150 years of being under British rule means there are strong trade links between the UK and Hong Kong.
It is believed that there are over 20,000 Brits living in Hong Kong, many of them young, single professionals who still have strong family ties back “home”.
The colonial relationship between the two countries has also resulted in tens of thousands of Hong Kong-born people coming to the UK, particularly as English is a language shared between the two nations.
A member of the World Trade Organisation, Hong Kong is considered one of the world's most significant financial centres and houses the operational centres of many global industries.
There is also strong demand for British-made products in this geographic area, which has the formal title of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. Clearly, it is also a highly significant gateway to mainland China too.
All this adds up to a lot of parcels passing backwards and forwards, including gifts, personal items, consumer goods and a wide range of other deliveries.
