The Business Confidence Survey of 2018 provides a view on the current and future business climate in Hong Kong from a diverse set of primarily Swedish founded companies. The survey indicates that the current business climate is considered favourable, but that the upcoming three years will be relatively less favourable. Increasing prices of accommodation and office space continue to be widely regarded as the most important challenges when operating in Hong Kong. Legal framework & Transparency are considered to be Hong Kong’s most important advantages, closely followed by its Geographical location, Infrastructure & Communications. China remains the market that the majority of respondents consider among the three most interesting.
