Abstract

The Asia-Pacific region has the fastest growing market for Information Technology (IT) products and services. Hong Kong is the eleventh largest trading economy in the world and is the world’s second busiest container port. This paper will look at the information technology environment in Hong Kong and compare with the other three little dragons: Singapore, Taiwan and South Korean wherever appropriate. This paper first discusses the role and utilization of IT in the government and compares with Singaporean and South Korean government. It then gives an overall picture of the IT environment in Hong Kong. Lastly, a more in-depth comparison between Singapore IT manpower and training will be discussed.
