Chief Executive Carrie Lam today said she has received positive feedback from the central government on measures to support Hong Kong.
Speaking to the media from Beijing in the afternoon, Mrs Lam said she has been calling on various ministries and commissions in the central government to get more support for Hong Kong and various aspects of its economy since she became Chief Executive.
She said: “Because of the pandemic, these visits and meetings have been suspended for a while, but meanwhile, our work in order to get Hong Kong out of the current economic doldrums has been continuing. So I decided to put forward a series of measures that I would love to have more central government support, maybe a couple of months ago.
“I received very positive feedback and offered to arrange meetings directly between myself and the senior officials in the respective ministries and commissions, so that’s the purpose of the trip. It doesn’t reflect whether they are feeling that we are doing well or not well because this is an ongoing process.
“I’m sure you will appreciate that economic progress is an ongoing evolutionary process. There’s always this urge to do better in our economic development.”
