July 1, 2022 is the 25th anniversary of the return of Hong Kong.
Before this happy day, Agence France Presse posted an article, saying that after the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return, the proportion of GDP in Chinese Mainland has fallen from 18% to 3%, and the future is uncertain, suggesting that Hong Kong’s economy continues to decline after the return.
What does that mean? What do you mean by saying this on the big day?
The proportion of Hong Kong’s GDP in Chinese Mainland fell from 18% to 3%. How does it mean that the future of Hong Kong’s economy is uncertain? How can we draw the conclusion that Hong Kong’s economy is in recession after its return?
First, find the data.
In 1997, the GDP of Chinese Mainland was US $961.6 billion and that of Hong Kong was US $177.4 billion, accounting for 17.8% of the mainland.
In 2021, the GDP of Chinese Mainland was US $17.7 trillion, an increase of 18.43 times compared with that in 1997. The GDP of Hong Kong was US $368billion, an increase of 2.07 times compared with that in 1997. Hong Kong accounted for 2.07% of the mainland.
Therefore, the data of Agence France Presse is basically correct, and there is no big problem.
But the conclusion is very problematic.
In the past 25 years, the economic growth rate of Hong Kong is far lower than that of Chinese Mainland, which is a fact.
But you are not very good in France.
In 1997, the GDP of France was $1.45 trillion.
In 2021, the GDP of France was $2.93 trillion.
The data of 2021 is 2.02 times that of 1997, and the economic growth rate is lower than that of Hong Kong.
Not to mention that there are always bad people in Hong Kong who interfere, provoke a gang of thugs to do things, and deliberately drag down the economy, which is better than France.
If Hong Kong’s economic future is uncertain, what is France’s low economic growth rate?
How about jumping on the street?
France, before you say that Hong Kong’s economy is bad, did you look in a mirror to see your virtue?
What is the root cause of Hong Kong’s economic decline?
There is no answer to this question, because first of all, Hong Kong has never declined.
Hong Kong’s economic growth rate is not as fast as that of the mainland, which means decline?
Funny, why can we draw this conclusion? Why can’t we compare with the mainland and Europe and the United States?
Over the past 30 years, Hong Kong’s GDP trend chart is like this.
Doesn’t look good?
Look at the French ones.
The GDP trend of France in recent 30 years is like this.
The whole stagnated, the currency continued to depreciate year by year, but the GDP did not rise for more than a decade, the wages did not move, and the people became poorer day by day.
Don’t want to see France?
Look at Britain.
The GDP trend chart of Britain in recent 30 years is like this.
It’s more garbage than France.
Is it not enough that Hong Kong is stronger than France and Britain?
Why must we compete with Xueba China? Is Britain and France an advanced country or is China an advanced country? Who do you French media want Hong Kong to follow and move closer to?
And Japan, even worse.
Over the past 30 years, Japan’s GDP trend chart is like this.
It’s terrible, and I’ve been standing still for 30 years.
Japanese college student workers in 1997
The salary of Japanese college students is exactly the same as that of 2021, but the purchasing power of money has depreciated madly.
Over the same period, the wages of Chinese people have increased dozens of times.
As long as Hong Kong’s economy is not compared with that of Chinese Mainland, and compared with that of any country in Europe and the United States, the economic growth performance of Hong Kong in these 25 years is excellent.
Behind this, we cannot do without the support of Chinese Mainland.
If the mainland had not helped Hong Kong in recent decades, the growth rate of Hong Kong would have been worse than that of Britain.
If Hong Kong is mixed with Britain and takes Britain as the leader, the economic growth rate will inevitably be lower than that of Britain.
If you look at the economic growth rate of Britain in the past 30 years, you will know how miserable Hong Kong will be if Britain takes the lead.
Now Hong Kong is much better than Britain. Why?
Because China is a country that can ride the dust.
In the past 30 years, China’s GDP has directly increased from a fraction of that of the EU to about the same as that of the EU as a whole.
The economy of the whole EU has stalled, all in place, and only China is soaring.
In the 13 years from 2008 to 2020, the total GDP of the world has increased from US $64 trillion to US $84.75 trillion, with a cake increment of 20.75 trillion.
Among them, the U.S. GDP increased from 14.7 trillion to 20.95 trillion, with a cake increment of 6.25 trillion.
China’s GDP increased from 4.6 trillion to 14.7 trillion, with a cake increment of 10.1 trillion.
The total increment of China US cake is 16.3 trillion, about 80% of the world’s incremental cake.
In other words, China and the United States have eaten all the new cakes in the world in the past 13 years, accounting for 80% of the total.
In these 13 years, there are only three countries in the world, China, the United States, and other countries.
In the 80% incremental cake eaten by Sino American cooperation, China eats nearly twice as much as the United States.
The world has a total of 20 trillion incremental cakes, of which China alone eats 10.1 trillion, accounting for half of the world, and is the world’s largest economic engine.
Never mind how China ate so many cakes, anyway.
Hong Kong, Britain, France, Japan, South Korea and other more than 200 countries, together, eat that little bit of fragmentary, can not the economic growth be miserable.
Therefore, the economic growth rate of Hong Kong is not as fast as that of Chinese Mainland, which cannot represent that Hong Kong is weak, but that Chinese Mainland is strong.
However, the economic growth rate of Hong Kong is stronger than that of France and Britain. What does this mean?
This can only show that the economies of France and Britain are too weak and their future is uncertain.
Return the original words to France. If you are interested, you can also bring a message to Britain.
What have you been doing for more than ten years?
Every day the yellow vest riots, every day like a demon, engage in those extreme animal protection and environmental protection, always sit in front of someone else’s hamburger shop naked, and force others to eat vegetarian. ALSTOM, its core technology enterprise, was split by the United States, regardless. Every day, it rioted for several sleeping snakes, forcing the factory to shut down.
Can you, a group of European and American countries, do something serious day by day? What’s the rotten state of our economy? Don’t you see?
It’s really cheeky to say that Hong Kong’s economy is bad.
It’s annoying to pick the 25th anniversary of our return to trouble.
