"Milky" pudding are seen on shelves in a supermarket in the town of Sderot near the Israeli-Gaza border in southern Israel December 18, 2014. Israel's high cost of living is set to dominate a March 17 election that could shake up Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition, with voter anger symbolised by an overpriced dessert. In a country where the influence of small parties makes elections notoriously hard to forecast, many experts still expect rightwing leader Netanyahu to keep power. But the focus on domestic policy and economics, rather than on security and Palestinian peacemaking, means the outcome is even more difficult to predict than usual. Netanyahu is making the economy a central theme. On December 21 he proposed raising the minimum wage for civil servants and marketing more lower cost apartments. He has promised to lift the 18 percent value added tax on milk, cheese, eggs and bread. To match Analysis ISRAEL-ELECTION/ECONOMY Picture taken December 18, 2014.

A customer checks loaves of bread at a bakery in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon December 18, 2014. Israel's high cost of living is set to dominate a March 17 election that could shake up Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition, with voter anger symbolised by an overpriced dessert. In a country where the influence of small parties makes elections notoriously hard to forecast, many experts still expect rightwing leader Netanyahu to keep power. But the focus on domestic policy and economics, rather than on security and Palestinian peacemaking, means the outcome is even more difficult to predict than usual. Netanyahu is making the economy a central theme. On December 21 he proposed raising the minimum wage for civil servants and marketing more lower cost apartments. He has promised to lift the 18 percent value added tax on milk, cheese, eggs and bread. To match Analysis ISRAEL-ELECTION/ECONOMY Picture taken December 18, 2014.

A man holds his bag on his head as he walks through a market in Colombo October 24, 2014. Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is expected to soon seek a third six-year term, announced a 2015 budget on Friday that trims the value-added tax and reduces the budget deficit while providing a range of handouts, mainly to rural residents. The president also announced that employers' contribution to employees' provident funds will be raised to 14 percent of pay, from the current 12 percent, which would raise labour costs for the private sector.

Broadcom's Asia operations headquarters office is seen at an industrial park in Singapore September 16, 2014. As Singapore's prosperity leaves its manufacturing base vulnerable to cheaper neighbours, it is banking on a business-friendly environment, advanced infrastructure, and its status as an Asian hub to attract high-value investments and businesses. But the transition, which is getting added impetus from the government's push to increase the economy's productivity while reducing reliance on foreign workers, will not be smooth or immediate. In March, U.S. semiconductor company Broadcom shifted some of its operations from Singapore to Ireland as its tax incentives in the Southeast Asia nation expired. Asked about the move, Jennifer Baumgartner, a senior manager for corporate communications at Broadcom, said in an email that "Singapore remains an essential Broadcom location and we are not materially changing any production".

Romania's Finance Minister Ioana Petrescu gestures during an interview with Reuters in Bucharest April 7, 2014. Romania will scrap the tax on profits that companies reinvest in the country and cut some other levies to help create jobs and secure economic growth of around 3 percent this year, the finance minister said on Monday. The government will also reduce firms' social security payments by 5 percentage points, slash value-added tax on certain foods and, once it can afford to, introduce a lower income tax rate for low earners, Petrescu told Reuters in an interview.
