Law to Help Restore Stability and Certainty

For Immediate Release

 

The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC) considers the passage of the National Security Law (NSL) as instrumental in helping to restore stability and certainty to Hong Kong, which has been severely impacted by the social unrest since last year. 

Violent protests have damaged the reputation of Hong Kong as a safe, international city, resulting in reduced tourism and business interests. Subsequently, Hong Kong has suffered further from the Covid-19 pandemic.  As the economy gradually returns to normality, we need a stable environment which the NSL aims to provide. 

Many jurisdictions also have similar national security laws in place, so operating in such an environment should not be unusual for international businesses. With now the introduction of NSL, we hope that law and order can be upheld and that stability returns to Hong Kong.
