  • Tourism and retail are two big contributors to Hong Kong’s economy, but they were hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and months of often-violent protests. The economy, which is already in recession, suffered its worst contraction on record in the first three months of the year, and its unemployment rate rose to the highest in more than a decade in the February-April period. With the pandemic on one hand, there is also the uncertainty of the upcoming legislative council elections. Where is Hong Kong’s future headed? Tian Wei talked with Henry Tang Ying-yen, a CPPCC Standing Committee member and also the chairman of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority in Hong Kong. #HK #China

  • In This Story: Hong Kong

    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”.
