The world economy tended to slow down in the third quarter of 2011. The U.S. sovereign credit rating downgrade, the Euro zone financial turbulence triggered by exacerbating sovereign debt crisis, and accelerating inflation across the continents overcasted the world recovery with greater uncertainty. The World Economic Outlook (WEO) of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in September 2011 indicated that the global economy is in a dangerous new phase; the advance economies face intractable structural problems, with the process of devising and implementing reforms becoming even more complicated; the outlook for these economies is thus for a continuing, but weak and bumpy, expansion. Prospects for emerging economies become more uncertain, although growth is expected to remain fairly robust. The world economy is projected to grow by 4.0% in 2011, down by 0.3 percentage point from the June WEO; growth forecast for 2012 is revised downward by 0.5 percentage point to 4.0%.

Despite sustained recovery of the US economy, rate of growth was lower than expected. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the third quarter of 2011 expanded by 1.5% year-on-year and 2.0%

quarter-to-quarter. The increment was still pushed forward by private consumption expenditure, non-residential fixed investment and exports, which contributed 1.6, 1.4 and 0.6 percentage point respectively to economic growth. However, decrease in inventory cutback in state and local government spending dragged down the rate of expansion by 1.6 and 0.2 percentage point respectively. Unemployment rate rose to 9.1%, up by 0.2 percentage point from the second quarter;

the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate held stable as the previous quarter, at 9.1%.

Weakening growth of the Euro zone continued on account of the deepening sovereign debt crisis of certain member states. GDP increased by 1.4% year-on-year and 0.2% quarter-to-quarter in the third quarter of 2011. The expansion was spurred by increase in exports, as well as consumption expenditure of households and non-profit institutions that contributed 0.6 and 0.2 percentage point respectively. Unemployment rate rose slightly from 9.8% in the previous quarter to 9.9% amid the sluggish performance.

The service sector provided impetus to the rather lacklustre growth of the UK economy. GDP expanded by 0.5% both year-on-year and quarter-to-quarter in the third quarter of 2011. Gross fixed capital formation and government final consumption expenditure contributed 0.7 and 0.2 percentage point to economic growth, yet trade balance dragged down the rate of increase by 0.4 percentage point. The economy saw little improvement and the unemployment rate soared further by 0.4 percentage point from the previous quarter to 8.3%.

Deceleration in growth of the Asian economies has started since the second quarter of 2011

due to shrinking external demand. The September WEO of IMF pointed out that the newly

industrialized Asian economies

a

are projected to expand by 4.7%, the ASEAN 5

b

by 5.3%, the

(10)

Middle East and the North African region by 4.0%, and the Chinese and Indian economies by 9.5%

and 7.8% respectively in 2011, lower than the June forecast.

In Japan, year-on-year GDP growth held stable in the third quarter of 2011 and increased by 1.5% quarter-to-quarter. Economic growth was attributable to the increase in private domestic demand and exports, an indication of gradual recovery after the earthquake. Private domestic demand and exports contributed 1.1 and 0.4 percentage point respectively to the rate of expansion.

Unemployment rate retreated by 0.3 percentage point over the previous quarter to 4.4%; the seasonally adjusted rate was also 4.4%, down by 0.2 percentage point quarter-to-quarter.

Implementation of a proactive fiscal policy and a sound monetary policy, the economy of Mainland China was moving towards the anticipated direction of macroeconomic control. GDP expanded by 9.1% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2011, down by 0.4 percentage point from the previous quarter; GDP growth for the first three quarters of 2011 was 9.4%, a decrease of 1.2 percentage points year-on-year. In the first three quarters of 2011, value added of the above-scale industries

c

rose by 14.2% year-on-year, down by 0.1 percentage point compared with the increment in the first half year; fixed asset investment increased by 24.9%, down by 0.7 percentage point;

retail sales of consumer goods rose by 17.0%, up by 0.2 percentage point, with sales of jewellery rising by 47.8%, petroleum and petroleum products by 39.3%, household furniture by 31.4% and automobile by 16.0%. Total value of external merchandise trade for the first three quarters registered an increase of 24.6% year-on-year, with a trade surplus of USD 107.1 billion. CPI for the third quarter increased further to 5.7% amid rising inflation, up by 0.3 percentage point from the previous quarter.

The economy of Hong Kong slowed to grow by 4.3% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2011;

the after seasonal adjustment GDP edged up slightly by 0.1% quarter-to-quarter due to slackened external trade. Economic expansion was driven by rising domestic demand, with fixed capital formation increasing further by 10.2%, private consumption expenditure surging by 8.8% and government final consumption expenditure rising modestly by 1.7%. Merchandise imports and exports continued to slow, up by 8.9% and 4.2% respectively year-on-year but down by 0.1% and 1.1% respectively after seasonal adjustment. Unemployment rate lowered by 0.2 percentage point to 3.4%, back to the same level in the first quarter.

I. Overview

In the third quarter of 2011, the economy of Macao increased by 21.1% year-on-year in real terms. Economic growth was spurred by the impetus of exports of services, private consumption expenditure and investment, in which soaring gross gaming revenue (excluding gratuities) and rising total visitor spending (excluding gaming expenses) led to favourable increase in exports of services; on the contrary, merchandise exports declined further. As regards domestic demand, investment continued to grow, and private consumption expenditure increased further upon improving job market and rising employment earnings.

The following highlights year-on-year comparisons of major segments of the local economy in the third quarter of 2011:

1. Despite plummeting demand in Europe and the US, as well as weakening demand in Mainland China, demand in Hong Kong increased, bringing total value of merchandise exports up slightly by 0.1% in the third quarter, of which exports of garment dropped by 24.1% while that of tobacco and wine rose by 38.2%. Analysed by destination, decline in exports to the US accelerated sharply to 49.5%, and exports to Mainland China; and Taiwan, China fell by 9.9%

and 36.7% respectively; meanwhile, exports to Hong Kong went up by 19.6%. Total value of merchandise imports increased by 46.4%, of which imports of consumer goods and capital goods rose remarkably by 52.7% and 60.0% respectively. A visible trade deficit of MOP 15.06 billion was recorded in the third quarter.

2. Gross gaming revenue surged by 47.8%; visitor arrivals increased by 16.6%; hotel guests rose by 19.0%, and per-capita spending of visitors (excluding gaming expenses) went up by 6.8%, driving exports of services up by 33.5% in real terms; imports of services also increased by 35.7%.

3. Unemployment rate stood at 2.6%, down by 0.3 percentage point year-on-year and 0.1 percentage point quarter-to-quarter; median monthly employment earnings increased by 11.1%;

the Composite Consumer Price Index (Composite CPI) rose by 6.2%. Private consumption expenditure increased by 9.0% in real terms, and government final consumption expenditure expanded by 6.9%.

4. Overall investment increased by 5.7% in real terms. Total equipment investment grew by

43.9%, in which investment of the private sector increased by 30.8% and that of the public

sector soared by 234.4%. Total construction investment declined by 5.5%, with construction

by the private sector falling by 8.8% but that by the public sector rising by 4.2%. Furthermore,

(16)

respectively.

5. Total government revenue rose by 47.6% to MOP 29.98 billion, with tax revenue from gaming rising by 51.9% to MOP 26.37 billion. Total expenditure decreased by 31.6% to MOP 10.10 billion, with current expenditure amounting to MOP 8.06 billion. Fiscal surplus for the third quarter stood at MOP 19.88 billion.

Consumption of liquid fuel (gasoline, kerosene, gas oil & diesel, and fuel oil) went up by 29.8% to 110.61 million litres due to an increase in consumption of fuel oil; consumption of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) increased by 3.9% to 8,731 tonnes.

III. Concluding Remarks

The economy of Macao expanded by 21.1% in real terms in the third quarter of 2011, attributable to the increase in exports of services, private consumption expenditure and investment.

GDP for the first three quarters of 2011 registered a year-on-year increase of 21.8% in real terms.

Looking ahead to the fourth quarter of 2011, in terms of domestic demand, even though public investment keep expanding, growth in total investment is expected to narrow upon decelerating private investment; nevertheless, rising total employment and income is likely to sustain the upsurge in private consumption expenditure and retain the unemployment rate below the 3.0% level.

As regards external demand, merchandise exports will see continuous decline upon the turbulent

world economy and the still sluggish weakening demand in Europe and the US. However,

satisfactory increase is expected in exports of tourism and gaming services, with visitor arrivals in

October and November increasing by 16.8% year-on-year when gross gaming revenue soaring by

37.5%. In sum, the economy of Macao is projected to have double-digit growth in the fourth quarter

and the whole year of 2011, yet the pace of increase is likely to decelerate.
