Hong Kong is a special administrative region (SAR) of the People's Republic of China (PRC). Under the Basic Law of Hong Kong, its diplomatic relations and defence are the responsibility of the Central People's Government of the PRC. Nonetheless, Hong Kong has retained considerable autonomy in all other aspects, including economic and commercial relations, and customs control. Therefore, Hong Kong continues to play an active role in the international arena and maintains close contact with its international partners. Furthermore, Hong Kong continues to be an active, independent member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in the name of Hong Kong, China.
