HONG KONG, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- The Hong Kong Commerce and Industry Associations announced on Wednesday that Hong Kong will hold a 23-minute fireworks display at the Victoria Harbor on Oct. 1 to celebrate the 68th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to the motherland.

The National Day fireworks display will be organized by the Hong Kong Commerce and Industry Associations and produced by the Pyro Magic Multi-media Productions Ltd.

Chairman of the Hong Kong Commerce and Industry Associations Lo Kam-yam, who also chairs the fireworks display organizing committee, said that the National Day fireworks display has eight scenes with each scene having its unique theme and fireworks synchronized to different background music.

The eight themes include "Set Sail," "Sail on," "Victorious Hands," "Journey" and "Love in Hong Kong," among others.

Wilson Mao, CEO of the Pyro Magic Multi-media Productions Ltd, said that the sixth scene - "Love in Hong Kong" - will display for the first time in Hong Kong a "3D heart" fireworks effect symbolizing a heart-to-heart bonding and building together a love-filled Hong Kong.

The CEO said that as the National Day and the Mid-Autumn Festival are close to each other this year, the fourth scene of the fireworks display, entitled "Journey," will depict homecoming reunion celebration for the Mid-Autumn Festival.

With "golden magic ball" in the air resembling the moon in the sky and balls of various colors representing costumes of China's 56 ethnic groups, this scene symbolizes Hong Kong's celebration of the National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival with the motherland.

The Hong Kong Commerce and Industry Associations was incorporated in 1993.

Members of its member organizations are leaders of major economic, trade and industrial enterprises in Hong Kong.
