Despite its proximity to communist China, Hong Kong is a world apart from the mainland. Local government respects personal freedom and the business culture resembles that of the UK, with similar company and trust laws.
Hong Kong was ranked fifth in The World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Survey for 2018, scoring particularly well for starting a business and paying taxes. It has an excellent infrastructure, refined financial networks, a well-educated workforce and a focus on free and fair competition.
A magnet for global capital and multinational businesses, the Asian Tiger is a key financial hub where Eastern and Western interests intersect. A good understanding of its business and cultural nuances will help you win respect in your new environment.
