Trade Balance in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Trade Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Hong Kong - Trade Balance

After shrinking at the sharpest pace since 2020 in Q1 2022 due to soaring Covid-19 cases and tough ensuing restrictions, the economy is enjoying a strong rebound in Q2. Covid-19 cases have tumbled since their March peak, allowing for the progressive rollback of restrictions, and the distribution of HKD 5,000 (around USD 635) consumption vouchers to citizens in April is further aiding private spending. Looking at available indicators, retail sales surged year on year in April, while the private-sector PMI rose to an over decade-high in May. However, ongoing quarantine requirements continue to hamper tourism and the city’s international competitiveness. Moreover, in mid-June, testing requirements were reintroduced for entry to bars and clubs in response to a slight uptick in cases, raising the specter of a broader snapback of restrictions ahead.
