Hong Kong April retail sales jump 11.7%, ending two months of decline

HONG KONG, June 1 (Reuters) - Hong Kong retail sales surged 11.7% in April from a year earlier, ending two consecutive months of decline, government data showed on Wednesday.

The government said the value of retail sales rebounded in April helped by a receding pandemic and the disbursement of consumption vouchers.

Sales surged to HK$30.2 billion ($3.85 billion), having declined by 13.8% in March.
