Hong Kong's financial free hut ranking dropped from Top 3 to Top 6 in the world due to the anti-amendment incident in the second half of 2019 and the COVID-19 epidemic in the first half of 2020. With the enactment of the National Security Law, many people around the world have raised doubts that Hong Kong has been marginalized by China's central government. This article will further analyze the impact of Hong Kong’s situation in China from the perspective of China's mainland cities, including Hainan free trade zone, that is Hong Kong is the irreplaceable financial free hub. Meanwhile, Mundellian Trilemma theory will be used in analyzing the influence of exchange rate on Hong Kong and Mainland China.
