The General Office of the State Council recently issued the Measures for the Application and Issuance of Residence Permits for Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Residents, Media and scholars from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan consider that the residence permit policy will facilitate the life and work of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan residents in the Mainland, provide more room and opportunities for development, enhance the flow of talents, and promote the construction of the Dayan Bay Area in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao.
Hong Kong business students will benefit and live more conveniently
The Hong Kong Economic Journal published an op-ed article saying that Hong Kong people who went northward to develop were already a sizable proportion of the population in Hong Kong. In recent years, the two places have become more and more closely linked and co-operative. In the future, more and more Hong Kong people will go to the Mainland to develop and live in the Mainland. The New Policy on Residence Permits is the best expression of the "equal treatment" between Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan residents and has made a great breakthrough in the measures to facilitate the northward development of Hong Kong people.
The Hong Kong-based Sing Tao Daily interviewed two Hong Kong businessmen who were doing business in the Mainland and both of them gave positive comments on the introduction of the Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan resident permits. Mr. Lam, who works in trading business in Dongguan, said that residence permits bring great convenience for Hong Kong people to go north to work and live. They can not only take public transport more convenient, but also save the trouble of opening accounts with mainland banks in the past.
Chen Guozhang, who has been in the tea business in the Mainland for more than 20 years, said the new residence permit would give him the chance to enjoy the benefits of mainlanders, such as the provision of basic public health services.
The Hong Kong-based Ming Pao newspaper reported that Hong Kong students who attended mainland universities thought the new measures would make life easier, If the Residence Permit can ensure that Hong Kong students will receive the same medical protection and provident fund in the Mainland in the future, it will encourage Hong Kong students to stay in the Mainland to work; Some secondary school students who live in Shenzhen and cross the border to Hong Kong every day say that a residence permit can avoid the life troubles caused by not having a residence permit in the Mainland.
The Macau Daily quoted Li Zhaozu, Chairman of the Macao Association of Students, as saying, The introduction of the Hong Kong and Macao Resident Permit will make life easier for Macao students who are studying or living in the Mainland. It is hoped that Macao freshmen who enter Hong Kong in September can also apply so that these students can use the Residence Permit function as early as possible.
Attract more compatriots from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan to the Mainland
As the style is basically the same, the Xinhua Australia Daily said in a review article, Residents of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan with residence permits can adapt themselves to the banking, telecommunications, railway, civil aviation, hotel and other fields of the Mainland, and generally equipped facilities suitable for Mainland residents' ID cards for quick and easy use. More importantly, residents of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan can enjoy a wide range of basic public service benefits, which will attract more compatriots from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan to start businesses and work in the Mainland.
Zhao Chunshan, an emeritus professor at Taiwan's Tamkang University, was quoted by Taiwan's Central News Agency as saying that for Taiwanese people living on the mainland, The application for a residence permit will bring a lot of convenience to life and may further the idea of long-term residence in China for Taiwanese who are already studying and working in China.
Wang Kunyi, chairman and professor at the Taiwan Institute of International Strategic Studies, said that with the rapid economic development of the mainland, more and more Taiwanese people are going to work and live in China, Taiwan Zhongshi Electronic Daily reported. The introduction of the Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan residents' residence permits has enabled the Taiwanese to become more integrated into the local community. This is a further step towards the goal of "good governance" in the Mainland.
According to Sing Tao Daily, the Hong Kong-Macao-Taiwan Resident Permit System enables Hong Kong, Macao-Taiwan residents living, working or studying in the Mainland to enjoy the same treatment and convenience as mainland citizens in various aspects, It will help to promote people's integration across the Straits and strengthen national identity through social life and become more effective.
Boost the Construction of Dayan District and Strengthen the Flow of Talents
The Hong Kong-based Sing Tao Daily reported that the Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs of Hong Kong, Mr Nieh Tak-kuen, said, In the future, Hong Kong people will be able to enjoy social security, housing provident fund and other benefits in the Mainland by opening bank accounts and electronic payments in the Mainland with their residence permits.The convenience will be comparable to that of the Mainlanders. The Tai Wan District Development Plan announced later will further enhance the relationship between the Mainland and Hong Kong, make it easier for Hong Kong people to live and work in the Tai Wan District and provide more opportunities for the youth of Hong Kong to develop.
The Macau Daily quoted Ma Youli, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and Chairman of the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce in Macau as saying, The Measures for the Application and Issuance of Residence Permits for Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Residents reflect the concern of the Central People's Government for our compatriots in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. This is very beneficial to the development of the integration of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan with the Mainland. The introduction of the relevant convenience will greatly enhance the flow of talents in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao-Dayan area and lay the foundation for the future construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau-Dayan area.
Mr Ma said that the Tai Wan District of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau had been initially rationalized in terms of staff mobility. With proper optimization in the future, the relevant policies would be most effective, making the Tai Wan District a place with a high degree of talent convergence and economic growth.
He Shaojin, president of the Macao Chinese Education Association, said that the Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Residence Permit policy provides eligible Macao residents with the same public services and facilities as mainland residents, and that the policy has made them feel deeply part of the country that they are part of the country. With the support of the State, the youth of Macao will be given more development and opportunities and will have a bright future.
