Policy Address

Upholding the Core Values

212.     Hong Kong's development into a world metropolis is the combined effort of many generations.  We should treasure what we have achieved.  The rule of law is the cornerstone of our prosperity and stability.  Everyone is equal before the law, and everyone must obey it.  There is no excuse for anyone to break the law.

213.     Over the years, the Government remains committed to upholding core values such as freedom, human rights, democracy, the rule of law and clean governance.  The Government will continue to implement the Basic Law, and promote a more comprehensive, thorough and accurate understanding of "One Country, Two Systems" and the Basic Law in the community.  Safeguarding the rights of Hong Kong residents under the Basic Law and ensuring a proper understanding of the obligation to obey the law are the key to maintaining Hong Kong's prosperity and stability as well as its international status.

The Civil Service

214.     The successful implementation of the Government's policies and initiatives relies on the support and teamwork of our professional civil service.  I am fully aware that our civil servants are facing growing challenges, heavier workload and greater difficulties.  I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude to each of them for serving the community with dedication, professionalism and perseverance, and providing quality services for the public in the past year.  I firmly believe that our civil service will continue to adhere to the principle of putting people first and fully support the effective governance of the Government in serving the community.
