July 2, 2012 - PRLog -- Hong Kong’s incoming leader, financial secretary and top central banker all pledged their commitment to the city’s currency peg after former monetary chief Joseph Yam called for a review of the link to the dollar.

With the dollar peg, Hong Kong has “inherently a higher degree of volatility in economic activities and in domestic prices,” Yam wrote in his paper. The city’s inflation has been “widely recognized” as uncomfortably high and asset bubbles have been a feature, he noted. Yam supported Leung’s rival, Henry Tang, in a March leadership contest.
