    Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Friday said that China will improve the relevant systems and mechanisms in its Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) to safeguard national security and ensure better enforcement of the Constitution and the Basic Law. He made the remarks as he delivered the government work report at the opening of the fourth session of the 13th National People’s Congress in Beijing.

    Li said such improvement will guarantee the long-term stability and prosperity for both Hong Kong and Macao SARs on the basis of the “One Country, Two Systems” principle. In the case of the Taiwan region, the premier said that Beijing will remain “highly vigilant against and will resolutely deter any separatist activity seeking ‘Taiwan Independence’.” #TwoSessions #HongKong

    Beijing, China’s sprawling capital, has history stretching back 3 millennia. Yet it’s known as much for modern architecture as its ancient sites such as the grand Forbidden City complex, the imperial palace during the Ming and Qing dynasties.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.

    Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

    The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
