how did know how would you become a key point to islamist terror and you know the scene so we're going to be most interested in pursuing an exclusive report from a destroyed city in. the philippines in the sun. starts people are living on t.w. . going to be an epic deal but it'll take another four weeks that's what u.s. president donald trump told the world following a meeting with the chinese vice premier in washington we'll talk to a u.s. political advisor to find out what's going on. also coming up some song rolls out its first five g. capable smartphone in south korea but the euphoria is defined by plunging profits in the first quarter. hello and welcome to business i'm going to jones in berlin
10:31 am
good to have you with us u.s. president to donald trump says a quote epic trade deal with china could be just weeks away but he stopped short of mentioning a summit date when any such agreement would be signed the announcement also with gandhi on details but it's also the question of when the united states will lift tariffs on china remains a major sticking point. months of wrangling hundreds of billions of dollars worth of tariffs and a u.s. pledge to radically change china does business now u.s. president donald trump is indicating that the trade conflict between the world's top two economies is nearing an end we've agreed to far more than we have left to agree to. the fact i would say i think i can say that some of the toughest things have to reach if we have some things that are actually easier ways you know that we're we're doing but it's a very very using
10:32 am
a word that i don't like using too often but it's a very very comprehensive deal on the chinese side some flattery of little caution and even less detail. because you know i read. week. steal from. you because of course because of the trade conflict began early last year when the u.s. voted to crack down on what it called unfair chinese trade practices these include station to invention in markets and the handling of foreign intellectual property china is already committed to buying more u.s. goods and to opening its markets but questions remain over how such changes would be enforced there are still some major major issues but. we should be taking this it would have softened the start i think i think it was the. characteristic
10:33 am
conference from u.s. president donald trump and the more cautious optimism from those who've been doing most of the negotiations the world's biggest economies may be close to a deal but getting there may take longer than expected. well for more i'm joined by angela i dare an american lawyer political adviser and the founder of d.c. berlin consulting that is the platform i understand that allows him to translate washington to germany or the world. start by explaining what happened last night in washington well. we didn't learn a whole lot new i suppose the biggest piece of news is that they're still negotiating at all i think if you rewind about six months the chances of coming to a deal i think were used as less likely and now it looks like the momentum really is moving toward a deal and so i think the deal have to entail in order to actually happen. for a few weeks now we've really. known the contours of the deal
10:34 am
a few different buckets the removal of tariffs as you mentioned the purchasing commitments you know china's going to make over a trillion dollars worth of purchasing commitments from the united states in agricultural goods in energy in industrial goods lots of changes to the intellectual property system really at the end of the day it's going to be a great deal of changes. within china. china is really giving the most and the u.s. is really not giving that much so the end of the day it's going to be a big give from china in order to create this deal as you've mentioned which will be a big deal but we of course we know that china already announced and said it would make concessions for example purchasing more active culture products as well. so what is the crucial sticking point what is the make or break moment yeah i think the make or break moment is this if you if you look at robert like has
10:35 am
a for example the u.s. trade representative who is really in charge of this process and there's a whole cadre of u.s. officials who are managing this process but like has there's really the one to watch. and the make or break is really about enforcement how do you get the two largest economies in the world who have two very different systems one of course the american capitalistic system and the other being the chinese state run model how do you get them to come together and have. a deal that can be enforced and if you listen to white highs or he really talks a lot about enforcement you know i think they really have largely agreement on the contours of the deal the question is you know can they actually bring in it to into force can actually implement the deal will china live up to its commitments you know a year from now what does that look like two years from now if there's a new presidential administration how does it look can it be enforced is it durable over time so that's really what they're trying to figure out is can they find a mechanism to do that all right and they try to figure that out hopefully within the next four weeks then will be the wiser adair from d.c.

fed board. well there is definitely some concern here that is terrific qualities may have been oversold the sexual harassment allegations are only part of it but his a past policy record has been somewhat confusing he's advocated for example for a return to the gold standard of all things and his past tenure as kansas had a very he was known as a hawk meaning that he favored low inflation and higher interest rates since then and he seemed to have moved over to president trump's way of thinking president trump of course known for attacking the fed for raising interest rates and that is going to be the biggest issue here people worry that his appointment is a sign that this is a further way of donald trump trying to walk under undermine fado policy in order to just provide himself with some short term economic gains i would have people in frankfurt and in europe as a whole actually make of france wanting to go ahead with introducing new digital

services tax despite opposition from the u.s. also some controversy within the e.u. as far as i know. well people here are watching this closely in the lot because france has proposed taxes are going to be here to these are these are songs that these companies can afford but because it sets a trend now france may have gotten there early but austria has also announced plans italy the u.k. . germany also considering their own forms of these plans the e.u. did try as you say and failed to get in why the plan underway but that is likely to resurface people here say that regulation for these big companies is inevitable despite u.s. pushback it just remains to be seen whether governments are able to hit that sweet spot of getting what they need out of these tech companies without alienating them because they do provide jobs jobs and growth where they are all right general them allowing their reporting from the front of stock exchange for us thank you so much . samson reported its worst to drop
