Hong Kong has always been a world unto itself. But today it’s a city  uncertain of its identity. As mainland China surges to the front rank of  the global economy, its vast industrial base has upstaged Hong Kong.  Many civic leaders are now asking what’s left for Hong Kong to do that  makes use of its unique gifts and strengths. In this program we hear two  civic leaders share their far-reaching visions of how a densely  industrialized capital of high finance could become a model for urban  green revitalization.
