    Business and Market Discussion / Oil markets

    The Hong Kong government has announced a HK$137 billion package of measures to help businesses stay afloat and workers receive their salaries during the coronavirus pandemic. MTR fares will also come down and taxpayers will be allowed to put off paying their bills. Financial Secretary Paul Chan said the government’s finances were "still sound". The total sum of all the relief measures announced so far will cost Hong Kong close to $290 billion, or 10% of the city's GDP. The World Trade Organization is predicting a severe decline in international commerce of between 13% and 32% this year. The more pessimistic case would amount to a decline in global trade similar to what happened in the great depression 90 years ago but in a shorter period of time. On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Personal Wealth Advisor, Enzio von Pfeil, and Alex Frew McMillan, Writer at Dragonfly Media. Updating us on the oil market is Vandana Hari, CEO of Vanda Insights.

    Enzio von Pfeil, Personal Wealth Advisor says that the government's latest HK$137 billion stimulus package will have a bandage effect on Hong Kong's domestic economy but he doesn’t expect a full recovery until the third quarter of 2021, depending largely on the course of the US economy.

    Alex Frew McMillan, Writer at Dragonfly Media is worried that the stimulus package which is being made to employers won’t filter down to employees.

    US jobless claims surged last week as the coronavirus pandemic shut businesses across America. The number of people filing for unemployment benefits jumped by a record breaking 3.3 million people from 282,000 the previous week. 

    Singapore's GDP growth tumbled by an annualised 10.6% in the first quarter of 2020 from the previous quarter, the sharpest drop in more than a decade. The city state downgraded its 2020 GDP growth forecast to between minus 4% and minus 1%. 

    Singapore has tapped into its reserves for only the second time in history and announced a massive S$48 billion (US$33.7 billion) stimulus plan to combat the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Combined with the measures announced in the budget it brings the total fiscal boost to S$55 billion, or 11% of GDP. 

    Hong Kong’s Census and Statistics Department reported yesterday exports from the territory slumped 12% in the first two months of the year. Imports fell by 9.3% leaving a trade deficit of HK$69.1 billion in the two-month period.

    Joining us on today’s Money Talk are Francis Lun of GEO Securities and Kenny Wen from Everbright Sun Hung Kai. With the view from Australia is Toby Lawson at Societe Generale Australia.
