HONG KONG - DANGER YEARS AHEAD

Hong Kong is governed under the principle of "one country, two systems", under which China has agreed to give the region a high degree of autonomy and to preserve its economic and social systems for 50 years from the date of the handover. Can we trust China to keep that commitment ? Hundreds of thousands of people in Hong Kong have continued to protest in the streets since demonstrations began in June 2019.The protests started as an outcry over an extradition bill and have reawakened Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement.

Hong Kong's leaders are demanding big changes to the way the autonomous region is run and some want to stop it fully reuniting with China in 2047.

THE BACKDROP OF THE PROTESTS

Hong Kong, an international finance hub on China’s southern coast, was a British colony until 1997, when it was handed back to China under a policy known as “one country, two systems.” The policy made Hong Kong part of China but let it keep many liberties denied to citizens on the mainland, including free speech, unrestricted internet access and the right to free assembly. The territory has its own laws, system of government and police force under a mini constitution known as the Basic Law. China promised that this system would remain in place until at least 2047.
