179.         Hong Kong is an open society that enjoys a free flow of information and frequent arts exchanges. Embracing both Chinese and Western cultures and building on our vibrant creativity, we have developed a thriving cultural industry based on local popular culture. Over the past decades, Hong Kong's television drama, music, films, newspapers, magazines and books have gained immense popularity in overseas Chinese communities. Talented film and television professionals from Hong Kong are not only making their way to Hollywood, but are also engaged extensively in film and television production in both the Mainland and Taiwan. The impact of Hong Kong culture on other cities is testimony to the abundance of our creative talents. Given suitable support, Hong Kong can scale new heights in cultural and arts development.

180.         Hong Kong's cultural and creative industries have run into an array of difficulties in recent years. Nevertheless, I have full confidence in Hong Kong's creativity and potential. With necessary resources and appropriate government support, these industries still have much room for development. Providing government support for creative industries is not uncommon. Examples can be found in Korea, Singapore and across the Mainland. I will explore suitable mechanisms to give full support to Hong Kong's cultural and arts activities and promote the development of cultural and creative industries.
