Industries (1912)

This report was originally under the section of Trade and Shipping, Industries, Fisheries, Agriculture and Land of the Administrative Reports for the year 1912. It reported on the conditions, operation of major companies, and import and export trends of selected industries in the year. The report also identified some external factors that affected the performance of some industries. For example, China Revolution in 1911 was cited to have adverse effect to the supply of tin from China to Hong Kong and therefore affected the export of tinned goods from Hong Kong. From 1908 to 1926, this heading continuously appeared in the government administrative reports.
