Since its handover from the UK to the People's Republic of China on 30 June 1997, Hong Kong has been struck by a number of crises. This paper reports the results of an empirical investigation of how Hong Kong companies prepare for crisis. The research design was based on a replication and extension of a study originally conducted in the USA. Analysis of data collected through a survey of senior executives revealed that 21 Hong Kong companies had a crisis management plan (CMP). The rationale for crisis planning, and characteristics of structural components of the CMP, including both the crisis management team and crisis communication plan, are discussed.
