Summary 內容: 香港成為特別行政區20年以來,與中國的關係是愈走愈近,抑或矛盾日益加深?

Hong Kong marks the 20th anniversary of the handover from British to Chinese rule. President Xi Jinping noted the successful practice of ‘One Country, Two Systems’, and called for greater patriotism and stronger sense of national identity among the people in Hong Kong as he kicked off the 19th Party Congress last year.
Meanwhile, some say tensions between Hong Kong and the Mainland have shown signals of escalating, for instance pro-democracy legislators were disqualified and a candidate was banned from by-election due to her notion of self-determination.
This forum is the third session of the series ‘Welcome to China’.
