HK Economy - Highlight
18 Oct 2016
Investments from foreign and domestic enterprises are flowing into western China to capitalise on the pool of tech talent and ample resources there. These have facilitated Chengdu in Sichuan province and its neighbouring Chongqing municipality to develop as China’s leading modern manufacturing hubs. The huge demand in the region for production inputs and supporting services has elicited vast opportunities for relevant Hong Kong companies.
In an interview with the HKTDC, Sam Lam, the founder of Hong Kong-based mPay Limited, discussed how his company could help online merchants lower the transaction fees and administrative burden by offering a one-stop solution that consolidates their sales orders obtained from different payment options, including both international and China-specific payment gateways.
Hong Kong's engineers are active in exporting their services to the region, particularly the Chinese mainland. In the construction sector, major types of professional engineering services that are currently being exported include project management, building services work and engineering consulting.
