Deputy Tien is the chairman of the G2000 Group, the chairman of the Hong Kong Employees Retraining Board and the chairman of the Hong Kong Standing Committee on Language Education and Research.
Q5. Donald Tsang said earlier this year that 2009 would be the most difficult for Hong Kong? What do you think? How hard have the banks in Hong Kong and Macao been hit by the global financial crisis?
