The minister said the SAR’s return to the motherland is an important component of the Party’s 100 years of success, as the party has, for many years, nurtured the steady growth of the principle and cared for Hong Kong people’s well-being.
Cheung wrote on his weekly blog that he’s sure that the SAR can take flight again – provided people cherish the “stable and rational” situation achieved by Beijing’s enactment of the national security law for Hong Kong.

“Without the Chinese Communist Party, there’s no China today. This is undisputed truth in history,” Cheung said.
