Chen Dong, Deputy Director of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the HKSAR, was invited to attend the DAB's seminar on “Learning and Implementing the Spirit of the National People's Congress and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference". Chen Dong shared the main spirit of the Two Sessions, including its significance and major achievements. He emphasized that the unanimous election of President and Chairman of the Central Military Commission by Xi Jinping was the most important political achievement of the event, demonstrating the unprecedented unity of the Chinese nation to the world.
Chen Dong suggested that to better learn and implement the spirit of the Two Sessions, DAB members should grasp the opportunities and contributions for Hong Kong in the Chinese path to modernization, as well as the direction and path of Hong Kong's unique position and advantages. They should also reflect on the critical issues that Hong Kong must deeply consider in this new stage.
Furthermore, Chen Dong advised DAB members to use language that is understandable to the public and to speak more about issues related to the daily lives and interests of Hong Kong people. They should use storytelling and examples when communicating with the grassroots of the community.
