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.

In the economic environment, Hong Kong has faced the Asian financial turmoil

in 1997. But now, the overall economic condition progressively improved. Later,

China will be a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Hong Kong will

gain a lot of business opportunity in different trades, such as banking, insurance,

telecommunication. Those businesses need the new management for their future. For

example, they must plan the new organizationÐŽ¦s goals, or they estimate the demand of

human resources in the future. However, this phenomenon will disappear very soon

problems. This provides a good atmosphere between the manager and the employee.

Besides the external environment, the internal environment includes workforce,

work/task demand and incentive system.

About the workforce in Hong Kong, there are many different racial people who

work in the same company. Although they work in the same company, the company

may have different management for them. It is because their culture are so many

different. Also, some of the companies have been globalization. The management of
