Fire, Water, Earth, Wood, Metal — How Hong Kong Lost its Quest for Democracy

Presenter / Panelists

Edith Terry, Managing Director of Cotton Tree Advisors, Hong Kong


Vivian Lin

Edith used a Chinese metaphysical model to outline the end of One Country,Two Systems and the likely next version of Hong Kong as it integrates more tightly with the mainland, based on her insights as a former journalist and current strategic consultant. Among the first business people based in Beijing in 1980, Edith has been involved with China, as well as Japan and Southeast Asia, for the past 40 years. She has lived and worked in Hong Kong for the past two decades, where she has engaged in work shaping Hong Kong’s sustainability and post-1997 political economy, as well as its relationship with Mainland China.
