Food services had the biggest decline at 23.1% YoY. 

Business receipts of major service industries dropped double digits in the first quarter of 2022, led by food services which declined by $23.1 year-on-year (YoY), data from Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) showed.

Other industries which saw a decline in the first quarter (Q1) were financing services, excluding banking (-15.7%), and real estate (-13.3%).

On the other hand, transportation (+37.9%) and accommodation services (+14.2%) had a double-digit jump in their business receipts.

According to C&SD, the increases recorded in these industries were either due to low bases of comparison or surging output prices.
