#HONGKONG: Heritage Foundation Drops City-State From Freest Economy List

[world politics news]

Hong Kong used to dominate the annual Heritage Foundation ranking of the world’s freest economies. 

But the Asian City-State has disappeared entirely from the latest list. Together with Macau, it is now counted as part of China to reflect to he Communist staye's increasing sway over policy following months of pro-democracy protests in 2019. 

In the latest edition published on Mar 3, China resides in 107th place in the ranking, sandwiched between Uganda and Uzbekistan among economies rated as “mostly unfree.”

The move to scrap Hong Kong and Macau’s independent ratings comes as top Communist Party officials prepare to meet in Beijing for the National People’s Congress.
