Hong Kong’s Fading Autonomy; Moderna in Vaccine Spotlight; Sony Hopes for PS5 Cash Cow: World Brief

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Hong Kong’s Fading Autonomy; Moderna in Vaccine Spotlight; Sony Hopes for PS5 Cash Cow: World Brief” – below is their description.

WORLD NEWS: Hong Kong’s autonomy is fading. While hugely significant politically and for society, it’s becoming irrelevant for investors. The same day that pan-democratic legislators announced they would quit en masse in protest against new rules allowing disloyal lawmakers to be disqualified, the MSCI Hong Kong Index jumped to an almost nine-month high and the city’s currency was little moved. https://bloom.bg/32zQACE It’s Moderna Inc.’s time to be in the spotlight. The same U.S. explosion of Covid-19 cases that helped Pfizer Inc. get results for its vaccine trial earlier this week is helping speed along Moderna’s trial. Moderna said Wednesday its study has accumulated more than 53 infections, allowing a preliminary analysis of the shot’s effectiveness to begin. https://bloom.bg/32Aeduw Sony PlayStation 5 video game console went on sale Thursday, a key test of the Japanese company’s ability to sustain its biggest growth engine during a coronavirus-era gaming boom. https://bloom.bg/3eTvGTQ More on these big stories in business at Bloomberg.com.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
