Imports in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Imports (%) | Economic News & Forecasts

Hong Kong - Imports (percent change)

The economy likely remained hamstrung in the second quarter, after contracting at the steepest pace on record in the first quarter. Lockdown restrictions were gradually lifted since April–May; however, boding ill for private consumption, the unemployment rate spiked in May to the highest level since September 2005, while retail sales plummeted by over a third in the same month. Furthermore, although the manufacturing PMI posted the best reading since March 2018 in June, it still indicated deteriorating conditions for the 27th consecutive month, while business confidence was anemic in Q2. On the political front, the anti-subversion law China imposed on Hong Kong in June is stoking major economic uncertainty. Consequently, in mid-July the Trump administration banned exports of sensitive technologies and Hong Kong will now face the same scrutiny as mainland China—which will likely hamper the external sector and business investment ahead.
