A man sleeps inside his truck in front of containers inside a port in the northern Taiwan city of Keelung December 8, 2008. Taiwan's exports in November fell 23.3 percent from a year earlier, worse than forecast and the sharpest decline in seven years, the latest sign that the island is headed for recession and adding to pressure on the central bank to cut rates more aggressively later this week.
