The Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs, Mr Stephen Lam, met with representatives of the agriculture and fisheries sector, led by legislator Wong Yung-kan, at the Government headquarters this morning (August 13) to listen to the sector's views on the Green Paper on Constitutional Development. Mr Lam stressed that the Administration was committed and determined to implement universal suffrage in accordance with the requirements and principles of the Basic Law. He pointed out that the Green Paper had set out all the key issues involved, and that once these were resolved, a consensus was achievable. He said that in implementing universal suffrage according to the Basic Law, we must comply with the following four principles:- (i) meeting the interests of different sectors of society; (ii) facilitating the development of the capitalist economy; (iii) in accordance with the principle of gradual and orderly progress; and (iv) in line with the actual situation of the HKSAR. Mr Lam urged the sector, like the community at large, to continue to attach importance to constitutional development and give their views.
