posted its slowest growth in 17 years. and for more i'm joined by andrea hang in singapore under way are we just heard india has so far been reluctant to participate in china spent on road project could this summit be about china trying to persuade india to change its mind. i think if china wants to do that monica it has to be something of a slow downs india is very fearful of any potential detriment that china is reputed to have with other countries and as well as the territorial joblessness that china tends to display now adding salt of the war in india recently signed in joint deal with japan to develop colombo port in sri lanka all of that is more obvious strategic position rather than a political one to come to the belt and road so overall with india china needs to
6:47 pm
come a little bit cleaner about belt and road and india will be a willing partner if the terms and open where china certainly seems to try and increase sort of partnerships with some regions its economy has shown signs of slowing down factory output down to a 17 year low also due to the u.s. china trade war of course in how far is this summit a show of asia's power strength. what china knows and acknowledges that india is a formidable force to persuade and it does have a lot of work to do in that sense because india has its own agenda of being the next top rival economy in asia so what president xi is trying to do now is rather use troops and convey the message of it with a softer approach telling people to partner with them rather than to just view them as an elder sibling of sorts now on the other side the united states companies have

written a letter to the white house demanding an end to the trade war how such domestic opposition to donald trump's trade policy going down in asia. well people as with everywhere else in the well are divisive over who's winning the war but in asia people are more concerned with the effects and consequences on the tree of the trade war on its economies for example in over here in singapore the labor ministry recently posted data from the manufacturing sector look posting lower numbers and that's a result the direct result of the u.s. china trade tensions but the silver lining does exist monika. with the end of this saying that a lot of investments are being shifted to southeast asia as a piece of safe haven while treat tensions begin to ease all right andrea hang there reporting for us from singapore thank you so much andrea

german drugs and chemicals company by our house launched a p.r. offensive to counter the growing criticism over its weak killer roundup under the controversial key ingredient for states which is said to cause cancer a round of was a top seller of u.s. africa mikkel company monsanto and now belongs to buy a $63000000000.00 merger last year. buyer is making headlines once again following talks with politicians shareholders and environmental activists the company has conceded that it must make changes they promise to invest 5000000000 euros in research over the next 10 years to develop a more sustainable alternative to glyphosate in the p.r. campaign however the buyer is repeating it sorry i'm old mantra quite a site is safe when used correctly and it wishes to continue selling the product but the very existence of this p.r. campaign shows buyer is feeling the pressure of court cases in the us have done

particular damage to the company's image and their bank balance by a was sued for $2000000000.00 in my by a married couple who both got cancer and a further $13400.00 people have filed lawsuits their dented reputation is reflected in the share price which is almost halved in just one year shareholders are understandably disgruntled and they didn't hold back against c.e.o. of in about a month at the annual shareholders meeting and i pulled they fear the acquisition of months santa and with it the weed killer roundup could spell the end for environmental activists just as unhappy they pointed out the potential risks of life a site long ago. and for more i'm joined by a financial market correspondent in frankfurt a lot of people i'm happy shareholders in particular and also registration for life are safe in the e.u. is due to start later this year so is this p.r. campaign simply part of trying to get into the good books again.
6:51 pm
if it was it would be a nice try but i think it would be a poor regulator could be swayed by something like this and we did hear just now that buyers holding onto its mantra that life is saved if used correctly is safe and it says that and replying to the lawsuits as well but it's still a smart move and i think an expected move for many in the market and for many investors people around the world the buyer is now coming out at this moment with such a clear message that in future at least they hope to do better and to get away from life as age and it's also makes good business sense to clean up environmentally. merging markets are attractive markets and it could make a big difference there and yes she environment social governance becoming ever more important good marks on that for investors to even go into shares these days because we're talking about a new weed killer sort of within the next 10 years in the meantime by a facing

a lot of medication how big of a liability is months on to the baggage she brought to this maje. because i think most people say it would have been better if buyer had stayed away from it and not taken over monsanto we just heard that buyer now is worth less than a paid for monsanto the combined company it's a disaster for shareholders it's just a for the reputation and one still doesn't know what kinds of sums could come out and all these lawsuits people have calculated it could destroy buyer doesn't need to come that way but it's still totally unclear what this will cost buyer in the. thank you so much really bad for the profits of exchange for us. c o 2 is a climate killer and while flying around the world may be fun it's not good for the planets in fact at travel accounts for about 2 percent of manmade c o 2 emissions

plant is still very limited we can't make more than 100 milliliters a day and that makes the process very expensive. but this is only a demonstration unit in spain they've built a bigger reactor to test if the procedure is feasible. so this sort of reactor is 10 times bigger than the one at the e.t.h. syrup i mean. this proves that our solar technology is scalable. that's this means that we can make it bigger and eventually even me on an industrial scale which. scientists say a solar plant spanning an area of one square kilometer could produce 20000 liters of kerosene a day 1st plans have been made to launch a commercial system by 2025. the demilitarized zone between north and south korea has long been a symbol of war division but the recent opening of
