7:06 am
wage financial an economic war in qatar through bond and debt manipulation has reportedly been found on his computer according to the website the intercept they would then take these these bonds according to the plan and swap them back and forth among parties who from the outside look like they're independent but are actually the same people as like me and you're trading a bond back and forth and that creates an illusion of volatility and with people aware that there is this political crisis going on then they plan as they see this enhanced volatility and traders start to panic and say oh my god something must be going on here we need to sell our own our own can tare debt which drives the price down further the outline for the plan was allegedly drawn up by the private bank havilland although it's based in luxembourg it's owned by a british banking family with close ties to the u.a.e. the ultimate goal create a crisis which would force the qataris to step in to support their currency
7:07 am
draining the country's cash reserves through these leaks the narrative in washington has changed from what was considered primarily to be. a response of qatari foreign policy to now a manufactured crisis by the other party to the conflict the u.a.e. and saudi arabia lead a group of mainly gulf nations which have imposed a partial blockade and cut off diplomatic relations to qatar international efforts to broker a settlement have come to nothing the scheme to interfere with the debt and bond market was always unlikely to succeed there are just too many variables to know it's been made public the financial markets will be watching more closely for any attempt at manipulation alan fischer washington. u.s. president donald trump is on his way to vietnam for meetings set to be dominated by trade in the asia pacific region more than half of a pick members are trying to sign the deal that trump has withdrawn from the u.s.
7:08 am
and china is also pushing for reform to compete in that trading bloc in the region a contrast to trump's own pursuit of bilateral deals where they do it from denying in vietnam of course he's pulled out of the trans-pacific partnership he wants sees bilateral trade agreements if possible is it likely that he'll get what he wants well i think it's going to be a very interesting dynamic over the next couple of days to see how in fact the u.s. president handles the meetings given as you say he has pulled out of the trans-pacific partnership he clearly is in favor of bilateral deals rather than multilateral ones and it seems that that is in stark contrast to what most of the other apec member nations are trying to achieve including the host vietnam. more than fifty years ago united states marines came ashore in dun neighing and
7:09 am
waded into the vietnam war it was a disastrous failed campaign in the name of defeating communism today the red flag still flies in vietnam but the government embraces capitalism. among the reforms that have taken place is the privatization of many bloated state owned companies this shrimp processing factory was sold to private owners in one thousand nine hundred seventy and now employs three thousand people and sends its products around the world in running a lot other countries. when other countries. so that they can. force. us trade with one of the world's fastest growing economies vietnam is being held up as an example of what open trade can do . but as host of the asia pacific economic cooperation summit is at the center of a new struggle between the united states and china which are both vying for
7:10 am
influence in asia the respective presidents coming to apec have a contrast in views on the best way for countries to do business with one another. she jinping is a globalist and is backing the proposed trade deal known as the regional comprehensive economic partnership involving sixteen countries donald trump is seen as a protectionist and prefers bilateral deals instead of multilateral ones like the trans-pacific partnership that he withdrew from the remaining eleven countries including vietnam are forging ahead when the d.p.p. was signed last year vietnam was touted as one of the big winners from the deal because of its strong export led economy even though the united states has pulled out the vietnamese government still wanted to go ahead and is pushing for a new agreement to be reached this week some experts believe the summit will provide an opportunity for a pic members to try to convince donald trump. to think differently about trade you look at it would be. not just merchandise. things around the world i phone i

pads and all this sort of thing that us is losing out and cannot be brought back to us anymore but us can go into this so-called. digital economy vietnam has been transformed since the war ended in one thousand nine hundred eighty five the u.s. trade embargo was withdrawn the free market fire has been lit there's no sign of it being extinguished or try to one side away in another issue that certainly on the agenda be it on the sidelines of this meeting is me in mind its treatment of the or its leader is actually in denying. yes that's right. the state council of me in my arrived in the city of downing on thursday myanmar is not a member of a peg but of course she will be involved in many meetings on the sidelines and the issue of human rights the issue of the plight of the remaining in rakhine state in
7:12 am
myanmar will be brought up in particular in a meeting that she is expected to have with the canadian prime minister justin trudeau who arrived in downing about thirty minutes ago and he has been a very vocal critic of what is happening in myanmar what is happening to the reading yet and the air he has in the last few weeks called on aung san suu kyi to publicly condemn what is going on in those villages in rakhine state something of course she has not done so far but as far as any significant public statements apart from those sideline meetings behind closed doors i think there's unlikely to be any significant announcement regarding human human rights in general it will be discussed of course but the main priority as you mentioned is on business is on trade and there is the possibility that despite the united states withdrawing from the transpacific partnership that those remaining eleven nations will come to some sort of agreement over the next two days indeed and we are looking forward to some

a revolution in food but in these vast greenhouses things are happening that could change lives half a world away usually it takes huge amounts of water to grow tomatoes but here they reduce it to virtually nothing and they even grow the fruit in insulation material rather than soil we use only rainwater and recycle forth and you can do this with any vegetable. you can. it can be a solution that to to bring feet food into other places in the world where there's a problem that. the tiny netherlands is already the world's largest exporter of tomatoes this though has now. not for western supermarkets but for the world's hungry what they're onto here is regarded as really exciting because if you can grow vegetables with no soil and with almost no water then you can grow them anywhere you can grow them in the deserts or where there's been drought and so

western politicians is that climate change is an integra parts of the refugee crisis and offering solutions has benefits everywhere if we don't solve the problems over there then people will migrate to other places and they will look for food in europe and we know that again and migration is a great problem so in my opinion we need to improve the situation in africa. and. improve their livelihoods of people in africa there's often a feeling that trying to help the world's hungry is pointless and the problems will never end but here there is proof that even climate change. can be beaten by science for the politicians of the rich countries it is becoming possible to effect incredible change if they really want to lawrence lee al jazeera in the netherlands . you want your under their arms the whole rom and these are our top stories joint
