$7.1b balance of payments deficit recorded
Hong Kong recorded a balance of payments deficit of $7.1 billion (as a ratio of 1.5% to GDP) in the second quarter of 2012, as against a surplus of $63.8 billion (as a ratio of 13.2% to GDP) in the first quarter, the Census & Statistics Department says.
Reserve assets correspondingly fell by the same amount.
The current account recorded a deficit of $9.3 billion (as a ratio of 2.0% to GDP), as against a surplus of $10.6 billion (as a ratio of 2.3% to GDP) in the same quarter of last year.
The drop in the current account balance was due to an increase in the visible trade deficit, a decrease in the net inflow of primary income and an increase in the net outflow of secondary income, partly offset by an increase in the invisible trade surplus.
With imports of goods increasing faster than exports of goods, the visible trade deficit increased from $44.7 billion in the second quarter of 2011 to $72.4 billion in the same quarter this year.
On the other hand, the invisible trade surplus increased from $32.6 billion in the second quarter of 2011 to $46.5 billion in the same quarter this year, as exports of services increased and imports of services decreased. Overall, a combined visible and invisible trade deficit of $25.8 billion was recorded in the second quarter, larger than that of $12.1 billion in the same quarter of 2011.

Unemployment rate steady at 3.2%
The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate stood at 3.2% in the June-August quarter, the same as the May-July period, but the underemployment rate rose from 1.5% to 1.7%, the Census & Statistics Department announced today.
Secretary for Labour & Welfare Matthew Cheung said: "The labour market conditions held largely stable during the summer period. While total employment decreased slightly by around 4,400 to 3,671,300 in June-August after several months of upsurge, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate remained unchanged at a low level of 3.2%."
On the short-term outlook, Mr Cheung said: "The employment situation hinges on overall economic performance and in particular the pace of job creation in the corporate sector. While the number of job vacancies is still at a relatively high level, some employers have adopted a more cautious attitude towards staff hiring. Increasing downside risks in the external environment will add further uncertainties to the overall economic outlook in Hong Kong. We will stay alert and monitor developments closely."
Increases in the unemployment rate were mainly seen in the warehousing and support activities for transportation, and professional and business services sectors, excluding cleaning and similar activities, while decreases were mainly observed in the construction and real estate sectors.
The increase in underemployment was mainly seen in the construction, and food and beverage service activities sectors.
The labour force decreased by about 1,200 to 3.803 million in June-August, while the number of underemployed grew by 6,800 to 63,400.
