China expresses confidence in Hong Kong's future

On Friday, the global rating agency Moody's said Hong Kong had maintained its very strong Aa2 long-term issuer and senior unsecured ratings. The agency said Hong Kong's stable outlook included opportunities such as the Greater Bay Area. But it also said there could be risks if the region were perceived to be losing economic and political autonomy. At a press conference today, China's Foreign Ministry said there was no such risk in Hong Kong.
