A better than expected growth
The GDP forecast for Hong Kong in 2017 remains strong as the city recorded a better than predicted economic boost: 3.8% in the second quarter of the year, compared to the same period in 2016. This economic growth is a sustained one, having been preceded by a similar growth, of 4.3% in the previous quarter of 2017.
A significant factor in the full percentage growth (from 3% to 4%) was the evolution of the total goods exported from Hong Kong
. The export business grew by 5.6% in the second quarter of 2017, on a year-on-year basis. Experts believe that should no significant external events take place, the economy of the city will continue to grow at this favorable pace.
