Our continuing series in which teachers and pupils discuss handover issues Name: Jason Ng Lung-kwong Age: 18 years Form/school: Form Six. Shun Tak Fraternal Association Lee Shau Kee College. Hobbies: Playing guitar, reading books about science. Personal long-term plans: I want to enter university in Hong Kong to study medicine as I hope to be a doctor. Background: My family has five members - my dad, mum, brother, sister and me. Only my father was born in China and he moved to Hong Kong from Guangdong in the mid-1970s. Parents/family: My father works at a manufacturing plant in China. My mother is a housewife. My brother is a second-year university student while my sister is a hotel receptionist. Since my father works in China, he only comes home a few times each month. What does the handover mean to you? Hong Kong is like an orphan who can now have a home. Hong Kong has been governed by the British for many years, so Hong Kong people do not have a clear nationality. You are Chinese but you are not governed by the Chinese. It is a shame. So it is nice that we can now say we are Chinese. What does the handover mean to your parents? They don't pay much attention to it. My mother is a bit worried about the increasing number of mainland immigrants. She says the immigrants will worsen housing, medical and education problems. My brother and sister don't fear the handover. Like most Hong Kong people, they don't pay much attention to these issues. They are just concerned about making money. But they are interested in seeing what happens in the future. How do you view Hong Kong 10 years from now? The population will increase with the flood of mainland immigrants. I'm not sure whether the Hong Kong government will be able to deal with the population problem. If they can't, problems in housing, education, job recruitment and other public affairs will become more serious. I'm also concerned about the problem of corruption. We hear so many stories about corruption in China. The mainland's reputation is not good. Since more Chinese officials will work in Hong Kong, they will bring in this bad habit and affect the running of the Hong Kong government. Meanwhile, schools in Hong Kong are going to implement mother-tongue teaching. I'm sure this will widen the gap between the different bands in schools. This is not fair.
