As founding chairman of Sino-US Exchange Foundation and National Committee Vice Chairman, in the United States Chamber of Commerce luncheon speech, Tung Chee-Hwa speaks on the development of New China, Sino-US relations and the role of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Responding to reporters question of Hong Kong's role in national development, he said that knowledge is very important in the 21st century. Faced with Mainland China, particularly in the Pearl River Delta region's rapid economic development, Hong Kong should take advantage of "one country two systems" rule of law with human resources, international metropolis and competitive advantages to continue to strengthen human resources education, and to develop Hong Kong into a knowledge-based economy and society.

 

Mr Tung adds that over the past 30 years, Sino-US relations have been moving forward in some places but because of longstanding misperception, the two countries still do not trust each other, such as the recent Sino-US dispute over arising tire tariff. However, he believes that the two sides can sit down, discuss and reach a consensus on the solution, while China will continue to work with United States and other countries on issues such as climate change, environmental protection, energy security, weapons proliferation, international terrorism, the world financial crisis and trade protection measures as joint consultation, and actively seeking solutions.
