A former British Crown Colony HONG KONG in south east Asia, leased by China to
GREAT BRITAIN (U.K.) in 1898 for a period of 99 years. A most important port and trade
center in the Far-East. Light manufacturing and tourism are main factors in its economy.
Hong Kong became the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) of
CHINA, PEOPLE'S REP. on 1 July 1997.
By agreement, China has promised that, under its 'one country, two systems' formula,
China's socialist economic system will not be practiced in Hong Kong and that Hong
Kong will enjoy a high degree of autonomy for the next 50 years. The new stamps have
Hong Kong traditional design. Annual output about 70.
