Default why does it take more than 2 years from Hong Kong?

This is what I found from CIC web site:
Responsible
for immigrant
applications
from: Hong Kong, Macao



As you see, the Consulate General in Hong Kong is only responsible for
applications from Hong Kong and Macao, why does it still take more than 2
years for the immigration process?

I don't even think there are whole lots of Hong Kong or Macao people wanna
move to Canada at this moment. Any idea please?

Hi
It is taking 2 Yrs from USA in many cases. If it is ... 2 Yrs from HongKong( ...considering the pressure on the Consulate) then, i think its OK! I am sure you will agree with me.

Hi,
I am Indian citizen applied Canada Immgration (Independent category & non-resident of HK) from Hong Kong in Oct 1999. Apart from my file no. (in Dec 1999) and initial assessment in Jan 2000 ( saying that I have to attend interview) I did not receive any notification whatsoever.
I would like to know how much time it would take for my processing?
I am working in USA from last 2 years in IT( I updated my file in July 2001 with marriage status and USA experience and in July 2002 with my new employer and experience), is there any chance for interview waiver?

Thanks
Rahul

The reason is that HK is swamped with out of jurisdiction applications and
until backlog is cleared processing times will be unfortunately long.
