    Hong Kong is preparing for the expected visit of President Xi Jinping tomorrow in his first trip outside the mainland since the pandemic began. It will also be his first appearance in Hong Kong since the 2019 protests. He is expected to arrive in Hong Kong today for the 25th handover anniversary on Friday for a two-day visit, although it is believed he will not stay in Hong Kong overnight, having elected to spend the night in Shenzhen instead. 

    President Xi Jinping said yesterday that China will press on with “zero-Covid” despite the economic risks and warned that  China could not afford to pursue herd immunity. He said on a trip to Wuhan that the country must protect lives at the temporary cost of lower growth. 
    At the European Central Bank’s annual conference yesterday in Portugal, the heads of the Fed, ECB and Bank of England called for rapid action to curb inflation. Jerome Powell, Christine Lagarde and Andrew Bailey warned that the era of low interest rates and moderate inflation has come to an end following the “massive geopolitical shock” of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the ongoing fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. 
    Revised first quarter US GDP data showed a weaker than expected US economy. GDP was revised down by 10% to a 1.6% decline, which is the first contraction of the economy since mid-2020.

    A two-day citywide Covid testing exercise of Macau’s 600,000 population came to an end on Tuesday. Officials said 49 people had so far been confirmed to have the virus and they asked all residents to conduct antigen self-tests today. 700 people were locked down inside the Fortuna Hotel on Tuesday after a cluster of cases were found there. Officials in the territory announced a funding package worth 10 billion patacas to help businesses and individuals hit by the mandatory testing exercise, which began on Sunday and saw schools closed and members of the public advised not to go to work. 

    Imports from China's Xinjiang region are due to be banned in the US as the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act took effect on Tuesday. Several imports from the resource-rich region, including cotton and tomatoes, have already been banned from the US. Under the new rules, firms will have to prove imports from the region are not produced using forced labour, an accusation that Beijing denies. China's Ministry of Commerce said it firmly opposes the US ban on product imports from Xinjiang and that it is not conducive to the stability of global infrastructure and supply chains. 
    Sales of previously owned homes in the US dropped for the fourth straight month, but the median home price hit a record high. Existing home sales declined in May by 3.4% compared with April.The median US home price rose to $407,600, the first time it has climbed above $400,000, and a 14.8% increase from a year ago. 
    Global stocks rebounded Tuesday after falling into a bear market last week. The FTSE All-World Index jumped 1.9% yesterday after tumbling 5.7% last week and slipping into a bear market. It’s still down over 21% from last November’s record high.
