This is the first volume of The Other Hong Kong Report after Hong Kong returned to China. The whole world is interested to know how Hong Kong has fared, whether its transition has been smooth, and whether the vaunted qone country, two systemsq model is working. Twenty-five experts have contributed papers on topics in their specialties. The topics are divided into five broad groups, covering the political scene, the economy, population and manpower, social welfare, and infrastructure and the environment. The papers deal with latest developments of Hong Kong during the first year of the Special Administrative Region (SAR), paying particular attention to changes since the handover and the current problems. Following the tradition of freedom of speech and respect for divergent views of the previous volumes, the book contains papers with critical as well as supportive views of the SAR policies. The book will be of value to scholars, students, professionals, journalists, businessmen, government officials, and the general public and will appeal to all those who have an interest in Hong Kong, especially those living abroad.... many of whom were making major decisions over the Chinese New Year holidays in January about whether or not to ... the fundamentals concern having a job, and the stability of flat prices, rents inflation, interest rates and the stock market.
