A high-level seminar on the relationship between the Communist Party of China and “One Country, Two Systems” was held in Hong Kong Saturday. Luo Huining, director of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region said: “Those trying to turn Hong Kong into a pawn in geopolitics, a tool to curb China, as well as a bridgehead for infiltrating the mainland, are destroying the foundation of ‘One Country, Two Systems,’ and they are the real enemies of Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability.”

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”.
