Information from Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) authorities says that Hong Kong's overall volume of exports and imports has achieved strong growth, increasing 32.1 percent and 39.8 percent, respectively, over the corresponding period of last year.

The data from the census and statistics department suggests Hong Kong has achieved 231.8 billion HKD export volume and 270.6 billion HKD import volume in March.

The department also says that Hong Kong's export level has by and large rebounded to the position it held before the global financial crisis and its foreign trade, in the short term, will continue to benefit from the global economic recovery.

It is reported that the overall export value of Hong Kong's transit trade and local produced goods was 222.5 billion HKD in March 2008.
