Hong Kong is a unique market destination for Australian businesses,
entrepreneurs, start-ups and investors. Hong Kong operates under the unique
“one country, two systems” policy with its own currency, political and
legal systems distinct from mainland China. This policy has placed Hong
Kong as an indisputable international financial hub with a sound regulatory
environment that is business-friendly.
Hong Kong affords benefits such as:
- No foreign ownership restrictions
- A free and open market
Rule of Law
- Strong intellectual property rights and legal protections to ensure a
fair business environment
Free movement of capital, talent, goods, information and media
In addition, Hong Kong’s proximity to China and other markets makes it an
ideal launching pad for Australian companies wanting to enter Asia or
expand their existing business. As a result, Hong Kong is often chosen as a
test market for new products and as a logistics and distribution hub. With
English as a main language, the city is also seen as being
internationally-friendly in addition to having a multilingual workforce
with high capabilities in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.
