She was then given a briefing on board a vessel on the developments along the waterfront by representatives of the Port of San Francisco.

     In the evening, Mrs Lam attended a dinner with Hong Kong people working and studying in San Francisco to update them on Hong Kong's latest developments and draw their attention to the various talent admission schemes in Hong Kong, particularly the Admission Scheme for the Second Generation of Chinese Hong Kong Permanent Residents which, since its inception a year ago, has attracted over 50 successful applicants from the United States.

    Tomorrow (June 5, San Francisco time) morning, Mrs Lam will proceed to Washington, DC, and arrive in the evening (Washington, DC Time).
