Hong Kong has always been a business success. This modern city of 7.4 million people, situated on the southern coast of China, found its feet as a 19th-century entrepôt and its legacy as an international trading port continues to this day. Thousands of entrepreneurs and globally minded individuals arrive each year to set up shop or work for international companies with global operations.
The opening up of China in 1978 underlined Hong Kong’s role as a bridge between East and West. Forty years after those economic reforms, the city performs a valuable role in helping foreign companies do business in China and Chinese companies to go global. What started out as sourcing suppliers and finding manufacturing facilities has grown into the provision of sophisticated legal services and a trusted jurisdiction for foreign businesses looking to access Asia’s most important consumer market.
Trade links are becoming more integrated due to new infrastructure and co-operation with cities in the Pearl River Delta. But Hong Kong is not all business. The factors that contribute to the city’s ease of doing business – from an enviable location to efficient transport connections and a safe environment – also make living here a rewarding lifestyle choice. Pack your bags for a trip around Hong Kong and prepare to be inspired.
