    Cathay Pacific has announced that 8,500 jobs will be cut, about a quarter of its total global staff, and its regional subsidiary Cathay Dragon has ceased operations. Financial Secretary Paul Chan said, “as Hong Kong’s most important local airline, if this life-or-death issue is not properly addressed, the situation would harm Hong Kong’s international aviation hub status and development in the region, and adversely impact other local economic activities to the detriment of the overall interests of Hong Kong.”

    The International Monetary Fund has warned that the economic recovery in Asia will be “a long slog,” despite the faster than expected rebound in China. The IMF lowered its regional growth forecast to −2.2% in 2020, 0.6 percentage points lower than the forecast in June.

    The Trump Administration says it hopes to agree to a new economic stimulus package with Democrats in Congress within the next 48 hours. The White House has agreed to measures worth up to US $1.88 trillion, but that’s still below the US$2.2 trillion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been pushing for. But Republican leaders in the Senate have warned against a deal before the election.

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by personal wealth advisor, Enzio von Pfeil and Alex Frew McMillan, writer at Dragonfly Media. With a view from Taiwan is Ross Feingold at SafePro Group.

    Personal Wealth Advisor Enzio von Pfeil says that Cathay Pacific's restructuring and job cuts are setting a precedent and other large local companies could follow suit, something he warns might amplify social unrest.

    Alex Frew McMillan, Writer at Dragonfly Media highlights that Cathay Pacific is in a trickier position than mainland airlines as it has no domestic routes to rely on.

    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.

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