Friday will be the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong SAR, and it will mark the halfway point of the promised 50 years without change under the One Country, Two Systems principle.
Security has been beefed up as President Xi Jinping is expected to begin a two-day visit to Hong Kong today (Thursday) for celebrations marking the SAR’s return to the mainland.
So, at this halfway point, how has One Country Two System been working so far? How will it develop going forward? And will it last well beyond the initial 50-year timeframe?
After 9.15am, we’ll be speaking to the Chief Executive Officer of the CUHK Medical Centre to look at what lessons Hong Kong can learn from the Covid-19 pandemic.

On Thursday's Backchat: International travel amid Covid; and Water World.
As we are stepping into 19 months of the pandemic, the collapse in travel demand and the closure of borders have hit the aviation and tourism industry worldwide.
Hong Kong’s flagship airline Cathay Pacific said it expects to see only 13% of its pre-pandemic activity, with the company earlier recorded more than HK$7.5 billion loss for the first half of 2021.
Meanwhile, the US is easing its travel restrictions, reopening to visitors from the UK, EU and other nations. Can we do the same? How and when should we reopen international travel?
In Hong Kong, social distancing rules are extended until September 29 despite a relatively low infection rate here. Why?
After 9:15am, we’re looking at the Water World as it opens on Tuesday September 21. How’s it going?
