Hong Kong’s pro-Beijing DAB Party is calling on the government to hand out HK$10,000 to every Hong Kong permanent resident immediately and not wait for the budget in two weeks' time. They said the money can be used to help people buy protective masks or daily necessities and assist those who have lost their jobs due to the economic slump. The world's largest mobile phone showcase, the Mobile World Congress due to be held in Barcelona in two weeks’ time, has been cancelled over coronavirus concerns. More than 100,000 people usually attend the annual event but high-profile exhibitors including Facebook, Amazon, Nokia, Sony and Vodafone had already pulled out of the event. Oil giant BP has announced a 10-point plan to become a net zero carbon emissions company by 2050 or earlier and help the world get to net zero. CEO Bernard Looney said, “the world’s carbon budget is finite and running out fast; we need a rapid transition to net zero." On today’s Money Talk our guests are Enzio von Pfeil of St. James’s Place and Louisa Fok from Bank of Singapore. With the view from South Korea is Peter Kim at KB Securities.
