High speed railway to contribute to Hong Kong, regional development — Interview

Hong Kong's first high-speed rail line opens this weekend - CMW

Hong Kong's first high-speed rail line opens this weekend - CMW

The Hong Kong Express Rail Link, also known as the Vibrant Express, will travel through 44 stations across China's high-speed rail network including Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing. It's similar, they also say, to arrangements that exist between the United States and Canada, where travelers go through immigration in places like the Montreal airport before flying onto NY, according to promotional information on the rail line.

A HKMA spokeswoman said market participants viewed the elevated interbank interest rates as a contributing factor to the latest strengthening of the Hong Kong dollar. "Hong Kong is going to be put like a little ant into a box".

The Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link (XRL), which is set to start operation on Sunday, will connect Hong Kong with high-speed railways on the Chinese mainland and promote regional development, according to a mainland official. Some Hong Kong legal scholars say the "co-location arrangement", is unconstitutional. USA agents in Canada, for example, are not permitted to interrogate or arrest a traveler at their own discretion under Canada's Pre-clearance Act of 2016.

When Lu went to negotiate the rail connection in 1978, many people thought it was unimaginable to have a through train between the socialist Chinese mainland and capitalist Hong Kong. In China, a suspect can be detained for up to 37 days without being arrested, after which time they may wait months before being formally charged. It also means Bejing, which would normally take around a full day to reach from Hong Kong, can be reached in around nine hours.

In the return direction it is expected to depart at 1000 from Beijing West to arrive Hong Kong 1858. "The Basic Law (Hong Kong's mini-constitution) does not have an expiry date of 2047".

"Now what ever happened to "one country, two systems"?".

"I hope all will be able to experience its convenience, including those who are anxious about the opening of the high-speed railway and the implementation of the co-location arrangement", he said.

Hong Kong's first bullet train glides out of a sleek harborfront railway station bound for mainland China on Saturday, launching a new era of integration and raising fears for some for the territory's cherished freedoms.

It is an important innovation that also may point the way for more innovative cooperation between the Chinese mainland and the Hong Kong and Macao SARs, Zhang said. "And this is just not right", she added.

But the caveat is that one is subject to Chinese laws after entering West Kowloon's Mainland Port Area, even though this is not physically in the mainland.
