人力資源研究及分析機構 ECA International 在2009年3月公佈最新調查結果,亞洲人最愛的海外工作據點,前兩名分別是新加坡及澳洲雪梨。   這項研究是在2008年第三季調查1800名受訪者對全球超過400個城市的看法,評分標準包括氣候、空氣品質及住房條件。    過去名聲不佳的中國城市,在這次調查中則出現改善跡象,如北京的基礎建設就因為主辦奧運而大幅提升。   ECA香港區總經理關禮廉(Lee Quane)說,「良好基礎建設及醫療設施,低犯罪率及健康風險,以及還不錯的空氣品質,讓新加坡能提供亞洲跨國工作者最佳生活條件」。相對於此,香港則受制於空氣污染。   前10名的其他都市包括:日本的神戶第3,澳洲墨爾本與日本橫濱併列第4,丹麥哥本哈根與日本東京併列第6,澳洲坎培拉第8,加拿大溫哥華與紐西蘭威靈頓併列第9。   在亞洲其他主要都市部分,香港排名第11,台北跟澳門併列第56,馬來西亞的吉隆坡第61,泰國的曼谷第63,汶萊的斯里巴加旺(Bandar Seri Begawan)第95,越南的河內第122,菲律賓的馬尼拉第138,印尼的雅加達第190。     資料來源: 法新社 AFP Online... more >>

台灣中央銀行總裁彭淮南再提出成立亞元主張。   亞洲各國政經差異懸殊,經濟體有大如中國及日本,小如緬甸,且國際強權美國態度至於關鍵,區域政治尚有不確定性,亞元整合仍是漫漫長路。彭淮南指出,亞洲經濟發展程度相近的國家,若能建立共同通貨區,像歐元一樣,使用亞元(Asian dollar),可降低交易成本,促進經濟成長,亞洲小型經濟體的貨幣可免受國際禿鷹攻擊。   十年前,1997年亞洲金融風暴尚未爆發前,「亞元」概念的前身-亞洲貨幣單位(ACU,Asia Currency Unit)由亞洲開發銀行總裁黑田東彥(曾任前日本首相小泉純一郎的經濟顧問)提出。它是一種表現一籃子貨幣加權平均值的貨幣單位概念,以東南亞國協10國及中日韓三國的國內生產毛額(GDP)、貿易規模等指標加權,制定一個「虛擬貨幣」,主要目的在協助發展區域內債市,促進亞洲各國的貨幣合作。   亞洲區域單一貨幣的形成,必須涵蓋中國及日本兩大經濟體;但如今人民幣仍不能自由兌換,日本也難以犧牲貨幣政策的自主性,將貨幣(利率及匯率)決策自主權拱手讓人,均增加「亞元」整合的困難度。   未來倡議「亞元」的聲音將會陸續發酵,尤其是全球金融海嘯後,美國經濟力轉弱,美元做為國際儲備貨幣的地位近來廣受討論,亞洲區域單一貨幣「亞元」整合議題受到關注。  雖然東亞及亞洲各國已簽立多份多邊換匯機制,但要達到如同歐元區,成立關稅同盟,進一步達到貨幣整合,形成「亞元」仍需要一段很長的時間。其中,不容忽視的議題是世界強權如何看待亞元的形成?   除了國際強權對於亞元的態度、亞洲各國經濟差異性大之外,亞洲區域政治仍有許多衝突性存在,緬甸由軍政府統治,台灣與中國關係近來雖已和緩,但雙方關係仍存在著許多不確定,這些都使亞元整合蒙上陰影。   亞元發展至今,諸多困難,充其量只是一個發展中區域貨幣的構想。亞洲經濟發展程度相近的國家,是否能像歐元一樣,建立共同通貨區,使用亞元,免受國際禿鷹攻擊,據保守估計可能還需10年、20年,甚至30年。   資料來源: 中央社即時新聞 CNA NEWS     ... more >>
