Twentieth Anniversary of Return to the Motherland

263. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to the motherland. The Government is organising a series of large-scale celebration activities under the theme of “Together • Progress • Opportunity”. Our Mainland and overseas offices will also organise celebration events in over 80 cities worldwide.

Successful Implementation of the Basic Law

264. Since Hong Kong’s return to the motherland, the principle of “one country, two systems” has been implemented in accordance with the Basic Law. The Basic Law ensures Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability, and allows us to ride on the dual advantages of “one country” and “two systems” to accomplish new achievements and make further progress in social and economic developments. CEPA, Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect, Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect, and the major cross-boundary infrastructure projects nearing completion exemplify the fruitful co-operation between Hong Kong and the Mainland.

265. Hong Kong has been contributing to the country’s internationalisation and connection with the world. Hong Kong serves not only as the offshore RMB centre of our country, but also the special administrative region for early and pilot implementation of liberalisation of trade in services through CEPA. As the most open international city of the country, Hong Kong plays the role of a “super-connector”, helping our country go global and attract foreign investment.
