"Some people are worried that the central government will tighten its policy toward Hong Kong. I believe that such worries are not necessary." Li made the remarks at a press conference after the conclusion of the annual legislative session.

Li emphasized that it is the basic state policy of China's government to adhere to the principles of "One country, two systems", the people of Hong Kong governing Hong Hong, the people of Macao governing Macao, and both regions enjoying high degree of autonomy.

"'One country, two systems' has been written in the constitution and the basic law of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, which form the constitutional basis of the Hong Kong SAR, " Li said, "It is also stipulated in the basic law of Hong Kong what system should be practiced in the region."
