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.
What sets Hong Kong apart is our ability to sustain social stability and economic growth. One key element of our success is the institutions that buttress our development. These include our legal system, which is underpinned by an independent judiciary, our legislature, and our civil service. Each operates independently but is an integral part of the whole. In short, ours is a system of government like many others.
However, Hong Kong has some distinguishing features, including a very internationally minded and outward-looking government, owing to our close integration into world markets long before globalization became a catchphrase. Within the ranks of our civil service and judiciary are nationals from Britain, Australia, the United States, Canada, and India.
Moreover, our Court of Final Appeal calls on some of the most esteemed minds of the common-law world. We have a large foreign population and one of the world’s largest consular corps. International chambers of commerce play a very active and vital role in government consultations. Our Basic Law even allows for foreign nationals to be elected to one-fifth of the seats in our legislature.
Hong Kong’s cosmopolitanism long ago planted the seeds of tolerance and respect in our approach to government. As a result, we are committed to dialogue and compromise as the only way to balance the many competing demands and opinions that pervade public affairs. Good government is not a competition. It’s not about winning or losing, or whose view or will prevails. It is about making the best decisions for the community as a whole.
Inevitably, this will often involve compromise. Indeed, as Hong Kong’s society has grown more sophisticated, it has also become more complex, multi-faceted, and pluralistic. This means that government can no longer afford to view issues in isolation; its operations need to be de-compartmentalized and flattened, as well as streamlined. This is a difficult task, given that some of our systems have been in place for many years, often
entrenched in law.
Of course, pragmatism has its limits, because good government is also about upholding core values. I have often referred to what I call the four pillars of Hong Kong’s success: the rule of law, a level playing field for business, a clean and efficient civil service, and the free flow of information. These are values that we simply will not compromise. To do so would mark the beginning of the end for Hong Kong.
Since reunification with our motherland, we have the added safeguard of the Basic Law, which gives effect to the principles of “one country, two systems” and “Hong Kong’s people running Hong Kong with a high degree of autonomy.”
Good government also requires sharing a vision of the future – the purposes and thinking behind public policies – with the community. Our vision is to develop Hong Kong as Asia’s world city. This is an all-encompassing brief, covering everything we do as a community and an economy in areas ranging from international trade to art, culture, and tourism.
The Basic Law embodies this vision, laying the foundations for our development over a 50-year period and providing the freedom and the power for us to position ourselves as Asia’s world city – and to do it on our own. At the same time, it also embodies the depth of the central government’s support for Hong Kong. It is thus crucial to the good governance of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region.
In many areas – financial services, infrastructure, communications technology, and tourism – I would say we have reached our goals for Hong Kong. Hardly a day goes by when we don’t read something in the local press that refers to our status as Asia’s world city. Even when people feel we have not lived up to the standards expected of a world city, we are glad to be held to a high benchmark, because it keeps us on our toes.
That may sound disingenuous to some, but Hong Kong’s officials share a common mission to maintain the stability and prosperity of our city. Our duty is to make Hong Kong a better place for us all, without hidden agendas or quid pro quos. It is an onerous and solemn undertaking, uplifting one day and extremely frustrating the next. But, above all, it is an honor and a privilege to play such a role in our society, and I know that the vast majority of officials, legislators, judges, and civil servants with whom I’ve worked would agree.
Donald Tsang is acting Chief Executive of Hong Kong.
Source text - English GLOBE STUDY DEMONSTRATES TELBIVUDINE PROVIDES SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER RESPONSE ON ANTIVIRAL MEASURES VS. LAMIVUDINE IN PATIENTS WITH CHRONIC HEPATITIS B, THE 10TH LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH WORLDWIDE
• Achieving early viral suppression is associated with improved clinical outcomes
• 95% of telbivudine-treated patients who have undetectable virus at 6 months remain so at one year
San Francisco, November 14, 2005 – Results from the ongoing GLOBE study demonstrate that the investigational drug telbivudine provides significantly greater response on all evaluated virologic markers compared to lamivudine after one year, in both HBeAg-positive and HBeAg-negative patients with chronic hepatitis B. Idenix Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Novartis Pharma AG announced the results of the GLOBE study at the 56th Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases in San Francisco today.
Patients treated with telbivudine achieved significantly greater viral suppression than patients treated with lamivudine. Patients treated with telbivudine also experienced significantly higher rates of non-detectable viral levels. The GLOBE study, a phase III clinical trial, includes 1,367 patients from 20 countries and is the largest registration trial of chronic hepatitis B patients ever conducted. The GLOBE study is the first global chronic hepatitis B registration trial to include patients from China, where the disease is highly prevalent.
“Despite recent advances in the treatment of chronic hepatitis B, there remains a need for new safe and effective treatment options,” said Dr. Ching-Lung Lai, Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Gastroenterology and Hepatology Division at the University of Hong Kong, and lead investigator of the GLOBE study. “The potent viral suppression achieved with telbivudine has the potential to reduce the serious complications associated with chronic hepatitis B and telbivudine’s favorable safety and convenience profile in trials to date also may make it a promising treatment option for patients, including those requiring long-term therapy.”
Chronic hepatitis B is the tenth leading cause of death worldwide with approximately 350 million people chronically infected (lifelong infection). Additionally, chronic hepatitis B is responsible for up to 80 percent of the world’s primary liver cancer , and annually an estimated 1.2 million individuals die from hepatitis B-related chronic liver disease.
