    Producer price rises in the US have added to inflation fears as the wholesale cost of goods and services rose more than forecast last month. The US producer price index rose 6.2% in April from the same period a year ago, exceeding economists’ forecasts for a 5.9% annual increase. Month-on-month the advance was 0.6%. Core producer prices, which strip out volatile food and energy prices, rose 4.1% from a year ago and 0.7% from the previous month, also exceeding economists’ expectations.

    Hong Kong’s economy rebounded sharply in the first quarter, after declining for a record six quarters, posting year-on-year growth of 7.8% growth. That was the fastest pace in 11 years. The quarter-on-quarter expansion reached 5.3%, well above economists’ forecasts of 0.7%. Financial Secretary Paul Chan estimates the economy will expand 3.5% to 5.5% in 2021.

    The Hong Kong Monetary Authority's chief executive, Eddie Yue, warned yesterday that Hong Kong's low Covid vaccination rate could threaten the city's status as a financial hub. He warned that Hong Kong could be left out of future travel bubbles between international financial centres if its vaccination rate does not catch up and that will affect the competitiveness of us being a regional or international financial centre.
    Hong Kong’s Exchange Fund posted a HK$11.6 billion (US$1.5bn) gain in investment income in the first quarter. That's down 90% on the previous quarter but compares to a HK$112 billion loss in the same period last year. The total size of the fund, which is used to defend the city’s exchange rate peg, stood at HK$4.54 trillion (US$584bn) at the end of March.
