Why Hong Kong?

  • Global standing

    The Global Financial Centres Index ranked Hong Kong among the top 4 global financial centres, together with London, New York and Singapore. It is Asia’s premier international financial centre and has demonstrated strong economic resilience. It is one of the world’s most competitive financial and business hubs.

  • Products & services

    Hong Kong has an integrated network of institutions and markets, providing a wide range of financial products and services with a high degree of liquidity to local and international investors.

  • Legal framework

    The legal framework is said to provide effective protection of property rights and strong support for the rule of law, and continues to be a cornerstone of strength for this dynamic city.

  • Taxation policy

    There is a strong emphasis on the rule of law and fair market, and a simple and transparent taxation system.

  • Gateway to Greater China

    Hong Kong is strategically positioned as China’s global financial centre, with a unique connection between the vibrant mainland economy and a world class business environment.

  • Business freedom

    There are no barriers to market access to the foreign businesses and no restrictions on capital flows into and out of the city. Transparency encourages entrepreneurship, and the overall environment is conducive to the formation and operation of startup businesses. The labour code is strictly enforced but not burdensome.

  • Quality of life

    The city’s high living standards, quality of life and environment are frequently ranked among the most attractive in Asia for professionals from outside of Hong Kong.

  • Entrepreneurial support

    Regulatory efficiency and openness to global commerce strongly support entrepreneurial activity. Interaction with China has become more intense through strengthened financial and other non-economic linkages, and Hong Kong is by far the most significant transit point for exports and imports to and from China.

A strategic choice

Many investors and entrepreneurs are choosing to set up their businesses overseas.  Hong Kong is proving a popular choice.  It enables entry into an international market and access to tax friendly jurisdictions and is repeatedly ranked as a leading city for establishing and running a business.  

Hong Kong is strategically located at the heart of Asia.  A five to eight hour flight will connect you to most markets in the Asia-Pacific region. If you need to tap into the mainland Chinese market you will find that Hong Kong is perfectly situated on the southeast coast of mainland China, flanking the mouth of the Pearl River Delta. This facilitates travel to and from Hong Kong and places such as Beijing, Shanghai and other major Chinese cities within a single day.
