HKSAR 10th Anniversary


The red-letter date of July 1, 2007 marks a milestone as the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). This historic day is a uniquely memorable moment for our country as a whole, but especially for the people of Hong Kong. The 10th anniversary has been keenly anticipated, presenting a golden opportunity to review our past challenges and successes, while looking forward to a bright and prosperous future.


Hong Kong’s celebrations calendar runs from April through to December. The 460 events run by Government and non-Government organisations cover a wide variety, from ceremonial and cultural occasions to exhibitions and conferences. I am very happy to see that the pride of the population is being expressed in many activities at the district level, which will provide ample opportunities for members of the community to enjoy the spirit of the 10th anniversary celebrations.

The big day itself promises to be a mix of a ceremonial and celebratory events, including a flag-raising ceremony, a parade, carnivals and, of course, a spectacular fireworks display to light up the night sky in a blaze of colour.

At the heart of all the events and celebrations is recognition of the success of ‘One Country, Two Systems’. In the decade since our reunification with the Mainland, this concept has grown from an untested idea into a living, breathing reality. Hong Kong people are running Hong Kong with the high degree of autonomy that was promised. And the Central People’s Government has been unwavering in its commitment to make this happen.

Underpinned by the Basic Law, our freedoms and lifestyle, and our legal, social and economic systems remain a vital and integral part of our lives. With our famous can-do spirit, we continue to thrive and prosper; we continue to increase and cement our links with the Motherland, while maintaining our position as an international financial, trading, logistics and tourism hub in Asia.

The 10th Anniversary is a joyous event for the whole of Hong Kong and involves everyone. I deeply appreciate the time, energy and commitment that many people are devoting to the anniversary celebrations and events. With such broad support and encouragement from many different strata and sectors of society I am sure that the 10th anniversary celebrations will be a resounding success.
