20 years ago, Hong Kong was handed over from British to Chinese sovereignty. We look at the relationship between Hong Kong and China with Stephen Ng, chairman of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce. Marcos Chan is a senior analyst at the real estate company CBRE, and considers the booming commercial property market in Hong Kong. Tara Joseph is president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and tells us about trade between the two entities. The BBC's Audrey Tinline finds out about the thousands of school children who commute across the border from China for their education. Plus we hear from Michelle Sun of the First Code Academy about the work her organisation is doing to equip children with computer coding skills. (Picture: Xi Jinping in Hong Kong.
