Hong Kong is quite a liberal debt market. International investors are free to invest in debt instruments issued in Hong Kong.

The range of product offerings, the open access for issuers and investors, both domestic and international, and the increasing significance of offshore RMB bond issuances make Hong Kong one of the most frequented international bond markets in Asia.
