"“One country, two systems” of course includes the principles of “one country” and “two systems”. On the principle of “one country”, there needs to be a bottom line in law, and the National Security Law can be construed as one of those legal bottom lines."

"National security is highly regarded in China, and there is the concept known as “holistic approach to national security”.  The National Security Law in Hong Kong deals with national security in four aspects, including secession, subversion, collusion to endanger national security and terrorist activities. The National Security Law oversees these four issues pertaining to national security."

"Hong Kong’s National Security Law is highly significant as it serves as "the law to safeguard Hong Kong”. It has effectively deterred foreign intervention, collusion with disrupters harming the interest of China and Hong Kong, interference with Hong Kong affairs and activities endangering national security. The National Security Law ensures the steadfast implementation of “one country, two systems”, and safeguards Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability in the long term.  Supporting the National Security Law means guarding Hong Kong’s unique position and success edges, and embracing the city’s key opportunities for development. With the smooth implementation of the National Security Law and the improved electoral system in the HKSAR, Hong Kong definitely has a brighter and better future."

"Drafting Hong Kong arbitration clauses offers parties contracting with PRC entities anywhere in the world unique protections, not available if other jurisdictions are selected. Foremost is asset protection/freezing in the PRC, available only where parties have pre-nominated Hong Kong arbitration by one of the qualifying institutions . Gone are the days, therefore, where Belt and Road countries should tell their citizens “ let investors arbitrate here”. That asset protection is thereby lost.

On infrastructure projects, parties should also consider expressly nominating Hong Kong law, both as the contract’s governing law and separately of its arbitration agreement. They will save them time and cost, in not having to produce independent expert reports on foreign laws and subjecting those experts to cross-examination. More significantly, Hong Kong law has developed cutting-edge answers to many of the construction industry’s conundra over, for example; the occurrence of defects; giving of contractual notices; parties’ specific intent overriding the document precedence clause; the relationship of project completion to outstanding work; record-keeping."
