Foreign workers flock to Hong Kong

As Europe struggles with austerity, Asian city becomes bastion of economic hope.

    While Europe struggles with economic cuts in its age of austerity, Hong Kong is fast becoming a bastion of economic hope.

    The Asian city, which boasts a rising stock market, has seen a massive influx of professional workers from all over the world.

    Foreigners in search of employment there used to be known by the unfortunate acronym "FILTH" - which stands for "Failed in London, Try Hong Kong".

    But as Rob McBride reports from Hong Kong, that strategy appears to have worked for many.
