Y a-t-il une frontière chinoise ? La circulation des informations entre Hong Kong et la Chine

Abstract : IS THERE A CHINESE FRONTIER ? - Despite the powerful barriers erected by the Communist regime, it seems that the Chinese population is not completely without information about the rest of the world. Three main currents of information pass through Hong Kong which, though Chinese by population, serves as a sieve between People's China and the West. These three currents are provided by the mass media, tourists and the Communist organisation in the colony itself. The information thus provided gives a positive image of Hong Kong and a more subtle appreciation of the West. It reaches two minority groups in China : those who are Cantonese or Chinese from overseas and have parents in the colony and particularly higher executives. Although its effect is not well known, this information seems to have influenced Chinese public opinion and maybe even the formation of Peking's new open-door policy.
