“Some people in the U.S. have indeed gone too far by engaging in yet another round of bullying,’’ Zhang Xiaoming, deputy head of the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council, told a news conference.

Zhang said that the special economic status of the HKSAR, including its standing as a global financial hub, has been earned through decades of hard work by generations of people in Hong Kong.

According to him, such a status is recognised by the world and is also underpinned by the HKSAR Basic Law.

“The HKSAR’s long-term prosperity and stability are dependent on its comparative advantages in business environment and financial system.

“Also on the momentum of the mainland’s economic development and the central authorities’ support.

“We are full of confidence in Hong Kong’s future,’’ Zhang said.
