Hong Kong has achieved remarkable rates of growth and improvements in living standards. The interpretation of this at the level of politics, culture, human capital and business organization is less obvious. For all Hong Kong's performance, vulnerabilities remained and fresh ones have come to light. As the contributors to this volume make clear, Hong Kong faces a new, or renewed, set of challenges linked to the up-grading of human resources, shifts in industrial structure, and emerging market demands. The contributors examine and analyze aspects of business and management in Hong Kong including: systemic adaptability and entrepreneurship; education and training; cross-cultural variations in the generation and meanings of organizational commitment; and contrasting international human resource management practices and ways of managing people in the retail sector.
