     Visitors can take part in a question-and-answer session to test their understanding of the Basic Law. There are also interactive elements and videos to enable visitors to gain a deeper understanding of the Hong Kong National Security Law and the improved electoral system.

     The "New Paradigm for a New Future" zone covers four main subjects: the support of the National 14th Five-Year Plan for Hong Kong in enhancing its strengths in eight key areas in which Hong Kong has a competitive edge; the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA); the Northern Metropolis Development Strategy; and the Lantau Tomorrow Vision. A promotional video on 25th anniversary celebrations will be played at the beginning of this zone.
