    Business and Market Discussion

    China’s economic chief, Vice-Premier Liu He, and US Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, held a virtual conference on Tuesday, at the request of the United States. It was their first call since October. The official Xinhua News Agency reported that the two sides had a “pragmatic and frank” exchange on macroeconomic, tariff and supply chain issues as well as rising commodity prices and food security challenges. 

    The talks come as President Biden is considering a rollback of some of the Trump Administration’s US$300bn of US tariffs on Chinese consumer goods this week, along with a new probe into industrial subsidies that may lead to more duties in strategic areas like technology. 
    Activity in China’s private services sector staged a stronger rebound than expected last month. The Caixin Services PMI for June came in at 54.5, marking the highest level in 11 months, compared to 41.4 in the previous month and beating economists’ expectations for a reading of 49.6. The index was boosted by slowing input cost inflation and a rise in new orders, while a sub-index for employment showed businesses had slowed the rate at which they were cutting jobs. 
    New Hong Kong Chief Executive, John Lee, was cautious on when there could be a further reduction in quarantine requirements for arrivals into the SAR. Speaking at a media briefing yesterday, he said he’s asked Health Secretary Lo Chung-mau to review anti-epidemic measures, to strike a balance between infection control and people’s convenience. 
    Hong Kong’s retirement scheme for workers, the Mandatory Provident Fund, has suffered its biggest half-yearly loss since the scheme was launched in December 2000, in the first six months of 2022. According to data provided by MPF Ratings, an independent pension research firm, the fund lost 12.96% in the first six months of 2022. That translates into a loss of HK$33,300 for each of the 4.6 million members of the scheme. 
    On today’s Money Talk we’re joined by Asian Fund Management Industry Consultant, Stewart Aldcroft, Pete Sweeney, Asia Editor at Reuters Breakingviews and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood.

    Asian Fund Management Industry Consultant, Stewart Aldcroft notes that European nations are heavily affected by rising fuel prices due to the weakening of the euro.

    Pete Sweeney, Asia Editor at Reuters Breakingviews suggests that China's economy may be at risk of a slowdown if the world goes into recession, as the country relies heavily on exports.

    RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood believes that the Biden Administration will shortly remove some tariffs on Chinese goods and make others more targeted.

    Hong Kong CE Carrie Lam announced Tuesday that the government will scrap most quarantine exemptions granted to arrivals from the mainland and overseas. Only border-crossings necessary for the city's daily operations or for emergencies will continue to be exempt from quarantine. Mrs. Lam said, “this is to give confidence to the central authorities that it is safe to open the border." She added Hong Kong's primary advantage is being a "gateway" to the rest of China. 

    The US Federal Communications Commission has banned China Telecom from operating in America, citing national security concerns. The telecoms firm must cease operations in the US within 60 days. 
    China has released a long-awaited blueprint to hit peak greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, just days ahead of the UN’s COP26 climate summit in Glasgow. The State Council’s policy document said that from 2025, all new buildings would be built according to green standards and by 2030, 40% of new vehicles, including ships and cars, would be powered by clean energy. However, it stopped short of any firm commitments to reduce reliance on coal. 
    On today’s Money Talk we’re joined by Kenny Wen at Everbright Sun Hung Kai, Nitin Dialdas of Mandarin Capital and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood.

    Kenny Wen, Wealth Management Strategist at Everbright Sun Hung Kai suggests that it would be hard for mainland China to reduce its reliance on natural resources such as coal, as two-thirds of the country's power generation comes from coal.

    Nitin Dialdas, Chief Investment Officer at Mandarin Capital thinks that the SAR’s strict quarantine measures are leading to a loss of talent from the city and is causing Hong Kong to lose its status as an international hub.

    RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood notes that Sino-US business relations are thawing and improving after the phone call between Lu He and Janet Yellen.
