Abstract
:
Balance of Payments (BoP) statistics are important for monetary and financial monitoring and policy deliberations in different areas in both local and international contexts. Such data also provide an objective basis for gauging the economic situation and in assessing the financial soundness of an economy. Not only are BoP data crucial elements for many business and investment decisions, but also facilitate macroeconomic analysis on different aspects of an economy. This article briefly explains the concepts of the BoP account. It then presents the salient features of Hong Kong’s BoP account in the past decade. The latest development in international standards for the compilation of the BoP account is also highlighted.
