Hong Kong - Current Account

In the final quarter of the year, economic activity declined at the sharpest rate in over a decade. Plunging fixed investment and a frail external sector led the contraction, while private consumption dropped at a slightly softer pace in Q4 but remained depressed nonetheless. Turning to the first quarter, the economy is expected to remain battered amid the coronavirus outbreak which has paralyzed Chinese economic activity. The manufacturing PMI was stuck in negative territory in January despite reaching a six-month high; employment levels continued to tick down; and inflation is expected to intensify due to the coronavirus outbreak. Meanwhile, in politics, pro-democracy protests have seemingly taken a back seat as of late due to fears of the coronavirus spreading in Hong Kong, exacerbating uncertainty over a resolution to the current political turmoil.
