Hong Kong Jobless Rate Unchanged For Eighth Month

Hong Kong's unemployment rate held steady for an eighth month in a row in December, figures from the Census and Statistics Department showed on Thursday.

The seasonally adjusted jobless rate was 2.8 percent in the October to December period, in line with economists' expectations.

The rate has been at this level since the February to April period of 2018, data from the agency showed.

"The labour market is expected to remain tight in the near term," the Secretary for Labour and Welfare Law Chi-kwong said.
