Africans in Hong Kong constitute a small number of total residents in Hong Kong. There are approximately 20,000 immigrants from Africa who live in the city, 3,000 of whom are permanent residents.

Population[edit]

The majority of African immigrants in Hong Kong are businessmen, who sell mobile phones and electronic devices in Chungking Mansions, in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.[1][2] 5% of the Africans living in Hong Kong are refugees.[3]

Many African immigrants live near the large Chungking Mansions bazaar. Here, some expatriates founded the African Committee of Hong Kong, the first and only state-sponsored organization serving the interests of Hong Kong's African residents.[3]
