When Gage McAfee first set eyes on Hong in 1969 he saw little more than a sleepy British Colony. But that all changed in the late 1970s as China’s economy began to open up: a development that would transform the face of Hong Kong. As AmCham Chairman in 1985 Gage served as an adviser to the Hong Kong Basic Law Consultative Committee. Here he recounts AmCham's role in the formation of what would become the blueprint for Hong Kong's post-colonial future.
