Celebrating HKSAR's coming of age

According to Chinese tradition, a man enters adulthood at the age of 20. So today, we are celebrating the coming of age of the HKSAR, which has grown exuberantly like a bamboo or a pine tree.

Since its return to the motherland, Hong Kong has kept its distinct features and strengths. Its allure of being a vibrant metropolis where the East meets the West remains as strong as ever.
