Hong Kong has sworn in John Lee as its next leader.

The ceremony was overseen by Chinese President Xi Jinping, who travelled to Hong Kong in his first trip outside mainland China since the pandemic began.

Lee, a former security chief, faces the difficult task of restoring the international financial centre’s reputation after some of the world’s longest-lasting COVID-19 restrictions.

The New Leader’s swearing in is opening a new chapter for the former British colony as it marked 25 years since its return to Chinese rule.
