Survey: Hong Kong Citizens Dislike Filipinos

A survey conducted by the University of Hong Kong’s Public Opinion Program (POP) revealed citizens of Hong Kong negative feelings towards the Philippine government and Filipinos.

According to the report, 87% of the more than 600 respondents from Hong Kong feel disgust about the government of the Philippines. The respondents also voted governments of Japan (59%), Mainland China (37%), US (32%) and Thailand (24%) as they most hate.


Meanwhile, the governments they hate the least, are those of Canada (2%), Australia (3%), Germany (5%), Singapore and Macau (7%) and Taiwan (8%).


Meanwhile, the survey also revealed that 44% of the respondents dislike the Filipinos, highest among other nationalities. The people of Hong Kong also voted people from Mainland China 36% and US 12% as they least like citizens.


Out of all respondents, only 1% favored the Philippine government and 11% likes Filipino.


“[Hong Kong] people’s negative feeling toward the government of Hong Kong SAR, Mainland China and the Philippines are at their new high since 1997,” the POP director Robert Chung said.


The “hate response” of Hong Kong citizens towards the Philippines started after the Quirino hostage tragedy in August 2010 that kills eight Hong Kong tourists.

    They hate Filipinos when so many of them cannot even go to work without leaving their kids to Filipina domestic helpers. They don’t realize that their country wouldn’t be as successful as it is now without the support of their domestic helpers whom they call as people coming from a “nation of slaves.” Looking forward to the time when Filipinos need not go to Hongkong to work as DH. And for those who have the money to spend, better not go there to shop or to bring kids to Disneyland.
