Thanks to ample liquidity and a helping hand from mainland financial institutions, Hong Kong's office market has recovered from the global financial crisis better than other main financial centres around the world, says property consultancy CB Richard Ellis.

The credit crisis that unfolded around the world in the wake of the collapse of the sub-prime mortgage market in the US in mid-2007 did not diminish the keenness of mainland banks and insurance companies to establish a foothold in Hong Kong, according to the managing director of CBRE's local office, Craig Shute.
