Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after Qing China ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War, and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The territory was returned to China when the lease expired in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China. and its people overwhelmingly identify as Hongkongers rather than Chinese.

Originally a sparsely populated area of farming and fishing villages, the territory has become one of the world’s most significant financial centres and commercial ports.It is the world’s seventh-largest trading entity, and its legal tender (the Hong Kong dollar) is the world’s 13th-most traded currency. Although the city has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world, it faces severe income inequality and hosts the largest concentration of ultra high-net-worth individuals of any city in the world.
