HSBC has openly supported the national security law China is imposing on Hong Kong, breaking the bank’s silence on the legislation opposed by the UK government. Following similar moves by Swire and Jardine Matheson, two British colonial-era trading houses, the bank signalled its favourable public position on the laws in a carefully worded post on Chinese social media platform WeChat. It said that Peter Wong, chief executive of the lender’s Asian businesses, had signed a petition in support of the laws. The post said: “We reiterate that we respect and support laws and regulations that will enable Hong Kong to recover and rebuild the economy and, at the same time, maintain the principle of ‘one country two systems’.” HSBC confirmed the contents of the post and declined to comment further.
I was just curious to hear other people's feelings about it. I am considering closing my accounts with the bank, but wonder if I am in a minority and most people don't really care?
