Enterprise backs outreach jab service

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip visited AIA Hong Kong & Macau today to view the administering of the BioNTech vaccine to about 400 people as arranged by the Government's outreach vaccination service.   Mr Nip said it is encouraging that various enterprises have joined the Government in promoting the Early Vaccination for All campaign and called on their employees to receive vaccination.   He hopes that vaccinated citizens will also encourage their family members and friends to get the jab to help build an immune barrier in Hong Kong.   The outreach vaccination programme has received enthusiastic support since its launch, with vaccination services provided for the Hong Kong Sports Institute, global professional services enterprises, property developers, financial institutions and more. http://dlvr.it/S4y8xb

Mar exports value up 26.4%

The value of Hong Kong’s total exports increased to $409.1 billion in March, up 26.4% on the same month last year, the Census & Statistics Department announced today.   The value of imports of goods increased 21.7% to $436.1 billion for the same period.   A trade deficit of $27 billion, or 6.2% of the value of imports, was recorded for the month.   Comparing the first quarter this year with the preceding quarter on a seasonally adjusted basis, the value of exports rose 19.4%, while that of imports increased 13.8%.   The value of exports continued to have strong growth on a year-on-year basis in March on the back of a sharp rebound in global demand. Exports to many major markets, notably the Mainland, registered visible increases, the Government said.   For the first quarter as a whole, total merchandise trade value surpassed the previous first-quarter high in 2018 by 13.2%, it added.
