Imports_and_Exports_in_Hong_Kong.jpgHong Kong has one of the world’s largest trading economies and its strategic geographic position, along with the free trade economy policy and low taxation regime make Hong Kong an ideal location to base a business that operates in the imports and exports sector. Hong Kong is not only the main gateway to the inland Chinese market but it also handles a large amount of offshore trade.
A company that operates in the trade sector in Hong Kong or in China will need to obtain special permits and licenses for functioning. Our company formation representatives in Hong Kong can help you if you want to open this type of company in Hong Kong.
Our experts invite you to watch a video on importing and exporting goods in Hong Kong:

The products exported to Hong Kong are electronics, electrical appliances, gold, jewelry, machine parts, textiles, fabrics, toys, watches, and clocks. Hong Kong has an export-oriented economy that is heavily based on shipments coming from re-exports. Its main export partners are China, the United States, and the European Union.

Trade policy and logistics in Hong Kong

Hong Kong has a free trade policy and this means that this Special Administrative Region has no boundaries on trade. There are no customs tariffs on products and goods imported and exported from Hong Kong.
Companies in Hong Kong that engage in international trade activities need to follow certain procedures and observe the existing regulations for doing business in Hong Kong. Import and export activities require special licensing and our company formation agents in Hong Kong can help you obtain all the necessary documents from the Trade and Industry Department in Hong Kong and other relevant authorities. 
The agents at our company incorporation firm can help you with the common import and export documents, such as commercial documents, financial documents, transport or insurance documents. All of the trade-related documentation needs to be in order so that the Hong Kong company can perform its activities without any legal impediments.
If you want to invest in the trade sector in Hong Kong, please contact our company formation specialists in Hong Kong. We can help you open your company and run our business.
