this is your business update on how the home free but lead thanks for joining me with a matter of months to go until briggs it confusion of bounds over what forces departure from the e.u. will mean for business on both sides of the channel as lawmakers continue to engage in a heated debate british companies have issued a stern warning to prime minister theresa may saying that a messy exit could put thousands of jobs at risk industry representatives here in germany have also been voicing concerns calling for both european of british lawmakers to outline their plans by october. so to talk more about how german business is preparing for briggs it i'm joined in the studio now by paolo mesa from the federation all the german industries good to see you thanks for having me nine months to go in theory to breaks it all german businesses worried what are they telling you and all of a getting out of britain very very concerned because we don't know what's going to
happen after after the exit date it's march twenty ninth you said it's nine months to go i want to talk to companies i hear that the third plans to prepare for what's what's considered the worst case if we crash out without any deal at all what are those plans they set a new facilities they see whether they have other suppliers that are operate within the single market. hire people in order to process customs they think about whether the free flow of data is still possible with the u.k. and the e.u. they set up servers so it's a broad range and it's very individual based from no companies a company can say but it you know potentially a boon for germany we've seen lots of jobs from the city of london already moved back to francs so you know you said that the other side to this debate there's clearly a trend towards that but i wouldn't say that's a positive development because firms are based in the united kingdom for a reason they think it's the best place for at least that part of the value chain
to do business and you end up with a twofold negative consequence first of all you have you have a moving costs and a risk that's associated with it and on the other hand you end up in a place that is less optimal than the status quo so they currently think with the current status that is the best place to do business in what wall could you imagine the european union still doing business with britain without a deal is that even feasible. certainly is feasible but it comes with a huge to trim mental effect the single market is way more than what's considered a regular free trade agreement as we have it with a lot of external countries. and that's why why we also say as a business community we want to have the closest. the closest ties with the u.k. that a possible but we have to move within a short framework we have to make sure that we don't jeopardize our relationship with our fellow you twenty seven members we have to make sure that we don't jeopardize our relationship with with third countries. and this framework we have
to we have to end up in a solution that's probably more conventional than the government in london hopes all right well your body has called for clarity from britain and from brussels we will see what comes up from that upcoming summit from the federation all of german industries thank you and enough thanks. oh bricks and mortar stores are losing out to online giants like and as it now the appeal of ordering from the comfort of your home and having purchases delivered straight to your door is obvious that is until they arrive late or even get lost along the way now amazon is trying to get entrepreneurs to set up their own delivery fleets these great bands could help ease his own so called last mile problem the number of online orders is on the rise and customers expect quick delivery to their doorstep that's why the e-commerce giant wants to build its own delivery service says entrepreneurs can lease the vans from

international banking our correspondent cast in a phenomena caught up with him. western union can look back at a long history founded in eight hundred fifty one as a telegraph company it turned into a global provider of financial services but for c.e.o. he met s like the challenges of today start right at home he's worried about donald trump's america first policies and his crackdown on immigration in particular don't forget this country u.s. is built on immigration and this just forgot that you know that the success of us is immigrants and it's continued to be that and we know that you know from western union and if you move almost three hundred billion dollars a year or globally hundred fifty million customers globally we know how strong immigrants can be migrants re present a large share of western union customers and that is only one of the reasons why he has made refugee and immigration issues one of his key priorities for him it's

required to take vast swathes of parking space is new although unfinished at fort. collins new international airport is over budget years behind schedule and still resembles a huge vacant parking lot. and that's exactly what volkswagen is looking for right now a storage space for thousands of unsold all recalled cars it could be a win win deal that's what the locals reckon at least. is and us won't tell if it means berlin taking in more money which can then be used to refinance the airport and i'm in favor of the airport being used as a parking lot for b.w. started you know. it will take a while before the airports ready anyway and there's enough space so why not make use of it was. in the aftermath of the w.'s diesel emissions scandal the carmaker is under intense scrutiny by regulators in germany. but the company is producing
