The healthcare sector in Hong Kong
and in the rest of China is very attractive for foreign investors
. Recent reforms undertaken by the Chinese Government have encouraged the expansion of this business field, especially in the area of private healthcare
. Investors in Hong Kong interested in healthcare are allowed to have full foreign ownership, compared to the previous rule for only 30% ownership.

The health sector in Hong Kong
Foreign investors in Hong Kong have multiple options for investing in healthcare. The privatization of public hospitals is encouraged in the city and Mainland China and investors can sometimes engage in the complete privatization of these units. Another option is to choose to engage in the development of new hospitals.
Hospitals are not the only option for investments. Hong Kong has a highly developed healthcare system that also includes rehabilitation and long-term care facilities. Other options can include investments in information systems for hospitals or technological solutions.
