To mark the 15th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to China, an exhibition is
being held at the National Museum in Beijing, showcasing Hong Kong's past,
present and future.

BEIJING, June 29 (Xinhuanet) -- With the successful implementation of the "One Country, Two Systems" principle and the strong support from the Central Government, Hong Kong continues to flourish economically. The city has maintained its position as one of the most competitive places in the world. To mark the 15th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to China, an exhibition is being held at the National Museum in Beijing, showcasing Hong Kong's past, present and future.

The big smiles and headlines on July 1st 1997, brings us back to that exciting moment 15 years ago. This exhibit shows the city's tremendous achievements in the past 15 years after the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. This exhibition is separated into five parts: the "one country, two systems", the cooperation between mainland and Hong Kong, achievements over the past 15 years, the latest developments and future plans.

After the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, Hong Kong set up several projects to help reconstruction. We also can't forget that during 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Hong Kong participated in organizing the Equestrian Events, which drew much attention worldwide. These are a few of things that have brought Hong Kong and mainland people closer over the years.

"This is a successful exhibition, it can help more mainland people to know more HK and can attract more mainland people to come to HK and of course can celebrate our 15th anniversary with mainland people."
Over the past 15 years, Hong Kong has experienced its ups and down. Enduring the SARS epidemic, avian flu, and the impact of the global financial crisis would have been more difficult without support from the central government. Through this exhibition, people on the mainland can get a better understanding of Hong Kong.

One visitor said, "All Chinese people are concerned about the development of Hong Kong. We're happy and proud to see its achievements. If there's a chance in the future I really want to go to Hong Kong to have a look."

Another visitor said, "After seeing the exhibition, I got a better understanding of Hong Kong's developments. The city's technology attracts me most. I hope Hong Kong can keep its own characteristics and continue to develop."

The country's 12th Five-Year Plan dedicated a section for the first time, to Hong Kong and Macao. It elaborates on the significant functions and positioning of Hong Kong in the country's development strategy. To follow the theme of the exhibition, all are hoping that Hong Kong moves towards a better tomorrow.
