New senior officials appointed in HK

  2003-08-05 07:17 China Daily

  Hong Kong's Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa announced yesterday the appointments of Henry Tang Ying-yen as new financial secretary and Ambrose Lee Siu-kwong as secretary for security. He praised both for their leadership skills and rich experience.

  ★appointment,The act of appointing or designating for an office or position.任命。the appointment of a chairman ,主席职位;fill a vacancy by appointment,任命人员填补空缺。

  As Lee assumes his new post, he relinquishes his position as commissioner of the Independent Commission against Corruption —— a job he took on a little more than a year ago. Only tipped as a favorite candidate last week, Tang said Hong Kong is facing unprecedented challenges of economic transition, unemployment, budget deficit and deflation. "Although we are facing stern economic hardships, we should not forget our unique strengths and good economic fundamentals,'' he said, adding that the Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) between Hong Kong and the mainland is one of the territory's major strengths.

  ★relinquish,To retire from; give up or abandon.离开;放弃或抛弃。relinquish a claim,放弃要求;relinquish bad habits,戒除不良习惯。与relinquish有几个近义词,they have in common the sense of letting something go or giving something up.他们都包含有放弃的意思。现在简单介绍一下这几个词。
  #Relinquish, 不能忍受放弃这个主意。意味着让步,如向压力或上级权威,经常是希望这样的行动将是暂时性的:
  #Abandon和 surrender在意味不存在已失去的东西的回归或恢复的希望是一致的,但是这两个词的区别是 surrender意味着强迫、命令或力量之下的行动:

  ★unprecedented,Having no previous example:没有前例的。unprecedented economic rowth.史无前例的经济增长。
  ★deflation,A persistent decrease in the level of consumer prices or a persistent increase in the purchasing power of money because of a reduction in available currency and credit.通货紧缩。
  ★stern,Hard, harsh, or severe in manner or character,在方式或性格上严峻的:a stern disciplinarian.一个严格的实施纪律者。

  Wong would not comment openly on the case when asked how he would deal with the incident relating to ex-financial secretary Antony Leung's car purchase. "We will deal with the matter fairly, impartially and in compliance with the law,“ he said. "But whether there will be a prosecution is for the secretary for justice to decide."

  ★impartial,Not partial or biased; unprejudiced.不偏不倚的;没有偏见的。
  ★in compliance with,遵照, 依从, 屈从。
  ★prosecute,To initiate civil or criminal court action against. 对…提起公诉,对…提起民法或刑法诉讼行为。He was prosecuted for robbery.他因抢劫而被起诉。

  Henry Tang vowed to make use of the market force of the Pearl River Delta area to develop high value-added, innovative and high-tech industries and to enhance Hong Kong's role in the delta.
