"Sports and Related Activities in Hong Kong"

     The Government has been consistently promoting the development of sports through a three-pronged approach, namely to promote sports in the community, to support elite sports and to develop Hong Kong into a centre for major international sports events. This feature article analyses the economic contribution of sports and related activities in Hong Kong in 2020. In 2020, the Gross Domestic Product at market prices of sports and related activities was $51 billion, accounted for 1.9% of Hong Kong's Gross Domestic Product.

"Statistics on Sectoral Concentration"

     A wide range of statistical indicators can be compiled from the results of the Annual Survey of Economic Activities conducted by the C&SD for analysing the business situation and performance of various economic sectors in Hong Kong. Among others, statistics on sectoral concentration can throw light on the extent of business concentration within individual sectors.

     This feature article analyses the extent of business concentration in selected economic sectors of Hong Kong by making reference to the Concentration Ratios and Herfindahl-Hirschman Indices compiled in terms of business receipts in 2019 and 2020. It is an update of similar articles on the same subject published in preceding years.

It collects up-to-date statistical series on various aspects of the social and economic situation of Hong Kong. Topics include population; labour; external trade; National Income and Balance of Payments; prices; business performance; energy; housing and property; government accounts, finance and insurance; and transport, communications and tourism.
