Abstract: This paper examines how travel between China and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is a function of the constitutional arrangement negotiated between China and Britain, leading up to the return of Hong Kong to Chinese sovereignty in 1997. The Joint Sino-British Agreement allowed ‘Hong Kong, China’ to function as a separate customs territory and, importantly, to retain membership in the World Trade Organization (W.T.O.). As such, China has had to negotiate a series of trade arrangements in accordance with W.T.O. regulations. From a tourism perspective, Hong Kong has become a supranational destination for Chinese tourists that functions as an ‘independent’ sub-state of China. The paper then examines empirically the impact this relationship has had on tourist flows and subsequent tourist behavior.
本文检视中国与香港特别行政区之间的旅游往来,作为在1997年香港主权回归中国后中国与英国谈判达成的宪法安排。中英联合声明容许〝中国香港〞作为独立的海关领土,并保留其世界贸易组织(世贸)的成员资格。因此,中国不得不按照世贸规定进行一系列贸易安排的妥协。从旅游角度看,香港已成为中国旅客的超国家旅游目的地。本文亦从实证研究此关系对于旅客流量和随后旅游行为的影响。
