1:03 pm
standard of living to the standard of living of everyone listening to us than the trade war between china and the united states because it means that trade tariffs will go up if you are goods will circulate around the world won't be able to circulate around french goods as easily around the world and jobs will be destroyed a trade war will destroy jobs in france and in europe and in this area to europe has to unite to resist that. and that was a man a french minister of economy and finance with me in the studio now is my colleague stephen beardsley from the business desk and in beijing is correspondent motive. good to have with a few with us let me start with you stephen we heard what the french minister had to say the stakes in this dispute extremely high what is the u.s. trying to achieve with these measures given that the trade talks to continuing simple once the been china to its will and the u.s. probably believes you would imagine that trump sees the u.s. economy and its strong state and sees leverage there he also sees the state of the
1:04 pm
chinese economy where economic indicators are really sort of going down performances going down and says ok here is some leverage that i have look you know the aims the u.s. aims in these negotiations were always very very broad rights it wanted on one hand to reduce its trade deficit with china on the other hand it wanted to stop what it saw as unfair business practices by china that includes subsidizing chinese subsidizing their own companies which made them unfairly competitive in the marketplace includes the cyber theft of intellectual property and the force handover of intellectual property from firms who are active in china and that's really the sticking point that's really appears to be gumming up these negotiations there's a very sensitive issues for china some of these things technological advances are really seen as a big on the domestic policy agenda for china it needs to move ahead according to its china twenty twenty five and so it maybe has a tent to enact some of these measures that washington wants some aim to put pressure on china and let me talk too much if building it in china much yes what
1:05 pm
have been the reaction from china so find can we expect a retaliate. we can for sure expect a real retaliation that is what they have sat and it's in the launch a coffin to nash of this kind of international trade war what this rich elation mike looked like is difficult to say they haven't elaborated on that they do not have as many possibilities to harm the u.s. as the u.s. has to hama china because they import less goods from the u.s. so they will have to find other means they might steal a for example a customs clearance for some products they might investigate american companies here and they will of course impose some type of spec to watch extent we do not know it's all good to see even though when trump was announcing these tout if he described a situation like the u.s. everyone sees the u.s. like a piggy bank in the dipping it including china this doubt of such a punishing china bid what impact will they have on u.s.
1:06 pm
consumers and the economy right i mean the u.s. consumers will pay more because of course we know that in a globalized economy it's not so simple as everyone is dipping their hands and the u.s. piggy bank were heavily reliant in the u.s. on goods that come from china and including manufacturing in china as much as mentioned so it will take some time probably a few months but the prices will go up you have to understand that businesses that are importing chinese goods into the u.s. they only have so many options when it comes to rising tariffs they can either eat the cost they can pass it on to the consumer or they can find another supplier and so in the case when you can't find another supplier then it may be easier when it's ten percent to eat that cost at twenty five percent on all of these goods that is much much more difficult you're talking about everything from rubber gaskets to bicycles so it affects a large range of products consumers are definite go see the difference so they're going to feel the pinch in the u.s. what is the what about in beijing what are people saying there how valid they that this trade dispute is going to have an impact on them. china's economy
1:07 pm
is still very much reliant on exports so any increase in tariffs will have an impact on people know that there is little public discussion because this is china where we could see where the opinion is leaning leaning the people's opinion but we have seen something in the beginning of the week on monday shares dropped dramatically in the shanghai stock exchange the shans and stock exchange and hong kong. and they have stepped allies now but we have we got an inside into the nervousness of the chinese markets that so what both of you are saying the stakes in this dispute an obvious hike what is no longer in beijing and stephen beard's the film of business says thank you very much for your perspectives. let me now bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the world a thai activist who was jailed for sharing an unflattering article about thailand's

1:20 pm
tottenham hotspur will go head to head for the title and the europa league final will be between arsenal and chelsea the blues on thursday dash the hopes of bundesliga side i'm chock frankfurt by beating them in a penalty shootout the english club took the lead in the first half with a goal from reuben enough to stick but frank let's look at your bitch level the school after the break with the game tied at the end of extra time the match went to a penalty shootout chances goalkeeper made two saves to break frankfurt's hearts and the all english final between chelsea and arsenal will be played in baku. now to talk more about all of this is pablo fully any awesome dude of the sport says welcome bob the lovely to see you explain this why i have kind of the premier league teams been so dominant in all the competitions for a fat month first of first of all every day it's nice to see
1:21 pm
a different and to competition we've seen lots of. wealthy clubs first and foremost us what we're talking about here at four club spurs liverpool arsenal and chelsea obviously they have big budgets they have big wages that they can offer to players and that is very important because they can of course lure those big players from other clubs and we're talking as well about an incredibly competitive league the premier league everyone knows you know so the players face. sort of very tough teams base the weekend weekend so comes as no surprise but we also need to note that this season impose competitions big teams that we're used to seeing performing very well like i mentioned before spanish teams are ground with barcelona then of course italian joins you vent as m.p.'s d. from france and let it go madrid also from spain have underperformed so that combination has permitted these bigger british english sides to go the whole way now going back to the budget issue if we look at how much money they can actually
1:22 pm
spend on players this is important to note when you compare it to smaller deeks across europe now they spend for example eighty five million on virgil van dyke. he's the chelsea goalkeeper he cost eighteen million euros and then of course pierre emerick obiang many people will be used to seeing him here in germany he cost over sixty million euros so you know budget plays a big part in all of this so look what does this mean the problem because if these these teams have such deep pockets to buy all the best this how can the smaller clubs be well this is one of the big issues now if we look at one team in particular they lost to arsenal but that is the third biggest city in spain it's a big team they bring in many crowds at week in week out and they have a far more modest budget so they're not able to lower those big players in with big salaries now there's an issue here because you're thinking ok are the richer clubs
1:23 pm
going to get richer the poor clubs or the more modest clubs going to become more modest well this is exactly what. i mean i got the i told outset so let's hear from him because it was interesting what he had to say quote get people any team in the premier league even those in the low part of the table can double bill and his budget or any of the team in the spanish league aside from real madrid barcelona and atlantic oh that's just how it is. almost there you go he said it himself. you know the big teams there have bigger clubs and it's going to be a bigger budgets and it's difficult for smaller clubs like bought into the afghans by you if i had to rejig european tournament's will this head cold kinda this one of them more than likely it'll hinder them and the idea is that the big clubs are going to be short of a place and it's going to be more difficult for smaller clubs actually to make it into the competition but once again this has not been this is not something that's going to happen yet and you wait for have actually said that it's very much in its
1:24 pm
infancy stages as have the big clubs who are reportedly in discussions with us about this so we have to be to see how that pans out. great to have you with me in the studio thanks. some but you go to tennis and germany's alexanders vivid ever has booked a space in the quarterfinals of the madrid open but he was made to suffer to get the world number four dropped the first set six three to polish counterparts. but he data back to take the next two sets six four six four have a real play greece's stephanos in the quarterfinals. and joining our lives on the set of in the last is it is five time madrid open with the spaniard to the sponsors american opponent france's t o four and beat him in straight sets six three sixteen adult who is yet to win a title this year will face this stand in the next round.
