It also said inflation would surpass 3% as Britain’s economy reopens, but the climb further above its 2% target would only be temporary. Last week, sterling dropped below $1.38 against a strengthening dollar after the U.S. Federal reserve surprised markets by signalling it would raise interest rates and end emergency bond-buying sooner than expected. Sterling was down 0.04% against the dollar at $1.3919 at 1350 GMT, on track for its worst month against the greenback since September 2020. Jeffrey Sacks, EMEA Head Investment Strategy at Citi Private Bank, said he favoured sterling over the euro. “Sterling continues to benefit from inflows driven by pent-up demand for all asset classes and is inexpensive in valuation terms,” he said.

The loonie was trading 0.2% higher at 1.2294 to the greenback, or 81.34 U.S. cents. It was on track to gain 1.4% for the week, after four consecutive weekly declines. Wall Street rose and the U.S. dollar fell against a basket of major currencies as underlying inflation in the United States rose at a slower-than-expected rate in May. Investors have been struggling to interpret signals from the Fed about how hot it is willing to let inflation run. The 10-year eased about half a basis point to 1.410% but held well above the 3-1/2-month low it hit last Friday at 1.364%.

TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan and the United States will hold trade talks next week, the de facto U.S. embassy in Taipei said on Friday, resuming long-stalled discussions as Washington seeks to deepen its support for the Chinese-claimed island. FILE PHOTO: Flags of Taiwan and U.S. are placed for a meeting in Taipei, Taiwan March 27, 2018. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and Taiwan’s Office of Trade Negotiations will serve as the “chief consultants” for the talks, it added. Taiwan had been cautiously optimistic about resuming the high level trade talks with Washington this year after U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken signalled a possible resumption this month. While Taiwan is a member of the World Trade Organization, many countries are wary of signing trade deals with the tech powerhouse fearing objections from China, though Taiwan does have free trade deals with Singapore and New Zealand.

TAIPEI—The U.S. will revive trade and investment talks with Taiwan next week in a move intended to draw Washington and Taipei closer that also is likely to irk Beijing. The de facto U.S. embassy in Taipei, the American Institute of Taiwan, said Friday that its director, Brent Christensen, and Taiwan’s representative in the U.S., Bi-Khim Hsiao, will convene a meeting by videoconference Wednesday with participants from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and Taiwan’s trade office. An announcement was anticipated after Secretary of State Antony Blinken said earlier this month that Washington planned to engage with Taiwan soon on trade, without sharing a timeline. The two sides will engage under a trade and investment framework first signed in 1994. Such agreements create the basis for recurring dialogue on trade issues, and sometimes serve a precursor to full-fledged free-trade agreements.

Investors had hoped a more optimistic economic assessment from the BoE would push sterling back towards $1.40.

Earlier this month, sterling dropped below $1.38 against a strengthening dollar after the U.S. Federal Reserve surprised markets by signalling it would raise interest rates and end emergency bond-buying sooner than expected. Versus the euro, the pound was 0.2% lower at 85.84 pence, but was still set for a weekly gain.

The Fine Print of Dietary Supplements
  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( Jo Craven Mcginty | ) www.wsj.com + 0.99   time to read: 1 min
Thanks in part to the Covid-19 pandemic, dietary supplements are more popular than ever. In 2020, when demand for immunity-boosting supplements surged against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, market analyst Grand View Research valued global sales at $140.3 billion. But federal law doesn’t require dietary supplements to be proven safe before they’re marketed. Supplements include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, organ tissues, glandulars, metabolites and botanicals such as herbs. They can be purchased as pills, powders or liquids—but they’re regulated as food, not drugs.

Taiwan stocks rose over 1% to their highest in more than a month, while the Taiwan dollar also strengthened to register its best session in two weeks.

Socially distanced members of Congress stand as US President Joe Biden addresses a joint session of Congress at the US Capitol in Washington, DC, on April 28, 2021. The U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee has scheduled a meeting on Wednesday to consider sweeping legislation to boost economic competitiveness and push Beijing on human rights, part of an ongoing effort in Congress to address competition with China. The Senate on June 8 passed by a strong bipartisan 68-32 majority its own sweeping China bill, the "U.S. House leaders opted not to take up and consider the Senate's legislation. House committees have instead been working on their own legislation, a process that could mean a months-long wait for any bill to be sent to the White House for Biden to sign into law.

The U.S. dollar held near multi-month highs on Friday as investors warily awaited U.S. inflation data, while the pound nursed modest losses after Bank of England (BoE) policymakers leaned away from flagging rate rises. "The dollar can jump if inflation surprises to the upside," said Joe Capurso, head of international economics at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia in Sydney. The stronger dollar has kept other majors in check through the week, even against currencies where rate rises are likely to land sooner than in the United States. With risk appetite looking resilient, any narrowing in this gap probably depends on how far the (Fed)-inspired U.S. dollar recovery can extend." In emerging markets, the Mexican peso surged to a two-week high following a surprise benchmark interest rate hike.

"If Biden really wants to break with the Trump legacy, then he has to drop the case," Moris told Reuters in an interview.

"A superpower that has a free press is very different in nature from one that does not."

Migrant rights activist Andy Hall told Reuters he had petitioned the CBP over concerns of forced labour indications in IOI's operations, as alleged by the workers. "IOI is well aware of the importance of our workers' rights and working conditions," IOI added. "I crucially continue to engage IOI directly on specific issues of concern relating to forced labour risks in its operations," Hall said. The CBP last year banned imports from FGV Holdings (FGVH.KL) and Sime Darby Plantations (SIPL.KL) over forced labour allegations, which had prompted some global buyers to drop them from supply chains. Malaysia, the world's second-largest palm oil producer and exporter, is heavily reliant on migrants from Indonesia, India and Bangladesh to produce the edible oil found in everything from food to cosmetics to biodiesel.

One of the most important crossroads on the way to small business success — and one that nearly every entrepreneur will encounter at some point — is incredibly treacherous: deciding whether to take on a partner. "A partnership could mean your business will have access to new products, reach a new market, block a competitor through an exclusive contract, or increase customer loyalty," the National Federation of Independent Business, a small business advocacy group, said in a blog post. But business partnerships can also be disastrous. In one of the most extreme examples, Chris Smith of California ended up dead after a dispute with his business partner, Edward Shin. A limited partnership or a limited liability partnership can, as the names imply, limit that liability.

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration plans to evacuate at least some of the Afghans who worked with the U.S. military and who face the threat of retribution from the Taliban before the U.S. withdrawal's official completion date of Sept. 11, senior administration officials said Thursday. Asked about the fate of Afghans who worked as interpreters or in other jobs, Biden said: "We've already begun the process" of helping the Afghan partners. The administration is identifying Afghans who worked with the U.S. government to be relocated to a third country to allow the Afghans to "safely complete" the remainder of the visa application process, she said. The senior administration official left open the possibility that evacuations might have to be expanded. Advocates have accused the Biden administration of moving far too slowly to protect the tens of thousands of Afghans whose lives are in mortal danger because of their association with the U.S. and Western organizations.
