Hong Kong Currency and Economy
Hong Kong’s currency is the HK Dollar. There are many banks and ATMs in Hong Kong, and moneychangers are everywhere. Always check the exchange rate and the service fee before your hand over your foreign exchange. Customers with AMEX, VISA and Master cards can draw HK currency through ATMs directly.
Hong Kong is today one of the world's leading international financial centers. The country boasts a service-oriented economy, with almost free port trade and low taxation. Hong Kong’s economy is highly dependent on international trade and finance, and is backed by a sound banking system, no public debt, good foreign exchange reserves (US $408 billion by June 2017) and a strong legal system. Close ties with mainland China and strict anti-corruption measures forms the backbone of Hong Kong’s government policies. Hong Kong is one of the largest ports in the world, and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange is the sixth largest in the world.
