WE MAKE DOING BUSINESS EASIER

The Chamber's core function is to lobby on behalf of businesses' interests to ensure the competitiveness and integrity of the Hong Kong business community. We regularly submit policy statements and proposals to enhance our business environment. We urge all members to contribute your views and suggestions on how we can hone Hong Kong's position as one of the best places in the world to do business.

The Government should take a holistic approach and focus on other approaches to reducing industrial accidents, instead of simply increasing penalties and fines.
