About Hong Kong
As one of China's Special Administrative Regions, Hong Kong is without a doubt the country's most developed and prosperous city. Thanks to its rich economy, which is mainly driven by the tertiary sector, it provides many career prospects for foreign professionals. Hong Kong is the gateway to China. It’s the financial centre and business hub of the country; a super connector for global businesses interested in trading with China. It also has an extremely modern and functional transport system.
From the international airport you can catch a flight to a multitude of destinations in a short amount of time. Wherever you need to go at whatever time of day, you’ll never be stuck for options with Hong Kong’s efficient transport network. The weather, culture, nightlife and distance from beaches/mountainous regions are just a few of the reasons why the quality of life in Hong Kong surpasses other cities.
