Watch This | Facts speak louder than words: Luo Huining
Thursday (April 15) morning's opening ceremony of National Security Education Day kicks off a series of activities to mark its first celebration since the implementation of the National Security Law for Hong Kong.
Luo Huining, Director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in HK and National Security Adviser to the Committee for Safeguarding National Security of the HKSAR gives a speech at the ceremony.
Luo says that when putting forward his holistic view of national security, President Xi Jinping pointed out that security and development are complementary and mutually reinforcing, and that security is the foremost prerequisite for development. This has been the winning formula for China’s miraculous economic growth and lasting social stability since the reform and opening-up of the country. The effectiveness of the strategy has also been validated by the major shift from chaos to stability in Hong Kong. Instead of the massive capital flight as predicted by some doomsayers, Hong Kong’s aggregate balance has risen to a four-year high for the past year. Some foreign media outlets also acknowledged the fact that the National Security Law further stabilized Hong Kong’s markets and investment environment. Facts speak louder than words.
