just that's not german entrepreneur award winner two thousand and fifteen as he travels through asia looking for the next big business idea. our ten part series founders valley starting october twenty third on d w. this is dave there live from berlin a your latest put a positive spin on bragg said talks britain's theresa may says the two sides are within touching distance of a deal while germany's i'm going to makeover speaks of encouraging signs of progress but says talks cannot move forward until the divorce bill is
6:01 pm
a great we'll bring you the latest from brussels also on the program. germany's chancellor has some tough talking to do at home as well as i'm going to back hold against the first full round of talks on forming a government with a coalition that has never been tried i thought a national level. uganda office lessons in how to respond to a refugee crisis we look at the countries welcome for more than a million new arrivals even as it faces widespread hunger. i'm phil gayle welcome to the program. leaders from britain you were still divided over breakfast at a meeting today in brussels broke up with the two sides still struggling with the terms of the divorce german chancellor angela merkel raised hopes that talks might be able to move on the next summit in december but that progress would depend on
6:02 pm
britain settling its financial obligations we'll hear from brussels in just a moment first this report to reason may did her best to keep up appearances in brussels but she offered few new answers to the many questions that remain about bragg's us how much is london willing to pay to settle its divorce bill and when it remains a mystery here. the full and final settlement will come as part of the final agreement that we're getting in relation to the future partnership and i think that's absolutely right finances are the main sticking point between britain and the e.u. university and the four bread none still has to make a significant financial effort at the moment we are far off a figure that takes a long term financial commitment into account. i hope is that we'll have come far enough by december that we'll be able to move on to the next phase of negotiations but it's up to britain to make that possible. though friday's morning meeting did
6:03 pm
little to sweeten the relationship between britain and the e.u. not all was lost. not sufficient it doesn't mean there is no progress at all. prime minister may offered a much needed olive branch pledging to protect you citizens in britain after the break that process is completed the u.k. and the e.u. share the same objective of safeguarding the rights of e.u. nationals living in the u.k. and u.k. nationals living in the e.u. . citizens have made a huge contribution to our country and let me be clear that whatever happens we want them and their families to stay no one has expected a breakthrough but friday summers is unlikely to leave either side feeling satisfied. to brussels where we find it d w bureau chief max hoffman not welcome your opinion leaders seem to have been mindful of trains and maids political problems back at home have they given enough
6:04 pm
to go back claiming a victory i think you put it exactly the right way phil mindful of it but they didn't give her everything a victory for theresa may would have been to come back from this summit saying ok we can start phase two of the negotiations the important part for the u.k. about a trade deal with the european union that has not happened but there is a lifeline and we understand from our sources if there is a little progress in the negotiations that the e.u. leaders will be willing in december when they have their next summit to give it a go. now german chancellor angela merkel price teresa mayes that willingness to move forward while criticizing britain for being too hesitant what we make of her comments. what's happening here is that the e.u. so far was very rigid settling the divorce issues first the divorce issues being the border between northern ireland and ireland the status of you citizens in the
6:05 pm
u.k. and also the braggs it bill they have opened up a little bit because they have noticed that the recent may is under too much pressure at home because whatever you do here in brussels you have to be able to sell it not only in the e.u. twenty seven so without the u.k. but also in the u.k. they have understood that they're giving her a little more leeway while officially still insisting on those principles i wife from the president of the european council donald toast presented a so-called leaders agenda to discuss the forms proposed by france's president ma crawl all those reforms real solutions. what you have at the moment is you have a very enthusiastic french president with a lot of energy making a lot of proposition suggestions all over the place and i think there's two fold here what dawn of the president of the e.u. council is trying to do is giving all those visions of that energy a little structure sort of channeling what the call is proposing and at the same time not only channeling it but preserving the ambition that is behind it because
6:06 pm
that you have to think about it you know if you still have twenty eight member states that might not agree with everything that a minute michael is saying that's one problem the other problem is that often in the past leaders decided something on the summits but it never happened it never followed through they want to change that wants to change that by setting out a new agenda giving it more pace and really trying to settle also the issues that were contentious in the past that's often in brussels thank you. german chancellor angela merkel has a big job on her hands domestically ashley grapples with the task of forming an unprecedented multi-party national governing coalition fifty politicians from her conservatives as well as the business from the f.t. they are the greens amazing to find out if they can cooperate on topics ranging from the european union to finances to foreign policy the differences are significant but so is the pressure on them to succeed according to one current poll
6:07 pm
eighty three percent of germans expect this multi-party coalition to happen. political correspondent thomas aspera has been monitoring those discussions welcome thomas so they have differences the political differences between these three parties are significant how can they be overcome well work is the key word there phil we know already for example that they have five more sessions planned between here and november only to discuss all those differences that you mentioned there will be working groups there will be plenty of meetings here in the german parliament as well to try and see if they can find any common ground because the differences between the political parties here involve very big if you judge for example between the c.s.u. that's the very and sister party of angela merkel's c.d.u. which stands rather on the right part of the political spectrum of the greens which
6:08 pm
sign on the left part of the political spectrum you have to somehow bridge those differences and the way in which they're trying to bridge those differences is like trying to discuss a wide range of issues in fact there are twelve issues on the agenda and that's also the reason why these talks will take so long they already be saying here that they could take until christmas before a coalition agreement is reached one world in particular a contentious issue is how to deal with the million plus refugees that have come to germany or walk away expect. well a lot of different opinions as a start and and here is where you can really see how how different the parties are on the one hand you have that agreement of the conservative bloc to try and have a goal to cap the number of refugees arriving to the country that's something that the greens have already said don't count us in if that's your plan there's another aspect as well the aspect of family reunification which divides the parties that
6:09 pm
are meeting here right behind me so those are issues that will probably take a long time but we also know already that those are the issues that they want to deal with the most difficult issues first and then try and find some of the issues where they can try and find more easily some common ground and there are also issues where they can find common ground digitalisation for example is one of them and while i'm going to merkel is working on those rather important domestic arrangements how does germany fulfill its king leadership role in europe. while there is still a working government and that's something that we have to remember obviously angela merkel's concentration here at home is to try and find that coalition but she's still working abroad and all the issues that concern germany and those range from donald trump to bricks it was you just spoke there right thomas sparrow thank you. spain's prime minister used today's summit in brussels to inform e.u. leaders that his government has reached
6:10 pm
a critical point in its efforts to hold catalonia as bid for independence that it was seeking emergency powers such as taking control of the region's health care and policing meanwhile catherine president carter's push tomorrow warned that any such move could result in a unilateral declaration of independence. i spoke of that point about to catalonia with benefits from the business desk not sit by them thank you very much it's german i think. not from catalonia ok. catalan leaders say if the banks can shift their headquarters out of the region they can simply withdraw their savings independent supporters have been storming some a.t.m. in quite an unusual protest in other cases the response to the rallying cry has been lackluster. withdrawing money has become a form of protest in catalonia separatists are determined to show their discontent with banks like unsober dell which have moved their headquarters away from the
6:11 pm
region financial institutions are worried the current instability could take a toll on their business. it's a way of exerting pressure after peaceful protesters were arrested and put in prison but if there's another way to put pressure on the spanish state but it's a. list of us but. some protesters withdrew one hundred fifty five euros in reference to article one hundred fifty five of the spanish constitution which madrid employs to impose direct rule over the region others opted for different songs together. with three one thousand seven hundred fourteen euro's which coincides with the year seven hundred forty one that we celebrate on september eleventh and the end of withdrawals are a form of protest for money but this time as a result some a.t.m.'s had a ready run eyes of cash by friday morning.

headquarters in new nick this week we're just getting the news now that. the frankfurt stock exchange to tell us more and to give us the reaction from markets on this. conrad well then the official of yes spend the official wording is that the u. commission investigated at b.m.w. headquarters in munich which is of course something that could be expected since it's been out while already there your commission suspects that the german carmakers formed some sort of illegal cartel b.m.w. says no comment but well that's something perfectly understandable no company wants to talk about stuff like that i guess b.m.w. shares are obviously down today although it does seem to have such a squeaky clean reputation otherwise. yes the shares of b.m.w.
6:13 pm
are down but all carmakers have lost today and that has to do with news from germany's largest leasing companies six leasing where it's reported that the resale of diesel cars is so bad the prices have dropped so much that it really has problems the shares in six leasing lost eleven percent today and of course that's a bad omen for the sale of cars in general so that had an impact on the share prices of the car makers today now comrade you have a lot of experience reporting from frankfurt on the central bank the european central bank its chief mario draghi before i come to our next story could you just give me your typical friday face. my typical friday failure this. friday. one of excess one of excitement and one of relief i think thank you very much conrad who is and that brings me to our next topic every move you make every

word you speak even what you wear in some cases it's all monitored obsessive lee if your a central bank governor like these guys behind me it's the case the world over especially in the run up to major policy announcements investors are intent on jumping on anything that could give them the faintest of clues about an upcoming interest rate rise or policy shift but can a face move a market research as in japan think so. the many faces of bank of japan governor how will he koku road but what's he thinking and more importantly what's he about to say that's the question researchers believe they'll soon be able to answer. critical there are still pretty basic but we've proven the correlation between the governor's facial expressions and the decisions he makes on fiscal policy i believe we can use this method to predict his next move on monetary policy
6:15 pm
of. central bank chiefs are used to close scrutiny take e.c.v. head mario draghi some people believe his choice of type presents a clue about his fiscal plan. others think the way federal reserve chair janet yellen construct her sentences can be revealing. video's of federal reserve chair woman janet yellen and easy to be had mario draghi are readily available so why won't the research to cover them to. from facial expressions to fiscal intentions. image of the bank of japan governor has been assigned one hundred percent happiness racing but what exactly that says about his next policy decision remains unclear after all looks can be deceiving. my friday face. now position. c.j.

6:17 pm
a strain on the country's resources. reports the rains have been good this year in northwestern uganda for the smallholder farmers here that's good news especially since those who don't have access to water from the nile a one of the lakes still depend on rainfall rather than irrigation uganda usually receives enough rainfall to grow staples like maize and plantation and even cash crops like coffee it therefore stands out as a country able to feed itself even when the rest of the region is suffering from drought uganda's government is often accused of being off the road tarion but and from german n.g.o.s veld who now has credits the leadership with a commitment to fighting hunger. i think the government is doing a big effort and they have a national plan where they also put the issue of food security high on their agenda but due to a lot of things like for instance a large influx of refugees their resources are very strained and therefore they're
6:18 pm
very much dependent on external support. to cope with the situation uganda is home to over one point three million refugees mainly from south sudan and it has been lauded for its liberal policy each refugee family gets a piece of land from which to feed itself. not unlike us where we planted eggplant on another plot and the quality was good now we're trying out onions and hope they will be good to. the refugees also get food rations of maize and beans from international organizations the vegetables from the farm and the russians are just enough for breakfast and one hot meal naturally the newcomers put a strain on already limited resources. we have in uganda high population density we have a high population where we have a lot of youth. many of them face unemployment the environmental issues are
6:19 pm
becoming more and more pressing so there are a lot of things that the ugandan government has to deal with that actually limits their capacity to address the food security situation in the country one in four ugandans today suffers from our nourishment access to a balanced diet is often limited by the fact that people can't afford certain foods rather than food not being available so while uganda is generally able to feed itself improving food security remains a major challenge. after some of the other stories making news around the world trucks have become voting in a two day parliamentary election that's expected to hand power to a populist billionaire frontrunner. promised to stamp out corruption boost investment and keep refugees. it is our new movement is likely to need coalition partners to form a new government. afghan authours he says suicide bombers a shiite mosque in western kabul has killed thirty two people and wounded dozens more the attacker reportedly walked into the mosque and detonated his explosives in

6:22 pm
deliberately trying to make folks saying we're going. to demonize people who have different ideas. to get the base all riled up because it provides a short term tactical advantage. george w. bush also avoided naming trump but it was clear who was on his mind. bigotry seems emboldened our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication we've seen nationalism distorted in the nativism. forgotten the dynamism that immigration is always brought to america it began with the mexican border wall these prototypes no wonder consideration. then trump said some neo nazis who marched in charlottesville were fighting people. last month he slammed black football players for taking
