ABOUT HONG KONG

Positioned at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on the coast of southern China, Hong Kong’s geographical position as a gateway between the East and West has made it an attractive centre for international trade. Hong Kong covers Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and New Territories, including 262 outlying islands, and has a population of over 7 million people.

Also known as the "Pearl of the Orient", Hong Kong’s strategic location coupled with its sophisticated infrastructure, easy accessibility, business-friendly environment, professional expertise and vibrant lifestyles make this city a popular destination for international business, MICE and leisure. Hong Kong is also touted as one of the world’s leading financial hubs. Most recent new developments include a world-class cruise terminal at former Kai Tak Airport, providing a convenient gateway to Hong Kong, and from Hong Kong to China and Asia.

Hong Kong has played host to numerous international concerts, trade exhibitions and major sports events like the Hong Kong Marathon, the Masters of Hong Kong (Equestrian), the Hong Kong Sevens (Rugby), the FIVB Volleyball Nations League and the Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races.
