COVID-19 vs Hong Kong, Indonesia and Singapore

As Hong Kong enters into a technical recession, we speak to Carlos about policy measures that Hong Kong could look at, especially considering Covid-19 could get worse and the reasons behind Hong Kong's hesitance on using fiscal measures despite having a huge surplus.

We also get into Indonesia's 5th rate cut in 7 months and the effectiveness of Singapore’s expansionary budget.


Presented by: Lyn Mak, Wong Shou Ning, Roshan Kanesan
