qualified workers in i.t. there's a lot of demand and so i wasn't really afraid to meet. you and have a better man than the hygiene measures include social distancing and that's impossible with tango it's a couples dance and the partners get very close to one another and we constantly change our dance partners and we knew from the outset that we would be the last to be able to return to normal i mean c.b.s. was a sad loss leaving us and but i say to you today they can relate i accepted an offer 2 weeks ago in software engineering. for engineering but i've still never met michael ware. it's very impersonal yes i don't know anyone in purcell nick mckenzie or needs to go if i need help i don't know who i could ask and easy to get things we just sit in on my meetings and a lot of people don't even have their webcams on. or i manage independent itself
a tricky dance let's bring in colorado and now in frankfurt good morning conrad what has this pandemic mitzi young workers just entering the job market. well stephen it all depends on the level of education you have of course and on the sector that you want to work in right now in germany you know of course hotels restaurants are not hiring theaters are closed our television station d.w. is not taking in turns because of the pandemic so obviously the pandemic has made it more difficult to enter the workforce full of those young workers but on the other hand i personally have a couple of kids kids there in that twenty's in my family who just finished their degrees and who managed quite well to find a job of course sometimes they have to accept not the very best 1st work contract some of them of course immediately started to work from home but you know this is the generation that's used to open a laptop into the virtual become active there it turns out it's also possible to
find work there the learning curve of course is very steep for them or a very different work world that they're entering contribution in frankfurt thank you. now let's go to some of the other business stories making headlines. it has said that in 20 years the world's car fleet will be fully electric he predicted the milestone will double global electricity consumption driving up demand for a new level energy tesla founder made the comments while picking up a business award in germany where construction of his 4th gigafactory is underway. so australia has emerged from its 1st recession in 3 decades after its economy grew by 3.3 percent in the 3rd quarter officials said the country had turned a corner but was likely to experience years of high unemployment. nasdaq is seeking government approval to force companies listed on the exchange to meet boardroom diversity standards it argues that many firms are making sluggish procter
progress in naming nonwhite executives to leading positions. over asia now or taiwan central bank said wednesday that it's holding off for now on an interest rate increase you heard that right when most nations are pouring money into the economy taiwan is considering tightening its money supply that's how good things have been this year for the island economy. there are new curfews new law and no bans and yet taiwan seems to have the pandemic under control only 7 people have died from the virus so far there would be no local infection since april. the country was prepared for a crisis had enough masks from the start and lead targeted testing in contact tracing with cell phones that's why taiwan is one of the few countries where the international monetary fund does not expect economic to decline. the taiwanese to test it expects growth of 2.5 percent in 2020 rising to 3.9
percent in 2021 although given taiwan is dependent on exports overseas markets need to recover fast. speaking of the situation right now the most important aspect is that the pandemic is still gaining ground in europe and america some cities are locked down in europe and their economic growth has slowed but this is not likely to recede in america as long as cities are not locked down will be blessed with the shopping peak season of q 4 in this case taiwan's year and exports can still reach a high so if you look at taiwan's economy it's still on a path to recovery. more than 40 percent of taiwanese exports head to china but tensions with beijing have been mounting of late china does not recognize taiwan's government and for decades has threatened to take over the small self ruled island by force if necessary. let's bring in in
taipei so good morning or i should say good evening there so how important is china's quick recovery to this relatively strong economy that we're seeing in taiwan. or china is the only major economy to recover from the pandemic and taiwan has become more dependent on the chinese market because of this exports account for about 60 percent of taiwan's g.d.p. and for the past few months more than 46 percent of taiwanese exports go to china while it's only 14 percent of the u.s. and 7 percent of the whole europe and from january to october this year and has enjoyed a trade surplus of 131000000000 dollars was china so from these numbers we know taiwan has greatly benefited from china's quick recovery clearly a very significant business relationship there what does that mean we're seeing growing tensions between china and taiwan at the moment well
taiwanese and chinese economies are highly interdependent 3 of the 12 china's most popular consumer brands are taiwan's brands and apples 3 major manufacturers in china foxconn pick a try and was trying to companies and china is still seeking for more tao anees investments because for beijing there's a very particular reason when it's a political and cultural itself cannot be a step to get by that's how many people it's really important to mention this is a common ties for taiwan to make it more difficult for talent to get rid of china. joe what does the country expect out of a biden presidency considering the turmoil and i guess maybe the the tensions that have increased between the u.s. and china during the trumpet ministration. well biden has appointed and lincoln to be the secretary of the state and then blinken has tweeted saying that stronger economy ties with taiwan support our shared democratic values and our
common commitment to regional peace and stability is really a positive to the taiwanese government and it's looking forward for a stronger us in taiwan nomic partnership and even probably bilateral trade agreements at biden's presidency. all right and finally so how are corona virus levels looking there right now we talk about low infection rates is that holding at the moment for thai waters or any concern in the months ahead. well it's governance become more cautious now we have more measures of wearing masks during the winter season but for our daily life there's like no pandemic going on here in taiwan so it's pretty safe here in telling us how everybody feels so bring us the latest from taipei thank you very much. and finally breaks that you're a negotiation is are coming down to the wire that's leading to some interesting
scenes like this one. this is the brags that monster created by the dutch and sent to the port of rotterdam where he can remind truck drivers and of course the press of the customs nightmare that their fate that they're about to face now 3000 trucks pass through europe's largest port daily local authorities fear that many firms are ready for the paperwork that could be headed their way should a deal not be reached but it's 31st. all right that's it for me and the business team here for lead as always you can find out more about these and other business stories online at g.w. dot com slash business to check us out on facebook and twitter i'm stephen beardsley thanks for watching. i'm really reluctant with him on those questions.
