CE's statement on appointment of Principal Officials of the new-term Government
     The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, today (June 19) issued the following statement on the appointment of Principal Officials of the new-term Government:
     I sincerely congratulate the Principal Officials of the sixth-term Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region just appointed by the Central People's Government.  I am sure that, under the leadership of the Chief Executive, they will steadfastly implement the "One Country, Two Systems" principle, focus on development as the top priority and strive to resolve those economic and livelihood issues of common concern with perseverance and dedication.
     In my final Policy Address delivered last year, I said I hope that with the improved electoral system, more patriots who love Hong Kong and who have the aspirations, ability and commitment will be willing to accept the challenges and join the governing team to make contributions to Hong Kong and the country.  I am pleased to learn that the Chief Executive-elect has smoothly formed his cabinet and I wish that the new governing team will act in concert to enable Hong Kong to forge ahead towards development and prosperity.
     I would also like to take this opportunity to, once again, express my heartfelt gratitude to all the incumbent Principal Officials for their diligence and dedication over the past five years in tackling difficulties and challenges together with me, and in bringing Hong Kong back on the right track of "One Country, Two Systems".  They have also served the community well under their respective policy purviews in order to build a better Hong Kong.  I wish each and every one of them all the best.
