Apr exports value up 1.1%

The value of Hong Kong’s total goods exports increased to $389 billion in April, up 1.1% compared with the same month last year, the Census & Statistics Department announced today.   The value of imports of goods rose 2.1% to $425.6 billion for the same period.   A trade deficit of $36.6 billion, or 8.6% of the value of imports, was recorded for the month.   Comparing the three-month period ending April with the preceding three months on a seasonally adjusted basis, the value of total exports decreased 12% while that of imports fell 11.7%.   The Government said epidemic-induced transportation disruptions, though easing somewhat in the latter part of the month, continued to constrain export performance.   It pointed out that exports to the Mainland fell while those to the US and the European Union posted visible growth.   Looking ahead, the global economic outlook has worsened amid rampant inflation in some major economies and monetary policy tightening by respective cen

Police's National Security Department arrested four men and two women aged between 32 and 67 in Tin Hau, Mong Kok, Ngau Tau Kok, Tsuen Wan, Sheung Shui and Cheung Chau on suspicion of committing an act or acts with seditious intention, contravening the Crimes Ordinance.   The arrested people are being detained for further enquiries.   They are suspected of having purposely caused a nuisance during their attendance for hearing in different courts, including the High Court, the West Kowloon Magistrates' Courts and the Eastern Magistrates' Courts, between December 2021 and January 2022.   These acts severely affected jurisdictional dignity and court operations.   Police also conducted searches at the arrested people's residences with a court warrant. A number of items in suspected connection with the case, including records of conspiracy to cause a nuisance in the courts, were seized.   Police reminded the public that doing an act or acts with seditious intention to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against the administration of justice in Hong Kong is a serious crime. Offenders shall be liable to imprisonment for two years.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7.
