Notes : Figures in this table are the latest data released on 11 May 2018.
 Figures on exports and imports of goods and services are compiled based on the change of ownership principle in recording goods sent abroad for processing and merchanting under the standards stipulated in the System of National Accounts 2008. Users should note that the figures of exports and imports of goods in this table are different from those published in external merchandise trade statistics which are not compiled based on the change of ownership principle.
 @The reference year for the chain volume measures of GDP and its components has been revised from 2015 to 2016. Re-referencing affects the levels, but not the rates of change, of the chain volume measures. Apart from re-referencing, the volume estimates for 2017 previously valued at 2015 prices have also been revalued at 2016 prices. This rebasing of the volume measures affects the real growth rates of the annual and quarterly GDP for 2017.
 The chained (2016) dollar series is derived by extrapolation of the current price value for the reference year (2016) backward and forward using the chain volume index as the extrapolator. As the extrapolation process is carried out for GDP and its components independently in calculating the chained dollar series, discrepancies may exist between the chain volume measure of GDP and the sum of the chain volume measures of its components.
 r“Revised figures”.
 p“Preliminary figures”.
 In Hong Kong, the first released GDP statistics in respect of a period are called “preliminary figures”. When more data become available, the preliminary figures will be revised. This routine revision is in accordance with the international practice to compile and release GDP figures at the earliest possible time by using only partial data. All those figures published subsequently, on revision, are called “revised figures”. In general, the figures are finalised when data from all regular sources are incorporated.
 '0.0'denotes increase or decrease of less than 0.05%.
