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.
