businesses, a warning of the severe impact of shanghai is prolonged, locked down. car makers say they may have to hope production with their suppliers in the city. unable to produce pause, vast cities 25000000 residents have been kept mostly at home for weeks. now, as the chinese government maintains its circles, 0 covey approach to pandemic restrictions. shipping giants are also warning that the shanghai lockdown a snarled up. the world's busiest container port. let's get more on this from our resident china washer cliff occurred in clifford, thanks for joining us in the studio and just tell us what impact is there a covered policy is already having and is going to inevitably have on supply chain . we're going to have a major impact on what we're seeing now is that there's a lot of goods that are just stuck in china. they can't get out. i mean, if you want to get your goods to export them safe from the port, new shanghai, you can't get mad because you can't even get the drivers to come and bring your goods to the ports. so it's
3:18 am
a huge logistical issue at the moment that they're facing. and some analysts are saying that it could cause the logistics now that would make them be even worse than last year and the year before. so it could be very serious indeed. wow. even worse than what we've experienced in vascular vehicles, the knock on effects of that have been extreme and the space all of this together, it could that have a potential impact on how much people want to trade with china and how they want to involve china in their supply chain. yeah, i think i think people are thinking anew about how they are sourcing products. i think as a combination of covered under, also the coven, 0 coven policy. and also the, the war and ukraine on the way china has kind of tacitly supported. that means that people are suddenly exposed to geopolitical risks that they, that they weren't a year ago. and i think people now are looking at even companies that have big, big interests in china like v w, which is still very much commission to china. and it's, it's building a lot of m e vehicle plants there and batteries, plants there. but it's also boosting it's spending in the u. s. for example. so i
3:19 am
think the sort of knock on effect from these is quite serious. you know, we're seeing a spreading into, into other areas beyond china. what about the knock on effect for chinese economic growth? because sooner this is good to have some sort of impact on with this. you know, it never ending growth that will come so used to i think so too. i mean growth is slowing. i mean, we spoken many times about the property market, for example, in china, which is in trouble with ever grounds the, the fact that is so heavily indebted, but you also have the power prices have stalled for the last 2 months, which means that there's no relief coming from the property sector and you're talking about 87 of china's largest 100 cities are affected by the 0 over lockdown . so it has to have an impact. the areas that are under locked down for 40 percent of g d p. so as yes, the government is looking at 5 and a half percent growth this year. maybe they'll meet up because some areas are proving surprising the resilient. but at the same time,
3:20 am
shops are closed in shanghai, you know, the only stuff that's being, that's getting out of stuff that's being delivered. and we see like air traffic is down 70 percent on, on a year ago. so there's a lot of these areas, the economy that have been very vital towards recovery in china that are suddenly again in trouble. i find interesting is we are hearing from chinese companies and we hear from hallway and we're hearing from comic is saying that you know, that this is eric of it is putting pressure on them is quite unusual to hear any organization within china speaking out like that is this sort of pressure going to be enough to change the policy? i think so, i mean there are some signs and we've had the government that is going to work with 666 companies to help them get through this. but it's basically where the political and economic are quite separate as you know, as always in china. and, but it could be that the pressure, if there's a threat to stability, they will have to intervene in some way. so we have to see now what, what they will do in terms of sticking to this 0 coven policy,
3:21 am
or whether they allow economic interests to come 1st. ok if it can, and thanks for staying across a force. now india is recent purchases of russian gas have caused friction with the g 7 nations leading sanctions against moscow. delhi has thus far struck a defiant tone against warnings from the u. s. for example, but how sustainable is its position? india has maintained close relations with russia for decades. the asian countries, not just a key customer for russian consumer goods, but weapons are also high up on the list of imports, especially our craft tanks and frigates, 60 percent off in the us arms and ports come from russia. india hasn't sanctioned russia over the war and ukraine. quite the opposite. at the end of march, new delhi seized the opportunity to buy a russian oil edit deep discount. and as considering further orders to spite calls

prices have been going up significantly. there have been at least 13 odd price hikes so far. the prices offer of vehicle fuel have gone up and petrol and diesel as well as c n g. and these always tend to have a desk aiding effect on the economy because of the, because of the transportation cost that is involved in transporting goods from one part of the country to another. so often these lead and as they are leading right now to a rise in prices of other commodities as well and especially food. so that always becomes a pressure point for, for the government, because then eventually it. but when it, when it comes to sort of a boiling point and pressures, then protest, begin. so far. widespread protests have not been seen on the streets of the country so far, but then the opposition parties, they are riled and they've, and they have they,

3:26 am
this is only possible if it doesn't lead to a shortage of gasoline or diesel in brazil itself. it's important to remember that internal demand has to be met. first pop up is the robbery. more to produce a deposit damage? further south in argentina, why the world's 2nd largest shale gas deposits production by fracking could theoretically be doubled to replace russian gas. but that's not possible at present because argentina isn't prepared for the volume. really, molly, i'm good at them in the jan tina's problem today is the lack of infrastructure to transport and export crude oil and gas. for example. and there are no pipelines to bring the gas from the fields in the provinces to the port akina engine. tina hasn't invested in the necessary infrastructure with the country can hardly step in to compensate for oil and gas from russia, at least for the time being. oh,
