Situated on the eastern Pearl River Delta, on China’s southern coast with the South China Sea, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People’s Republic of China, is defined as a city and administrative region. Thirty-seven miles east of Macau, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.
Incorporated into China during the Qin dynasty, Hong Kong was established as a Portuguese trading post before it became a British colony in 1841. It expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860, and further still when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. Hong Kong was occupied by the Japanese in WWII, with British administration resuming after the war. It was transferred to China in 1997.
Today, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems to mainland China, following the principle of ‘’one country, two systems’’. The governing regime, however, is not fully representative of the Hong Kong population. It is divided into eighteen districts, each with its own council.
Hong Kong is one of the world’s most significant financial centres and commercial ports. In the past it was a strong manufacturer, but its economy relies overwhelmingly on the service sector, much of it from the public sector. Shipping and tourism are important contributors.
Hong Kong has the largest number of skyscrapers in the world, and a highly developed, reliable public transport system. It generates most of its electricity locally.
Culturally diverse and a true hybrid of east and west, Hong Kong has developed its own cultural identity, despite the majority Chinese population. Since 1997, the majority of the population identifies as ‘’Hong Konger’’. Traditional Chinese family values and sense of duty prevail.
“Cantopop” or Hong Kong style of pop music, emerged in the 1970s and still remains strong. Food is predominantly Cantonese in origin. The film industry was always strong in Hong Kong but has declined significantly since 1997. Sport and recreation are key components of Hong Kong life and it hosts a number of important events, including Dragon boat racing, rugby sevens, tennis and equestrian events.
On the world stage, whilst not a country in its own right, Hong Kong participates in a number of organisations such as APEC, the IMF and Interpol.
