We need Cepa because our economy was severely hit by the financial crisis worldwise. At that time, our export dropped drastically, and revenue from tourism decreased as few tourists, especially those from western countries, came to Hong Kong. Retails businesses were in great difficulties. Unemployment rate was on an increase. HKSAR therefore reached an agreement with the Central Government, allowing more HK goods to be exported/ sold in China with little or no taxation. More mainland people were allowed to visit Hong Kong to boost our retail industries. Cepa is a gift to HK and it has benefitted HK's economy a lot. With Cepa, HK economy has gradually recovered.
