    Yeah, and with immigration banning pregnant arrivals without private hospital arrangements pre-booked, no hope for anchor babies to contribute future workers and immediate workers if the parents stay.

    There are always a few stories of UK emigrants returning to HK, but it seems they represent a small minority.

    What is new to me, is that many HKPR that had a go of the live-in-SZ work-in-HK are burning out and coming back, even if it means taking up subdivided housing (which costs the same as a medium flat in less fancy parts of SZ). https://www.hk01.com/大國小事/977482/港女香...-浪費生命

    My personal fav of the 14 suggestions is the creation of an interdepartmental department to "cut red tape".

    Not sure what they really amounts to.

    I think the HK government used to publish the GEP numbers. Not sure where that is, but they were boasting about all the talent visas handed out.

    Nearly all the QMAS and various talent visas go to mainlanders.
    The webb-site passenger number scraping seem to say that there is +40k for rolling year. I think 3/4 of those would be helpers, etc.

    +10k of 'expats' over 365 days ? Maybe 5000 (assume DINKs) more flats demanded in midlevels or kennedy town? Don't see property prices or rents booming with inflow of highly paid expats. Unless we're talking about uptick in southside villas and houses being rented out.

    No worries, this should solve the problem.. Joke aside, to me this look like hyperbole based on small survey, may be you can find many flows in this hyperbole with your domain expertise in this area, awaiting..

    Behind a paywall but there's not much of a chance the data includes children. Or...?

    The data could be very different in 10-15 years!
