led to falling demand for the british currency and a slide in the value of the pound. that's made imports more expensive many shoppers are likely to see prices rise soon for imported products. a report released monday even says there is a chance the u.k. you come to me is already in a recession now if britain does leave the e.u. and freedom of movement from migrant workers vital for the economy there's a real danger that the u.k. might be short on those workers very soon well done many jobs like picking fruit in scotland farms a benefit hugely from seasonal labor. picture perfect scotland. the the highlands famous for their breathtaking landscapes the castles and lakes. the workers on the strawberry plantations over don't get to see this side of scotland almost all of them came here from eastern europe. here and around 300

know how even begin to do our work but also some regional politicians have a different view the regs that supporters would rather send unemployed scots to work in the fields. to do. when i was a boy. i worked on the farms. when i was at school. we. got were the foreign people coming across the gash to. coming across the. people of the opportunity. locals however wouldn't want to live in nice containers on the farm and be woken at 5 am to start picking seasonal workers mitri alongside his colleagues dmitri works for the minimum wage often for 10 to 12
hours a day. we had some grace yeah that became. due to this and they left because of the hard job me too would like to stay in scotland permanently instead of just during the harvest season and he'd like to see more of scotland than just the strawberry fields his dream is to visit the scottish highlands someday but briggs it could stop that ever happening. china's e-commerce giant. allowing u.s. companies to sell on its platform opening up markets especially for small american business is in contrie served by like india and china the company's move to open up its to the marketplace to u.s. manufacturers distributors and wholesalers is part of its larger effort to expand into its international market share taking on amazon's own b. to be my. place amazon business in the process.
our financial correspondent yan's court joins us now from was street yes so ali baba taking on amazon going head to head with amazon what chance does on about the have here. well i mean overall ali baba already has some experience in the u.s. and the market to be so business to business market is huge it's estimated to serve this year a trillion dollars so there was quite some potential and if i understand correctly ali baba's going a bit of a different way than amazon specially small american companies are going to keep the customer relationships and also the data so that is something that has not been offering that easy in the past so yes there is a certain chance for ali baba to get a piece of this is
a huge market. some new opportunities there then but timing is obviously clearly an issue what impact would the u.s. china trade war have on ali baba's plans to push further into the u.s. . timing certainly could be better in regards to the trade tensions between china and chinese companies and the u.s. on the other side of the standing of amazon there with the current administration and washington also could be better by the way just off to ours we got the word that the department of justice is actually starting. to trust their review of us american corporations so who knows maybe washington is open to more competition to some of those tech giants here in the u.s. very interesting in there on wall street for us thank you very much. and staying with the u.s. china trade war bloomberg is reporting that trade officials from both sides will

around 200000 visitors and really but the island will be closed to the public for one year from the start of 2020 authorities are confident in the move. this is for conservation to return the komodo dragons habitats to what it was that's our goal that we do and that he can order national park will not be closed but the closure is limited to the komodo island that there are still many other beautiful islands out there in the national park by. some get into tourists could face premium prices to visit the island upon its reopening that they were told by the resort that. we will try to close for one year if the food stock of komodo is sufficient and the dragons are active again we will reopen to the public of course viewing the komodo dragons should not be cheaper as they are the only species of their kind on the planet you know what it. is the
conservation program will hopefully boost the island's long term tourist prospects keeping the number of both the komodo and visitors to the island high. and that's it from me and the d w business here and berlin for more business features check out the. w dot com slash business or follow us on social media i'm jane el-gamal and thank you so much for watching.
