    Business and Market Discussion

    Hong Kong Financial Secretary Paul Chan announced yesterday a budget to stabilise the economy, containing HK$120bn of counter cyclical measures. But the level of sweeteners at HK$80 billion this year, is 33% lower than last year’s HK$120 billion. The budget deficit is forecast to be a record HK$257.6 billion this year. That’s less than the government’s previous forecast of HK$300bn.

    In a budget of halves, there were several familiar measures, but at half last year’s level. The salaries tax and profits tax waiver for the coming year was halved from HK$20,000 last year to HK$10,000 this year. And the handouts to the needy were also halved, with people getting an extra half a month’s worth of welfare, old-age, and disability allowances, instead of a full month as before. Last year’s cash handout of HK$10,000 was replaced with HK$5,000 worth of electronic spending vouchers.
    Shares in Hong Kong plunged after financial secretary Paul Chan increased stamp duty from 0.1 to 0.13%. It’s the first time stamp duty in the city has been increased for almost 30 years. The Hang Seng Index tumbled 914 points or 3% to end the day at 29,718, its biggest fall in 9 months. Shares of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing fell as much as 12.3% before later trimming losses to 8.8% but still its biggest drop since 2015.
    On today’s Money Talk, reviewing the 2021-22 budget is personal wealth advisor, Enzio von Pfeil, Kenneth Wong, Tax Partner at PwC Hong Kong and Samuel Faveur, Chief Executive Officer of Mandarin Capital.

    Personal Wealth Advisor, Enzio von Pfeil, thinks that the measures contained in Hong Kong’s 2021-22 budget are "band-aids" but not a real cure for an economy affected by the pandemic.


    Samuel Faveur Chief Executive Officer at Mandarin Capital laments that the budget is not efficient enough as the measures introduced lean towards corporates and is rather weak on the social aspect.


    Kenneth Wong, Tax Partner at PwC Hong Kong thinks that the new unemployment loan scheme is unlikely to work and believes that more follow up plans and execution detail will be needed.

    Business and Market Discussion / Technologies in the education sector

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    China's exports rose at the fastest pace since February 2018 in November, and the country’s trade surplus widened to a record US$75.42bn. China's exports, in US Dollar terms, increased 21.2% y/y compared to a 11.4% jump the previous month.

    Financial Secretary Paul Chan yesterday rejected suggestions that the freezing of bank accounts belonging to people linked to national security cases risked undermining faith in the SAR's financial system. Yesterday police once again ordered HSBC to freeze the accounts of former lawmaker Ted Hui. A church, whose elderly and middle-aged volunteers had offered humanitarian aid to front-line protesters also claimed its account had been frozen by HSBC.

    However, Hong Kong stocks fell yesterday, led by the financial sector as investors worried about the impact of the freezing of the bank accounts on Hong Kong’s reputation as an international financial centre and the possibility of further US sanctions on Chinese companies and individuals. The Hang Seng Index dropped 1.2% to 26,506. The Hang Seng Financials Index fell 1.7%. Shares of HSBC fell 2%.

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Peter Churchouse of Portwood Capital and Alicia Garcia Herrero at Natixis. Talking about the education sector is Victor Cheng, Executive Director of Hong Kong Education City.

    Peter Churchouse, Founder of Portwood Capital, expects strong capital inflows into China to continue in 2021 and notes that China offers much better yields than other countries.

    Alicia Garcia Herrero, APAC Chief Economist at Natixis, says that Hong Kong isn’t doing enough to stimulate its economy and provide fiscal support compared to other regions.

    08/12/2020 - 8:24am Technologies in the education sector

    Victor Cheng, Executive Director of Hong Kong Education City, says that e-learning and artificial intelligence provide students a more personalised learning experience and Covid-19 has accelerated schools' use of technologies.
