COUNTRY PROFILEIssue 2 | 2012 www.50exhibition-world.netReasons organisers like Hong Kong. It's bilingual. Protected intellectual property rights. Infrastructure, public transport and air links. Low tax rate. Reach half the world's population in fi ve hours. Common laws. Insurance. Bankingtechnological innovation and education.

Qianhai, just south of Shenzhen, is destined to become an important service production centre for the entire Asia-Pacifi c Region, encouraging future growth in China's advanced logistics services, IT services, fi nancial services and showcasing Hong Kong/Guangdong region tertiary expertise.
