Abstract

Based on empirical materials, trade figures and in-depth semi-structural interviews, the chapter begins with a macro account of the interaction between the mainland and Hong Kong through the historical development of Hong Kong's textile and clothing industries. The beneficiaries of its development to the mainland will be highlighted. A microanalysis of the experiences of Hong Kong creative labourers working within their mainland counterparts follows. Revealed within are intriguing connections, beneficiaries, socio-cultural differences and mutual exchange between the two regions.
