This article attempts to outline the current economic and cultural environment in which management development operates in Hong Kong and to demonstrate the potential barriers which exist to the expansion of management development provisions and the acceptance of process. We review and evaluate management training and development provision in the territory using data from a recent survey. An attempt is made to identify the ways in which the barriers to management development in Hong Kong might be overcome and thus how Hong Kong′s managers might be better prepared for the potentially different world which may emerge post‐1997 after the take‐over by the People′s Republic of China.
