I will honour the pledges I have made -- to uphold justice, protect the rights of the people, safeguard the rule of law, clean government, freedom and democracy which are among the core values of Hong Kong, and take an inclusive approach towards different opinions and views.

I will do my utmost to safeguard human rights and make sure that press freedom and the independence of the media are respected.

I will promote the development of a democratic political system in accordance with the provisions of the Basic Law and the relevant decisions of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress.

I will further develop the political appointment and accountability system to enhance the efficiency of the Government.

I will also build a service-oriented government, establish partnership with the people and encourage public engagement to draw energy from every corner of our community.

The new-term Government will continue to uphold the concept of "One country, two systems" and the principle of "Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong" with a high degree of autonomy. While safeguarding the interests of our country and Hong Kong, we should properly address the relationship between "One country" and "two systems." We will also strengthen unity and cohesion between different sectors of our society.

Effective policy implementation hinges on effective governance. The relationship between the legislature and the executive is an integral part of governance. For bills to be passed and policies endorsed, we need the support of the Legislative Council as well as the community at large.

It is my hope that my Government will strengthen communication and co-operation with the Legislative Council. With one heart and one vision, we will work for the well-being of our people.
