Updated: 2004-07-18 17:27

Hong Kong's Basic Law Promotion Steering Committee (BLPSC) and relevant government departments have been organizing a series of promotional activities to commemorate the seventh anniversary of the implementation of the Basic Law.

According to a government press release on Sunday, one of the key commemorative activities was the TV Quiz on Basic Law recently held by the BLPSC and co-organized by eight government departments.

Moreover, the Home Affairs Bureau is organizing with the Committee on the Promotion of Civic Education and the Peninsula Junior Chamber a Basic Law public speaking contest and a series of related promotional activities from July to November to enhance people's awareness of the Basic Law, in particular among the youngsters.

The five winning teams of the Basic Law Promotion Day Competition will visit Beijing in August as one of their prizes. Their respective schools will implement the proposals stated in their winning entries through staging a "Basic Law Promotion Day" on campus in October, in a bid to enhance students' understanding of the Basic Law.

On the school front, the Education and Manpower Bureau has been organizing the "Award Scheme for HK Student Leaders: National Education Course" for secondary six student prefects to take up courses in Beijing. The first course has been launched earlier this month with the participation of 170 students and 17 principals.

To achieve similar objectives, the EMB was also organizing a "Journey to China Study Tour Project" through which grants were made to eight secondary schools and 10 primary schools for arranging visits and study programs in various study points in the Chinese mainland.
