President Hu Jintao met with Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Donald Tsang on Friday afternoon.



During the meeting, Hu said that Hong Kong has gained better development momentum with its economy keeping growing in recent years.


Hu expressed the hope that Tsang and the HKSAR government will continue to focus on developing economy and improving people's livelihood and governance, and pressing ahead with various undertakings in Hong Kong by relying on Hong Kong compatriots.


The central government will stick to the principles of "one country, two systems," "Hong Kong people running Hong Kong" and a high degree of autonomy, and will handle affairs strictly according to the Basic Law.


"The central government will, as always, give full support to the HKSAR chief executive and the government in their governance according to law, and will make efforts to promote the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong," Hu said.


Tsang thanked President Hu for his care and concern for Hong Kong and Hong Kong people. He said Hong Kong has enjoyed selfless support of the central government and the motherland since Hong Kong returned to China 10 years ago.


"Hong Kong citizens have realized the advantages of 'one country, two systems' from their experiences, and the importance of strengthening exchange and cooperation with the mainland," Tsang said.


The HKSAR government and people from all walks of life will make concerted efforts to promote the prosperity, stability and harmony of Hong Kong, Tsang added.


Hu arrived in Hong Kong earlier on Friday to attend the celebrations marking the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China and the swearing-in ceremony of the third-term government of the HKSAR.
