Chapter ten Governance and Corruption Prevention in Hong Kong
Good urban governance is often taken to include the core values of the democratic right of political participation at the local level; the decentralized and efficient delivery of appropriate services; and the expectation that those who are responsible for providing such services should not act corruptly.
