“With the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region coming up, people naturally will review and think about today, the future, and what the next 50 years will be like,” said Shen Chunyao, chairman of the Basic Law Committee and Legislative Affairs Commission of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee.

“In reality, 50 years is just a figurative saying. There will not be changes after 50 years… the first 50 years cannot change. There is no need to change after 50 years,” he said.
