Welcome to ChinaInvest.biz Magazine - June 2012 Issue
ChinaInvest.biz is the editorial division of Klako Group and will be providing insight into investment, tax and operational issues for foreign companies entering and expanding throughout China.
In our June Issue we are highlighting the advantages of Hong Kong as an Asian business hub for investors looking to establish a presence in this region.
When Hong Kong was handed over to China and changed from a British colony into the ‘one country – two systems’ principle with the Mainland, many wondered how this would effect one of the most important business hubs in Asia. After its expected political ups and downs of settling into its new role, Hong Kong has proven again, for the 14th consecutive year, its status as one of the most important key locations for trade, finance and regional headquarters – and yet again named as the world’s freest economy by the US based ‘Heritage Foundation’. For this reason Hong Kong can be considered as a potential Asian hub for many businesses.
Should you require further information, please contact our Directors at our Group Headquarters and/or China Headquarters.
Hong Kong - A Business Platform to China
“Asia, especially China, is emerging as the world's economic growth engine. Hong Kong is the perfect base from which to access this dynamic market. A uniquely global business city, at the heart of Asia with a Chinese perspective,” is the perfect description used by HKInvest to attract foreign investors into the region.
Hong Kong's status as one of the world's and Asia Pacific's leading destinations for foreign direct investment (FDI) has been reaffirmed by the World Investment Report 2009 released by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in September. Hong Kong continues to be Asia's second largest and the world's seventh largest FDI recipient, attracting US$63 billion inward investment in 2008. This amount represented a 15.9% increase year-on-year in spite of the global financial and economic crisis that has caused FDI inflows to some developed economies to half. Hong Kong also continues to have the highest FDI stock in the region amounting to nearly US$835.8 billion.
