This case discusses Hong Kong's transformation from a pure manufacturing economy to a knowledge-based service economy. The case highlights the mismatch between the skills of the workforce and the needs of industry and offers solutions on how to bridge this skills gap; specifically how Hong Kong companies could attract talented, specialised professionals. The case also focuses on Hong Kong's population policies: the Admission of Talents Scheme and the Admission of Mainland Professionals Scheme. Both initiatives aim to bring in people from outside Hong Kong with specialised expertise to enhance the competitiveness of the territory's economy and reinforce its position as a sophisticated service centre.
