Hong Kong GDP Growth Slows in Q4

Hong Kong GDP Grows Slightly Less than Anticipated
The economy of Hong Kong expanded 2.8 percent quarter-on-quarter in the third quarter of 2020, slightly less than initial estimates of a 3 percent rise. Still, it is the first quarter of expansion in since early 2019, and the strongest growth rate in 11 years as the economy attempts to rebound from the coronavirus crisis. The near-term outlook will hinge critically on the local COVID-19 situation. Provided that the local epidemic remains well contained, domestic economic activities will likely see further modest improvement in Q4. Latest government forecasts point to a 6.1 percent drop in GDP for 2020.

Hong Kong Quarterly GDP Growth Strongest in 11 Years
The economy of Hong Kong grew 3 on quarter in the three months to September, preliminary estimates showed. It is the first quarter of expansion in since early 2019, and the strongest growth rate in 11 years as the economy attempts to rebound from the coronavirus crisis. Looking ahead, a "continued recovery of the Chinese economy should render support to Hong Kong's exports in the coming few months. Also, global demand and trade flows will further improve if the recovery of the major advanced economies sustains. COVID-19 will remain a major downside risk to the global and local economy until effective vaccines are widely available. The tourism industry is unlikely to see a swift rebound with widespread travel restrictions in place. The evolving China-US relations, heightened geopolitical tensions, and the possibility of a disorderly Brexit also add to uncertainties", a Government spokesman said.

Hong Kong GDP Contracts 0.1% QoQ in Q2
The economy of Hong Kong contracted 0.1 percent on quarter in the three months to June of 2020, following a record 5.3 percent slump in the previous period, final estimates showed. The coronavirus pandemic was largely under control in May and June, and the recovery in mainland China has helped to partly offset the external headwinds facing Hong Kong's exports of goods. Private consumption decline moderated (-3.8 percent vs -7.2 percent in Q1) while government spending grew (1.8 percent vs 3.5 percent in Q1). Export of goods rose 6.5 percent (vs -9 percent in Q1) while those of services slumped 17 percent (vs -16.3 in Q1). Meantime, imports of goods increased 1.8 percent (vs -6.6 percent in Q1), while those of services plunged 24 percent (vs -20 percent in Q1). Year-on-year, the economy shrank 9 percent, after contracting 9.1 percent in the prior period.
