WHAT DOES HK MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hk

Hong Kong

Hong Kong, alternatively known by its initials H.K., is a city-state and is a Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, enclosed by the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea.[8] Hong Kong is known for its expansive skyline and deep natural harbour, and with a land mass of 1,104 km2 and a population of over seven million people, is one of the most densely populated areas in the world.[9] Hong Kong's population is 93.6% ethnic Chinese and 6.4% from other groups.[4] Hong Kong's Cantonese-speaking majority originate mainly from the neighbouring Canton province,[10] from which many of them fled to escape wars and Communist rule in China from the 1930s to the 1960s.[11][12][13][14] Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the First Opium War. Hong Kong Island was first ceded to the UK in perpetuity, followed by Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 and then the New Territories was put under lease in 1898. It was occupied by Japan during the Pacific War, after which the British resumed control until 1997, when China resumed sovereignty.
