Hong Kong SAR’s growth expected to have slowed to 1.5% in 2016, and pick up modestly to about 2% in 2017, driven mainly by private consumption. Main risks are less-than-expected growth in China, uncertainty stemming from the U.S. developments and global market volatility, as well as local property market. To counter renewed signs of overheating in the property market, the authorities have put in place measures to limit risks.
