Because it was the capital of a conservative dynasty which asserted strong control over the metropolis, Beijing was slower to modernize than other important Chinese cities.
This is surprising given that it was the undisputed political and cultural capital of China during the late imperial era, and that it has been China's capital for most of the twentieth century.

 RGE - China‚Äôs capital controls and the RMB
And if the situation really got out of hand,  China could, of course, just reimpose capital controls - so this entire debate is rather theoretical.   The evidence we have doesn't suggest that China's capital controls work perfectly, but it does suggest that they work.
With capital controls it is much harder to do this since any money corrupt managers and officials steal will be in a Chinese bank, where they can be impounded, rather than in the Cayman Islands.
Now we can debate what inflation in China really is and whether this leaves real interest rates too low, but there is little evidence in the HK renminbi markets or even a fl market in China to suggest locals are trying to flee the renminbi.
