    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.

    Retail sales growth in China slowed in April and missed economists’ forecasts. Sales increased 17.7% from a year earlier, according to the National Bureau of Statistics, versus the expected 25% growth and the 34.2% growth in March. Industrial production on the mainland increased 9.8% in April from a year earlier versus expected 10% growth and 14.1% growth in March.

    The average price of new homes across 70 major cities in China jumped 4.8% in April, from a year ago, the biggest increase in eight months. Prices increased in 62 of the 70 cities tracked by the National Bureau of Statistics. New home prices are now at the highest level in five and a half years.
    The Hong Kong government yesterday confirmed that the SAR's "travel bubble" with Singapore won't get off the ground on May 26 as planned. The scheme was originally slated to be launched in November last year but was deferred after Hong Kong suffered a spike in Covid-19 cases. This time a surge in infections in Singapore was to blame.
