The government of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) has officially handed over the Central Military Dock to the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Hong Kong Garrison, HKSAR Chief Executive Carrie Lam said on Tuesday, adding that it carried an important constitutional significance since it fully underlines the relationship between the central government and the HKSAR under the principle of "One Country, Two Systems."

The 150-meter-long Military Dock on the northern shore of the HKSAR is the last military facility required to be re-provisioned for use by the Hong Kong Garrison. No one can enter military sites without authorization.

Hong Kong Garrison has been performing its defense duties in the HKSAR strictly in accordance with the Basic Law, the Garrison Law and relevant legislation over the past 23 years since the HKSAR returned to China. It has provided a solid back-up for upholding HKSAR's long-term prosperity and stability and is well respected by HKSAR citizens, said Lam.

On behalf of the HKSAR government and fellow citizens, Lam paid tribute and extended her heartfelt thanks to the Hong Kong Garrison that keeps guard over the HKSAR and cares for the residents.
