Description

Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after Qing China ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842.  The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War, and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The entire territory was transferred to China in 1997.  As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China.[20] Although the territory is now politically associated with China, a relative majority of the population self-identify as Hongkongers rather than Chinese
