It shows that the central government is determined to restore stability in Hong Kong after continued unrest and chaos since last June, and to protect the vast majority of law-abiding Hong Kong residents from being endangered by a minority of people who attempt to undermine national security. It also shows its determination to preserve and better "one country, two systems", a principle underlying Hong Kong's stability and prosperity since the HKSAR was established 23 years ago. 。 Lam pointed out that the central government's high trust in Hong Kong is reflected as the law stipulates that the HKSAR bears the primary responsibility of implementing this national law in Hong Kong. The HKSAR will do its utmost to fulfill the responsibility of implementing the law in Hong Kong and will establish the Committee for Safeguarding National Security as required by the law. Apart from law enforcement, the HKSAR government will also strengthen education on the law so as to raise public awareness of safeguarding national security.
