2011 Annual Survey of Companies in Hong Kong Representing Parent Companies Located outside Hong Kong

     The Census and Statistics Department is conducting the 2011 Annual Survey of Companies in Hong Kong Representing Parent Companies Located outside Hong Kong, in collaboration with Invest Hong Kong.  The survey aims to collect 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.

     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.  These companies are requested to complete and return the questionnaire to the Department by June 30, 2011.

     Information to be sought in the survey includes general information relating to these companies and opinions of the management of these companies about conducting business in Hong Kong.

     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 the collected information relating to individual companies should be kept in strict confidence and will be used solely for statistical purposes.  Only aggregate information, which does not reveal details of individual companies, will be released.

     The Commissioner for Census and Statistics, Mr Fung Hing-wang, today (June 14) appeals to the management of these companies to spend a few moments to fulfil their social responsibilities by completing the questionnaire and returning it to the Department, as their opinions are vital to the survey.

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

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

     Enquiries regarding the survey can be directed to the Business Expectation Statistics Section of the Department (telephone: 3586 3933 or e-mail:
