secrets while ways message to the united states we can play the blame game two hours before the announcement the backdrop to what's becoming an ever escalating dispute while waves chief financial officer among wangs you leaving her house in canada for an appearance in course she's been detained in the country since december accused of helping her company violates u.s. sanctions on iran she claims the arrest violated her rights and is politically motivated. while ways to sedition to sue the american government to a ready high cost conflict the u.s. effort to get allies to shun the firm threatens to bar the company from major markets and puts billions of dollars of investment in super high speed five g. networks out risk it also adds tension to an ev ready complicated trade relationship between the world's top two economies. and let's talk about the trade
12:33 am

12:34 am
some hope of finding common ground by the end of march also economies say that even if a deal gets done the education will prove challenging and disruptive sense that will require major adjustments here in the u.s. and in china's current trading partners as they lose the hearo their force the new york thank you. now over to europe for the european central bank has decided to delay any interest rate hikes until least next year in a bid to revive the struggling euro zone economy the bank decided to launch a fresh round of cheap loans e.c.b. president mario draghi also announced the bank had lowered its euro zone growth forecast for the coming years it expects just one point one percent expansion this year. prosecutors in the netherlands are said to be investigating dutch bank i n g reports connecting it to a massive money laundering scheme out of russia and some of europe's biggest banks have been linked to the scheme the so-called troika laundromat is alleged to have
12:35 am
channeled billions of euros from russia into the european banking system through a little way in lender the reports are based on leaked documents the scheme is named after the russian bank troika deal log which is alleged to be behind the transfers. now as i mentioned there i n g is just one of a number of banks across europe tied to money laundering allegations the so-called troika laundromat is just one of several alleged schemes the list of banks accused of money laundering is a who's who of european lenders at the top is don sco bank denmark's national bank which admitted that much of the two hundred thirty billion dollars flowing into its tiniest only a branch from two thousand and seven to fifteen was likely suspicious so how does it happen even member nations are in charge of policing their own banks but there's no e.u. wide regulator and since the banks can freely transfer money to each other it takes only one unscrupulous bank to inject money into the entire system and where does
12:36 am
the money go it could be hidden in an offshore bank account or used in a criminal or a licit enterprise so what can be done to stop it for more on that i'm joined now by nick a lifer own he's a senior fellow at the peterson institute for international economics in washington d.c. . you've written recently about this very issue tell me what's currently in place for a you member states to stop money laundering. just points are the principles of the global level of recommendation from suitable financial action task force and then there is european unity station which says some rules are converged between two different member states but the enforcement of the rules are composed of banks. cation of fines if something goes wrong this is almost entirely at the level of individual member states and as you indicated before the system is only as strong as the weakest link in to change so we have twenty eight member states i
12:37 am
could search one is a single market is there is only one that fails in their duty isn't the system is not secure and our visa is more than one to problems so enforcement the national level then what needs to be done if that's not working. so there has to be some effort to break to vicious circles that maintain some member states in this week's situation where there was dennis to be unable to enforce a mail on time when you don't bring legislation and the easiest way to do that is to set up one critical aspect of the enforcement process i was a european the whole not all aspects of course are police or prosecutors so you take a community when it's unfolds as will remain international level but what it's called is a jargon a mauser provision on time when you don't bring supervision which is making sure that banks and also institutions types of programs to detect and we port suspicious transactions so this can be established at the york and levels are precedents for
12:38 am
this who probably need to creation of a new agency but that's not just of the world they measure of course the c.e.o. you regulate the need for this is this politically feasible specially given member states national interests in their own banks frankly compared to others things that have happened for examples of creation of a banking union where different kind of banking supervision focal credential supervision how do you transfer to the european level at the european central bank this is compartment easier so i don't see any major but it's good obstacles of course as usual the national agency is in charge of this task a famous for prevention defends their prerogatives defend their turf that's normal but a minute is the security issue for europe i mean there's a lot of money coming in. of course part of the broader relationship with russia so i think the program should be ready to tackle that the level of political leaders and i don't see any major obstacle for progress to be made there right away and see what happens they left rome with the peterson institute for international economics

12:40 am
and it would be a very difficult situation above all because the volumes exported are very high and now there's a lot of uncertainty about what's going to happen. last year greenhouses and spain's amaria region delivered some two hundred and eighty five thousand tons of produce to britain. and farmers that grow exclusively for the british market here huge losses after practice it. the dakotas they. did this fight as supply is. doing well and they have to look for the new markets and do. displays of the oil that exposed us and is not easy. with just three weeks to go before bracks said it's still unclear how much extra time will be needed for deliveries or whether the produce will still be fresh when it reaches british tables and many farmers here worried that could put their future and jeopardy.
