Hong Kong Customs has conducted a two-week joint operation with the mainland and Macao Customs to combat cross-boundary counterfeit goods activities.
The operation ran from October 14 to 27, focusing on goods destined for overseas countries. Hong Kong Customs seized about 37,000 items of suspected counterfeit goods with an estimated market value of about HK$4.9 million.
The suspected counterfeit goods seized by Hong Kong Customs included footwear, clothes, leather products, glasses, mobile phones and accessories.
The three customs authorities stepped up inspections of goods across the three areas to more effectively curb cross-boundary counterfeit goods activities.
