  • Démission du directeur général Rupert Hogg — Cathay Pacific

Cathay se dit pleinement attachée à Hong Kong selon le principe "Un pays, deux systèmes" prévu par les accords de rétrocession à la Chine.

La crise politique dans l'ex-colonie britannique pourrait avoir des conséquences pires que celles de la crise financière de 2008, a récemment averti Carrie Lam, la cheffe de l'exécutif local, nommée par Pékin.

Il s'agit du plus grand défi posé à la souveraineté de Pékin sur sa région semi-autonome et le gouvernement central a musclé son discours, assimilant au " terrorisme " les actions les plus violentes du mouvement.

À Shenzen, ville située à sept kilomètres de la frontière hongkongaise, des militaires chinois, de nombreux camions et des blindés ont été réunis dans un stade. "Pékin n'a pas encore décidé d'intervenir énergiquement pour réprimer les émeutes de Hong Kong, mais cette option est clairement à sa disposition", écrit le tabloïd nationaliste publié par le Quotidien du Peuple, l'organe officiel du Parti communiste chinois (PCC) au pouvoir à Pékin, dans un éditorial.

La machine à tweets trumpienne répète à l'envi son " zéro doute " sur la capacité du président Xi à régler humainement le problème de Hong Kong.

Cathay Pacific CEO resigns after pressure from Beijing
Many businesses, including other major property developers, have publicly backed Lam's administration and the city's police. Cathay's new chief executive Mr Tang was the head of Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company, which is also owned by Swire.

"Si le président Xi rencontrait directement et en personne les manifestants, il y aurait une fin heureuse et positive au problème de Hong Kong".

Ces images ont considérablement entamé l'image d'un mouvement qui avait su se rendre très populaire et ne s'en était jusqu'alors pris qu'aux forces de l'ordre et aux institutions.

Mais le risque de nouvelles échauffourées est réel. Les États-Unis ont mis en garde Pékin contre une répression des manifestants. L'homme le plus riche de Hong Kong, Li Ka-shing, a affiché dans la presse vendredi une opinion beaucoup plus subtile s'appuyant sur des vers de poésie classique et un langage à plusieurs niveaux de lecture pour appeler à la paix.

Sur fond de tensions persistantes dans les relations entre Washington et Pékin, la Chine a refusé l'escale à Hong Kong à deux navires de l'US Navy.
