    House Democrats in the US are crafting a new US$2.4 trillion package of stimulus measures. However, this is smaller than the $3.4 trillion package the House passed in May, and is much larger than what Senate Republicans have said they would accept or the US$1.5 trillion President Trump has indicated he’d be willing to go to.

    A US district judge has given the Trump Administration until 2:30 p.m. today to delay its ban on video sharing app TikTok or appear in court on Sunday to defend the ban. The government has ordered technology companies to remove TikTok from its app stores on Sunday if ByteDance doesn’t complete a sale to an American company this weekend.

    Australian bank Westpac has been given the largest fine in the country’s corporate history. The bank has been told to pay a A$1.3bn (US$0.9bn) fine for breaching money laundering laws and failing to adequately report over 19 million suspicious international transactions, some of which were linked to child exploitation.

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Francis Lun of GEO Securities and Pete Sweeney at Reuters Breakingviews. With a view from Australia is Toby Lawson from Societe Generale Australia.

    Hong Kong’s Financial Secretary Paul Chan said yesterday the government has spent more than HK$300bn on economic relief measures, equivalent to as much as 11% of the territory's GDP. The fiscal deficit for 2020-21 will be more than HK$300bn and the fiscal reserves will fall to about HK$800bn, which is close to the level seen in 2003 after the Sars crisis. Chief Executive Carrie Lam said the government would launch a new round of its virus relief fund to try and stimulate the economy out of recession. But it appears there will be no further cash handouts.

    Retail sales in China returned to growth for the first time this year climbing 0.5% year-on-year in August compared to July’s 1.1% fall. Industrial output for the period January to August also returned to growth.

    The World Trade Organization has ruled that some of the US tariffs imposed on Chinese goods, starting in 2018, violated global trade rules. The US imposed tariffs on US$360bn of Chinese imports, which a WTO panel ruled were discriminatory and excessive.

    Jack Siu, Director & Senior APAC Strategist at Credit Suisse sees further improvement in China's economy but warns that recovery doesn't mean normalcy.
