taking national security as an excuse frequently abuses national power and unreasonably suppresses companies of other countries this is an outright hegemonic act china is firmly opposed to it the controversy centers around this company by dance based in beijing it owns numerous apps including tech talk and residents in beijing were not happy about the american moves. because i don't agree with this move from the u.s. it restricts the free business growth of tech talk but it also affects those american youth who like tech talk so much. that it will be with me what i don't want to use american products anymore and i will support the chinese alternatives and economic self-reliance that wouldn't be that way that. recently u.s. software company microsoft expressed interest in buying tick tock from byte dance the white house says if a u.s. company bought that up the ban could be avoided the u.s.

government's executive order also focuses on 10 cent holdings the chinese owner of we chat hugely popular in china the messaging and social media could soon be banned in the united states as well. of to see a market analyst at a wanted craig craig what have been the significance of the u.s. banning we chat well i think it would be significant not necessarily on u.s. consumers because they are still quite limited in number but what the broader ramifications really would be the action at stake and it's not entirely clear but if it if extends for example politico you wouldn't be allowed to download it on an i phone because apple's an american company all on and would be hiv has a similar reasons and all of a sudden the ramifications become far more severe also i think it's worth noting that any action taken by the u.s. is going to have a response from china so you get you looking at the u.s.

tax base and say which u.s. tech companies are in china which u.s. tycoon reason trying to gain greater exposure in china because these are the ones that you will smugly going to be targeting this is from the chinese perspective going to be seen as an attack on chinese tech companies who want to expand globally and compete with the u.s. so we can expect that it's not going to be taken lightly craig let's talk about the chinese perspective because the chinese foreign ministry accuses the us of suppressing foreign companies that's exactly how big you know rates. it is. it's one of these really difficult savvis 'd the yukon that's certainly argue with the point on data privacy it's become such a hot topic look just here in the in the e.u. now over the last few years the g.d.p. everyone has become obsessed with dates and what's what's happening with the data and what it's been used for so it's hard to necessarily disagree on the outside if
8:21 pm

8:22 pm
considering it's very uncertain times and considering it's now entered this news new phase and during the digital sphere. well the biggest factor in sense of the trade war comes and those present donald trump that realize that if it wasn't done perhaps this. joe biden would act very differently with respect to china even though he has been backed into a corner and forced to adopt a slightly on the john of authority himself as well if he does get reelected then we will truly whether this is just a political campaign or what there is something more to it we use technology for technology transfers etc is a key part of the trade talks so i suggest that we could have many more years of the standoff between the world 2 superpowers curriculum thank you very much. and just to point out how far reaching this story is south africa's main stock index abruptly ended a 4 day rally today and because index heavyweight naspers plunged following trump's

a continuing ban on the scent of al called that's affecting breweries it's all sort of fitting glass manufacturers they're continuing ban on the sale of cigarettes and there's an ongoing cold case about that so secret companies are now saying we can't invest in this economy and of course others in the economy also looking at this and saying our trust is fundamentally broken here the future does not look right we know that consumer spending is going to be low but on top of all of this our relationship with the government has been severely dented by this and that in and of itself is causing the pulling back of the basement to make create a brighter future what south africa got to do to get out of this economic crisis. well we know it's going to be bad i mean the wisc ace in our nose at the moment is talking about something like 50 percent unemployment and those are the official projections coming from the government so the government has really said that this is an emergency situation and they've called on south africans to take everyday
