Locked Down in Switzerland and Belgium

"Start with Stephen mcfeely he operates being be on Ireland's dingle peninsula in just before the pandemic head Stephen an interest in the hotel Oberland in October and Switzerland that's where he's had to ride out the first few months of the global lockdown good and. My goodness. My Irish friend is learning Spitzer dykes. Good here in the Alps where I've been for four months. Now in splendid isolation, my plan originally was just to come for February and March, but I've I'm still here right well, what does the vibe in Switzerland right now there's a positive vibe. The society is reopening. Tourism travel has started again just no we're on the same level as it was before we had two weekends where there was crazy crowds here huge big crowds from all over Switzerland everybody who was here was from Switzerland or had to be from Switzerland. They weren't necessarily all Swiss because there's lots of international people living in Geneva and Derek and whatnot but everybody from within the barger of Switzerland over with crowds, and then it just died and Monday to. Friday went back to being really really quiet. Okay. Well, this is sort of the very beginnings of the rekindling of tourism I would imagine it'll be people traveling with within their own countries first, and then traveling within Europe, and then finally international travel and transatlantic travel. Yes. That's exactly what we're seeing. The borders here have just reopened. So we're expecting Germans and some Austrians and maybe some French to come now also, I don't anticipate huge numbers like that would have been heretofore. One. Very noticeable thing in the Valley of course, there's no American visitors. As you know, the valley also is very popular with. Chinese travelers Indians many people from Dubai and Saudi Arabia would come here and they're not here this year. So there's a noticeable difference there. So the people getting the real cultural change would be the French speaking. Swiss. German speaking part of his Switzerland and not even leaving their own country exactly. Fifty percent of our guests. Last week were French speaking Swiss and it was the first time I've ever actually met those people and I would say to them. Are you French Swiss would say no, no, we are. All MOM and so I I learned something new immediately the K. The identify as swirl. They were saying exactly what you just said they said it's like we are in a different country it's very dramatic here it's different toossion either those on the do shut down it was really cool. They were very excited to see a different part of their own country. So that was wonderful. Now Stephen you own a hotel in Ireland in Dingle Peninsula and now you own a hotel in Switzerland in Loudoun valley two of my favorite places as a businessman working in both these countries how do you compare the support getting from the government and how the two governments are dealing with this crisis? Well, the difference is. Very. Big. I'm still on team. Ireland. So I want to be positive about my own country, but there's not a lot of support coming. Heretofore in Switzerland for example, within two weeks of the crisis occurring. The. Swiss Federal Council which is the Swiss government offered ten percent of the previous year's turnover and So that's quite a considerable amount of money and they offered that as a loan which was repayable over seven years. Zero percent interest. So they're not looking to profit from it and in Ireland we really struggled to get some assistance. And we got ten thousand euros of overdraft line of credit and but repayable at seven and a half percent interest in Switzerland. We got three hundred thousand. So it's quite a big difference there no-interest at all. No interest at all. Of course, Switzerland may have much stronger and deeper reservists than Ireland, but they were able to immediately come up with assistance very little bureaucracy paperwork, and they immediately got to help us in Ireland. The experience was just simply much different to the government really weren't as proactive for as immediate as were here in Switzerland. The roots here what's around her a lot less strict as well There is a two meter rule here, but I haven't seen anybody wearing masks very much, which is kinda shocking for me because I know in Ireland the whole north of is people should be wearing masks. People definitely are observing social distance. One of my friends said to me that the two meter rule has actually brought Swiss people closer together so. That is so insightful to the Swiss society. It's more difficult thing. It's more difficult thing for Irish people or Italian people are Spanish. Two meters distance than it would be for this people or maybe the. Scandinavians. I can see by home people are wondering. Is the Irish pub culture ever going to come back the way it was with social distancing whereas in. Switzerland. Here for me like I'm I'm in the Alps I'm surrounded by fresh air and. Of of lovely space and it's been a wonderful place to be stranded, I don't even want to complain about it because although I I was stranded here for four months. It was the perfect place I felt very safe. I might have felt different if I was in the middle of Zurich or something or Geneva but I felt very safe. I'd in the Alps and it is lovely and peaceful and quiet, and of course, that's what people are coming here for anyway

How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic

"Want to start really by having a look at what is happening in this part of the world and certainly how countries In and around a Middle Europa at handled covid nineteen as pandemic some economic powerhouses. The United States of course the UK have had a bit of a miserable time. You could say but Germany and Switzerland are getting back on their feet and even in the last hour or so here in Zurich. We heard the country's main aviation hub of the national carrier. Swiss have outlined an incredibly aggressive relaunch plan. Of course if we go north to the border in Germany LUFTHANSA'S HOPING TO INC. It's bailout package to do a bit of the same well for more on this. I'm joined here in Zurich Rob Cox regular with us. When is the global editor of Reuters breaking views and on the line from start in south western Germany on a Rosenberg as also the line and she is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy Sigme Global? Welcome to both of you rob. I wanted to start. Do you think something is up? Maybe in this country I think also we look to Australia and certainly Germany as well as everyone starting to behave as a bit of a block at a time when everyone is supposed to be yes nice nice role in together are we moving into a period where people are maybe trying to score a few points. Released position themselves That look we are open for business. And we're moving ahead here. We're kind of in this competitive de Lockdown Mode. Where everybody you know? Calm countries like Switzerland which WanNa score high on the the Doing Business World business indicators and things like that and I think they have something like thirteen hundred. Us companies alone. That have offices or something here so everybody is trying to kind of to ease the ease travel. Do it in the right way. But also the same time to showcase that they've done a good job or a decent job of of battling pandemic of ensuring that their citizens have safe that that and doing it in a sort of you know an intelligent way And in some ways opening opening up the borders as a way to show that off now I think they're quite conservative. You saw you saw. The Federal Council was saying yesterday and in other countries. You know there are still this tension between the politicians as it were and the health professionals at still going on. We're still going to see that for quite some time. But there's definitely a sense of like like let's get moving again But the the the big issue though is you can't just apply what the Swiss do or the Austrians due to say London or Dublin or Perez and I think so. The worry is a little bit like we have these fights over tax policy right That you have this sort of race to the bottom in some ways and I think that's it's one has to be quite careful. So if the Swiss open up or the Germans and people say Look Frankfurt's open for business in Syracuse. Open for business. The worry is that these other guys. I don't know or London that engage a well. We better do it quickly. Problem is that there's no one size fits all for battling this pandemic Rosenberg. When you look from your side of the border but maybe across to Austria and Switzerland do you feel that may be an of course? Federal Council Minister over in Vienna yesterday front from Switzerland. Do you feel that the dock nations are starting to to get work in a bit of unison? Work as Mitteleuropa to say that we can together be the the engine that we can point direction. We know that this is a time of of not great central leadership. I'm not sure if there's really a cross border collaboration as as that. I think it's more happening more here. Is that individual states within Germany. I using this as an opportunity to profile themselves when you look at pandemics throughout history typically they benefit smaller entities smaller countries smallest state smaller city states. And exactly the same has happened in this pandemic and Jimmy Away is positioned the way is positioned also because of its highly federalized decentralized system which means you have sixteen individual states that can make their own lockdown and opening up decisions and these decisions currently being made. They're all over the place and I would say there's kind of a rather than we're in this together. I would say there's a little bit of a rivalry at the moment towards who can open up. Fossa who is more concerned with the health of individuals citizens than the others? So it's still pretty much an looking inwards would say Germany. Do you think that some of that also ladder is up though? I mean whether it's whether you're talking about Bio You're talking about no Don Volya that obviously people who are sitting at the Foreign Ministry in Berlin. There were trying to figure out. How do they put this into a concerted message Which they can put across globally? I get the sense. is certainly in Switzerland while the Swiss like to talk about being humble and they don't WanNa talk about having had a good pandemic you do get the sense here that they are trying to. Of course push their message. This is a country that is going to be open for business. If you need to come to Europe And hopefully do need to come to Europe to have a meeting. Then maybe you might consider coming here. I and I'm wondering if Berlin regardless of what it's doing with a federal structure with the states are doing they're trying to have some kind of unified message or no yes. Of course ultimately there's a lot of coordination still trying to be made on on the national level. Am I do think that Germany has certainly benefited from this Kobe crisis? It has turned a crisis into an opportunity and for a variety of reasons and I think Germany ultimately when you look at where Jimmy Stewart's just before the Kobe crisis it wasn't quite a weak economic position that was stagnation that was not enough of investment. Going on into key sectors of the economy that was all these arguments about stepping up fiscal stimulus and spending and constant pushback from the government that wanted to stick to strict fiscal prudence. All of this is different now. The government is saving business left right and center splashing out it's investing and the economy. The Gym Mindset has changed to away from Frisco prudence that was evidenced of course the supporting joint debt with other European nations. And so in a way. Jimmy's kind of taken an advantage from Kobe. In repositioning itself. And I think if you ask me what does Jiminy and the EU stand in one. Two years down the line. I think Germany will clear when I hear on that we just before we went on air we were talking and you just touched on Dublin Dublin. Of course as as essential in Europe which has done very very well at tech. But we're now in a moment right now we're of course. Companies are more mobile than ever. And certainly when you look at some of those players who are who are in Dublin. Of course their headquarters being On on the. Us West Coast yet. There is mobility They move around the going to look of course for the best tax breaks That are out there. Is this also time and again I mean. Certainly you see the power of the money that various spends on go and put your headquarters or least your your regional or European headquarters in Munich. For example do you see this kind of acceleration? Absolutely the ease of doing business index. This is this is going to be part of it. Everyone's going to look at how you did it during this crisis And I think and how quickly you were able to come out of it and I think come. Countries like like Switzerland Like some of the Nordic countries that have have done a pretty good job a relatively good job relative to France or the UK or Spain or Italy are so they're going to have a better pitch to make an a country like Ireland. Which is you know punches. Well above its weight when it comes to global headquarters for I say European headquarters for many of these TECH COMPANIES. The facebooks and people like that that is also

"federal council" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing

"This rains ranges from Basel Antique Shop House in Geneva just Coming online as well grabwood initital and this moves very quickly. This is not a case of you. Have to Of course Shut your shops and restaurants. you know in two days time. This is by six o'clock this evening. So we're waiting today the Federal Council of the Federal Council In a rather extraordinary move from burn last Friday you had four council members Standing up doing live broadcast of the country were expecting to hear from them at a later point today and everyone believes at that point. Switzerland go into proper shutdown a big rise in the number of cases in Switzerland announced today. Eight hundred. I need cases. And what's the mood like the moment? Well fortunately the sun is out. I think this is GonNa be the great savior for many of us throughout this Fortunately this part of the hemisphere moving into proper springtime. So you right now. I'd are set up here or there is There's there's life out on the streets There is there's been no we were talking about over the weekend. Poll everywhere pockets of panic. Panic buying I think there is that sense though that to shut down Is is coming now. What that will mean something different. We haven't seen the same type of situation That we've Does occur elsewhere in Europe. Shutdown down his so far meant that the people that is this is our closing but kiosks allowed to remain open. Gas Stations Banks can remain open. Post Offices Command Open But it does mean of course any points of large gathering That would be closed down botch will there be life that closing parks for example so there in other parts of Switzerland. There is life out on the street. It's just that they don't want mass gatherings in confined spaces were one thing. That could help a little in Switzerland. Is it civil defense system? Well absolutely and what? We're seeing right now That there's been talk that there will mobilize up to two thousand Troops at some point they. They're also looking at standing up. One of the four Military hospitals as well so these are large scale military hospitals six hundred staff in one battalion. So these are really like almost getting a proper regional hospital up and running so one of these will come online as there has been discussion this morning whether Lebron more online but also over the weekend are Marcus. Hippie is out here producing at the moment. He was talking to our colleague. Carlos stillbirth something else which exists your poll which is also civil defense as well so of course people can get called up Of course you know. Men of a certain age can make a choice If you want to to bear arms and you go into of course The military Side of things or is the civil side as well and there has been a simple call up even have someone working In our shop and cafe who got the phone call the other day It had to go and report in so We had a conversation With our car over the weekend whatever. Listen the civil defense system is a group of people which are neither part of the military service but they've actually been selected through the military recruitment to come in to help emergency situations so the civil defense system and the for example in Zurich. It's part of of the emergency organizations such as police or the fabric. They're part of this kind of emergency corpse and the civil defense system. What specialists that the people they have to regular ups and only get called in in case of an emergency. The system is designed for extreme emergencies. Of course this could be war but as well as national catastrophes may be an airplane. Crash could be a case there. Also other cases which to civil defense system comes in to help. One example is desire extre- Parade Big Techno Party in town where civil defense system helps and supports the existing Rescue services or maybe even the police how important and tell us police this system for Switzerland. The system is designed to come in to support and help. When when there's really big demand and in the past assessor quite well worked for example when we had stems overflowing or big national catastrophes so it's definitely still an important piece of emergency preparation and to what about. During the corona virus outbreak in southern Switzerland. To Civil Defense has already been called into support on transport to bring from A to B in the rest of Switzerland. Currently a special unit of the military has been called in but it could be that the government decides to further Colin more civil defense personnel collar. Silversmith talking to Marcus Hippie. Let's go back to Tyler. Briefly Airlines Tyler. Now warning that if they don't get state support on top of what seemed to be absolutely massive job losses in the cases of many carriers a great many of them could be broke within two months. Absolutely be. We've Seen Air Baltic courses the carrier for Lithuania Latvia and Estonia. They've completely Grounded their fleet Same situation with lots And of course probably those high profile stores Scandinavian Airlines Really keeping a couple of essential routes open letting in ninety percent of their staff not go but ninety percent of the staff Of course are also grounded as well then. There has to be then. Of course you know huge discussions right now Paul. I think this is the one thing that we're waiting for you on one side you have. You got the of leadership coming out and of course talking. But what are those medical measures What the containment measures that are happening? But I think a lot of this also needs to be done at the exact same time it but it needs to be sort of second third item when you have these failings of people's understanding from the microphone. Say by the way. What are we doing for for business? In general what do you do if you are a small business owner or a mid size business owner or even own airline it? What type of support is going to be there? And I think that's what we need to see. Certainly the speech writers and the advisors really talking to leadership about because we know this is awful. What is happening in terms of from certainly from from health issues? But I think there's also going to be a serious round of also mental health issues For anyone who sees their jobs under threat multiples editor-in-chief tighter play in Zurich. We will talk later about the political response to the outbreak. But let's focus on hell. I in from Swansea. How expert has warned today that the country's outbreak deteriorating very fast while one doctor in the UK said the virus was the biggest crisis to ever face the country's National Health Service over the weekend the UK government confirmed that at some stage. It will ask those over. The age of seventy to isolate themselves at home potentially for several months. Chris Smith is a consultant for Logistics Cambridge University crisis. Begin without idea of asking millions of all the people to stay at home potentially for many many months. Is that something? That's even achievable. Well I think people are engaged in this and they're worried about this and concerned and I think that they will listen if we ask them to do something like this but it has to be done in a way this justified at the right time in other words and also you've got to use common sense and it has to be made clear to people that this is a common sense thing because there are plenty of seventy year olds who quite frankly a lot fitter and a lot healthier than I am and therefore their risk of disease is probably not much higher than mine on the other hand. I know. Plenty of seventy olds. Who have lots of other health problems and they probably are a high risk of succumbing to this virus? So it's not a given that just because you're right for certain age bracket that you're suddenly having had your seventieth birthday you go from a lower risk to a higher risk. That's not the case. It's all about using common sense if you're fit active healthy seventy year old. If you were to stick yourself in your living room for the next three months you would become an inactive. Unfit less healthy seventy year old. No one wants that balance is there. Is that idea the? Do you want to contain the risk of of people in those most vulnerable age groups of contracting the virus but isolation loneliness or very long periods has its own health impacts to course and if you're an older person that relies on people popping in to keep an eye on you and you fall over and break your hip and no one pops into keep an eye on new because there with the best will in the world avoiding you to avoid infecting you. That's a terrible outcome to isn't it? So one has to use common sense and that goes for both the person who's isolating themselves and the people who might come visit the people who are in isolation for instance. Some families get together at the weekend and they bring the grandkids over. Well maybe think to oneself all the children well have symptoms that go to code. You might risk it with other things in the past. You might have said always just runny nose. We'll be fine if you end up in a situation where you've got ill kids. Don't take them seek grandma but you know just use common sense. I'm that was one of the concerns that the British government has has raised about this idea of closing schools. Is that what what will end up happening is that those children who themselves may not suffer greatly from the virus could pass it on to that grandparents. You'll be looking off to them. Yeah there're there is a double whammy potentially in the offing with this one because yes the kids come home from school but if they then infect their parents the parents take it to the workplace or they in fact they grandparents who are off caring for them. That's not a good outcome but equally if you bring parents out of the workforce that's a loss to say the NHS if Maman data doctors nurses or other health care professionals which we sorely need at the moment so it's not a simplisafe just shot schools because there will be knock on consequences psychological sociological ones and also economic ones. Just on the question of the. Uk's how service the were a lot of issues raised over the weekend about the capacity of the health service to deal with large numbers of seriously and critically ill people yes one to bear in mind. We have an excellent health service. It's actually the envy of the world but it is there is a system that provides day-to-day healthcare for the needs on an average day of an average population. It's not there to provide pandemic services and that's what we're expecting it to do what we're effectively doing is saying. Well this tractor which I normally plow fills with I'm gonNA take you for a spin down the motorway. See how it gets on. It'll go down the motorway. It won't be pretty similarly. If I took the Ferrari off the silverstone and I tried to plow filled with it they both got nice big engines tractor. My Ferrari I know which would not do a very good job and the. Nhs's trying to reinvent itself to do one thing that it's not well prepared for because by virtue of what it does. It isn't well prepared for it nor the staff but he's trying to be and you know hats off to the people who work very very haunting. I happen to have been a lot of questions particularly since The UK Prime Minister. Boris Johnson lost spoke on Thursday questions about the UK's response and they sense that the country has chosen to pursue a different path to other nations while the country's chosen dues to pursue a policy informed by science but also one that's realistic and recognizes that there are limits to what we can do. The reality is if you park a car on a hill and you walk away with the Hambrecht Lifton. Come back to the car now. Late Ham break off. The Hill hasn't gone away. In the meantime the call was still regain momentum rolling down the hill and so it is with this virus. If you just shut everything for two weeks it's going to go away is still going to be there so you might be shutting everything for months and that's what Patrick valance was saying this week. If if we were to shot schools. We don't just do this for two weeks. We're talking the long haul. We're talking thirteen. Maybe fourteen weeks of closure to actually achieve any kind of meaningful effect and that's notwithstanding the knock-on effects as we've just been discussing kids coming out of school needing.

"One asset class that has been absolutely pummeled. Paul has been bitcoin at least this year. And joining us now as somebody who is a believer in the blockchain technology of Aleve. Oh, believer in crypto acids, and has a lot of money invested in the securities. Daniel masters, chairman of quenchers group, joining us now from London, Danny, thank you so much for being with us. I thought it was really interesting. A move that Switzerland made that seems to give some edification to the Chris crypto acid world. Yes. Hi, nice to be with you. Again. It's been a very, very interesting. She dies in crypto. Following what's been obviously a terrible year now, Switzerland might not be most prominent nation from the US perspective. But it is the largest economy in the world bigger than a Belgian Tina. This was federal council just issue that framework, entitled, the legal framework for district technology and blockchain and it's been issued by the Swiss federal council, the most senior office in that Swiss nights nation this Switzerland, in my opinion is a new type constitution. It is a global precedence, and it reminds me a lot of the twenty twelve US jobs act. So Daniel, I guess when I read that bath, Switzerland, I even though it is a relatively small connett Connie if from a banking perspective. It's been a global. Leader forever. So I kind of viewed it, maybe as validation, if you will, of blockchain, technology and crypto currencies, you know, giving the leadership position at Switzerland's kind of always had in financial services. You'll correct? They are indeed happened for many, a decade leaders in financial services that makes district back much more credible. The report itself is very substantial called a hundred sixty two pages of a hundred legal cross-references, and what really drew our attention to. It was that on my professional network. This was viewed by over three hundred seventy five thousand people that happened to correspond with twenty five percent rally in crypto measured for dumpling bitcoin between two hundred dollars and full thousand dollars. So I think this is a meaningful development on. Yeah. Danny your coin chairs has combined one billion dollars of assets under management focused on crypto currencies and their crypto assets. And I'm just wondering what are you expecting next year? I mean, we are we going to be talking more about bitcoin, as a viable long term asset class next year. We'll it rally or is it going to be another difficult period for for it? Well, you know, I think this, this report is actually a possibly a catalyst. Listen interesting developments in twenty seventeen crypto values would driven by non-institutional investors. This current given rally was saying in twenty eight fifteen Perol inflows and per information from all his is institutionally driven. This is supported by the Swiss government stones, because it's the sort of encouragement, the institutional investment committees can buy into in terms of the likely shape of the rally that we may see next year. I think it will be much narrower than we saw in the post the proliferation of tokens many, which will fail. But from that, wreckage similar to what happened off to the NASDAQ rush in two thousand one I think we're gonna see a now a band of some protocol, cones and some asset coins that are going to do quite well, what else would the? The crypto market, broadly, defined liked to see to, I guess, further validated technology and the potential use cases, Switzerland may be one of those milepost. What else do you think the market is really looking forward to provide some support for this technology discouraging? Yeah, you're right. I think that the, the evolutionary big bang that we saw in crypt over the last few years since been lost the aspirational, the technology companies that we're directly involved with all developing, really interesting technology. It has been slow to come to the market. And that's what the monkey needs to see and the headwinds that these kind of technology companies actually face is being addressed by some of these Swiss thumb meshes so just quickly money laundering, and some terrorist financing always can son Swiss of taking this account recognized its importance and said, in this studies detection, so I fall, it's not been a big issue.
