1:21 pm
seventy fifth minute and putting the results beyond doubt. and in the final minutes van had backed his fifth brace of the campaign by four one the final score like six attacking duo of housen invent made all the difference. in sunday's late but frankfurt overcame visitors late because in a close game the hosts had stumbled in their last couple of bonus league games but they had too much talent for their struggling opponents to handle. frank first top scorer luke a yellow which had to settle for a place on the bench but that didn't blunt his team's attack the hundred side took the lead in the twenty eighth minute when philip costin crossed to danny de costa to pay a lot to the linesman but the goal scorer was just one side one nil to frank felt that hotline. in the second half it was coast to choose turn to get on the scoresheet after sebastian hour as cross from the servant space. to nil
1:22 pm
and the hosts were in control. les vickers and weren't going down without a fight though corinne bello robbie powered home to half the deficit with twenty five minutes to go. but frankfurt held on to return to winning ways after back to back as legal losses. it's just business is now at monaco and france is facing a tough budget situation after the government was forced to backtrack on economic reform yes yeah the budget deficit in france is not looking very good it actually sets to rise to over three percent of g.d.p. that as a result of president in muslim of course promised to boost wages for low income workers and he made the platters the pledges following weeks of protests the demonstrations were originally sparked by anger over a planned fuel tax hike in response might cost crap the tax and increase the minimum wage by one hundred euros a month the total cost of those concessions could be up to fifteen billion viewers
1:23 pm
fueling concerns of unsustainable debts. meanwhile the e.u. commission says that it's in talks with rome over italy's revised twenty nine thousand budget proposal with it the italian government aims at avoiding disciplinary action from the european union because italy's original spending plans were found to be in breach of e.u. fiscal rules italy's leaders want to increase welfare payments cut taxes and reduce the retirement age but the e.u. says those plans will raise the country's deficit beyond acceptable levels. of more that i'm joined by our financial market correspondent all of us in frankfurt italy so the three percent of g.d.p. deficit limits is part of the e.u. stability and growth pact what does it mean when a heavyweight micron's breaks that rule. well it means that it's setting a bad example for others and already the telly in government has noted as much that
1:24 pm
now france would be in that corner as well and of course it makes it all the more difficult for the e.u. commission or the other finance ministers and heads of governments and states to reel in italy and france and their big heavyweights and they both of course have their issues why they're doing this in france everybody knows you already said it it's the political situation in the country the village on the yellow vests basically hindering mccraw in performing the reforms that many in the markets but also other many economists and politicians believe would be vital to improve francis' competitiveness the problem with criticism of this kind of policy is whoever is doing it is doing it from a difficult position even germany germany was among the first to break the maastricht rules back in the time when chancellor schroeder of the s.p.d. was reforming the labor market and was using that as an excuse to overspend ok so
1:25 pm
we had many already breaking the rules including germany well now italy the result second largest economy of course is in line with that three percent limit but its overall debt is so enormous that we need to worry about any additional budget deficit how markets coping with all that very briefly. well yeah the markets are coping with surprisingly well the equity markets but also the euro the euro actually recovering from that slide last week but remember whatever the deficit it's the e.c.b. is standing by to offer all the support that needs to be given mario draghi the president of the e.c.b. reiterated that last week. and from that thank you so much for the update. and figures out today show that industrial production in turkey is shot five point seven percent in october that's more than anticipated turkey's economy is struggling with a domestic currency crisis the lira tumbled as much as forty seven percent against
1:26 pm
us dollar in august g.d.p. expanded by only one point six percent in the third quarter rating agencies like fitch expect teka to slide into recession and the negative outlook could weigh on the upcoming regional elections. the situation in istanbul seems a bit more relaxed than two months ago back then the political differences with the usa caused a severe economic crisis inflation fell slightly to just under twenty two percent the value of the turkish lira has stabilized this was aided by the fact that the country's central bank raised the key interest rate to twenty four percent so is everything all right now not really exports rose by nine and a half percent since last october due to a weekly or at the same time imports slumped by almost twenty one point five percent domestic demand also fell by three point five percent the crisis doesn't seem to be over yet the government now wants to ensure that the turks feel as
