In this age of information, news has become an indispensable part of our daily life. It shrinks social distance, enriches our minds, and helps us keep pace with social changes. In discharging their duties of disseminating news, journalists bear a heavy responsibility and make an enormous social contribution.
Every year, The Newspaper Society of Hong Kong organises the Hong Kong News Awards competition with a view to recognising excellence and raising industry standards. I would like to thank the participating newspapers and congratulate all the winners. I am confident that in performing their duites in the future, they will continue to strive for excellence, adhere to best practice and stick to the truth.
