Research Report, Issue No.51, 2021. Opportunities, Challenges and Solutions for Hong Kong to Integrate into National Development Course
In the past few years, Hong Kong has been dragged into chaos by events like illegal “Occupy Central” movement and extradition law amendment. After the enactment of the National Security Law for Hong Kong, Hong Kong has been recovering to normal governance from disorder in pursuit of development. Integration into China’s “14th Five-Year Plan” and the development of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has brought about new opportunities for Hong Kong to engage in the national development course. Meanwhile, as the gambling between China and the U.S. becomes the new normal, western countries would intensify their interference with Hong Kong affairs, on top of which inherent problems of Hong Kong also lead to various challenges. China should adopt a variety of measures to help Hong Kong better integrated into the national development and create favorable conditions for its long-term prosperity.
