香港國際金融中心地位對中美極重要

中國近年宣傳上海可以代替香港地位,並不確實,真相係:香港國際金融中心地位對中國非常重要,對亞太區非常重要,對世界非常重要,所以對美國非常重要,事關香港係中國的大動脈。

金融市場講求合約精神。各式各樣金融產品,包括最普通的股票債券,都係一份合約。倘無法治,此等合約就如廢紙。所以金融中心只可能發展於擁有健全法律系統的地方。可見未來,中國法律難以同國際接軌。

香港監察成員國際化

香港監察的五位贊助人為英國議員,未來將有其他國家議員加入。香港監察的信託人除了英國人之外,亦包括加拿大和德國人。BNO護照平權並非香港監察工作範圍,然而有鑑於許多香港人關心此事,香港監察經已報告英國議員,以及向英聯邦其他國家提及。現在揸BNO護照的香港人大約有十七萬,可直接向英國政府爭取平權。由於部分英籍香港人效忠中共,故此由 BNO護照轉變成BC護照應該有審查過程。

 

香港日益成為國際關注焦點

今日十一月六號,聯合國人權理事會討論中國人權問題,多個大國代表起身提香港人權問題,是為有史以來第一次,石破天驚。美國華盛頓精英近來亦好多人對中國有興趣,包括香港議題。十一月中美中經濟及安全審議委員會(US-China Economic and Security Review Commission)將發表報告詳述香港人權,舊年的報告經已有近四十頁敘述香港情況,甚至提及香港本土派、港獨派,以及民選議員梁頌恆遊蕙禎,被控在立法會內非法集結。委員會成員包括美國議員十幾人,報告會影響美國保留或取消香港政策法。此外,美國國會行政當局中國事務委員會(CECC)本年雙十節發表報告,其中扼要敍述香港人權受損情況。CECC主席共和黨參議員Marco Rubio去年提出香港人權民主法案。

In an interview with Local Press, Ms Calverley, a trustee of the London-based Hong Kong Watch, stresses the importance of Hong Kong to China as an international financial centre. Ms Calverley said: “Hong Kong is still very important to China, because RMB cannot be freely exchanged internationally. China has to rely on Hong Kong for international IPO, off-shore RMB business, and other financial transactions.”

She continued: “As an international financial center, Hong Kong’s accounting practice is globally recognized while this is not the case with China. Financial transactions are contracts. Contractual commitment has to be protected by the Rule of Law. China is country ruled by China laws, not the Rule of Law. The Rule of Law is the foundation of an international financial Centre.”

“Because Hong Kong is important to China, Hong Kong is important to the USA, for Hong Kong is the aorta of China. This means that Hong Kong is increasingly the focus of international attention.

“We see this today (6 November), at the UN Human Rights Council, where quite a few leading countries will stand up and speak out for Hong Kong human rights, which is unprecedented: in the last UN human rights review, no member states made recommendations to the government of Hong Kong.

“China is a hot topic in Washington D.C where people are increasingly interested in Hong Kong.

“In mid-November, the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission will publish a detailed report about HK human rights which scrutinises whether Hong Kong’s human rights situation continues to justify its special treatment under the Hong Kong Policy Act. And last year, Senator Marco Rubio, Chair of Congressional Executive Committee on China, put forward the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act.

“Hong Kong Watch is a charity registered in London, dedicated to researching threats to HK Basic Law, rule of law, human rights and freedom. It liaises with not only the UK government officials and lawmakers, but also the USA, Germany, Canada, EU, and other nations, to inform, advise and develop worldwide advocacy for Hong Kong’s freedoms, the rule of law and autonomy.”
