HK Economy - Highlight
21 June 2016
China’s 13th Five-Year Plan calls for innovation to enhance the competitiveness of various industries and to help private enterprises move towards higher value-added businesses amid intensified global competition. Such policies are expected to boost China’s demand for technology and related services. With advantages like access to foreign technology, free flow of information and capital and strength in commercialisation, Hong Kong is well placed to capitalise on such increasing demand.
Famous for its well-designed balance of minimalism, functionality and eco-friendliness, Nordic designs are increasingly regarded as a winning formula for sustainable business growth. Hong Kong, given its close proximity to the production hub of southern China, has become a natural gathering point for Nordic companies to commercialise their innovative business ideas.
