President's Message (July 2017)
HO Kwok Kwan, Thomas
July marked a significant milestone for Hong Kong as it celebrated the 20th anniversary of its return to the sovereignty of China. I was honoured to represent the HKIS at a series of official activities, meeting Chairman Xi Jinping, attending his welcome dinner and also enjoying the grand variety show, in addition to attending the Bay Area Forum. Other momentous occasions I attended were the flag-raising ceremony and the inaugural ceremony of the fifth term government of the HKSAR on 1 July. I was also honoured to meet representatives of the scientific and professional sectors of China and Hong Kong, as well as astronauts from China, while witnessing the grand military inspection ceremony and the welcome ceremony for the 16th Naval Taskforce of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.
