Hong Kong was established as a British colony in 1841 and under the terms of the Joint Declaration of the British and Chinese governments of 1984, reverted to Chinese sovereignty on 1 July 1997. At that time, Hong Kong became a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China retaining its current political, social, commercial and legal system for a minimum period of 50 years after 1 July 1997. Since the handover, Hong Kong has continued to run its own affairs with complete autonomy.
