 HONG KONG

City of life

Hong Kong, a city with many personalities, is a blend not just of East and West, but of old and new. In this city of contrasts, incense smolders in breadbox size temples next to modern high rise office buildings. Hong Kong has a bustling free market economy highly dependent on international trade.
On the basis of its mini-constitution, the Basic Law, and the Sino-British Joint declaration, the territory returned to Chinese sovereignty in 1997 with promised autonomy for an additional 50 years. How the economy, politics, society and culture of Hong Kong develop in its infancy as a Special Administrative Region of China, and how China’s "One Country, Two Systems" policy will take shape, are topics of considerable interest for study and research. China itself is undergoing dramatic of a startling scope and pace. This process will inevitably affect other countries, in particular those in immediate proximity.
With its singular political, economic and geographical vantage point, its excellent travel facilities and its free flow of information and ideas, Hong Kong is the ideal place to study and observe this unprecedented evolution.
