The Future of Hong Kong :: 香港的未来 12:00 12th Mar / The Bookworm – Beijing
Jason Y. Ng, Didi Kirsten Tatlow; moderated by Tom Phillips
Ever since the handover in 1997 – and actually long before that – questions have swirled about the future of Hong Kong. But after the events of the past year and a half, these questions have taken on an urgent tone. At the heart of the matter: how much longer can Deng Xiaoping’s One Country, Two Systems principle survive? Jason Y. Ng, bestselling author of HONG KONG State of Mind and Umbrellas in Bloom, and Beijing-based New York Times writer Didi Kirsten Tatlow, who was born and raised in Hong Kong, will discuss the future of this former British colony. Moderated by Guardian reporter Tom Phillips.
