If Guangzhou was not a colony of British, which I thought it was and realized I made a mistake, exactly what was the deal between England and Guangzhou after the opium war?

Did the British control the economic policies of Guangzhou or either China was just mandated to allow the English to use Guangzhou as a trading port and doing business?

It was opened as a trading port, and China (unwillingly) hired a British to take charge of tariffs.
