Dear Mr Lo
Potential Tax Treaty Partners for Hong Kong
Thank you for your letter of 29 December 2022 inviting the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce to provide suggestions on prospective jurisdictions that Hong Kong should actively pursue Comprehensive Avoidance of Double Taxation Agreements.
The Chamber feels very strongly about the need to scale up Hong Kong’s treaty network as the ability to do so has a direct and considerable impact on our attractiveness as a location for international businesses to conduct their operations. With the recent lifting of Covid-related restrictions, we are hopeful that substantive progress would be made in the near term to engage the jurisdictions as set out on the attached list, as well as successful conclusions to ongoing negotiations with Germany and Nigeria.
We hope you will find our recommendations useful
