About Us

As a major international center for trading, finance, manufacturing, telecommunications and transportation in the Asia-Pacific region, Hong Kong has long been a powerful lure to American businesses in search of profit and opportunity.

There are now over 1,300 US firms in Hong Kong, with about two-thirds locating their regional headquarters and regional offices in the territory. With some 60,000 Americans residing in Hong Kong, US citizens now represent one of the most significant foreign presences in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong’s free trade and open-market policies, low taxes and free flow of capital without exchange controls, all appeal to the American business ideal of a “level playing field”. Indeed, Hong Kong not only represents the world’s 9th largest trading entity, it has also been cited as the world’s freest economy for 20 straight years (The Heritage Foundation’s Global Index of Economic Freedom 2014).

With Hong Kong playing a vital role as the gateway to China and the crossroads for commerce with other booming Asian economies, the Hong Kong Association of Atlanta can help you enter this lucrative market for US products, technology and investment.
