Why Xi’s meet-and-greet with Hong Kong elite set tongues wagging on pecking order

New faces among row of tycoons meeting president during a photo session with business and political leaders during his trip caught attention of many.
Chinese President Xi Jinping’s interactions with the who’s who of Hong Kong during his visit to the city were more limited than five years ago but nonetheless set tongues wagging about perceived changes to the pecking order among the local elite.

The new faces among the row of tycoons meeting him during a photo session with business and political leaders during his two-day trip caught the attention of many.

Standing near Xi in the second row during the session were some “predictable” faces from the second generation of the city’s wealthiest families, including Henderson Land co-chairman Peter Lee Ka-kit, while Victor Li Tzar-kuoi, son of the city’s richest man Li Ka-shing, stood next to him.
