10:13 pm
entire week since the cyclon hit shows us her house what is left of it this is where she and her children lived. in you are god to but they don't know the wind was so incredibly strong that it ripped away nearly everything we lost everything now we don't have anything to you know. i don't know if we will receive any kind of aid but nothing is left i don't have a job or field was destroyed i am a single mother i have to take care of my children and i have to take care of my parents my mother is sick we have to do our best to make ends meet. if we. nearly everyone who lives here has found their way of life ripped away from them most of them are fishermen but many boards were washed away with the storm
10:14 pm
those that remained have to be repaired at the mangroves were destroyed as well and the fish disappeared and have not returned since the second hit. the fewer tells on the island we're all so hard hit it might be a while before that your wrists return. most parts of he was completely destroyed it looks as a bulldozer drove over this little city here a lot of people have no places to stay anymore so they had to build little shacks like this one but many of told me they don't know how life will continue because they don't have the money to build new houses. the children can't spend the nights in their own house anymore because the danger of it collapsing on them is too great. so they have to take the only remaining bat and all eight of them sleeping under an improvised roof their food to snowy running out they still have some fruit and vegetables but is only enough for one meal

a day but she tries to stay optimistic nonetheless she wants her children to know that one way or another she will make things work. well if we are all going to drive electric cars in the future will need batteries france and germany are jumpstarting a joint project to produce batteries for electric vehicles they're asking the european commission to approve state subsidies to start the project the aim is to reduce europe's dependency on batteries from asia supply. electric cars and charging stations are still something of a rarity last year just two million electric cars were sold worldwide. but that looks set to change with all major carmakers hutchings plans to develop electric models. of course requires batteries at present battery cell production is dominated by asian companies those produced for tesla for example i made by
10:16 pm
a japanese company panasonic. now europe wants to get in on the game. germany and france have launched a project worth over five billion euros to develop battery cell production among the games staying competitive against the united states and china. we don't just want to meet demand from the european car industry we also want to export globally and make it clear that tree is made in europe represent an important quality standard for electric mobility and other alec tronic up occasions . around a billion euros of the earmarks funds comprise e.u. subsidies for cross border but we sell a consortium involving french carmaker peugeot and its sister company opel in germany a further four billion is expected to come from private companies including energy
10:17 pm
firms. not everyone believes the project is a good idea the german center for automotive research says high production costs mean european companies won't actually be able to compete with asian rifles. already the talk more about this time joining to the obama likes to know molly and she's from our business desk so you know why is it so important for europe to get into the business of making these car batteries well it's in the question brant it's all about europe now as we heard there in the report reducing the dependency on asian suppliers is a part of it but to argue that the reasons are purely economic and they only have to do but that wouldn't be right there's a big political dimension to this the european commission has likened this project to creating an arab bus for batteries so what does that mean it means a european champion and a global industry that is also by the way heavily subsidized so in a big way this is about politics france and germany want to get their brand out
10:18 pm
there to rival asian dominance at a time where global industry really is just a race between u.s. china and europe so and the press conference today now friend francis the finance minister lemaire made a point of saying that other european countries are interested in this as well italy belgium poland austria and so further underscoring how european this project is supposed to be there are critics though who say that this is a waste of money are they right while the criticism isn't isn't even about the money per se we're talking upwards of four billion euros with one point two billion euros and those european subsidies of if approved now some analysts investment in the sector at somewhere upwards of a trillion in the next two decades so really we're talking about a drop in the bucket here but the argument is that that money could probably be spent somewhere else critics are saying why aren't they investing this money in mobility concepts like mar sharing and moving away from individual car ownership
10:19 pm
and towards trends that benefit communities and cities so they're not argue. putting up this venture would be bad for europe a fairly just that the gains might be bigger elsewhere it's a good point but when can we expect to see this franco german consortium get down to business in charge dealt with if you will well those much awaited you subsidies are expected to be green lighted in october and a pilot factory of about top two with about two hundred employees is supposed to open up in france in the next month and the main goal is to get to production sites in france and germany up and running by five hundred twenty three do you have a car i do not they are expensive brand that is true a bicycle is much better blocking having a lock on cardio so they'll thank you for the presidents of france and italy have begun formal commemorations to mark five hundred years since the death of the renaissance genius leonardo da vinci the heads of state lead wreaths at the french chateau where leonardo spent his final years and they played up the bonds between
