The Complexities of Importing into Hong Kong

Hong Kong is considered a free port, meaning there are no taxes or duties on imported items. Due to it being a free port Hong Kong has long been regarded as the West’s gateway to China. However, extensive compliance is still required when trading with Hong Kong, particularly when goods are encrypted. With almost all the West’s biggest companies housing their data centers here Hong Kong has seen a boom in the technology sector. Despite recent concerns over the safety of client data in Hong Kong, the Technology industry continues to thrive and grow with many large companies choosing to keep their key datacentres situated here.
