The demonstrations and violent shocks in Hong Kong have been taking place for nearly two months. Hong Kong's rule of law, social order, economy and people's livelihood and international image have been greatly impacted. Over the past month, sales of most members of the Hong Kong Retail Management Association have declined markedly. Consumer confidence index has dropped to the bottom of five years. Travel groups from Southeast Asia to Hong Kong have declined sharply, and are expected to drop by more than 70%. Hong Kong's business environment is under pressure. If it is allowed to delay, it will certainly destroy the foundation of Hong Kong's development. The results will be destroyed.
Stability and prosperity are the blessings of the people of Hong Kong. Over the past 22 years, Hong Kong's own characteristics and advantages have been maintained. The combination of China and the West is still romantic. The charm of the vibrant capital is even stronger than before. One important reason is the stability of the socio-economic and political situation. For this reason, many Hong Kong citizens are worried about the violence and disorder in Hong Kong. People from all walks of life have shouted slogans of "I love Hong Kong, refuse violence" and "Protect the rule of law and security". It is well known that maintaining social harmony and stability is not only in line with the common interests of all sectors of Hong Kong society, all walks of life and foreign investors, but also an important condition for maintaining Hong Kong's status as an international financial, trade and shipping center. If Hong Kong is stable and prosperous, it will enhance its competitiveness; if Hong Kong is in turmoil, the whole society will have to pay for it. The reason is simple: society is chaotic, people are scattered, where can we talk about economic development, not to mention people's happy life.
"Harmony leads to auspiciousness and obedience leads to difference". Hong Kong is a pluralistic society. It is not surprising that there are different opinions or even major differences on some specific issues. But if we fall into the "pan-politicization" spiral and create antagonism and confrontation artificially, it will not only be useless, but also seriously hinder economic and social development. Although Hong Kong has a good family background, it is also facing great challenges in the context of the deep adjustment of the global economic structure and the increasingly fierce international competition. It can not withstand ups and downs, nor can it withstand internal friction. If the violence continues, it is bound to damage Hong Kong's reputation as an international commercial metropolis and the vital interests and fundamental well-being of Hong Kong people. People's mind is stable, homeland is peaceful. Getting out of political disputes as soon as possible and resolutely saying no to acts of violence is an urgent matter and the aspiration of the people.
