The First Session of the 14th National People's Congress was successfully held on March 5, 2023. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang delivered the Report on the Work of the Government at the meeting.

The Report clarified the direction for the country's future development. Highlights of the Report included expanding domestic demand, developing the digital economy and platform economy, supporting the development of private enterprises, attracting and making use of foreign investment. Deputies to the NPC from DAB had also put forward proposals to strengthen cross-border e-commerce, expand stock connect, achieve "dual carbon" goal. Our proposals on green finance bore resemblance to “expediting the development of green transformation” under the 8 key tasks of the State Council this year. We would strive to implement the spirit of the Report and further promote the integration of industries in Hong Kong into the national development and give full play to Hong Kong's strengths to contribute to the national development.

The Report also reinforced that the country would dutifully ensure the full and resolute implementation of the principle of "One Country, Two Systems", under which the people of Hong Kong administer Hong Kong, with a high degree of autonomy, administer Hong Kong according to the rule of law, safeguard the constitutional order of the HKSAR as defined under the Constitution and the Basic Law, firmly uphold the principle that Hong Kong and Macao should be governed by patriots; support Hong Kong and Macau to develop economy, improve wellbeing of their people, and maintain the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong. The DAB believed that this would be the key for Hong Kong’s transition from stability to prosperity, instilling confidence and vitality in the development of the society. We hoped that the Hong Kong society would stand united, to seize the opportunities under Chinese path to modernization, integrate into the national development, contribute to the country’s advancement and rejuvenation of the Chinese nation!
