Hong Kong: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   HK2022-0084

Despite its small population of 7.4 million, Hong Kong is the seventh-largest export market for U.S. consumer-oriented agricultural products. Hong Kong remains an attractive market for innovative U.S. food and beverage products as well as a gateway to the region. In 2022, ongoing pandemic-related quarantine requirements imposed on inbound travelers continued to temper tourism, in-person business activities, and domestic food demand and imports. The Hong Kong government has launched multiple measures to help local residents and businesses cope with the consequences of COVID-19. In September 2022, the city began to relax its entry requirements and further eased social distancing restrictions bringing some additional relief to business activities. The relaxation of pandemic measures in mainland China at the end of 2022 is expected to facilitate the return of cross border travel and the recovery of Hong Kong’s economy and demand for food imports in 2023.
