Hong Kong fowk (Cheenese: 香港人) refer tae the fowk who are frae Hong Kong. The term (an its Cheenese equivalent) haes nae legal definition in Hong Kong. Rather, terms such as Hong Kong permanent resident (香港永久性居民) an Hong Kong resident (香港居民) are uised. Besides bein used byi Hong Kong residents, the term Hong Konger may be uised bi fowk who for ane raison or anither dae no hae legal residence status, but hae spent an extensive period o time in Hong Kong or itherwise hae a strang cultural connection wi Hong Kong. Thus the term is lairgely open tae personal interpretation. Nane o the terms mak reference tae the ethnicity o a body an are unthirlt o Cheenese ceetizenship or residency statuses. The term basically refers tae a body who is frae Hong Kong. Currently maist Hong Kongers are o Cheenese strynd, wi minorities includin those o Indie, Filipino, Indonesie, Pakistani or Vietnamese strynd. Due tae the ane kintra twa systems policy, Hong Kong haes a different poleetical seestem than that o Cheenae, includin a different passport, banner an offeecial leid.
