    What will happen in Hong Kong on 1 July 2047?

    One Country and Two Systems will end on 1st July 2047, what are your expectations?

    Will Hong Kong still be a prime location, or would China completely surpass it. Will China and Hong Kong merge closer in the next thirty years? Will Hong Kong be independent before this date? Will there be a war or major conflict before this date?

    What are your thoughts and please explain them.

    No

    would China completely surpass it?
    It has already surpassed

    Will China and Hong Kong merge closer in the next thirty years?
    Yes, till eventually the S.A.R. system vanish

    Will Hong Kong be independent before this date?
    Not in a million years

    Will there be a war or major conflict before this date?
    Not likely, unless either N. Korea or Philippines leader loses it

    I agree with what is said above. I don't think the SAR system will vanish though. Too much money funneling in and out. The leaders need a place to hide their cash.

    No matter what happens, it won't be overnight - HK will be slowly "naturalized" until she is indiscernable from her neighbor Shenzhen.

    The good news is that Shenzhen is no longer just the destination for cheap massages, tailors and counterfeit goods. It's one of China's most prosperous and modern SEZ's -with all the new malls and residential buildings popping up, it really does feel like Hong Kong sometimes.

    Meanwhile HK will slowly stagnate, as its traditional role as China's link to the West fades and it's status as a regional banking/financial services hub is lost to Singapore and Shanghai. Hong Kong does not want to integrate with the Mainland but it does not innovate to keep itself up to par with the rest of the world and unfortunately we will see the results of this soon enough.
