Xi Jinping to grace meeting marking 25th year of HK’s return to motherland
CE Lam says Xi’s attendance shows central authorities’ support for Hong Kong.
President Xi Jinping will grace a meeting celebrating the 25th year of Hong Kong’s return to the motherland.
Apart from the celebratory meeting, Xi will also present at the inaugural ceremony of the sixth-term Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam said Xi’s attendance at the meeting shows central authorities’ support for Hong Kong.
Lam added that Xi’s support has led to the successful implementation of the “one country, two systems ' principle over the past five years.
This was echoed by Chief Executive-elect John Lee, adding that the successful implementation of “one country, two systems” has proved to be the “best institutional safeguard ever for the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong since its return to the motherland.”
