Hong Kong welcomes tech companies

Hong Kong’s unique position in Asia and its low taxation regime are two reasons why international tech companies and entrepreneurs are coming to base their business in the city. Another important matter to consider when choosing the location for a tech company in Asia is manufacturing: if the headquarters are based close to a manufacturing hub, the developer will be able to better manage the operations. Hong Kong is located close to Mainland China where cities like Shenzhen are known to be important manufacturing hubs for Hong Kong companies.

The city encourages investors to open a Hong Kong company and further encourages investments in technology through a very-well developed tech infrastructure: the Hong Kong Science Park is an important base for an astounding number of tech companies.

The technology sector is also involved in trading with a variety of tech products. Those manufacturers interested both in Hong Kong company formation and in trading will need to observe the requirements for licensing in order to trade.
