still, france, spain malta, stumbled in grief and u. k. all pulse in europe have chinese, honestly not a mississippi is a sign ologist, an author who lived in china for 6 years and observed the events around the new silk road development with a critical she thinks the italian government was trying to create an economic advantage for itself, but under estimated the plans political dimensions, something recon knowledge, men of this political project. why a member of the g 7 had a great propaganda value when you're in china itself and k propagandistic, went out and for the new silk grow. this quite clearly an enormous project and like the projects in history in china and the usa, and that's of charity, they office doing their own income and if you change them and
it's obvious that china is trying to gain of global foothold through key infrastructure investments such as support for us in the north east of italy could also become an important logistical center for the chinese francesco, but easy as a business man who's currently planning to bring a new investor on board to build a 2nd container terminal entry as estimate of the minimum investment necessary to further expand to have reasonable container terminal is $300000000.00 euro. we are ready to discuss with other factors if they have any interest to further develop. again, using that,
that we have been discussing for a long time with chinese interest in the form of 3 asked a set to expand further until now it has only handled 790000 container ships a year by comparison. whereas handles 6 times as much cargo. francesco parties, bird has been involved in the transportation business in europe and the rest of the world for almost 200 years. along with his son, he's the 8th generation to run the business. the company has survived 2 world wars, but today's challenges are just as great. and now you need the roots to asia to stay competitive. he says, it is not that we are giving preference to chinese business partners rather than it is that china has grown and, and is the trading partner and number one in the world. and if we are involved in
logistic which is connected to international trading, you cannot simply close your eyes in front of what has developed you try to participate. so this is their simple answer, easy and his son have invested in china themselves and make 2 thirds of their turnover with asian customers. in spite of their old european traditions, they have long become a part of the new chinese silk road unit is not anymore. the center of the word is not no time. so we have to take up to neat is where they arise and, and where we find and specially where we find people who are willing to share the same values that are not only make money, but any have that with some values that are important. if the
problems with the porter is trina could be an opportunity off because china handler to make investments, of course, and it really need 7th, anytime boys more to be done or the remain the same time, we have to be very careful when we make any deal with china on the left got to call a chain up economy. power is vast and can be overwhelming to committee for the bus gets out of the me. i trust check is waiting for visitors from china. a busy year for that might see you holidays july. i'm like a bridge between 2 countries and between 2 people. not gonna gonna gonna konami's
necessarily. and i happen to small chinese really want to come to greece because they want to learn a lot about the culture of each in greece. the mythology that history and he, he knows, you know, i've got to know that i believe it for the small hole. that's why they love greece . so much lesser to the 2 countries are similar. they both have a lot of history. i don't know. can i get the roots of the eastern world or in china? these are the roots of the western world or greece. what it is long before the corona virus hit, it was always busy. around the foot of the acropolis, chang had groups every day. the number of chinese tourists in greece had been growing rapidly, and some 800000 were expected this year. now because of the corona virus pandemic, the stream has dried up completely. tourism is an integral factor in the new chinese silk road. petros chang says, tourists from china bring money and often become long term investors
will make up that they sell, but you have to go over, go don't, or you don't have a 1st. we have to wait until the corona virus is over. and as i want it then greece will need capital and china has capital. you can engine edwin, there are sure you cannot. so i knew for chinese state really has a lot of money and it wants to invest and agree on china has come to greece as a friend via the, not the way the west colonized asia or african. and he said, you know me, because i see the chinese approaches then we here and that a, we invested, you know, and it's a win win situation for us both. she's lucky and they want to get me. the real estate lobby is profiting from the deal with the chinese more than most other sectors to attract foreign money. the greek government started issuing so called golden visa
in 2013. so well, this is the apartment on the 5th floor. welcome to this lovely apartment in the heart of downtown athens. it's surrounded by some of the best areas, in essence, if used to be with 2 bedrooms, and now we are fixing another a 3rd bedroom. i'm an extra bathrooms. this is the living room. nice and spacious, fully furnished. there are 3 bedrooms, like this would be more proud to call for your family or even if it's not in your family, that doesn't office space. the kitchen is fully equipped and we are going to have the kitchen here with a small island and the very will be the next phase. they can use the way they want . here, i'm going to show you the balcony. it comes with a balcony and has
a lovely view of enjoy your 1st cup of coffee of the day. you can have barbecue here and you can eat like myspace is rebates and making get all the space and song and the welcome in the few weeks. not the most money for them. okay. greece has issued 6000 golden pieces to the chinese and the last 5 years and sold a lot of property to golden things the, the real estate race. tyneesa came in grades. they were the 1st foreign investors that they left their money here that they paid for the property because after the creek financial crisis, after it started 2008, i can say bought the 2000 pounds because we told no one was buying like all the properties were falling down, most of the chinese owners don't want to appear in front of the camera. some have
come to europe for political reasons. others are cautious towards the media. it's an open secret that money laundering and corruption are also an issue. of the e. u has sharply criticize the program. the clients that we have are usually from the rapidly merging chinese middle class. they come here because they want to secure a future. in europe, they want, they give their children the opportunity to live here. they want to give themselves for june and the to retire here. a lawyer in athens puts us in touch with a client from shanghai who is in the middle of a legal dispute over her flat assets. her whole family laboriously saved up for the 290000 year apartments. investment in greece and freedom of travel within the entire thing. an area for the whole family sounds attractive,
even in times of the corona virus. then another. i like the greek, whether in lifestyle, greece is a country with a long history. with this visa, i can buy a piece of this lifestyle. there are a lot of chinese making this investment, including in my circle of friends. golden visas remain in high demand. though the corona virus pandemic has damp in the real estate market with significantly fewer visas issue due to travel restrictions and a temporary suspension of the residence by investment program. unlimited travel and the globalized world where you can commute between shanghai in athens, have been put on hold. but the estate agents don't think it spells the ends of this lucrative market. i think that after the recovery that we are expecting soon, the chinese clients are going to come here and keep buying properties like they did
before. and as you said, the chinese middle class is rapidly expanding. so i don't see any reason why this may stop in and increasingly globalized world. the fish market in athens is still bucking the trend and dealing mainly and locally caught produce the most goods come to europe from asia through the suez canal. he, you citizens profit enormously from cheap chinese imports, but a sudden shortage of personal protective equipment during the corona virus pandemic
has highlighted europe's dependence on asian invoice that, you know, to start that fabric of the machine was worse than the world forgot to be almost we used to give their goods and exploit chinese workers. but also i know as we were doing that, the chinese when learning from us, from them and starting to do it. they have overtaken us in many areas of technology that up and down because and that's just how china's new silk robe got going. investments in ports, bridges, or rows all serve to bring goods to customers. the us is still the use most important trading partner. but trade with china has tripled in the last 20 years
in china has been investing in the board to raise since 2008 and became the majority shareholder there in 2016. it's the perfect gateway to europe. over the last few years, the chinese have turned periods into the biggest port in the mediterranean and they're planning to make it the biggest port in europe, pledging $600000000.00 euros of additional investments in the next few years. your music i can make i was born and raised in parade me up for you. i love him of amendment. i have felt connected with the sea and since i was small before you me cream, this place will be on now is important to medical meadows. not only for its charm
and atmosphere now it's to be only because it's a park with open access to the c particle and the supposed to value. and because it was managed to keep it that way, the marcia tracy honest ozzy, a francis khaki believes that the old port area belongs to the cities residence and has long been campaigning to get them access to it again. she's the left wing, threes of parties, maritime policy spokeswoman that is skeptical about the chinese commitment. she believes massive investments by aging would also have political consequences for her country or both that he did to some of the consequences do not attend on the government. that is in power and accept them with the same mix up. and i'll be, for example,
when the you want to pass certain resolutions regarding china's expansion in the south china sea. we have a left wing of wind here that had its doubts about us and you'll be skipped. the must be you member grease broker, political taboo by signing with the chinese. grease has also been silent about aging actions in hong kong. money, francis scott, he says makes you dependent. she's particularly worried about the use divisions over china. but the realization that europe has to speak to china with one voice is slowly gaining ground. i think, i mean, it's not yet reached a consensus on how to deal with china. what it's added to more than china is when making the europe has no clear analysis. china is going to behave from
western countries and is doing particular economic policies in europe. no longer has the tunes that china has, namely update to enterprise. and china is clearly using these to be the career crisis has highlighted, europe's lack of cohesion. even italians like ricardo rocky also felt that china exploited the divisions by sending aid to italy. europe eventually came up with best program, but small businesses like ricardo's belt, this help came to way because you know, when you call me to be one, i would really like to a seen
a united europe is everyone had predicted a strong union with funded mental coordination was something quarterly and i'm interested in that i would have liked to have seen those with more opportunities to help the other a true year of the meno k. that what in the end, it didn't work out that way. animals. everyone closed their borders and said he was a big wash, your own dirty laundry at home. when he's particular about the william garza that really showed us that we can't talk about a single year. so the most that i took it from them, it was a lot to deal with. anyone who comes to tour yes, can still experience the charm of the old hapsburg monarchy. 100 years ago. the port city was a trading house to eastern europe. the iron curtain interrupted billings for decades. now the city wants to return to its former glory and is hoping the
chinese will help us when the silk road agreement was signed in march 2019 tree. se was at the center of attention with northern italy was slated to become a major trans shipment center for chinese export presented to augustine, who is head of the port authority. thanks china's interest in tree, yes is a group of it's growing significance. b c, but based on europe is growing a lot old base nations are very easily accessible by, by the part of the as they saw. you know, i think it is very simple. if you look at a map, you see that if you pass through 3 s the and you go to hungary, to germany, to say you arrive foster van busing from the northern arrange port.
the city is investing even more in its rail network than in the fort itself. built over 100 years ago. it's direct links to eastern europe are still there. they just have to be upgraded. but 3 is also at pains to emphasize that although it welcomes investments from china, it has no intention of selling off the port lock, stock, and barrel. what was there for years ago? 2 years ago, only a problem, a matter of transport became a geopolitical issue. now, if you said the port authority, you say ok this part of it that it, there is no more my territory. and this was done in increasing. this is not what is happening here. below here is the port authority. the president is italian . i am directly govern my my minister, so you know, we don't sell and we will not be strategic, but the report the port city on the adria attic see,
has suddenly found itself in the midst of a global trade war. every investment the chinese make in europe angers the u. s. and exacerbates the standoff between the us and china. francesco perisi has decided on a partner to help tree s to expand not china, but a european investor. the port of hamburg, he stresses that this is a purely economic calculation. but he doesn't deny that political factors also played a role. charisse, he remembers the cold war and is worried about any new confrontation. this control, the patient situation ended. it was of another cold war and a method of concern for me, person. and for my business in general, for me in general, also as a, as a, as a citizen of the european union. we can see that international trade for sure,
a bridge we can see that to be helpful to keep them unpaid fees. the debate about the role europe will play and the trade war between the u. s. and china is nothing new and is not limited to the economy. you federal coaches, i hope to some european leadership, because if not in europe, risks become in china usa or up can be the 3rd key player in the global arena. i hope that's what europe decides today when you spoke of the trigger. the fall. politicians in rome are also gradually turning against china. human rights violations haven't been a reason to cut down on business so far. but worldwide criticism is growing.
these 3 members of parliament are part of a cross party alliance on china. they want to see a tougher stance towards beijing. when you make an economic agreement with a country that doesn't respect the human rights, you are dealing with human rights because it means that you don't care much, we need euro p, m need to div, and not that single country need. so europe is already too small to add up real relationship. we china all together. but one single count, we can't have a strong relationship with china. that's sure. so if you go in that interaction alone as italy, it's sure that you will lose that relationship. so i believe that is the most
important mistake. above and beyond party politics be the left wing, centrist, or conservative. what unites these politicians is the worry that europe is not speaking to china with one voice. because china is focusing on us. so we want to focus on china because china has a very strong agenda with using any kind of energy and signer g to expand its influence over all the countries of the western world. and therefore, we must have an agenda to what is the kind of investment that you can have all the kind of trade, authentic operation because we, the country which is the same way prevents any sort of corporation. even now, when we are talking, china is totally obscure and is the country of censorship, about the real origin,
nature and consequences of europe is now coming to realize that china is no longer a purely economic power, but also a political one. meanwhile, the dock workers union in paris has come to terms with its new chinese bosses and is trying to negotiate workers' rights as best it can be video with with other staff over the last 10 years. the, our experience with the chinese has been that they only negotiate as hard as they can and demand as much freedom. but if you set your limit up and if they come up against a strong structure, like i said on a trade union, what they respect. so they accept our limits supportive for race will remain under chinese control until 2052 when the lease is. although it could of course be
extended. evie up i think china already has enormous influence and i don't think it needs any more than just as a citizen of teresa, i would like to return to return to greece again after the 3rd party youth has expired. the 2019 agreement between italy and china has caused a lot of fuss. but now there are other investors who are pushing ahead with the development of the court of tree. yes, many entrepreneurs however, have other worries right now, we will have to see what the call will be on the world trade because this is still something, no one has a clue about so for now, italy is still part of the silk road. even though no chinese money has flowed into 3, yes, so far i always say what we did and began that passed away. she grew over back
to the initiative, but it is the opposite. the accept. what be on the element is some our places on the maritime seek, wrote that they needed as an idea of development. natalie, money. every chinese arrived with fans. and they, we have our ideas. we know what that can be. meanwhile, mechanical ratchet, the man who engineered the deal in the 1st place, believes that the fear of china is totally exaggerated and could have disastrous consequences or italy. my forecasts because of your politics misunderstanding. i think the likely scenario that i have now is that italy as flows down on the corporation with asia slows down on the corporation with the china slows down on the development of technology lows down on the development of infrastructure barson model way these which are all the things that we need that we do not to do by
ourselves. and so italy would fall back into the middle age. she now, from the thoughts of marcelina had long pre programmed prestige medical economic projects over sheeting paying is ready. thinking about 2049 in china is doing exactly what they want to do. a lot of pay is now they have such an almost, you know, make power in the world to natural for them to want to have a voice in the world. they are clearly saying, we know what to influence the world. so what we can do for internet mando ah, the news
american secretary of state and a blinker was in craig last week. his name apparently is to offer words and comfort and support for the country. after washington said, master in huge numbers goes to his border. my guess is really crazy as far as the nature of what does he get out of the visit? and what was conflict zone? 90 minutes on d w. o. the news was right in front of them that they're all for this one moment. then suddenly, we agreed to postpone the or didn't the games that tokyo with $22021.00 strong off course during the qualifying ground. not these for sports heroes.
actually it was a flap in the face. but now we just have to fight their mobilizing superpowers. i'm fired up and ready count down during walk down the walking go to tokyo, georgia july 19 dw, the ah, this is steve. we news and these are our top story. us, comedian bill cosby has been released from prison after pennsylvania supreme court overturned his sexual assault conviction. the court ruled that a prior agreement with a prosecutor barred cosby from being charged a comedian was convicted and jailed in 2018 for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman. out of the state the last german troops stationed in afghanistan have arrived.
