From a study by Robert Levine who published a book called “A geography of time”. I came across this from a news article, but this site gives a bit more information about it. Hong Kong is in 10th place.

The first study is a comparison of 31 countries using a composite index composed of the accuracy of public clocks, walking speed and the time required to complete a simple business transaction: buying a stamp. The top five countries using this index of pace of life or time consciousness are in order (from fastest to slowest), Switzerland, Ireland, Germany, Japan and Italy.

Crazy, isn’t it? Would not have thought Ireland to have a fast pace of life.
