Lam will instead visit Shenzhen for the special economic zone’s 40th anniversary celebration, where Chinese President Xi Jinping will deliver a speech, according to state media. Lam said the postponement was to make way for a late October meeting in Beijing to discuss proposals on Hong Kong’s economic recovery with the Chinese authorities.
