    Business and Market Discussions / View from Australia / Big Data in Healthcare / Entrepreneurs : Uber Eats

    Global risk appetite has improved overnight on hopes of an easing in US-China trade tensions and a further recovery for the Turkish lira.

    China and the US will hold trade talks later this month in Washington. China's Vice Commerce Minister Wang Shouwen will meet with US Under Secretary for International Affairs David Malpass to discuss US-China trade issues. Donald Trump said yesterday that, “we very much want to talk to China but they’re not able to give us an agreement that is acceptable, so we’re not going to do any deal until we get one that’s fair to our country.”

    The Turkish lira has continued its rally from record lows reached on Monday, but it is well off its highs of the day after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned that Washington is preparing more sanctions for Turkey due to the lack of progress on the release of Pastor Brunson. Turkey’s finance minister, Berat Albayrak, set out plans to slash spending but stopped short of unveiling other plans that would lead to a stabilisation of the crisis.

    Exports from the eurozone to the US rose by 3.9% in the first half of the year whilst imports from the dropped by 2.4%.

    The HKMA bought another HK$5.02 billion on Thursday morning to prop up the local currency after buying total HK$11.77 billion in three purchases on Wednesday.

    Business and Market Discussions

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    In an historic first ever meeting between the leaders of the U.S. and North Korea in Singapore yesterday President Trump and Kim Jong-un signed an agreement in which North Korea pledged to work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. The summit has failed to excite US markets though and South Korea’s Kospi index closed virtually unchanged. The Korean won was firmer.

    Electric car maker Tesla is to cut 9% of its workforce to bring down costs and become profitable. Tesla has more than 37,000 staff and the layoffs are thought to be the first in the company’s 15-year history. CEO Elon Musk said the cuts will not affect its ability to hit Model 3 production targets in the coming months.

    US consumer price inflation has hit its highest level in 6 years. The data comes just before the US Federal Reserve is expected to announce a rise in US interest rates tomorrow.

    Chinese telecoms firm ZTE will resume trading on the Hong Kong stock exchange today following an almost 2-month suspension, after an agreement was made between the White House and China to save the company. ZTE will resume business operations “as soon as practicable” after the sales ban is lifted, the company said.

    Hong Kong Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, announced yesterday that the government was setting up an independent statutory commission to investigate sub-par works at Hung Hom Station on the over budget Shatin-to-Central rail link that left platforms not securely fixed to the walls. MTR bosses have been accused of changing their story over the safety scare and of trying to cover up the problem. Some lawmakers are calling for MTR Corporation chairman Frederick Ma to step down over the scandal.

    On today’s Money Talk, analysing the latest business developments are Stewart Aldcroft of CitiTrust, Mark Michelson from IMA Asia and on the phone from Washington D.C., RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood.

    Stewart Aldcroft, Chairman of CitiTrust, comments that the US attitude towards Canada on trade is not the right way nor the right language for international politics.

    Mark Michelson, Chairman of the Asia CEO Forum at IMA Asia, says that a lot of work needs to be done within the region before denuclearization of the Korean peninsula can be achieved.

    RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood says that the latest U.S. inflation report is within the Fed’s comfort zone.
