Contemporary Hong Kong Politics

Ray Yep

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter provides a general overview of the extent of social and economic integration between Hong Kong and the Mainland. It also outlines the formal communication channels between the two administrations, followed by an analysis of the irony of the growing tension between Hong Kong and the Mainland in spite of the growing integration and bureaucratic exchanges. The roles of Beijing, the Tung administration, and the Hong Kong people are critically investigated. The chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) holds the key to better communication and understanding between Hong Kong and Beijing, and the resignation of Tung Chee-hwa may have opened the door for a more effective dialogue.

Keywords:   Hong Kong, Mainland, Beijing, Tung Chee-hwa, HKSAR, administrations
