Xi said he has been all along concerned about and caring for Hong Kong. "My heart and the central government's heart are always with the Hong Kong compatriots."

Over a period of time, Hong Kong had withstood a series of grave tests and overcome a series of risks and challenges. Hong Kong has since emerged stronger and shown great vigor, Xi said.

Facts have proven the great vitality of "one country, two systems," which guarantees Hong Kong's long-term prosperity and stability and ensures the well-being of the Hong Kong compatriots, Xi said.

Xi stressed that as long as "one country, two systems" is upheld unswervingly, Hong Kong will surely have an even brighter future and make new, greater contributions to the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Vice-Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference Leung Chun-ying and the incoming sixth-term Chief Executive of the HKSAR John Lee also attended the welcome ceremony.
