Airport Authority Hong Kong: “We are pleased with the strong financial performance for the first six months, which was primarily the result of traffic growth as well as retail and advertising revenue growth arising from the awarding of a few major retail licences in late 2012. We forecast the momentum of traffic growth will continue in the remainder of the financial year, and we are therefore cautiously optimistic of our 2013/2014 full-year financial performance,” William Lo Chi-chung, Executive Director Finance.
