As a response to the release of the China's 12th Five-Year Plan, 50 Hong Kong politicians have accepted the invitation to deliver speeches in Hong Kong's middle schools in order to interpret the state of the latest developments in modern day China face-to-face with students, said the organizer Chen Yongqi, the president of the Friends of Hong Kong Association.

Think tanks in the Chinese government, leading scholars, experts, businessman and even the "traditional leftists" will attempt to utilize their first-hand personal knowledge and experience of China's development in their speeches, which are scheduled to last from March to July.

As part of their effort to enhance national education and general common education, the politicians are ready to argue some controversial topics with students in order to cultivate their critical thinking and tolerance towards academic diversification, which in turn helps the senior politicians and social elites to learn in depth the mindsets of the future leaders of the country.

Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong (DAB) will support the national education promotion by organizing students to take the high-speed railway to Wuhan in mainland China. There they will get in touch with the living history of the democratic Xinhai Revolution in 1911 as part of their knowledge of China's current development, DAB President Tan Yaozong said.
