Further to the external merchandise trade statistics in value terms for November 2007 released earlier on, the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) released January 17 the volume and price statistics of external merchandise trade for that month.

In November 2007, the volume of Hong Kong's re-exports of goods increased by 5.3% over November 2006, whereas that of domestic exports decreased by 1.3%. Taken together, the volume of total exports of goods increased by 5.0%. Concurrently, the volume of imports of goods increased by 9.6%.

Comparing the first eleven months of 2007 with the same period in 2006, the volume of Hong Kong's re-exports of goods rose by 10.3%, whereas that of domestic exports dropped significantly, by 21.4%. Taken together, the volume of total exports of goods grew by 8.5%. Concurrently, the volume of imports of goods increased by 10.5%.

Comparing the three-month period ending November 2007 with the preceding three months on a seasonally adjusted basis, the volume of total exports of goods increased by 0.6%. Within this total, the volume of re-exports increased by 0.6%, while that of domestic exports increased by 0.2%. Concurrently, the volume of imports of goods increased by 2.8%.
