838 words - 3 pages

Hong Kong is the most suitable place for business. It is characterized by its

high degree of internationalization, business friendly environment, rule of law, free

trade and free flow of information, open and fair competition. Therefore, the business

management is a very important part in the business. The management of Hong Kong

includes the external environment and the internal environment.

The external environment includes the economic environment, labour market

and social environment.

employee has working experience, the employee would do the job faster and easily

since the employee has the same working experience. Therefore, most of the Hong

years working experience. This is the present of human resources management in

Hong Kong.

been divorced. As a result, there are many single parent families in Hong Kong. The
