I think housing is not a simple commodity because we are so in short supply of land. So the government has a role to play in providing housing - decent housing and affordable housing - for the people of Hong Kong.
It's neither appropriate nor responsible if I drastically amend a policy after one, two, or three submissions of opinion.
There is no question of the government or myself attaching less importance to the use of English.
I am the first female chief executive of Hong Kong.
If I paid more attention to my appearance, people might think that the proficiency of design industry isn't too bad in a city with such a chief executive.
If the chief executive cannot have a party background, how can she ensure her team is wholeheartedly united?
As a chief executive determined to lead Hong Kong to new heights, I am keenly aware of the immense responsibilities on my shoulders.
I have been a civil servant and a politician for over 30 years.
Our common goal is to keep Hong Kong from chaos, severe polarisation, and violence.
A well-educated, hard-working, flexible, and enterprising workforce has always been one of Hong Kong's greatest strengths.
Let's face reality. To ensure Hong Kong remains competitive, we have to uphold a very low tax regime.
During the formulation of policies, we encourage discussion and listen. We should canvass opinions from all sectors of society - especially relevant stakeholders, those who work on the front line, and the youth - with a view to seeking consensus in society.
I am very careful about my health... For example, I have body check-ups regularly and take some medicines to control my blood pressure, because I have a little bit high blood pressure.
It's clear that means testing can direct limited resources to the elderly in need and achieve better results in poverty alleviation.
While easy to understand, the income-based poverty line has limitations. Specifically, the median monthly household income measures only income without considering assets.
The path for the democratic development of Hong Kong since the return to the motherland has been full of twists and turns. We have had some successes and some failures.
An affection for Hong Kong and a national identity are not mutually exclusive. We can let children learn more about Hong Kong's history, culture, politics, and social development, and at the same time, we must make them have their national identity.
Most elderly are retirees with relatively low incomes. But some may possess assets, and they will be classified as poor. As such, the elderly poverty rate could be overstated.
Although universal suffrage may not be a panacea for all social problems, it does have a profound bearing on the democratic development and governance of a place.
I have no political issues that I need to seek central authorities' advice on.
