U.S. policy toward Hong Kong is stated in the U.S.-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992 and grounded in the determination to promote Hong Kong’s prosperity, autonomy, and way of life. In 1993, annually from 1995 through 2007, and in 2015 and 2016, the Department of State submitted reports to Congress, pursuant to the Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992, as amended (the Act). These reports responded to the requirement in Senate Report No. 114–79, accompanying S. 1725, the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2016. In June 2017, the State Department also issued a Fact Sheet reviewing key developments in Hong Kong.
