    Hong Kong’s unemployment rate in the three months ending August stood at 6.1%, unchanged from the May-to-July period, the highest level since January 2005. The consumption and tourism related sectors were among the hardest hit, with a combined jobless rate of 10.9%, the highest since the SARS outbreak in 2003.

    The Bank of Japan has left its policy rate unchanged at minus 0.1% and will maintain a target yield of 0% on the 10-year JGB. It said inflation was likely to remain negative for the time being and the central bank expected only a modest improvement in the economy in the near term. The BOJ said in a statement, “Japan’s economy remains in a severe state but has started to pick up as business activity gradually resumes.”

    The Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee voted on Thursday to keep interest rates at 0.1%, in line with expectations, and also decided not to increase its asset purchase programme. The MPC warned that “the outlook for the economy remains unusually uncertain”. The Bank of England surprised investors by revealing it is examining how negative interest rates might be implemented.

    Australian unemployment unexpectedly fell in August, with more than half of the jobs lost from the Covid-19 outbreak regained. The unemployment rate dipped to 6.8% from 7.5% in July and employment surged by 111,000 beating estimates of an expected 35,000 drop.

    Oil prices have surged following the drone attack on two Saudi Arabian oil facilities over the weekend, which have halved the kingdom’s oil producing capabilities and knocked out more than 5% of the world’s supply. Brent crude oil jumped 20% at one point but trimmed gains after President Donald Trump authorised a release of oil supplies from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve to help stabilize markets.

    Credit rating agency Moody’s has cut its outlook for Hong Kong's credit rating to negative from stable but maintained its current rating. Moody's said the change in outlook reflects the increasing risk of "an erosion in the strength of Hong Kong's institutions" amid the protests.

    Norman Chan, chief executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, said yesterday there was no evidence of capital flight due to the protests and Hong Kong’s reserves are big enough to withstand any attack by short sellers on the territory’s financial system.

    Industrial output growth in China has fallen to the lowest level since 2002, rising 4.4% y/y in August. Retail sales and fixed-asset investment also missed expectations. Premier Li Keqiang warned that maintaining growth of 6% or more would be "very difficult."

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Connie Bolland of Economic Research Analysis and Brad Gibson from Alliance Bernstein. Providing the view from Japan is Naoyuki Yoshino of the Asian Development Bank Institute.

    Connie Bolland, founder and chief economist of Economic Research Analysis, thinks the surging oil price poses a significant problem to the global economy in the short term as Saudi Arabia is the world’s biggest exporter.

    Though Moody’s has cut its outlook for Hong Kong's credit rating, Brad Gibson from Alliance Bernstein says Hong Kong’s corporates and institutions access to the capital markets remains fully open.

    Naoyuki Yoshino, Dean and CEO of the Asian Development Bank Institute, says Japan has relied much on the import of oil after the tsunami and the earthquake in 2011 so the surging oil price will greatly affect Japan’s economy, especially the manufacturing sector.
