Hong Kong

In 2004 Hong Kong had 7.258 skyscrapers. This made it the world number one in terms of number of skyscrapers.

Hong Kong's position as one of the world's most important economic centers is based on several factors.

It is located midway between Japan and Singapore, and it lies astride the main shipping and air routes of the western Pacific.

It also has long served as a major port of entry and trade for China, which uses Hong Kong as a primary link to the world economy.

Furthermore, Hong Kong has a favorable atmosphere for business and trade.

Hong Kong's economy has always been based upon commerce, trade, and shipping, and at the beginning of the new millenium it vies with Singapore as the world's largest container port.
