8:02 am
president donald trump is in vietnam where he says that he will always put america first when it comes to trade he's speaking at the apec summit. where he told asia pacific leaders that he is open to bilateral free trade talks with all of them but he said that the u.s. cannot tolerate what he called chronic trade abuses tranced policy could make him the odd man out as the region pushes ahead with a free trade deal without the u.s. trump also had tough words for china saying that the two countries current trade imbalance could not go on i recently had an excellent trip to china where i spoke openly and directly with president xi about china's unfair trade practices and the enormous trade deficits they have produced with the united states i expressed our strong desire to work with china to achieve a trading relationship that is conducted on
8:03 am
a truly fair and equal basis the current trade imbalance is not acceptable. and as trump was making that speech we got word that there could be some movement on the t p p negotiations in the meantime a massive trade there monica jones here to tell us more i want to stress our is not yet official it's not yet official we're trying to put together bits and pieces what we do know is that news agency reuters reports a breakthrough in the trans pacific trade pact a japanese prime minister shinzo has welcomed a broad agreement reached at a ministerial meeting on the p.p. trade deal and that is according to a written statement by the japanese government now the us had pulled out of a t p p a year ago and trade ministers of the remaining eleven nations have been holding talks on the sidelines of the apec forum taking place in vietnam again there is no official confirmation on
8:04 am
a t p p deal just yet but of course we will keep you posted now talking of t. p. p. it's been years in the making its purpose was to bring pacific nations closer together with low tariffs in part to combat china's growing influence in the region who is involved let's take a quick look we have of course australia we have brunei canada chile japan malaysia mexico new zealand peru singapore vietnam and or originally over there the united states together those economies make up almost forty percent of global g.d.p. but when president donald trump announced that the united states would be exiting the deal the future of the p.p. was called into question because without the u.s. the remaining countries account for just fourteen percent of the world's g.d.p. so the question was could the agreement hold up without the united states several
8:05 am
big economies including japan that we know now australia new zealand they say yes they're determined to see the deal through they certainly believe that the asia pacific region. could be a key driver of future growth still is t p p a powerful trade deal without having the united states in it and that is something i wanted to know from adults in deputy director of the center for international economics. well there are several reasons why there is a point of course with the u.s. as a bammer of p.p.p. the world as such for example be calculated that it would have experienced the additional growth of one percent but without the us this gains would be much smaller but still there isn't a reason to pursue p.p. because it may be a platform to prepare a future joining of the us once we know whether trump has a long term strategy for if you're pacific because that would make the point very
8:06 am
clear from the u.s. perspective of course there was an economic motive to push there was there was a but there was a much more stronger argument for a geo strategic a political reasons which were driving president obama obama to push for this treaty exactly and donald trump we've heard this several times already is more interested in sort of bilateral commitments and that is also what we've seen now when he was visiting china before we get to that this is i mean t p p to a large extent was also a two could china's influence in the region by pulling out the u.s. from positif exactly the opposite to a certain extent it may be that china now can increase its influence through this economic bridges which which is china is pursuing and uptick of course also this possibility and it's interesting on the one hand it's not only that the us stepped out of p.p.p. additionally the us is bilaterally increasing our trade relations with china it's
8:07 am
exactly the opposite of what bomber was racially we have this we had this two hundred fifty billion dollar business deal that donald trump signed yesterday in beijing which you say that trumps this it in terms of economy called in terms of trade was a success so far well if you have these numbers that sounds always very nice let me give you another out numbered bilateral trade between china and the u.s. is there. six hundred billion that sounds great the question is always how much of this two hundred fifty billions will be generated in the u.s. because that is the biggest problem of the trumpet and station that jobs are located in china and there we do not have information i mean the united states is the world's biggest economy and it's a huge political player trump going for bilateral agreements how does that impact the region where this is it makes sense from an individual country's
8:08 am
perspective but in the long run this will create problems because there will be interactions there will be a more protection as to trade in other countries which are excluded and we just prepared to study analyzing this envy can illustrate in the long run such a bilateral progress it is a disadvantage for all countries in the world because at the end there is more protections attitudes growing around the world all right at any outs in the deputy director of the center for international economics thank you so much thank you well even without d.p.p. and without the united states engaging in a multilateral free trade deal the asia pacific region is boosting impressive growth yet non the host of the apec summit is a good example the booming nation of ninety five million people is thriving from surging trade and investment even without the advantage its exports might have gained from the u.s. participation in the transpacific partnership. vietnam's export sector has
8:09 am
blossomed as manufacturers have moved their factories to southeast asia and minchin is the c.e.o. of a garment factory outside vietnam's capital one way he says his business doesn't depend on the t.p. . tours it might. even without p.p. our production continues and we still get many orders from our u.s. clients the. leaders of the eleven remaining t p p member states will be seeking you know remains that unlike the original accord won't require u.s. involvement but adams said come from the american chamber of commerce in vietnam feels a bit left out of it all when we look at asia we see a new job of trade agreements already all these countries negotiating all these things with each other unfortunately the u.s. is not in. almost any of these agreements u.s. president donald trump's withdrawal from the t p p has scarcely dented the push for freer trade in the region judging from the growth and emerging prosperity in
8:10 am
vietnam. arrival the middle east is always an interesting place to be but these days even more so as there are a lot of moving and shaking going on where we know that tension especially between saudi arabia and iran is roiling the region french president a manual has paid a surprise visit to riyadh on friday he said that he wanted to speak with the crown prince mohammed bin psalm on about the saudi led war in yemen and its tensions with iran has earlier said that he blamed tehran for a missile that shiite rebels in yemen launched at a saudi airport now the conflict between saudi arabia and iran has also spilled over into lebanon accusations over the fate of lebanon's former prime minister have sent tensions soaring. a saudi state run television and one thing that the country is ordering its citizens out of lebanon neighboring kuwait quickly followed suit. it was a reaction to political turmoil in lebanon and comes amid
8:11 am
a deepening regional crisis. lebanon is caught up in a wider conflict between saudi arabia and regional rival iran lebanese prime minister saad hariri is currently in saudi arabia from where he announced his shell crabs ignition last weekend. members of harry's political party say saudi arabia is holding him hostage and are demanding his return in. the return of our national leader prime minister saad hariri is necessary to recover respect for lebanon's internal and external balance in the framework of full respect for lebanese legitimacy and our constitution. kerry took office last year as the head of a coalition grouping most lebanese parties including iran backed militant group hezbollah . now accusations are flying that riyadh is trying to wreck the unity deal as part
8:12 am
of its regional power play with tehran. this instability is worrying not only for the people of lebanon but also for international powers. let's get a quick check now some other stories that have been making news around the world how to may for the former castle and parliament president has been sent to jail a spanish judge has set her bail at one hundred fifty thousand euros checks is expected to pay that well and to be released by friday for about together with other former cattle out officials is charged with sedition and rebellion following the catalan independence referendum in october. more than five hundred thousand asylum seekers remain stranded in a decommissioned australian camp and new guinea the camp has been cut off from power food and water and was officially declared closed on october thirty first but most of the camp residents have refused to relocate due to safety concerns and
8:13 am
breaths for local residents. all week we have been reporting from the united nations climate change summit which is taking place in the german city of bonn the big topic on the agenda is what do you think carbon dioxide emissions wild why we know that the biggest polluters overall are the united states and china but how do the fig. stack up when we look at c o two emissions related to population check this out australia tops the list it belches out more than eighteen tons of c o two per capita the united states in second place with sixteen point one tons and it is closely followed by saudi arabia with sixteen tons of c o two per capita it's clear that the u.s. has a key role to play in reducing global c o two emissions but earlier this year u.s. president donald trump caused a stir when he announced that his nation would pull out of the paris climate accord here's one i was elected to represent. the
8:14 am
citizens of pittsburgh not paris. those words did not go down well in pittsburgh itself not only because the city voted overwhelmingly against trump but also because it has worked hard to overcome its image as a decaying former center of coal and steel in fact pittsburgh is undergoing an impressive economic transformation as our correspondent carson phenomena reports. this is the old image of pittsburgh a city of steel and coal where the chimney stacks never stop bedsit smoke and west read lights had to be left on twenty four hours a day because the smog blocked out the sun but today's reality is a different one the city has cleaned up its act and instead of heavy industry banks and high tech companies are now providing jobs for a growing population more than thirteen thousand pittsburghers are employed in the clean energy sector alone and companies such as evah power which operates wind
8:15 am
farms in pennsylvania new york and is developing projects in other states too for co-founder and recall of best ski pittsburgh is the perfect place for innovative businesses i think it's the people you know it's great town pool here young people from some of the best universities in the country. also from a cultural standpoint you know there's a lot to offer we have three professional teams we have to l.a. we have to symphony we have the opera so many things that can draw great talent. pittsburgh's transformation is the result of a concerted effort by the city government to attract startups and of the businesses while at the same time keeping an eye on environmental and social issues one of the people working on pittsburgh's turnaround is development analyst sarah yeager. to take a holistic approach as how can we improve pittsburgh why this is creating more jobs more low income housing access to public transportation. fossil fuel free vehicles
8:16 am
so electrifying our fleet access to more bike lanes i really how can we improve the quality of life for everybody and pittsburgh. another key factor in the city's formula for success is pittsburgh's colleges and iconic e mellon university many who started here at cmu have established themselves in the new economy founding startups in the vicinity of the campus and turning them into a vibrant enterprise is professor jean yang a specialist for programming languages is full of praise for the almost symbiotic relationship between scientists and tech companies here for instance do a lingo was started by lease on and he had this actual office for a long time before he left for doing go all together and so a lot of the duelling of people are involved with cmu they come back here to listen to talks to speak. and everything is quite close so the people are companies
8:17 am
they'll show up to talks here people here they'll spend some time at the company's jean yang grew up in pittsburgh when it was still a byword for the american rust belt as soon as she finished school she moved away like so many other talents and young people at the time and expected never to return now she's back in her hometown and enjoys not only great working conditions but also a new quality of life in her old neighborhood these are places where it was pretty sketchy to walk outside there after dark and i was just way inside for my parents to pick me up i wouldn't go outside on my own and when i came back i realize that wow there are all these bars there now there are restaurants the buildings are outside they still look pretty much the same but what's going on inside really it's like night and day so pittsburgh clearly is on the way up again with young people flocking to the city and the prospect of even better times ahead for the next generation. and the city of steel going green mountain. jones who has won the
8:18 am
industry and its pollution problems i mean that still exist and of course i mean germany has one of the name is still produces a lot is german steel giant to cope and it is doing its bit now to fight a global warming funks to a new technique called carbon to tim a company manages to reduce c o two output significantly and its production. the fiery heart of a to blast furnace induced. steel production releases enormous quantities of gas. the gases pipes away from the furnace and used for electricity generation and heating. despite that the steel giants for duis book furnace is still emit twelve million tons of carbon dioxide a year as well as methane and hydrogen the companies are out to change that.
8:19 am
view of how much tension we've decided to use the c o two as a raw material time to actually reuse it and consequently reduce our c o two footprint. using electrolysis technique called carbon to kim marcus elders and his team want to convert the greenhouse gas c.e.o. to into methanol and ammonia a pilot plant is already under construction of us pop manmade what's the point of methanol and ammonia when methanol is an excellent fuel and ammonia can be used to make fertilizer and. he's huge thick couple plates are about to be put into the pilot plant electrolysis requires a lot of electricity. so to avoid producing more c o two emissions the plant will run on renewable energy. europe's entire steel sector is under pressure it has to purchase the emissions rights for every turn of c o two it emits the industry says that undermines its international competitiveness. over the last
8:20 am
seventeen years steel makers have managed to use technology to cut c o two emissions by a full nineteen percent. partizan trip technicians say that's the limit. so the notion of using c o two as a raw material comes just at the right moment. this is the principal advantage of this technique is that it enables us to secure the future of the european steel industry to be dollars issued. on top of that there are fifty steel plants worldwide which could use this technology as well and. that opens up entirely new business prospects for to include right now the pilot plant so small its c o two saving is relatively low and the taxpayer is footing half of its one hundred twenty million euro bill but once the technology goes into commercial operation become pany says it could save twenty million tons of c o two emissions

in germany alone every year environmentally that would be a quantum leap. well the jet i'm nights off science fiction blockbuster star wars has been granted a new mission after saving civilizations from imminent destruction in space then all tasked with boasting business profits star was this the most lucrative movie franchise of all time and business planning a brand new trilogy of the saga the entertainment and giant hopes that more intergalactic battles will calm nerves about its own laudrup quarterly earnings profits were lower than expected in a t.v. cable and film divisions disney claims competition from streaming service netflix it's now planning its own streaming service exactly when the new star wars trilogy will begin is not clear. tensions between the united states and cuba were thawing under president barack obama but that's history now donald trump
8:22 am
pledged to roll back his predecessor's move towards warmer ties with obama and on says day his government made good on that promise by imposing sanctions against cuban firms but in the end those sanctions will hurt both sides. it's never been easy for americans to travel to cuba since fidel castro led the communists to power there in one nine hundred fifty nine. the caribbean island was accessible only via specialized to a company's kind of supervised tourism. but the new u.s. sanctions make it even more difficult for american tourists in cuba now they're banned from using a whole range of hotels restaurants and businesses a total of one hundred eighty companies have been blacklisted. washington wants to prevent certain cuban companies from cashing in on the tourist boom. a lot of u.s. visitors say the new restrictions are wrong. i'm concerned most of what i've seen so far in cuba i think we have never seen you have
8:23 am
a person this guy you're supposed to if you've been the musician actually guy he's really helped us understand you know what's going on this country and that's that's i think going to be done more open to specially to americans cubans like to god ricardo stores are also critical moment you know probably everyone who's family here in the u.s. . it makes no sense to complicate the normal things of the world like this. and yet. last year over half a million americans visited cuba not least as a result of the warming of relations between the two countries the sector's potential is huge after several decades in which it was almost impossible for u.s. citizens to travel to the communist led country. thus i don't know does cuba have a big soccer team i think that they're big soccer for us yeah i know that they're definitely baseball fanatics but when it comes to soccer though we're actually
