(ii) formulate attractive special facilitation measures covering aspects such as land, tax and financing that are applicable exclusively to target enterprises, and provide them with tailor-made plans to facilitate the setting up of their operations in Hong Kong;
(iii) provide the employees of these target enterprises with one-stop facilitation services in areas such as visa application and education arrangement for their children.

Dedicated OASES Teams for Attracting Businesses and Talents to Strengthen Promotion in the Mainland and Overseas

Dedicated OASES Teams for Attracting Businesses and Talents have been set up across the Government’s Mainland Offices and overseas Economic and Trade Offices.

They will proactively reach out to target enterprises and talents, liaise with the world's top 100 universities and promote related schemes. They will also strengthen links with Hong Kong people studying or working in the Mainland or overseas, encouraging them to return to Hong Kong. Strategic enterprises are also welcome to approach the dedicated teams for assistance.
