Exports to most major markets posted visible growth from a year earlier. Looking ahead, the prevailing momentum of the global economy is likely to continue and should be conducive to Hong Kong's export performance in the near term. However, the external environment is still subject to uncertainties, including those associated with the rise in trade protectionism, pace of US monetary normalisation and geopolitical tensions.

A Government spokesman noted that external merchandise trade performed well in early 2018 amid the solid expansion of the global economy. Taking the first two months of 2018 together to remove the distortion caused by the difference in timing of the Lunar New Year holidays, the value of merchandise exports picked up to show double-digit growth over a year earlier, with major markets generally registering notable gains. Looking ahead, while the sustained expansion of the global economy remains supportive to Hong Kong's exports, uncertainties in the external trading environment have increased visibly in recent weeks due to rising trade tensions between the US and other major economies. If trade conflicts worsen further, the growth of world trade will be curtailed with adverse repercussions on global demand conditions and Hong Kong’s trade outlook.
