Since its return to mainland China in 1997, Hong Kong has gained a reputation as a gateway to China for overseas investment and businesses. On September 22, the Brookings Institution Center for Northeast Asia Policy Studies, in cooperation with the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, held an event to discuss Hong Kong’s changing role in shaping U.S.-China economic relations.
C.Y. Leung of the Executive Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region gave remarks during the event. Richard Bush and Carnegie's Douglas Paal moderated the discussion that followed.
