Central government agencies in Hong Kong and mainland enterprises in the special administrative region have been urged to redouble efforts to support the SAR government and police in exercising law-based governance, according to a Monday release of the central government’s top representative organization in the SAR.

The Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the HKSAR recently convened with leaders of these organizations in a meeting that focused on perusing a series of remarks made by President Xi Jinping during the run-up to National Day and on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Liaison Office Director Wang Zhimin presided over the meeting.

Xi stressed the importance of unity, saying it is “an important guarantee for the Chinese people and the Chinese nation to overcome all the risks and challenges on the path forward and to achieve new victories”, the release said of the meeting memo.

“With the motherland’s backing and central government’s support for Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor and her administration, as well as for Hong Kong police’s law enforcement, Hong Kong will achieve final success in stopping violence and restoring law and order, and moving forward with the ‘one country, two systems’ principle,” the release said.

Since Hong Kong’s return to the motherland, the implementation of the “one country, two systems” principle in Hong Kong has achieved internationally recognized success. Anyone with unbiased views would conclude the “one country, two systems” principle is the best solution for Hong Kong and the best institutional arrangement for it to maintain its long-term prosperity and stability, the meeting said.

The meeting also stressed that more efforts will be made to provide opportunities for Hong Kong youths, helping them resolve difficulties in study, work and entrepreneurship and creating a sound social environment to facilitate the realization of their dreams.

It is also important to nurture a sense of national identity and patriotism in young people of Hong Kong by strengthening education of the rule of law, national development, Chinese history and culture, it said.
