“Too Little, Too Late” – Hong Kong sinks into recession

The major international trading hub faces a harsh recession following the announcement of an extradition bill to China and the ongoing China-US trade war. Increasingly violent protests over a 5-month period have caused chaos, hindering business and discouraging tourists. The economy has shrunk by 3.2% during the three months to September, compared to the previous quarter. Whilst the bill has since been halted by city leader Carrie Lam, many protesters claim this move is “too little, too late”.
