SCST visits Beijing (with photos)
Mr Yeung said, "As announced in the Policy Address this year, Hong Kong will set up a museum to showcase the development and achievements of our country in various aspects. The visit to the NMC and exchanges with representatives of the museum will be beneficial to our preparatory work in formulating the museum. Showcasing the Chinese nation's road of rejuvenation in a comprehensive manner, 'The Road of Rejuvenation' exhibition lets us learn more about the great spirit of the Chinese nation with patriotism as the core and build strong cultural confidence, thus creating new successes for the Chinese culture and increasing the public's 'sense of gain'."
Mr Yeung started his itinerary upon arrival in Beijing yesterday (November 16) afternoon. He first visited the Museum of the Communist Party of China (CPC), which features the CPC's centenary-long journey through various forms and techniques.
Mr Yeung said, "The Museum of the CPC deepens our understanding of the CPC's centennial history and the real essence of its establishment. We fully appreciate the indomitable spirit that Chinese revolutionaries upheld in the Long March, which always reminds us to remain true to our original aspirations and bear in mind our mission. The Museum's curation and description, as well as selection and presentation of exhibits and pictures, have inspired us on planning our museum to showcase the development and achievements of our country in both content and curation."
Mr Yeung also called on the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office (HKMAO) of the State Council and met with House Committee Member Mr Xiang Bin to brief him on the work of the Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau (CSTB) and the relevant initiatives set out in the Policy Address. The HKMAO expressed clear support for and fully recognised the CSTB's work under Mr Yeung's leadership.
Mr Yeung will return to Hong Kong this evening.
