     The Chief Executive, Mr John Lee, met with the Vice Minister of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and President and Editor-in-Chief of China Media Group (CMG), Mr Shen Haixiong, at Government House today (July 1).

     Welcoming Mr Shen's visit to Hong Kong, Mr Lee thanked the CMG, including its Asia-Pacific headquarters, for its continuous support for the work of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

     To mark the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR, CGTN Documentary and Radio The Greater Bay under the CMG were officially launched in Hong Kong today through the television and radio channels as well as the online platform of Radio Television Hong Kong, enabling Hong Kong people to understand the latest developments of the country and enhance their sense of national identity and promoting Hong Kong's proactive integration into the overall development of the country.

     Mr Lee expressed his gratitude to the CMG for its comprehensive reports on the development of Hong Kong in various aspects, allowing Mainland compatriots to know more about the HKSAR. Noting that the next five years will be a critical moment for Hong Kong to forge ahead from governance towards development and prosperity, he said that the HKSAR Government will step up co-operation with the CMG to leverage its international network to give full play to the national support for Hong Kong to develop as a hub for international arts and cultural exchanges under the National 14th Five-Year Plan to promote the magnificent Chinese culture.
