This chapter discusses Hong Kong as it slowly evolved into a country with Western influences as it entered the twentieth century. This can be seen in the buildings and the industries that emerged in the country, which were handled by European managers and technicians. In society however, old attitudes still remained in the minds of the people. Social groups and races were still kept apart, but Western people were slowly being employed in certain jobs. The final sections of the chapter are devoted to the development of Hong Kong into a business hub in the Far East and the effects of the First World War on the country.

Keywords:   Western influences, buildings, industries, old attitudes, development, business hub, effects, First World War
