Also on Tuesday afternoon, a local think tank – One Country Two Systems Youth Forum – submitted suggestions to the chief executive hopeful by handing over 10 proposals to his team.
The proposals are eight pages long, with 20 articles covering various aspects, including government capacity, district management, youth in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, education on the Basic Law, and telling the story of Hong Kong.
Henry Ho Kin-chung, founder and chairman of the OCTS Youth Forum, said that Hong Kong needs to re-establish a high-level think tank responsible for advising the chief executive and directly supervised by the Chief Executive’s Office.
