ASIAROPE International Round at Sha Tin, Hong Kong | May 25 - 28, 2024



| WHERE IS THE EVENT?


Hong Kong is a vibrant city and a major gateway to Mainland China. This page will give you the facts about Hong Kong - from the form of government to the languages used.


At the southeastern tip of China, Hong Kong covers Hong Kong Island, Lantau Island, the Kowloon Peninsula, and the New Territories, including 261 outlying islands. Between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula lies Victoria Harbour, one of the world's most renowned deep-water harbors.


Hong Kong's economy is characterized by free trade, low taxation, and minimum government intervention. It is the world's 10th largest trading economy, with the mainland of China as its most significant trading partner. Hong Kong is also a major service economy, with particularly strong links to mainland China and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region.
