Hong Kong

Officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China;  this territory is the world’s 4th most densely populated region.  In 1842 Hong Kong became a British colony.  During the 2nd World War Hong Kong was occupied by Japan but British control resumed in 1945.  After negotiations in the 1980’s, Hong Kong became a special administrative region of China in 1997 with a high degree of autonomy.  It has a separate political and economic system from that of China.  It is one of the most significant financial centres in the world today and is the country with the world’s longest life expectancy.

As a British colony, Hong Kong produced stamps with the face of the reigning monarchs of the United Kingdom and printed Hong Kong.  After 1997, stamps have been issued with the name Hong Kong, China.  The older British Hong Kong stamps are no longer valid.
