I believe the Basic Law, the document that is like a constitution, says that Hong Kong will remain a Special Admin Area for 50 years.

What will happen in 2047, 50 years after 1997, when HK was turned back over to China?

Will HK become a communist area?

That will depend upon whether China is still a communist area by then, I would think. While China may be totalitarian and repressive, its Communism is more in name than fact.
