The core members of BPA met with the sixth-term Chief Executive-elect, Mr John Lee, to exchange views on the work of the new-term government on May 16. BPA members put forward a series of suggestions and expectations, covering topics such as integration into the national development, economic and livelihood initiatives, and the development of youth etc. After the meeting, Chairman of BPA Dr Lo Wai Kwok said in a speech to the media that BPA hoped John Lee would lead the new-term government to be people-oriented, focusing on development and pursuing good governance.
