[Explanation] On July 1, the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to the motherland and the inauguration ceremony of the sixth government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region were grandly held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center.

Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, State President and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, attended and delivered an important speech.

In an interview with a reporter from China News Agency, many Hong Kong citizens said that President Xi Jinping's important speech reflects the central government's care and love for Hong Kong, and makes Hong Kong citizens full of confidence in the future.

  I think President Xi's visit to Hong Kong this time (inspection) has injected a new impetus into Hong Kong and brought hope to Hong Kong.

So for us young people, it is to give us a new kind of encouragement and support, so we young people will use the great platform of this era to work hard to create a career, and hope that Hong Kong will have a better tomorrow.

  [Concurrent] Hong Kong citizen Ms. Li

  It is hoped that the government can further improve people's livelihood, such as lowering housing prices, and then improving people's living standards.

  [Concurrent] Mr. Mo, a Hong Kong citizen

  I hope that the new government can improve people's livelihood as mentioned in the platform, so that young people in Hong Kong will have more opportunities, (and) solve the housing problem. This is what Hong Kong people hope for most.

  [Concurrent] Mr. Chen, a Hong Kong citizen

  In fact, my biggest hope is indeed that they can care about the younger generation, their life, work and growth, especially if they call Hong Kong their home, so that they can work with peace of mind and make certain contributions, especially housing prices. Controlling housing prices will allow these young people to settle down earlier.

  [Concurrent] Hong Kong citizen Ms. Lin

  I hope that the new chief executive, Li Jiachao, can benefit the people of Hong Kong. I hope that, as President Xi said, Hong Kong citizens can live in bigger houses, young people can study and work better in education, and Hong Kong old people can live better in the future.
