The Future of Hong Kong

  • 214 Massachusetts Avenue Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

Hong Kong is an issue of growing concern in Washington. The State Department’s most recent human rights report singles out the “central PRC government’s encroachment on the SAR’s autonomy” among the most significant human rights issues in Hong Kong. It also identifies “government actions that had a chilling effect on political protest and the exercise of free speech.” Are these two problems related, why should it matter to the United States, and what can policy makers in Washington do? What exactly is the state of politics in Hong Kong today and the relationship between Hong Kong and the mainland? Please join us for an address by 2007 pan-democrat candidate for Chief Executive Alan Leong and a discussion to follow that will seek to answer these questions and more.
