    主持人:Peter Lewis

    US and European stocks have seen a second day of heavy selling after Japan and Italy warned about the spread of the coronavirus and investor concerns intensified over the global impact of the outbreak. Federal Reserve vice-chair Richard Clarida said the central bank was monitoring the latest developments and it anticipated a noticeable impact on Chinese growth in the first quarter. But he said it’s still too soon to speculate about the impact on the global economy, or whether the epidemic will lead to a material change in the outlook. Standard Chartered downgraded its 2020 GDP forecast for Hong Kong, lowering it to negative 2.4% from negative 1.5% due to the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. Against that background, Hong Kong Financial Secretary Paul Chan will deliver his 2020/21 budget this morning under pressure from across the political spectrum to deliver a package of tax cuts, cash handouts to Hong Kong residents and relief measures for businesses. On today’s Money Talk we’re joined by Stewart Aldcroft of CitiTrust, Tariq Dennison from GFM Asset Management and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood.
