The director of Beijing’s liaison office in Hong Kong, Luo Huining, and former chief executive Leung Chun-ying are also seen at the platform greeting the president. After removing his mask, Xi starts by saying “The whole Chinese nation is celebrating this happy occasion with Hong Kong residents. During these five springs and autumns, I have been paying attention to Hong Kong and thinking of Hong Kong.”“My heart and that of the central government have been with our compatriots in Hong Kong,” he said. "In the past period, Hong Kong has experienced more than one serious test, and overcome more than one risk and challenge," Xi said.
