Easy recruitment of skilled staff

Hong Kong has a strong pool of local talent, while business-friendly immigration policies make it simple to recruit professionals from overseas.

Hong Kong thrives on strong work ethics, efficiency and a can-do attitude. Its people offer a winning combination of international savvy and knowledge of Western/Chinese business culture.

Easy recruitment of skilled staff

Almost all business professionals speak excellent English, the usual language of business. Many people also speak Cantonese (Hong Kong’s most widely spoken language) and Mandarin (also known as Putonghua, the language of Mainland China).

Recruiting local staff is straightforward and Hong Kong’s strong work ethic makes industrial action an extremely rare occurrence.

Hong Kong’s immigration policies are designed to attract overseas professionals, talent and investors. Policies are family friendly and expatriate employees can normally bring their spouse and dependent children. Visa types and details can be found here and InvestHK’s staff are on hand to advise on applying for work visas.
