     The Financial Secretary, Mr John C Tsang, today (June 7, Stockholm time) arrived in Stockholm from St Petersburg on the second leg of his visit to Europe.

     Mr Tsang's first engagement in Stockholm was to attend a reception to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Royal Sweden Hong Kong Society (RSHKS).

     Speaking at the reception, he thanked the RSHKS for its support of Hong Kong and confidence in the city over the past quarter of a century.

     He also talked about the potential for even stronger relations between Sweden and Hong Kong.

     The reception was attended by about 200 prominent Swedish businessmen and dignitaries, including RSHKS Patron, Princess Birgitta of Sweden, and RSHKS chairman, Mr Bo Ekander. A group of Chinese University of Hong Kong EMBA students currently on a study tour in Stockholm were also at the reception.
