A: The non-residents may be appointed as directors of a limited company. But if the company secretary is an individual, should be an ordinarily resident in Hong Kong; if a body corporate, its registered office or place of business should be in Hong Kong.
Every private limited company must have at least one director and one secretary. If a company has only one director, the director shall not act as secretary of the company.
