Why Doing Business in Hong Kong ? Hong Kong is a multicultural city with a myriad of business opportunities. A fusion of East and West, Hong Kong combines modern capitalist drive with traditional Chinese values to create a unique business and cultural setting for your organisation. The double benefits of a capitalist system and easy access to the Chinese market makes Hong Kong one of the world's foremost business centres. An understanding of Hong Kong's complex internal relationship between western business ideals and traditional Chinese culture is essential for anyone doing business in Hong Kong .
