Is the Sino-British Joint Declaration dead? Two experts give their views
The question of whether the Sino-British Joint Declaration was dead was the topic of debate at a sold-out club lunch on August 29.
Guest speakers Alan Hoo, Chairman of The Basic Law Institute, and lecturer at CUHK’s Centre for China Studies, Tim Summers, gave their views on the relevance of the document, drawn up between Britain and China as part of an agreement to hand sovereignty back to China.
Both speakers also gave their take on the current protests gripping Hong Kong, and what they determined to be the next steps to resolving the crisis.
