HKSAR’s 20th Anniversary

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to the motherland and the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
 
Since 1997, Hong Kong has thrived under the principles of "one country, two systems", and "Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong" with a high degree of autonomy.
 
The 20th Anniversary is a significant milestone for our country and the people of Hong Kong. The theme of our celebrations is “Together • Progress • Opportunity”, which embodies the core values of Brand Hong Kong as a free, enterprising and innovative city committed to excellence and quality living; and as a dynamic, cosmopolitan, diverse and secure society that thrives on connectivity with the world.
 
We have much to celebrate about our progress together over the past 20 years; but there are many more opportunities to come as we face the next 20 years, and beyond, together here in Asia’s world city.
