a secret of but from the remarks of china's top position making body we know it's different this time the politics your role of china had a meeting yesterday and said that china has a chance to turn a crisis into an opportunity it's a very different tone from the previous talks china is now confident and ready for a longer fight on the surface china will keep sending good wills to break the deadlock of the trade talks but deep in there my understand that china must rely on its almost a demand potential including vast countryside to manage the new risks and new challenges now if you say turning a crisis into opportunity how is beijing hoping to achieve that. interestingly minutes after the meeting of the politburo was published took it to twitter he said that china was supposed to start buying our agricultural

products now knows they're doing so it's clear that farm products especially soybean is donald trump's weak point so even though the chinese media said china has bought 2000000 tonnes of soybean from the us but actually in fact those were all purchases and the number is far less so china can use it as a very a card that they have because it's a big problem for if you cannot have the american farmer support to win the 2020 and to buy or not to buy that. ok but of course at the same time this conflict is also weighing on chinese grows 2 different data out today just shows that factory output keeps sliding what kind of new measures is the chinese leadership going to propose to counter this economic slowdown. wall of the

the way so his presence on the trump has been critical of the fed raising rates. now here is what donald trump told reporters at the white house only yesterday. for are you are we are here we. go out of it or we are. going to stop. here i would like. you are. like me we want. that you don't want that or you know very kind of thing i think was a big. day yesterday fighting the noise of the helicopter behind him and for more i'm joined by our financial market correspondent in frankfurt as he does trump wants a rate cut does he have a point will a rate cut today make him happy. and monica i think president trump is
8:36 am
desperate to get cut this way or that way and the irony is that he may actually get one not because the fed reserve is going to be swayed by history to what he says but because of the trade was unleashed by him and as far as the rate cut that is concerned he may not get a big one as as big as he would like because the last time if i could put things in perspective when the fed reserve actually initiated and wanted monetary easing with a 50 basis point cut was very bad in during the time of recession back then the economy was in dire straits and things are much better right now all right so let's talk a little bit about the economy does the u.s. economy need a rate cut or would it harm it perhaps who will the jury is still out on that i mean those in support point to sluggish inflation which has been below
8:37 am
fed target despite solid hiring despite a rise in wages and they also point to perhaps the need for an insurance policy what if they call me worsens with all the trade wars going around against it this is that big the u.s. economy is pretty solid at 2 point one percent growth rate and also consumer spending which is a critical part of the diet g.d.p. 70 percent is quite solid so clearly there is no foot. in place there but eventually i think the market is pricing for a 25 basis point cut today all right and of course we'll know more about that particularly the federal reserve's decision later today i'm sure to pandey reporting from frankfurt thank you so much for this. more overseas visitors travel to britain during the 1st 3 months of $29000.00 compared with a year ago according to the office for national statistics but their spending fell

8:41 am
threatening reciprocal actions and adding in typical trump fashion i've always said american wine is better than french wine. that might be a matter of taste for the french it's all about business the agricultural minister let off steam on a national t.v. show. sure it is absurd to say you tax google apple facebook and amazon now we tax your wines is completely morani we tax the technology companies because they reap enormous profits in our country millions of billions of euros and there's no reason for them not to pay taxes why in exports are a completely different thing. it is unclear how much the us tax on wind will actually cost the french economy if it ever came to that experts say it's mostly makers of cheaper wines that might feel the pinch as their fathers won't find buyers in the us as for the country's best vintages they should be fine. but
