Note: The Office of the Government Economist, which is under the Financial Secretary's Office, was formerly known as the Economic Analysis and Business Facilitation Unit (EABFU). Having regard to the similarities in job nature, the Business Facilitation Division of the EABFU has been transferred to the Efficiency Office under the Innovation and Technology Bureau with effect from 1 April 2018. To reflect the change in organization, the EABFU was renamed as the Office of the Government Economist on the same day.
