Ronald Arculli, the Chairman of the Hong Kong stock exchange rejects allegations that Beijing is pulling the economic levers in Hong Kong.
In an interview for HARDtalk he said "if in fact that were the case we would probably have a far greater growth than we are showing".
"I think as far as the 'One Country Two Systems' is concerned, looking at it from my own personal perspective, occasionally I complain that they religiously held on to their principals - sometimes to the detriment of Hong Kong".
