South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Hong Kong’s Article 23 drama no Bond film, as city contemplates critical decisions on security” – below is their description.
Even British spy James Bond would struggle to unpack the dilemma now Hong Kong faces as it steps forward with national security legislation that counters theft of state secrets, as well as treason and sedition. But as the SCMP’s Cliff Buddle argues, new measures being considered by the city’s government could provide more clarity than the sweeping security law imposed on Hong Kong by China’s central government in 2020.

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”.
