I have been a part of Hong Kong’s civil service for more than three decades. Throughout my entire career I have worked with many people whose driving impulse has been to serve Hong Kong. That remains as true today as it did almost 40 years ago, when I first entered government.
The past couple of weeks have been among the most momentous periods since our reunification with China in 1997, and it has left me in the hot seat as Hong Kong’s Acting Chief Executive. It is not easy to describe the enormous level of responsibility I feel.
