Denise Ho joins ChinaFile conversation on Hong Kong’s Economic Future

March 12, 2021

Assistant Professor of History Denise Ho participated in an online forum on Hong Kong’s economic future, a publication of the ChinaFile website.  Contributors were asked to respond to the seeming paradox between Hong Kong’s new National Security Law—which critics suggested would cause the withdrawal of international capital—and estimates for Hong Kong’s economy to recover significantly in 2021.  Ho argues that the strength of Hong Kong economic future rests on its human capital, from its ability to educate global talent to its historic attraction and integration of migrants.  Related to this topic, Professor Ho offers a departmental seminar for undergraduates, entitled “Hong Kong and China: A Cross-Border History.”
