Britain may extend the blockade for a few weeks. WTO: global trade in 2020 may be worse than at any time in post-war peacetime, and in a pessimistic manner, global merchandise trade could fall by as much as 32% this year. Treasury Secretary Robert Mnuchin said the Fed will launch a loan program for medium-sized companies this week. Democrats want the next stimulus bill to be at least $500 billion, including a $250 billion small-business bailout package. Hong Kong announces an "unprecedented" HK $137.5 billion epidemic relief programme, including a HK $80 billion employment security scheme, which will subsidize 50 per cent of the wages of affected employees for a period of six months. HKMA: the 50 per cent reduction in reserve requirements came into effect on 8 April; China passenger Federation: retail sales in the passenger car market picked up steadily in March, with average daily retail sales shrinking to 24% in the fourth week of the month from a year earlier.
