    • Vice-Premier Li’s visit to Hong Kong

    News Content 

    • Vice-Premier Li KeQiang ended his three-day visit with a breakfast with property tycoon and public outcry over police’s tighter security treatment against activists during his stay.
    • The latest example of the police heavy-handed treatment came as Li visited the University of Hong Kong yesterday. Three students were dragged to the ground. One of them was locked up for an hour.
    • 100 protestors led by LSD legislator Leung Kwok-hung was stopped by more than 20 police on a footbridge leading to the new government headquarters at Tamar, Admiralty. A red bamboo coffin was destroyed during the confrontation.
    • It was said between 2,000 and 3,000 police officers were mobilized to protect Li each day.
    • Police chief Andy Tsang Wai-hung said the measures taken were necessary to ensure Li’s safety. But the chairman of the legislative council’s security panel, James To said the police were not protecting Li but had tried to prevent him from being embarrassed.

    Questions

    • The heavy treatment has hampered the freedom of expression in Hong Kong.
    • The police have to explain why such tight security is made. Without a detailed explanation, the tight security is totally unnecessary, and thus a waste of public money.

    • Vice-Premier Li’s visit to Hong Kong

    News Content 

    • Visiting Vice-Premier Li KeQiang announced a package for more than 30 measures to boost the local economy by strengthening Hong Kong’s role in the internationalization of the Yuan.
    • One of the key measures is to support the stock market by allowing mainland investors to invest in Hong Kong stocks by launching the index-tracking Exchange Traded Fund backed by a portfolio of Hong Kong stocks.
    • Andrew Fung, the head of treasury and investment at HS Bank, quoted by SCMP, said: ‘China is speeding up its pace of internationalizing the currency by these new measures.’
    • Johnny Lau, the current affairs commentator familiar with China politics, said Beijing is of the view that if economic issues are not handled properly, they would escalate into political problems.

    Questions

    • The key measure announced by Li is yet to solve the city’s deep-rooted conflicts. Without a sound economic and social change, the measure itself only helps widen the rich-poor gap.
