of the Constitution and the Basic Law while clarifying any misunderstandings.   More training programmes will be organised in future, Mr Yeung added.   Furthermore, the bureau has all along been working on the organisation of professional study tours to the Mainland for school principals and teachers to help them better understand the nation's latest developments through personal observations and experiences.   Participants can then reflect on the relationship between Hong Kong and the country and that of the country and the world, and widen their horizons, the education chief said.   Apart from arranging newly-appointed school principals to participate in professional exchange tours to the Mainland, Mr Yeung noted that Mainland study tours, generally with a stay for about four days, have been included as part of the core training for newly-joined teachers and those aspiring for promotion from the 2020-21 school year to enhance their understanding of the national and educational development.   The bureau hopes that teachers can inspire their students and help them think about the opportunities brought to Hong Kong by the nation's development and how the city can contribute to it, he said.   The study tours had been postponed to the 2021-22 school year due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
