June 25. (EUROPA PRESS) –

Chinese President Xi Jinping announced this Saturday that he will visit Hong Kong to attend the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the “return” of the former British colony to China, which took place on July 1, 1997.

On the trip to Hong Kong, he will also attend the inaugural ceremony of the sixth term of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, according to the Chinese news agency Xinhua.

Xi will therefore lead the swearing-in of incoming leader John Lee Ka-chiu, who was elected in May as the new ruler to succeed Carrie Lam, in the Hong Kong government since 2017.


The agency has not given more details about the trip and, at the moment, its duration is unknown, as well as the planning of attendance at other events.

This is the second time Xi Jinping has presided over the anniversary festivities and swearing-in ceremony for a new leader since he became China’s president in 2013, the Hong Kong newspaper ‘South China Morning Post’ has reported.
