1:19 pm
business we've had an increase over the last three months on average and and your comparison by fifteen percent and china plays a major role thus the and the genius trends which are in the economy can rely on is not as strong as the numbers might implicate and that not to act there are plenty of reasons i don't have the view of the i.m.f. the exactly that probably also has to do with the fact that and that's what a lot of analysts say that he hasn't tackled structural reforms why is it a difficult to do that. i think it's difficult in japan because it's a very traditional country and if you look at the government polity it is very much entrenched in the holes complexity of the system and then. getting structural reforms on its way is very very difficult so at the moment they still like the way that the b.o.j. eases the way out that we run big budget deficits in order to keep the economy on track but this is not a recipe to last and what about sovereign debt i mean why is it important to tackle
1:20 pm
that. he has to tackle it because a stands shy of the number of two hundred fifty percent of g.d.p. and going forward with the demography of japan you need to do something about that and nothing can be really seen here on the horizon of the foreseeable future so we look into the stability of the economy that's what markets do like but we have a lack of structural measures in order to win the future over a longer period of time and just briefly four more years of the in power makes what's that mean for the global economy it means that in the first dance on the short view of the next twenty four months two years that means stability that's what markets like but it doesn't mean that japan is out of the woods of the problems going forward into a longer term future. of analyst agreement on this bank thank you so much for this . well the ailing japanese electronics micah toshiba is expecting to post

1:23 pm
a posted worker is an employee year who is sent by his employer to carry out a service in another e.u. member state on a temporary basis but the directive has come under fire critics say it promotes wage dumping. equal pay for the same work in the same country the room pertains to all employees in the european union being sent from one country to another for example if a construction worker from warsaw is sent by his polish company to germany he has the right to earn at least german minimum wage in the future he'll receive the same money as his german colleagues including the usual benefits that's according to a european commission legal initiative the previous so-called postered workers act was from the year nine hundred ninety six when the e.u. only had fifteen member states there was a pay gap of one to three the law was meant to bring payment parity then eastern european countries became member states know the e.u.
1:24 pm
is much larger the pay gap to its now at one to ten that means workers in luxemburg earn ten times more than those in bulgaria no wonder the posting of workers is increasing in twenty ten it was already one point three million people twenty fourteen already one point nine million an increase of almost forty five percent germany france and belgium other countries which have the most foreign workers from other e.u. countries most of them come from eastern europe most workers that came to germany in twenty fourteen were from poland at thirty six point five percent slovenia at twelve point one percent and hungary at eight point nine percent one in three works in construction one in five in industry and one in ten in the health care or senior care branch their working conditions should now improve. all right well european union directives tend to be somewhat complex the post of directives is no exception so let's bring in our what experts to set some light on today's meeting.
1:25 pm
what exactly are the social a fan minister in luxembourg discussing today. they're looking today into a proposal by the european commission to reform the posted worker a directive and that goes back to an initiative taken by the french president in particular but supported by many particularly western european countries the rich nations inside europe if you want who wants to eliminate unfair competition now the reason for that is we've seen in the report the example of. a builder but you can also take a carpenter let's say from bulgaria who is only needs to be paid the minimum wage if for instance he works here in belgium now the in addition to that he only has to pay the taxes back in his home country in bulgaria and also the social charges and that gives him a comparative competitive advantage that local companies contextually compete with
1:26 pm
so the idea of the ministers is now to restrict that post that worker status to to potentially even just one year and the big concern that eastern european countries in the e.u. have was that is that this would actually take away that competitive advantage the reason why in the first place is the european workforce is employed here overall it's a sensitive it's a political issue because after all if you look at the numbers only one percent of of europe's workforce is actually under the status of a post that werman so i mean get to me this sounds like the social affairs minister i have this impossible task that they have to please everybody which from what you just told us is going to be difficult so what kind of result can be expected from that meeting. on the last summit leaders indicated that a compromise may be within reach and so after eighteen months of struggling over
1:27 pm
this issue it may actually be that a compromise could be put on the table will that be the first step on what i call in visits that his big reform of the european union remains to be seen in any case any compromise that could be reached today will stand still take a little more while to become really concrete because it will have to first pass the european council so the heads of state and government will have to sign off and then also the european commission will have to give green lights and finally it also has to be signed off by the european parliament so still some way to go sounds like the reform of the posted workers' directive that story will be here with us for a wee bit longer matus from brussels there our expert thank you so much for this. that's the business for now thanks for keeping me company i'll be back in the next hour with more news stay tuned.
