ASX: The local share market is expected to fall at the open today after US stocks slipped overnight.

G20: Anthony Albanese wrapped up his first G20 summit since becoming prime minister, calling the event successful and cooperative.

Leaders from the world's major economies have ended their meeting in Bali following two days of discussions. At his final day of summit talks, Albanese pushed to progress trade deals with Europe.

Jobs: Australia’s strong jobs market is expected to hold when the Australian Bureau of Statistics releases official data today.

But some experts think the jobs market may have passed its tightest point with the relentless demand for workers keeping Australia at full employment.

Crowned: An electric vehicle was named Australia’s car of the year, beating a competitive line-up of petrol, diesel and other EVs for the title.

The Kia EV6, a battery-powered SUV, won the title from Carsales, defeating a field of 12 vehicles, in what one judge said should prove a point to "anyone who doubts the ability of EVs to be engaging to drive".

Popular choice: Speaking of electric vehicles, more than 1 million Australians are currently in the market for an EV and one in every three would be interested in investing if smart charging stations were available close to their home, new research from Telsyte found.

Bye-bye: One of Australia’s first meal delivery services has shut down, effective immediately, putting 15,000 people out of a job.

Deliveroo told customers they could no longer place orders with the service after the company went into voluntary administration.

Deliveroo said it could no longer operate without making a significant investment in Australia to challenge its competitors.

Side hustle: An online marketplace aiming to be the "Airbnb for swimming pools" is diving into the Australian market.

Swimply is designed to help people rent their household pools with around 100 already registered.
