10:02 pm
globalization has to ensure prosperity for everyone for all classes in society. let is not be native to declare that is asian in general is going through a major crisis and this global channel is required for sure a collective thought from international organizations states companies civil society. in order to find and implement solutions weigel america meanwhile she made the case for close european ties as well as for more free trade or warning against rising economic nationalism it comes just a day before u.s. president double trouble is due to arrive in davos and it was a welcome break for the chancellor amid all of the political gridlock right here in berlin the german chancellor speech marked her return to the world stage after
10:03 pm
months of political limbo at home in germany her address focused on europe and its future one of her key messages the world's problems will not be solved by only salacious and protectionism instead she said nations must work together to face global challenges both economic and political. i will give the end of this not we know that there are international egotism we see nationalism on the rise and many states there's a polarizing atmosphere perhaps in many places people worry whether multilateralism can really solve people's problems. ellice fear you will be among them isn't. make you also stressed that europe must overcome challenges to better implement digital technologies risk being left behind she said germany lags behind some less developed nations despite its reputation for technical innovation.
10:04 pm
that means the task for the next four years will be to bring digital technology into our education system yes the government has to be organized digitally. and a better environment for startups has to be created so that we can make further progress so that we can remain a cradle of innovation the chancellor then turned her attention to defense she said europe should be more responsive to the problems of its immediate neighbors she called on european countries to cooperate more closely forging common security and foreign policies. that's. evil if you look at europe's immediate neighborhood and how many global conflicts are playing out on our doorstep we experienced this in twenty fifteen when globalization came to europe in the form of people not refugees home and when we hadn't done enough to counter the civil war in syria when we
10:05 pm
hadn't done enough to deal with so-called islamic state in iraq. the chancellor did not openly criticize u.s. president donald trump who will speak at the conference on friday but has strong warning against protectionism seem tailor made for washington's most recent global policy. and what did the world hear in those beasts speeches well it's over break it down i have political correspondent so i can yank you're at the big table with me and our brussels correspondent. is in brussels tonight gentlemen both of you welcome back let me start with you what did you make of president and his is call for action. pretty typical macross speech because it really wide arching from from extreme details which he has a pretty impressive grasp on to his visions not only for france but for europe and yes also the world and his speech was probably strongest when he talked about those
10:06 pm
vision saying that the framework for a new world order had to be multi lateral lism and also cooperation and that already the europeans had the tools in hand the solutions for the most pressing questions and that they just have to decide to make use of them and that they had to decide that not in the near future but now inside when you're at the top of the show i made reference to both of these leaders as europe's power couple a lot of people saying that today merkel and mccrone were they singing from the same hymn sheet very much so not necessarily in the same language of course president mccall speaking english for a lot of his speeches as well as french and merkel sticks to german on these occasions but the broad lines of what they're saying of course about re-energizing the european project about cooperation and multilateralism absolutely together merkel's a little less detailed than french account of thought perhaps that's explicit well given that she's got to be a bit careful she doesn't say anything that puts off the social democrats as she
10:07 pm
continues was that those tricky attempts to form a new coalition government here but medical really joining together the lines about security policy foreign policy the importance of multilateralism as i said doing something to improve things in africa to combat migration which in turn will come back populism and populist ten diseases because it's not just about economic isolationism also you know she's talking about the rise of the far right in quite a wide ranging speech from the chance that the i could speaking of economics spoke a lot about the need to boost the french economy let's take a listen part of what he said. i'm my first missy he said france is back france is back it's a cool for europe. because we'll never have any friends since this is without
10:08 pm
a europe instances hard said france is back everyone's talking about that quote max he said france is back at the core of europe was there with of france first in that message you know he draws on patriotism of course because the french like to be still but the gong still they are patriotic but just know what simon just mentioned he spoke in english i don't recall any french president really doing that with at an important speech in the past so that shows you he is not in the spirit of america first that's propagated by the trumpet ministration that represents a closed model that presents bilateral relationships he represents an open model of globalisation if it's done right multilateralism i just mentioned it so i would say the two could probably not be much farther apart. simon did you miss anything in until america holes speech what did she not say we have. talks about free
10:09 pm
trade in about combating of protectionism and nationalist thinking but what about germany's huge trade surplus you know there are many people around the world who are not happy with that it's not just don't know trump he thinks there are too many miss a decent b.m.w. on fifth avenue you if you ask a lot of people here in europe as well people in italy for instance they will say that you know germany's approach of boosting its own trade while you know encouraging its european partners to be very tough of fiscal discipline and monetary discipline in fact even the french are not that keen on it of course a president macro didn't address it head on today in that speech but you know was the answer to this big trade imbalance that germany has with the rest of the world he didn't hear the answer from angela merkel today but of course as i say she has got other things to worry about at the moment i don't think we've heard the word all steerage one time today during their speeches either i want to ask both of you simon and max do you see an irony here you've got merkel
10:10 pm
a conservative you've got mccrone a former investment banker and they were both praising the european social market model the social welfare state as a model for the world is there an irony there well you know they're both centrists that both people who believe that you've got to find the common ground and do the right thing for middle class people working class people you know and that's what they buy trump well yeah absolutely i don't know if it's ironic i mean it's the it's the shape of the new politics it's not new of course and this is this law in in in in the european consensus has been there for a while what would you say max. if you look at the history i mean there's a conservative she's not in the liberal and it's a long been a long tradition with the c.d.u. which is a christian democratic union to have their social values and looking at michael just as a former investment banker doesn't do his whole story just as he also was a very important part of the socialists in france so i would agree with simon what
10:11 pm
we're witnessing at the moment are intelligent politicians in europe realizing that the way globalization has been conducted in the past and that the challenges of the future for example with digitalisation are such that you need to do something to make sure you have most people on board in the european union otherwise what you're going to do is just feed populism our brussels bureau chief max often tonight in brussels and simon young here in berlin to both of you thank you it's not u.s. president donald trump is mourning turkey to stop its advance into northern syria or risk confronting american troops on the ground turkey's incursion began last saturday in the region of a freed kurdish militia which helped the u.s. to defeat islamic state in syria control offering but are considered by the turkish government to be terrorists. the shut to turn of yielded this evidence of the force that turkey has brought to be enough turkey's government is determined to press on
