After the National People's Congress passed the draft "Decision" of the "Hong Kong version of the National Security Law" on Thursday, it caused a strong rebound in Washington. US President Trump announced on Friday that he would cancel the special US special case against Hong Kong. Huang Jinhui, deputy dean of the School of Engineering at CUHK, said that in recent years, under the Sino-US trade war, well-known universities such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and other well-known universities have strengthened the approval of Sino-US cooperative research. It does not rule out that the United States will tighten or suspend research cooperation between the two places in the future. For example, the scientific research projects of the Hong Kong Government ’s technology innovation platform can be picked up; if in the future, Hong Kong is prohibited from importing supercomputers, cutting-edge instruments for making chips, etc., it may hinder research on AI chips and 5G technology.

US President Trump announced on Friday that he will cancel the special US special case against Hong Kong. The relevant details have not been announced, but it is expected that in addition to the trade between the two sides being affected, the academic community will also be implicated.

If banned supercomputer equipment, data samples, etc. hinder local research
Since the "U.S.-Hong Kong Policy Act" passed in 1992, Hong Kong can continue to import US sensitive technology after the return. Huang Zhi said that he did not conduct sensitive research such as military technology locally, but would introduce supercomputers, cutting-edge instruments for making chips, data samples, etc. to the United States. It is expected that it will be prohibited from being introduced into Hong Kong in the future, or it may hinder local AI chips and 5G. Technology and other research.
Benefited from the "Hong Kong Policy Issue" to request US data
He recalled that he had participated in official academic competitions in the United States from 1994 to 1995, soliciting news materials and introducing supercomputers for analysis. However, when Hong Kong returned in 1997, local institutions did not know that Hong Kong implemented "one country, two systems", restricting his access The data was released after half a year's struggle to explain Hong Kong's special status with the "Policy Law", reflecting the importance of this policy bill.
However, there are no details on the US policy towards Hong Kong at the moment. Huang Jinhui believes that it has little impact on academic research. After all, local universities have cooperated with many US universities for many years, and Hong Kong scientists have always maintained professional integrity, but it is expected that there will be uncertainties in the future, the worst The situation is to completely suspend all scientific research cooperation projects and talent exchanges between the two places.
