Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang says the Beijing Olympics is a golden opportunity to showcase the country's rapid development, adding Hong Kong will do its best to make the Olympic Equestrian events a great success.

Speaking at the reception in celebration of the 11th anniversary of the establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Tsang said Hong Kong is honoured to co-host the Olympic Equestrian events.

"The city will ensure the events' success to demonstrate that Hong Kong people are worthy of the trust bestowed upon us by our country."

Tsang added,

"This is also a year of challenges for our country. While the devastating earthquake in Wenchuan shook the whole Chinese nation, we have demonstrated the virtue of 'When one place suffers misfortune, aid comes from all sides', and the solidarity, indomitable will and great courage of Chinese people."

Noting Hong Kong people share the victims' sadness, Tsang said the Hong Kong Government will actively participate in the reconstruction to contribute to the country and the whole nation.

"I am confident that Chinese people will rise to all challenges and emerge from these difficulties even stronger."
