Video-sharing social networking service, TikTok, said yesterday that it will pull out of Hong Kong because of the newly introduced national security law. The company, which is owned by Beijing-based internet company ByteDance, said it will be difficult to protect its data from being shared with the Chinese government under the new law. Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said on Tuesday that the recent surge in the stock market shows people appreciate the newly enacted national security law. Speaking ahead of the weekly Executive Council meeting, she dismissed what she called unfounded allegations that the law signals the death of One Country Two Systems. On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Stewart Aldcroft, Chairman of CitiTrust and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood in Washington, D.C.
