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%.
