Welcome Message from the Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Sydney

Raymond Fan, Director, HKETO Sydney

Welcome to the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Sydney, the Hong Kong Government’s representative office for Australia and New Zealand.

For more than 20 years, our role has been to promote Hong Kong in Australia and New Zealand and bring about closer relationships with government and business. Hong Kong offers endless opportunities for trade, investment, business, sport, culture and tourism. And it is our job to connect you directly with Asia’s world city.

With a strong rule of law bolstered by an independent judiciary, English as a business language and a low and simple taxation system, doing business in Hong Kong has never been easier or more accessible. Home to one of the busiest global international airports and seaports, world-class international cruise terminal and major land crossings into Mainland China, we are the best connected city in the world and operate as a gateway to some of the world’s biggest and fastest-growing economies.

This impressive network will grow even further in the months and years ahead. The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will cut the journey time between Hong Kong and Zhuhai or Macao to less than an hour. The Hong Kong section of the Express Rail Link will slash the journey time between Guangzhou and Hong Kong to 48 minutes, connecting Hong Kong to China's extensive national rail network.

Through these mega projects, we remain not only a key destination but also the best conduit to markets in China and throughout Asia, as well as to greater opportunities arising from the unprecedented Belt and Road Initiative and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area development.

If you would like to know how Hong Kong can benefit your business, enrich your experience, bring you enjoyment or give you new ideas, please read our e-newsletter "Hong Kong Connect", contact us or follow our Facebook page "Hong Kong in Australia and New Zealand" or visit our LinkedIn page.

Hong Kong House in Sydney is also home to Invest Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and the Hong Kong Tourism Board. Our offices are happy to provide you with all up-to-date information on our city and activities including seminars, workshops and events so that you can engage with Hong Kong and discover how it can boost your business.
