Outgoing Chief Executive Carrie Lam says she will quit Facebook and Instagram when she steps down from office on June 30.

In what she said was her last post on her social media accounts, Lam thanked everyone who has followed her and left comments to share their feelings.

Lam also noted that she will soon be moving out of the Chief Executive’s Office and Government House, thanking staff who have helped her with her work, daily life and security.

“As we are about to part, everyone is touched with a tinge of sadness,” she said.

The outgoing leader also said President Xi Jinping will attend the new government’s inauguration and the SAR’s 25th anniversary celebrations to show the central authorities’ care for the city.

She said the speech Xi made five years ago when she took office had given her faith when she faced difficult challenges.

“Now that Hong Kong’s resumed order and returned to the right track of ‘One Country, Two Systems’, we look forward to President Xi’s important speech on the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover to point to the right direction for the SAR to journey on,” she said.

“I wish Hong Kong a better tomorrow, and everyone in Hong Kong a happy life and good luck!” she concluded.
