Hong Kong is a unique, bustling city whose neon lights, crowded
storefronts, and towering skyscrapers are monuments to the entrepreneurial
spirit of the inhabitants of this city. Home to a population of over six
million, Hong Kong embraces the best of the East and West -- hard work,
discipline, and the rule of law. Over the past fifteen years, Hong Kong has
transformed itself from a low-cost manufacturer of inexpensive clothing and
toys into one of the world's premier trade, business, and financial centers.
Following its reversion to Chinese sovereignty last year, Hong Kong hopes to
maintain its role as the key port of entry for trade with the mainland.
