what's work and what isn't. and the object of desire less attractive south africa steps up the fight against rhino poachers. i mean 1st of all and it's your business sometimes it just takes a tweet financial markets have been heading north since donald trump tweeted that a trade deal with china could come any time that is if the time is right but the u.s. president probably won't meet with his chinese counterpart until the end of june and they've both just hiked a whole lot of tariffs. big juicy american steaks sizzling on the grill in shanghai it seems that regardless of donald trump's beef with the chinese over trade chinese consumers have no beef with american meat. but exhibitors peddling american foods at asia's biggest food fair say that what trump calls a squabble has been disastrous for business and. our business has him being

that impacted by the trade war by almost 30 percent. and the but as a company and we are impacted but we have options to go to $100.00 other countries but they are the biggest impact is going to is the consumer in china or the consumer in the u.s. they're both more impacted because of higher prices some u.s. exporters have decided that they can absorb some of the cost of the trade war in the short term in order to keep their markets but it's not a situation they'd like to see continue for long that there's a way to gets out that it's an all good thing you'll buy sometimes out sweets borne some of the increased cost and so have had dealers and sellers so you consumers won't have to pay 25 percent more for our products that's the one we're now hanging on here we still hope that that's the trade tension can be solved soon prices and that prices can get back to normal as soon as possible right if you don't see how

much out of place open with. american farmers keep out of trump's political base are increasingly frustrated with the failure of the 2 sides to resolve the dispute trump has promised around $15000000000.00 in aid to farmers affected by the chinese tariffs. so tung han joins us now from taipei and so as far as the chinese go couldn't they just boycott american products. well we do hear hard line nationalists saying that china can't buy anything from the u.s. because china has a weak hand in the traditional tit for tat way when it comes to raising tariffs probably won't be a great option for example with all the farm products u.s. soybeans are the most competitive on the global market plays of course trying to say that it wants to buy it from other countries for example like brazil but brazil
8:34 am
doesn't have enough good quality soybeans to make up the shortfall for the u.s. so it's really limited revenue for china so that probably reasonable when in chinese policy is to really think of what kind of retaliation they want to do because it can only goes that far before it backfires and i guess the juicy american steak just sounds so much better than a chinese steak doesn't it. well yeah well a lot of. chinese people they really like u.s. products just as we measure in the soybeans and us steak for sure so where does this dispute between the u.s. and china leave taiwan which is where you are i mean europe for example is stuck between a broken hot place because of its relations with both countries. well ban the trade war really leaves taiwan in
8:35 am
a very complicated situation because on the one hand the taiwanese government would like to see the us curbing china's influence because of democratic degeneration from china's infiltration by on the other hand there are so many enterprises that depend on the chinese market and at the same time the copper ration between the 2 sides so deeply intertwined that when the chinese economy is hit taiwan might also face the downturn so it's really hard for tolerance just pick a side so really quickly do you reckon this meeting is going to happen between trump and she next month or with we think it's very possible that it will happen and this time for this ask a lady in trade battle it probably would take that high level of interface vention to get the ball and discussion rolling again so thank you very much for your analysis from taiwan. this is ironic tech savvy san francisco is banning facial
