    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 / View from Japan

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    China’s economy grew at a faster pace at the end of last year than before the Covid-19 pandemic, driven by strong growth in manufacturing. The mainland's National Bureau of Statistics said the country’s GDP grew 2.3% in 2020 to jump above 100 trillion yuan for the first time ever.


    However, retail sales on the mainland disappointed, growing 4.6% in December compared to 5.0% in November and missing forecasts of 5.5% growth. Retail sales contracted by 3.9% overall last year, down from 8.0% growth in 2019.

    Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam, speaking at the Asian Financial Forum yesterday, said Hong Kong can expect an economic recovery in the second half of 2021. She said the territory’s GDP was expected to show a 6.1% decline for 2020 but “if the vaccines are as successful as we expect, there will be real momentum for recovery in the second half of this year.”

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Peter Churchouse of Portwood Capital and William Ma from Noah Holdings. With a view from Japan is Tokyo-based journalist and author, William Pesek.

    William Ma, Chief Investment Officer at Noah Holdings, expects China's domestic consumption to grow in 2021 with a middle class consumption upgrade.
