|The Commercial Press (H.K.) Ltd.
has always committed itself to the promotion of culture and
education. Along with the new trends of the Information Age,
it integrates traditional publishing, distribution and retailing
with multimedia publishing and the Internet. The application
of computer technology has facilitated its diversification into
a trans-regional comprehensive multimedia publishing and marketing
New mode of publishing
While engaging in and building on traditional publishing of
printed books, we have ventured into multimedia publishing
and developed the world's first Chinese dictionary CD-ROM,
the Hanyu Dacidian CD-ROM 1.0, The Forbidden City CD-I (the
"International Emma Award" winner), Hong Kong Stamps
CD-ROM (the "SEYBOLD Award" winner), etc. We have
online digital publishing of e-books by which readers can
pay to read quality publications online. We have reference
tools and dictionaries with multiple search functions such
as the Hanyu Dacidian Network Version and the word bank of
the Commercial Press Education Website. We offer print-on-demand
service which makes possible the availability of rare out-of-print
New Modes of Retailing
Our retail shops and online sales network make us the largest
comprehensive bookstore in Hong Kong. Our 13/15 shops located
in every corner of Hong Kong sell over 100,000 worldwide titles
of all kinds. We also own retail shops in Singapore and Malaysia
selling books as well as Chinese stamps.
Applying advanced Internet technology and the SET payment
system, our online bookstore is a cross-regional and global
network, circulating all kinds of publications from over the
world. Our close association with The Commercial Press of
Beijing and Taiwan and the Sino United Publishing Group gives
us the advantage to become the only online bookstore in the
world to date to provide the most Chinese titles with stock
available for the Greater Chinese book market.
The Commercial Press has long been renowned for its compilation
of dictionaries. The recent establishment of a massive language
databank helps us keep abreast of the times in dictionary
compilation and contribute to language learning. At present,
success is achieved in the development of a Chinese word bank
with easy access and search functions. In the near future,
bilingual databanks will be developed to integrate with Chinese
other languages like English, Japanese, German, French and
