“Together • Progress • Opportunity” Exhibition in Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Return of Hong Kong to the Motherland

National Museum of China - Gallery S1
Organised by The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government

On 1 July 1997, Hong Kong returned to the Motherland as a Special Administrative Region, an epochal milestone in the history of the city. During the past two decades, under the “one country, two systems” arrangement, Hong Kong has been fully deploying its advantages to contribute to the nation’s development in many ways.

This exhibition, presented in 10 sections, is themed around the concept of “Togetherness”, the binding, driving force that propels the strength and prosperity of the Motherland and Hong Kong.

Through photos, exhibits, models, multimedia programmes and interactive installations, the exhibition showcases how Hong Kong and the Mainland join hands in fields such as trade, finance, technology, infrastructure, culture, sports and disaster relief, building closer connections with each other. It also shows how Hong Kong is poised to seize the new opportunities arising from the nation’s 13th Five-year Plan and the visionary Belt and Road Initiative, and how the city serves as a “super-connector” to enhance the long-term prosperity of the Motherland and the Hong Kong SAR.

We hope that the exhibition will give our visitors a better understanding of Hong Kong’s achievements since its return to the Motherland and a sense of the strong bond between the two places and their people.

We will foster even closer cooperation and exchanges to build a better future – together.
