people the blue house the presidential palace here in seoul has official there has said that president moon would like to go to singapore and at a working level discussions are going on as to how to make that happen but as we understand it they would look to see how that trump kim jong un meeting goes first before perhaps joining the meeting later the same day perhaps minutes or hours later but not at exactly the same time as the first bilateral between kim jong il and president trump or it may be days they may be talking about trilateral meeting weeks or even months down the line if this is the beginning of a process rather than a one off so not a trilateral to replace a bilateral the kim jong il and president kim jong un president trump meeting would be the first one to take place and that is the one that everyone's working towards fiercely at the moment but it is possible a trilateral might follow or andrew thomas there see one coup is marriage an editor of career exposé news magazine he believes south korea's moon

12:18 pm
good thing about secondhand clothes was that even with a little money you could still manage to buy something nice for your child even if it was just a sure you could at least say your child is well dressed but now i see some children in my neighborhood walking around naked because the parents cannot afford to buy them clothes while others are walking around wearing torn clothes and met never used to happen. on the run the government argues the tariffs are needed to boost the local manufacturing sector they have a lot of local random government producers as well you know who are really you know producing very competitive products as well and so our first goal is to really support those who are in the market. is a c.e.o. of rich management investment advisory and the nairobi based investment advisor joins us now from london good to have you with us so it's a big issue for the reasons we've already explained there in kenya tanzania and
12:19 pm
uganda the other question is do you think the u.s. trump administration is overreacting. yes yes i do i think the u.s. administration under trump is all about making america great again and president kagame is all about making rwanda and making africa great again and africa is not going to be made great unless it can industrialize and it's very clear that in this particular case africa is a dumping ground for used clothes i appreciate the fact that people get access to cheap secondhand clothes but if we're going to develop our industries we simply cannot compete against the deluge of cheap clothes i think president got me is one individual who's not going to be rolled over in this particular situation and he's going to make a stand or bananas let me jump in here although you say that it's the supporters of the u.s. position and why should america give free access to african countries who are then
12:20 pm
slapping tariffs on american goods even if it is only used close. the whole philosophy around a go which was around helping africa stand on its two feet we've seen so many instances the coffee markets the agricultural produce markets where africa has simply does not have any leverage on the value chain and this is an attempt by africa to get leverage on the value chain it's an attempt to develop industry it's an attempt to industrialize and essentially you know we've seen all our industries hollowed out one of the classic examples is actually textile manufacturing which is now being addressed in east africa and i think it's important that we look at things holistically and if we're going to look at it holistically we can't talk about the industrialization of africa on one hand and then be dumping africa with all kinds of of goods and in this case in the case of used clothes so i think he
12:21 pm
has to stand he is the president of the african union and absolutely we got to draw a line in the sand somewhere and this is the right line to be drawn is the u.s. trade policy towards africa as a whole changing is this part of a bigger picture it's not just about used clothes. i think you're right actually sami and i think we have a very transactional government in the us they're looking at it entirely through the prism of of u.s. national interest the definition of which is quite strange at times it seems extremely transactional but essentially i think you're completely correct i don't think trungpa looks at the continent in the same way previous administrations did and previous administrations were trying to lend a helping hand we're trying to create jobs within the continent that was the silver bullet that i go it was meant to be all about we've got enormous demographics and
12:22 pm
people call it a demographic dividend but it's not going to be a demographic dividend in less we create jobs and what we have seen is in tech cells in particular there is an enormous opportunity to employ our people but we're not going to be able to employ anyone if we allow this to continue in the way it is . interesting discussion there thanks so much alex hunter to thank you sunny france is hosting a meeting on tuesday between rival libyan political factions to try mend seven years of conflict the emphasis will be on committing to u.n. banks presidential and parliamentary elections by the end of the year it will also be a push to unify the army and adopt a new draft constitution than one had reports from for fully. it's been more than two years since libya's you and bagged political agreement was signed in roll call but it has not yet been implemented france is now launching another initiative to

a meeting between prime minister suraj and i have to the two men were also invited to be in may last year why not invite the other party in the west that took out their their largess presence of the irish outside syria and iraq and that's why there is a large delegation of military and armed groups. team full rebels who defeated eisel in the city of silt in two thousand and sixteen as we'll as other figures are not represented at the french's sponsored meeting many here say with their with dimming colluded it will be a challenge to reach a comprehensive political settlement several meetings between rival politicians in the past has failed to put an end to the crisis in libya the question now is if they finally come to a consensus will it be accepted by libyans who do not trust their politicians.
