a huge inheritance tax spill the leaf expects to pay 10800000000 dollars in taxes reportedly the largest ever amount in south korea died last year. german chancellor angela merkel and chinese premier li cage shown are co-chairing talks that are held between the 2 countries every 2 years the meeting which is online will focus on climate change and the coronavirus pandemic economic cooperation will also be high on the agenda particular particularly as china has one of germany's most important trading partners but talks could be overshadowed by a number of issues including beijing's treatment of the weaker muslim minority in shin jiang its territorial claims in disputed south china sea are another point of friction. germany's economics minister peter said he expects today's meeting will be productive but also anticipated some tough discussions ahead.
9:14 am
he will have very constructive but also very frank talks on the economic cooperation between germany and china has grown continuously in recent he is benefiting both peoples but we still have many areas where there's no equal treatment both ends. and that's why we have to reduce this discrimination and so that all companies have the same rights and i have already debated many aspects of this with my chinese colleagues this week and this will also be discussed that was well enough but the moment it was on. for more on the sign of german talks i'm joined now by d w chief international editor richard walker richard these consultations they take place every 2 years but they are far from routine what are the critical points on today's agenda. you know what terry these
9:15 am
a really wide ranging dialogues that have been going on don't just today but also the last few days between the various ministries of the 2 governments is really you know discussions going on in almost every area of policy but you know every single time in these dialogues business is a key priority you just heard from the business minister there you know china is a massive market for german exporters so that is always a priority but one thing to see that's the particularly high on the agenda is climate change where the world is looking to those climate talks the u.n. climate talks coming up in scotland later this year and the europeans and the americans really want the chinese to set more ambitious targets to cut emissions particularly in the relatively short term so we'll be watching closely if anyone went on that the relations between china and the west's richard have deteriorated in recent months or are these consultations an opportunity to get things back on track. well i'm sure the some on both sides would want to see that but the
9:16 am
list of tensions is so long you've mentioned a few of them already in a human rights in changing in hong kong threats of invasion against taiwan you know aggressive behavior in the south china sea and the list goes on and on and on and in fact the european union impose sanctions on some chinese officials for the 1st time in decades just recently over a human rights abuses in shin jank then the chinese side responded with sanctions of its own against various european institutions and against some lawmakers including for example a member of the european parliament from angela merkel's own party now all of this is kind of contributing to the feeling among some critics that this kind of consultation between the 2 governments a bit of a throwback to another era when the west hoped that you know through this kind of dialogue it could lead to a sort of opening up of chinese politics and society that simply isn't happening but i think one thing that is really interesting to watch going forward is the
9:17 am
position of the green party they're riding high in the polls and they are very critical of china and their candidate to succeed angela merkel has said that she wants to foster a politics of dialogue but toughness against china says can be really interesting if she gets into power in some form how they strike that that balance between dialogue like this and toughness which could take different forms interesting indeed our chief international editor richard walker thanks. the european super league debacle calls to huge uproar among fans especially in england where 6 premier league clubs initially joined the breakaway league before withdrawing now to prevent future defections the premier league is looking at some major reforms here's more from t.w. correspondent charles chelsea pill in manchester. could this set the ball to
9:18 am
english it will be to see united of manchester's youth academy award that training for a club doing things differently. if the united at both owned and run by the fans. who are just ordinary people. who actually love football and i've got a passion for football it's not a business all of the money's made goes back into the football club back into the community. in order that we can try and you know climb the leaks. and continue to make a statement to say there's a different way let's see united was set up in 2005 in protest against the takeover of premier league club manchester united by an american billionaire they're now seeing a surge of interest in their membership by roughly 20 percent over the last week alone it's driven in large part by the actions of 2 clubs just a few miles away manchester united and manchester city are among 6 english clubs
9:19 am
who last week signed up to a new european super league which abruptly collapsed on to outrage from fans so many it's a watershed moment. just the money grabbing it's on by billionaires who know nothing of the game don't care for the fans don't care about grassroots football in the u.k. to demise is pretty nice to be out of and is pretty terrible but falls along an. excessive incremental. vulture capitalism this place become a business today zionist for a long time. so it's not trying to do in terms of football. but we just never know when subsaharan is where you know they they haven't got the clubs at best it's all about the money for. the super league debacle has supercharged schools for change here with everything from the ownership structure of clubs like manchester united to regulation now being publicly debated and many are looking to germany as a model there's a growing chorus of voices calling for english football to emulate germany's 50
9:20 am
plus one model that would give found the majority voting right giving them the final say is now transcending football and gaining political traction think it's something not everyone can unite behind at the moment we have a base is a basic interest of this board protects clubs. i'm so i think that's the reason for the for the for a slogan be it so popular the government is now running a family review into english football with the german model among the reforms being discussed but there's skepticism meaningful change is possible in the meantime fan and clubs like f.c. united of forging their own path proof that an appetite for fun that is growing i think it's. time for change. and events of the last week of just demonstrate it done spites me fortunately it was more than 50 plus $100.00 . and i think there is an opportunity now for the supporters groups to continue to
9:21 am
do the right light yet so many in england the idea of being for the fans can feel like a thing of the past to united it's a model for the future what i can. spring in curing mcquire here he's a football finance expert at the university of liverpool in the u.k. thanks for being with us so fans are demanding more rights in determining how england's premier league operates what's so appealing about the german ball i think it's it comes across as very simple model english fans have always been impressed by the by the organization of german fans they were ability to work together their ability to achieve change in issues such as monday night football and making sure that didn't take place so. there is a that is an affection from from english fans towards the the german approach to
9:22 am
football that it is much more than orientated and that's why it's had so much support to date in terms of these proposals. what reforms do you think are needed in the way english football is run. well i only don't think the 50 plus one model would work because it would involve giving significant compensation to existing shareholders so therefore i think we should be focusing in terms of governance perhaps having fans being able to appoint non-executive directors so that if they were being catered to boardroom level it could be that the government could introduce legislation to it so that fans would have some form of the share which is a effectively a nuclear option giving them and the opportunity to veto significant decisions such as the name of the club whether the club can resign from only and moving the club stadium to to another to another location and you know decisions which show which will impact upon the fans and for many generations going forward it's
9:23 am
a football ownership and how it's run this is a very powerful deep pockets to. be a group of people how much appetite for change is there among those who run football in england. and there's not as far as the owners are concerned most football clubs are seen as trophy assets some obscene as potential investments which can be bought run through few years and then sold at a profit so as far as the owners are concerned they are very much keen on preserving the status quo and move what they want to do as much as possible was to remove the risk from paul because there are 6 seats big clubs in the premier league who do about an existing financial advantage over the office and their main concern is that if they don't qualify for the champions league that will give them a financial hit so they put their decision was to simply remove the risk of not
9:24 am
qualifying for the champions league by having a type of football where winning football matches wasn't important in terms of generating revenue and profits all this discussion we're having it was pushed forward by the collapse of the european super league what do you think the consequences will be of that effort to create the european super league going forward i think has been a breakdown of trust as far as the football authorities are concerned those clubs who were members all fit of the super league which was effectively a franchise organization and the fact that they were also operating at the same time in theory on behalf of both the premier league and you a fact has left that credibility in tatters we've already seen fallout to boardroom level where manchester united chief executive ed wood he's now leaving the club and they certainly seems to be a greater appetite from the government in the u.k. at least for some form of structural reform in terms of the governance and
