Hong Kong is a sophisticated fusion of the east and the west. This modern city is home to a fairly cultural society. People here celebrate a mix of festivals like Christmas, Chinese New Year, Dragon Boat Festival and so many more. From trendy boutiques to traditional Chinese local shops bustling into the streets, travellers are offered a unique shopping experience.
As a renowned commerce district, Hong Kong is known for its breathtaking skylines and harbour views. The high density of towering buildings and skyscrapers make for an extraordinary nighttime view of twinkling lights.
With Asia’s prime markets being less than four-five hours away, this city attracts business travellers from all over the world. Its prime location is the main reason why over 9,000 businesses have made Hong Kong their home in the last decade. Many multinational companies have set up warehouses, operations, and research and development in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong has been the region’s largest financial hub. It offers highly transparent protocols for banking services, insurance, and retirement schemes. If you are targeting Hong Kong for business expansion, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area is one to look at.
Besides all the above, there is another benefit of setting up business in Hong Kong; namely, its free trade policy. The custom procedures make it easy for any business to run. Moreover, the Hong Kong government is open to entering into more free-trade agreements with fellow trading partners.
