43.9 per cent of Hongkongers polled have said they would be inclined to emigrate if given a chance, according to a Chinese University of Hong Kong survey. It comes following a year of turmoil for the city, with mass protests and unrest, a wide-reaching crackdown by the authorities and the implementation of the national security law.

The university’s Hong Kong Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies’ conducted a telephone survey of 737 people and released the results on Tuesday. Of those open to emigrating, 35 per cent said they have taken action to prepare for a move.

The Institute said both numbers “significantly increased” compared to polls conducted in December 2018. Back then, 34 per cent said they were inclined to emigrate. Of those who wanted to move, 23 per cent said they had taken action to plan for emigration.
