    US producer prices dropped sharply in July because of a steep plunge in energy costs. The producer price index, which tracks the prices that businesses receive for their goods and services, declined 0.5% in July from a month earlier, the first negative monthly print since April 2020. This was a sharp drop from June’s 1% increase in prices and was below analysts’ expectations of a 0.2% rise. 

    The People’s Bank of China said consumer inflation will likely exceed 3% in some months during the second half of the year but pledged to safeguard the economy. The PBoC’s second quarter monetary policy implementation report said the central bank needs to guard against structural inflation pressures and will not “flood” the economy with stimulus.
    Singapore has revised down its full-year growth forecast after the economy unexpectedly contracted in the second quarter. GDP in the April to June period shrank 0.2% compared with growth of 0.8% in the first quarter and missing analysts’ forecasts for growth of 0.3%. Year-on-year, the economy grew 4.4% in the second quarter, slower than the government’s 4.8% growth forecast in its advance estimate. Singapore’s Trade and Industry Ministry downgraded its full year growth forecast to a range of 3%-4% compared to a 3%-5% target made previously. 
    Latest government figures show Hong Kong's population fell by a record 1.6% in the past year, with a net outflow of people accounting for nearly 80% of the decrease. The city's population dropped by 121,500 from mid-2021 to 7,29 million in mid-2022. It's the second year in a row the population has dropped. Population expert Paul Yip, a professor from the University of Hong Kong’s Department of Social Work and Social Administration, said the outflow of people will have some significant impact on the workforce in Hong Kong and on economic development as the group of people leaving is mainly young graduates or young couples, who play a very critical part in the manpower of Hong Kong.

    The Bank of England has raised interest rates by the most in 27 years. The UK central bank hiked the base rate by 50bps yesterday, taking borrowing costs to 1.75%. BoE governor, Andrew Bailey, warned that the UK faces a very big inflation shock, predicting inflation will rise to 13.3%, the highest since 1980. That would leave households facing two consecutive years of declines in their disposable incomes, the biggest squeeze since these records began in 1964. Mr. Bailey also warned that the UK faces a long recession. The Bank forecast that the country will enter recession from the fourth quarter of 2022, with the downturn expected to last for five quarters and GDP shrinking by 2.1% from peak to trough.

    The number of people applying for unemployment aid in the US reached the highest level in more than six months last week, as labour demand cools. There were 260,000 initial jobless claims on a seasonally adjusted basis, the largest weekly tally since mid-January and slightly above economists’ expectations. The four-week average rose to 254,750, its highest point since November. 
    China has started five days of military exercises in the seas around Taiwan in an attempt to punish it following US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to the island. Ballistic missiles were fired into waters close to ports in Taiwan and directly over the island. Taiwan said  the drills amount to an air and sea blockade against the island. Since Monday night, when Mrs. Pelosi’s visit was first confirmed, the China Customs Administration has suspended imports of more than 2,000 of about 3,200 food products from Taiwan, covering 35 categories including fish and seafood, edible oils, citrus fruits and biscuits and cakes.
