Transcript of remarks by SCED at media session
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Mr Algernon Yau, at a media session after hosting a cocktail reception for local and foreign chambers of commerce today (June 27):

Reporter: According to your understanding, what are the biggest concerns among different chambers of commerce in Hong Kong's recovery after COVID? My second question is how do the chambers see about the import of workers?

Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development: I spoke to various chambers from different countries. They are full of confidence about Hong Kong, and actually their intention to expand their businesses is far more than you expected. They are also telling very good stories about Hong Kong back in their countries. For the import of labours, I think this is a measure introduced by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government for the business and economy. We need the labour's support for businesses to grow.
