HONG KONG — No place in the world is caught more between Eastern and Western culture than Hong Kong and it continues to hold a special place in the global economy.
For most of the past two centuries, this tiny territory served as a British trading colony and a window into its northern neighbor. Now that China, which controls Hong Kong and has historically been closed to Westerners and their ideas, is increasingly integrating itself into the world economy, the question on the mind of many observers is whether Hong Kong will lose its place as a business hub.
