Show Summary Details


Governing Hong Kong is not easy. Aside from the problems surrounding the relationship between the government and the people, Hong Kong also faces constitutional, organisational, and policy issues which affect the way the public sector works. This concluding chapter traces back the issues surrounding the Hong Kong government in order to acquire a better understanding of how these issues arose and to predict solutions that might resolve these issues. In this chapter, the issues on the transition of Hong Kong, the values of post-1997 government, the disarticulated system, and legitimacy are discussed. In addition, the chapter provides suggestions for improving the administrative and policy making processes of Hong Kong.
