Storyline


Introducing the national security legislation for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) helps protect the legitimate interests of both Hong Kong residents and foreign investors, Chief Executive of the HKSAR Carrie Lam said Friday night.

Business confidence in Hong Kong will improve as the place will be safer after its legal system and enforcement mechanisms to safeguard national security are established and improved, Lam said, stressing the interests of foreign investors will not be damaged.

Lam made the remarks at a press conference that was also attended by multiple other government officials and members of the Executive Council.

A draft decision on establishing and improving the legal system and enforcement mechanisms for the HKSAR to safeguard national security was submitted to the third session of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC) for deliberation on Friday.

National security is the top priority of every country and region, which is the foundation for residents' well-being, Lam said.

"I am deeply convinced that establishing and improving the legal system and enforcement mechanisms for the HKSAR to safeguard national security, first of all, will not affect the principles of 'one country, two systems', 'the people of Hong Kong governing Hong Kong' or 'Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy'. It will ensure the best system, which maintains long-term prosperity and stability in Hong Kong after its return, to be fully implemented. Second, it won't affect the capitalist system and the rule of law in Hong Kong, or the foreign investors' interests that are legally protected in Hong Kong," she said.

"Third, the legislative work will enable the SAR government, in accordance with laws, to effectively prevent, stop any act to endanger national security and organize terrorist activities, making Hong Kong a safer and more stable city. It will boost business confidence of local and foreign investors. Finally, the legislative work will not affect the rights and freedoms enjoyed by Hong Kong residents according to law," she said.

Over the past year, Hong Kong has seen rising risks of endangering national security and the alarm of terrorist activities in Hong Kong has been raised, she said.

Given the increasingly serious situation in the HKSAR, the executive and legislative authorities of the HKSAR have difficulties in completing on their own legislation for safeguarding national security in the foreseeable future, Lam said.

The HKSAR government supports the NPC's deliberation of the draft decision to establish and improve at the state-level legal system and enforcement mechanisms for the HKSAR to safeguard national security, Lam said.
