This chapter discusses the Chinese and their position in Hong Kong in relation to the Europeans. The Chinese saw the Europeans as having inflicted two humiliating defeats on the Chinese Empire and felt that they had forced the Chinese to sign much disliked treaties during the previous century. These two communities had little communication and there was little trust between them. They also both developed their own sets of guidelines and rules for administering to the needs of those they considered their people.

Keywords:   Chinese, position, Europeans, disliked treaties, communication trust, guidelines, rules, needs
