Business expatriates from the Chinese mainland assigned to Hong Kong responded to a questionnaire regarding availability and usage of corporate career development activities. It was found that corporate development activities had a very low availability, indicating little interest on the part of the Chinese parent organizations to assist in the development of their expatriates’ careers. Comparing these findings with western expatriates in the territory, the Chinese expatriates were at a clear disadvantage. Nevertheless, those career development activities that were made available by the Chinese assigning organizations were well used.
