Former President and General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, Jiang Zemin, suffered from leukemia and multiple organ failure, and died in Shanghai at 12:13 on the same day at the age of 96.


Jiang Zemin's relationship with Hong Kong is inextricably linked. The return of Hong Kong and Macau was carried out during his tenure, and he presided over the handover ceremony.

As for another scene most familiar to Hong Kong people, it can be said to be the "Jiang handshake" before the handover.


"Jiang Shakes Hands", Ding Jiangshan.

Official etiquette in the mainland is strict, and handshakes by state leaders are often full of political gold.

In January 1996, the then President Jiang Zemin received the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Preparatory Committee in Beijing. Among the more than 150 preparatory committee members, he deliberately identified Dong Chee-hwa and shook hands with him. An important move to ascend to the throne of Chief Executive.

Tung Chee-hwa won the chief executive election by a large margin, and "Jiang's handshake" was accused of blessing by the central government

Tung Chee-hwa was appointed as a member of the Executive Council (now the Executive Council) during the period of the last Hong Kong Governor Patten, and officially set foot in politics.

On January 26, 1996, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Preparatory Committee was established in Beijing. Jiang Zemin, then General Secretary of the Communist Party of China and President of the State, walked into the crowd of more than 150 preparatory committee members and only shook hands with Tung Chee-hwa. Li Xunta Jiang shook hands", and interpreted as receiving "blessing from the central government".

In the first chief executive election in December of the same year, Tung Chee-hwa won 320 votes out of 400 members of the selection committee, leaving behind opponents Yang Tieliang and Wu Guangzheng by a large margin, and became the first chief executive after the reunification.

On October 27, 2000, Jiang Zemin received the then Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa.

Hong Kong reporter Zhang Baohua asked whether the central government's support for Tung Chee-hwa's re-election was regarded as "hand-picked". It is a more familiar scene under the close relationship between Jiang and Dong.

On October 27, 2000, Jiang Zemin rarely reprimanded Hong Kong journalists as "too simple, sometimes naive".

In 1998, he visited Xingang City Center Shopping Mall and had a close talk with the citizens

As for Jiang Zemin himself, he has visited many times. In addition to presiding over the handover ceremony, he also visited Hong Kong again on the first anniversary of the handover in 1998. He also visited Sha Tin Hospital and Ma On Shan Sunshine City Shopping Center to meet and talk with citizens at close range.

In 2002, the fifth anniversary of the handover, Jiang Zemin visited Hong Kong again to participate in the swearing-in ceremony for Tung Chee-hwa's second term.

In 1998, CCTV news reported that Jiang Zemin visited Ma'anshan Xingang City Center Shopping Mall and talked closely with citizens.
