Tung Chee-hwa,

who took over as governor of Hong Kong on July 1, is a mixture of Eastern and Western influences. Though born in China, he was raised in Hong Kong, educated in Britain, and employed in the U.S. Despite his success as a shipping tycoon, he has retained traditional Chinese values, and ties to Beijing made him a logical choice to assume leadership for the former colony.
