Secretary for Security answering

here the answer from a Secretary of the "Security Office" - actually it is somewhat a waste of space in this blog as it is 99% a copy of the message can be found on the "Commissioner's" latest news - but anyhow here is the message - together with the link where the text has been copied from or been created in "happy togetherness". Creative answer but it doesnt show too much responsibilty about all the business concerns and desasters coming up - suddenly business is NOT important anymore in Hong Kong ?
Thank you for your e-mail of 7 April addressed to the Chief Executive. The matter has been relayed to this Bureau and I am authorised to give you a reply.
The HKSAR Government has reflected the views/concerns of the Hong Kong business community to the relevant Mainland authorities. To the understanding of the HKSAR Government, foreigners are welcome to China. The Chinese visa is issued in accordance with laws and regulations of China, with reference of the practice of hosting countries of previous Olympic Games and other international sporting events. Compared to most other countries, it is relevantly easy and convenient to apply for a Chinese visa. Genuine visitors to China and those attending Olympic Games will not be affected. Since the establishment of the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China in the Hong Kong SAR (OCMFA), it has always been providing efficient service to facilitate foreigners' visa application. The Office will continue to work in the same spirit. For more information, please visit OCMFA's website at

HKSAR Government = spineless lacky
