CHINA'S Basic Law promises have been dramatised in a 20-minute video love story as part of a soft-sell campaign by a pressure group. The romance, starring Canto-pop singers, sought to answer anxieties and queries over such livelihood matters as marriage, nationality, immigration, family planning and freedom of speech after the sovereignty changeover. The video, of which 2,000 copies have been produced, cost $400,000. It will be made available to the public free by the Joint Committee for the Promotion of the Basic Law. Speaking at a ceremony to launch the video, Weng Xinqiao of the Xinhua (New China News Agency) Department of Education, Science and Technology admitted a vast portion of the population were still ignorant and misunderstood the future constitution. 'In these remaining two years, all sorts of activities aiming to promote the Basic Law are good,' he said.
