Cover of the Publication
Bilingual (Chinese and English)

The services sector is the heart of Hong Kong’s economy. Accurate and detailed statistics play an important role in support of the Government's initiatives on promoting the services sector.

The Digest brings together in one volume the more important statistical series on 14 major service industries/domains of Hong Kong. Different types of statistics pertaining to a specific service industry/domain are presented in a dedicated section of the Digest, supported by graphical presentations, for easy reference and interpretation. Most of the statistics presented cover the year 2009 and each of the years from 2015 to 2019, to facilitate comparison over the past decade. Where appropriate, quarterly statistics from the third quarter of 2018 to the fourth quarter of 2019 are also provided to show the latest short-term economic performance of selected service industries/domains within the services sector of Hong Kong.
