Geography, Climate & Languages

Hong Kong lies on the Southern coast of China, and is composed of:

Hong Kong Island, the economic heart of HK comprises 7%

Kowloon, 3.5% and is densely populated

the New Territories, and numerous outlying islands, occupying a total area of approximately 1100 sq. km constitute 91% of Hong Kong’s total land area.

Hong Kong's climate generally warm and pleasant.

Temperature can drop below 10 degrees Celsius in winter and exceed 31 degrees in summer.

About 80% of the rainfall occurs between May and September.

Chinese and English are the two official languages in Hong Kong.

Ninety Five percent of the population speaks Cantonese, the southern Chinese dialect. English is spoken and understood by many people in Hong Kong and is used by the government and in courts.

Strong Economy

Hong Kong is one of the top ten trading economies in the world with an annual trade of more than US$400 billion. Hong Kong has the world's second highest per capita holding of foreign currency.

It is the second largest source of outward foreign direct investment in Asia.

It has the world's fifth largest foreign exchange reserves holding.

It is the world's ninth largest (sixth, if EU countries are regarded as one entity) trading economy and The world's ninth largest exporter of commercial services.

Hong Kong has the world's busiest airport in terms of international cargoes and the world's busiest container port. It is Asia's largest gold bullion market, the fourth largest in the world.

Hong Kong’s stock exchange is Asia's second largest stock market, the 9th largest in the world.

It is also Asia's third largest foreign exchange market in terms of turnover, the 7th in the world.

Wealth Creation

Much of Hong Kong was developed in the last 25 years, largely as it discovered wealth creation opportunities.

City grew vertically to become one of the biggest financial centers of the world.

One of the world's largest most efficient ports

Asian headquarters of several MNCs

Gateway to companies manufacturing in China

One of the world's busiest tourist destinations

A thriving real estate industry.

World Class Infrastructure

Absolute marvel called the HK airport.

Airport Express Train seamlessly integrates with the arrivals area, where the passengers are whisked away to the city.

The city has a clockwork precise underground metro network, an air-conditioned public bus system, mini buses, ferries to connect various islands and a tram network.

Despite being one of the most affluent places on earth, 90% of Hong Kong's population uses the public transport to get around.

Public roads are congested but traffic jams are rare due to excellent flyovers, tunnels and signaling systems.

Despite heavy rains every year, the roads never have potholes as they often crop up in India as the technology used for road building is different.

Efficiency

Everything in Hong Kong works.

Government offices open at precise times, they are well staffed, and government officials are as driven to help as say that in a private MNC bank, technology is used to the extent possible and is constantly upgraded.

Any government process that seems redundant and long is constantly evaluated and refreshed based on people's feedback.

To give an example, Hong Kong's residents do not get their passports stamped upon arriving or leaving Hong Kong. They simply touch their smart cards at unmanned counters to pass.

Corruption cases are rare and when discovered, punished severely.

Culture

While not as cosmopolitan as New York and London, HK tries to encourage cultural activities with a lot of support from the government.

State owned venues are world-class, and often hosts plays, concerts, film festivals and performances from around the world. While the focus in HK is on business, the government realizes the need for culture in the city to prevent it from becoming an urban ghetto.

Environment

One of the lesser known facts about Hong Kong is that nearly 40 per cent of its land area is reserved as country parks. Global images of HK are usually about the skyline and the skyscrapers.

But Hong Kong has wonderful natural trials, forest areas, hiking routes that are dotted around the city.

The mountainous terrain and the stunning ocean often give stunning views from various points across the city.

What are Migration Jobs?

  1. Migration Jobs are those occupations which are considered in demand by the government itself.
  2. Some skills or expertise cannot be sourced locally. They need to be imported.
  3. So the government encourages those workers or professionals with a specific profile to come and settle in the country.
  4. In this case, the government is the sponsor of your permanent visa.
  5. Y-Axis is the first jobsite to identify these kind of vacancies and post them on a jobsite.
  6. To apply for a migration job, you should first find out if you are eligible.
  7. If you are, you should file a petition with the Migration Authority of that country.
  8. The time could range from 1 month to 3 years.
  9. But once your petition is approved, you get a visa which is called a Permanent Resident(PR) Visa or what is also popularly known as a Green Card.
  10. This visa offers you work authorization and the allows you to come with your family and settle down.
  11. You will need to come into the country to find the actual job.
  12. The advantage you will have as a jobseeker is that you will be able to apply for job which otherwise would not have been open to you.
  13. So study a Migration Job if you find one.
  14. Ask Y-Axis to technically evaluate you before you can invest in the migration petition.
  15. But it is certainly the smartest way to apply for an overseas job.
