Some of the industrial names are weak today on healthcare moving lower today on the positive side renaissance. This is a chip maker based in Japan. Participated in some of the strength that we have seen in chipmakers. Generally.

Renaissance also forecast profit above expectations. This company supplies ah lot of semiconductors to Japan's electric vehicles supply chain. And earlier in the week, Toyota was saying that it's going to begin selling to battery powered vehicles in the U. S. So that is just underpinning the gains that we're seeing right now.

Let's get back to our guests. One Chin, who's chief Asia Pacific economist at Vanguard, So Miss Wong Doug was saying just before the break there that we talked a little bit about transition from the export led economy to consumption. The guest that we had on earlier Derek scissors of China based book. Addition to some comments about the vaccine, also said that the problem is in the PBOC stimulates the funding basically goes to companies and not to consumers, and this goes back a long Way in China that consumers don't have the same sort of protections and transfer payments that we see in the West. But to the extent that that is the case, I mean, does he have a point that the PBOC would would be better off in trying to funnel money right to consumers? Yeah. I think this is the typical way. China stimulate the economy, right? They came and the corporate sector. They try to revive the infrastructure spending. Um s Oh, this is very typical. What China has been doing in the past downturns. I think the good news is actually China effectively contained the pandemic this time, right? So what you were saying is because of the strong rebounding factory activities construction activities. It actually brought a you know, bring brought all the workers back. Right? So you know we are seeing actually at the labor market is improving on the informant rate is declining. So gradually wait around to see you know, you know better job and income growth from the row and that will feed into the consumption. Um, you know what consumers down the road. I think the weak link is still on the service sector. I think that's something we're still watching closely. Well, that's a great point. And it sets us up for the next question. Another point that Derek Scissors and made from the China beige book is that Chinese vaccines against covert 19 or far.
