Some local authorities in Xinjiang now use the two time standards in parallel. Hong Kong and Macau, after the handover of sovereignty in 1997 and 1999, each retain its own time authorities.

Starting in 1914, the government of Republic of China began to use Beijing local mean solar time as its official standard for time. Until 1913, the official standard of time in the rest of China was still the Beijing Solar Percentage, which was then the countrys capital. Until 1979, the local time was determined from astronomical observations made by Hong Kong Observatory using the 6″ Li Equator Telescope and a 3″ transit circle[clarification needed]. In the 1930s, five standard time zones were not completely observed, leading regions within Inner Chinese areas to adopt their own time standards, leading to confusion.

The Hong Kong Monetary Authority sells U.S. dollars if the local currency gets too weak, or buys them if the Hong Kong dollar gets too strong.
