This volume is an outcome of a conference summarizing and reflecting on Hong Kong's development, ten years after its return to the Chinese motherland. The chapters focus on assessing the extent to which the one country, two systems model implemented by the Chinese government for the resumption of Hong Kong sovereignty has been actualized, as well as the achievement of and challenges faced by Hong Kong as China's first special administrative region, known as the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). The initial chapters describe the understanding of the development of Hong Kong after the handover among those from the outside. From the Chinese perspective, Jin Qingguo explains how implementation of the one country, two systems concept has been successful in terms of ensuring the smooth transfer of sovereignty, the establishment of HKSAR administration by the Hong Kong people, the promotion of economic and political stability, and the prevention of exploitation by the Chinese government.
