🔴Friday May 28th 2021 🔵2021年5月28日星期五 🔱Espresso - Today’s agenda 每日濃縮 - 今日頭條 🌈💰📈Cashing in its chips: Taiwan’s economy 台灣的經濟:兌現籌碼 Taiwan is home to just 0.3% of the world’s population, but over half of global semiconductor manufacture. That’s an enviable position given the chip shortage. Businesses from gadget-makers to auto-manufacturers the world over rely on Taiwan’s silicon wafers to power their electronics. That has helped drive its economy to new heights. A world-beating pandemic response and government incentives prompted manufacturers and expatriates to flood home. Taiwan’s economy grew by 3.1% last year, outpacing China’s for the first time since 1990. It clocked an astonishing 8.2% year-on-year growth in the first quarter of 2021. But after 253 days without a single local covid-19 case, the mostly unvaccinated country has reported thousands in the past two weeks. Restrictions imposed earlier this month were mostly due to end today, but will continue into June as hospital capacity in Taipei, the capital, grows thin. The government hopes that, like last year, it can cushion the economic blow with targeted stimulus. 僅佔全球總人口 0.3%的台灣卻組裝/生產/製造了全球超過一半的半導體。這樣的地位在目前晶片短缺的情況中,著實讓人羨慕與嫉妒。全球小至零件製造,大至自動化組裝的企業全都依賴著台灣的矽晶片來驅動他/她們的電子產品,而這也順勢推動了台灣經濟創下歷史新高。傲視全球的抗疫作為與政府的獎勵措施吸引了製造業者與僑胞/外派人士回流。台灣去年的經濟成長首次在 1990年後超越中國,達 3.1%;而 2021年首季的年度成長更達到驚人的 8.2%。不過經歷了 253天的零本土確診案例後,這個大部分民眾都還尚未接種疫苗的國家卻在過去的兩週確診了數千個病例。在本月稍早實施、原本大部分預訂在今天終止的限制措施,隨著其首都台北的醫療量能日漸吃緊,將延長到六月。台灣政府希望能像去年一樣,利用目標性的刺激/振興 (措施) 來減緩 (疫情) 對經濟的衝擊。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Population (n.): 人口 (名) ✅Enviable (adj.): 令人羨慕的 (形) ✅Rely on (v.): 依賴、依靠 (動) ✅Electronics (n.): 電子產品 (名) ✅Incentives (n.): 獎勵措施 (名) ✅Expatriate (n.): 外派人士 (名) ✅Astonishing (adj.): 驚人的、精彩的 (形) ✅Cushion (v./n.): 緩衝 (動)、坐墊/填充物 (名) ✅Stimulus (n.): 振興/刺激措施 (名) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專: ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號: ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道: ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台: — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤
