Since the handover of Hong Kong to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1997, the European Union (EU) and its Member States have closely followed political and economic developments in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) under the ‘one country, two systems’ principle. The EU adheres to its ‘one China’ policy and supports the ‘one country, two systems’ principle and its implementation. In line with the commitment given to the European Parliament in 1997, an annual report is issued on developments in Hong Kong. This is the 20th report, covering developments in 2017.
