Since the Hong Kong authorities cracked down on the protests of 2019-2020 and used the National Security Law to imprison political dissenters, Hong Kong has been under a new, stricter governance regime that increasingly resembles mainland China’s. New Chief Executive John Lee looks set to perpetuate this more authoritarian and securitized model of governance since coming into office in July 2022. Questions remain as to how the government will expand the National Security Law, when the territory’s COVID-19 controls will end and its economy recover, whether Hong Kong will lose its status as a global financial hub, and whether rule of law will survive under a politicized judiciary. Watch our expert panel address these and other questions and the implications for companies with interests in the region.
