The historical developments in Hong Kong have always been defined by its relationship with mainland China. The changing permeability of the “border” between Hong Kong and China largely embodies the changing dynamics of their relationship. This historical context is crucial for putting in perspective the nature of the British contribution to Hong Kong, as well as the many economic and social policy debates that are surfacing at the moment and will be faced in the coming years.

Keywords:   Historical perspective, British contribution, Policy debates, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Relationship, Economy, Policies
