US-China rivalry hinders a struggling HSBC
"We've seen fall out over the UK is World Way decision suspensions of extradition treaties on most recently. Hong Kong considering on election delay That could mean HSBC's business shift may prove untenable under its current structure being listed in the UK and Hong Kong while supporting China's national security law, expectations of more drastic action on earnings, they are increasing well for more on this. We're joined by Bloomberg Finance reporter Harry Wilson. Thank you so much for being with me, Harry. Look, first of all on H S B. C. It was unusual, wasn't it? That HSBC made the statement that it did about China's controversial A new law that effects Hong Kong. Why do you think they did that? I can only surmise they come on the enormous amount of pressure to say something on it. Normally, banks, particularly HSBC have like to remain entirely apolitical. Getting into politics just isn't in the DNA. And I think the fact that they felt they had to come out and say something publicly shows that probably not saying something will was seen as a school, too. So we certainly have picked up in the last couple of months that our thanks senior to perfectly are getting a little hum. I think a lot of cools a lot of Um ah, imploring from their Asian businesses to basically toe the line of it more when when it comes to Christo. Events in Hong Kong and China. Okay, so that on the security law on the flipside, of course, the pressure in response to that Was was also apply from the UK side. So it's kind of ratcheted up the political pressure you know, on in both parts of their business, surely Yes. So they are getting pressure from all sides. Not just something you came to. The U. S. Is also called him out over this and they're really in a very difficult position because effectively theory some game we'll have You say that since Beijing China onside Is seen in the West to UK us being, uh, essentially going against Western policy, so there isn't really a wind for them haters. In some positions, they can take the fetal sides happy so But trying to be trying to walk a line between them, which sees the increasingly difficult Do you think things matters are going to get worse? And how does it affect the business going forwards? It's a UK bank, but that makes most of its money in Asia. Well, exactly of you should go back with the ancient history of HSBC in the late eighties early nineties recognized this issue, which is why they part of reason why they decided first byway and size of Midland Bank and build up a business. Outside of Asia more than they had at the time, and that was, in part at least a recognition that the situation could become more difficult. Posi handover of Hong Kong in 1997 Now what we've seen since 1997 attempts become a global bank has hit some some brake blocks from headwinds off late, So now they find themselves in a situation where There probably is exposed to Asia optically Hong Kong as they have ever been on that places them in a very difficult position. Because see they want to continue doing business in Hong Kong that increasing against me that they got here to the lines of China, But of course that puts a man on a collision course with Earth. With the U K and the Y the West. So how do you think that this is going to be expressed then? Potentially in earnings? I don't think we're going to really see anything. Take Lee and the earnings on this Aziz yet we're really in the Very early stages off this spook growing political contest between between China and Hong Kong itself. These Already in a family, the procession and that that is really with us China trade tensions or the problems we've we've been talking about just now, that's more to do with Corona virus before about the political people. We saw lately in Hong Kong. I think they probably were looking more 5 10 years out. It could be the case that you start to see a kind of maybe death of 1000 cups and those who have so little losses here and there now see that that is very well aware of that on there going to be looking through everything they can to make sure that that happens.

Hong Kong opposition slams China national security law move
"In Hong Kong Pro Democracy lawmakers are blasting China's move to enact national security legislation. They believe this legislation could mark the end of the One Country. Two System Arrangement that has given Hong Kong semi autonomy. Since the end of British rule in nineteen ninety-seven the move by China emerged from this week's national legislative session and event that largely serves as a rubber stamp for what the Communist Party in Beijing wants to do. Cnn's Ivan Watson joins us from Hong Kong via skype and Ivan. I can you explain what this new legislation can actually mean for Hong Kong. I think it's important to stress. How different Hong Kong is from the rest of mainland China to people? Who may not know? It's the free as corner of the People's Republic of China and it was supposed to stay largely autonomous until two thousand forty seven and govern itself while being part of China so here the Internet isn't censored and the courts are independent of the political leadership and can rule against it. None of that exists in mainland China. And what the Communist Party has now announced is in the interest of national security. It is not going to dictate a whole series of laws and criminalize actions down here in Hong Kong with a heavy handed approach and a direct approach that it has never had until today. I mentioned the One Country Two System Arrangement I mean. Does this in effect then end that arrangement but certainly would hongkongers from the opposition and elected legislator who are critics of the Communist Party in mainland China? That's they're saying. This is the end of Hong Kong as we know it. And when you see. The list of what is proposed here which includes Criminalising treason secession in sedition against the Chinese government authorizing the National Security Agency of mainland China to set up offices down here in Hong Kong secret police. All of that suggests a very dramatic shift here and something that this city has never really seen in modern times. Is this retribution. For those democracy protests we've been seeing in Hong Kong over the last year the central government in China and the Hong Kong administrators. Who are by Beijing have been defending these new national security proposals arguing that the protests were a threat to national security in all of China. And thus they have to do this. There've been some caveats saying hey freedom of speech freedom assembly all those things that you have known they will be untouched. But if you've ever been in mainland China and seeing what a police state it is there and how any dissent is absolutely crushed very quickly. It's very clear that the national security rubric can be used as an excuse to almost stop anything in mainland China. So why wouldn't that be any different down here? All of this. All of these decisions are happening as we speak in real time. But I'm wondering how will this resonate in the region with the people? They are particularly in Hong Kong. There is alarmed for instance. One man I spoke with your. He runs a photo printing shop. He said this is taking us backwards and he. Also this is ominous. He said his WHATSAPP GROUP WITH HIS CHILDHOOD. Friends has completely dried up today in response to this now. Couple of points. Whatsapp doesn't exist in mainland China. The there's such censorship it also suggests that immediately ordinary people are worried that what they may message. Each Other presumably in privacy could be used against them in the future. What's next Ivan in this process? The opposition here is calling for protests which died down over the last five months as this city was dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and as the threat of that pandemic receded here. The old political divisions were starting to bubble up again. Beijing has shot a very strong shot across the bow here and recall that last year. You Up to two million people protesting against these types of measures. That's two out of every seven. Hong Kongers were out in opposition. That even if they manage to generate that kind of popular protests right now it does not seem like Xi Jinping. The ruler of China is

Cameron recently has expect expect express some remorse regret about actually calling for this the first time around well he his book is Pretty Open in terms of him saying I failed called a referendum and lost that result the one big criticism that people still have with the media interviews he's done and as far as he went in the book you go to applaud that part of the mission but he still says the holding the referendum a tool was inevitable most people disagree with that and also go further to say he called it in order to help his own domestic political chances which helped him get a victory in two thousand fifteen fifteen in the general election so that will be where most people criticized that he hasn't gone far enough in his admission of guilt but you also juxtaposed it to a lot today's politicians and just an admission of guilt tool to some level is is perhaps a commendable th the other slight criticism as well. The that we did talk about and I would say is worth watching backs. I thought it was really interesting. Is there's been so much criticism of the lies exaggerations of the leaf campaign and I did also ask him whether his remain campaign aim was perfectly truthful and he admitted that it wasn't so so I mean yes he's gone further than some politicians but still seeing ultimately as calling a referendum people say wasn't totally necessary and losing and that is ultimately for all he can write about his biggest legacy we work has scrapped plans for an IPO for now but will the company's troubles. Put the Commercial Real Estate Market at Risk Rob. Frank joins us now with more on that. Hey Robert Good Morning Mike well we work as the largest commercial tenant in Manhattan with over seven million square feet of space so the collateral damage from we work troubles could spread to landlords to lenders and the broader commercial market now. The building behind me is that we work building called eighty-eight university place. It is in downtown. Manhattan on it is partly owned by Adam Newman of course the former. CEO of we work we work leases that building from Newman and his partners IBM sub leases from we work now. The building is now for sale and this sale is being widely washes. This is the bellwether for we works possible impact on the market now the asking price for this building right now is a hundred and ten million but brokers say it's going to be talk to get that price and that is because Newman and his partners bought this building in two thousand fifteen through an LLC with with his partner the fashion designer Elie Tahari Bahari. They paid seventy million dollars now. There's debt on top of debt in this building so of course newman barred from J. P. Morgan and others to buy this building and others and there is a seventy eight million dollar loan in addition to that on the building so the debt on this building is now larger than the purchase price now. The problem here is that Manhattan right now has a huge oversupply of commercial space. you projects like Hudson yards and World Trade Center and we work has absorbed absorb much of that growth so far and Robert. How unusual is it to ask for a price that others think is going to be crazy and you're never gonNA get anywhere near that. We see it all the time in in residential real estate Manhattan but commercial real estate is typically a smarter market now when you look at comps one hundred and ten is high but we work would argue they have improved not just the building and they put millions of dollars or Adam Newman his partners did into new elevators new heating and air conditioning systems and this is a great great neighborhood that we work argues they make neighborhoods and building values go up when they come in but that of course the question for this'll be the test for what is the we work either premium or discount to a building. We've seen a couple of we work. Buildings pulled from the market recently because the landlords were nervous about selling this could be the first test so in other words. It's a tech commercial real estate building not just a realistic exactly proper. Thank you tease will be we next next on squad pod.

You're listening to Squawk pod taking you behind the sounds of squawk box on CNBC today Eh Alexis Oh Hainian who joins the show from Florida this morning he co-founded news and discussion site read it and even though he left the company in two thousand eighteen he's still close to the culture there nowadays he's managing his own venture capital firm initialized capital there early stage investors so Alexis is watching the market for startup companies wanting to public and big tech regulation very closely. I caught up with becky quick at the Nasdaq after the show Alexis and Heynen is an old friend who squawk box and he joined us remote this morning on on the show he did and I love Lexus every time he comes on he tells me something that opens my eyes a little bit and I think you always speaks incredibly honestly. He's not telling you what uh he thinks will help his side of things. It tells you what he actually sees which I always appreciate the guest this morning we talk with Alexis about a couple of issues one is how is Silicon Valley A and how venture capitalists kind of looking at the deals they do now in light of the IPO's that we've seen this year a lot of numbers that have gotten taken down and then there's The we IPO oh that is not going to happen but you know going from forty seven billion to ten or fifteen billion how how does that change the way they think and he had an interesting answer. He said part part of this is a revaluing of what's happening but he also said he thinks it's has something to do with street and a lot of problems that Silicon Valley with Wall Street setup for how they do business. I think the most interesting thing with Alexis is just this idea that Silicon Valley thinks that Wall Street is fleecing fleecing them he didn't even mince words or deny it when I asked him directly Alexis. Thanks for being here. It's great to see you very good beer Alexis. Let's just talk about what you've seen so far with the IPO market. How has that trickle down into the valley and is that changing the way venture capital firms start looking at new funding that they're putting to work today you know so what is clear is this this? IPO roadshow trend is is falling out of style. I think one of the things that has been most apparent the two most CEOS of late intact is that for all of the virtues and the excitement of becoming a publicly traded company the way that the public markets markets work in terms of incentivizing CEOS to focus on short-term as opposed to long-term has been a challenge and I think we're seeing more and more alternatives be devised in and crafted we were early investors in long-term stock exchange which wants to be away for CEO's to to get their companies some liquidity but to do so in a way that's responsible possible for long-term investment access. It's so interesting to hear you say that because I was talking to a guest last week who said like the mood and Silicon Valley right now is to try and stick it to the bankers bankers that they're sick of kind of getting held up by what's happening with the IPO and if they can you know hose the hose the bankers for another five cents. They're going to do it but then if you look at something like the direct listing that slack just listed that didn't perform so well either so what's the answer. I think a different model for for even how these exchanges changes can work is is really order. One that incentivize incentivizes people who have had a positions of the companies for longer terms to have have a bigger vote but also one that that really takes any consideration the fact that you know stock prices change every second and yet the actual value of companies. I don't change nearly that often. I'm so how do we really think about even the fundamentals of how these marketplaces work that allow for liquidity to happen but at the same time take into account the the fact that we want companies to be focused on long term growth as opposed to quick.

"I'm Becky Quick Along with Wilfred Frost and Mike Santoli Joe and Andrew off today a check out the market though stocks are or having their best start to the year since nineteen ninety-seven let's check out the returns for the year so far the Dow up by fifteen percent the S. and p. up by nineteen percent and then the Nasdaq checkup by twenty two percent Mike. You love this when we emphasise. Look it's real the numbers are in fact they're factual. I just think it's a unique in the sense that we had such a dramatic low point in the market markets right before the calendar year. Click over so if you look at one year ago today the S. and P. Five hundred October first two thousand eighteen close at twenty nine twenty four and this morning. We're in twenty-nine eightyish so I I think that you can spend that both ways right. You could say you know. The market really isn't looking very stretched to the upside because we've kind of been going sideways for most of the year and and Nineteen ninety-seven for example the year started at an all time high and then you went up twenty percent three quarters but but it but it's true you forget about where we were on. Christmas Eve we had just taken that huge plugs twenty percent down in less than three months exactly the which is interesting on Q. Three Performance Kinda similar Europe to the US but China lacked significantly and just again where we are in the trade war who's hurting more who's hunting less down about four point seven percent for the quarter which is much more significant than a slight gain that you've got over three months for the US markets too dramatic scenes in Asia kicked things off on Squawk box today pro democracy protesters in Hong Kong clashed with police on what is a symbolically important day October. First is the National Day of the People's Republic of China marking the anniversary of the nineteen forty nine founding of the Communist Party and the party was partying as we went to air this morning China's President Xi Jinping was speaking in Beijing the first sounds from reporter Eunice Yoon who was standing in front of a theatrical and patriotic backdrop of a massive event in Tiananmen Square Good Morning Good Morning Welfare while preparations are underway at sixty thousand people are expected to come here on Tiananmen Square including putting China's top leaders to celebrate the seventieth anniversary of the People's Republic. There's an evening gala and then a little bit later on tonight. A fireworks display in all of this of course is to send home the message from Beijing that China is great again a President Xi Jinping earlier this morning hi up kicked off the military parade by saying that the Chinese people that no force can stop the Chinese people and the Chinese nation from forging ahead at the same time a president had reiterated that China is committed to peace. Now that message was in stark contrast to the hardware the military hardware explained that we saw today including an intercontinental ballistic missile that Beijing unveiled for the first time called the D. F. Forty one to set to be capable to hit any target in the United States president she had also a made a veiled warning to Hong Kong reiterating that China is very committed to the one China principle also another reminder to Taiwan. I want now for investors in his speech. There was very little when it comes to a reforms or a China's international role in the world world and that was a suggestion too many here that the message at the end of the day investors is that China is going to continue with the hard line nationalistic check stance and that could have an impact on the trade talks because this what we're seeing here the political backdrop of the vice premier you you who is heading to Washington next week and with this type of event as the backdrop for him going in to those discussions discussions it seems very difficult for him to have a whole lot of flexibility in a way that to make any concessions that could potentially a show China as a weaker party then the United States guys. I don't know if you can hear us because I realize it's really loud behind you but I did hear reports this morning suggesting that anytime there's been weakness in the economy the manufacturing numbers that have been showing some contraction there that anytime that weakness has come. It's been pretty pretty easy to blame president trump what you hear on the streets there people do worry about the trade war but there is all there are also a lot of other economists who say that that we are seeing weakness in the economy not only because of the trade war which is seen here her as a as a initiative that was launched by president trump but also because of economic other economic reason such as they have nothing to do with the US such as the debt levels the fact that China even before the trade war was actually trying to slow things down so the weakness that we're seeing in the economy isn't entirely being blamed on President trump. Though of course there are a lot of people who say that betrayed war has been exacerbating situation especially people who I speak to in the manufacturing shrinks actor Eunice. Thank you very much eunice. Yoon meantime in Hong Kong protesters are clashing with police. That's where we find. CNBC Sherry King Sherry. What can you tell us why it's certainly urban while battlegrounds here in Hong Kong marking the seventieth anniversary of the People's Republic of China here in Hong Kong. Some hardcore anti government pro democracy protesters marking the day setting many different parts of the city on fire and police actually responded with tear gas and certainly at a level that we haven't really seen this past summer. Yes there has been esscalation and Rajawali in the level of aggression coming from both sides but today marking a special occasion of the National Day with a High I alert of for many key areas of protests and it's very difficult by the way anecdotally to find a live position for our team and myself because these protesters are moving in a very fast manner to beat the police arrests and there have been a at least east a dozen arrested being made as well. There is a report in a local media that one protester has been shots and by a live live round shot fired by police officer now. CNBC has not been able to verify independently this comes against the backdrop of the Hong Kong government scaling gangling things down in terms of National Day celebration for example fireworks that in schedule normally have been cancelled flag-raising ceremony this morning has been moved indoors as while certainly you know on a you know sort of tiptoeing around so that they avoid the worst case scenario OREO and for hearing you're seeing a number of fire trucks and ambulances being deployed as back to you you mentioned that the protesters are moving quickly trying to stay ahead of the please but even the pictures that we saw the video that was running through. didn't seem like the protests were anywhere near the size that we've seen in the past. What what what can you tell us just about the scale and the scope of them right now while it's just practically all over the Hong Kong Island it's many different parts of Hong Kong and and it's many different factions or groups of protesters trying to dodge the arrest and clashes with Hong Kong police but also okay one important point that I need to make here is that the main march should that was happening across Hong Kong Island that involves a thousands of pro democracy accuracy of protesters did manage to march in a peaceful manner but really you know towards the nightfall things do get aggressive as some of the hardcore protestors refused to go home after marching Nice Jerry.

The reports of protesters being shot with live rounds demonstrators tore down National Day banner and set it alight. It's not the first time Hongkongers treated Chinese nationalism with hostility flags have been stomped on government buildings defaced at football matches locals boo ooh turn their backs on China's national anthem Hong Kong doesn't have its own anthem or at least it didn't until recently on the sudden in the Middle September. Somebody wrote one theater. Rocco is the economists culture editor. She's been reporting in Hong Kong recently. They purchase on telegram which is the activists favored APP and crowd sourced words. It has has the romantic lyrics typical of national anthems asking that may people rain proud and free now ever more. It's a little bit it Corny. It's a very emotional glory to the Hong Kong and it's immensely powerful in a slickly produced produced video of choir. An Orchestra perform in the uniform of the territory's protests like clothing gas masks and goggles. It was put up on Sunday Sunday following Tuesday. There was a World Cup football match against Iran and at eight o'clock exactly the entire stadium stood up and sang this anthem that they just learned about online so the mood in Hong Kong and the weeks and weeks and weeks of protests are inspiring new art uh-huh and interesting place in the center of the Asian film industry voice been a lot of cartoons load designers graphic artists. They tend to be not as creative but they're very independent minded so it's not tall surprising that they are real backbone of the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong and through telegram. They have been creating new art every day in the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of new images being put up time at first it was quite it light hearted. Casey Wong is an artist and activist. He had quite funny piece in the early part of the spring. It made a mock prison looked at she likes a British telephone box with red bars and he and a friend of his dressed up as mainland policemen with aviator sunglasses and that white gloves loves in their truncheons which they used to quote unquote arrest. Some of the crowd crowd of course it was hilarious. The whole thing was magnificent selfish and say they really greatly enjoyed it but the mood is getting darker not just in the street but also in the art. How do you mean they'd they've been a number of exhibitions and a number of works. That really are a far cry from the levity of the early days have been a number of performances. Mrs Of the summer that have taken a much darker turn particularly a performance artist could tell Lou actually comes from the mainland at Saarlouis lose very very famous because in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine just before the tournament square protest happened she fired an Airgun at one of her works of art and Hurric- specialists immediately closed down. She's always known now as the person who fired the first shot of chairman fast forward to two thousand nineteen she comes to Hong Kong. She puts on a new show called skew in which she appears in what looks like right because who great pyramid shaped prism made purse backs. She's inside it up to her ankles. In Red Liquid made represent present large. He's dressed all in black and driving around screaming in anguish. It was a very creepy strange thing to watch in the city in which these protests taking place in fact the man who is standing next to me suddenly piped up. Oh my God I hope she's not going to prove to be Hong Kong's Cassandra Cassandra of course princess of Troy who was a prophetess who always issued warnings and nobody would ever believe them and is there any sign that the authorities what he's trying to clamp down on this on this kind of protest art as it as it gets it gets louder as it gets more provocative. That doesn't seem to be and that's an interesting question because of course does it is an extremely important outlet when emotions are running very high and I think you'll be smart for the Chinese to allow that to continue because it's clearly something that Hong Kong as feel very strongly about outlet for that creativity and they're very attached to it. Do you think thank the the change in the art represents. The fact that the art is is reflecting the protest mood or or propelling it. I think it's probably reflecting it rather more. I mean there's so many things propelling the mood. It's difficult to single them all out but I think it's reflective Clark. Protests dot often John is reflective. All uprisings have their iconography as whether we're talking about posters of the Russian revolution or the Spanish Spanish civil war soldier being shot in tasked famously grocery this arms outstretched or photograph tank man in Tenement Square. These come come to embody the revelations themselves fat kind of imagery is very very important and when you're seeing it it being produced at such speed it can reflect very fast and even laundrup new national anthems and even conjure.

"It's, it's not their national sport per se. But do you feel like it's bigger than it is in the US in some ways, I feel like they definitely enjoy the game, more and certain parts of the country because they're not earth parts of the province because they're not as exposed to it as we are terms of seeing MBA players being around him be a players. The dedication to have to, you know, watch games at six seven AM sometimes four AM, depending on, if it's Pacific time, eastern time just kinda shows you how dedicated they truly truly are. So I know you're enjoying your time and you're trying to take it all in. Is it safe to say that despite basketball, not being China's national sport per se that, that in some places in China basketball is, is more prevalent than even the US? I think in some places it's definitely closely. More prevalent, because the fact that we're so far removed from Asia, you know, a lot of players. Don't come here. Now, more players are starting to come to Asia. More players are starting to take towards interact with fans and realizing how many dedicated loyal fans there are here as well. I always like to say they're more basketball fans in China than there are people in the United States, just because of the population that how big it is. And the game is such a growing sport. They're always trying to figure out ways to evolve figuring out ways to interact and engage with us as players in. I think that they're dedicated shows in the time zone difference in how late they have to stay up to watch games. You know, six AM five AM depending on if it's Pacific time. And especially for those Christmas games in, you know, noon to eastern, those are those are different times based on the time zone obviously, it's well hours from from the east coast, fifteen from the west, and it just kinda shows you how much they really true. Value in love game. But obviously, you know, the fancy in the United States in, in Canada are, are huge as well. See it's interesting because we've seen Asia, become such a massive market for the league and for basketball as a whole specifically in China and Japan. But which given the population, have you had like the craze of people coming up to you, because I've been noticing, you know, on your on your Instagram posts, it seems like you're going to these events. And there are thousands of people waiting just to see you has that been the norm in, in previous trips. And what have you noticed differently on this trip? There have definitely been a lot more fans than I've been accustomed to on my trip in China last year fans repacking out the malls. They were packing out the stores. But I think the, the level of love and appreciation and support them. Getting this year's is greater, I think that's part, two parts first part is that we had a deeper playoff run. So they were able to be exposed to our team be more. Supposed to my game. How I play and and how I've impacted the NBA the second part is being with the Chinese brand in leaning for two years. Now they've been able to promote me throughout China. They've been able to push you know, my story and income explain you know what type of player I am type of person..

"Cents. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm David Greene. The political crisis in Venezuela and the US response is affecting global oil markets. The US has been that nation's largest oil export market, but Washington's new sanctions effectively ban. US imports of Venezuelan oil energy expert Francisco Manal, d of Rice University calls this a one two punch pretty soon the US will consume Ciro barrels openness oil oil. I mean, it was consuming about half a million barrels of by the end of last year. And it was by the way exporting around a hundred and twenty thousand borrows from the US of refined products to Venezuela which are important for the domestic market of gasoline plus to blend with the extra heavy oil that Venezuela produces. So these double whammy for Benaissa in the sense that as you pointed out is the largest market. The other two large markets are India and China, and it was the one who generated the most cash for the national oil company. Venezuela. Because a lot of what it goes to to Asia issues to repay bets. Let's look at a couple different scenarios here. If one Widodo becomes the president. I mean, he has promised a better future for Venezuelans how easily and how quickly could he turn this around and make the oil industry beneficial for Venezuela's people it will take a while. But I think there is a significant chance that if there is some degree of political stability, the oil industry will recover relatively fast that requires attracting a lot of foreign investment because the Venezuelan national companies bankrupt and the country is heavily into that. But the impression that I have is that the international community will help Venezuela in that transition. The sanctions would be lifted at that point and that will allow for a significant investment to go back to Benadryl that will require an institutional environment that is conducive to that. And that's very important challenge for the Y administration. Let's look at the. Other scenario. I mean, if the United States has put its bet on the wrong person here, let's say Madero stays in power. You've written about that the United States imposing sanctions on the current government could open the door for countries like Russia and China to gain more influence, you know, right here in the neighborhood. What what what exactly do you mean by that warning? So today that three largest partners of the national company of Venezuela art, Chevron from the US China National Petroleum undrafted f from Russia and a key element in the production. Are these companies work with service companies of the US, including slumber year on Hollywood's on our major service providers, if all these US companies, plus possibly other western companies from Europe leave the country, basically, they're all lose your will be totally in the hands of Russian and Chinese companies, which already have been the largest lenders to Venezuela, and you know, are becoming the largest buyers because even though Russia doesn't need Minnesota oil. They take it on the sell it. Elsewhere, for example in India. And let me just ask you one more question about Guido were he to take over is there a role for US energy companies to play in helping with the transition and starting to get that production going more quickly. Without a doubt as I said, Chevron is already the largest player in Venezuela. And the service companies of the US are the major services provided not only in Venezuela but throughout the world, so they are absolutely essential for the recovery. So without about western oil companies will have a big role to play and probably will lead the charge in terms of the amount of investment, which is huge Dadis required by the renaissance L and oil industry Francisco and all the is a fellow and Latin American energy policy at the Baker institute for public policy at.
