Hong Kong House in Sydney (80 Druitt Street) explodes with colour and activity next Thursday 28th June, to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
Many will still recall that momentous time in history when Hong Kong’s handover from British to Chinese sovereignty took place and the incredible celebrations and fireworks that shook Hong Kong to mark the occasion.
That handover event, now 15 years ago on the 1 July, marked the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). This launched the city into the world spotlight not only as a leading international financial centre but also as the all important business gateway to China.
Under the principle of ‘one country, two systems’ Hong Kong has different systems from mainland China. Its independent judiciary functions under a Common Law Framework while its constitution, the Basic Law, governs its political system stipulating a high degree of autonomy in all matters except foreign affairs and defence.
Following are 15th Anniversary activities to look out for:
