Abstract:Foreign investment has always been vital to the economy of Hongkong. Actually, hongkong was founded by British traders in the nineteenth century. In the 1950's, the Chinese entrepreneurs who came from Mainland China helped convert Hongkong from an entrepot port to an industrial city. Later, American investors who came in the late 1960's were responsible for initiating the electronics industry, which has since then become a major component of Hongkong's export, in addition to the garments and textile industry. Hongkong is still depending on and will continue to rely on foreign investment for its success and economic prosperity. The United States, in particular, is vital to the economy of Hongkong, given its position as the leading importer of Hongkong's export.
