National security law: Opportunity for HK's prosperity
Since June 2019, Hong Kong has seen more than one year of non-stop protests and unrest. The prolonged disturbance has dealt a serious blow to Hong Kong's economy and people's livelihood. Rioters frequently and brutally attacked innocent residents who disapproved of their destructive acts. In 2019, Hong Kong's economy shrank 1.2%, the first recession in a decade. Excessive unlawful foreign meddling in Hong Kong protests jeopardized the "One Country, Two Systems" principle. Aiming at tackling the growing national security risk, the new national security law for Hong Kong came into force. The law will safeguard Hong Kong's stability and prosperity as well as residents' freedoms and rights.
