Import statistics are available by country/territory of origin and/or country/territory of consignment while domestic export figures are analyzed by country/territory of consignment. For re-exports, merchandise trade statistics are available by country/territory of origin and/or country/territory of consignment.
The concepts and definitions adopted in the compilation of Hong Kong’s merchandise trade statistics are in conformity with the standards recommended by the United Nations in the International Merchandise Trade Statistics - Concepts and Definitions, Revision 2. The “general” system is adopted for compiling trade statistics.
Hong Kong’s merchandise trade statistics are compiled based on information in import/export declarations.
The declarations submitted by importers/exporters are matched against cargo manifests to ensure that there is no omission of declaration.
Adjustments, where necessary, are incorporated in year-to-date figures. The practice is explained in detail in trade statistics publications.
