Civil Aid Service holds parade

The Civil Aid Service (CAS) held the Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and CAS 70th Anniversary Parade today at the Police College.   Chief Secretary Chan Kwok-ki officiated at the ceremony and acted as the reviewing officer for the parade.   To demonstrate national identity and patriotic sentiment for the motherland, the CAS has fully adopted from today, the Chinese-style foot drill that requires exacting standards, and demonstrated the drill's protocols for the first time in the parade.   As an auxiliary force under the Security Bureau, the CAS has been honouring the pledge of "provide emergency relief, serve the community" and has been rendering immediate assistance during emergencies to protect Hong Kong citizens.   During the COVID-19 epidemic, the CAS has remained steadfast on the front line of the anti-epidemic operations by rapidly assisting in setting up a number of community isolation faci

April exports value up 24.4%

The value of Hong Kong's total goods exports increased to $384.9 billion in April, up 24.4% on the same month last year, the Census & Statistics Department announced today.   The value of imports of goods increased 25.2% to $416.7 billion for the same period.   A trade deficit of $31.8 billion, or 7.6% of the value of imports, was recorded for the month.   Comparing the three-month period ending April with the preceding three months on a seasonally adjusted basis, the value of exports rose 14.5%, while that of imports increased 8.6%.   The value of total merchandise trade for the first four months of the year was way higher than the previous high recorded in the same period in 2018, reflecting vibrant trading activities amid a sharp rebound in external demand, the Government said.   Looking ahead, the sustained revival of the global economy should continue to render support to Hong Kong's export performance in the near term.   However, the evolving pandemic situation and other risk factors such as China-US relations and geopolitical tensions still warrant attention, it added.
