Boost for Basic Law

A GROUP was formed yesterday to promote the Basic Law in the territory, marking the third anniversary of the promulgation of the mini-constitution.

The vice-convenor of the Joint Conference for Popularisation of the Hongkong Basic Law, Mr Ho King-on, said yesterday the group, including 16 former Basic Law drafters and Basic Law Consultative Committee members, was formed to pool resources to promote the Basic Law.

He said they had to raise funds of several million dollars as they planned to launch a large-scale promotion.

Their first activity would be to hold an exhibition and a seminar by early next year.
