Leung calls for forbearance towards mainland tourists

2015-03-17 13:14 Xinhua Web Editor: Gu Liping

Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying Tuesday called for patience with the growing number of tourists coming from the Chinese mainland.

Speaking ahead of an Executive Council meeting Tuesday morning, Leung said the rising number of tourists has added pressure to certain districts.

However, Leung stressed that Hong Kong is a peaceful society where the law is upheld and no one would like to see the commotions happened in the past few weeks in the New Territories.

This will not do any good to the society's image and economy, he added.

Leung hoped that local people could be patient with the issue, which the special administrative region has reflected it to the central government.
