Rolls-Royce to axe 800 jobplaces in marine division

Engine maker Rolls-Royce is axing 800 jobs in its marine division as weakness in the struggling oil and gas sector takes its toll. The UK-based firm said it was too early to say where the jobs axe would fall. Its marine business employs 4,800 people globally with around 400 in the UK, of which half are based in Bristol and the remainder across offices in the Midlands and a manufacturing site in Dunfermline, Scotland. Rolls said the job cuts will be made next year as part of an overhaul to make annual cost savings of around £45 million to £50 million. The unit's workforce has already been slashed from 6,000 in 2015.

Oil prices jumped after OPEC deal to cut output

An agreement between oil producer club OPEC and Russia to produce less to drain a global glut sent prices soaring in record trading volumes on Thursday, even as analysts warned other producers will likely top up supply. On Wednesday in Vienna, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries reached a deal to reduce their oil production by 1.2 million barrels per day in order to raise global prices. The deal also hinges on non-OPEC countries contributing an additional 600,000 barrels per day worth of cuts, with about half of that coming from Russia. On Thursday Azerbaijan said it was also willing to engage in talks on cuts.

Switzerland: working mothers is normal

The average of the Swiss working moms is the highest in Europe. According to a survey conducted by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO), about four out of five mothers were professionally active in 2015. According to research, if the rate of working mothers in Switzerland is so high it is due to work-generalization; moreover, in special ranking part-time women, Switzerland ranks second among European nations behind the Netherlands.

However it provides a series of changes, including a sharp reduction in working hours, corresponding to a working day less per week.

Tourism improved Swiss UBS Consumption indicator for October

The Swiss UBS consumption index rose slightly to 1.49 for October from a downwardly-revised 1.47 previously, which was originally reported as 1.59. The sizeable downward revision will cause some concerns and the index overall has not changed significantly over the past 3 months, although the overall impact will be limited. Although positive developments in the automobile market and strong domestic tourism supported private consumption, the fall in retail sales prevented a strong growth.
