At the 48th session of the UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday (September 14), minister of the Chinese mission to the UN in Geneva Jiang Duan issued a joint statement on behalf of many countries calling for an investigation into alleged crimes by U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan including the killing of civilians, torture and other human rights abuses. What more did the joint statement say? And how will the UN address these human rights allegations?

China has launched plans to expand one of its most ambitious projects to energize growth and innovation throughout the Pearl River Delta. The Qianhai New District, formed in 2010, will now be expanded from 15 square kilometers to over 120, an area equivalent to Hong Kong island and Kowloon Peninsula combined, and will make Qianhai a leading player in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area. So what’s unfolding in the bay area now? And how is this cooperation zone helping Hong Kong businesses and deepening reform and opening-up in the region?

  • 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”.
