In the past two months, Hong Kong has warmed up for celebrating the 10th anniversary of its return to the Chinese motherland with all kinds of anniversary-related activities.
On May 25, a large-scale Buddha symphony performance was held in Hong Kong to bless Hong Kong and the whole country.

It also won through the Asian financial crisis, global economic depression and SARS, among other difficulties, and consolidated its position as a financial, trade and shipping center in the world.

"It\'s a special year for Hong Kong as we are now in the 10th year of return to the motherland," said Donald Tsang Yam-kuen, chief executive of the HKSAR, at the beginning of the year. "The HKSAR government will launch a number of large-scale celebration programs in Hong Kong, mainland, and even overseas to show the achievements we made under the \'one country, two systems\' principle."

According to the local government, the celebration activities include ceremonial and celebration events, commissioning of infrastructure projects, major exhibitions and conferences, as well as various cultural, sports, community and district events.

"The activities have covered all fields and will be held across the 18 districts of Hong Kong," said Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-Ngor, permanent secretary for home affairs of the HKSAR government. " These activities will exhibit fully a dynamic, pluralistic, and harmonious Hong Kong."

Currently, the preparation for community activities are in full swing. Tsuen Wan will launch a fireworks display and a parade, In Tai Po, a carnival and several nights\' theatrical performances will be held. Sai Kung will focus on the dragon boat competition which will be participated by competitors from the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao regions and Taiwan province.

In addition to government-sponsored activities, non-government organizations are also contributing a share to the celebrations.
