    Business and Market Discussion

    The Hong Kong government yesterday announced a further relaxation of social distancing rules for bars, restaurants and clubs after the territory recorded zero local coronavirus cases for 14 consecutive days. The SAR will also reduce the Covid-19 quarantine period to seven days for vaccinated international travellers and is due to start on June 30 for local residents. Several Hong Kong businesses said the easing of the ‘vaccine bubble’, quarantine rules was too conservative and too late.

    Apple Daily halted more of its services on Tuesday, just a day after warning that the media outlet's entire operations could come to an end by the weekend including its English service and online financial news. Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, accused the United States of "beautifying acts" that endanger national security with its criticism of the Hong Kong authorities' crackdown on Apple Daily, saying the territory's national security law must be enforced.
    On Tuesday, US shares extended gains into a second day. The S&P 500 ended just short of a new closing record, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite climbed to an all-time high. Asian stocks rebounded yesterday after US shares recouped all their losses from Monday. However, Hong Kong stocks failed to progress, with the Hang Seng Index down 0.6% to a one-month low.
    On today’s Money Talk we’re joined by Stewart Aldcroft of CitiTrust, Dickie Wong from Kingston Securities and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood.

    Stewart Aldcroft, Chairman of CitiTrust suggests that the US Federal Reserve should be worried about the long term effects of inflation instead of short term spikes.

    Dickie Wong, Head of Research at Kingston Securities thinks that the new spending vouchers can give a boost to Hong Kong’s economy to some extent and thinks that different social groups can benefit from the incentive.

    RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood, reports that the imminent closure of Apple Daily has gained international interest and he is worried about the implications for Hong Kong as an international media hub.

    The private sector in Hong Kong continued to expand in April. The IHS Markit PMI dropped slightly to 50.3 in April from 50.5 a month earlier but remains above the 50-point level that separates expansion from contraction. Business confidence improved to the highest in more than seven years, while employment increased for the third month running.

    China recorded 230 million tourist trips during the Labour Day holiday, up 120% y/y, and an increase of 3.2% from pre-pandemic levels, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Domestic tourism revenue rose 138% y/y, but only reached 77% of pre-pandemic levels.
    The US services sector expanded at a near-record pace last month as demand soared following the easing of pandemic restrictions and because of fiscal stimulus. The Institute for Supply Management’s services index dropped to 62.7 in April, down from 63.7 the previous month, but still the second-fastest expansion on record. 
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Personal Wealth Adviser, Enzio Von Pfeil and Nate Taplin from the Wall Street Journal. Discussing cryptocurrencies and decentralised finance is Jesse Co, General Manager at Blockchain Solutions.
