    Business and Market Discussion / View from mainland China

    Hong Kong will from today scrap its stringent hotel quarantine measures for incoming travellers which have been in place for two and a half years. Instead of the current "three plus four" arrangement, where travellers have to quarantine in a designated hotel for three days and spend another four days monitoring their health, arrivals will be given an amber health code for three days, barring them from places like restaurants, bars and gyms but they will be allowed to go to work and attend school, as well as visit places where vaccine pass checks are not mandatory. It is the most substantial move the SAR has taken to date to end its pandemic isolation, and Mr. Lee signalled more easing is likely as the city tries to repair its status as a global financial centre. 

    Global stocks have sold off for a second straight week after a swathe of central banks raised interest rates last week with 10 out of 15 central banks that met increasing rates from between 25bps to as much as 100bps. The FTSE All-World index of global stocks fell 2.1% on Friday, bringing its loss over the week to 5%, the worst since June. 
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Alex Wong of Alex KY Wong Asset Management and Sean Darby at Jefferies Hong Kong. With a view from Mainland China is Brock Silvers from Kaiyuan Capital.

    Alex Wong, Director of Alex KY Wong Asset Management, thinks that the SAR's decision on lifting quarantine measures will not attract tourists and will likely not have an immediate impact on the city's economy.

    Sean Darby, Chief Global Equities Strategist at Jefferies Hong Kong, notes that Central Banks around the world are fighting to compete with the US due to worries over imported inflation and a depreciation over their currencies.

    Brock Silvers, Chief Investment Officer at Kaiyuan Capital, notes that the Hang Seng Index has not bottomed out yet despite hitting record lows and thinks that the Hong Kong markets will continue to be at a bareish state.



    Budget Review for 2022-2023

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    Financial Secretary Paul Chan on Wednesday delivered his budget for the next fiscal year and pledged over HK$54bn out of a budget of HK$170bn to fight Covid-19 “on all fronts and at full speed.” The headline measure is a new round of HK$10,000 electronic spending coupons for all permanent residents and new immigrants to Hong Kong who are aged 18 or above. They will come in two instalments with the first HK$5,000 being distributed in April. That’s part of a raft of one-off measures to boost the economy, including tax cuts, property rate concessions and electricity subsidies for residents. In an unprecedented move, there will be rental relief for some small firms that can’t pay their rent for up to six months, with landlords barred from taking legal action against them. But the measures come at a price. The forecast budget surplus of HK$18.9bn this year is projected to turn into a deficit of over HK$60bn, or 1.9% of GDP, in the next financial year, in the wake of the government’s massive spending.

    Bank of China and HSBC have announced that their branches will no longer provide services on Saturdays from March 5 in light of the Covid-19 outbreak. In a statement released on Wednesday, HSBC said it had balanced the community's need for normal banking services and the protection of its employees and customers. Bank of China announced that services at more than 100 branches across Hong Kong had been suspended until further notice.
    In a volatile session on Wall Street stocks closed lower for the fourth day in a row, as traders weighed up the impact of sanctions on Russia. The S&P 500 index dropped further into correction territory falling 1.8% to 4,225, leaving it 12% lower than its January record high. The Dow closed at the lowest level of 2022 ending the day with a loss of 465 points, taking it to 33,132.
    On today’s Money Talk we’re joined by Personal Wealth Adviser, Enzio Von Pfeil, Andrew Sullivan of Outset Global, and Agnes Wong from PwC Hong Kong.

    24/02/2022 - 8:00am Budget Review for 2022 -2023

    Personal Wealth Adviser, Enzio Von Pfeil thinks that the Financial Secretary could have created more jobs and solved more long term issues such as labour and housing in his budget.

    Andrew Sullivan, Managing Director, Outset Global suggests that the budget does not provide enough help for small businesses to survive the SAR's strict anti-Covid regulations.

    Agnes Wong, Tax Partner, PwC Hong Kong thinks that the soon-to-be-released electronic consumption vouchers would provide a good boost to the SAR's economy.
