China’s Xi Says Hong Kong Is ‘Reborn’

From Bloomberg Markets and Finance.

President Xi Jinping said Hong Kong had been "reborn" since he last visited five years ago, as he returned to the former British colony to mark its 25th anniversary of Chinese rule. "Facts show that the ‘One Country, Two Systems’ policy has strong vitality," the Chinese leader said in a short speech Thursday afternoon at West Kowloon railway station. "It can ensure long term prosperity and stability in Hong Kong, and safeguard the wellbeing of Hong Kong’s compatriots." (Mandarin with English subtitles)
