    Hong Kong Chief Executive John Lee has announced that from Friday, people arriving in the city will have to spend three days in hotel quarantine, instead of the current seven. After their quarantine at a designated hotel, arrivals will undergo “medical surveillance” for four more days and while they can go out, go to work, or visit malls, they won't be able to enter high risk places that check vaccine passes, such as bars and restaurants. Such people will be given a "yellow code" on their LeaveHomeSafe app to restrict their movements. People already in quarantine will be able to leave early after three days from today, providing they test negative.

    Mainland China reported a total of 807 new Covid cases on Monday, with more than half centred on Hainan Island. A Covid-19 testing mandate was extended Sunday to the entire province of Hainan. The resort island has placed more cities, including the provincial capital, Haikou, into lockdown. 25,000 tourists were stuck in hotels in Sanya. The outbreak has spread to 10 cities and counties in Hainan and coincides with Hainan’s peak travel season.
    Singapore Prime minister Lee Hsien Loong warned yesterday that Asia faces decades of “turbulence” because of geopolitical challenges including worsening US-China relations and the war in the Ukraine. He said the next decades for the region would not be as stable and peaceful as those in recent years. Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s National Day celebrations, he said, “US-China relations are worsening, with intractable issues, deep suspicions, and limited engagement between them. Furthermore, miscalculations or mishaps can easily make things much worse.”  He added that economic issues were also a challenge and with the world unlikely to return to low interest rates and inflation levels.

    Nitin Dialdas, Chief Investment Officer at Mandarin Capital suggests that commodities prices will slowly come down as inflation has reached its peak, but wages will continue to soar.

    A Covid-19 outbreak is spreading in eastern China. The mainland’s National Health Commission China reported Monday 380 new Covid-19 cases for July 3, following 385 the previous day. 287 cases were reported in Anhui province, where two counties are in lockdown and mass testing is taking place. There were also 56 cases from neighbouring Jiangsu province, which is the second biggest contributor to China’s economic output and a crucial global manufacturing hub for the solar sector. 

    India’s trade gap also hit a record high in June because of the rising cost of imports. The deficit rose to US$25.6 billion in June, from US$24.3 billion in May, preliminary data released by the Commerce Ministry showed Monday. Imports jumped 51% in June from a year ago, while exports rose 16.8%. India imports about 85% of its annual oil requirements.
    Financial regulators in Hong Kong and on the mainland jointly announced on Monday that they are working to develop a new mutual market access programme that would enable offshore investors to execute interest rate derivatives transactions with onshore investors in the mainland. In a joint statement, the regulators said the programme, Swap Connect, would be an effective way for offshore investors to manage interest rate risks arising from investments in the mainland bond market. 
    ETF Connect launched Monday providing Hong Kong investors with access to 83 China-based ETFs with a value of around 600 billion yuan (US$90bn). It also gives onshore traders access to four Hong Kong-based ETFs, including the Tracker Fund.
