Hong Kong History

The Discover Hong Kong package tours Hong Kong Tourism website has a little history of the region - one of the world's most important cities despite the fact that Hong Kong was nothing more than a bunch of fishing villages only 160 years ago. Unlike other key world commerce capitals like New York, Paris, London, Beijing, etc, Hong Kong is relatively new and also sprung into being largely as the result of trade - often illegal - between China and the sprawling British Empire. In fact Hong Kong was under British control and protection until 1997 when the islands became a semi autonomous regio of China.

Although I lost most of my pictures from a Hong Kong visit in April here are a few Hong Kong Pictures mixed in with my China set.

Business Process Outsourcing Services India allows company executives to focus on their primary business areas. Executives traditionally spend more time managing details and have little time to establish ideas. BPO helps executives save time and focus on their customers by allowing them to explore new revenue streams, accelerate other projects, and focus on their customers. Productivity rises as a result of this. People that are more educated or skilled accomplish the activity more efficiently, increasing productivity. BPO not only helps to reduce costs, but it also helps to enhance productivity and income. Process improvements, reengineering, and the use of technology that minimize and bring administrative and other costs down are all feasible ways to save money.
