HKAB Hopes for Peace and Stability to Return to Hong Kong Community

(9 August 2019) The Hong Kong Association of Banks ("HKAB") respects the expression of opinions and demands in a peaceful and rational manner. However, after some demonstrations in recent months, violent conflict emerged and caused disruptions to transportations and damages to public facilities that seriously affected a wide spectrum of general public and social order.

For the safety of customers and bank employees, operations of some bank branches had been temporarily suspended, affecting provision of services delivery.

Continued violations of the rule of law will affect Hong Kong's hard-earned position as an international financial centre.

The HKAB calls on members of the public to stop all violent acts and to resolve differences through dialogues. We also hope that the Hong Kong community will return to calm and peace soon.
