On July 1, President Xi Jinping delivered an important speech at the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to the motherland and the inauguration ceremony of the sixth-term government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, emphasizing that the rich practice of "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong has left us a lot of valuable experience. Many profound revelations.

Only by deeply understanding and accurately grasping the practical laws of "one country, two systems" can we ensure that the cause of "one country, two systems" will always move steadily and far in the right direction.

  President Xi Jinping's important speech systematically summed up the development process of "One Country, Two Systems" in Hong Kong, profoundly expounded a series of major theoretical and practical issues, and clearly expressed his firm position of adhering to "One Country, Two Systems" for a long time. Provides thought guidance and points out the direction of action.

President Xi's important speech has not only strengthened the firm confidence of the majority of Hong Kong residents in a better future, but will also bring together the majestic force of the sons and daughters of the Chinese people to move forward hand in hand and forge ahead in unity.

  "One country, two systems" is a great initiative that embodies Chinese wisdom and is a new contribution made by the Chinese nation to world peace and development, and has been generally approved by the international community.

"One country, two systems" has achieved the resumption of the exercise of sovereignty over Hong Kong in a peaceful manner, safeguarded national sovereignty, security and development interests, and has won the full support of the people of the motherland.

"One country, two systems" has maintained Hong Kong's long-term prosperity and stability, and has been unanimously supported by Hong Kong residents.

Practice has eloquently proved that "one country, two systems" has strong vitality, scientificity, feasibility and resilience, and is a good system.

  The poor reason leads to the knowledge, and the actual practice is put into practice.

The practice of "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong has not been smooth sailing, and ups and downs have prompted us to continue to carry out theoretical innovation and practical exploration, so as to maintain and develop this system well.

President Xi proposed the "four musts", that is, the principle of "one country, two systems" must be fully and accurately implemented; position and advantage.

This is an inevitable requirement and fundamental guideline for Hong Kong to achieve long-term stability, prosperity and development, and we must deeply understand and accurately grasp it.

  We must deeply understand the spirit of President Xi's important speech, strengthen bottom-line thinking, give full play to Hong Kong's special advantages, and focus on grasping the relationship between the four pairs.

The first is the relationship between "one country" and "two systems". Adhering to "one country" is the premise and foundation of implementing "two systems". The tighter the bottom line of "one country", the greater the space for "two systems".

The second is the relationship between the central government and the special administrative region. The central government has the overall governance over the special administrative region, and the central government fully respects and firmly maintains the high degree of autonomy enjoyed by the special administrative region in accordance with the law.

The third is the relationship between patriots and those who hold different values. The governance power should be firmly in the hands of patriots, and it should be emphasized that "patriots governing Hong Kong" are not about "universalism", but to achieve the highest level under the banner of patriotism and love for Hong Kong. Broad solidarity, continuous expansion of positive forces in building Hong Kong, and greater social inclusion.

The fourth is the relationship between the mainland of the motherland and the special administrative region. Hong Kong relies on the motherland and is connected to the world. It must turn its advantages into development efficiency, firmly grasp development as the golden key to solving problems, and seize opportunities to improve its own competitiveness.

  There is no limit to the vastness, sailing but the trade winds.

As long as we comprehensively, accurately and unswervingly implement the "one country, two systems" policy, enrich the development of the "one country, two systems" theory and practice, and persist in improving the "one country, two systems" institutional system, Hong Kong's advantages will be more evident, and Hong Kong's future will be even better.
