Xia Baolong raised five major questions, namely, "Can we always grasp the general direction of Hong Kong's "One Country, Two Systems" practice? Can we stick to the feelings of the people? Can we solve the deep-seated contradictions and problems in Hong Kong? Can we consolidate in the increasingly fierce international competition environment? And to enhance Hong Kong’s competitiveness?

On July 30, "Bauhinia" magazine disclosed the full text of Xia Baolong's speech:
Distinguished guests and friends:
good morning guys.
I am very pleased to participate in the "Review and Prospect of the First Anniversary of the Implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law" symposium hosted by the National Hong Kong and Macau Research Association.
First of all, congratulations on the holding of this seminar.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China.
Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, President of the State and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, delivered an important speech at the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, solemnly proclaiming to the world that we have achieved the first centenary goal and built a well-off society in China. , Historically solved the problem of absolute poverty.
President Xi Jinping’s important speech reviewed the glorious course of the Chinese Communist Party’s centuries of struggle, looked forward to the bright prospects for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, profoundly elaborated on the fundamental requirements of learning from history and creating the future, and pointed out the second step towards building a modern and powerful socialist country in an all-round way. The way forward for the goal of a century of struggle.
These have greatly enhanced the ambition, backbone, and confidence of all Chinese people, including Hong Kong and Macao compatriots, and will surely maximize the majestic strength of all Chinese people to build the Chinese dream together, and vigorously move toward the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Step forward.
In this important speech, President Xi Jinping profoundly expounded the "One Country, Two Systems" cause of Hong Kong and Macao, and once again reiterated his firm position to fully and accurately implement the "One Country, Two Systems" policy.
This fully demonstrates the important position of the cause of "one country, two systems" in the overall work of the party and the country, and has pointed out the way forward and provided fundamental follow-up to the work of Hong Kong and Macao in the new era.
President Xi Jinping emphasized the need to "implement the central government's overall governance over Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions, implement the legal system and enforcement mechanism of the Special Administrative Region to safeguard national security, safeguard national sovereignty, security, and development interests, and maintain the overall social stability of the Special Administrative Region."
This is very important for advancing the practice of "One Country, Two Systems" under the new situation, maintaining the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and Macao, and allowing Hong Kong and Macao compatriots and the people of the motherland to share the historical responsibility of national rejuvenation and share the great glory of the prosperity and strength of the motherland. Realistic pertinence and far-reaching historical significance.
Next, I will study and implement the spirit of Chairman Xi Jinping's important speech, fully and thoroughly implement the Hong Kong National Security Law, and advance the practice of "One Country, Two Systems".
1. The changes in Hong Kong demonstrate the great power of Hong Kong’s National Security Law. Facts have eloquently proved that this law is the law to ensure the safety, stability and tranquility of Hong Kong.
President Xi Jinping emphasized that "national security is an important cornerstone of stability and stability." National security can be the people's security, and the national security can be Hong Kong's security. The word "安" was selected as the Hong Kong Chinese Character of the Year in 2020, reflecting the common hope of Hong Kong citizens for stability, determination and peace of mind. "Safety" comes and "good" comes, and "safety" is the greatest blessing. Only when "settling down" can Hong Kong get better, hope and develop. Recall that more than a year ago, "Hong Kong independence" was rampant, "black violence" and "speculation" were rampant. These scenes have left many Hong Kong citizens still lingering fears. At a critical juncture, the central government promulgated the Hong Kong National Security Law with the momentum of thunder, which is to make Hong Kong "secure" and to ensure the long-term stability and long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong. On May 28 last year, the Third Session of the 13th National People’s Congress passed the “Decision of the National People’s Congress on Establishing and Improving the Legal System and Implementation Mechanism for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to Maintain National Security”, the second session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress on June 30. When the "Law on Maintaining National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China" was passed at the tenth meeting, there was endless thunderous applause in the Great Hall of the People, which still lingers in my ears. This applause fully reflects the common aspirations of the entire Chinese people, including the Hong Kong compatriots, and represents the unshakable national will. The promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law turned the chaos in Hong Kong in one fell swoop and achieved a major turning point. This change was hard-won, thought-provoking, significant, and far-reaching. As many Hong Kong citizens have said, the implementation of the National Security Law has quickly brought Hong Kong society back on track and is an important milestone in the practice of "One Country, Two Systems".
-With the Hong Kong National Security Law, Hong Kong's history of "undefended" in safeguarding national security has ended, and the Hong Kong version of the "color revolution" scheme has been completely shattered. Before the promulgation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, the anti-China and Hong Kong forces endangering national security were so rampant: they openly clamored for "Hong Kong independence", played the banner of "Hong Kong independence", advocated "armed nation building" and "constitution of squares"; they openly insulted and burned the national flag, They defaced the national emblem, tore up the Hong Kong Basic Law, attacked the central government agencies in Hong Kong, violently captured and smashed the Legislative Council building; they openly begged foreign countries to impose sanctions on China, sanctions Hong Kong, and even clamored "fight for the United States" in an attempt to subvert the regime of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Hong Kong version of "Color Revolution". National security has always been a basic prerequisite for the survival and development of a country, and it has a bearing on the fundamental interests of the country and all its citizens. May I ask, which country will tolerate splitting and subversion in its own country? Which country will tolerate terrorist activities? Which country will tolerate arbitrarily interfering in its internal affairs by hostile external forces? The Hong Kong National Security Law targets a very small number of anti-China chaos in Hong Kong and external hostile forces, and it protects the legitimate rights and interests of Hong Kong residents. The promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law has fundamentally blocked the loopholes in Hong Kong’s national security system, ended Hong Kong’s history of "undefended" in maintaining national security, and cut off the "black hands" of hostile forces at home and abroad that endanger national security. Maintained the constitutional order of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region established by the Constitution and the Basic Law. It declares to the world that any force trying to carry out a "color revolution" in Hong Kong is wishful thinking and self-defeating, and will surely fail miserably!
-With the Hong Kong National Security Law, Hong Kong bid farewell to the turbulent situation, and society gradually stabilized. Before the promulgation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, Hong Kong’s "dark violence" was rampant and destroyed beyond recognition. Everyone who loves Hong Kong is deeply distressed: thugs wreak havoc on public facilities such as MTR, buses, traffic lights, and airports. Molotov cocktails and gasoline bombs were thrown on the occasion, wantonly nuisance shopping malls, smashed shops along the street, besieged tourists and pedestrians, drenched innocent citizens in the street, and violently attacked the police armed with a weapon. There was no bottom line and no evil. Relevant information shows that the continuing violence caused more than 3,000 people to be injured, causing the MTR to suspend operations for the first time since its opening in 1979. The bricks pried by the rioters could fill 48 basketball courts, and the railings removed would connect 125 seats in Hong Kong. The second phase of the International Finance Center is so high. Once hailed as one of the safest cities in the world, Hong Kong has become anxious for citizens to travel, businesses are frightened, and tourists are afraid to avoid it. This is "a beautiful landscape" praised by American politicians. The lawless and horrible situation at that time allowed the general public of Hong Kong to see the ugly faces of the thugs: which is for human rights, only the brutality of unscrupulous bullying of innocent citizens; which is for democracy, only a handful of people do not hesitate to destroy Hong Kong. Performing disasters in the country and Hong Kong; what is it for freedom, there are only barbaric acts that nakedly deprive citizens of their personal freedom, freedom of speech, and freedom of life. The promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law not only safeguarded national security, but also safeguarded human rights and freedom. The streets and lanes have restored calmness, buses, subways, and airports have resumed normal operations. Commercial districts such as Central, Mong Kok, and Causeway Bay have restored their liveliness and harmony. Citizens can travel with peace of mind, shops can be opened with peace of mind, and children can go to school with peace of mind. As a Hong Kong citizen said, "National Security Law is like sunlight dispelling darkness" and "the long-awaited peaceful life is finally back."
-With the Hong Kong National Security Law, the governance order of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has returned to normal and the governance environment has been improved. Before the promulgation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, the anti-China and chaotic Hong Kong forces, with the support of external hostile forces, instigated various interference and sabotage activities, engaged in "political speculation," "economic speculation," and "violent speculation," in an attempt to push Hong Kong into a bottomless abyss. . In particular, some anti-China rioters in Hong Kong entered the governance structure of the Special Administrative Region through various elections, and unscrupulously interfered with, obstructed, and undermined the governance of the Special Administrative Region government, making it difficult for the government to govern. Take a look at what these people have done: They ignore the virtues and ethics of politicians and abuse their power to turn the non-political organization district councils expressly stipulated in the Hong Kong Basic Law into a political platform for promoting "Hong Kong independence" and inciting subversion of state power. ; They maliciously "rabbit" in the Legislative Council, causing the Legislative Council to be paralyzed for a long time, and a large number of bills closely related to the people's livelihood have not been reviewed for a long time. The vital interests of millions of taxpayers, wage earners, and disabled people, etc. Affected, even the Special Administrative Region Government’s distribution of 10,000 yuan of relief funds to residents in response to the epidemic was maliciously obstructed by them and almost let the "life-saving money" go to waste. These actions have gone far beyond the scope of supervising government governance in accordance with the law. The promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law has put an end to this chaotic situation, effectively safeguarded the administrative authority of the Chief Executive and the Special Administrative Region Government, and enabled the Special Administrative Region Government to focus on preventing and controlling the epidemic, developing the economy, and improving people’s livelihood. The Legislative Council and the Special Administrative Region Government The positive interaction began, and the political order in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region returned to normal.
——With the Hong Kong National Security Law, the flag of patriotism and Hong Kong is flying high, and social righteousness is fully demonstrated.
Before the promulgation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, the anti-China and chaotic Hong Kong forces turned black and white, and the reactionary media vigorously instigated it, and various fallacies and heresies prevailed.
In the most serious case, whoever speaks patriotism and who speaks fair words will be attacked and abused, will be "crippled" by cyber violence, and be beaten "privately". The atmosphere of terror suppresses the voices of patriots and Hong Kong lovers. free.
This is not tolerated by any normal society.
Patriotism is the deepest and most lasting emotion in the world.
Mr. Sun Yat-sen said that the biggest thing in being a man is "to know how to be patriotic."
The promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law has reversed many unconventional chaos in Hong Kong society. People who love the country and Hong Kong have raised their eyebrows, and their words and deeds against China and Hong Kong have been cast aside.
Just as some Hong Kong citizens sighed, "Finally, they can express their patriotism with confidence."
Hong Kong’s national security law has also brought gratifying changes to the campus. The national flag was raised and the national anthem was sung in primary and secondary schools. The national flag was fluttering and the national anthem was loud. Hong Kong young students finally released their patriotic passion.
On the first National Day after the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, thousands of street stations were placed in all walks of life. Many citizens sang patriotic songs and the five-star red flag was flying in every corner of Hong Kong.
On the first National Security Education Day after the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, the five major disciplined forces in Hong Kong collectively used Chinese-style marching, and the slogan "Loyalty to protect national security and courage to protect home security" resounded through the sky.
A year ago, speaking aloud Mandarin on the streets of Hong Kong, personal safety might be threatened; a year later, the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China was in full swing in Hong Kong. People from all walks of life praised President Xi Jinping’s important speech and spoke highly of the Communist Party of China. A hundred years of great feats, the trams and buses with the body decoration posters celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China traveled through the streets of Hong Kong beamingly.
-With the Hong Kong National Security Law, the arrogance of anti-China and Hong Kong elements has been hit hard, and Hong Kong has regained the dignity of the rule of law.
Before the promulgation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, the anti-China chaos in Hong Kong acted as they pleased, trampled on the rule of law, challenged Hong Kong's law enforcement and judicial authorities, and made a good Hong Kong devastated and devastated.
These people are public enemies of Hong Kong citizens.
With the promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, some anti-China and Hong Kong leaders and key elements have been deterred by the law, either "cutting seats" to protect themselves, or withdrawing from politics, or absconding overseas, or no longer arrogant; anti-China and Hong Kong organizations The birds and beasts disperse one after another, the dissolution of the dissolution, the retreat of the group, the retreat of the evacuation, and they are in panic all day long, and Hong Kong finally ushered in a bright and clear sky.
We firmly believe that when the anti-China chaos in Hong Kong is at the end of the road, it is when Hong Kong is back on track, and it is also the beginning of Hong Kong's united efforts to set off again.
——With the Hong Kong National Security Law, Hong Kong's economy and finance continue to be strong, and Hong Kong's lies of "badging" Hong Kong are undefeated. As soon as Hong Kong’s national security law was implemented last year, some foreign politicians jumped out and clamored that "the end of Hong Kong" and "the "one country, two systems" is dead." What are the facts? Let's take a look at a few sets of data: A year after the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, compared with the 12 months before the implementation, the amount of IPO funds raised in Hong Kong during the period exceeded HK$500 billion, which was about 50% more than the average daily turnover of Hong Kong shares The total amount of deposits in Hong Kong’s banking system increased by 5.6% to HK$14.9 trillion; the average daily transaction value for Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect was higher than that of Hong Kong’s National Security Law. The former increased by 96.1% and 98.2%, reaching 49.4 billion yuan and 23 billion yuan. In 2020, Hong Kong is the world's sixth largest exporter of goods, ranking up two places from 2019; Hong Kong's GDP grew by 7.9% in the first three months of this year, and the growth brought by trade was the highest in the past decade. At present, more than 9,000 mainland and overseas companies have set up companies in Hong Kong. Many corporate headquarters and financial institutions continue to expand their business and recruit staff in Hong Kong. Foreign media reporters stationed in Hong Kong have risen instead of falling. A public opinion survey shows that 63% of respondents believe that Hong Kong’s National Security Law has made the business environment better. These figures fully show that Hong Kong's national security law has given international investors "reassurance." The confidence index of Hong Kong citizens and global capital in Hong Kong continues to rise, and Hong Kong's status as a financial center has not been compromised in the slightest.
-With the Hong Kong National Security Law, Hong Kong society has more confidence in "one country, two systems" and its understanding has become more comprehensive and accurate.
For a long time, Hong Kong society has a lot of one-sided or even misunderstandings about "one country, two systems."
The "Regulations Amendment Disturbance" has taught the whole society of Hong Kong a vivid lesson, exposing the serious harm caused by the lack of Hong Kong's national security system, the intervention of external forces, and the misunderstanding of "one country, two systems".
The promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law enabled Hong Kong to clean up its roots and bring chaos to the fore.
According to a public opinion survey, 71.9% of the interviewees expressed their confidence in the prospect of "one country, two systems", 86% of the interviewees agreed that Hong Kong has the responsibility to maintain national security, and 76.2% of the interviewees believed that the rights of freedom granted by the Basic Law were not affected. 75.7% of the respondents were satisfied with the effectiveness of the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law.
More and more Hong Kong citizens realize that "one country" is the prerequisite and foundation of "two systems." Only when the country is safe can the prosperity of Hong Kong be guaranteed. When the powers are opposed, let alone the high degree of autonomy of the Special Administrative Region, it is not possible to impair the comprehensive governance power of the central government. More and more Hong Kong citizens realize that national security belongs to the central authority and that the central government is fundamentally responsible for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region’s national security affairs.
Facts have proved that only when the security bottom line of "one country" is firmly established can the "two systems" have more vitality and space, the welfare and interests of the general public of Hong Kong can be effectively safeguarded, and Hong Kong can write a beautiful chapter of prosperity, stability, and long-term stability.
2. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region resolutely fulfills its constitutional responsibility for safeguarding national security, and does its utmost to build a "bronze wall" for Hong Kong to safeguard national security
The full implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law is the responsibility of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, the responsibility of all sectors of Hong Kong society, and the common responsibility of every Hong Kong citizen.
First of all, the Special Administrative Region government and its governance team resolutely assume the responsibility for the full implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law. In the "Selection of Top Ten Events in the Governance of the Special Administrative Region Government in 2020", "Implementing Hong Kong’s National Security Law to Protect Hong Kong’s Social Stability" was rated as the top ten major events. This reflects the mainstream public opinion in Hong Kong society. Testimonials. As soon as the Hong Kong National Security Law was promulgated, the Chief Executive Carrie Lam led the special administrative region’s governance team to quickly establish the Special Administrative Region’s National Security Committee, the Police National Security Office, and the National Security Prosecution Division of the Department of Justice. The designated judges of the National Security were quickly in place. The relevant implementation rules of the Hong Kong National Security Law were gazetted and entered into force. As of the end of June, the law enforcement agencies of the Special Administrative Region have successively arrested 117 anti-China and Hong Kong leading figures and key elements suspected of violating the Hong Kong National Security Law, and prosecuted 64 people; investigated and dealt with the largest anti-China and Hong Kong "drug vector" who committed serious crimes in accordance with the law. Apple Daily. In the trial of the national security case, the judges designated by the national security law understand and apply the relevant provisions of the Hong Kong National Security Law more clearly and accurately, and implement more firmly. In key areas such as media and education, the work of bringing order out of chaos is progressing steadily. The government of the Special Administrative Region began to fully implement the oath of allegiance system for public officials, and 170,000 civil servants made solemn promises to the country and the Special Administrative Region. The Legislative Council performed its duties normally and passed a backlog of dozens of bills related to people's livelihood in one fell swoop. The publicity and education of the National Security Law has been vigorously promoted. The National Security Committee of the Special Administrative Region hosted the National Security Education Day for the first time. Many organizations carried out a series of training and lectures on the National Security Law to promote the introduction of the National Security Law into campuses, associations, and communities, and the general public’s national security awareness. Significantly enhanced. The government of the Special Administrative Region took the initiative to speak out against the smearing attacks of hostile forces inside and outside, effectively refuting all kinds of fallacies, clarifying doubts to Hong Kong and the international community, and issuing a voice of justice in defending national security. Especially in the face of illegal and unreasonable sanctions by the United States, the officials of the Special Administrative Region and the patriots and Hong Kong people are fearless and righteous. They all think that the country and their loyalty to Hong Kong feel the supreme honor. They have demonstrated the clamor of a patriot by taking practical actions.
Secondly, the Hong Kong Police Force "maintains loyalty and courage to protect the security of the home" and strictly enforces the Hong Kong National Security Law. The Hong Kong police are loyal guards of national security and Hong Kong's security. They acted upon the orders and investigated a number of national security crimes in accordance with the law, effectively safeguarding national security and ensuring social stability in Hong Kong. The heroic Hong Kong Police Force has always been at the forefront of stopping violence and chaos. In the face of the vicious mob, they came forward, some were stabbed by a spear, some were burned by a gasoline bomb, some were bitten by the mob's finger, and even were attacked by the mob and cut their neck. They paid a huge sacrifice. They and their families were "human flesh searched", viciously cursed, and traumatized both physically and mentally. However, insults and verbal abuse did not make them hesitate, and bricks and iron sticks did not make them afraid. The 30,000 Hong Kong police officers have been persevering and carrying forward with heavy burdens, always with the highest level of professionalism, maximum self-restraint, and minimum force. Use it to protect the 7.5 million citizens of Hong Kong. During the "Regulations Amendment Disturbance", no one died as a result of police enforcement, but more than 600 policemen were injured on duty. The Hong Kong Police Force deserves its reputation as the best police force in the world. The Hong Kong Police Force is the pride of Hong Kong, the pride of the country, and the heroes of Hong Kong.
Once again, patriotic people from all walks of life in Hong Kong are united to "support the national security" and gather a strong joint force to safeguard Hong Kong's national security laws. The United Front for "Supporting National Security Legislation" composed of people from all walks of life in Hong Kong launched a signature campaign throughout Hong Kong. In just 8 days, it received signature support from more than 2.9 million citizens. Many local citizens participated in a long queue for signatures; 110 groups and More than 2,600 people from the cultural and performing arts community in Hong Kong issued a joint statement in support of the National People's Congress's decision and hope that the Hong Kong National Security Law will be enacted as soon as possible. After the promulgation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, Hong Kong’s patriotic and Hong Kong political groups and people from all walks of life issued statements and accepted interviews, warmly welcomed and fully supported the Hong Kong National Security Law, actively carried out various forms of publicity and education, placed street stations, distributed leaflets, and advertised , Organize forums, engage in activities, and deliver the National Security Law to thousands of households. Since the Hong Kong police opened the "National Security Service Reporting Hotline" in November last year, they have received more than 100,000 reports, providing clues for the police to determine risks and investigate cases. Patriotism has always been the background color of Hong Kong society and is deeply embedded in the Lion Rock. When the mob tore down the five-star red flag and threw it into the sea, some Hong Kong citizens spontaneously rushed to the scene and raised the national flag again. In order to prevent the mob from destroying it again, they spontaneously formed a "flag protection team" to demonstrate the protection of Hong Kong and the protection of "one country, two systems" with practical actions. Determination and confidence. One thing that impressed me deeply and moved me deeply: a primary school teacher with three children passing by Amoy Plaza, was met with a group of black-clad thugs making trouble in the mall, and was very angry, so he sang the national anthem to fight against it. The mob was so angry that he beat him up, but he was not afraid and always sang the national anthem. He believes that "evil cannot conquer righteousness!" His move affected and led more citizens to spontaneously hold a flash action to sing the national anthem. As some enthusiastic citizens have said: "Having such a patriotic teacher is really a blessing for Hong Kong and a blessing for students." Let me ask, with such compatriots in Hong Kong, what kind of national security cannot be defended? Hong Kong citizens’ patriotic action is part of the Great Steel Wall built by more than 1.4 billion Chinese people. Who can shake it?
Finally, the international community’s righteous forces spoke out of their righteousness and formed a strong momentum to support our country’s just position in safeguarding national security.
The promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law is highly concerned by the international community, and the political, business, and academic circles have given positive comments. It is no doubt that the Hong Kong National Security Law is an important law of great practical significance and far-reaching historical significance.
At the 44th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council last year, more than 70 countries jointly or individually spoke in support of my country's adoption of the Hong Kong National Security Law; at the just-concluded 47th session, more than 90 countries spoke for China and supported my country position.
People from many countries have condemned the so-called Hong Kong-related sanctions by the United States and some other countries, saying that Hong Kong affairs are entirely China's internal affairs. The so-called sanctions of the United States have ulterior motives and will only make the world see its arrogant "double standards."
Many international media actively reported the enactment and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, supported the Chinese government in exercising its powers in accordance with the law, and spoke highly of the Hong Kong National Security Law.
Many multinational companies in Hong Kong have also expressed their support for the Hong Kong National Security Law.
As some foreign businessmen in Hong Kong have said, Hong Kong’s National Security Law is helping Hong Kong maintain long-term economic stability, and Hong Kong’s status as an international financial center is "very, very safe."
These voices of justice from the international community once again demonstrated that justice is in the hearts of the people.
I would also like to point out that, as the central government agency and force to implement the Hong Kong National Security Law, since its establishment, the National Security Agency in Hong Kong has performed its duties in accordance with the law and is an important pillar for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to maintain national security.
The Liaison Office of the Hong Kong Central Committee, the Office of the Special Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Garrison have played an important role in the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law.
Hong Kong's national security law has taken root, and the tigers and tigers have become the "patron saint" of Hong Kong's prosperity and stability.
3. With the escort of Hong Kong's National Security Law, Hong Kong will surely shine more brilliantly in the process of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation
At the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, President Xi Jinping solemnly declared to the world that the Chinese nation has ushered in a great leap from standing up, getting rich to becoming strong, and realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has entered an irreversible historical process!
Realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the greatest dream of the entire Chinese people since modern times, including the compatriots in Hong Kong and Macao. Hong Kong and Macau must not be absent for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and they will definitely not be absent! Everything the central government has done in Hong Kong and Macau, from the original design of "One Country, Two Systems" to the protection of Hong Kong by the National Security Law, is for the good of Hong Kong and Macau, and for the good of Hong Kong and Macau compatriots. With the unique advantages of "One Country, Two Systems", the important guarantees of the Constitution and the Basic Law, the strong protection of Hong Kong’s National Security Law, and the major opportunities brought about by the implementation of national strategies such as the co-construction of the "One Belt and One Road" and the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Hong Kong must It will become more and more secure, better and more attractive, and we are full of confidence in the future of Hong Kong.
First, Hong Kong has a lot to do in the historical process of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is relative to the humiliating history of China's gradual decline into a semi-colonial and semi-feudal society after modern times. The Opium War in 1840 was the beginning of modern Chinese history. The cession of Hong Kong is our unforgettable national shame. For 180 years, the destiny of Hong Kong has been closely linked to the motherland. In the various historical periods of our country's revolution, construction and reform, Hong Kong compatriots have made historical contributions to the country, and Hong Kong has also incorporated its own special experience into the magnificent epic of national rejuvenation. The cause of "One Country, Two Systems" is the colorful chapter in it. As a creative concept put forward by the Communist Party of China to solve the problem of national unification, "One Country, Two Systems" was the first to be put into practice in Hong Kong, and it has achieved universally recognized success. Although with the deepening of practice, many new situations, new problems and new challenges continue to be encountered, the original intention of the Communist Party of China to practice "one country, two systems" remains unchanged. The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China identified "adhere to "one country, two systems" and promote the reunification of the motherland" as one of the 14 basic strategies for adhering to and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era; the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee also "adhere to "one country, two systems" and maintain The long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and Macao and the promotion of the peaceful reunification of the motherland are listed as one of the 13 significant advantages of our country's national system and governance system. This fully demonstrates that the central government's policy of "one country, two systems" will remain unchanged and unshakable, and that the practice of "one country, two systems" will not be deformed or out of shape. The fact that Hong Kong’s National Security Law was promulgated and implemented a year ago, the fact that Hong Kong has gone through the haze and got out of the plight also precisely shows that "one country, two systems" has institutional resilience and strong vitality. Now, all Chinese people are marching towards the second centenary goal with heroic self-confidence and passionate aspirations. Everyone can imagine, when our country's second centenary goal is achieved, what kind of bright scene will the practice of "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong look like? We look forward to a more prosperous economy in Hong Kong at that time, a more balanced development of various undertakings, and a more harmonious and peaceful society. Especially now that the housing problem that everyone is worried about will be greatly improved, and we will say goodbye to subdivided housing and "cage homes." We look forward to Hong Kong at that time with greater progress in its democratic system, more complete rule of law, more adequate protection of rights and freedoms, and a more comprehensive development for everyone. Children can grow up healthily and happily, students can receive a good education, young people have a broad stage for employment and entrepreneurship, can pursue their dreams, the elderly can support their lives, and all citizens can enjoy a happier and healthier life. We look forward to Hong Kong at that time, with more fruitful results in the practice of "One Country, Two Systems", and the full realization of "Patriots governing Hong Kong". The mainstream values of patriotism and love for Hong Kong are deeply rooted.Into the hearts of the people. Hong Kong is deeply integrated into the overall situation of the country's development, and its unique advantages have been fully utilized. The movement of "Hong Kong is good, the country is good, the country is good, Hong Kong is better" is even more melodious. We look forward to Hong Kong at that time, in addition to the international financial, shipping, and trade center, will add new laurels, will become a vibrant, modern and highly civilized international metropolis, will become the world fascinated. The new Oriental Pearl. We believe that as long as the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government, all sectors of society, and all citizens unite as one, continue to carry forward the glorious patriotic tradition and fighting spirit, and work shoulder to shoulder with the people of the motherland, these beautiful visions will surely become reality.
Second, Hong Kong is very promising and must be escorted by the Hong Kong National Security Law.
Security is the prerequisite for development, and development is the goal of security.
Since the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, many gratifying changes have taken place in Hong Kong, from chaos to security.
This strong contrast of "chaos" and "security" makes us cherish Hong Kong's prosperity and stability even more, the steady and far-reaching practice of Hong Kong's "one country, two systems", and the value and role of Hong Kong's national security law.
To fully implement the Hong Kong National Security Law, there is still a lot of work to be done and heavy tasks.
I hope that everyone in Hong Kong will take responsibility. Everyone will turn their love for the country and Hong Kong and their desire for a better life into a conscious action to abide by the national security law, enforce the national security law, and defend the national security law, and form a special administrative region government. The society implements the Hong Kong National Security Law together and defends the new situation of Hong Kong National Security Law.
Only in this way can we give full play to the powerful power of Hong Kong's national security law to escort and correct evils, to ensure a "good home for the country," and to create a good environment for the better development of Hong Kong.
Third, Hong Kong has a promising future and must strictly implement the principle of "patriots ruling Hong Kong".
The reason is simple. Only by ensuring that there are firm patriots who have the ability to govern can govern Hong Kong, can Hong Kong be able to do a lot.
At present, to implement the principle of "patriots ruling Hong Kong", it is necessary to ensure the smooth progress of the upcoming election committee elections, legislative council elections, and chief executive elections, ensure that the power of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is in the hands of patriots and Hong Kong people, and promote good governance and good governance in Hong Kong.
On the one hand, we must resolutely exclude the anti-China chaos in Hong Kong from the special administrative region's governance structure.
In the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region under "One Country, Two Systems," people can live and work freely, and exercise their rights in accordance with the law, no matter what political stand or viewpoint they hold.
However, anyone who enters the special administrative region's governance structure must be a patriot and loves Hong Kong, and no anti-China chaos in Hong Kong will be allowed to enter the special administrative region's governance structure and become a governor through any means or methods.
This is an iron bottom line, and it also applies to the Macau Special Administrative Region.
To this end, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region must resolutely implement the relevant provisions of the new electoral system, give full play to the overall role of the Election Committee and the role of the qualification review committee, strictly control the relevant nomination and qualification review, and implement the entire process of supervision and review. Live any loopholes that may appear.
On the other hand, we must ensure that a firm patriot with strong governance capabilities is selected. Governing Hong Kong is no easy task. It is impossible to have no real skills. The burden on the governors is even heavier. Can you always grasp the general direction of Hong Kong's "one country, two systems" practice? Can you stick to your feelings for the people? Can you solve the deep-seated contradictions and problems in Hong Kong? Can it consolidate and enhance Hong Kong's competitiveness in the increasingly fierce international competition environment? Can Hong Kong achieve better development from a new historical starting point? All these have put forward new and higher requirements for the governors. They must not only love the country and Hong Kong, but also possess both moral integrity and ability, as well as the ability to govern. In other words, they must not only want to do things, but also know how to do things and be able to do things. First, be good at fully and accurately implementing the "one country, two systems" policy in the practice of governing Hong Kong, and be a firm patriot. Resolutely implement the central government’s power to administer the Special Administrative Region, implement the legal system and implementation mechanism for the Special Administrative Region to safeguard national security, sincerely support the "One Country, Two Systems" policy, consciously adhere to the "One Country" principle and respect the differences between the "Two Systems", and safeguard the central government. Combine full governance with the protection of a high degree of autonomy of the Special Administrative Region, play the strong backing role of the mainland of the motherland, and enhance Hong Kong’s own competitiveness, with a clear-cut stand for safeguarding the constitutional order of the Special Administrative Region established by the Constitution and the Basic Law, and allegiance to the People’s Republic of China and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region , Dare to fight words and deeds that harm national sovereignty, security, development interests, and harm the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong. The second is to be good at solving various contradictions and problems facing Hong Kong's development, and to be a patriot who takes responsibility. Have strategic thinking and broad vision, pay attention to investigation, research and scientific decision-making, be brave to take responsibility, dare to face tough, be good at deeds, open roads when encountering mountains, build bridges when encountering water, eliminate all kinds of diseases that affect the improvement of Hong Kong's social and political ecology, and break through the constraints of Hong Kong's economic development The various interest barriers related to the improvement of people’s livelihood have effectively solved prominent problems such as housing, employment, medical care, and the disparity between the rich and the poor, and continuously improved the governance capacity and level of the special administrative region. The third is to be good at doing practical things for the people and being a patriot who loves the people. Establish a sense of service that citizens are supreme, think about what the citizens think, worry about what the citizens are anxious, and alleviate the difficulties of the citizens, and always stick to the grassroots and be grounded. In particular, it is necessary to focus on the concerns of the general public, and make great efforts to adopt pragmatic and effective solutions to solve them. Every year, we will do several practical things that the general public can see, touch, and feel, and win the people’s trust with their administrative performance. The fourth is to be good at uniting all aspects of the force to be an inspiring patriot. To unite all the forces that can be united with a mind that embraces all rivers and is tolerant. Break the doorway, communicate more, exchange more, understand more, and make more channels when things happen, promote the most extensive unity under the banner of patriotism and love Hong Kong, and under the big goal of building a better Hong KongGather the most powerful force. As written in the lyrics of "Below the Lion Rock", "Abandon the distinction and seek commonality, let go of the contradictions in each other's hearts, and pursue the ideals together." Fifth, be good at fulfilling their duties and being a responsible patriot. Cherish the opportunity to hold a public office in the Special Administrative Region, and be responsible for the country and Hong Kong, and seek government in his place, be dedicated, work diligently, and fulfill his duties. The general public has high expectations for the governors emerging under the new electoral system, and they are very concerned in all aspects. I hope that they will show a new outlook and style, and use their actual actions and actual results to win the public’s reputation. Live up to the expectations of the central government.
At the meeting celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, President Xi Jinping firmly pointed out that the Chinese people will never allow any foreign forces to bully, oppress, or enslave us. Whoever wants to do so will definitely face the Great Wall of Steel built by more than 1.4 billion Chinese people. Battered!
Here, I also warn politicians in the United States and other countries and some politicians in the European Parliament: You brutally trampled on international law, interfered in our country’s internal affairs, and imposed meaningless so-called sanctions on us, which can only arouse our anger and anger. Contempt for you can only continue to sound the death knell of your agents in Hong Kong, the anti-China chaos in Hong Kong, and you can only lift a rock and drop it heavily on your own feet.
The long river of history has proven countless times that victory must belong to the indomitable Chinese people!
Dear guests and friends, happiness is the result of hard work.
Only those who struggle can engrave their footprints on the annual rings of history.
We firmly believe that with the strong backing of the great motherland, the full support of more than 1.4 billion Chinese people, and the unity and unremitting struggle of all Hong Kong compatriots, the practice of "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong will surely be stable and far-reaching, and Hong Kong's tomorrow will be better!
Finally, I wish the seminar a complete success!
On July 16, the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office uploaded Xia Baolong's speech as follows:
