ABSTRACT
This article focuses on economic and political risk in Hong Kong, China. Hong Kong's Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa has survived an opposition motion for him to quit over his handling of the SARS crisis. Tung has become increasingly unpopular, with many citing the reason as the government's poor leadership skills at a time of economic hardship. Tung was picked for a second term by the leaders in Beijing, and as Hong Kong's government is decidedly pro-Beijing in structure there is little chance of the opposition ousting him from power.
