HKMAO official meets District Officers

April 18, 2024

A delegation of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government District Officers (DOs) was received by State Council Hong Kong & Macao Affairs Office Deputy Director Wang Linggui in Beijing today.


Led by Secretary for Home & Youth Affairs Alice Mak, the delegation was on the second day of its district governance study programme in the capital.


Meeting members of the delegation, Mr Wang said the Hong Kong SAR Government completed the enactment of the Basic Law Article 23 legislation, laying down the foundation for a more stable development of the society, and leading Hong Kong to acquire new development opportunities.


He encouraged members to keep placing people first, keep up the good district works with diligence and responsibility, fully support the administration of the Hong Kong SAR Government in accordance with the law, and enhance the efficacy of district governance.


Miss Mak outlined to Mr Wang the objectives and desired learning outcomes of the study programme.


She said this was the first time that the Hong Kong SAR Government arranged for all DOs to study at the National Academy of Governance (NAG) after improving district governance.


It is of paramount significance for the Hong Kong SAR Government DOs to receive training at the NAG, which enables them to better understand the background theories of grassroots governance and enhance the implementation of district works to a higher level, Miss Mak added.


In the morning, the delegation received a lecture on Xi Jinping’s Philosophy on Grassroots Governance, delivered by NAG Vice President Gong Weibin. They also visited the Museum of the Communist Party of China to understand more about the party’s 100-year history.
