HKSARG's response to United States-China Economic and Security Review Commission 2016 Annual Report

     In response to media enquiries, a spokesman for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSARG) Government today (November 16) said:
     "We note that the United States-China Economic and Security Review Commission Report recognises that Hong Kong remains an important global financial hub, the world's second largest recipient of foreign direct investment inflows and the third largest Asian source of foreign direct investment. As on other issues the Report covers, we should point out that since the return to the Motherland, the HKSAR has been exercising a high degree of autonomy and 'Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong' in accordance with the Basic Law. This demonstrates the successful implementation of the 'one country, two systems' principle, which is widely recognised by the international communities. And we urge foreign parties not to interfere in any form in the internal affairs of Hong Kong."
