2:18 pm
persecuting shin jags muslim minority weak population, their internment camps, force labor programs, and intense surveillance. more than a 1000000 week, as i believed to have been detained. however, for firms trying to pull out of the region, things can get tricky. u. s chip maker intel issued an apology last week after edging it supplies to avoid sourcing goods from sion. jang, the announcement to caused an uproar in china. meanwhile, the upcoming winter olympics in beijing are putting pressure on businesses from another angle. western human rights groups have criticized the american firms that are sponsoring events. these include the likes of air b and b, coca cola and general electric. so let's discuss the challenges facing china on the international stage as we enter into 2022 with our resident china, water, cliff at korean. so that's how things are playing up, particularly of a shin jang, between the u. s. and china. but what about europe? and china, well, it's interesting, rob, i mean,
2:19 pm
a lot of things seem to be coming together right now. i mean, a lot of different factors that have been going on actually for years. i mean, we've known about a lot of these issues for a long time, and these companies have known about these issues for a long time. and when you think about how it works with the factory or with it, with a company like say, intel, you know, they've got 6, maybe 6 more. who knows how many levels of supply chain going on am. and clearly they have made preparations for the fact that this, this legislation is coming, coming in. and so now you have this in the us and then now we're dealing with europe with companies like volkswagen continent tal siemens. all of them have recently come out with state, they've come out with statements saying that it's not about the supply chain. they're, they're trying to sort of keep out of the issue. so it's, it's, it's clearly going to be a major factor for european companies. so pressure from european companies and u. s. companies, it's china starting to look else where it's focused on trade. well, a lot of this,
2:20 pm
i think china still really wants the technology that european companies can offer, particularly on the, on the industry side, on, on the u. s side is much more of the tech side, you know, there's another, there's another debate we could have about how you're being companies. i haven't just are not at the races when it comes to tech. but and yeah, i think, i think there they still need this tech so, and they also, but another thing we should keep in mind is that they have rules as well. that companies in china cannot use the m there. they're not allowed to take goods from companies that follow sanctions. so it's a really, it's a really problematic issue. it's kind of a double bind for european companies. we've been saying, i mean, people love china. alice have been saying this for years that this is coming. you know that eventually you're gonna have to make a decision about this. and, and it seems that they haven't really done the due diligence. so this decision might come during the course of 2022 by mid. how, if you can get your crystal ball out and predict this for is how is his
2:21 pm
relationship with the well going to change over the next 12 months? well, this is, you know, obviously looking at my crystal ball and there's no sign that china has any interest in backing down on this. you know, i mean european company thing, any dialogue with china, but i'm dialogue with china. why we're trying to be interested in dialogue. it's got all the money, you know, it doesn't need us, you know, and a lot of european companies, particularly in time, a pandemic, are very reliant on goods on imports from, from china. and they needed for the supply chain countries like vietnam and indonesia, where they hoped to maybe off shore to move their supply chain there. you know, they just don't have the infrastructure. so it's a real problem. so i think china is going to, there's no reason for china to say in any way that it needs to, to stop doing, you know, to, to change its position. so i think we're going to have some real, it's going to be a political and an economic row. so it's basically the situation that china's relationship with the rest of the world is kind of whatever china wants it to be.
2:22 pm
it is, and i think that's, that's basically, i don't know how if people have kind of realize that this is happening, you know, in a way that, that's what we're seeing now that china is just saying you can say what you want about change young, but we don't consider in general problem and it's up to you to deal with it. so i think the pressure is going to come back politically. it's going to be a political story, and i think that's, that's where we're going to be this year. ok. so if it came in thanksgiving and on it for us during 2021, and i'm sure you will continue to join 2022 as well. staying with china and cities like hong kong, shanghai, and shen gen have some of the most expensive real estate markets in the world. was residential prices. sometimes dozens of times higher than the average household income. and rising beijing is fighting and expanding property bubble above beijing's glittering facades shine proud symbols of the chinese economic miracle. the people who clean them, though the in the basements of those buildings,

now the chinese government is starting to step in and take control of the sector next, it's now a year since breck sits, took full effect, and the u. k. left the ease cinco market and customers union that came with predictions of disaster for the british economy. but 12 months later. how has the country coped in december last year as britain ready to itself for a hard, greg, that prime minister boris johnson addressed parliament in his typically confident style. have absolutely no da, but from january the 1st, this country is going to prosper monterey this year. but the reality is, the country's woes began almost immediately. britain's chemicals, electrical equipment, machinery, metals, minerals, and textile sectors became hopelessly entangled in the trade deals, so called roles of origin. any goods arriving in bra and from abroad,
2:26 pm
and then exported into the e. u. incur accustomed levy and britain supply chains rely on a vast number of parts source from outside the european union. thousands of trucks trying to exit the u. k. were tied up in the red tape is not good at this situation as it is for me and too much paper walks too much way, way all the time is late. this is not not good. then in september the u. k. is petrol palms ran dry fuel deliveries from the e. u stalled. and a shortfall of european drivers who had left britain contributed to the perfect storm. the results, national shortages of foodstuffs and other retail products. independent economists expect the u. k. 's gross domestic product to drop by 4 percent as a result of reg, in the coming years. exports have already fallen. where as e u countries are actually expanded their exports to the rest of the world,
2:27 pm
the u. k. has not, we've been performing very badly. and so in that sense, at least so far at least break it has, has clearly failed to deliver. so far, the british government has not been able to deliver its brags at par man. that's why some whole show 60 percent and britain's believe rags, it has done more harm than good. well, let's get more on this from our reporter daniel went to hi daniel. you k. there does seem as face a lot of challenges over the last 12 months. but how does that compare with all the predictions? well, rog, as you probably remember, boris johnson promised, sunlit auckland's when it came to breaks it. but now it seems that britain is facing more of a winter of discontent. now i tried to find what the positives were, the upsides were in this whole post breakfast, it error, but it seems, there are some, you know, some of the most dire predictions didn't come true. the pound took a bit of a beating at 1st, but then recovered afterwards. and the city of london is not currently
2:28 pm
a shadow of its former self. and all of the issues that britain has faced are merely teething problems. the prime minister would say, however, it's not possible to escape the reality that britain is not yet, and has no visible prospects of becoming a singapore on the eastern atlantic, which was partly the vision. i mean, we've seen that and imports and exports have been a huge headache for our businesses dealing with britain or from britain with imports and exports dropping about 16 percent. and it's even worse for services though with the u. k. trade policy observatory saying that imports and exports and services to the you have dropped 37 percent. so one saving grace for johnson is that colbert has obscured the full impact of bricks. it, but it seems that britons hadn't got what they were promised. yeah. okay, daniel winter, thank you very much. i'm just finally a you stocking up for the new year. there may be many things already on your
