Newsclip®: [Business] Hong Kong countdown beacon illuminates fears over China | TODAYonline

"HONG KONG — A new art installation displayed on Hong Kong’s tallest building is the latest expression of the city’s growing fears that its freedoms are under threat as Beijing tightens it grip. The artwork, which runs down the sides of the harbourfront International Commerce Centre each night for around a minute, is a giant digital countdown to 2047. That year marks the end of an agreement guaranteeing Hong Kong’s semi-autonomous status, made when Britain handed the city back to China in 1997.", www.todayonline.com
