HK enjoys Belt-Road advantages

Financial Secretary Paul Chan

Hong Kong has the capital, the connections, the products and the expertise to serve as the financial and investor services hub for the Mainland’s Belt & Road initiative. Encompassing some 65 nations spanning Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the Belt-Road is perhaps the 21st century’s most ambitious multilateral undertaking.

HK super-connecting China, the world

Chief Executive CY Leung

Today, no one questions "one country, two systems", "one country, two currencies", "one country, two legal systems" or "one country, two passports". If anything, we only stand to gain from "one country, two systems". It has become our strength, our niche. It enables our city to enjoy the best of both worlds. We are part of China and enjoy the "China advantage", benefitting from all the opportunities that come with the Mainland's development. At the same time, we practise, so to speak, "the other system" that is separate from the Mainland cities. We enjoy the free movement of trade, capital and information, the rule of law, as well as a simple and low tax regime.

Hong Kong's pro-business environment, sound legal system, and free flow of talent and information give us the competitive edge to become the region's premier data centre hub.
