HONG KONG, Jan 9 (Reuters) - More than six months of anti-government protests in Hong Kong have not been helpful to the economy in the Chinese-ruled territory and the “depth of the devastation” will be seen in the coming weeks, said the chief executive of the city’s stock exchange operator.

Addressing a Reuters Breakingviews event, Charles Li, the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Ltd’s (HKEX) CEO also said that what made Hong Kong great was “one country, two systems”. (Reporting by Jennifer Hughes and Anne Marie Roantree; Writing by Sumeet Chatterjee; Editing by Toby Chopra)
