    Commentary
     
         A Government spokesman noted that merchandise exports surged in January 2018 over a year earlier amid strengthening global demand. However, trade figures for January were distorted by the difference in timing of the Lunar New Year, which fell in mid-February this year but in late January last year. It would thus be more meaningful to analyse the trade figures for January and February combined, when available, for a clearer picture of the underlying growth momentum.
     
         The spokesman commented further that, looking ahead, the solid expansion of the global economy should continue to be supportive of Hong Kong's exports in the near term. However, the trading environment is still subject to various uncertainties, including continued US monetary policy normalisation amid a complicated global monetary environment, potential rise in trade protectionism in major economies and heightened geopolitical tensions in various regions. The Government will continue to monitor the developments closely.
