While most people think that the financial sector is the pillar of Hong Kong ’ s economy, local industrial and trade activities actually account for 25% of Hong Kong ’ s GNP, exactly doubling that of the financial and insurance sectors. The achievements of Hong Kong industries today are the fruits of decades of trial and tribulations, and experiences gained from overcoming crisis of different eras. The burst of the financial bubble confirms that the industrial sector is by far the most stable. Hong Kong, with an external oriented economy that focusses on marketing its merchandise overseas, is still reliant on the industrial sector and supporting services to lead Guangdong into becoming the country ’ s fastest economic growing province.
