Best Answer

China took over Hong Kong from the British nearly 50 years ago. China is still running Hong Kong to this day and it's not clear what will happen when the lease expires in 2047.

In 1842, Great Britain invaded China and forced them to cede the Kowloon Peninsula to them as a result of their victory in the First Opium War. In 1860, they expanded their control of Hong Kong by acquiring more land on both sides of Victoria Harbour.
