Summary

This Third Edition of the classic, introductory text on Hong Kong's business and investment environment is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how and why the territory's free-market system works in the 1990s. Interdisciplinary in its approach, the book provides a comprehensive guide to the economic, financial, legal, political, and social underpinnings of Hong Kong's rapidly shifting business landscape. Featuring the best elements and distinctive traits of the previous editions, this new text further probes the fascinating question of Hong Kong's future economic role and incorporates the most up-to-date developments and issues surrounding the transfer to Chinese sovereignty in 1997. The authors examine the impact on business conditions of imminent Chinese government rule and outline institutional and structural reforms that will help sustain Hong Kong's position as a major world business centre.
