INTERNATIONAL: PRWeek survey puts HK salaries top of Asia chart

HONG KONG: Hong Kong-based PR professionals are among the best paid

in the world, with consultancy heads receiving salaries at least 37 per

cent higher than their UK counterparts, according to the first-ever

PRWeek Salary Survey in Asia.

A UK consultancy chairman receives on average £50,395 a year,

compared to more than £69,200 in Asia.

The disparity might be explained in part by the fact that Asian heads

have regional remits and therefore oversee more than one country.

However, consultancy board directors in the UK take home on average

£60,290 a year, while in Hong Kong, all of those surveyed also

earn more than £69,200.

In-house PR chiefs in the private sector also do better in Hong Kong

than in the UK.

The UK salary survey, published in March (PRWeek, 30 March), showed

public sector PROs were losing out to those in the private sector by

more than £8,000 a year.
