REUTERS/Pichi ChuangTAIPEI, Nov 25 (Reuters) - Taiwan is looking at cooperating with three Eastern European countries on semiconductors, a minister said on Thursday, a move likely to find favour in Brussels which has been courting Taiwanese semiconductor firms to manufacture in the bloc. Taiwan will set up working groups with the three countries to work out how to cooperate on chips, while Taiwan will also give scholarships for technical training, he added. The European Commission has proposed legislation to boost chip production, and has angled for Taiwan's involvement.

Oil falls on expected deal to tap emergency crude reserves
  + stars: | 2021-11-23 | by ( )   time to read: +2 min
Oil prices dropped on Tuesday, reversing gains in the previous session, on growing talk the United States, Japan and India will release crude reserves to tame prices despite the threat of demand faltering as Covid-19 cases flare up in Europe. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures fell 43 cents, or 0.6%, to $76.32 a barrel at 0128 GMT. Brent crude futures fell 30 cents, or 0.4%, to $79.40 a barrel. "As Europe, and in particular Eastern Europe, struggles to halt the spread of Covid-19, the risk of lockdown-like measures looms large," said Rystad Energy analyst Louise Dickson. "If a new wave of lockdowns are enacted in Europe, oil prices will not be spared during the remainder of the flu season in the North Hemisphere," Dickson said in emailed comments.

A long-running row with Brussels about Warsaw overriding parts of EU law could be costly too if it isn't resolved. "If balance of payments deterioration proves more permanent, we expect higher FX volatility in the region," JPMorgan said. Inflation for big three CEE economies - Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary - currently averages around 6.5%. If it ends up settling between 3-5%, 10-year bond yields in the region would hit 3.9%-5.2% - far higher than in recent years. Lyubka Dushanova, an emerging market specialist at State Street Global Advisors, reckons that CEE central banks being behind the curve and losing inflation-fighting credibility causes market weakness.

Listen and follow The DailyApple Podcasts | Spotify | StitcherFor three decades, President Aleksandr Lukashenko of Belarus, a former Soviet nation in Eastern Europe, ruled with an iron fist. In 2020, Mr. Lukashenko declared victory in a highly disputed election and violently put down the resulting protests. In response, the European Union enacted sanctions and refused to recognize him as a legitimate president. More sanctions came when, this year, he forced a European commercial jet to land in Belarus in order to arrest a dissident. So, in the hopes of bringing the European Union to the negotiating table, Mr. Lukashenko has engineered a migrant crisis on the Poland-Belarus border.

German digital bank N26 is shutting down its U.S. operations, less than two-and-a-half years after it launched in the country. The Berlin-based fintech, which was valued at $9 billion in a recent funding round, said it wanted to shift focus to its core European business. It's not the first time N26 has pulled its services from a major English-speaking market. German regulators fined the bank $5 million in June for failing to submit suspicious activity reports on money laundering on time. N26 has raised a total of $1.7 billion in funding to date.

The Russian president said the West wasn't respecting Moscow's "red lines." Back in September, the Kremlin warned that NATO expanding military infrastructure in Ukraine would cross "red lines" for the Russian president. The Russian president has repeatedly complained about US and NATO military activities in the Black Sea and Eastern Europe. Similarly, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Monday said, ''In recent weeks, we have seen large and unusual concentrations of Russian forces close to Ukraine's borders." Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky recently said there were 100,000 Russian troops near Ukraine's borders.

The new £1 pound coin is seen alongside U.S. dollar bills and euro notes on April 4, 2017, in Bath, England. Australia's dollar weakened after wage data failed to strengthen the case for tighter monetary policy. The dollar index — which measures the currency against six rivals including the yen — traded at 95.871, not far from the overnight high of 95.978, a level not seen since July of last year. U.S. retail sales rose more than expected in October, a report showed Tuesday, building on momentum from last week when data showed consumer prices surging at the highest rate since 1990. Money markets are currently pricing in a high probability of a Fed rate increase in June, followed by another in November.

* Euro at 16-month low vs dollar* Graphic: World FX rates (Changes dateline to New York from London; updates prices after U.S. retail sales data; adds analyst comments)NEW YORK, Nov 16 (Reuters) - The dollar rose to a 16-month high on Tuesday after data showed U.S. consumers looked past rising prices and drove retail sales higher than expected last month, while the euro slumped amid growth concerns and a surge in COVID-19 cases. U.S. retail sales rose 1.7% in October, topping consensus expectations of a 1.4% rise, likely as Americans started their holiday shopping early to avoid empty shelves amid shortages of some goods as the ongoing pandemic squeezes supply chains. “The data reveals that consumers have continued spending and spending well despite rising prices and deteriorating consumer morale,” said Fiona Cincotta, senior financial markets analyst at City Index. At 9:30 a.m. Eastern time, the dollar index was up 0.218% at 95.738, having earlier touched 95.824, its highest since July 2020. The British pound was up 0.13% against the dollar at $1.3420, spurred by data that showed British employers hired more people in October after the government’s job-protecting furlough scheme ended.

France, the Netherlands and many countries in Eastern Europe are also experiencing a surge in infections. Britain is to extend its COVID-19 booster vaccine rollout to people between 40 and 49, officials said on Monday, to boost waning immunity ahead of the colder winter months.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain, which has suffered a rash of new cases in recent weeks, kept his resistance to mask mandates and health passes. Romania, which has Europe’s second-lowest vaccination rate recently reported the world’s highest per capita death rate from Covid-19. Russia and Ukraine, which each have vaccination rates below 50 percent, also introduced widespread restrictions. The government has suggested that those tests could be required to enter events and certain venues, even for the vaccinated. Some German states are introducing stricter mask mandates and requiring vaccination instead of negative tests for entry into venues.

As Europe finds itself at the epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic once again, experts say it should serve as a “warning” to the U.S. and other countries about the virus’ “unremitting” nature. 'Truly disastrous'However, the same cannot be said for countries in Eastern Europe, where he said the situation was "truly disastrous." Sean Gallup / Getty ImagesCalling this "worrying," Wenseleers said he believed low vaccine uptake and high vaccine hesitancy were largely to blame. The vaccine tracker also showed that other Eastern European countries have low vaccination rates compared to their Western neighbors. Eric Feigl-Ding, an epidemiologist and senior fellow at the Federation of American Scientists, said the high death rates should be “a warning” for other nations with low vaccination rates.

Images of migrants huddled near razor wire on the Belarus-Poland border on Wednesday shed light on the escalating humanitarian and political crisis in Eastern Europe. According to Polish officials, some in the crowd have tried to force their way across the border as the standoff has intensified this week. NBC News could not independently verify the video, and has reached out to the Belarusian defense ministry for comment. A photo shared by Reuters shows Youssef Atallah, a migrant from Syria, displaying apparent facial injuries after he said he was beaten by Belarusian border guards. The Polish defense ministry told NBC News in an email these were a "provocation" and part of a "disinformation campaign" to discredit Polish forces.

Covid-19 cases are once again surging in Europe, and data shows that the countries recording the biggest rebounds are lagging in vaccinations. More than half of European countries with the biggest outbreaks rank in the bottom half when it comes to vaccination rates on the continent. The outbreaks in Europe are currently among the most severe in the world; six of the 10 countries with the biggest case increases are on the continent. Covid-related deaths across Europe have also spiked, with Hungary, the Czech Republic and Latvia accounting for the biggest increases in fatalities over the past two weeks. Several Eastern European countries are facing slow vaccine rollouts.
