I hope that the general public can appreciate this exhibition carefully, and have a deep understanding of how the Chinese people stand up, and the changes in the fate of the country in the course of national rejuvenation and struggles of the times, and have a deeper understanding of the blood connection between Hong Kong and the motherland, and strengthen the sense of national identity and national pride. , So as to give play to the power of patriotism and love for Hong Kong.

  Lu Xinning expressed that he believes this exhibition is a vivid and special "history classroom" for Hong Kong compatriots.

Only by understanding the logic of history and integrating into the narrative of the country can Hong Kong open up new room for growth.

Only when the citizens of Hong Kong, especially the younger generation, can build their identity on the basis of knowing the country and Hong Kong, can they set up a "line of defense" in Hong Kong society and prevent gangsters and rioters from making trouble.

  Deng Zhonghua said that at the centenary of the Communist Party of China, the practice of "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong has entered a new stage of development. A correct view of history should be used to gather social consensus and set the direction for the advancement of the practice of "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong. Steady and long-term development on the right track is essential.

I hope that the SAR government and all sectors of society will use this exhibition as an opportunity to promote publicity and education on national history and national conditions, so that the majority of Hong Kong compatriots can feel the feelings of the family and the country from the best textbook of history and draw strength for progress.

The "Surging Hong Kong" section of the exhibition includes historical images of the Hong Kong labor movement and the Dongjiang Column in the first half of the last century, as well as vivid witnesses of the economic take-off in the 1970s and 1980s. There are also vivid witnesses of the economic take-off in the 1970s and 1980s. There are also some precious photos of the lives of Hong Kong citizens in various historical periods.
