Hong Kong SAR

Hong Kong has rarely left world headlines since China ceded it to Britain in 1843 having been defeated in the first Opium war. Now one of the world’s three premier financial centres, the UK handed Hong Kong back to China in 1997. Hong Kong vividly illustrates the clash between Chinese values and governance and those of the West. ‘The Reasonable Man’ sees the arguments on both sides. At the heart of it all are different cultures.
