The remaking of Hong Kong

Saturday 20 March 2010, 6.00pm HKT

“It is the intangibles, almost invisible to non-Chinese residents and to visitors, that are making a new Hong Kong. It is a more docile, less assertive city. The innate sense of superiority over any and every Chinese mainlander has almost completely evaporated; Ah Chaan, the name of a country bumpkin created by television to represent the average mainlander has been scrubbed from everyday language, if not from memory.”
