Leung, who is also vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and former chief executive of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), made the remarks in a CMG interview on Monday.

On May 5, Leung and Tung Chee-hwa, also a former chief executive of HKSAR, launched a coalition aimed at helping Hong Kong overcome difficulties and "set sail again."

The coalition, co-sponsored by over 1,500 representatives from all walks of life, was established in a bid to assist the HKSAR government to revive the city's coronavirus-battered economy and help young people build a better future. 

About 10 percent of its members are young people.
