    The Asian Pacific region continues to be one of the main drivers of global growth, with many countries in the region averaging growth rates of above 5%. The region also continues to attract significant amounts of FDI and portfolio investment, with both
    Hong Kong and Singapore improving their dominant positions as leading financial centres in the region. Hong Kong has always been consistently attracting foreign investment by projecting itself as a gateway to China. This status and role of Hong Kong has not diminished even after the hand-over of Hong Kong to China. Currently, China and Hong Kong are undergoing major structural reforms in their economies, with a common tendency to move up the value chain. One of the side effects of these developments is the extension of their bilateral double tax treaty network. This is the context within double tax treaties have to be understood.

    Moreover, a recent development influencing the double tax treaty network and the local tax policy is the increasing interface between tax and non-tax agreements. In addition, the main influence that is going to shape the international tax arrangements in the region over the next decade will be the base erosion and profit shifting initiative (“BEPS”) of the G20/OECD. This project was launched in 2013 and the 15 action points foreseen in the November 2013 report are due for completion by the end of 2015.

    Against this rich canvass, this book examines the international law that governs taxation in Hong Kong and sets a comparison to Mainland China. In this respect, the contributors discuss the developments and directions of Hong Kong’s foreign economic policy. The analyses are presented by leading international tax law experts. In addition, this book identifies gaps and the need for changes, and relates the legal framework to economic issues surrounding transnational business operations including the economic rationale for protection of foreign investments.

    This volume is the result of a research project supported by the Eurasia-Pacific Uninet that had awarded a research grant for a project on the regulation of Europe-China tax regime to the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law at Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). The WU Global Tax Policy Center directed by Prof. Jeffrey Owens and the Centre for Financial Regulation and Economic Development (CFRED) directed by Prof. Julien Chaisse, in the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Faculty of Law, also contributed to the research project. It also brought together academics, practitioners, and tax officials from Europe, China, and Hong Kong. A key result was the International Conference held in Hong Kong on 19 June 2014 jointly organised by the CUHK Centre for Financial Regulation and Economic Development, the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law and the WU Global Tax Policy Center.
