    Hong Kong's vibrant economic environment attracts business from all over the world. This new study examines topics that interest and touch every key economic sector from the business community to government. What are Hong Kong's strong suits as an economic centre and what are its weak areas? How do certain sectors measure up against other within Hong Kong and their counterparts in other places in the world? Why should a multinational business locate here rather than in Singapore or Tokyo? Is Hong Kong making full use of the resources which constitute its competitive advantage? The Hong Kong Advantage applies the Harvard Business School method for measuring economic competitiveness through an examination of selected industries and key issues, and is the first major economic review of this kind for Hong Kong. The book is timely and crucial reading for business people, journalists, analysts, and policy-makers.
