Hong Kong leader reshuffles cabinet as Beijing tightens oversight

Lam says move unrelated to protests, and her team will focus on economic revival

HONG KONG -- Chief Executive Carrie Lam unveiled her new top administrative team on Wednesday, in a reshuffle that comes amid immense controversy over the roles and powers of Beijing's representatives in Hong Kong.

Speaking at a news conference shortly after Chinese state media announced the personnel changes, Lam said the move will give her government fresh impetus to map out strategies to revive the city's economy, which has been battered over the past year by social unrest and the coronavirus pandemic.
