朱彤：Thank you， Premier Zhu.I must tell that you are also my idol.I am from Phoenix Hong Kong.You know，the effect on Hong Kong of the financial crisis in Southeast Asia has begun to show，especially in the first half of this year，the unemployment rate in Hong Kong is the highest over the past one and a half years.So my first question，is what specific measures would the central government adopt if the Hong Kong economy were to face difficulties.And the second question，you know the foreign media have，um，very high，uh，spoken very highly of you，and they called you a *poker-faced Prime MInister or economic *czar.And we also know that in the course of the reform of the macro-regulation and the control and the reform of the government institutions，uh，there have been some inconveniences or some troubles caused to your families.Can you tell us，uh，have you ever felt depressed or frustrated and have you ever thought of giving up all ，all this？
朱彤： Since the financial crisis in Asia last year and especially since the stock market crash in Hong Kong on the 24th of October last year，thanks to the sound economic struture and a fairly strong economic power and a very large foreign exchange reserve of 98 billion US dollars in Hong kong，and also thanks to the effective and…measures and leadership exercised by the Hong Kong *SAR government，Hong Kong has overcome one difficulty after another.
朱彤： The Chinese government speaks very highly of the policies adopted by the Hong Kong SAR government and we don't think that Hong Kong would encounter *insurmountable difficulties in the future.
朱彤： But if the Hong Kong SAR government were to need the support from the central government in an exceptional case or under exceptinal circumstances，then as long as the Hong Kong SAR government filed a request with the central government of China，then the central government of China would spare no efforts and would spare no cost to maintain the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and to maintain the link system between the Hong Kong dollar and the US dollar.
朱彤：So，as for my thinking， I think at present that's very simple.At this session of the National People's Congress，the deputies have entrust me with a very heavy and important task，and I myself can feel very keenly the *arduousness of this task.And actually I'm really fearful or I‘m afraid that uh，and I，that I would let the people down.
朱彤：But no matter what is waiting for me in front of me ， being land mines or an *abyss，I will *blaze my trail and I have no hesitation and no misgivings and I will do all my best and contribute，devote all myself to the people and the country until the last day of my life.
