Govt rejects UK report on HK

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government today vehemently refuted, strongly disapproved of and firmly rejected the slandering remarks and ill-intentioned political attacks on the city under the successful application of “one country, two systems” in the so-called United Kingdom Six-monthly Report on Hong Kong: July to December 2022.   In a press statement, the Government again urged the UK to respect international law and the basic norms governing international relations and stop interfering in Hong Kong matters, which are purely China’s internal affairs.   Improved electoral system for patriots to administer HK The new electoral system has established the Legislative Council Election Committee Constituency which goes beyond the vested interests of various groups and districts, and broadened the representation in Hong Kong’s political structure in a balanced and orderly manner, thereby enhancing the city’s governance efficiency, the statement pointed out.   The sev

CE tours Museum of Art

Chief Executive Carrie Lam visited the Museum of Art and the Cultural Centre, which re-opened today, to inspect their anti-epidemic measures.   Mrs Lam inspected measures adopted at both venues, including requiring members of the public to scan the LeaveHomeSafe QR code with their mobile phones or register their contact details, and stepping up cleaning and disinfection.   Special opening hours and admission quotas have been implemented at exhibition venues, while at performance venues, special seating arrangements have been adopted and the size of audiences have been restricted to maintain social distancing.   Mrs Lam watched a rehearsal of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and spoke with conductor Lio Kuokman and cellist Trey Lee.   Noting that the orchestra has made significant efforts for forthcoming shows, Mrs Lam said she believes that the ensemble will resume performances at home and abroad gradually following the easing of the epidemic situation.   Mrs Lam also toured two exhibitions at the Museum of Art, namely the Honouring Tradition & Heritage: Min Chiu Society at Sixty, which was launched today, featuring more than 300 works of Chinese art, and the Botticelli & His Times - Masterworks from the Uffizi exhibition.   She chatted with visitors who told her that they were excited about the museum’s reopening.   Mrs Lam was pleased to note that during the closure of venues owing to the epidemic, various improvement works were conducted by the Leisure & Cultural Services Department to upgrade the facilities at some of the performance sites to bring a new experience to users and the public.   She said the 49th Hong Kong Arts Festival, which opens on February 27, is a major event for both the local and international arts scenes, providing a dazzling range of performing arts programmes. She encouraged the public not to miss them.   Mrs Lam said: “In the next two years, two museums in the West Kowloon Cultural District, ie the M+ Museum of modern and contemporary visual arts and the Hong Kong Palace Museum showcasing invaluable Chinese artefacts, will be launched, and new performance venues such as the East Kowloon Cultural Centre will also be commissioned.”   She added these new facilities, together with the reopened Museum of Art, the Cultural Centre and the Xiqu Centre, will definitely turn a new page in the development of arts and culture in Hong Kong after the epidemic, offering a fruitful cultural journey to locals and visitors.
