From Occupy to Election: Hong Kong’s political situation and what lies ahead

Hong Kong has seen a transformation in its political and social landscape since Occupy Central in 2014. How will Hong Kong’s political stakeholders and the newly-elected LegCo members position the city in the new political era?

This month, our experts give voice on their views about:

  • Can Hong Kong be governable regardless of who the chief executive is?
  • How will grassroots leaders and their newly created political parties address the city’s societal issues?
  • How widening political divides hurt the city’s economic prospects and credit ratings, making Hong Kong less competitive?
