Hong Kong has had a very interesting history with it being under ownership of the British under a 99-year lease that was to help destroy the opium trade and reinforce British defences. However during World War 2, the Japanese invaded which resulted in the British defences to flee but soon after when the Japanese announced its unconditional surrender, the British came back into rule. In 1997 the lease was up and the land was surrendered back to China. With the diverse history and hub and various cultures, Hong Kong is extremely multicultural. The population dense country is home to 7.2 million and was said to have a GDP of $351.1 billion which is up 3.6% from 5 years prior. Due to Hong Kong’s diverse and rich history the is a great mix of races and religions but the main ones are Buddhism and Christianity. Majority of employment is taken up by the printing and publishing industry followed by the food and beverage.
