This chapter discusses how Hong Kong became cosmopolitan. It can be noted that by 1865 the country no longer occupied the premier position on the China Coast, because there were other treaty ports that were growing in importance. It discusses the variety of nationalities that lived in Hong Kong, such as Germans, Jews, and Armenians, who slowly took some of the economic power long held by the British.

Keywords:   cosmopolitan, 1865, China Coast, treaty ports, nationalities, economic power, British, Germans, Jews, Armenians
