Hong Kong is a free market economy, in which businesses compete with each other in all aspects. Competition promotes efficiency and innovation. A competitive market provides incentives for businesses to offer products/services of better prices and quality for consumers.

The Competition Ordinance (Cap.619) introduced a cross-sector competition regime to Hong Kong and set out a framework for promoting competition and prohibiting anti-competitive practices. It is illegal to carry out certain business practices which undermine competition.
