Groups of Hong Kong organizations held various activities to study the essence of the just-concluded 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, helping Hong Kong residents better understand the nation’s new development blueprint and Hong Kong’s role in it.

On Sunday, district offices in Kowloon City and Wong Tai Sin organized such study sessions to enable Hong Kong young people and district leaders to obtain a deeper understanding of the Party Congress, according to a government statement.

Over 1,200 people attended the sessions, including lawmakers, district councilors, government officials and community leaders. More sessions are planned by other district offices

Both events had former Legislative Council president Jasper Tsang Yok-sing as the keynote speaker. In an easy-to-understand manner, Tsang elaborated on the key points of Secretary General Xi Jinping’s report, delivered at the opening session of the 20th Party Congress, including the necessity to adhere to the “one country, two systems” principle over the long term, and the central government’s full support of Hong Kong’s integration into the nation’s development.

Over 1,200 people attended the sessions, including lawmakers, district councilors, government officials and community leaders. More sessions are planned by other district offices.

On Monday, the Hong Kong China Chamber of Commerce held a seminar on the significance of Xi’s report at the Party’s 20th National Congress.

Zhou Haijiang, president of the chamber and a delegate to the National Party Congress, said that in the new era of development, private entrepreneurs should actively fulfill political and social responsibilities and make greater contributions to the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation in all respects.

Recently, Hong Kong young people also exchanged their views on the Party Congress in a learning session, as well as a one-week training course that was designed to strengthen their understanding of the country’s development.

Both activities were co-organized by the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Youth Association, which comprises youth leaders from the 11-city cluster.

During the session, political heavyweights expounded on Hong Kong-related themes in Xi’s report. The training course attracted 82 young people, who had lively discussions about Xi’s report and Hong Kong’s newly released Policy Address.
