     Hong Kong has signed an agreement with Indonesia for conducting automatic exchange of financial account information in tax matters (AEOI), a Government spokesman said today (June 16).

The others are Belgium, Canada, Guernsey, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
