hope certainly there's a shadow over the whole event because of the of the trade war i was reading in one analyst was saying that it could mean that growth this year would be 0.2 percent in the world which is the worst since the global financial crisis so there are indications that they you know this is the 1st face to face meeting since may the 10th so they were deafened to be hoping that they can come up with some groundwork the kind later in the month and be used as the basis for more progress all right well clifford mentioning the impact on global trade certainly germany being one of the major exports a nation the latest because. released already we already read anything into them in relation to the u.s. china trade drought. yes we can monica the german export numbers look significantly worse than what economists had predicted the expectation had been
10:34 am
a contraction of minus 0.9 percent for the month of april but german exports actually contracted by 3.7 percent now the german statistics office does not specify the numbers by country but the trade spat between the u.s. and china has had a very negative impact on business sentiment in many places of the world and well germany the export nation is really is selling its goods to so many places in the world it gets to feel the punch everywhere interesting enough though that the u.s. economy doesn't seem to feel the pinch and the i.m.f. has just raced growth forecast for the u.s. economy for this year how come. you know monica at the beginning of the year when the i.m.f. made its 1st growth forecast for the united states everyone a large majority of economists had predicted that the federal reserve would probably raise interest rates in the course of this year now that scenario has

completely changed only this week jerome powell the fed chief said that higher interest rates is really not something to worry about at the moment in the u.s. and he. explicitly mentioned the ongoing trade negotiations and the trade implications so right at the same time cliff we see a very interesting development that chinese president xi jinping is calling russian president vladimir putin his best friend and we certainly see the kind of typical pound diplomacy going on there is there a new ally ins a growing against the u.s. well i think china and russia have had a complicated a long relationship. but very possibly china is now looking around for friends i think in economic terms it's maybe not as significant given that i think the russian economy is around the same size is nice but but certainly in political terms it's a very strong alliance and he will feel that it gives him extra leverage with

a lot of the of the not non allies of the u.s. when going forward in discussions about how to resolve the trade war just briefly because u.s. president to trump is expected to meet his chinese counterpart also at the g. 20 summit at the end of the buns when the latest politically does a coming together there he said he would decide whether he will raise 300000000000 euros tariffs on chinese goods then likely outcome well we'll see what happens this weekend if they if they do get the ground work. it's so unpredictable you know we had mexican tariffs on mexico last week which no one would have called me with the pace at which they happened so i think it could very well. and he does like to be seen very publicly to resolve problems and the trade war of course would be a very big story if he was able to resolve that so maybe that would be where everything is possible there from a business and. in frankfurt thank you so much to both of you. and things have
