The Widening Gap Between Hong Kong And China

CNA Insider
Published on Jul 24, 2019

The protests in Hong Kong over the Extradition Bill are just one of at least five major anti-government demonstrations since the city’s return to China on July 1, 1997. The common thread: Resistance against perceived growing Chinese interference in Hong Kong’s affairs. The territory’s diminishing relative importance to Beijing economically, and Hong Kong’s consolidation of its Cantonese culture and political identity, are putting the “one country, two systems” model to the test.
The programme Insight speaks to Bonnie Leung Wing Man, the woman behind the latest protests, and political observers about the road ahead.
