Over the past two decades after Hong Kong's return to the motherland, its economy has benefited greatly from being plugged into China's economic boom and Hong Kong has been further integrated into China's development plan.
During the past few weeks, Hong Kong has been faced with protests. This video reviews the history of Hong Kong and its connection with Chinese mainland. When China began its reform and opening up over 40 years ago, investment from Hong Kong poured in to help build what China is today. When Sichuan was hit by a devastating earthquake in 2008, Hongkongers stood with their compatriots both spiritually and financially.
Everyone who cherishes Hong Kong has been saddened by the violence and vandalism.
Let's work hard to get Hong Kong back on track as soon as possible.
Let Hong Kong shine again.
