and see as you first met with the business friendly f.t.p. party and later with the environmentalist greens the jamaica coalition would be an exotic combination that has never existed before at the national level. as the talks were reasonable there was no tension but we all know how hard it will be and how different our political cultures are equal to and here to some and the c.d.u. and c s u's prospective partners have major differences over a number of key issues including the european union and austerity policy migration and energy. this could become the most complex series of negotiations in decades. before the talks were shaped with the intention of looking for solutions about how to reach a cohesive society but it is also clear that there is a long way ahead of us. this vegas the munging was on friday the

a rest and state i was lucky to have realized that just basic human rights such as freedom of speech exemplary in europe and while over. understandably the or the a few minutes of this great nation i clearly due to hard work and sacrifice. however in my observation and experience the question of social progress we're all especially in regards to much less groups such as immigrants remains largely unsolved. integration is not as successful as outwardly does anyone ever wonder why even educated immigrants find it so difficult to continue with their career even after top rating well as a journalist with immigrant by brown i feel so disappointed that i still can't find a job as a journalist. in my experience it's in the best interest of migrants to rebuild

3:42 pm

on regional government for the exodus but he says it's not yet too late to turn things around. less if the politics that have caused these companies to leave are changed and if the regional government does everything in its power to prevent further damage the companies that have left kabul lonia will return. the firms pulling out site turnover as their main reason for departure with spain their most important market they fear a catalan declaration of independence could lead to the country boycotting catalan products independence for catalonia could have a detrimental effect on the ailing spanish economy to catalonia is the industrial heartland of spain the region generates a fifth of the country's economic output. chinese economic growth slowed marginally in the third quarter six point eight percent isn't all that bad slightly down from
3:44 pm
the previous quarters but on target for the year as a whole despite that indicating stability the national statistics agency was of volatility it says the economy is at a crucial stage of restructuring and china's central bank is warning about a sudden collapse in asset prices after so much growth. maybe opening the economy could help that's all the talk at this week's communist party congress but critics say they've heard that before. it's a project that typifies the extent and speed of china's growth in just two years time this building site in beijing will highlight what could be the world's largest airports at twelve billion dollar investment that comes as chinese president xi jinping hailed a new economic era it's all about looking outward. if you will push forward a new situation of complete openness openness brings progress closing yourself off
3:45 pm
will inevitably lead to falling behind china's open door will never close it will only be opened further. but critics say the door is far from open many foreign companies complained about the difficulty of accessing the chinese markets and accuse the government of failing to implement necessary reforms. one big issue the government is trying to tackle however is soaring desks the sum total of what china owes is now valued at two hundred forty six percent of its g.d.p. that sparked fears of a financial collapse for the world's second largest economy the true cost of debt fuelled growth has yet to be revealed let's analyze this with the european perspective from frankfurt conrad joins us now financial correspondent how justified are the fears of financial collapse remembering of course. it would be an even more worrying situation if china were the world's top economy which it could
3:46 pm
be. well economists find a lot of reasons why those fears should not be exaggerated we're talking mostly about domestic debt the chinese are great savers so the fundamentals of the economy look quite resist quite resistant and resilient and there are a few more reasons ben but i know this is a platitude but the markets are driven by psychology and it's very difficult to read and predict the undercurrents of the common mind of investors remember how last year at the beginning of twenty sixteen the markets the i could see markets in china slumped and everyone in the world became nervous because of that so i guess it's really worth taking a very close look at what's going on in beijing well investors the moment are taking a very close look at what's going on in beijing could you describe what's going on
3:47 pm
as being akin to perform. well. the talk about reform in beijing of course like everything coming out of china should be taken with a great grain of salt everyone knows that the president of china talks about a more open economy the reality in business looks quite different that's the same with the growth numbers coming out of china china has a long story of history of doctoring its economic data but the mere fact that for example this that more or less comes in line with what had been predicted by the government in beijing is reassuring for markets and we have to live with that i guess who come on let's have a listen into one investor he's based in beijing and had some very interesting things to say about as far as access goes for foreign firms in china.
3:48 pm
well we've heard these these talks and i think all those who are holding the speeches especially the governor of the central bank are probably convinced that that's the way to go but what we see on the ground is that reform state owned enterprise reform is not happening actually at the contrary we're creating more and more gigantic monopolies like you can see in a railway or in shipping. there is increased pressure to repatriate date therefore foreign companies in order to have them all in china you have issues about the car market where you have non protection i mean you have more or less protectionist measures were going to be implemented so all this is very worrying and the mood of our foreign businesses has turned from eldorado to a more much more complicated situation so conrad are we going to be left with
3:49 pm
a much more complicated global financial structure if china's in control. that was tough talk from the man on the ground in beijing and i guess that we should rather see corporation with the chinese of course nobody wants to china to be in control nobody wants a state like george orwell's one thousand nine hundred eighty four governing the rest of the word but what choice do we have we have to see corporation and talk carbo's in there in frankfurt thank you very much but one thing we can say for sure is that there's a lot more wealth in china it now tops the list of global billionaires with six hundred.
