Hong Kong continues to have high autonomy in the running of its affairs under a 'one country, two systems' concept. Hong Kong remains a relative powerhouse in world trade and, with a comparatively small population of more than 7 million, is one of the top twenty trading economies, the world's third largest financial centre, and vies with Singapore as the largest container port in terms of volume. Hong Kong remains the most significant gateway into Southern China.
