I tediously kept probing but got nowhere apart from establishing that some posters interestingly did not seem to be able to be critical of any current government policy.

I focused on ASEAN because they limited FTAs to a few major partners. I totally ignored that FTAs are bilateral, so that I could solely place the blame on the HK government, which is the sole reason for joining the discussion to begin with. Since I had no concrete evidence to my claim besides some stats as to how many FTAs other regions possess, I just repeated that same claim for 40 pages and stuffed people's mouth. Meanwhile, I ignored any talk of Belt and Road because it's just so totally obvious that this initiative, which Hong Kong fully supports, is the total opposite of being inward looking.
    That's how I read it.

    You have been here long enough to know that it's a Geo tradition to go massively off topic after the first few pages.

    51 pages into this thread I am surprised frozen chapatis and see through kettles are not being discussed!
