     The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, met the Secretary of the CPC Shanxi Provincial Committee, Mr Luo Huining, at Government House this morning (December 3).
     Welcoming Mr Luo's first visit to Hong Kong in his capacity as the Secretary of the CPC Shanxi Provincial Committee to attend a promotional event on attracting investment in Shanxi, Mrs Lam wished his visit in Hong Kong every success. Mrs Lam said that the exchanges between Shanxi and Hong Kong have become more frequent with close economic and trade ties and there is much room for development.
     Noting that Shanxi has rich energy resources and a strong industrial base, Mrs Lam said that Hong Kong has the unique advantage of "One Country, Two Systems" with a well-established legal and judicial system, efficient professional services and a large pool of professional and management talents and can provide a platform for Shanxi enterprises to attract foreign investment and "go global". She added that Hong Kong is an international financial centre and welcomes Shanxi enterprises to list in Hong Kong. On people-to-people exchanges, she said she was pleased to note that Shanxi has rich heritage and expressed the hope that Shanxi can arrange heritage exhibitions in Hong Kong to deepen Hong Kong people's understanding of Shanxi. She also briefed Mr Luo on the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government's enhanced internship programmes in the Mainland launched in recent years for places including the Palace Museum, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Wolong National Nature Reserve in Sichuan and said she hopes that the Shanxi Government could provide similar internship opportunities for young Hong Kong people in the future.
