Abstract: 自中国国家主席习近平在2013年宣布“一带一路”倡议以来,该进程就受到国际社会和沿线国家的高度关注和讨论。本论文将以此作为“双城”,即以新加坡和香港为研究案例,检阅他们在进程上的考量和策略。在地理位置和发展的限制下,“双城”反其道而行地向中国进行经贸投资,也与中国联合开展独具慧眼的旗舰项目来发挥其金融服务领域等优势。新加坡和香港两地的中英文报章尽管揭示出政商界积极地相应中国的号召,但群众却呈现出截然不同的反映。新加坡群众在此议题上一致性地表示支持,反观香港却呈现出他们在政治和经济等多面的想法。然而,本研究发现“双城”在进程上的互动止步政商界层面上,未涉及到社会层面的整合,突显出其局限与视角。Since China President Xi Jinping announced the establishment of the “Belt and Road Initiative” in 2013, it has attracted great attention from the international community and countries along the initiative. This paper will use it as a reference point on “Twin Cities”, namely Singapore and Hong Kong, to review their various considerations and strategies. Due to geographic location and development constraints, they had made different economic and trade investments approaches to China. Likewise, both cities had separately launched a flagship project with China which shows that they are well aware of the economic potential they can play in the initiative, such as financial services sector. Through the scope of "Twin Cities" Chinese and English newspaper articles, the paper will indicate that both political and business circles are actively responding to China's call, but as for the masses responses, it had painted a different picture. Paper will show that Singaporeans are relatively consistent with the government argument, while the Hong Kongese had presented their multifaceted political and economic concerns on it. Hence, analysis will show that during the course of interaction, both cities halted at the political and business level, shortcoming of involving in the integration of the social level and these highlightened their limitations and perspectives on the initiative.
