     The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, met the Chairman of the Legislative Affairs Commission and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Basic Law Committee of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, Mr Shen Chunyao, at Government House this afternoon (December 3). Principal Officials including the Chief Secretary for Administration, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, and the Secretary for Justice, Ms Teresa Cheng, SC, were also present.
     Mrs Lam welcomed Mr Shen's visit to Hong Kong to be the guest speaker at the Constitution Day Seminar tomorrow (December 4). She noted that the country's Constitution and the Basic Law together form the constitutional basis of the HKSAR, providing a legal basis for the country's basic policies on Hong Kong, namely "One Country, Two Systems", "Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong" and a high degree of autonomy, laying the cornerstones for Hong Kong's prosperity and stability. Mrs Lam said that the HKSAR Government will continue to enhance the community's understanding of the Constitution through such means as seminars, exhibitions, electronic media and school visits, and will also continue to promote the Basic Law.
