Hong Kong people think health, friends and family are more important than money, according to a new survey. Mastercard International surveyed 13 countries in the region and found that despite the image of Asians being money-obsessed, wealth did not figure in the three most important things for people in almost every country. Nearly half of Hong Kong residents surveyed said that their health was their top priority, with only five per cent of respondents listing money as their top priority. A third said family and friends were the most important things, while eight per cent chose happiness. Respondents in every country named health as their top priority. But Hong Kong people appeared to be the most exhausted, with more than half of the respondents saying that if they received an extra hour a day they would spend it on getting more rest. Singaporeans, Malaysians and Taiwanese were the most family-oriented, with more than 65 per cent in each country saying that if they were given an extra hour a day they would spend it nurturing family ties. The most career-driven were mainlanders and Indians, who responded that they would work more if they had an extra hour. Only four per cent of Hong Kong people said they would do more charity work with an extra hour, while 33 per cent of mainlanders and 26 per cent of Taiwanese people said they would like more time for charity work. Japanese and Korean respondents said they gave the least amount of their income to charity. In Japan, 79 per cent of people said they gave nothing to charity, while 61 per cent of Koreans did likewise. In Hong Kong, 26 per cent of people said they gave no money to charity and 65 per cent said they gave less than one per cent. Mastercard surveyed at least 400 people in each region for the survey, with a total of 5,469 respondents.
