Notes : (1)The total of all economic activities presented in this table is different from the aggregrate direct investment liabilities presented in Table 047 due to the adoption of different presentation principles, with the former compiled based on the "directional principle" and the latter based on the "asset/liability principle" in accordance with the international statistical standards. The total of all economic activities in this table should be referred to in calculating the shares of individual economic activities, while the direct investment liabilities in Table 047 should be referred to in the analyses on aggregate statistics.
 (2)Individual figures may not add up to the total due to rounding.
 (3)A Hong Kong enterprise group (HKEG) mainly consists of a Hong Kong parent company, its Hong Kong subsidiaries, associates and branches.
 (4)For an enterprise group, economic activity here refers to the major economic activity of the whole enterprise group in Hong Kong. If an HKEG is engaged in a wide variety of activities, its economic activity is determined on the basis of the economic activity in respect of which the operating revenue is predominant.
 (5)Negative inflow does not necessarily relate to equity withdrawal. It may be the result of repayment of loans owed to non-resident affiliates.
