Enterprise Florida’s Export Sales Mission to Hong Kong and Guangzhou, China

Location: Hong Kong and Guangzhou, China

Enterprise Florida, Inc. will lead an Export Sales Mission to Hong Kong and Guangzhou, China from June 1 to June 9, 2018. Hong Kong and Guangzhou are two strong and vibrant export markets for U.S. companies. U.S. goods exported to China in 2015 were $116.2 billion, and U.S. exports of services to China were an estimated $42.5 billion in 2014 (latest data available). As a result of China’s increasing domestic consumption and growing middle class, significant market potential exists for companies focused on collaboration and mutual benefit, especially in sectors such as energy efficiency, clean technology, healthcare, and e-commerce.

Hong Kong is an ideal platform for doing business in Asia, especially mainland China. Hong Kong is a free port that does not levy any customs tariff and has limited excise duties. Its strong rule of law and respect for property rights make it a strategic platform for U.S. companies, especially small- and medium-sized firms, seeking to do business in Asia.
