Video: ‘One Country, Two Systems’ lauded in new rap song by state news agency Xinhua

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s transfer of sovereignty, Chinese state media outlet Xinhua has produced a new track praising the city’s “One Country, Two Systems” policy of autonomy.

It follows Xinhua’s hip-hop video promoting President Xi Jinping’s “Four Comprehensives” political theory released last year, and communist party mouthpiece People’s Daily’s rap song on the “One Belt One Road” political-economic strategy released in May.

The first verse of the new track introduces “One Country, Two Systems.” The second praises joint mainland-Hong Kong initiatives such as the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge and the links between the stock exchanges of Hong Kong, Shanghai and Shenzhen.


Netizens and journalists rip Xi Jinping’s surreal tour of state media outlets

Chinese President Xi Jinping paid a visit to the Beijing headquarters of three state media outlets on Friday – CCTV, People’s Daily and Xinhua News Agency.

His visit generated much excitement among mainland Chinese reporters graced by his presence, with CCTV especially proud of their “exclusive”.

A banner spotted at the office stated: “CCTV’s family is The Party; Absolute loyalty; Please inspect us”.
