8:06 am
policies we're expecting the united states president to arrive here in dining in less than half an hour so far on friday morning we saw the russian president vladimir putin arrive the canadian prime minister justin trudeau among others and then shortly after donald trump we are expecting his chinese counterpart xi jinping to also arrive in downing of course those two fresh from their bilateral meetings held over the last few days in the chinese capital beijing so as you mention much of the talk will be around trade and a contrast in approaches towards trade between the united states president and many other leaders here for apec including vietnam. more than fifty years ago united states marines came ashore in dun neighing and 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 learning a lot. when other countries. so that we can. push. our industry 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 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
8:08 am
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. it would be. just merging. things around the world. that us is losing out and cannot be brought back to us anymore but us can go into. the digital economy vietnam has been transformed since the war ended in one

thousand nine hundred eighty five the u.s. trade embargo was withdrawn free market fire has been lit there's no sign of it being extinguished because donald trump is expected to land in the next thirty minutes in vietnam weigh in and of course one of the much anticipated meetings people are talking about is a potential sit down between trump and putin is that likely to happen. yes well that is still very much one of the major topics of discussion here in downing whether or not that meeting will be held given the allegations of course of russian meddling in the united states presidential election and the recent developments surrounding those allegations a kremlin official says the meeting by the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson while he was in beijing with the u.s. president donald trump and he said that there would need to be substandard of
8:10 am
reasons for a meeting to take place in vietnam between putin and donald trump and cast doubt on whether they would be substantial reasons for those two to meet so still a lot of doubt about that obviously a lot of speculation what we do know is that we will hear from the u.s. president when he speaks in the coming hours to a meeting of a pig c.e.o.'s and that will also be something that the chinese president xi jinping will also do and there is another significant meeting later on friday between the remaining eleven. members the leaders of those countries and obviously there is a lot of speculation some hope in some quarters that they will come to some agreement regarding the transpacific partnership well for the moment where we'll leave it to catch up with you as the day progresses and as we to start to talk to each other thank you. well donald trump is jew in the philippines on the day but his visit isn't being welcomed by everyone hundreds of protesting on the streets of the

8:12 am
really a manmade situation there the announcement that the ports were being closed down or limited in terms of some of the supplies is an area that's of concern to us because the yemeni people are not the ones at fault for their situation we would like to see food aid medical equipment and all of that be able to brought be brought in to the ports saudi arabia has stepped up a land and sea blockade on yemen after a ballistic missile was hard towards the capital riyadh on saturday. before the blockade more than twenty million people with that save a two thirds of the population needed humanitarian assistance now nearly half were like completely on food aid to survive. the country is experiencing a cholera epidemic which is expected to affect one million people by the end of the year aid agencies say they're struggling to work inside the country it takes from one town to another we have to almost go through one hundred checkpoints this is
8:13 am
a manmade disaster and there is no humanitarian solution to this we're asking for parties to come together and to find a solution desperate which is desperately needed for the people of yemen it's becoming increasingly difficult for people to get their hands on vital commodities with prices of petrol cooking oil rising by as much as fifty percent in a week. and so far as closing down the ports and borders these are war crimes in the first degree the longer yemen sit empty the longer the suffering will continue . well still ahead here on al-jazeera ordering robert mugabe is about ways government spends millions on a controversial move to rename the capital's apples on the country's deep into debt . and we look at the ongoing struggle of a group of hong kong villagers to ward off hungry property developers straight after the plague.
