The city is unique in regard to its politics and government, as China is only responsible for the foreign affairs and protection of Hong Kong, as a city of China. Hong Kong is therefore independent as such, as it maintains its own monetary system (Hong Kong Dollar), legal system, policies and police forces. The economy of the city is preserved through various ventures, such as the export and import markets, as the landscape is not rich in natural resources and doesn’t have a sustainable agricultural sector. It therefore concentrates on gross domestic product, manufacturing and services for income. Its economy is boosted by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, which is ranked fifth in the world and the city comes in third as a global financial center.

Hong Kong is has become a financial powerhouse and a force to be reckoned with. The economic stability and growing total GDPs, have secured the city as a destination filled with opportunity and an active tourist destination.
