a deal is to be reached. it's being described as an informal summit. austrian chancellor's a pasty and cooks appear to be living up to the relaxed atmosphere as british prime minister to resign may arrive for dinner. but her main task is to convince the whole of the e.u. that her brags that package will work. ahead of formal negotiations may remained positive in the face of continuing harsh criticism over her exit proposals i believe this is the right proposal because it maintains frictionless trade it's the only credible and the goetia will plan on the table that delivers no hard border and although i'd also delivers on the votes of the british people and if we're going to achieve a successful conclusion then just as the u.k. has evolved its position the e.u. will need to evolve its position to. german chancellor angela merkel spoke to waiting journalists on her arrival in salisbury and reflected

a complainer but even here inside of the frankfurt stock exchange germany's financial have we don't even have a working cell phone network and when you leave the city and you go for example on a train or too many rural areas in many areas you won't have a network at all so now there is to this discussion of all the five g. and network that could be established here in the next two years in germany and now we are you learning from the head of the german chancellor ear that it's completely not realistic to have a working five g. network in pretty much the entire country because they are saying that this could become too expensive and this is really a shame when you compare germany true other countries i was just recently in thailand i was amazed in the northern part of the country how well the cell phone system is working there but it seems that it still will take
a long time until germany will be also competitive when you talk about cell phone coverage. from for thank you now as we've heard from mark hoffman earlier migration is on top of the agenda at the e.u. leaders summit in austria war is that the russian syrian offensive in italy could spur another wave of refugees at a time when the debate over mass migration is that societies in europe at oakley's germany increasing numbers see migration as the biggest threat facing their country obvious look at refugees and as a welcome addition to society and to the economy because many e.u. economies on the are in full employment and jobs remain unfilled in particular those at the locals no longer want to do. this hotel in southern amsterdam is new and trendy there are even fresh vegetables growing on the roof but despite the calm impression the hotel industry in general has a problem not enough people want to work there thousands of jobs need to be filled

in the kitchen employees often work in shifts and you don't get rich in the process all this makes hotel employment unattractive for many dutch people was he knows there are always jobs to be filled at the reception desk he works to convince the staff he's ready to take on the job in just a few minutes giving people information welcome then make them happy so you'd be informative. if they just like wassim the other refugees interview in english it's the language most commonly spoken in hotels across amsterdam also like was seen most of the refugees have little to no experience in the business that's need to belong the most important thing is not necessarily their education but rather their motivation we have hotel management schools that are well equipped to train people for the kitchen or reception of the steps. two and a half hours later the first job fair for refugees is complete and in his pocket
