is germany going to be ok if these don't, if the flow to resume? yes, i believe. oh, well, the outlook is positive for well 1st, the ground storage facilities in germany are by now about $82.00 or 83 percent fool, which is enough to support their consumption in the winter time. then we know that there is a program of energy saving and industrial consumers or gas in germany decreased their consumption of guess by about 20 percent against the average value in the july and august. it's going to the saving continues, and then in the winter, german is go into acquire, at least one of the 1st 2 terminals for imports of liquefied natural gas. and i believe, yes, so the outlook is positive. and other countries have already stopped receiving
12:20 pm
supplies from russia and think of denmark, the netherlands, bulgaria, russia, stop sending them gas. and it looks like gas probably is also going to stop sending gas to frances and g, g. think moscow's plan is ultimately to shut off supplies to the will together. it's some sort of a competition. first the, the european union. well, in view of the rest in the press or gas of black mail, even if you're going to call it. and then the russia is trying to show to europe the answer that's without threats. and guess europe is go into fries in the winter and it's the economy is going to collapse. i think that the, the european position is more well reliable. you can rely on the european union and the european countries to take all the necessary measures to support the industries and communities communal users and households during the winter

12:24 pm
i'm in the wall. the day we visit other home buyers come to meet lee as well. among them an elderly woman with 3 young girls. and so she's their grandmother, their parents are migrant workers and live far away in the south saving for the family. she looks after them here. ha, ha ha. she says she fears their home will never be finished and the girls won't have anywhere to live. one of the things that's really extraordinary here and really gives you a sense of a scale of the problem, is this whole road is lined with unfinished buildings, one after the other. as far as the i can see the homeowners here say there are thousands of people in tomorrow. dan, who bought on finished homes with nowhere else to go summer, even considering moving into these ramshackle buildings. but there are hundreds of thousands of others across china in similar situations who are simply refusing to keep up mortgage payments. that may be a problem on lots us honored by the rappers as also father,

father pans and also for the economy as well. patrick wong is a real estate analyst with bloomberg intelligence. he says, policy makers mainly to shake up the practice of buyers paying developers before completion. nearly 90 percent of all homes in china, our pre sold us in the parties. we really rely on the pizelle conscious haunted sales to funder porch at the wellburn or to fun. if under internal financial resources or buying the land, the crisis is power pressure on the government and stud social unrest. many people have expressed sympathy for victims likely or do their shantora donning up soon. hi, along. i just want everyone to be able to see that ordinary people are drowning in misery. la they are santa hudson. what other people have nowhere to voice their grievances through law york, who was jose, irma if left unresolved for many,
12:26 pm
the consequences could be crippling. morrison joined in the studio by our resident china, a, clifford cain and clifford. we heard the phrase that drowning in misery is a miserable time for the people that are in these apartments. have they got any hope of them ever being finished? looking at the situation and the crisis, the faces, the property sector in china at the moment, it's hard to see how they're going to find the money to pay for these apartments to be finished. at the value of the property marketers lost a trillion dollars in the last year, which is astonishing on the property market accounts for a 3rd of the whole economy. so you can see that this is a major, major problem that they're dealing with. so i think it's going to be very difficult for them to find a find a way around the current crisis that they're finding they're facing. the government's invading has been putting a lot of pressure on developers and on banks as well. but how much pressure is the company's party under itself, given what's happening and, and how people's lives are not improving in the way that they usually expect in china? well, if you look at these, these problems are all connected in
12:27 pm
a way you have the 20th party congress coming up in october 16th, which was announced yesterday the days at which the leader she jim ping will, will get an unprecedented 3rd term on in the me in the run up to that date, nothing is going to be allowed to happen. which means that efforts like by foreign bore bond holders to get their money back. i don't really think they're going to have much of a chance really, unless they decide to just pay them off to, to keep things calm. but everything has to be common to run up to this. at the same time, a lot of the lending that calls the crisis comes from local government and, and state banks. so it's all kind of connected it's, it's part part of one larger problem. and in order to resolve it, it's going to have to be addressed on many different fronts. and until this party, congress takes place until the party shows more willingness to enter has up till now to address the problem. i just don't see a resolution coming. you mentioned bondholders that she bondholders in every round of taking things into their own hands and propose their own restructuring. what was
12:28 pm
the situation with grants now? yeah, well i think ever grant is just looking at on the share side of things, the shares are worth nothing where everyone is expecting it to go bankrupt. it's got this restructuring is sort of a last ditch attempt, i think, to try and get some money out of it. but foreign investors, because of this complicated structure that we have, foreign investors are going to be way down the food chain when it comes to getting any money out of the situation. so they're going to really struggle, i think, to get their money. it's, it's, i'm again as a last ditch effort, but i think the priority is going to be given to domestic lenders unless they want to really show that they are trying to address the issue. and they do come to some kind of compromise with the foreign investors. so beyond the congress, when it comes up later this year, is there any hope of a resolution to the property in debt crisis? well, it's just so large that it's very hard to see where, where a solution is going to come from. because, you know, you've also got a slowing economy because of the 0 coven policy,
12:29 pm
which means is less leg room for our leeway to, to improve things. and so, so there's no real end in size given the economic fundamentals that they're facing right now. okay, terrific. in a resident, china want to thank you very much for staying across the story. of course, that's all from man, the business team here in berlin until next time ticket. ah, what's happening in she laid in it could soon become a more modern and progressive country. newly elected left as president gabrielle borage is planning major social reform. but pinochet's legacy cast
