USA's foreign trade with Hong Kong, exports to Hong Kong and imports from Hong Kong in April 2021


The text of the following analysis is produced by a computer program. The program is a test version and its rule base at this stage is still quite limited.

In April 2021 Hong Kong represented 0.9 per cent of USA's foreign trade in goods, 2.0 % of USA's exports and 0.2 % of imports. In April Hong Kong was USA's 21. largest foreign trade partner. Most of the the value of trade consists of USA's exports to Hong Kong. $3.3 billion worth of trade was 19.3 per cent lower than in April of the previous year. During the month, the balance of trade with Hong Kong was $2.5 billion of surplus.

The value of imports from Hong Kong decreased strongly, by 83.5 per cent compared to in April of the previous year. The import amounted to $390 million in April 2021. More than half of the value of imports was in Sitc931 (special transactions and commodities not classified according to kind) representing a share of 54.5 per cent. Other major categories of imports were Sitc897 (jewellery, goldsmiths' and silversmiths' wares, and other articles of precious or semiprecious materials, n.e.s.), 14.7 per cent of imports and Sitc681 (silver, platinum and other metals of the platinum group) 7.1 %.

Exports to Hong Kong grew strongly over the previous year's April. The value of exports was $2.9 billion. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc971 (gold,non-monetary), which represented a share of 24.3 per cent of total exports, Sitc776 (thermionic, cold cathode or photo-cathode valves and tubes (e.g., vacuum or vapour or gas-filled valves and tubes, mercury arc rectifying valves and tubes, cathode-ray tubes, television camera tubes); diodes, transistors and similar semiconductor dev) 14.5 % and Sitc764 (telecommunications equipment, n.e.s., and parts, n.e.s., and accessories of apparatus falling within division 76) 14.1 % of the exports.

Development during January-April 2021

During January-April trade in goods with Hong Kong has grown slower than USA's trade in goods with the rest of the world. During January-April, the value of trade in goods between the two countries rose to $11.5 billion. Growth compared to the corresponding period of the previous year was 1.2 percent. During January-April the value of imports was $1.2 billion. The export value was $10.3 billion. Compared to the corresponding period January - April in 2020, the value of imports during this period decreased by 64.9 %. The largest product group in terms of imports has been Sitc931 (special transactions and commodities not classified according to kind), worth $467 million. In export the largest value had Sitc764 (telecommunications equipment, n.e.s., and parts, n.e.s., and accessories of apparatus falling within division 76), worth being $1.7 billion. The value of exports during this period increased by 28.5 %. The trade balance between USA and Hong Kongin between January and April was in surplus for USA. The timing surplus was $9.2 billion.
