The target economic growth rate of China, which was released annually at the two meetings, China's largest political event, has not been announced. Instead, it has been noted that China has come up with a national security law that prevents Hong Kong protests, which has led to a higher level of conflict between the United States and China.

the National People's Congress, which began with the ignorance of the victims of Corona 19, there was no announcement of China's annual economic growth rate targets this year.

It was the reason that the global economic uncertainty was too great.

Instead, attention was focused on the initiative of the Hong Kong National Security Law.

This is the first example of a Hong Kong-related legislation initiated directly from mainland China, which means that it contains the strong will of President Xi Jinping.

If the Hong Kong National Security Law is enforced, Hong Kong's anti-Chinese protests as well as protesters may be unable to participate in elections.

Hong Kong's executive secretary, Carrie Lam, immediately supported the protests and led the protests by Hong Kong Pan-Democratic Jinyoung, He said it was the end of the year and announced a large-scale protest.

President Trump also expressed a strong willingness to respond.

[Trump / President of the United States: I don't know what it is because no one knows it yet, but if I push the law, the United States will be very strong.]

The US Senate has vowed to draft a law that sanctions Chinese officials and organizations involved in the enactment of the Hong Kong National Security Law.

Hong Kong's National Security Law enactment is yet to be a prime mover in the breathtaking US-China relations as the United States, which wants to contain China through Hong Kong's democratization, and China to strengthen its control over Hong Kong.
