China seals Hong Kong’s failed-state fate

Article 23 is final confirmation of China’s shocking breach of faith with Britain. Beijing solemnly pledged, 40 years ago, to respect Hong Kong’s autonomy.

China’s post-pandemic economic slump, exacerbated by Xi’s private sector squeeze, is adding to Hong Kong’s woes. 

The stock market has lost nearly half its value in three years. 

The property sector is in crisis, besieged by debt and raised interest rates. For many in Asia, Singapore is the new business destination of choice.
