On 9th July 2019, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority announced the countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB) for Hong Kong will remain at 2.5%.

System-wide risks in Hong Kong associated with a period of excessive credit growth have not subsided. Housing affordability remains highly stretched and household debt-to-GDP ratio has risen to a new high.

Further details of the decision may be found in the Announcement of the CCyB to Authorized Institutions on the HKMA website.
