    India could have been one alternative, if not for our incompetent stupid PM who is busy playing with peacocks.

    2:27 Shanghai Hongqiao Airport is a domestic-focused airport, just like Toronto City Airport. Shanghai's main international airport is called Shanghai Pudong International airport, which has *210 destinations*, the highest in Asia. WSJ intentionally ignored that fact.

    Taipei (Taiwan) or Busan (Korea), or more expensive Kobe-Kioto or Kitakyūshū-Fukuoka (Japan) (Singapore is in middle ASEAN, a littel far away from the electronic hub of China-Taiwan-Korea-Japan (partly Singapore)

    U can consider India as another option. Because India has a huge developing market. And also big tech companies like Microsoft, GOOGLE, Amazon, Adobe, IBM are working in India.
    U can consider cities like Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida etc here cheap and skilled developers are available

    Far easier doing Business with China from Hong Kong. For that reason alone Hong Kong will prosper.
    This is mainly USA wishful thinking.

    Companies are not leaving because of the national security law, but because of the mess and ongoing instability caused by the HK rioters. The reason of HK's prosperity in the past is because of its unique role and location between the West and Mainland China. I guess some companies may move to Singapore and some others may move to inland China like Shanghai or Shenzhen if China opens up more.

    A very bias report. How does the new security law hinders HK businesses when rival cities like Spore, Taiwan and Sydney have tougher security laws?

    I think for media companies, South Korea might be a good option. They rank the highest in Asia for press freedom index (source: https://rsf.org/en/ranking_table). Many Koreans also learn English so whilst their general level of English may not be superb like Singapore, it's definitely not an unfamiliar language. NY Times recently relocated a part of its HK office to Seoul so it's definitely feasible.

    Why HK is HK today is largely because it was the front office and hub for any western company to access Chinese market. HK sits on the capital flow in and out of the mainland. You can move to Singapore or Tokyo all right, what about the market.

    Tokyo has the largest stock market in Asia, already a economical hub along with NY and london, excellent infrastructure, stable currency and banking system, city with the highest no. Of HQ among the fortune 500 companies. Language isn't an issue as translators are gaining a lot of popularity and solving that problem, free press, uncensored internet,and even foreign investment is gaining traction. I'd chose Tokyo.
