This week: HK banking easing up, Trump + Hong Kong, Thailand corp, and some beautiful HK sights

We all seemed to survive this red alert Typhoon that passed through on Tuesday – didn’t seem to amount to much but the Chinese news tried to make it look like a bigger mess than it was (attempt to saving face?).

Maybe Hong Kong banking will get “back to normal again” – it’s been months and months of pain for lots of us in the industry. But the following news isn’t showing anything concrete, but at least some signs of hope.
