Dear Mr Yip,

        I refer to your enquiry about concordance tables of industrial
classification, made under the Code on Access to Information on 7 May
2016.  Our responses are given below.

2.        The Hong Kong Standard Industrial Classification Version 2.0
(HSIC V2.0), which is modelled on the International Standard Industrial
Classification of All Economic Activities Revision 4 (ISIC Rev. 4)
promulgated by the United Nations, is a classification framework for
classifying economic units into industry classes based on their major
activities.  It serves as a standard classification in Hong Kong for
compilation, analysis and dissemination of statistics by economic activity
on the one hand and to comply with international standard for
classification of industry statistics so as to facilitate comparisons of
data across different economies on the other.  As such, a concordance
table between HSIC V2.0 and ISIC Rev, 4 at broad level is available and is
attached for reference.

3.        Nevertheless, concordance tables between HSIC V2.0 and the eight
classifications mentioned in your email are not available.  

4.        Should you have any questions about the above, please contact Mr
Trent TO of the Employment Statistics and Central Register of
Establishments Section (Tel. no. : 2582 5751).

With best regards,

Patrick Lam
