[Explanation] A few days ago, the Executive Council of the Hong Kong SAR Government passed the restructuring plan for the new SAR government.

Li Jiachao, the candidate for the sixth chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, adopted the restructuring plan proposed by the current SAR government. He said that the structure of the new SAR government will be increased from the current "three divisions and thirteen bureaus" to "three divisions and fifteen bureaus". "Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau", the Transport and Housing Bureau was split into "Transportation and Logistics Bureau" and "Housing Bureau", the Environment Bureau was expanded and renamed "Environment and Ecology Bureau", etc.

In this regard, a number of Hong Kong cultural tourism practitioners expressed their support for the relevant content of the restructuring plan in an exclusive interview with China News Agency.

  I think this new department in charge of culture, sports and tourism will bring tangible benefits to Hong Kong.

Because the previous department's work was too heavy.

So I believe this move will unlock many new possibilities for Hong Kong citizens.

Everything will be better.

Therefore, I hope that customs clearance can be resumed as soon as possible, including with mainland cities and global countries, so that we can once again show the vitality of Hong Kong to domestic and foreign tourists.

I think culturally, we have the West Kowloon Cultural District, which is good.

This summer, the Hong Kong Palace Museum will also open soon.

For local tourists, the M+ Museum is fantastic.

  [Explanation] According to Zhao Shuang, the managing director of the Guangdong-Hong Kong Hotel in Hong Kong, the establishment of the Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau is at the right time, and support should be vigorously promoted.

He believes that this is a timely help for the hotel industry, which has been hit hard by the epidemic, and it has also brought light to the entire cultural and tourism industry.

  The government should invest more resources to develop and promote the development of culture, sports and tourism.

In terms of system, we hope to be flexible, flexible, multi-faceted support and comprehensive support.

Among them, culture and sports should make full use of the country's resources and comprehensively promote and develop in accordance with the actual situation of Hong Kong.

At the same time, it has widely absorbed talents from the mainland and the world to integrate into the development of Hong Kong.

In Hong Kong, in addition to the four pillars of industry, there are industries with obvious advantages, among which are the cultural and creative industries.

Therefore, the Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau can further promote the cultural and creative industries, which is of great help in promoting the overall economy of Hong Kong.

  [Explanation] In response to the expansion and renaming of the Environment Bureau to the "Environment and Ecology Bureau" in the government's restructuring plan, Liang Zhifeng, head of the Tai Tong Organic Ecological Park in Hong Kong, expressed his support.

He believes that protecting the ecological environment is crucial to the sustainable development of Hong Kong society, and it is also related to the healthy growth of the next generation in Hong Kong.

  The next government said that they will vigorously promote ecological education or expand some relevant departments. I think this matter must be fully supported.

In fact, many people think that there are only high-rise buildings in Hong Kong, but when you see these places, in fact, we still have many precious resources. It depends on how our generation protects them and cherishes them.

Only in this way can we have the next generation and fulfill our responsibilities to the next generation.
