Updated at 6.19pm: The Basic Law Promotion Steering Committee (BLPSC) and other government departments have been organising activities to celebrate the seventh anniversary of the implementation of the Basic Law. The government said that one of the activities was the TV Quiz Basic Law recently held by the BLPSC and co-organised by eight government departments. 'The Home Affairs Bureau is organising with the Committee on the Promotion of Civic Education and the Peninsula Junior Chamber, a Basic Law Public Speaking Contest and a series of related promotional activities from July to November to enhance people's awareness of the Basic Law, in particular among the youngsters,' a government spokesman said late on Sunday. The five winning teams of the Basic Law Promotion Day Competition, organised by the Constitutional Affairs Bureau and Education and Manpower Bureau (EMB), will visit Beijing in August as one of their prizes. 'Their respective schools will implement the proposals stated in their winning entries through staging a 'Basic Law Promotion Day' on campus in October, in a bid to enhance students' understanding of the Basic Law,' the spokesman added. The EMB has also been organising the 'Award Scheme for HK Student Leaders: National Education Course' for secondary six student prefects to take up courses in Beijing. The Basic Law is Hong Kong's mini-constitution. It came into effect following the 1997 July 1 handover of the territory to China. Integral to the Basic Law is the 'One Country, Two Systems' policy whereby China recognises that Hong Kong is part of the mainland, but has separate laws and freedoms.
