Among the most free economies in the world

Approximately 3000 international corporations use Hong Kong as a base for their China business operations and foreign businesses are encouraged to establish offices in the territory. There are no limits on the percentage of foreign participation allowed in a business, in terms of ownership or employees. Corporate taxes are low and simple in Hong Kong. Only income from business profits, salaries and property actually arising in or derived from Hong Kong are subject to Hong Kong tax (each of these is assessed separately).
