CHAPTER 66 - UNITED STATES-HONG KONG POLICY

-HEAD-

Sec. 5701. Findings and declarations

-STATUTE-

The Congress makes the following findings and declarations:

(1) The Congress recognizes that under the 1984 Sino-British

Joint Declaration:

(A) The People's Republic of China and the United Kingdom of

Great Britain and Northern Ireland have agreed that the

People's Republic of China will resume the exercise of

sovereignty over Hong Kong on July 1, 1997. Until that time,

the United Kingdom will be responsible for the administration

of Hong Kong.

(B) The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the

People's Republic of China, beginning on July 1, 1997, will

continue to enjoy a high degree of autonomy on all matters

other than defense and foreign affairs.

(C) There is provision for implementation of a "one country,

two systems" policy, under which Hong Kong will retain its

current lifestyle and legal, social, and economic systems until

at least the year 2047.

(D) The legislature of the Hong Kong Special Administrative

Region will be constituted by elections, and the provisions of

the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and

the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural

Rights, as applied to Hong Kong, shall remain in force.

(E) Provision is made for the continuation in force of

agreements implemented as of June 30, 1997, and for the ability

of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to conclude new

agreements either on its own or with the assistance of the

Government of the People's Republic of China.

(2) The Congress declares its wish to see full implementation

of the provisions of the Joint Declaration.

(3) The President has announced his support for the policies

and decisions reflected in the Joint Declaration.

(4) Hong Kong plays an important role in today's regional and

world economy. This role is reflected in strong economic,

cultural, and other ties with the United States that give the

United States a strong interest in the continued vitality,

prosperity, and stability of Hong Kong.

(5) Support for democratization is a fundamental principle of

United States foreign policy. As such, it naturally applies to

United States policy toward Hong Kong. This will remain equally

true after June 30, 1997.

(6) The human rights of the people of Hong Kong are of great

importance to the United States and are directly relevant to

United States interests in Hong Kong. A fully successful

transition in the exercise of sovereignty over Hong Kong must

safeguard human rights in and of themselves. Human rights also

serve as a basis for Hong Kong's continued economic prosperity.

Sec. 5711. Bilateral ties between United States and Hong Kong

-STATUTE-

It is the sense of the Congress that the following, which are

based in part on the relevant provisions of the Joint Declaration,

should be the policy of the United States with respect to its

bilateral relationship with Hong Kong:

(1) The United States should play an active role, before, on,

and after July 1, 1997, in maintaining Hong Kong's confidence and

prosperity, Hong Kong's role as an international financial

center, and the mutually beneficial ties between the people of

the United States and the people of Hong Kong.

(2) The United States should actively seek to establish and

expand direct bilateral ties and agreements with Hong Kong in

economic, trade, financial, monetary, aviation, shipping,

communications, tourism, cultural, sport, and other appropriate

areas.

(3) The United States should seek to maintain, after June 30,

1997, the United States consulate-general in Hong Kong, together

with other official and semi-official organizations, such as the

United States Information Agency American Library.

(4) The United States should invite Hong Kong to maintain,

after June 30, 1997, its official and semi-official missions in

the United States, such as the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office,

the Office of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, and the

Hong Kong Tourist Association. The United States should invite

Hong Kong to open and maintain other official or semi-official

missions to represent Hong Kong in those areas in which Hong Kong

is entitled to maintain relations on its own, including economic,

trade, financial, monetary, aviation, shipping, communications,

tourism, cultural, and sport areas.

(5) The United States should recognize passports and travel

documents issued after June 30, 1997, by the Hong Kong Special

Administrative Region.

(6) The resumption by the People's Republic of China of the

exercise of sovereignty over Hong Kong after June 30, 1997,

should not affect treatment of Hong Kong residents who apply for

visas to visit or reside permanently in the United States, so

long as such treatment is consistent with the Immigration and

Nationality Act [8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.].

(a) In general

Notwithstanding any change in the exercise of sovereignty over

Hong Kong, the laws of the United States shall continue to apply

with respect to Hong Kong, on and after July 1, 1997, in the same

manner as the laws of the United States were applied with respect

States, the Congress approves the continuation in force on and

before such date between the United States and the United Kingdom

and applied to Hong Kong, unless or until terminated in accordance

with law. If in carrying out this subchapter, the President

determines that Hong Kong is not legally competent to carry out its

obligations under any such treaty or other international agreement,

or that the continuation of Hong Kong's obligations or rights under

any such treaty or other international agreement is not appropriate

under the circumstances, such determination shall be reported to

the Congress in accordance with section 5731 of this title.

(a) Presidential determination

On or after July 1, 1997, whenever the President determines that

(b) Factor for consideration

In making a determination under subsection (a) of this section
