The South China Morning Post is one of those great papers that is synonymous with place, and in this, it is similar to the Hong Kong Jockey Club. Like the Club, the SCMP has grown up with Hong Kong. We have both been through the good times and the bad. And in our own ways we have both contributed to the development of the community and the culture. The SCMP has been around for a century, and we have been here nearly 120 years. Think HKJC, think SCMP, and you think Hong Kong! When I am overseas and I see the newspaper on the newsstands or in an airport lounge, it takes me right home. I immediately want to pick it up and reconnect with what is going on. The SCMP has always done Hong Kong racing proud with its great analysis and behind-the-scenes coverage. And for our big days like the Hong Kong International Races, it really shows Hong Kong racing at its best. I have always been impressed by the quality of the analysis, the openness to both sides of an issue, and the willingness to champion community issues. It is important to uphold those standards. It certainly reminds the world that there is no shortage of quality debate in our city. The Club champions community and charity issues in Hong Kong, and I am always delighted to see others take on those issues. I think the SCMP set a fine example with its fund-raising during Sars. It not only showed a conscience, but a heart as well. I hope more organisations follow its example. I have always enjoyed the Business and Technology sections. The business pages keep me up-to-date on all the local and regional news I need. And the Technology section is on a par with the best in world reporting.
