Business and Market Discussion / View from Japan

The People’s Bank of China has cut interest rates by 10 basis points on Rmb200bn (US$28.6bn) of loans offered via its medium-term lending facility.

Apple has warned that it won’t meet its quarterly revenue forecast because of constrained supply around the world of its iPhones and lower Chinese demand as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

Japan's economy suffered its worst quarterly contraction in more than five years at the end of 2019. The nation's annualised GDP in the fourth quarter fell by a much steeper than expected 6.3%, the second worst GDP print since the financial crisis.

Singapore and Thailand have both downgraded their forecasts for 2020 economic growth. Singapore’s Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat is expected to announce the largest budget deficit in two decades in his annual budget today.


On today's Money Talk, we’re joined by Quentin Webb from the Wall Street Journal and James McCormack at Fitch Ratings. With the view from Japan is Nick Smith of CLSA.
