“Love China, love Hong Kong and love yourselves”. This is his appeal on the front pages in the advertising sections of leading Hong Kong newspapers.

He, subscribing as "a Hong Kong citizen", added that "you need to change anger to love" and "stop the violence."

The billionaire, whose fortune exceeds $ 30 billion, recalled that "the road to hell has been paved with good intentions," and emphasized: "I think that the government has heard the voices of protesters, voiced loud and clear, and now it’s earnestly racking its brains to solve problems."

This, according to the media, is Li’s first public reaction to the events in Hong Kong.

Mass protests began in Hong Kong in the first half of June in response to the local administration’s plans to amend the extradition law to allow extradition of suspected offenders to mainland China. After the Hong Kong authorities refused, protesters began to demand an investigation by the police against excessive protest methods, as well as the resignation of Hong Kong administration head Carrie Lam.
