lation is 83 per cent last month. official say it experts believe it is even higher . you take a look at how people are coping galloping price. of course, over. welcome to the program. europe's double digit inflation is top of the agenda . as you finance ministers gather and luxembourg blocks record high energy prices, the primary driver of european inflation are expected to come in for its close scrutiny. consumer prices have sort since the beginning of russia warn you. grain and germany is decision to set aside 200000000000 euros as part of a gas capping mechanism is also seeing increasing criticism. right? that's get more in this from our correspondent christine montoya in brussels. christina, tell us more about the friction that has been on the rise among the officials when it comes to this gigantic german, a package. that's right, it is
6:46 pm
a gigantic package. chris is the biggest, are in the european union effectively. what this means is that german businesses will qualify. we'll, we'll be getting a bigger subsidy and then their business peers within the rest of the european union and thus getting a competitive advantage being given a competitive advantage. and that has strong criticism or from other member states who feel that it, it is unfair in a sense that some countries like germany and others who, who have the scope to go bigger on these rescue packages are effectively pursuing national interest at a time where you would want that solidarity that this is damaging to the solidarity it leaves. maria drug, for example, was one of those voices critical. germany's plan. he said that it was simply unfair to, to member countries who just couldn't do as much who couldn't, who couldn't borrow as much, for example, heaven into countries like italy who couldn't afford to give such a big stimulus package that european commission for it's part has said that it's
6:47 pm
going to be looking at to see what the impact of germany is. 200000000 stimulus package will do in terms of competition with in the u christine. but is this a disparity that you're talking about? you know differently, you countries being a different positions to, in order to support their economies, isn't the spirit is possibly addressed by the windfall tax, or which the e e wants to charge analogy companies with. well that is an attempt, chris, but if we, if we look at the numbers, you'll see how i it doesn't work effectively enough to, to level the playing field. i mean the ears when for tax we'll aim to raise about 140000000000 jurors. right. put that next a journalist, germany loans 200 years, 200000000000 years and you can see how, how that doesn't add up at all. because at 140000000000, for example, has to be distributed among all the member states. so you can see how that is difficult to do, added to that you've got to look at the inflationary pressures. i mean, you've got some countries, italy among them, for example, literally facing recession over that. so this one for tax isn't going to be enough
6:48 pm
. the other challenge is that you've got some member states who have been calling for a price cap on all the guests, that importer to the e. u. they've not been able to agree on that. so certainly it's going to be a difficult period going forward. and that is why, how to tackle inflationary pressures, for example, is right at the top of the agenda of these meetings that are taking place over today's d. w correspondent, christine montoya, and brussels. christine, thank you. a soaring power course. a huge problem for many companies around europe and germany as well. of course reducing energy consumption is an option for some while the same time scaling down production. but some companies simply cannot cut back on a juice, and they can't just shut down either d w's meal drug pezora reports. it's hi, precision work for more than a 100 years german company atlantic has been selling abrasive, grinding wheels. each one is custom made to the client's needs. most of their
6:49 pm
production is for export to ball bearing manufacturers, medical tech companies or order suppliers. the companies or the books are full, but the $200.00 employees are concerned about rising energy costs. electricity prices doubled in recent months and the price of gas has gone up $6.00 fold. as we advance as we were forced to sharply increase the prices because we expect energy prices to continue to rise, saying that we're now budgeting at the current high price so. so the question is, and our hope is that our loyal customers will continue to order from us because our products are of high quality and are quite simply necessary for addison when i fuck him off, then the traditional company has to buy gas and electricity on the so called spot market, because it previous energy suppliers have filed for bankruptcy. that means atlantic can't make any long term agreements for their energy needs. rising gas and
6:50 pm
electricity prices are having an immediate effect on production costs. that's because these wheels have to be baked in high temperature ovens. this is al, adding substantially up to now there's been no support at all from the state. we've applied for support for the high energy prices. but the application was extremely bureaucratic light and it almost seemed as if obstacles were being deliberately put in the way so that as few companies as possible could receive support. i'm at work . this vanish on 10 in law had the understood from hong kong. if energy prices continue to rise and a recession materializes, a company like atlantic stands to lose a significant number of orders with about and we wouldn't lay off employees. we'd put staff on reduced hours like we already had good experiences with this during corona virus. how it but it would still be difficult for our 2nd likely. we have certain costs said even this measure count, cushion of our quotes are like this outfit icon. but some businesses count,
6:51 pm
absorb the rising costs, like this bakery in bon. after more than a 125 years, the family business is closing its doors from anthem one up for 1900 euros of electricity a month, which is a lot for a small business to 3800. you can compensate for that with higher prices. it's just not possible off on gasket on finish. even if a government rescue package for small businesses materializes for some, it's already too late. another, some of the other global business stories making news. opec classes considering 8 daily oil production cuts, which sources say could now top a 1000000 barrels per day from previous estimates is re to it would be the largest since the pandemic again, delegates insist reduction figure has not been finalized yet the british government is driving one of the most controversial parts of the many budgets announced by prime minister and lose trust. 10 days ago treasury chief quality corps tank says

6:54 pm
the climate policy of federal government which is based on cutting interest rates more and more to drive a production and growth to, as we, as we heard just earlier. and this is going on since at least a year now because they started to cut interest rates back in september 2021 based on the new economy model that is aimed at driving the the growth by cheap loans so that companies can borrow money on cheaper rates and drive up an employment and therefore drive up exports and making imports unattractive. so that the pressure is broken. i want to touch the rest of that touch. connie, me will be back on track again. but so far, what we have seen is otherwise the turkish government has said that inflation would fall with this new economic model that you mentioned there. but inflation is only increasing in line with what we know from traditional economic students. does that
6:55 pm
mean that prime minister or i will change course any time so no, he made it clear several times recent. the won't change course because he sees interest rates as his biggest enemy and he has signaled just last week that they will. they will go down even further. that means that we will, we will expect more inflation and coming in coming months. and the thing is, which is new economic models, they haven't really achieved their targets, which was, like i said before, which was driving up demand untouched era over foreign currency. but this didn't happen this, this cheap long over turkish, they're not directly going to production, but they are basically going to conversion to foreign currency and stocks the, the cash reserves of companies. because the, you see the, the, the, it's a very volatile comic situation. as you mentioned, volatile economic situation, we've seen people complaining saying,
