A New Direction for Hong Kong
Policy Address

Promoting the Basic Law

115.      As the constitutional document of the HKSAR, the Basic Law has laid a solid foundation for the continued stability and prosperity of Hong Kong. The Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau will devote more resources to increase the promotion of the Basic Law. We will also enhance Basic Law-related training for the civil service. In addition to providing training courses tailored to the specific needs of different levels of civil servants, we will establish a mechanism to follow up on their training status and incorporate the Basic Law into the civil service recruitment examination. At the same time, we will work closely with the working groups under the Basic Law Promotion Steering Committee to step up the promotion of the Basic Law in local communities and schools. For instance, we will actively sponsor and assist community organisations and schools in organising promotional activities.
