The government of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) announced on Saturday that the National Anthem Law will be enacted in the HKSAR through local legislation.

"In pursuance to Article 18 of the Basic Law, the National Anthem Law will be applied in the HKSAR by way of appropriate local legislation consistent with the HKSAR's constitutional and legal regime," the HKSAR government's Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau said in a statement.
