Strategic Location

Hong Kong is within one hour’s drive from the Pearl River Delta, the world’s biggest producer of electronic goods, toys, garments and textiles, plastic products and a range of other goods. It is also a short flight from other low cost manufacturing countries in Asia, such as Vietnam, Thailand, India, Indonesia and Bangladesh. The region’s sourcing diversity provides increased flexibility and improved efficiencies. Within easy travelling distance of suppliers and in the same time zone, client companies can move beyond a basic purchase/sell transaction to build long-term strategic relationships with their vendors. A local presence enables collaboration in areas such as design, innovation and inventory management, control of quality standards and social responsibility and knowledge of the financial health of manufacturers in the supply chain. Hong Kong is a tariff-free port and has the world’s busiest cargo airport which handles more than four million tonnes of cargo each year. It also has one of the world’s busiest container ports with over 100 international shipping lines connecting with over 5,000 destinations worldwide and more than 230,000 vessels docking each year.

Sourcing Hub for the World's Biggest Retailers

Many of the world’s biggest retailers including Wal-Mart, Tesco, ALDI, ICA, Kingfisher, WHSmith, Lidl and Gap have set up their regional sourcing operations in Hong Kong.

Medical and Healthcare Equipment

Medical device and equipment companies in Hong Kong make good partners for contract or joint venture manufacturing because of their high quality processes and Hong Kong’s strong legal protection for intellectual property.

If you are part of a medical and healthcare business seeking opportunities for expansion in Asia-Pacific, InvestHK’s Innovation & Technology team can answer your questions.

Medical Services

Hong Kong is renowned for the high professional standards of its healthcare personnel and its widespread use of advanced medical technologies and equipment.

Hong Kong is the Capital Raising Venue of Choice

[ihkcontentimage] Hong Kong is the world’s equity funding leader. In 2014, total equity funds raised through IPOs in Hong Kong amounted to US$30 billion. The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (SEHK) was not only the top stock exchange for IPOs for three consecutive years from 2009 to 2011, it also maintained top five ranking in the global IPO market for the past decade. Hong Kong is Mainland China’s international equity funding centre. Shares of Mainland China enterprises listed in Hong Kong take the form of H-shares, red chips and Mainland private enterprises. Red chips are enterprises that are incorporated outside of Mainland China but are controlled by Mainland entities. As at end 2014, 133 red chips were listed in Hong Kong, with a combined market capitalisation of US$670 billion or 20.9% of SEHK’s total market capitalisation. As the world’s second largest importer, Mainland China is one of the most promising markets for most major global corporations. Hong Kong has become a preferred listing place for international corporations that sell into the Mainland market. These companies benefit from the familiarity of Mainland households with their products and receive high valuation in listing. Hong Kong is fast becoming the leading fundraising market for world mineral and exploration companies. As at end June 2013, the market capitalisation of resources companies listed on the SEHK was about US$390 billion, accounting for 14% of SEHK’s equity market capitalisation and a 17-fold increase from US$23 billion in 2002. InvestHK has helped capital raising firms establish a presence in Hong Kong.

As a world-famous shopping destination, Hong Kong has both. [ihkcontentimage] As a favourite shopping destination of affluent Mainland Chinese, Hong Kong is an unrivalled ‘shop window’ for retailers, and a testbed for further expansion. You can maximise your retail business opportunities due to a free port (no import or export tariffs on most merchandise), no sales tax and a low tax base of only 16.5 percent profits tax.

Retail

Whether you are a retailer, a wholesaler, involved in sourcing, buying or trading, Hong Kong offers you the dual advantages of proximity to source and access to consumers. The climate is conducive to year-round indoor and outdoor shopping while four distinct seasons drive seasonal consumption. The city's superb location and its Asian hub status make Hong Kong an ideal gateway to Mainland China and to other emerging markets and manufacturing regions including Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Indonesia. Hong Kong also has a large pool of skilled talent, from design to merchandising. Hong Kong’s extended festive season, encompassing Christmas and Chinese New Year, gives an annual boost to shopping activity in the region. The strongest representation of international retail brands in Asia is evidence that Hong Kong is one of the world’s most advantageous retail locations. InvestHK can offer practical support to retailers wishing to set up in Hong Kong. To find out more, contact InvestHK's Consumer Products team.

Jewellery

Hong Kong is the world’s fifth largest exporter of precious jewellery and the world’s second largest exporter of custom jewellery. It is also the leading production centre for pure gold items, the major centre for jade production and the leading trading and distribution centre for pearls. On top of all that it’s also the capital of Asia’s diamond trade. Hong Kong has a large concentration of designers, buyers and suppliers. The low-cost-manufacturing easily accessible on the Mainland, combined with Hong Kong’s pool of talent, create ideal conditions for value-added processing.

Education

[ihkcontentimage] In recent years, Hong Kong’s continuing and professional education sector has flourished, as more and more people have sought to upgrade their academic qualifications and improve their career prospects. Education services are one of the Hong Kong Government’s six priority areas for substantial investment and development, as identified in its 2009 policy address. Internationalisation and diversification are two key themes. The Government has implemented a number of measures to promote development of the sector, including providing more public land to build new tertiary institutions and international schools, setting up the Continuing Education Fund to incentivise lifelong learning by adults, public subsidy for local accreditation of non-local higher education programmes and rationalising student/graduate visa policies. InvestHK can provide practical support and guidance to education providers wishing to set up in Hong Kong. Contact the Business & Professional Services team to find out more.

Training

Multinational companies and organisations have long realised the benefits of staff training. This awareness has now begun to spread to smaller and medium-sized enterprises, which are spending more resources on training to increase their competitiveness and retain staff. Courses in leadership, team building, communication and presentation skills, stress management and other areas are popular, presenting opportunities for innovative service providers. There is no barrier to overseas institutions setting up in Hong Kong, and distance learning courses and courses conducted in collaboration with local higher education institutions are exempt from registration.

Hong Kong Offers Unrivalled Opportunities in the Financial Sector

[ihkcontentimage] Hong Kong is the ideal gateway for foreign firms seeking access to the Mainland, and for mainland enterprises going global. Renowned for its free flow of information and capital, advanced financial infrastructure and effective regulatory regime, Hong Kong has attracted a rich pool of professional talent and financial expertise. In addition, Hong Kong’s position as a major asset management, capital formation, banking and insurance hub is supported by a business-friendly environment, low taxation and a trusted legal system. In fact, Hong Kong overtakes the United States and the United Kingdom to top the World Economic Forum’s annual Financial Development Report released in October 2012. This is the second consecutive year Hong Kong ranked in first and Hong Kong’s position was bolstered by strong scores in non-banking financial services such as IPO activity and insurance. The financial service industry is one of Hong Kong’s four pillar industries, which employed 230,000 people in 2013, or 5.9% of the city’s entire workforce. In the banking sector, Hong Kong is one of the largest banking centres in the world with 71 of the world’s top 100 banks being established a presence here.

Hong Kong’s Role as an Offshore RMB Centre

The burgeoning renminbi (RMB) business is another bright spot in Hong Kong’s financial services industry. Hong Kong has developed into the most comprehensive and competitive platform for offshore RMB business. In 2014, renminbi trade settlement handled by banks in Hong Kong exceeded RMB6.3 trillion. This reflects Hong Kong’s role as the global hub for renminbi trade settlement, serving both local and overseas banks and companies. Apart from providing a full range of RMB banking services including trade settlement and financing, Hong Kong has the largest pool of offshore RMB liquidity. As the end of last year, RMB deposits and outstanding RMB certificates of deposits totaled RMB952 billion. 

Sustained Growth in the Fund Management Sector

Hong Kong’s fund management business is not only highly internationalised. According to the latest survey issued by Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), the number of hedge fund managed by SFC-licensed hedge fund managers in Hong Kong increased from 676 in 2012 to 778 as of Q32014. At the same time, Hong Kong’s hedge fund industry remained robust. As the latest survey from SFC indicated that the total hedge fund assets under management (AUM) in Hong Kong increased from US$9.1 billion in 2004 to US$120.9 billion in Q32014.

MICE accounted for about 1.61 million visitors to Hong Kong in 2013, about 46 percent of these arriving from Mainland China. Hong Kong offers visa-free entry to visitors from over 170 countries. It boasts a wide variety of pre- and post-event itineraries and is the ideal location for business and leisure visitors. As Asian markets continue to grow, the opportunity is ripe to offer Asian versions of established trade or consumer shows. The best way to get information on Hong Kong’s dynamic MICE sector is to contact InvestHK’s Tourism & Hospitality team.

Cruises

Hong Kong’s strategic location in the heart of Asia and its proximity to Mainland China provide excellent potential to capture the growth in the Asia Pacific cruise market. It is a popular cruise destination in its own right and the ideal starting point for itineraries covering Mainland China and Asia Pacific. The opening of Kai Tak Cruise Terminal in 2013 consolidates Hong Kong’s position as leading cruise hub in the region. Hong Kong also boasts excellent connectivity with a magnificent natural harbour that is deep enough for cruise liners and has no air draft limit, plus a world-class airport, which is ideal for fly-cruise passengers. InvestHK has helped cruise operators set up their Asian headquarters in Hong Kong. To find out more, contact the Tourism & Hospitality team.
