FS concludes visit in London (with photo)
     The Financial Secretary, Mr Paul Chan, yesterday (October 31, London time) proceeded with the last day of his visit in London.

     Mr Chan paid a courtesy call on the Chinese Ambassador to the United Kingdom (UK), Mr Liu Xiaoming in the morning. He said that, apart from further enhancing economic partnership between Hong Kong and the UK, he also introduced the latest situation in Hong Kong and the Government's efforts in response to recent social incidents when meeting with leaders of different sectors.

     He emphasised that Hong Kong's financial system is sound and resilient and running smoothly. The effective implementation of the "one country, two systems" principle and unchanging institutional strengths such as rule of law of Hong Kong will help the city to meet the challenges.

     He also called on the Chancellor of the Exchequer of the UK, Mr Sajid Javid, to exchange views on strengthening Hong Kong-UK partnerships in various areas, such as fintech, infrastructure financing and green finance.
     He underlined the deep links between London and Hong Kong as two international finance centres and encouraged further co-operation at the government and regulatory levels riding on the UK-Hong Kong Financial Services Government Dialogue held this May.

     Having concluded the visit in London, Mr Chan will arrive Hong Kong in the afternoon on November 1 (Hong Kong time).
