     The Non-executive Chairman of MTR Corporation Limited (MTRC), Dr Rex Auyeung Pak-kuen, inspected the passing-out parade for 27 probationary inspectors and 127 recruit police constables at the Hong Kong Police College today (February 3).
     Speaking at the ceremony, Dr Auyeung said that the rule of law and public safety are the cornerstone of the city’s long-term development. Praising the Force as an excellent team, who spare no effort in safeguarding national security, maintaining social order, as well as protecting the public, he pointed out that their professional attitude has made Hong Kong one of the safest and most stable cities in the world.
     He said that the MTRC has always been in close collaboration with the Force in different areas, and appreciated for their support in ensuring the public safety of the railway network, and maintaining the order of the stations, thus facilitating the smooth running of the overall operation which benefits the railway passengers.
     Dr Auyeung encouraged the graduates that in the face of various challenges and difficulties, they should uphold the Force’s spirit of "Serving Hong Kong with Honour, Duty and Loyalty” regardless of the posts which they would attach to, and support and unite each other. Noting the rising public expectations for quality public services and the work of the Force is closely connected with people’s daily life, he believed that all graduates will serve the society with a professional attitude and care, and continue to communicate with the public to gain their support.
     Lastly, he hoped that in times of rapid changes, graduates should equip and improve themselves to achieve excellence at all times, keep pace with the times, and prepare themselves with capabilities and professional knowledge to face up to various challenges in the future.
