"Foreign Affiliates Statistics of Hong Kong"

     With increasing globalisation of the world economy, it becomes popular for multinational enterprises to provide services to customers in another economy through setting up affiliated companies abroad.

     In view of the growing importance of services supplied via this mode, the C&SD has developed a statistical framework for compiling relevant statistics, known as "foreign affiliates statistics (FATS)". This feature article briefly describes the statistical system for compiling inward FATS, and presents selected inward FATSof Hong Kong for 2015.

"Hong Kong's Trade Involving Outward Processing in the Mainland of China, 2006 to 2016"

     Outward processing (OP) activities play an important role in Hong Kong's trade with the mainland of China (the Mainland). Trade of OP nature is mingled with other types of trade under the existing system of recording trade statistics. To better assess the performance of Hong Kong's trade with the Mainland, the C&SD has been conducting monthly surveys to collect data on trade involving OP in the Mainland since 1988. The main objective of the surveys is to separate OP trade from the regular trade. Starting from 2010, additional data on the arrangement for OP in the Mainland was collected in the survey.

     This feature article describes Hong Kong's trade involving OP in the Mainland during the period from 2006 to 2016.

     Published in bilingual form, the HKMDS is a compact volume of official statistics containing about 140 tables. It collects up-to-date statistical series on various aspects of the social and economic situation of Hong Kong. Topics include population; labour; external trade; National Income and Balance of Payments; prices; business performance; energy; housing and property; Government accounts, finance and insurance; and transport, communications and tourism.
