Even with all the turmoil, not just in HK but in the mainland, we'll still have all the bureaucracy, xenophobia, low-efficiency and other drawbacks one encounters in doing business in Japan. If businesses leave HK, then they surely won't be coming to Japan, that's for sure.

Kitao's comments are unlikely to go down well with Beijing.

Extremely bold to express the reality of the situation.

I worry that Beijing will consider this a violation of the restrictions to think freely.

He is right, why pay the high cost of living in HK.

Hong Kong is China’s loss, and - as the free minds escape - the free world’s gain.

It is tough for the Hong Konger’s but if it were me, I’d place my freedom over the most cause of a Hong Kong that is no more.
