WASHINGTON, May 26, 2020 — "Hong Kong has long been an important city for US businesses operating in the Asia-Pacific region.
“Hong Kong's commitment to free trade and strong legal protections have helped it become an attractive investment destination and international business hub.
“The US-China Business Council (USCBC) is concerned that proposed legislative actions could undermine Hong Kong's special economic status and the conditions that we believe have served China and the region so well over the decades.
“USCBC urges all leaders to take those steps necessary to de-escalate tensions, promote economic recovery and the rule of law, and preserve the “one country, two systems” principle."
