In 1841 Hong Kong Island - not much more than 'a barren island with few houses' - was ceded to the British. In 1997 negotiations between Britain and China resulted in the handover of Hong Kong back to China. Under the credo 'one country, two systems', Hong Kong is now a Special Administrative Region (S.A.R.) of China.
