    In his first 24 hours as President, Joe Biden has issued 25 executive orders to unwind some of the Trump agenda of the last four years. These include orders for the US to rejoin the World Health Organisation, the Paris Climate Accord, a commitment to racial equality, a "100-day masking challenge" to promote the wearing of face masks across the US, and an order overturning Donald Trump's travel ban. He also signed another 10 orders Thursday to boost the fight against Covid. He vowed to prioritise the "four overlapping and compounding crises" of COVID-19, the economy, climate change and racial inequality.

    Within hours of President Biden’s inauguration, China’s three largest telecoms companies, China Telecom, China Mobile and Unicom applied to the New York Stock Exchange to reverse their delistings which were ordered by Donald Trump in November. The NYSE has 25 business days to schedule the review.

    Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index surged through the 30,000 level yesterday for the first time since May 2019, before profit taking set in. In the morning session, the benchmark index hit an intraday high of 30,135 before closing the day 0.1% lower at 29,927. The Hang Seng has rallied 9.9%, in the best start to a year since 1985.

    Business and Market Discussion

    The New York Stock Exchange said yesterday it will no longer delist China’s three biggest state-owned telecommunications companies. Bloomberg is reporting that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called NYSE President Stacey Cunningham Tuesday to express his disapproval with the exchange’s surprise decision to spare China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom from being delisted.

    The World Bank has forecast that global GDP would grow by 4% in 2021. However, the multilateral lender warned that the global economic recovery from Covid-19 will rely heavily on the successful rollout of vaccines, and any delay risks more than halving this year’s growth rate.

    Polls will close at 8am HK time in the US state of Georgia where voters are electing two Senators in a special run-off election which will decide control of Congress. There has been a record turnout for a runoff race with more than 3 million Georgians, or 40% of the electorate, voting in advance of polling day.

    President Donald Trump, still seeking ways to reverse his election defeat, falsely claimed Tuesday that “the Vice President has the power to reject fraudulently chosen electors”, when a joint session of Congress meets later today to certify the results of the Electoral College.

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Stewart Aldcroft of CitiTrust, Iris Pang from ING Wholesale Banking and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood.

    Stewart Aldcroft, Chairman of CitiTrust, warns that a delay in President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration should not be ruled out and investors need to brace for further uncertainty.

    Iris Pang, Greater China Chief Economist at ING Asia, says that listing in Hong Kong gives firms the advantage of attracting flow from inside and outside of mainland China, thanks to the Shanghai-Hong Kong stock connect.

    RTHK's International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood says that the New York Stock Exchange's refusal to delist sanctioned Chinese telcos was likely done on pressure from investors, as lawsuits could follow.
