a crypto currency the petro arrives on global markets but is it doomed to fail in its fight against painful hyperinflation. this is your business update on having a home for you glad you could join me germany's governing coalition says it has a plan for getting dirty diesel powered vehicles off the country's roads according to the transport ministry drivers living in and around the fourteen most polluted cities in germany can take advantage of trade in incentives and retrofits the diesel cars that exceed european emission levels the car manufacturers are expected to pay for most of the costs of the retrofits german governments hoping to avoid a court order driving bans for diesel cars which were widely discussed in the wake of the ongoing diesel a mission scandal. earlier today i spoke to my. own who's at the paris motor show and i asked her if the latest developments in the diesel talks were also a topic there in the french capital. oh yes definitely and as you said details are

change was caused by an emissions cheating scandal and really it's hard to find anyone else but the manufacturers to blame for that sort of event now clearly the industry wide reckoning that was caused by the scandal is still ongoing and is still being hashed out for example here at the paris motor show among other venues and indeed various comments from the head over i know a french call maker all very interesting and with that in mind what are the european countries doing like france for example ginnell to tackle the problem. you know it's very interesting that the paris motor show is taking place in the french capital the french capital of course being one of the first cities to announce an upcoming baton on diesel and petrol vehicles in the city center and the paris motor show is actually taking place for the one hundredth time here in the capital but really what everybody here is looking towards is a. mandated rules across the european union could look like everybody is looking
1:20 pm
towards an important to emissions reduction vote happening tomorrow and. could vote mandated reductions of up to forty five percent by twenty thirty compared to previous proposals of thirty percent compared to what the industry wants which is to twenty now this is obviously causing a lot of tension here at the paris motor show now carmakers are saying this could negatively impact. jobs and cause major disruptions while on a while those and for favor of those aggressive cuts saying about anything less would be a token gesture to now do much alone at the paris motor show thank you. meanwhile german manufacturer is there a showing off their electric cars dime to see year date is that she presented the c. economic his first all electric vehicle that goes on sale next year manufacturers have invested billions in new battery production as regulators clamp down on vehicle admissions but analysts worry consumers aren't willing to pay more for electric

1:22 pm
infrastructure right from the beginning so dose two factors have made this market up until now unlike in many other cities the locations of new charging stations are determined by where residents see they need them. car owners also benefit from substantial tax incentives for electric vehicles as a result say the authorities residents are being won over to the idea of emo billet . eindhoven a ninety minute drive away already has forty three electrically powered city busses they have a range of around one hundred kilometers on a full battery which needs around half an hour to charge the buses were retrofitted by video the bus builder's order books are currently full thanks also to the dutch government's ambitious commitments. to step in twenty twenty five all new protests but few calls should be zero emission another small bit of course a big part of that twenty thirty years should be all operationally done in zero

emission because twenty twenty five looks. as not if but meanwhile the whole vns technical university now boasts a special course in electro mobility where students build more efficient batteries but even the netherlands has some catching up to do says this professor especially compared to china where there are currently sixteen thousand electric buses on the road. germany's coalition government has reached an agreement on immigration reforms designed to make the country more attractive to skilled workers from around the walls a late night deal is a first step towards a more open migration or it will put the needs of the german economy and immigrants qualifications at the center of immigration policy the plan will continue to treat asylum seekers and economic migrants differently that could allow for great effect in itif it refugees who successfully integrate in germany. and our correspondent how close do you see is covering this story for us paul what does this mean for

down. and will be flexible enough to the labor market where it does have a chronic skill shortage. let's look at one of these sectors in particular so in i.t. there's about fifty five thousand jobs that are currently open but germany isn't the only country competing for international i.t. specialist there's a lots of demand in many countries china for example which it may be more attractive to go there or the u.s. so we cannot rely on migration. as i was just you know as the only aspect we're also going to have to build on education because while there are one point six million jobs open in germany and there's also two point four million people unemployed it's got to be possible to shift at least some of these people. to the other side by. the education question but it sounds financial correspondent doing
