The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has adapted many of the British laws passed down from their rule and HKSAR came into being after the Handover in 1997. It continues to be a capitalist society with legislative and judicial laws separated from those of the People's Republic of China.

Hong Kong is considered an inalienable part of the People's Republic of China, meaning that it serves as a separate independent region. Fundamental rights and freedoms are also safeguarded for the residents of Hong Kong in accordance to Article 31 of the Constitution from the People's Republic of China. Along with other members of legislature, the chief executive of Hong Kong is appointed by citizens of Hong Kong every five years. As agreed by the Chinese government of an unchanged society of 50 years, Hong Kong runs under the law of one country, two systems. Currently the Chief Executive of Hong Kong is Mr. Donald Tsang Yam-Kuen.
