Occidental Hong Kong.
Every time a jumbo jet from Hong Kong lands at a Canadian airport an
estimated $500,000 filters into the economy right away. Hundreds of
thousands of Hong Kong Chinese have settled in Canada as the hand over
of their homeland to China draws near. In 1985, 7,380 immigrants came to
Canada from Hong Kong; by 1994, that figure had risen to 43,492. Many
Hon Kongers settle in British Columbia or Ontario. They maintain their
connections with South Asia and have helped Canada develop stronger
trade links with the Asia Pacific Region.
