City Attributes – Equality protected by law

Hong Kong upholds equality with laws that protect people against discrimination on the grounds of sex, race, disability and family status.
 
Ethnic minorities and expatriates from around the world live in harmony in the city and make up about 8 per cent of Hong Kong’s population of 7.38 million. 
 
Hong Kong also upholds gender equality, promotes women's advancement and advocates family-friendly employment practices. Women hold about one-third of senior government positions and about 30 per cent of private sector management positions.
 
Laws against unfair trade practices covering goods and services offer consumers greater protection, while local and international companies compete on an equal footing in Hong Kong's "nationality neutral" business environment.
