The Fallout from Hong Kong’s Protests

03 Oct The Fallout from Hong Kong’s Protests

The 2019 protests in Hong Kong have proven longer and even more divisive than the city’s last brush with civil disobedience, the Umbrella Movement protests five years ago. In 2014, Hong Kong’s economy was barely affected by the demonstrations, despite widespread predictions of doom. Trade, tourism, and retail sales remained strong throughout the Umbrella Movement. However, there are concerns that this year’s unrest will have a deeper and longer-term effect on Hong Kong.

  • How have the 2019 protests affected Hong Kong’s economy?
  • Will there be a long-lasting impact on Hong Kong’s status as a financial hub?
  • How might Hong Kong’s government and Beijing work to stabilise the situation?
