Description

Hong Kong was siezed by the British after the opium wars of 1840. Last century, rapid growth through liberal economic policies saw it become one of the world's richest cities and the eighth largest economy in the world.

It was returned to China in 1997 under the provision of the Basic Law, which guarantees the maintenance of existing legal, political and economic structures - as well as religious freedom - for the next fifty years.
