Hong Kong said Thursday that its unemployment rate dropped to 4.6 percent between December and February as hiring continued to be boosted by a strong pick-up in economic activities.

The seasonally adjusted jobless rate was down from 4.9 percent for the November-January period, and was below the 4.8 percent forecast of 10 economists surveyed by Dow Jones Newswires.
