The survey found that 54 per cent said they trusted the government. Forty-seven per cent said they trusted the central government - one percentage point more than in the previous poll two months ago. However, 79 per cent said they had confidence in Hong Kong's future, a rise of 2 percentage points on the previous poll. Seventy-one per cent expressed confidence in 'one country, two systems', an increase of 1 per cent from a survey two months ago. The sample size was 1,015 people, with a response rate of 55 per cent and a margin of error of plus or minus 3 per cent.
