If you are in Hong Kong to do work, then you’re away on business. The word business can refer to the activities you perform for your job.The word business often refers to an occupation (like "she owns her own business") or a particular trade, like show business. Businesscan also describe an enterprise's financial goal, as in, a store that uses advertising to attract business, or its activity — like a store that does most of its business on weekends. It isn't always easy to run a business. In fact, it comes from the Old English word bisignis, which meant “anxiety."
