Standard Chartered Hong Kong SME Leading Business Index

The "Standard Chartered Hong Kong SME Leading Business Index" is a forward-looking quarterly survey executed independently by Hong Kong Productivity Council ("HKPC") and sponsored by Standard Chartered Hong Kong, with an aim to assist the public and SMEs to get an insight into the forthcoming business climate. The index will be released every quarter in January, April, July and October each year, and is computed from the analysis of local SMEs' view on the outlook of the overall business environment and regional economic change for the next quarter, through telephone interviews done by HKPC professionals.

The size and scope of the survey is one of the most extensive of its kind in Hong Kong, with more than 3,000 responses expected from the four quarterly surveys for analysis, and covering eight industries including manufacturing, import/export trade and wholesale, retail, accommodation and catering services, information and communications, finance and insurance industry, professional services, and real estate industry.
