Meeting with young Hong Kong people in Shanghai

After my trip to Wuhan, I went on to visit Shanghai. My schedule is very tight, including attending the Third Plenary Session of the Hong Kong/Shanghai Economic and Trade Co-operation Conference, visiting the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone and meeting with leaders of the Shanghai Municipal Government.

Hong Kong and Shanghai are major windows for the country to deepen reform and opening up. There are frequent interactions between the two cities, with many young people from Hong Kong studying or working in Shanghai. Today, I arranged a tea gathering with some of these students and young people to hear about their lives in Shanghai.

I told the students that with our country's rapid development, learning more about the Mainland and broadening their horizons during their studies would be of great benefit to their future career.

With the country's comprehensive reform and opening up policy and implementation of major development strategies such as "One Belt, One Road", co-operation between Hong Kong and Shanghai will get closer in future. I am confident that with their flexible minds, international outlook and first-hand knowledge of the country, our young people working in Shanghai can fully capitalise on the opportunities arising from the country's development and Hong Kong-Shanghai co-operation.

The future belongs to the young. The Special Administrative Region Government will continue to devote more resources to youth work to support the development of our young people.
