About This Report


Hong Kong continues to struggle to remain a major global player in container shipping, and following a drop in box throughput volumes in ----, we forecast a fifth consecutive year of declines in ----. Growth will return in ---- but will remain only modest over the course of our forecast period to ----. ...Despite a poor outlook for Hong Kong s trade generally, we expect that the facility s role as an international hub will continue to protect it from this. Beyond the scope of our forecast period, the opening of a third runway, scheduled for completion in ----, will ensure that Hong Kong is able to continue to compete on the world stage for the foreseeable future. We forecast total road freight volumes will grow -.- in ---- to reach --.-mn tonnes. ...We forecast box throughput through the Port of Hong Kong will decline -.- in ---- to reach --.--mn twenty-foot equivalent units.

In terms of trade, Hong Kong will see a positive expansion of -.- , following the -.- decline registered in ----, but given the above, risks to this outlook are the downside. ...In nominal terms, growth will be -.- in ---- and -.- in ----. If realised, this will result in Hong Hong s trade totalling USD-,---bn and USD-,---bn respectively.
