Hong Kong was under the British rule for a long time and it was only in the year 1841 that it was ceded into China. But later on in the year 1997 Hong Kong was given a separate autonomy as Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Hong Kong lies between China and the South China Sea and is at least six times the size of Washington DC.

The hilly mountains and lowlands, the climate of Hong Kong enjoys the tropical monsoon season. The winter is usually humid and cold, and the spring to summer has the combination of heat and rains. It has more than 200 islands under its geographical territory and is often affected by the typhoons. Yet, it is vibrant and colorful with its cross cultural and diverse citizens. Though 90% of the people are of local religions, yet it has adapted other cultures with equal ease. But the main concern that it faces right now is rapid urbanization, which is leading to massive air and water pollution. Marine dumping is also a big issue, for which several environmental organizations are working closely.

The economy of the country is based on free market and international trade. Since, its natural resources are of limited volume; hence a great deal of money is spent on import, making it an expensive city. Though it suffered economically during 1989 to 1997 due to the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the Asian financial upheaval in 1998 and later on in 2001-02, yet it has grown stupendously in the years 2003 and 2004. The trade with China and tourism boom is the major driving force behind this growth factor. The major agricultural product it deals with is vegetables, fish and pork. The industries that are predominant in the economy are clothing, tourism, shipping, electronics, toys, watches and banking.
