HK splurges HK$25 billion on clothes annually

A survey has found that Hong Kong people spend around HK$25 billion a year on new clothes – twice the amount spent by people in Taiwan.

It also revealed that each person in the city spends an average of HK$800 per month while those in Taiwan spent around HK$350.

The survey was conducted by Greenpeace Hong Kong. It said the cost of clothes was higher in the territory and people tended to shop more frequently.

The group said about 40 percent of the people it spoke to said they feel the urge to buy again within a week of their shopping.
