As you might expect in a bustling city such as Hong Kong, Asia's World City, the Swiss Community here consists of many successful and hard-working business people, mostly employed in the service industry. Many Swiss in Hong Kong work in finance, trade, retail and in the hospitality industry.
In the end of 2010, over 1'700 Swiss nationals were registered with this Consulate General, making Hong Kong the city with the most Swiss inhabitants in China by far. The Swiss community has been steadily growing over the last years and is expected to increase even more in the future.
Most of the Swiss stay in Hong Kong for a couple of years only. Often times they have been transfered here by their company and later move on to another place all over the world or go back to Switzerland. It is estimated that a turnover of the Swiss colony takes place every four years with rather few persons staying much longer.
The staff of the Consulate General of Switzerland is very happy to assist the Swiss Community in every possible way. We encourage the Swiss citizens in this consular district to play an active role in the "Swiss life" abroad. Join the Swiss Association, attend Swiss events such as our national day, be active within the local Swiss Chamber of Commerce and stay in touch with the Consulate General of Switzerland at all times.
