    Business and Market Discussion / View from mainland China

    Hong Kong Financial Secretary, Paul Chan, said yesterday he's confident that the new round of consumption vouchers will stimulate the local economy in the short term. Writing on his official blog, Mr. Chan said the fresh round of vouchers disbursed since Saturday has boosted consumer sentiment, injecting about HK$15 billion of consumption power into the local market. But he expressed concern about the challenges facing the economy, such as the local epidemic and geopolitical tensions, noting the decline in the city's retail sales in August.

    China's factory activity unexpectedly expanded in September, helped by a series of recent easing measures, but gains were marginal as the economy continued to grapple with strict Covid curbs, a deepening property crisis and softening exports growth. The National Bureau of Statistics reported on Friday that the official manufacturing purchasing managers' index rose to 50.1 in September from 49.4 in August. But, the Caixin Manufacturing PMI, which measures the performance of 430 private industrial companies, unexpectedly fell. The Caixin China General Manufacturing PMI dropped to 48.1 in September 2022 from 49.5 in the previous month. This was the lowest reading since May.

    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.
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Andrew Freris, CEO of Ecognosis Advisory and John Schofield, Managing Director, Tempus Investment. With a view from India is Toby Lawson, CEO of Societe Generale India.
