    Business and Market Discussions

    UK Prime Minister Theresa May is writing to the EU to ask for Brexit to be postponed until 30 June or longer. The cabinet couldn’t agree on how long the delay should be for, but one ministerial source said it could be up to two years. EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said the EU wouldn’t grant the request without a "concrete plan" from the UK about what they would do with it.

    US officials are reportedly concerned that Chinese negotiators are pushing back against American demands in trade talks. Bloomberg said the Chinese have become less accommodative because they haven’t received assurances from the Trump administration that tariffs imposed on their exports will be lifted. However, the Wall Street Journal struck a more optimistic tone reporting that talks are in their final stages and Robert Lighthizer and Steven Mnuchin plan to fly to Beijing next week, to meet with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He.

    Joining today’s Money Talk are Stewart Aldcroft of CitiTrust, Steve Wang from CITIC CLSA and Barry Wood, RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent in Washington D.C.

    Stewart Aldcroft, Chairman of CitiTrust, says that the Fed is determined to raise rates, and it will be good for the markets if rates are increased marginally.

    Steve Wang, Senior Credit Analyst from CITIC CLSA, however, comments that the market is expecting a rate cut by the end of 2019. Mr. Wang adds that the Fed should come up with a better action plan and do something new in tackling inflation.

    RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood says that the enforcement of any trade deal arising from the negotiations with China will be critical to the US side.

    Hong Kong’s Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Edward Yau, says the proposed new US tariffs on Chinese goods will hit Hong Kong hard with almost half the Chinese exports going to the US via Hong Kong being affected. He said that a second round of tariffs would affect about HK$130 billion worth of Chinese exports to the US via Hong Kong – about 2.2% of the city’s total exports.

    The IMF has warned that the global expansion has plateaued and become less balanced because of rising trade tensions. The Fund says that Donald Trump’s imposition of tariffs on imports could knock almost 15% off global growth by 2020.

    In the latest economic data, China’s economy softened a little in the second quarter but was still above the government’s target of around 6.5% growth. US consumer spending rose for the fifth month in a row last month.

    Joining this morning’s panel discussion are Wendy Liu from Nomura and Jack Siu of Credit Suisse. Providing the view from Japan is Nick Smith from CLSA in Tokyo.
