Business climate is more difficult to summarize. You often need to read a variety of articles and build your own picture. Below are some useful resources for finding articles.

Try searching for "Hong Kong" and "business" and "trends" or "markets" or "finance." Also try limiting your search to the last few months. Expand your search to include China if you aren't finding as much information as you would like.
