    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.

    Business and Market Discussion

    The global equity market selloff continued into Asian trading on Tuesday, but US stocks snapped a four-day losing streak. US shares are on track for their first monthly loss since March. Banks have come under pressure after accusations that several global banks, including HSBC and Standard Chartered, have allowed illicit international payments amounting to US$2 trillion in total, to flow through their accounts, despite being warned that they were suspicious. A sell-off in shares of HSBC and Standard Chartered deepened yesterday in Hong Kong, taking their losses to more than 7% over two days.

    The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development has warned that the Covid-19 pandemic will destroy at least 100 million jobs worldwide this year and push between 90m and 120m people in the developing world into absolute poverty. The group said developing economies faced “another lost decade” because of extra spending on health and collapsing export earnings, which had left a financing gap of US$2tn to US$3tn, which the international community had failed to address.

    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned the British people, in a televised address, that the Covid-19 virus had begun to spread in an “exponential way” and warned that the coming months will be “unquestionably difficult”. He made his comments as the UK government tightened social distancing requirements including guidance to work from home, and a 10pm curfew for bars, restaurants and pubs. The new restrictions could last for six months.

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Andrew Freris of Ecognosis Advisory, Patrick Bennett from CIBC World Markets, and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood.

    Andrew Freris, CEO of Ecognosis Advisory says that the Hong Kong government should do more to support the local economy as the territory's fiscal reserves remain robust and could even withstand a deficit.

    Patrick Bennett, Macro Strategist at CIBC World Markets highlights that accommodative monetary and fiscal policies help to maintain higher asset prices but it is not having the same impact on consumer spending.

    RTHK's International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood warns that decentralisation prevents the US from containing the Covid-19 pandemic as individual states can implement measures at their own discretion.
