Abstract
:

External Debt (ED) statistics provide useful information for international financial surveillance.  Reliable, comprehensive and timely ED statistics facilitate data users in monitoring the development of an economy's external liabilities and hence its debt servicing obligations over time.  They can also provide early warning signal of possible debt servicing problems.  ED statistics are useful for the formulation and management of the economy's micro- and macro-economic policies and strategies.

This article briefly describes the underlying concepts of ED statistics and presents salient features of Hong Kong’s ED statistics from 2012 to 2016.
