Madam President,


         I move that the Appropriation Bill 2007 be read a second time.

2.        "Revitalising the economy, promoting employment and improving people's livelihood" have been my consistent policy objectives over the years since I became Financial Secretary.  They are also my guiding principles in formulating the 2007?8 Budget.  I believe that our economic development over the past few years confirms that they are on the right track.

3.        My gratitude goes to various sectors of the community for the invaluable suggestions they have given me over the past few months.  In pursuance of the Chief Executive's "proactive, pragmatic, always people first" concept of governance, I hope, by means of this Budget, to leave wealth with the community where affordable, balance the changing aspirations of our society, and, while leaving room for the next Government, contribute in a visionary way to the long-term economic development, social harmony and stability of Hong Kong.
