Dear Mr. Tsang: 
 
Congratulations on your selection and appointment as Chief 
Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. 
I look forward to working with you as we address the 
issues and challenges that face us in today's world. 
The United States and Hong Kong enjoy a strong partnership 
in many areas, and we appreciate Hong Kong's role as one 
 
of the world's most open economies. We look forward to 
Hong Kong's hosting of the World Trade Organization's 
Sixth Ministerial Conference in December. We also greatly 
appreciate Hong Kong's strong support in the war on 
terror. 
 
I am confident that as Chief Executive you will continue 
to work hard to promote democratic reform, development, 
and continued economic prosperity in Hong Kong. 
 
With best wishes as you take up your new responsibilities, 
 
Sincerely, 
Condoleezza Rice 
 
End Text.
