The outstanding stock of local currency bonds in Hong Kong, China amounted to HKD2,266.0 billion (USD290.8 billion) at the end of the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2019, rising 0.07% quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q) and 1.8% year-on-year. The weak q-o-q growth was largely due to a 0.9% contraction in corporate bonds, which weighed on the 1.0% growth in government bonds. Government bonds accounted for 52.2% of the local currency bond total at the end of Q4 2019.
Corporate bond sales in Hong Kong, China continued to decline in Q4 2019, falling 18.9% q-o-q after a 12.1% q-o-q drop in the third quarter of 2019. Months of prolonged political protests and the ensuing economic recession curtailed appetite for corporate borrowing during the quarter.
