US-China Economic and Security Review Commission 2004 Annual Report to Congress

In its latest report to the U.S Congress, the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission reported that "China's recent actions toward Taiwan and Hong Kong call into question its commitments to a peaceful approach toward Taiwan and to preserving Hong Kong's autonomy and self government. These developments merit a fresh look at U.S. policies in these areas by the Congress and executive branch."

The Commission recommended that "Congress should consult with the administration to assess jointly whether the PRC's recent interventions impacting Hong Kong's autonomy constitute grounds for invoking the terms of the U.S.-Hong Kong Policy Act with regard to Hong Kong's separate treatment. Congress and the administration should continue to keep Hong Kong issues on the U.S.-PRC bilateral agenda and work closely with the United Kingdom on Hong Kong issues."
