The Chief Executive Carrie Lam has held a meeting with the director of Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office in Beijing, Zhang Xiaoming.
The meeting, which was held behind closed-doors, is part of Lam's annual duty visit to the capital.
Before the meeting, Zhang didn't respond to questions on whether national security issues were to be discussed, or whether Beijing would offer help to four Hong Kong men sentenced to life in jail in the Philippines on drug possession charges.
Lam did not talk to the media after the meeting.
The Chief Executive later attended a banquet hosted by the vice premier, Han Zheng.
