Luo Huining head of Adm-Hong Kong

China’s new representative in Hong Kong met the press for the first time.

Wang Zhimin is replaced by Luo Huining as head of the Liaison Office. “Luo rose through the ranks in Qinghai Province, in western China, where Beijing has pursued increasingly stringent policies toward a large Tibetan minority.”

Last week, following seven months of unrest, China suddenly announced it was appointing Luo Huining a former governor of Qinghai and party leader in Shanxi, to succeed Wang Zhimin as head of the Liaison Office in the special administrative region.

Luo, a 65-year-old economist, took office on Monday (Jan. 6) and met the media on the same day, the Liberty Times reported.
