This year marks the 23rd anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to her motherland. On July 1, 1997, the Chinese government resumed exercise of sovereignty over Hong Kong, and that opened a new era, featuring the principles of “one country, two systems”, “the people of Hong Kong administering Hong Kong” and a high degree of autonomy. Hong Kong has since embarked on a journey of unity and common development with the motherland. Since its return, with strong support from the motherland, Hong Kong withstood the impact of the Asian financial crisis, the SARS epidemic, the global financial crisis and the recent COVID-19 pandemic, and emerged stronger as an international financial, shipping and trading center. It has made great progress in the economy, rule of law, people’s livelihood and other various fields.
