necessary to set up a Hong Kong Port Area at the Shenzhen Bay Port especially for customs clearance and
inspection of people, vehicles and goods in order to alleviate the mounting pressure on land control points
arising from increasing interactions between the Mainland and the Hong Kong Special Administrative
Region (“HKSAR”), to accommodate the objective demand for transport and for facilitation of customs
clearance between Shenzhen and HKSAR, to promote the interflow of people and economic and trade
activities between the Mainland and HKSAR and to advance joint economic development of the 2 places;

(2) on the basis of the consideration mentioned in paragraph (1), the Standing Committee of the Tenth National
People’s Congress at its 24th Meeting decided on 31 October 2006 as follows—
(a) HKSAR is authorized to exercise jurisdiction over the Hong Kong Port Area at the Shenzhen Bay Port

according to the laws of HKSAR from the day on which the Shenzhen Bay Port commences operation,

(b) the area of the Hong Kong Port Area at the Shenzhen Bay Port will be stipulated by the State Council;

Shenzhen Bay Port over which the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is Authorized to Exercise
Jurisdiction and the Land Use Period” dated 30 December 2006 (Letter No. 132 [2006] of the State
Council), the State Council—
(a) stipulated the area of the Hong Kong Port Area at the Shenzhen Bay Port (“the Stipulated Area”);

and
(b) determined that the land use right of the Stipulated Area be acquired by HKSAR by way of a lease

under a lease contract for State-owned land signed between HKSAR Government and the People’s
Government of the Shenzhen Municipality of Guangdong Province, that the land use period shall
commence on the day on which the Shenzhen Bay Port commences operation and shall expire on 30
June 2047, and that with the State Council’s approval of a submission made after the parties’
mutual consultation and submitted in accordance with the relevant procedures, the land use right may
