Mrs Carrie Lam
I am pleased to congratulate the winners of the Hong Kong News Awards 2019.
Hong Kong is a major regional publishing hub, attracting a world of international media, alongside local Chinese- and English-language newspapers, magazines and a variety of other publications. Our dynamic local media have long been critical to Hong Kong's outsized success as a financial and logistics capital and trading centre. The media industry's continuing dedication to high-quality reporting and analysis is essential if Hong Kong is to remain a great global city.
To that end, I commend The Newspaper Society of Hong Kong for annually organising the Hong Kong News Awards, which showcases excellence in Chinese- and English-language reporting and writing, as well as photography and design. In all, 75 awards are being presented this year. They cover everything from "Best News Reporting" and "Best Young Reporter" to "Best News Writing", "Best Photograph (Features)" and "Best News Page Design (Series)". The award winners' commitment to their profession is laudable. They also serve, each in their own distinctive way, as role models for our youth, while tenaciously illuminating our economy, society, government and institutions, large and small.
I wish you all the best of business, and plenty of reporting scoops and exclusives, in the coming year.
