Presents, for the first time, a detailed assessment of the migration from Hong Kong that has occurred since the second half of the 1980s. This pronounced outflow of highly educated people, popularly known as the brain drain, is having a profound impact on destination areas, as well as on Hong Kong. The focus is on how the migration has affected Hong Kong, with emphasis on the transition to Chinese sovereignty in 1997.
