Gao Jingde, President of the Hong Kong Chinese Culture Association, said in his speech that he hopes to spend a peaceful, happy, healthy and progressive Spring Festival with the public through the activities. At the beginning of the new year, the central government and the Hong Kong SAR government gave Hong Kong citizens a “New Year gift” to “clear customs” with the mainland. I believe this will be of great benefit to the recovery of Hong Kong’s economy and people’s livelihood and the opening of a glorious chapter.

Mao Chaofeng, chairman of Bauhinia Culture Group, said in his speech that the resumption of “customs clearance” between Hong Kong and the mainland is an important achievement of the central government and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government’s joint fight against the epidemic, and it reflects the central government’s support for Hong Kong’s development and care for Hong Kong citizens. I believe that after the “customs clearance”, the lives of Hong Kong citizens will be happier and more prosperous, and the future of Hong Kong’s economy can be expected.
