Records of actual (past) national government spending at a detailed transactional level. Data must display ongoing expenditure, including transactions and subsidies. A database of contracts awarded or similar will not be considered sufficient. Open spending data shows whether public money is efficiently and effectively used. It helps to understand spending patterns, and to display corruption, misuse, and waste. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.
|In an open and machine-readable format|
|Collected by government||Yes|
Hong Kong releases expenditure figures on an aggregated level and separated for different expenditure types (here. http://www.try.gov.hk/internet/eharch_annu_statend16_ds.html#p). Data is not separated as transactions to recipients, therefore the data does not qualify for the index.
