Abstract

This paper is based on an investigation which has utilised data collected from ten different case studies related to Hong Kong. Each case study deals with issues and challenges facing Western expatriates residing in Hong Kong for the purposes of business. The interviews have been analysed carefully and commonalities, in terms of challenges, have been identified and form the basis for building a heuristic model. The heuristic model can help Westerners determine their Challenge Index. They can also perform a what-if analysis by altering the weightings of the factors or compare their situation with other fellow expatriates. It is envisaged that further work and research to enhance this model will be carried out as part of ongoing research in this area.
