     The survey is conducted annually by the Department, in collaboration with Invest Hong Kong, to collect up-to-date information useful to the Government in formulating strategies for cultivating a favourable environment for conducting business in Hong Kong and further developing support services for existing and prospective investors from outside Hong Kong. Such information will help Invest Hong Kong better understand the needs of foreign companies in Hong Kong and tailor its promotions, both locally and overseas, of Hong Kong as a leading destination for foreign direct investment.

     The survey covers all companies in various economic sectors in Hong Kong that represent their parent companies located outside Hong Kong. A questionnaire has been sent earlier to the relevant companies.

     The survey is conducted under Part IIIA of the Census and Statistics Ordinance (Chapter 316) and notified in the Government Notice No. 1914 in the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Gazette of March 24, 2006 as a voluntary statistical survey. The said Ordinance stipulates that all collected information which may enable identification of individual companies should be kept in strict confidence and not be released to any unauthorised parties.

     The Department would like to thank those companies which have already returned the questionnaires; and appeal for the co-operation of other companies which have been selected in the survey by returning the completed questionnaires promptly, as their opinions are vital to the survey.

     To facilitate these companies in providing the information as requested, an electronic template of the questionnaire is available upon request.

     Where applicable, staff of the Department may phone or visit individual companies to offer assistance in completing the questionnaire. Whilst on duty, they will each carry an Enumerator Identity Card and a certificate for conducting the survey, which are available for inspection.
