Location: Lying along the south east coast of China, at the mouth of Canton River, Hong Kong comprises Hong Kong island, Kowloon Peninsula, the New Territories and over 230 small islands. Hong Kong became a British colony in 1843. The new Territories were acquired by Britain in 1898 by lease for 99 years. By an agreement reached in 1984, China recovered sovereignty over Hong Kong in July 1997.
History: Hong Kong became a Special Administrative Region of China on July 1, 1997 when the colony was handed over by Britain, which ruled it for 156 years.
The population is almost entirely Chinese with a sprinkling of other nationalities. It is one of the world's greatest transshipment ports.
