    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

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    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.
