Career Prospect:

Nearly one in two accountants in Hong Kong earns HK$50,000 a month, according to the poll conducted by The Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) in March 2016. Demand for accountants has increased in recent years as the need for more manpower in compliance and risk management grew. (The South China Morning post, Aug 2016)  


Moreover, promoting investment and trade co-operation and financial integration are two of the five aspects the "One Belt, One Road" Initiative aims at. With many Chinese businesses “going out” and the increase of investment and merger acquisition activities generated by the Initiative, it is believed there will be a surge in demand for respective services, especially financial, investment and logistic services in Hong Kong.  (RESEARCH, HKTDC, 2015)
