外文标题：Hong Kong used to be 18 percent of China's GDP. Now it's 3 percent.
When China gained control of Hong Kong in 1997, it represented an economically significant addition to the territory under Beijing's control. Mainland China had almost 200 times as many people as Hong Kong, yet they did not even produce six times as much stuff. In the 17 years since the handover, though, the Chinese economy has grown a lot faster than Hong Kong's economy has
In 1997, Hong Kong's economy was more than 18 percent the size of the economy of the mainland. Today, the figure is down to three percent. Mainland China produces 30 times as many goods and services as does Hong Kong.
I might move to the Mainland before that. I'm getting tired of all the crappy HK politics.
Then Shenzhen might be the best city for you, since it is geographically close to HK.
And its nominal per capita is about 2/3 of HK, and might surpass it in the near future.
Yeah China is making HK poorer in USD, poorer in human right,
that explain many things.
China didn't make HK poorer, it was those fcking tycoons from HK.
There's so many tycoons in CN mainland. much worse.
Chinese Tiger, could you tell me your own taste.
Do you prefer an appointed leader by a commitee, or a leader voted by yourself?
China's main focus right in on the Mainland, that's why the US chose to ignite the fire in HK because they cannot infiltrate into the Mainland China right now.
You know, last time I visited Hong Kong by way of Cathay Pacific, I was stunned at the cost of commodities. To be honest, cost of living in Hong Kong is similar to that in Tokyo. Sometimes, even a bit more expensive ! But the food prices were reasonable tho. And one thing that i love is that Hong Kongers cook large quantity. So its like you get what you paid for. :smitten:
Not like in Japan where they feed such small portions.
Would u prefer the US huge portion size which is targeted at your typical fat azz Americans ?
Yes, I prefer large quantities. You know why? Because I can always bring the left overs home. Ha ha
