A Bridge Between East and West: The Universities Service Centre of the Chinese University of Hong Kong

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  28 February 2019

Extract

Fragrant Harbor is the literal translation of the Chinese (pinyin Xiang Gang) for Hong Kong. Once a British colony and now a Special Administrative Region within the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong is also a global financial center. In June 2006 I had the privilege of conducting legal research as a visiting scholar at the Universities Service Centre of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. My research topic was the influence of Hong Kong banking law on banking reform in the People's Republic of China. The following is a brief summary of my research and experience there.

4 The views from the building over Victoria Harbor are impressive. However, on the day that I visited the HKMA library, there was a black umbrella storm in progress so there were no views to be had. In Hong Kong, storms are rated by colored umbrellas – black umbrellas are the worst and schools and businesses often close during those storms. I admired the views from the building later when I returned to conduct interviews of HKMA officials.Google Scholar
