german steel makers to support calls off the wedding to india's top us steel that is almost twenty percent when it says it won't be split and will kill off six thousand jobs. is his business a. bell and welcome the trumpet ministration has today raised duties on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese imports from ten to twenty five percent says it will retaliate meanwhile trade delegations of both countries are in talks in washington that are being described as tense. the chance of breakdown of the talks has significantly increased now will bring in our correspondent in washington for the latest and have a look at how markets are taking its but first this report. it would prove to be an uphill climb for the chinese negotiators as talks resumed in washington just hours before new u.s. tariffs went into effect china's vice premier rejected the u.s. is rationale for the new duties its accusations that beijing had reneged on several
4:46 pm
points of agreement. or. i've come here in good faith i want a reasonable and a frank exchange of opinion with the u.s. side china believes in further tariffs is not a good way to solve our problems so it's not good for china nor is it good for the us nor does it help the world. few expected a breakthrough in thursday's talks and donald trump was keen to point out the positive side to state import tariffs. i happen to think that tariffs for a country. a very powerful you know with a piggy bank that everybody steals from including china we've been paying china five hundred billion dollars a year for many many years china rebuilt their country because of us this is the single hearing up for what could be a bruising trade conflict china showed that it has resources at its disposal officials say its spelt and road initiative can help offset the results of

a trade war with the u.s. and they're pointing to strong growth in the service sector. china's high end service exports are growing and competitiveness is gradually improving. with thursday's talks on able to stop the u.s. tariffs china isn't revealing what steps it will take next. so let's see how things standing in the markets and also in the negotiations and i'm joined by michael jackson from c.m.c. markets in london and our correspondent on the results who is standing by in washington and we start with you all about what are you hearing how the negotiations going. pretty silent right now but we know that the u.s. president was briefed last night by his negotiators and that both sides eventually agreed on carrying on with the negotiations a good sign if you will because they apparently believe that is that an agreement can still be reached now who's been very loudly and outspoken was the president
4:48 pm
himself on twitter this morning and he continues li stresses that the tariffs that were raised last night those will be only be paid for by the chinese side but economists in turn have been challenging that and they say that in the end of the day and eventually american businesses and the consumers will pay these terrorists in the united states as certain goods will become more expensive that are imported from china to the u.s. and those are predominantly consumer electronics among other products goods that are not affected though are every every goods that are currently on route to the united states so say on a container ship traveling to the u.s. those those goods are not affected yet and that means there's still some time left to find an agreement michael markets across the board investors seem not overly concerned about the first type of supplies that. you know what i think you see your correspondents lost pulling i think there is still
4:49 pm
a very small window where these terrorists can be avoided so for example if i can tell you the ship leaves the chinese pull it's. it could well arrive in two weeks time which means by the time a rise in the us those terrorists might well have been avoided i think at the moment inverses are looking on the bright side but you say the markets is slightly out there still down quite heavily on the week so we're not out of the woods yet. what are the main sticking points i'm hearing that the chinese side is reluctant to publicize the old details of a possible deal was that well yeah that's right reportedly in the run of the negotiations there have been clashes within the communist party in china there between hardliners and reformers and that led to a very late decision on the chinese president xi jinping to walk back certain parts of the agreement that were made in the beginning when quick progress was made and the key sticking points here are the question of intellectual property how that is
4:50 pm
tackle and also some certain restraints for american businesses in the united states so there were questions that eventually of how much of the final agreement would be made public and essentially the chinese are trying to publicly admit that intellectual property laws are flawed because it would also mean to admit that they have been wrong for quite some time. michael tension have been weighing on markets for a while now what will happen if the talks break down this week and. this brings it brings a lot of the prospects of a twenty five percent tariffs on another three hundred twenty five billion dollars the chinese goods that's going to be negative for the stock markets particularly on companies like apple and. intel chip makers who do an awful lot of business in china is going to drive up costs and erode these companies margins and essentially i think why own stock markets pretty much across the board the u.s.
