Hong Kong's economic contraction was confirmed at 4.0% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2022, following a downwardly revised 4.7% expansion in the previous period, according to final estimates. It was the first decline in GDP since the fourth quarter of 2020 and was the steepest since Q3 2020, as the city imposed strict lockdowns to curb its worst coronavirus outbreak yet. The closure of a major part of economic activity resulted in a sharp contraction of private consumption spending (-5.5% vs 5.3% in Q4 2021), and caused gross fixed investment to slump (-8.4% vs -0.6%), while government stimulus boosted public spending (6.0% vs 4.1%). Overseas, slowing trade caused drops in exports of goods (-4.5% vs 13.5%) and services (-2.8% vs 6.9%), as in imports of goods (-5.9% vs 9.9%) and services (-3.4% vs 4.5%). On a seasonally adjusted quarterly basis, GDP fell 3.0%, slightly more than a flash estimate of a 2.9% drop and following a revised flat reading in Q4, 2021. source: Census and Statistics Department, Hong Kong
