Business & Market Discussions / View on China / View on South Korea / Healthcare China - Money Talk 00:57:00 2017-07-18

GDP on the mainland has beaten expectations and expanded by 6.9% in the second quarter boosted by exports and consumer spending. Retail sales and industrial production picked up markedly in June and investment in property also accelerated despite the authorities’ efforts to curb runaway prices. However, despite the upbeat economic data, mainland shares have seen some sharp falls led by small cap stocks.
Chinese regulators have blocked the country’s banks from lending to Dalian Wanda blocking its financing of both past and future deals. The banks have been instructed to cut off funding or restructuring on six overseas purchases by the Wanda Group.
Joining today’s Money Talk to review those headlines are Gavin Parry of Parry International Trading and Hao Hong of BOCOM International. Peter Kim, Investment Strategist at Mirae Asset Daewoo in Seoul gives us his thoughts on the potential for South Korean stocks, which have been making a series of record highs recently.
After 8:30, we look at advances in the mainland healthcare sector with Serena Shao, Head of China Healthcare Research at CLSA. Finally, we discuss the increasing spending power of emerging market consumers with Frank Lavin, Chairman & CEO of Export Now.
