could become a dream team. the french government itself a shareholder and peugeot has already given the green light and this is good news this is good news for you because you know that we have to face the challenges of electric cars. and to face that kind of challenges you need to have champions who will live. the combined company would have turnover of over $180000000000.00 euros and it would have around $410000.00 employees and making $9000000.00 cars each year would put it in a different league. after folks toyota and the renault nissan alliance chrysler together with peugeot citroen would be the 4th largest car maker in the world. workers reaction to the deal were mixed. up with well there's already been one merger with opel and now this will bring jobs so it will be

all deaths and arrests. let's get more on this from the man on wall street conflicting news there about the u.s. china trade deal how much did it spook investors. well i'm not sure if the trade talks were the main reason why we traded to the downside here at the last day of october we also got some weak economic and new was from the industry sector in the broader area of cargo then also the federal reserve meeting from the day prior where jerome powell pretty much hinted that we won't see any more rate cuts anytime soon i guess those were probably the main reasons but you mentioned the conflicting signals that we get from the trade talks on one side we got reports from private conversations from chinese officials that they're doubtful about a long term deal between the 2 biggest economies in the world and then on the other
side donald trump and tweeting that there will be a signing of the phase one deal pretty soon so pretty conflicting environment overall as court in new york thank you. and now to some of the other business stories making news mall the owner says it's taken a $4500000000.00 hit on its investment in the cigarette maker jewel to paint nearly $13000000000.00 for a 35 percent stake in the vaporing firm only last year but the deal has gone sour thanks to a crackdown on v.p. by u.s. regulators boeing says cracks have been found in up to 15 of its popular 7 $37.00 planes after global inspections 2 of quantas jets are reportedly affected but the airline has so far rejected calls to ground its entire $737.00 fleet saudi arabia expects its budget deficit to widen to 6.5 percent of gross domestic product next year that to about $50000000000.00 that's from 4.7 percent this year government
income has been hit by no oil prices as the pro-democracy protests continue official data confirms that hong kong is now in recession gross domestic product tranq by about 3 percent in the last quarter months of unrest have piled pressure on an economy already reeling from the u.s. china trade with. now you'd think vanilla would be fairly common it at flavor to so many products ice cream chocolate and coffee for example but most producers rely on artificial vanilla flavor because the real stuff is hard to come by that's why prices are astronomical and that last to be good news to the farmers who grow dim places like tanzania but it's anything but easy money. vanilla is delicate and very valuable to harvest pods of the highest quality it takes a lot of care and
a lot of time so she was. here on pemba island in tanzania has only been grown since the 1990 s. many farmers here switch to vanilla hoping to capitalize on booming demand for the fragrant spice and the high prices how mighty how do you who cares for more than 7000 plants he has to protect them from harmful insects as well as from thieves when the harvest season approaches. the time from planting to harvesting depends on the quality of the soil. if the soil is good it will take 3 to 4 years to start producing. any. but it also depends on the seedlings you want to give me if you live big looking guy. vanilla grown on plantations has to be pollinated artificially and. it's a difficult task but on pemba island there are now $250.00 vanilla farmers. this
is farmers slim health fence entire annual production it's about half a kilogram that in the name i have already started benefiting last year i made over 250000 shillings or $110.00 u.s. dollars and this year i'm expecting over 500000 shillings. we'll keep earning more money in the coming years. and. the world market price for the spice has exploded from about $30.00 u.s. dollars per kilogram a few years ago to around $600.00 u.s. dollars now. this is also due to bad harvests and drought and that's something the farmers in pemba worry about think join together in a cooperative to protect their crops. we do not discriminate between our farmers that we give the seedlings to all our members. but if one does not take
care of them we do not give them more and the people in the year see what you have done as you are all the farming activities through our agricultural officers. everything that is produced on these plantations and goes to britain they're a cosmetics company uses a lot of vanilla in its products for now it's willing to pay a lot for this rare commodity. now it is this time of year so bear with me here this halloween season is going to the dogs as more and more people in the united states have turned to address their pets up in costumes according to the national retail foundation almost $30000000.00 americans have gone to buy the strangest and spookiest halloween pet costumes. one dog turns into a buzzy be another into it glitzy pumpkin. there's even
