According to The National Bureau of Statistics of China, Chinese total retail sales of consumer goods increased by 8.2% year-on-year in January and February 2019.
The General Administration of Customs of China announced that China's import and export value totaled US$266.36 billion, decreased by 13.8% year-on-year in February 2019. Export value decreased by 20.7% year-on-year to US$135.24 billion while import value was US$131.12 billion, decreased 5.2% year-on-year in February 2019.
Census and Statistics Department released that the value of Hong Kong total exports of goods decreased by 0.4% in January 2019 over a year earlier to HK$348.7 billion A Government spokesman noted that the value of merchandise exports recorded a marginal year-on-year decline in January 2019. It should be noted that the trade figures for January might have been distorted by the difference in timing of the Lunar New Year, which fell in early February this year but mid-February last year. It is thus more meaningful to analyse the trade figures for January and February combined, when available, for a clearer picture of the underlying situation. Looking ahead, the external environment is still challenging. Moderating economic growth in many of our key trading partners will likely weigh on Hong Kong's merchandise exports in the near term.
According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the consumer price index (CPI) was up by 1.7% year-on-year in January 2019. Compared to December 2018, the index rose by 0.5% in January 2019.
The General Administration of Customs of China announced that China's import and export value totaled US$395.98 billion, increased by 4.0% year-on-year in January 2019. Export value increased by 9.1% year-on-year to US$217.57 billion while import value was US$178.41 billion, decreased 1.5% year-on-year in January 2019.
Census and Statistics Department released that the value of Hong Kong total exports of goods decreased by 5.8% in December 2018 over a year earlier to HK$339.9 billion A Government spokesman noted that the value of merchandise exports showed an enlarged year-on-year decline in December 2018, as the moderation in global economic growth and the US-Mainland trade tensions increasingly weighed on the exports of many Asian economies. Nonetheless, thanks to the strong performance in the earlier part of the year, the value of merchandise exports rose notably by 7.3% for 2018 as a whole. The near-term outlook for merchandise trade is challenging amid moderating global economic growth and the uncertainty surrounding the US-Mainland trade relations.
