CE in Beijing on duty visit
(12-17 11:16)

Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying is in Beijing for his second duty visit.
During his four-day stay, he is going to report to state leaders on Hong Kong's latest economic, social and political developments. Leung's annual duty visit comes amid growing concerns that Beijing wants to pre-screen chief executive candidates in the 2017 election -- when Hong Kong's next leader is elected through universal suffrage.
It's expected that the consultation on political reform launched earlier this month will be the top item in his agenda when he briefs state leaders in coming days. Leung will meet Premier Li Keqiang and President Xi Jinping.
He will also hold talks with the director of the Hong Kong and Macau Office Wang Guanya before he leaves on Thursday. --RTHK
