Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) Vice Chairman Xia Baolong (夏寶龍), 67, is to replace Zhang Xiaoming (張曉明) as director of the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office, the Chinese State Council said, adding that Zhang is to become a vice director.
"It's clear that Xi Jinping wants to have a clear grasp of the situation in Hong Kong - that's the major point", Lo added.
China on Thursday replaced the head of its Cabinet office responsible for Hong Kong following months of anti-government protests in the territory and rising tensions over the outbreak of the viral COVID-19 respiratory illness.
Xia is a former Communist Party secretary - the top local official - of the prosperous eastern province of Zhejiang, where president and Communist Party leader Xi Jinping spent many years as a top official.
The State Council said two other officials will take on deputy director roles in the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office.
Xia's installation follows last month's appointment of Luo Huining (駱惠寧) as head of China's Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in Hong Kong.
