Gateway to Mainland China
Hong Kong is also known as the gateway to China as it offers easy access – commercially and geographically – to Mainland China business opportunities.

The Mainland and Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) is the first free trade agreement between Mainland China and Hong Kong. It opens up huge markets for Hong Kong goods and services, greatly enhancing the existing close economic cooperation and integration.
