taken over the streets of hong kong over an extradition bell. the ensuing backlash from the hong kong government has been dramatic and at times brutal. last year hong kong was one of the world's most visited cities with tourist numbers of more than 30000000 as of july this year visitor numbers that only fallen by 5 percent but according to hong kong's financial secretary paul chan the fell by a massive 40 percent in august. authorities say that's thanks to the protests taking place the transport hubs including the airport where passengers have been subjected to increased checks delays and cancellations if there's a ring trend that destructive hours have extended to different transport hubs including the hong kong international airport. the airport is that key infrastructure that we always took pride in. some economists believe hong kong will

be in recession before the end of the year given the impact the current situation has had on tourism and the wider economy. now here's a surprise german exports rebounded unexpectedly in july europe's economic powerhouse has been hit by the us china trade war and uncertainty over brics that but new figures show exports rose 5.7 percent month on month almost 4 percent compared with the same period last year imports however fell further than expected and the statistics office says that underlines concerns the economy has lost momentum and economists expect germany to fall into recession later this year. or more and that's let's bring in conrad who is now a man in france. and the good news 1st german expos rose in july but almost 4 percent compared to the same months last year why then are we still talking about a looming recession because monika most of the other data which has
