That has imposed greater downside risks for Hong Kong’s economy, and the governmen

Looking back at the past 22 years, Hong Kong has experienced some changes, ups and downs in the politi上海夜生活女神会所

cal, economic and social areas. Yet, Hong Kong has, generally speaking, remained stable and prosperous, she said.

Backed by the motherland and open to the world, Hong Kong has continued to leverag

e its unique advantages under the “one country, two systems” principle, said the chief executive.

Lam made the remarks at a reception to celebrate the 22nd anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to the motherland and the establishment of the HKSAR.

Every year, July 1 is an opportunity to look back on the past and look forward to a new year ahead for the SAR, she said.

“Serving over 7 million people in Hong Kong, we also have much to do in the future to improve people’s livelihoods,” said Lam.

That requires Hong Kong society to make plans together and work in concert, Lam said.

She also took note of the problems the city is currently facing, including the unstable

external environment and the unsolved trade conflicts between China and the United States.

ritain’s Conservative Party leadership contest frontrunner Boris Johnson has backtracked on his prev

上海夜生活ious comments made on Brexit negotiations, saying there is only a “millio

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “come wh

at may, do or die” with a no-deal Brexit, Johnson stated he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.

In a Conservative party hustings on Wednesday evening, Johnson said: “It’s absolutely vital that we prepare for a no-deal outcome if we’re going to get the deal that we need.

“上海夜生活女神会所I don’t think that’s where we’re going to end up — I think it’s a million to one against — but it’s vital that we prepare.”

The EU has said it will not return to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, rejected three

times by UK Parliament, and experts are sceptical a new prime minister can secure any changes to the

controversial Northern Ireland backstop hated by Eurosceptic MPs by the end of October.
