Policy Address consultation launched (with video)
*************************************************

     ‚ÄčThe Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region today (July 25) launched a public consultation for the Chief Executive's 2022 Policy Address. The Chief Executive, Mr John Lee, will deliver his first Policy Address on October 19.

     "My team and I are pleased to start a new chapter for Hong Kong with our fellow citizens. I advocate a people-based governing belief, while pursuing a result-oriented approach to serve members of the public in a pragmatic manner," Mr Lee said.
      
     "I shall turn my electoral promises and community interests into practical measures to improve governance, strengthen the momentum for development, tackle people's concerns, and unite the community. Together we will leverage on Hong Kong's unique strengths of having the motherland's support and connect with the world to build a harmonious and diverse community where development opportunities abound.
      
     "I earnestly invite members of the public to give your views on the 2022 Policy Address. Your views will drive us to better serve citizens and the development of Hong Kong."

     The Government will conduct about 30 consultation sessions to listen to views and suggestions of the Legislative Council Members, representatives of various sectors and members of the public. Mr Lee and his governing team will also conduct district visits to meet with members of the public and representatives of different sectors to tap public views through multiple channels.
      
     Starting from today, members of the public can give their views through the Policy Address website (www.policyaddress.gov.hk), via the dedicated Facebook page for the Policy Address public consultation (www.facebook.com/PolicyAddress2022), or by email (policyaddress@cso.gov.hk), phone (2432 1899) or fax (2537 9083).
