I live in Tung Chung, so pretty much any airline staff I know have either left/leaving/or planning on leaving. Even the ones with a well paying job are leaving. I do not know how HK will solve the staff shortage once/if they reopen, but the industry is relatively small and they know each other, I'm gathering not many will come back and we will get crap pilots from the great bay area!
The protests started the exodus but the Covid situation is the last nail in the coffin.
Wait for 5 years, narrative will change, taking over HK and not letting it go astray like other old cousin will be patriotic duty to great motherland and if nothing else, money is the biggest motivator anyway..
BTW, China is good at making first-copy of everything US/World does, isn't it!!!

Trends in investment banking / hedge funds are similar across all functions. The number of people relocating to Singapore or Europe has accelerated over the past year or so, many families with children unable to schedule holidays to see family, or smaller companies relocating altogether because of business constraints.
