CE meets talented youths

July 1, 2018

Chief Executive Carrie Lam met more than 100 Hong Kong youths who won international competitions in the past year at a tea gathering at Government House today.


A total of 250 people took part in the gathering including the youngsters, parents, headmasters, teachers and tutors.


Mrs Lam said she feels excited whenever she reads news reports about young Hong Kong people winning international competitions and takes a record of them.


She said she invited this group to the gathering on the 21st anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to celebrate and encourage them to continue to contribute to Hong Kong.


"I am proud of the efforts they have made during the process. Every young person and kid has his own potential and is the future and hope of Hong Kong. We should give them room to realise their potential.


“I hope people from various sectors would work together to nurture them into a new generation with a sense of national identity, an affection for Hong Kong and an international perspective, who are also passionate about and committed to the well-being of our community.”


The youths were winners in 40 different international competitions, with the youngest of them only four years old.
