Some thoughts after three district visits

Today's forum in Wan Chai was the last in my recent round of district visits. Through these three forums, my political team and I heard the public's views and suggestions on district development, infrastructure and management, as well as some territory-wide issues.

I often emphasise that no livelihood issue is too trivial. Hong Kong people's everyday problems and needs, whether they are in the area of housing, employment, education or the environment, are the concerns of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. We will keep in mind the views from the people when we formulate and implement policies with a view to putting government services to better use. I believe that the Principal Officials and civil servant colleagues share the view that the best reward for being public servants is to do things that are good for and beneficial to the public.

Although there were some disruptions to my district visits, they have not dampened our determination to communicate directly with the public. In future, my political team and I will continue to explore suitable occasions to visit the districts because we are well aware that, rationally, we must have a good understanding of the problems and opportunities in different districts, and, emotionally, we need to keep in touch with the people we serve to see how they feel about such problems and opportunities.
