HKSAR celebrates 40th anniversary of reform and opening up of the country (with photo)
The year 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the implementation of the reform and opening up policies of the country, a momentous occasion.
Under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary for Administration, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government has formed a steering committee to co-ordinate and oversee the major celebration events organised by the Government.
"To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up of the country, the Government will adopt 'Joint Development·Shared Prosperity' as the theme of the celebration and will roll out the theme music shortly. The Government also will organise a series of celebration events, including a large-scale seminar and a thematic exhibition, and launch a dedicated website for sharing information with the public on various events related to the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up of the country," a government spokesman said today (August 9).
The spokesman added that the Chief Secretary for Administration had outlined to community and business leaders as well as foreign consuls-general in Hong Kong the various celebration events and promotion activities planned. In addition, the Government launched in August this year the "Accreditation Scheme for Community Events in the HKSAR for the Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Reform and Opening Up of the Country" to encourage community and district organisations to organise different kinds of celebration events. Organisers of accredited events can use the official logo and slogan designed by the Government in their celebration events and publicity materials (see photo).
The Government looks forward to the active participation of the community in celebrating the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up of the country.
