this is did of your business i'm proud of as welcome today china box forty years since its economy opened up to the rest of the world a move that ultimately turned china into the global economic powerhouse it is today second in g.d.p. terms only to the u.s. in his speech at the great hall of the people in the chinese capital beijing chinese president xi jinping vowed to press ahead with economic reforms but he also made clear that beijing will not deviate from its one constant system of take orders from any other country is comments came only a day after the u.s. and china clashed at the world trade organization needed. for more that i'm now joined by cliff it is the beijing correspondent of the irish times a newspaper to feel welcome what did you make of the speech today well we had a lot of talk today about on swerving commitment to reforms and great socialist
6:18 pm
rhetoric there it was a very defiant speech i think one aimed at telling the chinese people that china remains strong given that there is some anxiety in china about pressure coming from the u.s. because of the trade war so i think it was very much about about painting a very positive picture of china's strength well this remark about china not being told how to do business and clearly washington yes it was aimed obviously is that it at the domestic audience but yes it's a message for president trump who's been. president trump has always been a difficult. person to deal with for the chinese as a the other countries of experience because people is exam predictable so this is basically laying a kind of a foundation i think saying that china will be strong in the face of pressure from the u.s. we've all gotten used to china growing wildly in the past forty years actually it's sort of gone down ever so slightly growth is not as stellar. it will
6:19 pm
but is there any end in sight well certainly the trade war is putting a lot of pressure on the economy china needs to sell its goods to the u.s. even as it tries to move from manufacturing to innovative products it needs it still needs to sell in the u.s. and also tries to boost the domestic market but we are seeing growth is easing as you say some people are saying that it could be easy easing even further than people imagine so it's hard to say how long it could continue for but we're certainly not going to see a return to the stellar growth rates of previous years does china need more political transformation many people said the political transformation would follow on the economic reforms does it need more well some of us are saying at the moment that liberalization has to happen otherwise china is going to be a little bit like japan in the ninety's where basically the economy seizes up because it runs out of options about where to go and money doesn't move quickly enough for that to happen and i think it's very likely that china would need to
6:20 pm
liberalize more he did mention this today in the speech that he's prepared to liberalize but to reform more but he didn't give many details about how exactly that would happen. i think would not be very specific. these speeches are always about presenting a big strong front to the not been altered by details on the details tend to get hammered out in smaller planet among the party elite later on and i think that's very much what we saw today political and thank you very much for this insight. economic growth in britain is expected to drop to its lowest rate in a decade that's according to a forecast from the british chambres of commerce the business lobby expects growth of one point two percent in twenty eighteen that figure would make this the weakest year for the u.k. economy since it emerged from recession in two thousand and ten uncertainty over britain's imminent departure from the european union and fears over the reintroduction of terrorist of left many british businesses on edge meanwhile
6:21 pm
international companies are the exit from britain to the continent to facilitate continued market access that while we're on the subject let's bring in our financial correspondent from frankfurt only knows swiss bank credit suisse is also advising clients to get out of britain that's hardly a vote of confidence as it. that's true and it is really making waves here credit suisse is not commenting on this report that's to be seen in the f.t. and it's spread around through all sorts of other media but apparently after the parliamentary vote in london and westminster on the back so it was postponed because the prime minister didn't want to have it voted on the customers started coming to credit suisse in droves asking that their money be in some way made safe and that apparently prompted credit suisse to advise its super rich customers its
6:22 pm
prime customers to move assets to move money out of the country so that if there is a no deal practice certain things go down the tube in some way the money is still there are not locked up in prison but definitely not only the super rich clients of credit suisse worried that as we've heard the report that german business sentiment is also have been affected by breaks it all the right to be worried. i think they're right to be worried to be fair it's not only breakfast there are other things on investors' minds as well the inflation going up in the united states interest rate hikes chinese growth or trade but bracks it is taking an ever larger role and the index going down for the fourth month in a row that is a strong signal that the confidence in the current situation and the situation a couple of months from now both are polled is seen as to be less desirable less
