|The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce celebrates its birthday|
|Free rides on trams and Star Ferries today|
Chamber chairman YK Pang gave a statement at a press conference this morning:
"For the past 154 years, the Chamber has gone through various ups and downs with members and the community, and we have all worked hard to build a prosperous future for Hong Kong," he said. "Our birthday wish this year is for all business sectors to thrive and for everyone to have a happy and prosperous year."
Then he added a subtle political hint.
"We also hope that society can come together to make sure constitutional development moves ahead."
Should the chamber be making such comments?Or should we just ignore it and appreciate the free (non air conditioned) ride, even though it was bloody hot today at 33 degrees?
