    Business and Market Discussion / View from Japan

    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.

    James Wong, Chief investment Officer (Overseas) and Managing Director at Lead Securities thinks that cutting the quarantine period for incoming arrivals to Hong Kong is a good start, but thinks it is not enough to bring tourists back to the SAR.

    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.

    Business and Market Discussion / Rise in interest rates

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    The Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has left Taiwan after a high-profile visit that infuriated China, and rattled local financial markets. In talks with Taiwanese legislators, Ms. Pelosi pledged closer economic ties between the US and Taiwan, adding that a trade agreement with Taiwan may be “imminent.” China’s General Administration of Customs has levied new import bans on more than 2,000 Taiwanese products. China also halted natural sand exports to Taiwan. 

    The S&P Global Hong Kong PMI edged down to a three-month low of 52.3 in July 2022 from 52.4 a month earlier. However, this was the fourth straight month of growth in the private sector, with both output and new orders rising and firms increasing their buying activity. However, orders from China fell for the 14th successive month and foreign demand declined for a second straight month. 
    The Caixin China General Services PMI increased to 55.5 in July 2022 from 54.5 in June, the second straight month of expansion in the sector, amid an improving domestic COVID-19 situation and easing lockdown measures. It was also the sharpest increase in the sector since April 2021, as new orders rose at a faster pace. But the employment index deteriorated for the seventh consecutive month. 
    Opec and its allies have agreed an oil production increase of 100,000 barrels a day, or 0.1% of global demand. The increase is one of the smallest in the oil cartel’s history and is likely to cause disappointment in western capitals. 
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Personal Wealth Adviser Enzio Von Pfeil and Louisa Fok, China Equity Strategist at Bank of Singapore. Later we talk with Andrew Fennell, Senior Director of Sovereign Ratings at Fitch Ratings.
