Amid international angst, dealmakers look to domestic successes

The economies of China and Hong Kong are bouncing back following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. With growth of 2.3%, China was the only major economy to have expanded in 2020 and is expected to see growth of 8.1% in 2021, according to the Asian Development Bank. While Hong Kong’s economy shrank by 6.1% amid the pandemic, the local government is forecasting growth of between 3.5%-5.5% in 2021.

This improving economic outlook is translating into greater deal activity. Together, China and Hong Kong recorded 963 deal announcements worth US$296.4bn in H1 2021, representing a 88.5% year-on-year increase from the same period last year, and with 148 more deals recorded.
