Hong Kong is supposed to be ruled under the Basic Law of the British magistrate legal system for 50 years after June 30, 1997. At first there was a honeymoon period in which almost nothing seemed to change in Hong Kong under China. But the Asian financial market crisis of 1998 has weakened the Hong Kong economy. Nevertheless, Hong Kong will remain the major business and export center of China for may years to come. Of greater concern is the protection of democratic ideals and individual freedoms in Hong Kong ; recent incidents indicate that Beijing wants complete control over serious political and legal issues. - (SLD)
