Hong Kong's most important economic activity is international trade. A center for free trade, restrictions are minimal and the market regulates the country's exports and imports.
Though exports consist of goods produced in the country, re-exporting is the main component of its trade.
Canada has a long-standing and comprehensive relationship with Hong Kong in commerce and politics.
These two countries also share common values like human rights, individual freedom, rules of the law and deep-rooted historical ties.
The Canadian Consulate in Hong Kong promotes Canadian business and investment not only in Hong Kong, but also in Macao and as a gateway to business in China. The Consul supports over 250,000 Canadians living in Hong Kong.
