“Asian Tigers” — Hong Kong and Singapore
Asia offers investors and entrepreneurs favorable conditions for registering companies. These are attractive tax regimes, convenient and reliable banking, as well as the stability of the legal and financial system.
Company registration in Asia is a great opportunity to get access to markets of the Pacific region. Traditionally, Asia attracts foreign businessmen with its following business centers: Hong Kong and Singapore.
Hong Kong is a special administrative region of the People's Republic of China, located on the Kowloon Peninsula. It is Southeast Asia's leading commercial and financial center, ranked the third largest global center after New York and London.
Hong Kong's economy is based on a free market, low taxation, and non-interference by the state. Thanks to very rapid economic growth, the region has become one of the four "Asian Tigers", along with Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan. Hong Kong is a free port with loose cash flows and a smoothly convertible Hong Kong dollar, which has been pegged to the US dollar since 1983.
Registering a company in Hong Kong offers great opportunities for business development and prosperity. A favorable investment climate, stable legislation loyal to non-residents, and a developed economy make the jurisdiction especially attractive for foreign entrepreneurs to open a business here.
