Trade Commissioner Service - Hong Kong, SAR

Hong Kong's well-educated, English-speaking and internationally focused business community controls huge flows of goods, services and investments. Hong Kong has a strong services sector with a full range of modern business services. Hong Kong offers a tremendous array of business opportunities, and is an excellent platform for doing business in Asia.

Hong Kong offers excellent commercial opportunities to Canadian firms. In addition to having a strong domestic market, Hong Kong plays an important role as a trading hub and gateway in the region. Hong Kong, therefore, is a logical entry point for Canadian companies interested in getting a foothold into China and Asia writ large. Many Canadian companies partner with Hong Kong-based distributors and agents who import Canadian products and ship them to China. Not only does Hong Kong serve as a trading hub where transactions are conducted, but it also provides a platform to showcase Canadian products and technologies to buyers from the region. Furthermore, many Canadian companies choose Hong Kong as a base for their Mainland China and regional operations for a range of reasons, including the transparent regulatory framework, vibrant labour market, monetary stability and 0% average tariff rate, resulting in one of the world’s most open economies for trade and investment.

From Hong Kong, we also cover Macao.
