We believe everyone should be given a fair chance to succeed and work towards the fulfillment of his or her potential. We believe in the creation of sustainable communities and in the improvement of the quality of life as a common goal. We believe economic development should be pursued in that context and not for its own sake. We believe social harmony and stability can only come about with social justice and equity. We believe in protecting public resources which belong to the entire community for the enjoyment of present and future generations. We believe a civilized society is one which is pluralistic, compassionate, which respects the dignity and worth of each individual and values diversity.
Such a society can only be built upon the rule of law, the protection of individual rights and freedoms, and an elected government which truly enjoys the wide support of the people. That Government must take civil society into partnership, reflect the will of the community, and affirm the commitment to constitutionalism. We believe that all those who take Hong Kong as their home should recognize their civic duty, and do their part in bringing about a fair and just society.
We believe the Government of the HKSAR must use the powers entrusted to it to remove the entrenched privileges and out-dated bureaucratic barriers which are causing stagnation and stifling free enterprise. Only then can the gap between the rich and the poor be addressed and the vulnerable be given the care they require, the diligent allowed to reap their reward and the young look to the future with hope and confidence.
