Hong Kong’s ‘one country, two systems’ principle will not change after 2047, senior Beijing legal official says in latest assurance from nation’s top legislative body

  • Shen Chunyao, chairman of Legislative Affairs Commission of National People’s Congress Standing Committee, renews Beijing’s pledge at forum on Basic Law
  • One country, two systems policy was a well-considered, long-term ‘best solution’ to resolve historical issues involving Hong Kong, he tells forum

Hong Kong’s “one country, two systems” governing principle will not be altered and will not change after 2047 with its “vitality and superiority” maintained if it is properly upheld, a top Beijing legal official has said, marking the latest and strongest assurance from the nation’s top legislative body.

Shen Chunyao, chairman of both the Basic Law Committee and Legislative Affairs Commission of China’s top legislative body, the National People’s Congress Standing Committee, was renewing Beijing’s pledge on Hong Kong a month ahead of the 25th anniversary of the city’s return from British to Chinese rule on July 1.

In a keynote speech on Friday, Shen told a forum on the Basic Law, Hong Kong’s mini-constitution, that the one country, two systems policy was a well-considered, long-term “best solution” that had proven successful in maintaining the city’s stability and prosperity.

He said it had also resolved historical issues involving Hong Kong, which returned from British to Chinese rule in 1997 with a guarantee that the city’s way of life would be maintained for 50 years.

“As Hong Kong steps into the 25th anniversary of its reunification with the mainland, people naturally ask what will happen after 25 years … [Paramount leader] Deng Xiaoping had said repeatedly we needed to be more open in order to achieve our development goals,” he said.

“Fifty years is only a visionary description. There will not be changes after 50 years. The first 50 years must not change, there is no need to change after 50 years. Its vitality and superiority will be thoroughly demonstrated, as long as we uphold the ‘one country, two systems’.”

Thousands of people are leaving Hong Kong — and now it’s clear where they’re going

  • Hong Kong lost 93,000 residents in 2020, followed by another 23,000 in 2021. But early estimates show this year will see far more people go.
  • Many people and companies are moving to Singapore, though some expatriates are returning home and Hong Kongers are applying for residency under new visa programs launched in Canada and the United Kingdom.
  • There’s also an increase in moves from Hong Kong to Dubai, Japan, South Korea and Thailand, according to insiders.

They stuck it out during the political protests of 2019.

Then they lasted through nearly two years of pandemic.

But this year, they say they’ve had enough.

Residents of Hong Kong are leaving the city in droves in 2022 — not because they want to, several told CNBC, but because Covid restrictions and what they see as an erosion of democratic norms are pushing them to leave.

A surge in departures is accelerating a “brain drain” of professional talent — a situation which hit fever pitch around March, as omicron-driven Covid cases skyrocketed across the city.

Now Hong Kong’s ever-chipper lifestyle websites, once dominated by articles about the city’s best dim sum and foot massages parlors, are focusing on moving to-do lists and farewell gift guides.
‘Absolute mass exodus’

The office of Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but Lam said on April 26 that the government’s Covid rules balance health and economic interests with public tolerance levels.
