Hong Kong is one of the world's leading financial centres. It has a service-oriented economy, with services accounting for over 90% of its GDP. It is characterised by low taxation, near-free port trade and a well-established international financial market. It maintains a reputation of being one of the world’s freest economies, based on its ease on business, trade, investment, finance, property rights and labour. Even though Hong Kong trades with the whole of the world, mainland China has long been Hong Kong's primary trading partner, accounting for about half of Hong Kong's exports’ value.
In 1984, ING Wholesale Banking (WB) extended their network to Hong Kong by opening its first branch there. Currently, it is a fully licensed bank under the Banking Ordinance of Hong Kong and employs over 100 financial experts.
