    Business & Market Discussions / View from Australia

    Hong Kong's financial secretary Paul Chan has unveiled a HK$19 billion economic support package to help the territory’s sagging economy which has been beset by ten weeks of protests. The government cut its 2019 GDP growth forecast to 0%-1% from its previous forecast of 2%-3%.

    China’s Ministry of Finance promised to take “necessary countermeasures” after President Trump's decision to impose 10% tariffs on an additional US$300bn worth of Chinese goods. China said the US had "seriously violated" agreements made between Mr Trump and Chinese Premier Xi Jinping at the G20 summit at Osaka in June. Later a spokesperson at China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Beijing “hopes the U.S. will meet China halfway” on trade issues.

    President Trump has urged President Xi Jinping to meet with protesters in Hong Kong who have been demanding democratic reforms. Mr Trump had previously suggested that he himself should meet Mr Xi to discuss the crisis in the city. He also tied the protests to a US trade deal with Beijing. He tweeted, "of course China wants to make a deal. Let them work humanely with Hong Kong first!"

    Our guests today are Francis Lun of GEO Securities and Alan Luk from Hang Seng Private Banking. With the view from down under is Toby Lawson at Societe Generale Australia.

    Alan Luk, Head of Private Banking and Trust Services at Hang Seng Private Banking, says that Hong Kong will enter a recession as companies are delaying their spending and capital investments.

    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has indicated that an interest rate cut could be on the way later this month. Speaking before the US Congress he said, “uncertainties around trade tensions and concerns about the strength of the global economy continue to weigh on the US economic outlook,” and business investment across the US has slowed “notably.”

    Consumer price inflation on the mainland rose 2.7% in June, the same as the previous month, despite a continuing surge in food prices. The price of fruit in China has jumped almost 43% since a year ago. Pork prices, which have been hit by an outbreak of deadly African swine fever, rose 3.6% m/m and 21.1% y/y, the fastest rise in three years. Producer price inflation saw zero increase y/y, ending almost three years of uninterrupted growth.
