Abstract: The July 1, 2003, protest, when over half a million Hong Kong people took to the streets, led to the resignation of Being's handpicked leader of Hong Kong. Tung Chee-hwa. Since that lime, the Beijing government has lightened its control over the political development of the Special-Administrative Region, strengthening and widening the channels through which it closely monitors the performance the Hong Kong government and the pulse of public. While trying in avoid the appearance of blatant intervention in Hong Kong's ”internal” affairs under the constitutional framework of ”one country, two systems”, Beijing has subtly revised its model of governance in a way that ensures a more effective connection with a cadre of powerful local elites. The paper will examine who these elites are, and discuss the importance of China's politics of elite absorption in Hung Kong. The analysis includes a newly constructed elite database. By way of conclusion, the bleak future of Hong Kong's highly autonomous status is discussed.
