    On March 30, top Chinese lawmakers unanimously approved the draft of the Hong Kong electoral reform plan, with revised measures for electing the chief executive of China’s Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and the Legislative Council’s formation. This came after the country’s top legislature decided to improve HKSAR’s electoral system on March 11, a major step in tackling the loopholes in the region’s governance structure and meeting the fundamental requirements of “patriots administering Hong Kong”.

    In this video, some Hong Kong residents warmly expressed their support for this move, saying such reform is justified and progressive and will promote the region’s long-term stability and prosperity.

    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”.
