We had in those days, before 1997, a brain-drain and capital outflow, but in the past month or so, since the central authorities made this intention known to legislate against national security and threats, we have seen nothing of the sort. Society is very stable. Our economy, despite COVID-19, is doing okay. The real estate market is very strong and so is the stock market."

So I believe, and I definitely still hope so, that the Americans will take into account their interests in Hong Kong too."

There's nothing in the joint declaration, and by extension, there is nothing in the Basic Law that doesn't allow the Chinese government to enact and for the Hong Kong government to implement such law."

Storyline


U.S. revocation of Hong Kong's special status is a usual scare-mongering tactic and is against its own interests, said former Chief Executive of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Leung Chun-ying during a Tuesday interview with China Global Television Network (CGTN).

The U.S. Commerce Department has announced the decision to suspend preferential trade treatment to Hong Kong, including the availability of export license exceptions, under the pretext of a national security legislation in Hong Kong.

Leung called this a "usual scare-mongering tactic". According to Leung, he was involved in the entire transition when Hong Kong was handed back to its motherland. He said back then, Hong Kong had a "brain drain" and capital flow.

"In the past month or so, since the central authorities made this intention known to legislate against national security threats, we have seen nothing of the sort. Society is very stable. Our economy, despite COVID-19, is doing okay. The real estate market is very strong and so is the stock market," he said.

Leung added that the U.S. is likely to suffer from a backfire as its economic interests are somewhat intertwined with that of Hong Kong.

"In terms of what the American government has announced so far, I don't think it will effect Hong Kong. The American government knows full well that we are one of their best trading partners in the sense that we provide a huge amount of trade surplus to American exporters to Hong Kong, and they have a large business presence in Hong Kong. So I believe, and I definitely still hope so, that the Americans will take into account their interests in Hong Kong too," said Leung.

Refuting groundless accusations that the national security legislation is in breach of the Sino-British Joint Declaration, Leung challenged the accusers to provide evidence.

"I challenge people who claim that the national security law legislation is in breach of the (Sino-British) Joint Declaration to actually point out which article of the joint declaration has been breached by the Chinese government's moves. You can look at the article one by one, it's not a long document, it's really easy to read and understand. There's nothing in the joint declaration, and by extension, there is nothing in the Basic Law that doesn't allow the Chinese government to enact and for the Hong Kong government to implement such law," said Leung.
