Joining me is Leon Fresco apart it Holland and Knight. Trump has asked the Supreme Court to let the president exclude undocumented immigrants from the census count. Now most people thinking about this will say, what wasn't this settled by the Supreme Court when the court ruled that the administration couldn't at a citizenship question to the senses? Well, that was a different case in citizenship question was divided on a procedural issue rather than the substantive decision of whether you could ask about citizenship and defensive. It was decided on the fact that the bargain of Commerce defensive Bureau will follow the correct for a feeder, then ordered to add that voice and so late in the process about citizenship and that the reason that the government day for riding that citizenship question work pretextual.

But there is a minimum standard of the public show sits now for us to where we kind of look at it as.

Would that so I would say like you know it is it was set salaries and I would say in the plays paid very well compared to the cost of living in Taiwan. Not. Expensive to live in Taiwan and like even like two three, thousand dollars a month. Maybe in Hong Kong that won't get you anywhere. But in in Taiwan given the cost of living there is actually really really good money. Relative to sort of the markets that we're in I think it's good money. So I think it's kind of their but compared to like the US in China. And Korea I think it's A huge gap between sort of where we ought Yes. Yes. Really interesting.

Why Are Chinese Stocks Delisting

"Sina Corp, which is the online media company based in China is being taken private by Charles. Chao, who is the chairman and CEO. The deal is being valued around two and a half billion dollars. Shares, of Sina Corp up about six percent, not quite at the buyout price. But getting there and all indications are that, yes the normal approvals will have to kick into place but this seems like a deal that's going to get done. What was your reaction when you saw this news? I was surprised because out of all the Chinese companies that I thought could be taken private or otherwise be delisted move elsewhere seen wooden have been the first one that I would have assumed bit the bullet but thinking about it more I'm not as surprised this is kind of a legacy Chinese social media company they spun off their steak and wayball. which is kind of like Chinese twitter. It has a interface very similar to that micro blogging platform. So the steak with an itself is really that's that's the value behind Sina and they made that spinoff. But when you look at the economics behind being listed in China taking yourself private potentially listing elsewhere whether that be Hong Kong or on a foreign exchange. It kind of makes sense the perspective from a lot of Chinese companies right now and granted again did not think that was going to be the first one that we saw bite the bullet but the perspective from a lot of Chinese companies is that they're simply not getting a fair shake in the markets here in the United States. So I'm not surprised to this happening and I, don't think that this'll be the last company that we either see take themselves private in the case of this show and chairman or otherwise list themselves on a different exchange. This certainly is something seen more of in twenty twenty than we've seen the last few years. By my count, we've got more than a dozen. Chinese companies listed on US exchanges that. have either been taken private or are in the process of being taken private, and this is going to be the most since twenty. Fifteen. I have to believe in you know we. Studiously avoid politics on this show, but I have to believe the political atmosphere is a healthy percentage of why this is happening. There's definitely a way to have the conversation without making it political just think about it from the perspective of a Chinese company. If you're doing business, your business is solely focused in China, but you're listed on exchange in a foreign country like the United States. The geopolitical risks that exists there is actually very real for these companies and may not impact their core business, right? If they're just doing business in China, it's Understandable that why would why would enter political situations 'cause your business to change? It doesn't but what it does cost a change is the evaluation that your company receives on a different exchange. So taking yourself private is a kind of extreme reaction against Cena's a little bit of a legacy player here what we're actually seeing more and more companies do is actually just duelists themselves have a second listing oftentimes on Hong Kong. Chinese shop Affi-. If you will bow soon, recently had a secondary listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange we seen Baiju hearing rumors about potential dual sting from by`due. That's probably the direction that we're going to see. Chinese companies taking is essentially saying we're GONNA. dualist ourselves to reduce the valuation risk that exists with being listed on a foreign exchange where it goes from here is anybody's guess but from my perspective, this is kind of an understandable reaction to quickly degrading political situation.

To stand down and stand by. Also, Dr Anthony found. She's contradicted what the president said last night about his view on a mask wearing in San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg. Juliet. Thank you. Add. Let's get back to Chris Western Head of Research of papers. Stone Financial on the line from Melbourne for us, we were talking about the presidential debate also want to talk about the issues that we're hearing that Steve Mnuchin has proposed $400 a week in the unemployment benefits with seeing S and P 500 futures rise by about half of one per cent is is kind of going to be the game changer we're looking for, particularly as we were hearing about these terrible job losses in the Ellen industry. What about game change? But it is definitely needed. I mean, Only thinking good day around the world recently. I mean, they're also into this. We go into the next couple of months that will testify against a disposable income in the U. S cell to pull back a little bit. You gotta love these. The previous executive orders due to expire in early October. Get pushed out any way that we could get a firm stimulus package which mitigates the need to do that, then. You know, you like to say that our performance from Global Day and us on global Day continue to improve as we go into this this election, so those sort of mitigate that risk? I think economics is so important. I think stimulus package. He is very much needed and would continue T provide benefits The markets that said still A lot of bravado from both parties. And then it still made the pulse through the Senate, and that could be quite expecting going to himself. But I think just what detective sort of perfection that we're seeing Few boys coming in spoons and FBI sexes Now at 1.5% Taking buying into the chosen few are stocks is that people are saying well, which some of it left behind if there is a firm announcement in agreement between in the House and in between Pelosi and the Nation Then you really don't want to get left behind in case he actually does teach a suppression into the election. Yeah, I'm sure they're looking at polling data to as many of these senators are facing reelection. And you know, you gotta wonder what the headlines when people open their you know, browser and log on to their favorite news website, and you see 28,000 jobs, leaving Disney in the airline industry. We just rattled off some figures. I mean, the news flow is actually working against you if you wantto appear or run the risk of appearing as an obstructionist, but I'm curious to get your take on how trades were being put on now and the degree of leverage. That may be applied in some of these positions, given the fact that interest rates are so low. I mean, do you think that people are gearing up on on some of the bets that they're making? We can't say I'm looking in the new best banking. We don't say that sort of fly. If you have to take something off the It's like the You know the commitment, tried his report and have a look at legs, which farms and what they're doing in things like, you know, NASDAQ futures except the futures and you know the equity market. They think a little bit of buying the non commercial shorts that we're saying in NASDAQ futures already Hellboy other recordable rather than the leverage community, so they're not really getting carried away by this sort of situation. In the effects markets, speaking to an investment banks leverage funds are not really getting carried away by positioning going into the election. But I think you take away from the leverage side of things. You know, Volatilities having some really interesting spice. And you know what? Try to fall going not just in the tampering in the S and P but also affects markets. If you look it Don't again a month, one month bowls, You know, that's been an all time high, So I'm not that kind of a sort of a sideways from from from talking that leverage in the market, But I think if we're talking about what we're doing ahead of the election, I It has been a large degree of hedging in electing you, Andi. Nice to that sort of people position themselves using optionality rather than actually reducing those core positions you can actually buy Buy gold into the election is a hedge there as well. Just very quickly. Christian speaking of that your calls on effect because he still say the dull awakening longer term Like you. I mean, I think if we were to get a place with you know what they said in the CAF, But that would be the relationship and I think parents expectations Breakevens. Would move up fast, but not nothing with probably there has been a strong correlation in cycle between five and 10 years. Real yields Onda weakening dollar on our suspect That will be the case with all the other schools that money in capitalist microbes growing. Yeah, well, you know, you could see to say that I sort of tried playing out. But, you know, I think a lot of real use Lot of years. Chris. Thanks for joining us and stay well in Melbourne.

Interview with Crime Writer Tom Vater: S. 6, Ep. 7 - burst 1

"My assumption is that you started with journalism in went into crime writing, but that beaker. Well actually. So happened hand in hand because. The first Arctic rival road for newspaper wasn't one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven. A paper in in Nepal and while I was there. I started thinking about rising my first novel, the Devil's Road to cap on do which then eventually came out in two thousand four. So it kind of happened at the same time but. But I I would say that you know between the pieces of fiction I right there along gaps for professional reasons and so Leap. Most of the time I have a day job. I do journalism and when I have some months often I can sit down and write a novel. So you're primarily a journalist who also does crime rate. Yeah you could say that I also own a a small publishing. House. crimewave press, which is a crime fiction imprint based in Hong Kong, which does mostly e books published about thirty two titles by. All sorts of oldest many of them from the US. So that's that's my Gig. So I, I kind of do three different things. I'm a crime fiction writer I I'm a very small press publisher with just one Papa and For crime, fiction novels in a bunch of short stories. And interested in the fact that you do so much stuff Most interested in in in the notion of of journalists going into this sort of thing because it tradition of journalists going into to fiction writing is historically something I've always been kind of intrigued by which is why I majored in journalism actually because of my interest in writing and in fiction general What made you choose crime fiction in particular as genre. There's probably several things. One is Zora fiction kind of makes it easy to because it's got many established rules and tropes and. Conventions and and so in that sense, it's it's quite conservative. You as a writer, there's another things to hold onto when you're writing your first novel because it has to go away. If you're GONNA follow crime fiction conventions if you write literary fiction, it's it seems at least to me when I was in my twenties, it seemed much disorienting and I didn't know how Radia how I would do that character development always stuff. But in in crime fiction, you know you have set in stock characters and set. Ways the plots develop and and and end in the end. So so I felt seventy with my best novel, the Devil's role to Kathmandu that I wanted to just ride to a sort of. Conventional Adventure story you know with. it's it's the story of four young guys who in nineteen, seventy five hit the hippie trail between between London Kathmandu and drive a van from London to come do an on the way they they. They make a drug deal that goes horribly wrong. And Is Disappears with the money. Mail saying how? Do and get your shouts the money. So that it's it's like a classic kind of adventure story that I wanted to create an I just how that. All Crime Fiction Travel Zara which would be the easiest way of turning that into a reality.

Evergrande bond trading halted on reports of cash crunch

"Extremely volatile session in the company's shares. We got reports of developers fearing a cash crunch. Let's bring in China Markets co anchor David English, David Get us up to speed with the story. It is a fast paced, developing one. Certainly we've had news in the last hour. Absolutely absolutely. And in fact, I'm just looking at just the shares right now. And we have about 30 40 minutes left before we entered a lunch break here in Hong Kong. We It probably fell yesterday. It fell at the open, then erase all those losses and traded higher and as we speak, it's not a raise. As much as what I think a 7% game. I mentioned it earlier when I was speaking with Yvonne and Tom. There's a lot of ifs in the story, and certainly it depends where you go and how this develops and could well be have massive market implications. That could mean one option or one scenario, or it also could be the world's Biggest nothing burger, really, if it does avarice that cash crunch But again there lots of there's a lot of uncertainty right now, which, I guess partly explains one to move in the equity market and second. More importantly, the pressure that has been consistent In the bond markets where you have, say 24 and five year bonds of the company that owns the local bonds, for example, maturing 2023 2024 falling as much as 20% last I checked in Shanghai. And have been have been halted, in fact, for about 30 minutes, But that was as of about an hour ago, so they should be trading right now, But it's it's precisely Rish and has how you would expect something like this to play out in the market. To a lesser extent in the equity markets, But the money's as they mentioned are continuing to be under pressure. We're trading over 90 yesterday were roughly in the mid seventies right now. Dave. It does seem like investors, a mauling the implications of this I mean, take a look at the stocks. You know, in the money in losses back and forth. What sparked this in the first place? What's this warning coming from the company? So it was. It was a letter that the company on it was a letter, dated about a month ago and it was from the company was sent to the Guandong government and essentially outlining If you will, the worst a really bad scenario. I wouldn't see worse case a really bad scenario in which if if they don't manage to get support for restructuring and part of that restructuring with then see, perhaps, or possibly see Them getting a listing in Shin Jin. If they don't get back, they're up against a deadline. January 31st, and that's when strategic investors may bow out. If that doesn't get extended, then it's this cash crunch $19 billion, as much as that. And to put that into context, size and scope. That's over 90% of their cash and cash equivalents. Not they're not. They're total assets but cash, but in other words, it's a sizable portion that they have to face. Not. The company's also come out separately with a statement responding to certain things that name seen on social media, and I'm going to read that just so I could be very, very precise here that the relevant documents and pictures Are fabricated as pure and are pure defamation, causing serious damage to the company's reputations. That's two sides of the story is an ongoing and developing one. As you would imagine.

So a tremendous individual and it's a privilege to host them. Here today. Tony thanks for joining the next. So the pleasure to be here, thanks for inviting me to share some of my thoughts and insights with with your audience. Absolutely my friend. So tell me a little bit about your journey. How did you decide on healthcare? So I academically studied electrical engineering and that's actually where I caught the bug Ford being more entrepreneurial minded and how I focused by professional life I used to build and race solar electric race cars really. Little coffee that I helped build up and and I started my career in consulting and during that period was great you know lots of. Ways to learn and be mentally intellectually challenged. But in two thousand, I had just finished doing work in Silicon Valley and that was the first Internet wave and lots of excitement about transformation and as I started business school I really thought about where did I want to dedicate my time and energy in terms of industry focus for several different reasons including personal wants healthcare just jumped out. I love the fact that you can build technology and it helps people live longer have better quality of life I had a couple of. Personal Peoria friends who dealt with health issues. I had an aunt who passed away from kidney failure and so all that just came together for me to say I can wake up every morning. Feeling excited that what I do is helping at least one individual of a better life love that man yeah. It's a compelling reason to choose the field and with your knowledge and background you've been able to make a big impact and so I'd love to hear from you. Tony will you think is should be the big thing. On health leaders agenda and how are you approaching it back when I started my first business in two thousand one, there was a lot of emphasis in terms of whereas the healthcare industry in the US the US at the time and fast forward through time they're still an enormous amount of of focus in the US in the healthcare sector is digital health or health tech has grown the US. Market clearly is an important one, but I'd say that equally as important that on every health leaders mind should be what can they Learn from what's happening in. Asia and Asia whether Asia's an opportunity or not is there are there things that Asia offers in accelerating growth and scale and product that can be leveraged for for their business and couple of facts about Asia that I think are important for plus billion people forty four countries over two thousand languages spoken and normally large region and from an investment perspective this two, twenty, eighteen we saw the Asia approaching the same amount of investment to help tech startups is in the US style so within the next. Eighteen months you'll see that Asia, actual have more capital being deployed from the venture community and startups. So when I say that every health leader medically look at Asia, it's because the region is just is as awards today with with a much greater growth potential in the number of people countries. So there was a book I read recently by Kaifu who was a venture investor, in China, who formerly headed up Google China and used to work. For Apple and driving their early AI, and he doesn't amazing job painting the picture for China's one country when when important region round where they're going with a and how it's different than the US and I think that's the key thing that a takeaway for health for health leaders it's just a different technical environment data standards, and in the way that the tencent and Alibaba by do have changed China much the same way that Google facebook. Changed West is lots of learning that can happen man that's fascinating stuff Tony and folks I forgot to mention to you that Tony Lives and works in Singapore. So he's he's been there for the last five years this time around but definitely, a global health leader focused on Asia that knows the INS and outs. So critical critical piece of of information there everybody. To know. Tony, without a doubt there's there's opportunity over there. The money's flowing over there. Give us an example of of what you've seen is working and creating results. Yeah. The landscape for Asia is complex As I said, there's lots of countries and so before a answered that question, let me give a little bit of context as to how to think about the region. So. One is mentioned China and you can group Hong Kong and China together from thinking about one of six hubs in the region. The other hubs are the Indian subcontinent, which obviously is driven largely by India, but there's other countries their third. It'd be Japan for the be the Korean. Peninsula, which includes South Korea Fifty Southeast Asia Singapore and then six to be Australia New Zealand and I didn't do these in any order of size of just kind of went north to south and regret yeah, an each hub has. Similarities that that make a logical grouping whether it's economic development or cultural lifestyle history or climate.

"I found a having covered the handover I found it fascinating to go back so many years later and so I probably five or six trips over a period of two three months, and what was interesting is there were a lot of students, but there were a lot of ordinary Hong Kong people who? Had to develop a certain political identity. They didn't see themselves as mainland Chinese, they didn't see themselves as. People who lived under the government of the Chinese? Communist Party? They have a very separate identity and very separate values. I'm going I. Talk to people in Hong Kong I. It's talking to people in the mainland I would say they have very little. In common, the conversations are different. The values are different, and that's part of a a lot of this conflict is over identity. So the Chinese Communist, party is very worried about holding the country together as people have become so much more wealthy, more sophisticated greater expectations because of the growth as well as their own travel in education overseas, and what it feels it has to do on its periphery is to break. Other identities say that's what they're doing. Everybody in Hong Kong knows that they want to turn Hong Kong into just another southern city in China. I mean it's interesting of course. China is a country of many many identities. Well not from the Party's perspective, so let's look at the periphery because I think it's very good to look at the periphery of China. Understand where the Communist Party is coming from what are their greatest fears? and. Let's watch what they've done in Tibet. There was a period of time a number of years ago, where monks relating themselves on fire because of the repression, and they put monasteries cities on lockdown and I gotta say this is very different from what I was there in the nineties. I mean in the nineties in Beijing. Yes, it's an authoritarian country, but it was pretty free wheeling, and you could talk to a lot of people about a lot of topics and people were not scared..

"Thank you for joining us. Happy to be here Sir so as you like. The rest of the world has been watching Hong Kong is. Undergoing a wave of major protests will get to a little bit later in our conversation, but I WANNA go back a little bit. Because you are on the ground in Hong, Kong in Nineteen, ninety seven. With the handover. Let's talk about how hung on with a colony to begin with well it you know. The history of the city is completely different than the history of any other city in China I mean obviously There were neocolonial cities like Shanghai, which retreated ports Hong Kong was indeed a colony, and so from the from eighteen, forty, nine, forty, two on, it had a completely different. Different system and it was also incredibly successful one. You had British rule of law. You didn't have democracy, but it was a much more open and cosmopolitan place. It was a watching post for China, and it was also a kind of a mix of east and west in many good ways. There are a lot of sort of the protections of Western society but. Very rich Chinese culture right there on the south, China, sea. So a very different city than you would find anywhere else in China and I think we're seeing those differences really most acutely right now, and we should acknowledge that Hong Kong major port obviously. The. How did that have an impact on its culture? I think it's much more cosmopolitan. You gotTA remember up until. Seventy, nine, the opening particularly with the United States China during the was was just incredibly close, so for instance I lived in Shanghai and my kids went to Shanghai American school. That's a school with over one hundred years of history, but there's a long period of time. When it wasn't even open, it was closed because under Mao there was almost no access from the West and particularly for Americans. Hong Kong was always sort of this cosmopolitan hub just right up against the mainland, and then of course Hong Kong Island just off the mainland. So ninety seven. Yeah, here there on the ground in the run-up to and then the actual night of the handover. What did it feel like to be there? You did feel like it was a huge moment. In the history of Communist China and basically China and the West. China has been. The from a Chinese perspective they talk about is you're probably very familiar. Listeners will be familiar. The hundred years of humiliation in which they lost Hong Kong they had to open up these treaty ports in places like Shanghai which they didn't want to do, they were forced to do that and then war with the Japanese invasion, all of that and so what? What the Chinese. Government the Communist Party's been doing for quite some time now is sort of consolidating what it lost bringing back, Hong Kong in ninety, seven, Macau from the Portuguese and ninety nine, eventually Taiwan and so that sort of the perspective, and so you could see a much much stronger China in ninety-seven, still maybe the seventh or eighth largest economy in the world beginning. Beginning to consolidate and return to sort of the way it saw itself historically, and of course the British having to give it up, and it was very interesting to. There is some writing on this that I. Think and if I remember correctly in the archives that there was talk of the British trying to introduce some sort of democracy and Deng Xiaoping threatening to send the. The People's Liberation Army and because even then he knew that you couldn't have that. You couldn't have a Chinese city. Right up against that border with a completely different system, but they did usher in One Country Two Systems. What does that mean well? It means something very different today than it did ninety. The whole concept was that Hong Kong after ninety and for fifty years. Would be able to keep its way of life. Essentially, that means the British rule of law system free speech free press. They're very good. In terms of anti-corruption, it's a much more Western kind of society and was that negotiated at. What point between the British and the Chinese zoos between Deng, Xiaoping and Margaret, Thatcher, in eighty, four or so yeah. And so the. Idea was Hong Kong will get fifty more years of this system right. They would not be immediately absorbed. It would not have to become communist or anything like that because that would have been just a completely radical change and Lord knows what it would have to have to send in the army if you wanted to do that. They get this agreement, but at the same time was there a culture of dissidents and exile Eddie Among Hongkongers? There was and I can. It's really I. Remember at midnight on that night. The People's liberation. Army rolling across the border into Hong. Kong and there was a feeling of dread and I think they came to the Prince of Wales Barracks that night right on Victoria Harbour. There was great concern. There's a history in Hong Kong of people coming there who are exiled from China certainty and the Cultural Revolution. People literally made rafts and floated down the river and swam to Hong Kong, but many of them have always had a second passport because Hong Kong always seemed a temporary place. Not You you neither East nor west and that night. My strongest memories was standing outside the Legislative Council building as China was taking back control, and there were the democratic legislators particularly Martin. Lee The godfather of Chinese democracy, avowing to do everything they could to keep Hong Kong free, and to continue to push for political representation inside Hong Kong for ordinary people and to resist the authoritarian regime that was essentially taking control of the city. There is a mix now. There are democratically elected lawmakers. Of course you, you have different factions have pro-beijing. pro-beijing people particularly, some of them may have a mainland background also are very much oriented towards the economy of China and see great advantage to integrating with China because the economy his so huge there now and then just recently, the Shenzhen economy surpassed the Hong Kong economy so Hong Kong no longer has the kind of leverage that had once had, and it's very dependent on the mainland in a way that was not. A twenty two years ago, there was more anxiety. I mean ninety seven was not even a decade after gentleman. was there anxiety having watched? What happened Hannemann with the hand of there was somebody else interesting I. Look back on what we wrote them as journalists, and at the time I felt like our coverage was maybe a little sensationalistic in the sense that we talked about the gloom and doom, but in fact the reality was nothing was going to change soon, and so even ten years on as I looked. Sometimes I would go back and look at my own writings and go. You know it was. It was a little over the top or a little too dark in terms of its approach. I now feel our coverage was right or maybe should have been even tougher because we've seen what's happened. and it's become very clear that this regime under Xi. Jinping cannot tolerate one country two systems. I WANNA spend one more moment on the night of Nineteen, ninety seven the handover. There's video archives of the last governor from the UK be candid back. The British flag looking really overcome with emotion..

Hong Kong is part of China and Hong Kong. People don't like aging. Well you guys. There's something wrong with you guys. So most of the mainland Chinese they really supports Beijing's position on Hong Kong. The thing is in the years after the handover more more mainland. Chinese people came to work in Hong Kong and the more that happened. The more Hong Kongers were like. Wow we are truly not the same. We've spent over a century living under different governments different economies and different cultures. And they mourn wanted to assert their own identity even more which frustrated China to no end and you also have the Chinese government and people in China increasingly fitting that autism Hong Kong.

After nine hundred thousand nine again you had half a million people marching in streaks Hong Kong to protest against the article. Twenty three naturally shoot.

Beijing's decision to have more say in control over Hong Kong's electoral system. Hundreds of thousands packed the streets of downtown Hong Kong as police fired as many as eighty seven cans of tear gas determine demonstrators shielding themselves with umbrellas and spawning the so-called umbrella and in the last three or four years you even have some of them beginning to talk about maybe we need to look at south determination because Hong Kong is a Chinese colony will never be allowed to have democracy and those words of self determination and independence caught the ears of Beijing. Red-light Fash Hoar Cross Beijing.

Hong Kong's young people to feel that they have no future that has really tricker this assistance from young people and at the same time. We also want to understand that. This trend has been increasing over time and it just fall from the sky. Now you're talking about a younger generation of people in Hong Kong who feel that they must now stand up and fight for the core values of Hong Kong.

Great Britain weren't doing so well so brin decided that in order to compete with China they needed to trade the Chinese something that would fly off the shelves.

I'm from Hong Kong gripping Hong Kong had demanded breath in Hong Kong So then I've been talking a lot about Hong Kong leads LE- back to the trade war. The opium that was coming into China was a problem because it was hurting their society and economic progress so they retaliated by confiscating over one thousand tons of opium. Britain was outraged and demanded that China pay for those drugs and the ruling power at this time. The Ching Empire refused and then that trigger the first opium and Britain invaded. China was the most powerful Empire East Asia but its military was still no match for Great Britain so after three years of fighting. China asked for a truce that was concluded by Detroit City of Nanjing in eighteen forty two. This is Steve Sang Professor Studies and Director of these source China Institute you at the School of Oriental and African Studies University of London. One of Britain's demands this peace treaty was for China to hand over one of its territories. The small little known undeveloped island called Hong Kong. It was a collection of a number of fishing villages a little bit of farming and also a place that pirates of the News as base for the publishing was very small. Maybe just several thousand people because of this the Ching Empire didn't consider the island all that important but the UK saw the benefits. Hong Kong Island had a natural harbor which offered the Western power a strong eastern trade base and also as kind of this gateway to the rest of Asia as row. Pitching Empire wasn't thrilled about handing anything over to Britain. But they figured if it had to be something it might as well be Hong Kong the Bris wanted to have a just a whole pile of barren rocks so whatever this pile of barren rocks was given to Britain in eighteen forty two which was the first of three handoffs slowly but surely gave the British all the tiny islands and surrounding territories that we know today as Hong Kong geography of the Hong Kong colony consists basically of three areas.

And what factors are they so Hong Kong's economy has been going through a year of tribulation. The trade will clearly hit on conches major industries and then on top of that we had the protests stoppage in June and have continued even to the present day peaking really in the last quarter if twenty-nine to clean November when violent clashes ended up with virtual siege of a couple of universities. Here including one quite close to where I live which caused the shutdown of one of the major tunnels running under Victoria Harbour for two weeks. Hong Kong's Economy Hong Kong itself was founded on free trade. So it's it's extremely dependent on the free movement of goods but also people a lot of local employment depends on tourism particularly visitors from the mainland and those visits have been dramatically curtailed by the protests. And they will be dramatically curtailed by the virus we saw back in November which is one of the worst months for the protests tests that the number of visitors to Hong Kong dropped by about fifty six percent. That's the worst drop since the size outbreak in two thousand and three many people Using his appointive comparison the current virus those industries in particular now face an even deeper winter to quote the Finance Secretary Pole Chen and and those have been damaged to sentiment. People feel less like going out for an evening at a bar or restaurant if they fail getting tig asked on the way home and that damage sentiment is often the most severe aspect of these sorts of troubles and quite often people can find a way around the supply cups. You can find it. Alternative road when alternative tip tunnel under the harbour if people don't feel like spending and is very digital businesses can do and so from from your perspective the protests and the hit two sentiment will continue so the damage to economic sentiment is clearly going to continue protests have been somewhat clips and transformed by the krona virus. People obviously less willing to cool Kohl for mass gatherings given the fears of contagion but sort of anger and distrust that the protests reflected continued. And it's taken a new form now. People don't think the Hong Kong government is doing enough to prevent transmission of the virus in particular. People are very angry that the border with mainland China has not been completely shut it. It has been restricted quite severely. But it hasn't been completely closed off an in addition they're angry because there's a shortage of surgical masks the evidence for the efficacy of mosques this is somewhat limited but nonetheless people seized on this as a measure they can take. Unfortunately there's been a shortage and you can see long queues. Even this lunchtime I went to a nearby by department store is a queue of over one hundred people waiting for mosques. Many people have been waiting so long. They'd taken a shopping baskets. Turn them upside down sitting on them for more comfortable comfortable weight and the GDP data out today. Don't even take into account the coming hit from the corona virus. What's your view on how that will add to the existing pressures so the current vice will make things worse? Some people have been hoping for recovery in the New Year because the protests seem to have simmered down a bit there was some evidence of people resuming normal life or that has now been dashed. The latest forecast I've seen for example. UBS Bank think that Hong Kong GDP could shrink by over six percent percent. This quarter compared with the first quarter of nineteen so an even deeper recession and Hong Kong economy might rebound once the virus contained. We've seen that in the past with things like saws that there's some pent-up demand so you do see a rebound but that's never enough to offset all the damage and obviously Hong Kong's economy is is is intimately tied to to that of the mainland. How has the the virus affected? The Chinese mainland economy so far so economic forecasts have been slashing their predictions for China's growth. I saw one prediction today that the virus would knock two percentage points off its growth in the first quarter of this year compared with the same quarter last year costs. Despite the warriors building over the past week or two that wasn't reflected in the stock markets which were closed for the Chinese New Year holiday until this morning and then we saw them tank by about nine percent. Wuhan is quite important. Auto manufacturing hub. The China of moral concern is the spread of the virus to other provinces. That are an even more important part of China's economy and of course you know the government has been quite Jacobean and imposing a quarantine measures that whatever. Their effectiveness in controlling virus will certainly have a fairly dramatic economic impact. Listen short short term. China does have this gold of which sets out years ago with doubling the size of its economy between ten and twenty twenty. It had seemed to be on track for that goal. The damage this virus might cause to grow share. Could put that golden doubt for that reason and others it may will try and goose economy towards the end of the year stimulate not to make up lost ground but again this is something that can for short the damage but not completely offset it so it seems that the economic pressures on in Hong Kong are are only going up here. I mean where. Where does Hong Kong go from? Here what do you see in the sort of medium and longer term so I think the inputting Hong Kong is to try and rebuild the relationship between the government and the governed unfortunately this crisis which could have brought people together seems to have only sewn divisions further. It's very important in a public health. Emergency government it has credibility the government has to make difficult calculations about to what extent to close off the border which would damage the economy toward extent. It's worth suffering that economic comic damage in order to control the virus and people here don't think those judgments being made in the interests of Hong Kong loan. They still think the Hong Kong government is doing the bidding of Beijing. Now that may or may not be true these judgments so as very difficult but we've seen for example people trying to disrupt the rail link between Hong Kong and the mainland throwing items onto the tracks. None of that is going to help the border question. For Hong Kong in global global economy terms the border future for Hong Kong in the eyes of international investors depends on it security and safety as a financial hub. There I I think the virus is a blessed concern. This isn't a homegrown problem. It's something that many parts of the world are facing and in Singapore has more confirmed cases of this virus than Hong Kong so whereas the protests reflected very much domestic weaknesses. The virus is obviously something that transcends Hong Kong and so I don't think it necessarily will further jeopardize its status as an international financial hub. Thank you very much time. Thank you my pleasure..

"The island of hong kong is just is to the south of where the main city of hong kong is right so over the next several decades over the next fifty years the u._k. Expands it's control of <hes> adjacent areas. They take over the kowloon peninsula in the kowloon bay. They take over. What's called the new territories this last area. The new territories territory's comprises a lot of modern hong kong but wait you might be saying didn't knoll just mention that this lasted lasted from eighteen forty one to nineteen ninety-seven what gives some of us may remember the events of nineteen ninety-seven in eighteen ninety gate way back in eighteen ninety eight when the u._k. Took control of these new territories. They didn't actually control them indefinitely gently. They leased them from the government of china for ninety nine years unusual ben. I this struck me as being a little bit a strange like putting a clock on it like that. It's such a long clock. It's weird you know. Property in general is a little bit. We are in this part of the world. <hes> frequently frequently people don't buy land. They lease it from the government. I was surprised and <hes> i was alive at this time on his surprise. When hong kong was given back quote unquote to to china on july first nineteen ninety seven. I had not heard of something something like this happening. But of course i was not an expert in the peaceful transition of power so i i don't know we'll get into it but there's certainly were caveats with that quote unquote giving back of hong kong to china correct yes yeah because as the date approached as july first nineteen ninety-seven approached both the government of mainland china and the united kingdom mm realized it would be cartoonish -ly difficult ni- impossible to separate the new territories from the rest of hong kong this had become one cohesive thing and that's when they said okay we have to make something work the way that hongkong along the u._k..

"Oh call has seen its biggest political crisis in decades the last ten weeks natasha khan is a hong kong correspondent for the wall street journal. I've been covering the pro democracy marcy movement in hong kong since two thousand fourteen and i've been covering the current round of protests since it started. There's an unlikely trigger for these protests a murder order in taiwan. There's a couple that was from hong kong that were traveling to thailand for a trip and the boyfriend and that couple had murdered his his girlfriend allegedly he fled back to hong kong and taiwanese authorities asked for him to be taken back because hong kong. They didn't have an extradition agreement with taiwan. Authorities began to really try to push through this proposed law which would allow for hong kong the people and other suspects to be extradited to china and other countries for trial. This proposed law was really contentious because china china has a more opaque judicial system and there were concerns about human rights abuses for people who are tried in that system people in hong kong were unhappy happy with this law for one particular reason it could let china reach into hong kong a semi autonomous region and apply chinese law there baz as more and more people in hong kong society started asking for the spill to be either delayed or withdrawn and there wasn't a response of the government momentum began to build for a giant giant protests essentially on june ninth which ended up drawing an estimated one million people on the streets. It was a hot day was humid and people were waiting. I mean seriously seven hours to just walk down the streets and to make the statement that they cared that maybe the government should rethink this bill. There are people in wheelchairs are grandmothers. There were people with their families families. There was a a really broad costs action holcombe there and what happened was that i think about an hour. After the march was officially declared don the government it didn't come out and address these one million people which represents like seventh of this population but they issued a press release. This press release acknowledged the protesters concerns but said in essence that the protesters simply misunderstood the bill it also said the extradition bill would continue to move through hong kong's legislative council on june twelve and so once again people in hong kong took to the streets on on june twelfth was very tense mood and in the mid to late afternoon. Police started clearing the protesters with quite a lot of force. You know they use a lot of tear gas rubber bullets which really caused a huge reaction society here that in turn led an estimated two million people to come out the next weekend the weekend after that and the the weekend after that protesters kept coming out they have shown up in malls in hospitals and this week they shut down the airport in the scenes beans. Were were one of solidarity. Many people took the day off from work to go and support and you had people just chanting throughout the whole day just chanting sitting on the airport arrival hall chancing for the government to listen to them. You know there's a term in cantonese which is language we speak in hong kong and it's called guy and means at oil and it's really kind of like a word of encouragement to say hey like i got your back. You know you can do it and and one of the biggest chance that you'll always see now like every few days when there's a protest as people people saying hongkongers at oil you know hung out and guy out. There are a lot of things adding oil to these protests the way the protesters are organizing online the way police are responding but the driving force underneath it all has to do with this extradition bill not the bill itself but what it could mean for hong kong hong kong's leader carrie. Lam said she would suspend the bill after those early protests but she hasn't withdrawn it entirely entirely it may seem like a pretty nuance difference but protesters are worried that lamb may be serving china's interests not hong kong's from the protesters point of view if you could do this one thing and you're still not doing it. Is it because china has said they're not going withdraw the bill. It feels like there's this attention between the hong kong government and china like you have said distrust right of the hong kong government that they aren't just puppets of beijing yes and and i think that that's something that didn't happen overnight. One.

"In recent weeks the streets of Hong Kong have been filled by not just the biggest demonstrations in recent memory but some of the largest gatherings of people in human history they began as protests against a proposed law which would enable extradition of suspected criminals from Hong Kong to mainland China this dispute over a technicality has escalated into a standoff between Beijing and the people of Hong Kong with the government of Hong Kong occupying being a distinctly uncomfortable position in between two clearly determined entities. There were always going to be tensions in the one China Two Systems setup agreed when Hong Kong once a British colony was returned to to China in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven but despite what Beijing may have wanted or imagined Hong Kong does not appear at all reconciled to its eventual absorption into China proper sheduled to occur by two thousand and forty seven indeed among the younger Hongkongers in particular a separate identity appears to be emerging one rooted at least in part in the idea of Hong Kong as a democracy so far at least China has taken a relatively restrained approach to the demonstrations as it did to what became known as the umbrella movement of two thousand fourteen but is China's patients infinite can Hong Kong be lewd or pushed towards compromise and does Hong Kong's songs government have any say in any of this anymore.

"I've been to Hong Kong by before off the hand off. So we have a lot of family history. I remember my dad saying a lot of other people saying that during the handover in nineteen ninety seven everyone expected the PR to come marching over the hills and take over every street corner in Hong Kong. So there is that sort of feeling especially in the west, as you know, just any minute, now it's all gonna be taken away, hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets of Hong Kong to protest a controversial proposed extradition, Bill, if passed by the territory's legislature, it would allow suspects to be sent to mainland China for trial or to any other country for that matter to use tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse crowds.
