摘要:

Hong Kong has undergone substantial economic transformations and developed into a sophisticated business and financial

center in the Asia-Pacific region, since the return of sovereignty to China as a Special Administrative Region under the One Country Two

Systems (OCTS) in 1997. This paper discusses and analyzes the industrial structural changes of Hong Kong in recent decades as well as

its future challenges and opportunities. The data and finding reveal that even though Hong Kong will face fierce competition from the

Mainland′s cities as the rise of China, the important role as a bridge between China and the rest of the world will brace Hong Kong itself

under the OCTS for developing into a service hub for business and trade in the Asia-Pacific region.
