Attract Businesses and Talents

Hong Kong is one of the most competitive economies in the world.  It is also an important gateway connecting the Mainland with global markets which offers vast opportunities for businesses to expand and talents to grow.  To further enhance our competitiveness, the Government in the 2022 Policy Address announced a number of measures to attract enterprises to set up and invest in Hong Kong as well as to facilitate talents to work and live in the city:

- Set up the Office for Attracting Strategic Enterprises (OASES) to attract strategic enterprises to Hong Kong with targeted and attractive special facilitation measures;

- Set up a Talents Service Unit (TSU) to co-ordinate work for recruiting talents and provide them with one-stop support;
- Set up Dedicated Teams for Attracting Businesses and Talents in 17 Mainland Offices and overseas Economic and Trade Offices to proactively reach out to target enterprises and talents;
- Establish the $30 billion Co-Investment Fund to attract enterprises to set up operations in Hong Kong and invest in their businesses;
- Launch Top Talent Pass Scheme to attract talents of high salary and graduates of the world's top 100 universities to pursue careers in Hong Kong;
- Allow eligible talents from outside Hong Kong to, upon becoming permanent residents, apply for a refund of the extra stamp duty paid for purchasing residential property locally;
- Enhance existing talents admission schemes to better attract talents.
