Hong Kong cargo boost in February

Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) experienced strong cargo growth in February, with a sharp year-on-year increase of 14.1% to 294,000 tonnes.
In the first two months of 2017, HKIA recorded a 7.7% increase to 666,000 tonnes from the same period of last year.
An HKIA spokesperson said: “The combined robust growth in cargo throughput in the first two months of 2017 was mainly attributable to an 11% year-on-year increase in transhipments.
"Exports also recorded an 8% growth. Among the key trading regions, traffic to and from North America, Europe and Southeast Asia showed the most significant increases.”
