it will be mandatory for people to be fully vaccinated to be able to go anywhere in this country. the officials have said that people who are not vaccinated they will be facing fines of up to 3600 euros. and there will be a registry database that's a government that can check to see whether or not people are on it. there of course has been criticism in all of this freedom party. the far right party has been holding rallies and demonstrations during the lockdown on weekends. crowds of nearly $40000.00 have come out to protest, but they say is a frenchman on their civil liberties. there are also very specific rules here. and also when you want to go anywhere, even the source, a threshold math are required, not any kind of mastic is accepted. and there's also a very strict test and trace policy. you have to be tested every 48 hours to enter any store. you have to show a negative p c r test that is no older than 48 hours. so there is a continuous search of people being tested across the country. all of this is in
5:10 am
the hopes that the country will be able to write out the next wave that is coming with the on the kron variance of the corona virus. the new year brings with it's the world's largest free trade agreement, which has come into falls in the asia pacific region that is called the regional comprehensive economic partnership asa was signed in 2020 and set to ease trade barriers between 15 nations. now that china, japan, south korea, australia and new zealand, and 10 members of the association of south east asian nations known as axiom, the deal aims to slash 90 percent of towers between those countries. trade in the region stood at 2.3 trillion in 2019 the u. n. says us up could boost that figure by 42000000000 now that makes it larger than any other trading book, including the united states, mexico, canada deal, and the european union. anti bulk is
5:11 am
a senior research fellow at the center for china and globalization just in our line from beijing. by scott, good talk with mr. mark on the program again. how will this trade agreement effect those that are already in existence? we've just mentioned the e u single block market and the u. s. c. a well, thanks for having you still and happy new year to you and everyone. today. this is truly a historic trade agreement that is coming into effect and will have enormous ramifications for not just the people that are covered by it, but people around the world. one reason for this is, as you just mentioned, is that this is the largest marginalise. so the u. s. m. c a u. s. mexico canada trade area. ready is, was the largest are set, there's a little bit bigger, but here's the really important point. u. s. m. c, a covers less than 10 percent of the world's population are so covers about one 3rd
5:12 am
. and many of these are still looking to achieve a more modern lifestyle that we might see in places like new york, like the g, like london, etc. so this is gonna create tremendous new opportunities for consumers to have greater choice, less expensive goods. it's also going to be an enormous economic driver for businesses in the area as well. because this agreement is not just big. but it also covers the key aspects of a self contained economic region. and that there are countries by korea and japan or industrial power houses as well as countries that are producing more agricultural ra inputs as well. so they think this will be transformational and it won't be exclusionary as well. well, it seems very rosy and very positive. when we look at an example like european union, it has taken a long time for those, but 2627 block country countries in europe to us. they work together to gain their
5:13 am
trading block, moving smoothly. this particular trading block involves assay and, and the likes, as you say, of china and australia. and we've seen in recent months at china and australia have brought relationship over trade and they fallen out. it's been acrimonious. so i wonder how this news agreement is going to work in principal. i will let previous arguments have any impact on what's going on right now with our set that's a very good way. so 1st of all, we have to recognize that this isn't going to happen overnight. ready i think it will take schedule, take a total, 20 years for it to be fully implemented. and of course, i think there are regional differences. geo politics, i think will intrude. but the big difference, i think, between the e you, is that in the you, the largest economy in germany, in our set, the large, the economy is trainer. and i think china because of its economic size,
5:14 am
as well as its approach to multilateralism. ready i think will ensure that our step will be rolled out with fewer obstacles. then as you mentioned, the groups and unions that being said, of course, greater free trade creates winners and losers as well. so i think we also have to keep an eye on the businesses and the sectors of society that might be disadvantaged. i think this really has to happen more of the country level rather than at this super national level of which our stuff is mostly what happens at me over the next 20 as pants and the markets good to speak to you from beijing and a happy new year to you and your family. thanks for joining challenges ever. thank you to still have him on out there and sacrificing one to save the rest how some time lisa falls to sell a daughter just to be able to eat. ah
