Old Hong Kong
But in 50 years ago, which is back in the 1960, was the important decade for Hong Kong economic rise. Because Globalization has started to effect Hong Kong, there were businessmen from different western countries such as England ,started interact with Hong Kong, investing in Hong Kong's economy and slowly began the process of globalizing Hong Kong.
Modern Hong Kong
Hong Kong became the international financial center which connects to different countries and
Hong Kong had finally became globalized country.
60s Economic

This business gave the 60s HK economy a huge boost. The economy of Hong Kong was starting to transform Hong Kong into a whole different country.
Transportation 50 Years ago
Back then when we didn't have that advance technology, transportation cost were expensive and a lot of average class people were not able to afford their own private vehicle. Most transportation were much slower and produced much more Co2.
50 Years ago
The number of tourist in Hong Kong has dramatically increase, due to technology which is available today that didn't exist 50 years ago

Technology which made Transportation:
-Much more accessible
-More efficient

Analysis of the graph
Compare to innovate driven economy country, Hong Kong got more score than it (6/7 score) on financial market development. The infrastructure area also gain a high score than other countries, which is 6.7 score.

Using these two result from the graph, we can tell Hong Kong is a country that able to compete with other innovative countries and proving Hong Kong is definetly a globalized city, showing the difference between Hong Kong 60s.
As the graph shows, the amount of cargo and passengers in 1967 was 26.5 tons and 1.2 million respectively. But compare to now, the amount of cargo has shown a big contrast to the result in 1967, now there were 3742 tons of cargo and 46.3 millions of passengers.From the graph,We can tell that globalization has change Hong Kong.
-The effect of globalization has make impact on the economic of the country starts off in the 19th century while the interaction and working method of England have developed through out the course of history.

- Colonized and interacting with the UK have caused Hong Kong to develop a higher picture in Economy

-Having the UK to teach us their way of ordering and finance, starting our very first economical evolution.
The GDP of Hong Kong keep rising from the 60s. Although there are some falls on the GDP in the graph,still it didn't interfere the increasing of Hong Kong's GDP.Globalization has brought different opportunities for Hong Kong and it helps to transform Hong Kong to a different place than before.
Overall, we compare 60s Hong Kong and modern Hong Kong.We think globalization has transform Hong Kong entirely. It provides lots of opportunity letting Hong Kong to develop and gives a more broad view to the world than before.

Hong Kong 50 year ago
Media has also played an important role, in helping tourism in Hong Kong grow. As it helps advertise Hong Kong city, towards the rest of the world attracting tourist from all over the world to come and visit.

Back 50 years ago, these type media didn't exist yet, Media such as the television has not yet been introduced to the world. International news didnt exist back then,and news from individual countries hardly reached the rest of the world. Alot of people back in the 1960's were not really educated about the outside world, and the situation about the different countries. Where international traveling was quite rare.
Cons of Globalization

-Globalization would affect the environment of Hong Kong since, more and more business complex such as malls will be erected for economical gain. Forcing forests to be cut down to be able to build these complexes.

-For international trade, the transportation for exporting and importing products by boats, cars, and planes will also damage the ecosystem since there will be a lot of Co2 which will be released into the atmosphere by these vehicles

-There are a lot of people who are already living in poverty and in cage housing, these increase property prices will not make their situation any better, but worsen the situation that they are already in.
Pros Of globalization
