The nation’s two sessions, held earlier this month, offered important guidance for Hong Kong young peoples’ future development, and they were encouraged to keep abreast of the nation’s major policies to seek greater development opportunities, political heavyweights said.
Officials and Hong Kong delegates of the two sessions — the annual respective meetings of the National People’s Congress and the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference — made the call at a sharing session on Thursday, which was oriented to the city’s young people.
Song Lai, an official of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, said President Xi Jinping’s speech at the closing ceremony of the two sessions provides important guidance for Hong Kong to play its role in China’s modernization, which will surely bring significant opportunities for Hong Kong’s long-term economic and social development.
