Govt to enhance securities trading

It is a pleasure to be here with you today, especially after an accident that has reminded me of the importance of staying vigilant even in relatively peaceful times. Continuously enhancing competitiveness despite good business is also a theme I wish to harp on in today's speech.   Some of you may recall that I last spoke to you in November 2018. That was into the second year of my tenure, witnessing the celebration of the 40th anniversary of our nation's reform and opening up, and the consecutive opening of two major pieces of cross-boundary transport infrastructure - the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.

August exports value up 25.9%

The value of Hong Kong’s total goods exports increased to $433.7 billion in August, up 25.9% on the same month last year, the Census & Statistics Department announced today.   The value of imports of goods jumped 28.1% to $460 billion for the same period.   A trade deficit of $26.3 billion, or 5.7% of the value of imports, was recorded for the month.   Comparing the three-month period ending August with the preceding three months on a seasonally adjusted basis, the value of exports increased 3.3%, while that of imports rose 3.7%.   The Government said the value of merchandise exports sustained notable year-on-year growth in August.   Exports to the Mainland, the US, the EU and many other Asian economies showed visible increases.   The total merchandise trade value amounted to $6.5099 trillion for the first eight months of the year, surpassing the high in the same period in 2018 by 12.8%, it added.   Looking ahead, the global economic recovery and vibrant regional trade flows should continue to support Hong Kong’s export performance in the near term.   However, the uncertainties on the economic outlook cast by the COVID-19 pandemic development, China-US relations and heightened geopolitical tensions also warrant attention, the Government noted.
