Abstract

This paper provides a non-technical summary of ten HKMA research papers grouped together under the theme of "macroeconomic linkages between Hong Kong and Mainland China". A common message coming out of the analysis is that Hong Kong has primarily served as a gateway of trade and financial flows between the Mainland and the rest of the world, and Hong Kong’s cyclical conditions are very much tied to fluctuations in the volume of flows of goods, services and capital between the Mainland and its major trading partners. Such a “bridge” role is likely to remain important for Hong Kong’s economic future, even though trade and financial flows that are more closely linked to developments in domestic demand on the Mainland will gain increasing significance. This paper also serves as the introductory chapter of the book entiled "Macroeconomic Linkages between Hong Kong and Mainland China", by Hans Genberg and Dong He, which is published by the City University of Hong Kong Press (ISBN: 978-962-937-161-6)
