market maturity means growth rates in Hong Kong will underperform emerging markets in the APAC region. However we believe it s position as a regional data centre and cloud services hub will sustain growth rates above those observed in the majority of developed markets globally . D river s of cloud investment will be demand from Hong Kong's large financial services industry , as well as opportunities for regional expansion .

Headline Expenditure Projections
