Section break ---- C*News Intro I'm ... w/ the top of the hour news ..... ---- E*Tai-Ex opening The Tai-Ex opened up 34-points this morning from Friday's close, at 9,870 on turnover of 1.7-billion N-T. The market closed above the 9,800-point mark last Friday, as gains in the optoelectronic (光電), cement and oil, gas and electricity sectors propelled shares higher. However, traders expect investors to stay on the sell side during the remaining trading sessions ahead of the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday, which is expected to push up trading volume (成交量) on the local bourse. ---- E*Taiwan to Bid for CPTPP as Members Look to Expand Agreement The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says the government will continue to seek support from members of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership and meet its standards to join the trade bloc. The statement comes after member states agreed to expand the trade agreement's membership during its first commission meeting in Tokyo this past weekend. Foreign ministry spokesman Andrew Lee says Taiwan's economic and trade system is on par with (同樣水準) international standards, is in compliance with (遵守) the trade bloc's requirements and member countries are aware of Taiwan's wishes to seek participation. ---- E*Strong Cold Air Mass to Push Mercury Down to 10-Degrees The Central Weather Bureau says a strong cold air mass will affect Taiwan until Wednesday and temperatures are expected to drop to lows of 10 degrees. The cold front arrived overnight in the north and forecasters say it will gradually move south. Temperatures are expected to fall to 16-degrees in the north and to between 18 and 21 degrees in the south over the coming couple of days. While the mercury will drop to 10-degrees in areas north of Tainan on Wednesday morning. ---- E*Filipino Muslims vote on autonomy deal for southern region Muslims in the southern Philippines are voting in a referendum on a new autonomous region that seeks to end nearly half a century of unrest. The vote on Monday caps a tumultuous (騷亂的) peace effort by the government in Manila and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, the main rebel group. The vote is to seal a deal that was signed in 2014 but was not approved in the Philippine Congress until last year. Bloodshed including the 2017 siege (佔領) of Marawi city by Islamic State-linked militants and other bombings and attacks in the south threatened to derail (使其出軌) it. ---- E*Mexico Pipeline Explosion Kills 85 Mexican authorities says the death toll from the ghastly (恐怖的) pipeline explosion in central Mexico has risen to 85. Fifty-eight others are hospitalized, and dozens more are listed as missing. The state and federal governments say they are covering medical and funeral costs. The victims were consumed by flames Friday night as they attempted to cart off (用推車運走) gasoline spurting out of a punctured pipeline that belongs to the state-run oil company Petroleos Mexicanos. More than 600 people were in the field when the gusher (噴出來的油) from the damaged pipeline turned into a fireball. ---- E*Zimbabwe Protests Crackdown Excessive: UN The government of Zimbabwe says their response to recent protests in which a number of people have reportedly died is just "a foretaste ( 先嚐嚐) of things to come". The news of a violent crackdown (鎮壓) has emerged despite the government blocking social media sites. Local rights groups say at least 12 people have been killed and many more injured by security forces. The UN has called on the government to stop the "excessive use of force" by security forces. The protests kicked off Monday when there was a sharp rise in the price of fuel. President Emmerson Mnangagwa cut short his his current overseas trip to return home "in light of the economic situation". ---- E*Workers increasingly trust their employers: survey With trust in governments taking a hit since the global financial crisis, people around the world view their employer as the most trusted institution (機構) in their lives. This is according to a survey published by public relations firm Edelman. The annual survey found that 75 percent of respondents trusted their employer - 19 points more than the equivalent (相等的) trust in business as a whole and 27 points more than governments. Waning (日漸減少的) trust in public institutions in recent years has accompanied (伴隨著) a rise in populist and nationalist politics, from the election of US President Donald Trump to Britain's vote to leave the European Union. Edelman thinks businesses have to play a central role in restoring trust in institutions. Edelman also urged firms to empower (賦予力量) employees and for CEOs to speak up on social issues such as immigration and diversity. ---- C*WEATHER AM ..... Looking at the weather across Taiwan ...
