On the day of my visit, the Hong Kong Government was focused on the launch of the second public consultation on constitutional reform. They were consequently unavailable to meet me. It was nevertheless valuable for me to visit Hong Kong on my way back from mainland China, in light of recent events and our ongoing interest under the Joint Declaration. I was able to meet the President of the Legislative Council and a wide range of legislators, which was particularly important given their key role in the next stage of the constitutional reform process, as well as Chief Justice Geoffrey Ma and representatives of the business community.
