One possible major disadvantage is that the effective appreciation of the pataca and high real interest rates may hamper both the Territory's economic recovery and the Government's efforts to diversify the economy.
On the other hand, the authorities consider that maintenance of the peg of the pataca to the Hong Kong dollar imparts a high degree of stability to the financial system and the economy as a whole.
