united states mexico and canada it saw many manufacturing jobs move south to mexico as a result where labor was cheaper one of the worst trade deals ever on the campaign trail trump promised to renegotiate nafta and bring back jobs particularly in the auto sector the new deal will require seventy five percent of an american car to be made in mexico or the united states up from sixty two percent workers making those vehicles must also be paid a minimum sixteen dollars an hour but missing from this latest agreement is canada will start negotiating with canada relatively soon they want to start they want to negotiate very badly. relations between the two countries have been frosty since trump slapped tariffs on canadian steel and aluminum canada's foreign minister will travel to the u.s. this week to restart negotiations but it's not clear canada will agree to the

8:12 am
has subsided we see a very different economic context in saudi arabia the i.m.f. issued relatively positive consultation that they concluded in july you saw growth nonoy of growth reaching about two point three percent a decrease in the but year on year budget deficit from about nine to four point five percent expected in two thousand and eighteen and also the introduction of various other economic measures like the value added tax and reducing fuel subsidies so of course there's going to be some disappointment from global investors that we're very hungry for to be part of this i.p.o. there will certainly be disappointment from some policy makers within saudi arabia that hope that they could generate approximately one hundred billion dollars from this i.p.o. that would then feed into the public investment fund. still ahead an al jazeera ugandan opposition m.p. bobi wine is released on bail but his legal troubles are far from over. and czech

8:19 am
the end this court agrees with iran that decision might be binding but the u.s. doesn't actually have to go by what the court says so it's a good attempt i think by iran to try to get somewhere with this but ultimately likely to not be very successful. u.s. president donald trump and kenya's leader have been talking about trade and security during your herd kenyatta his visit to the white house and as i once more access to u.s. markets for kenyan businesses trump's been wanting to discuss security and china's significant investment in african countries it's the second time since he took office the chums met a leader from sub-saharan africa. very good to excellent cooperation especially in our fight against terrorism because of the neighborhood women. face which are the united states have been very strong and solid partner but more importantly we're here to pursue and to strengthen trade and investment ties uganda's high court
