HONG KONG – The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government said on Friday that the central authorities will be sending a delegation next week to Hong Kong to introduce the 14th Five-Year Plan to different sectors.

In a statement, a spokesman for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's government said it will hold the first talk at the Central Government Offices on Monday morning.

The talk will be broadcast live from 10 am to 12.30 pm at webcast.info.gov.hk and the Facebook page of the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau, as well as on RTHK TV 31 and RTHK TV 32.

The spokesman said the HKSAR government welcomes overseas enterprises aiming to enhance access to the mainland and Asian markets to continue to leverage Hong Kong's advantages and to seize the opportunities brought about by the development of the nation.

The central authorities make all decisions on Hong Kong matters “based on the interests of the city”, the HKSAR government said

The spokesman also said the HKSAR government fully supports any decision made by the central authorities.

In response to media inquiries relating to the 30th session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC), the spokesman said the central authorities always care about Hong Kong’s development and the well-being of the Hong Kong people. 

The central authorities make all decisions on Hong Kong matters “based on the interests of the city,” the spokesman added.

“The HKSAR government fully supports and executes any such decisions.”

In the past year or so, the NPC Standing Committee has enacted the National Security Law for Hong Kong, and adopted bills that amended the HKSAR’s electoral system. 

These measures helped to resolve the problems in Hong Kong, and demonstrated the central authorities’ determination to uphold the "one country, two systems" principle, said the spokesman.

Hong Kong's rule of law remains unchanged and the city’s status as an international financial center is “as robust as ever,” the government said, adding that it will safeguard the legitimate rights of all enterprises in Hong Kong.
