The presence of settlements, territories and places with special status in China can be observed in earlier periods of history and today as well, similarly to other parts of the world. In many cases, special status plays an important role in securing strategic positions and territoriality, management and exploitation of status and special rights could be a major economic competitive advantage which may result in a dynamically developing economy. After presenting the past and present economic and geopolitical importance of these Chinese territories, our paper examines the role, competitiveness and sustainability challenges of Hongkong which became a part of China again as a special administrative region (SAR) in 1997. Hongkong's economic history is a series of continuous challenges and successful adaptations. The attractive geostrategic position and special autonomy of this area has resulted an intensive development of commerce and services. Changing external challenges and market competition have generated new economic activities from time to time. Success and longerterm sustainability no longer depends on the relationship between colonial countries and colonies but can be achieved through the management of this special relationship with China. The special status and geostrategic location is an interesting product for the outside world and China is also interested in maintaining Hongkong's special status. However, this system is quite vulnerable: it works as long as its specific products and services are competitive.
