Welcome Message

Welcome message from the Director-General of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, London

Welcome to the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London.

First established in 1946, this office today represents the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government in the United Kingdom as well as Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Russia and Sweden. Working alongside other members of the Hong Kong family: namely the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, Invest Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Tourism Board, our mission is to promote and strengthen Hong Kong’s economic, trade and cultural links with those countries.

As Asia’s world city, Hong Kong is a leading international business and financial centre, as well as a regional transportation and logistics hub. The city is renowned for its core fundamentals and institutional strengths, including the rule of law, independence of the judiciary, free trade and investment regimes, and an efficient government. Coupled with its ideal location as the gateway to Mainland China and Asia, Hong Kong has been a choice location for international companies to oversee and manage their regional operations. With its fascinating cultural and artistic life, Hong Kong has much to offer the discerning visitors.

This website also links you to one of the world's most vibrant, exciting and rewarding places. It provides comprehensive and up-to-date information on different aspects of Hong Kong, including government services, frequently-asked questions and details of business opportunities.

I hope you find this website useful. Please feel free to contact us for more information about Hong Kong, its business environment or investment opportunities. We look forward to collaborating with you!
