Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said she has every confidence that under Tang's capable leadership, the West Kowloon Cultural District will be playing a key part in Hong Kong's development as a hub for arts and cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world, a goal set out in the National 14th Five-Year Plan.

"The West Kowloon Cultural District has seen remarkable progress in the past two years and is establishing itself as a new cultural landmark of Hong Kong. In addition to the Xiqu Centre, Freespace and the Art Park, the two world-class museums in WKCD, the M+ Museum and Hong Kong Palace Museum, are set to open in the near future,” she added.
