Hong Kong has thrived in its role as a unique gateway to China, facilitating the runaway global economic success story of the city. Underlying Hong Kong’s success is the “One Country, Two Systems” arrangement, and the many principles guaranteed under it that have become Hong Kong’s competitive advantages such as the rule of law, free flow of capital, talent, information. It is the “One Country, Two Systems” arrangement that gives Hong Kong its uniqueness, appealing to investors as an ideal two-way platform for business between China and the rest of the world.
A national law to safeguard national security in Hong Kong, enacted by the National People’s Congress of China, has come into effect since July 1, 2020. What does the new law say? What does it mean to the business community? Will Hong Kong continue to thrive as a global financial center and a business hub? What are the other challenges Hong Kong is facing and what are the opportunities ahead?
