90% of German businesses in Taiwan pleased with anti-coronavirus efforts
Nearly 90-percent of German businesses in Taiwan say they are pleased with the island's anti-coronavirus efforts.
A survey done by the German Trade Office in Taipei earlier this month shows that 60-percent of surveyed businesses expect their revenues to shrink during
the first half of the year.
They say the impact of the coronavirus outbreak includes a dramatic drop of demand for their products and services, cancellation of trade shows and activities, as well as limits brought by home isolation measures.
But none of the businesses say they plan to lay off workers.
On the issue of combating coronavirus, they suggest increasing supplies like masks and protective garments and putting in economic stimulus plans such as tax cuts.
