Hong Kong has no natural resources, except one of the finest deep- water ports in the world. A hardworking, adaptable and well-educated workforce of about 3.5 million, coupled with entrepreneurial flair, is the bedrock of Hong Kong's productivity and creativity.

Dinning Tips Reservations It is good idea to make reservations especially during lunchtime, as restaurants are usually busy. On the weekends an advance booking is advisable especially in the more up market restaurants. To check a phone number, dial directory enquiries on 108-1. Or you can pick up a copy of a Guide to Quality Shops and Restaurants for information on QTS-accredited restaurants. Dress Code Casual wear is acceptable in most restaurants.
