Value of domestic exports for textiles industry fall by $0.6 bn

May '08
In the first quarter of 2008, the value of domestic exports classified to the major industries including textiles; wearing apparel; chemicals and chemical products; and machinery together accounted for 77% of Hong Kong's total domestic exports, according to statistics released May 8 by the Census and Statistics Department.

In the first quarter of 2008, the value of domestic exports classified to the machinery industry fell by $0.4 billion or 14.5% to $2.2 billion as compared with the same quarter in 2007, that for the textiles industry by $0.6 billion or 14.4% to $3.7 billion, and that for the wearing apparel industry by $0.04 billion or 1.5% to $2.8 billion.

On the other hand, the value of domestic exports classified to the chemicals and chemical products industry by $0.3 billion or 11.9% to $2.6 billion.

The above statistics of domestic exports classified by industrial origin are derived by re-grouping the merchandise domestic export items originally grouped under the external trade classification system according to the industries in which these merchandise items are normally produced. Transactions in gold and specie are not included.

The industrial classification used is the Hong Kong Standard Industrial Classification (HSIC), which is to be distinguished from the United Nations Standard International Trade Classification (SITC) used in the regular trade statistics reports. In comparison, the HSIC is more related to production processes whereas the SITC is more geared to end uses of products.
