A Brief History
Hong Kong was a British colony from 1842, until its sovereignty was transferred to the People's Republic of China (PRC) in 1997.
As a special administrative region, Hong Kong is guaranteed by the Basic Law to have a relatively high degree of autonomy until at least 2047, fifty years after the transfer of sovereignty.
Under the "One Country, Two Systems" policy, it retains its own legal system, currency, customs policy, cultural delegation, international sport teams, and immigration laws.
