22/07/2020 - 11:59

Since Hong Kong’s handover 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). The EU stands by 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, the Commission issues an annual report on developments in Hong Kong. This is the 22nd report, covering 2019.
