China uses the constitutional principle ‘one-country, two systems’ to govern the special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau
Chinese President Xi Jinping said the “one country, two systems” policy proved to be the best institutional mechanism for Hong Kong and Macau and should be adhered to in the long run.
Speaking at the opening session of the 20th Congress of the ruling Communist party in China on Sunday, October 16, Jinping said the regions will enjoy high autonomy and be administered by patriots.
“(We must) implement the principles of ‘one country, two systems', ‘Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong’, ‘Macau people administering Macau’,” Jinping said at the once-in-five-year Communist Party congress which was attended by around 2,300 delegates at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.
