Transcript of remarks by SHA at media session

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Home Affairs, Mr Caspar Tsui, at a media session at the Legislative Council Complex today (August 27):

Reporter: How likely the co-hosting of the Games (15th National Games) can further enhance people’s patriotism like appreciating the co-hosted events especially among the youngsters?

Secretary for Home Affairs: I think a major sports event in Hong Kong will benefit our promotion of sports, sports for all, elite sports and mega events. We are also exploring the potential with the development and opportunities in the Greater Bay Area, and any enhancement or further development in the professional areas related to sports as well as sports-related events. I think what the Greater Bay Area presented is the opportunity, especially for our youngsters, to understand our role in the Greater Bay Area. So I would encourage, in the next few years, more exchanges, more sports-related events, especially for the youngsters, be organised to understand our role in the Greater Bay Area and the development of the country.
