a half seconds electric hypercar of acculturation start up is giving the traditional auto industry a run for its money. welcome to. in berlin thanks for joining us it's the latest development in a decades long transatlantic tussle over aviation subsidies the e.u. has come up with a list of twenty billion dollars worth of u.s. products that could be hit by terrorists it's a response to what it says are unfair subsidies to american plane maker boeing it comes after washington published its own list of european products attacks over what it claims is a legal state a two year olds or bust now all eyes are on the world trade organization for a way out of what could turn into a tit for tat spiral. planes. catch up handbags suitcases and cigarettes are a part of the e.u. is eleven page list of u.s.
imports worth twenty billion dollars that could soon be hit with tariffs it would come into play if the u.s. goes ahead with its own plans to levy tariffs in the aircraft subsidy dispute. but any final decision on levels of harm and compensation will not be decided by either the e.u. or the u.s. now when it comes to the possible this isn't on the level of used countermeasures that decision has to be stablished in light of the final decision of the cio every traitor that we expect to come in the near future washington and brussels are already in conflict after us president donald trump subjected e.u. steel and many of imports to punitive tariffs the e.u. responded with duties on two point eight billion euros of u.s. imports the latest airplane subsidy tariff list is open to consultation until may the thirty first and could still be revised and both sides have said they would
prefer a settlement that did not involve tariffs joining me now is a quarter our financial correspondent on wall street good to see you well all this week they declared its preparedness to start formal trade talks with the u.s. how would you assess sentiment out of washington also given this development. well especially u.s. president donald trump has said that when it comes to trade to europe it's probably as bad as china he called trade dealings saw for europe a brutal at some point so i'm quite certain that he will not be responding too well to those threats i'm having that said if you talk to analysts here around to wall street and washington most people still believe that there will not be an escalation in the trade dealings between the years and the european union what i hear is that the e.u.
could retaliate in a very targeted fashion we've heard what products might be at stake here and it is doubtful that the u.s. president donald trump will really risk any threatening to the u.s. economy especially as we're getting closer and closer to the next presidential election so even if the talks might be heating up a bit there is still hope that this dispute can be settled well speaking of hope yet fresh figures show that the u.s. trade deficit has narrowed more than expected is this a reason for optimism despite all that political posturing. it certainly is a good sign overall for the u.s. economy and for possible future air grows in february that's where we got the numbers for we saw exports from the u.s. increasing more than imports and probably that there was
a little bit of softening in the trade talks between china and the u.s. played a major factor for example soybean exports increased them quite a bit and talking about china there were none not confirmed reports that both sides might be aiming to come up with a deal by memorial day what would be by the end of may but we had said. earlier and so far they haven't materialized but also talking about hope so there are some signs that we might get a deal between the u.s. and china soon eternal optimism from one's car to there on wall street thank you very much. the portuguese government has declared an energy crisis gas stations are running dry as eight hundred fuel tanker drivers continue to strike over pay and working conditions it's the worst industrial unrest the current administration has seen and especially motorists are feeling the effects of long
lines formed at gas stations across portugal many no longer have fuel on offer the strike has brought supplies to critically low levels it's all they're fighting for what they think is fair and i think they should fight as i stated i have indeed i think we all have the right to go on strike but it's really incredible that it causes this chaos you can hardly fill a tank any way. possible. and the shortages were felt at airports in the capital lisbon and pharo in the algarve region the country's biggest tourism hubs some airlines are refueling their planes before they land in portugal to have enough for their return flights. the fuel truck drivers are striking for better pay and working conditions they're demanding a basic income of twelve hundred euros a month up from the current seven hundred euros. we're ready to work but we want to see a problem so if the chances of that are looking slim at the moment as the employer association antrim is remaining tough and the same country has always been
available to negotiate but this must be done that side the context of a strike should be no negotiation under pressure and with a strike on china will not start any type of negotiation with the unions because on the third day of the strike the fuel truck drivers agreed to provide essential supplies to hospitals airports and military facilities but as the strike continues fuel shortages are worsening across the country. now to some of the other business stories making news around the world once india's largest airline jet airways says it is suspending operations after failing to find lenders to keep a lost the airline is sitting on more than a billion dollars in debt jet airways pilots complain that they haven't been paid in four months a total of twenty thousand jobs are at state. spanish police say they've arrested two men they called the country's most active distributors of counterfeit twenty

manufacturer is that they're still quite a small team we're still very quick so we act and we. started with the electric car trains we did shift from one technology to another so from combustion engine to electric but we this is this was our work from the beginning. we're still very much a rematch founded the company ten years ago when he was twenty one pounds back then he was an innovative thinker installing electric engines into all b.m.w. . today remotes to believe headquartered near zagreb employs nearly five hundred people the engineers develop the cars from scratch with all components created by the company the cars are limited editions after all a remotes can cost up to a million euros the innovations have attracted investors porsche and two chinese companies own stakes in remounts they want to profit from the technical know how of
the croatian firm now are we. still a big one of the production we will never call us market not the cars not the components but we will go bigger so currently we are able to supply hundreds of units of batteries. electric motors and systems remotes is an exceptional kind of business in croatia tourism is the main pillar of the economy here economic recovery has been slow compared to other eastern european members many educated young people are emigrating and croatian entrepreneurs have a bad reputation. well the culture sometimes leans toward center premier as being kind of peeves this song as because of experiences in the transition process in the night is in today's a lot of corruption scandals that happened recently and during the ninety's.
still despite offers to move production abroad remounts is sticking with its location in croatia it's currently planning a new factory with production lines for batteries and power trains and with c two hypercar. and that's it for me in the business team here in berlin for more business news and he chairs check out d.w. dot com slash business are follow us on facebook and on twitter thank you so much for watching.
