The following is issued on behalf of the Legislative Council Secretariat:

     The President of the Legislative Council (LegCo), Mr Jasper Tsang, continued with his visit to Japan today (March 12).

     On his fourth day in Tokyo, Mr Tsang visited the Senior High School at Otsuka, University of Tsukuba. He briefly introduced the education system in Hong Kong.  

     In a luncheon organized by the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan, Mr Tsang delivered a speech on the recent political developments in Hong Kong to Japan-based journalists. Mr Tsang said that the reform package, which would be voted on in the next few months, might be LegCo's most important decision. He called on all sides to work together to make the reform a success for the long term well-being of Hong Kong. Responding to a question from the audience, Mr Tsang said that while public demonstrations would be expected regardless of the vote outcome, he believed that the public would express their views peacefully.
