Q: In China, is it sometimes necessary to move a company to Hong Kong?

Certain restrictions can lead to companies moving - take Google, we're all familiar with that.  Could other companies, like this site for example, move somewhere else in order to avoid certain restrictions?  Should they?

And this thread is totally related to China.  In China, Chinese, China China.

I think it is common for companies to at least have a registered mailing address in Hong Kong when they do business in China. There are some loopholes that can be beneficial by being present in Hong Kong. Import/Export to China can be easier through Hong Kong, actually being allowed to set up business can be done through a daughter company in Hong Kong and may become easier that way. Some companies will use the Hong Kong office as owner of any intellectual property and for administration and only use China as a factory keeping the requirements for white collar workers in China at a minimum.

Yes, Before 1949, many companies moved to Hong Kong.  Now they move back.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
