Though Hong Kong youngsters have more chances and can stay longer in the mainland, most of the time, they still do not know the country or only know it one-sidedly, Wilson Lung, who has dedicated years to youth communication between Hong Kong and the mainland, told People’s Daily online.

Influenced by his father, Lungbegan his enthusiasm for youth communication when he was 15 years old. Lung quoted his father’s words that we do not know whether a seed will harvest when we sow it, but what we can do is to keep sowing and hope more people join our cause.

Lung said Hong Kong young people have met great difficulty, as their wages have not changed much in more than a decade, while housing prices tripled or even quadrupled. The young people cannot see future prospects.

Lung said Hong Kong young people should see the opportunities, especially the ones for youngsters, in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA). The key is to step out of Hong Kong, which some already have.

Talking about the recent situation in Hong Kong, Lung said that many who really cherish Hong Kong are worried about the riots and the greatest issue in Hong Kong is lack of communication, as misunderstandings prevail.
