    Progress with the vaccination campaign in the United States has sparked a sharp rebound in jobs and spending. Initial jobless claims fell by 193,000 to 576,000 in the week ending April 10, a pandemic era low. Retail sales surged by a seasonally adjusted 9.8% in March compared with the previous month, the second biggest increase on record and blowing past economists’ forecasts for a 5.9% rebound.

    Hong Kong’s Covid-19 vaccination programme will be expanded to include residents aged 16 to 30, with bookings starting from April 23, the government announced yesterday. The lowering of the age requirement means another 1.08 million people will be eligible to get a coronavirus vaccine and the programme will cover 88% of the population.
    On Wall Street, the blowout economic data has sent US shares to record highs. The S&P 500 index jumped 1.1% to close at a record high of 4,170. The Dow added 305 points to trade above 34,000 for the first time.

    Business and Market Discussion

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    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.
