In 2010, the Hong Kong government launched a series of policies to deal with the financial crisis and the challenges of weakening external demand brought about by european debt crisis, these policies include the introduction of tax reform plan, reducing taxing low-income people and enhance their consumption ability, providing SMEs with assistance to remain unemployment rate stable (Bajun, 2016).The introduction of these policies made the situation of Hong Kong's economy recovered obviously, it is also beneficial for increasing the internal consumption in Hong Kong market, creating favorable conditions for the development of Coca-Cola in Hong Kong.

Recently, the outlook for the global economy is still weak in the near future. Hong Kong's exports will remain declined, but its internal demand keeps a steady growth, which is the main force driving Hong Kong's economic growth (Euromonitor International Report, 2016). Compared with last year, Hong Kong's GDP has increased by 2.4% in 2015, the domestic demand remained increasing and the private consumption expenditure has increased by 4.3% more than the prior year. The stability of employment and income, as well as implementation of infrastructure projects in Hong Kong, in future, Hong Kong's local consumer demand is expected to be further expanded (Bajun, 2016).
In terms of prices, basic consumer price inflation rate fell from 2.7% in the first quarter of 2015 to 2.5% in the second quarter, which was the lowest level since the first quarter of 2011 (Euromonitor International Report, 2016).
