The Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs, Mr Patrick Nip, has a very wide and far-reaching portfolio, including co-ordinating the government's efforts in taking forward the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area, and liaising with the Electoral Affairs Commission, which is responsible for the conduct and supervision of various public elections in Hong Kong.
While we all agree that the Bay Area offers huge potential, we would benefit from learning about how Hong Kong, Macao and the cities in Guangdong should collaborate for a win-win result – in terms of people, goods, capital and information flows – for all cities involved. Part of the challenges stem from the different legal systems, currencies and cultures, but these hurdles are not insurmountable.
The Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs has agreed to meet with members at our special "Town Hall Forum Series" on 27 October to discuss these and other issues. Sign up today for this exclusive, closed-door forum and also share your thoughts with the HKSAR Government.
