China's new man in Hong Kong hopes city will return to 'right path'

The new head of China's liaison office in Hong Kong, the most senior mainland official in the Asian financial hub, made his first comments to the media on Monday.

Francesca Lynagh reports.

The new head of China's liaison office in Hong Kong - the most senior mainland official in the territory - said on Monday (January 6) that Beijing is the strongest backer of the Asian financial hub.

Luo Huining was making his first comments to the media after it was announced on Saturday (January 4) that he would replace Wang Zhimin as head of the platform by which Beijing projects its influence in the city.

(SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) NEW HONG KONG LIAISON OFFICE CHIEF, LUO HUINING, SAYING: "Over the past half year, the Hong Kong situation has been worrying.

Everyone eagerly hopes Hong Kong can return to the right path.

Just like President Xi Jinping said in his New Year address if there is no harmony and stable environment, there is no home with peace and contentment.

We sincerely hope Hong Kong is doing well, as well as our fellow compatriots in Hong Kong.

For Hong Kong, one country two systems is its greatest advantage." Reuters reported in November that Beijing was considering replacements for Wang in a sign of dissatisfaction at the liaison office's handling of the situation in Hong Kong - which has faced more than six months of pro-democracy protests.

Trump vs Biden, who's better for India? The China, economy, climate factors

The second and final debate between US Presidential election candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden saw better articulation of their views and policy visions, but one area which didn't see much discussion was foreign policy. India was mentioned just once by Trump, when he called the country's air 'filthy' while commenting on climate change commitments. So which would be better for India - a continuation of the Trump administration in the White House, or the victory of challenger Biden? One big factor in the equation would be the next US government's attitude towards China. While Trump has been increasingly confrontational with Beijing, experts feel that Biden may adopt a less aggressive strategy. Former Indian ambassador to the US, Meera Shankar and Foreign Editor, Hindustan Times Pramit Palchaudhuri discuss the question with Hindustan Times' Aditi Prasad.
