2:05 pm
absent a strong policy response from beijing which we haven't seen yet i think the most likely scenario is that we will see a continue to see calling chinese to be how we would see that is through imports yes what can china try to do about this the primary thing that i think you know a stupid way to go on it is waiting for a stimulus response and so far they should stimulus response has been rather muted it now various infrastructure projects and various lending lucic but definitely nothing that would be nuts to move the needle shall we say so i think we're still waiting to hear some number of reasons as to why that might be holding off whether it's trade talks or whether it's a type of stealth stimulus but so far we really have not see the type of stimulus you would expect to see for beijing chris let me ask you about those trade talks have been plenty of uncertainty about how they are going especially after the latest round week and we're now approaching the halfway mark of the ninety day
2:06 pm
truce between the u.s. and china well these numbers have an impact on those discussions i think clearly knows the pressure they're under to votes we still are confident it's the best to clean up their feet or share in it to restoring bester confidence not just domestically but internationally so i think beijing clearly does that and i think the u.s. those there. needs to get a win here and they will be looking to put pressure on big shit because it. christopher balding speaking to us from from fulbright university thank you christopher zimbabwe has more than doubled the price of fuel overnight but the move has failed to ease the nationwide petrol and diesel shortage drivers have been queuing outside petrol stations in some cases for several days the fuel shortages began in october in a nation that suffered a severe economic downturn in recent years with effect from midnight tonight

2:08 pm
. it q but i think what's really problematic is that the government does and it is impression that the zimbabwean currency which is the border know it has the same value as the u.s. dollar which is not true and i think that's what's making a lot of people angry. videos of generals asking them how they can say that the u.s. dollar end is about window and the border nodes of equal value when the petrol prices actually different if. you pay the price that an ounce but if you for an hour or easier you know from a foreign embassy or whatever else you have to pay it had currency us and it's a different price for those people the whole premise from when especially after the amounts the new minister of finance is that you know we've got this one has to weigh in and we have to implement price control but at meeting that it's not one is two one in that the one note is until a ting with give power to the black market would give credence to what everybody
2:09 pm
has been saying that things are getting really difficult and the government needs a solution to the economy and it would also be difficult because the government is blaming western influences i just read a report with the government was saying that you know they have watching the civil society organizations that they think are being influenced by some western organizations to call for a shutdown or in protests that in tomorrow so if they have needs that the currency is not equal then you know it's it shows that the citizens are rights and the citizens can't be right and zimbabwe are put into the government. well a crackdown on fuel theft by mexico's new president is threatening to is leading to major congestion at ports more than seven million barrels of imported fuel are waiting to be offloaded from ships that's enough to keep mexico going for several days president and the us manual lopez obrador is trying to cut the theft of fuel

from pipelines by switching distribution from pipelines to trucks but it's led to major shortages at the pumps and queues of lorries at ports the leader of the british opposition says he will table a motion of no confidence soon if u.k. prime minister trees a maze breaks a deal is rejected by parliament jeremy corbyn says leaving the european union without a deal would be catastrophic m.p.'s are set to vote on tuesday on the deal that may has agreed with the european union my own view is that i would rather go go see a deal now if we can to stop the danger of a no deal an exit from the twenty ninth of march which would be catastrophic for industry catastrophic trade and the long term effects of that would be huge i think parliament did vote for an amendment to the finance bill this week which indicated its opposition to no deal but isn't totally specific on it we will do everything we can to prevent and no deal except. being homeless and hungry has become
2:11 pm
a criminal offense police are rounding up and fining people living on the streets join a whole reports from the capital. the sleek clean boulevards of budapest this is how increasingly all solitary and government wants them to look no refugees or illegal immigrants and no no homeless people either we are just trying to enable our authorities to step up against something which we believe is against human nature and human dignity and we would like public spaces to get their meaning back and operate as they were intended it's not a decision the government took lightly a previous attempt was ruled a violation of human dignity by the constitutional court so the government changed the constitution itself all of which is heartbreaking to people like youngish torak janish lives in a caravan after he lost his home his job even his family when a house fire and no insurance left him with crippling debt. i'm afraid of it
2:12 pm
i can't say better i'm afraid it could happen any time i wake up every morning scared that someone may not call my door and say we can take your stuff away go elsewhere the government did sists it's looking after the people being swept off the streets but we take care of them we provide shelter provisions and all the support that is required not a social workers but they believe that the showed their system is now and then i saw this problem heather and the government still thinks about opening some new show there is about the numbers show that there are more than thirty thousand people homeless in hungary at the moment there are eleven thousand places. cycling through the city volunteers carrying food and blankets search for those who've not made it to a shelter for the night in
2:13 pm
a railway station underpass where dozens once slept they find just three people. too many people in this in the shelters so there is a one hundred person and their way is there more than one hundred thirty yards or so it's a too crowded and overcrowding in the shelters so the volunteers means many homeless people have gone into hiding making them even more vulnerable to the elements. shelters like these this one is a private facility barely come close to meeting the needs of the homeless on the streets and while it's obviously a good idea to get people off the streets in below zero conditions like this and volunteers are doing what they can that's not the point behind the government's decision to criminalize homelessness in hungary one social worker described it as projecting power over the powerless jona whole al-jazeera budapest thousands of asylum seekers from haiti who were denied entry into the united states two years ago have established
2:14 pm
a community on mexico's northwestern border many have been granted work visas by the government and are helping new migrants adjust to life in mexico when you're a polo reports from tijuana just across the u.s. border. this restaurant is serving a patient style fried chicken. so why go are all a little onion garlic peppers always delicious. this popular food stop however isn't in haiti it's in downtown d one in mexico. many mexicans come here every day and also many americans come to buy food as well there are thousands of haitian nationals in tijuana. they began arriving two years ago in a caravan of some twenty two thousand people after fleeing a series of natural disasters and a political crisis in the impoverished caribbean nation denied entry into the
