Linkedin has announced this week the opening of a new office in Hong Kong which is it 25th globally and 9th in the Asia Pacific region.

A company statement released on Tuesday by Linkedin informed the world that the establishment of a local presence in Hong Kong reflected the company’s continued growth in the Asian region.

There are currently over 25 million users of Linkedin in the Asia region and it opened an office in Singapore last May which currently serves as its regional headquarters. They also have offices in Tokyo, Bangalore, Melbourne and Perth within the region with several local language sites such as Japanese and Korean.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our footprint in the region at a time when professionals in Hong Kong are placing a growing emphasis on social media,” said Arvind Rajan, LinkedIn’s managing director and vice president for Asia-Pacific and Japan.

“With more than 2,400 regional company offices and over 1,300 regional headquarters, Hong Kong’s skilled talent base and reputation as a leading international center of finance and business make it an important market for LinkedIn, given our aim is to connect the world’s talent with opportunity.”

The Hong Kong office will support around 500,000 users in the territory and currently employs around 6 people.
