Hong Kong and Russia can strengthen ties and deepen understanding in many areas other than business.
This was the message from Chief Executive Donald Tsang today after watching a soccer practice match between the Russian National Youth Team and the Hong Kong Under-19 Youth Team at Po Kong Village Road Park.
Mr Tsang said the visit of the Russian team is a good example of other forms of exchange between Hong Kong and Russia. The team’s visit was organised after Mr Tsang met Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in April.
Mr Tsang said the visit is a valuable experience for both sides as well as a great opportunity to nurture friendships, adding the Government will continue to boost resources for local soccer development.
