Hong Kong Trade Deficit Widens 58% YoY in February  
Hong Kong’s trade deficit increased sharply to HKD 53.7 billion in February of 2014 as exports fell by an annual 1.3 percent.

Cost of private housing rentals also slowed.

In the period December of 2013 - February of 2014, Hong Kong jobless rate remained unchanged at a 16-year low 3.1 percent. Total employment declined from its historic high, as business activities returned to a more normal level after its peak in Lunar New Year.
