People cross a street outside a tax free department store popular among Chinese tourists in Tokyo, Japan, February 11, 2016. Chinese tourists spent less in Tokyo shops during the Lunar New Year holidays compared with a year earlier, retailers said, as a stronger yen and slower economic growth at home discouraged the kind of "explosive buying" that became a buzzword in 2015.

Chinese tourists shop in the Everrich duty free shopping mall in Kinmen county
Chinese tourists shop in the Everrich duty free shopping mall in Kinmen county, Taiwan, September 8, 2015. Rustic Kinmen, with a population of less than 129,000, is a half-hour ferry ride to China, but it takes an hour to fly to major Taiwan cities. Just off its shores, glass-walled high-rises wink seductively from the booming mainland port of Xiamen in one of China's most prosperous provinces. Kinmen is eyeing closer commercial ties with China. It wants to pipe water from Xiamen and has plans to build a bridge and set up a glittering free trade zone with the city. China is seeking unification with Taiwan under its "one country, two systems" formula by which Hong Kong, a former British colony, returned to Chinese rule in 1997. And Kinmen, or "Golden Gate", is a test for China's ambitions to recover Taiwan through soft power. Picture taken September 8, 2015. REUTERS/Pichi Chuang

Aluminium ingots are seen outside a warehouse that stores London Metal Exchange stocks in Port Klang Free Zone, outside Kuala Lumpur, March 23, 2015. Malaysia's customs agency hopes to reach an agreement soon with the London Metal Exchange, after the LME threatened to stop registering new metal in the country if the new Malaysian Goods and Services tax, due to take effect next month, was levied in two bonded zones there, a customs official said. Malaysia is a major storage point for LME metals, holding more than 430,000 tonnes, including nearly half of the LME's nickel stocks, 85 percent of its tin, a third of its lead and almost a fifth of its copper inventories.

A store remains closed in the Santurce sector in San Juan
A store remains closed in the Santurce sector in San Juan, March 11, 2014. Puerto Rico on Tuesday sold $3.5 billion of junk-rated bonds at a surprisingly low tax-free interest rate under 9 percent, which was still high enough to tempt investors to snap up the bonds despite the Caribbean island's difficult cash position. Worries linger about Puerto Rico's economy, which has been shrinking nearly non-stop since 2006 and suffers from a dwindling population, high unemployment now topping 15 percent, and chronic government budget deficits.

Cafes, shops and taxis around Athens are handing out receipts by the thousands to customers frantically stuffing their pockets with proof of payment for anything from a glass of ouzo to a family Sunday lunch. Business has not suddenly turned good in recession-hit Greece, but people are clamouring for receipts after the government announced in December they would be required to claim a standard income tax-free allowance that was previously granted automatically. .Picture taken January 25, 2010.
