The central government will work to ensure a stable supply of grain, meat, fruits, vegetables, power and gas to Hong Kong in order to reduce price and market volatility, Vice-premier Li Keqiang said in a forum in Hong Kong on Wednesday.
This is part of a package of new measures to boost the city's economy and social development.
Li promised the central government will "exert its utmost to do everything that contributes to prosperity and stability of Hong Kong."
The central government will also expand cross-border trade, and broaden market access for both traditional and emerging service industries in Hong Kong including legal services, and testing and certification.
Enterprises in both the mainland and Hong Kong will also be granted more policy support to "go global" together.
