"Oil today. Us Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer have said. They're hopeful that an agreement can be reached over a bipartisan. Two trillion dollar stimulus package to counter the pandemic leaders of the G. Twenty nations will take part in video conference on Thursday to discuss the outbreak. The planned meeting will take place amid criticism. The group's been slow to respond to the global challenge posed by Corona virus and the United States and New Zealand or the latest countries to call for delay to the Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Japan's government is reportedly in negotiations with the Games organiser the International Olympic Committee to postpone the event by up to one year. It would be the first such delay in the one hundred and twenty four year history of the modern games. This is the goal blissed. Stay tuned seven here in London. It's eight thirty. Am in Zurich. That's where we head right now to our bureau in see photo editor in chief. Tyler Bra is standing by mogens to you tyler. How do we find you this Tuesday morning? You find me very very well Tom Hopefully we find you the same way you sounded sort of as bushy and fresh and energized by your drive in as as yesterday in London very much. It's getting quieter and quieter each day. Tyler I drove into this as it should and all the traffic lights went green. I felt positive even though it's hard to do it and that's what we're trying to that's what that's the business we're in. I guess I suppose on that. Point Tyler and that we touched on this yesterday in some of our conversations which listeners can dell back the after here but it is important is not to try and retain some perspective obviously. We're on a different sort of war footing here in London lychees. I last spoke to you. How are you finding out? How a how would the people you're talking to zero managing to to keep that Positively and to keep being proactive despite the restrictions. I think pretty well. Tom And I was just thinking of that That sort of famous adage or phrase the it was a good day nothing happened and it's a little bit like that. You want to make sure that if there is going to be a government press conference if you are having to dip in and out of the news tickers and watching the rolling news channels That you don't see anything. You know horrendous dramatic certainly within your own patch of the world But but even elsewhere I I have a sense and we were talking about this. We're probably watch The Green Bay eight or nine here of what has been this. This lockdown mode now of course Since the end of last week and again there were probably about three or four days ahead of the UK in the sense that you cannot have groups of more than five is is the magic number here. But I have to say from a whole sort. Social distancing policy message framework curious so clear and so precise and country known for of course. Great Information Graphics. The history of of wonderful graphic designers like Yes similar Brockman. You'd expect that Switzerland should do this well and they really do. And you're just seeing of course the prime minister's address in the UK last night. Yes of course very for messages but a lot of bluster. And then he's he's right off and then it's up to the news channels and of course the media outlets of course provide that what you see here though is a law work which is done by the government and where you instantly. Every shop is going onto their printer and they are of course. You're putting up well-designed graphics which are government-sanctioned. Everyone understands exactly what two meters looks like etc and then of course these messages have also really been filtered down of course throughout particularly right now the retail sector and I wonder what the stores are going to look like if indeed all of the main grocery stores are open in the UK pharmacies etc. What is it GonNa look like at the shop doors this morning? And what type of enforcement are there to keep people apart? What's I think that's really interesting? In s maybe parallel. Say if I think back to off to say the first Gulf War the in the early nineties and people talked about how that was a watershed moment for political combs but also how media was then filtering that message in broadcasting it to people and we got the really the birth of this very dramatic histrionic sort of news coverage. I wonder is there. A change may be a foot because of the gravity of the situation to the I. Don't you call it political way finding that we see in the media? I know you've been writing over the past couple of weeks about the optics of presentations and you've been describing it there. Is it too much to hope that maybe we might actually have some fresh quality control? People might come back to the idea that actually matters how you'll delivering the message. And not just the message itself. I think Tommy you raise a good point about absurdly Gulf War One. I think that was the the rise of the news ticker Then that is when we saw our screen move from just being the the sole group of presenters in a studio maybe cutting a to their correspondent who is in Dhahran Saudi Arabia or whoever the discussions were falling at that time. And then that's when the screen started to split a bit more than there was one ticker and then another crisis happened. That's puts me vertical down the side so I think it's also very difficult. It you know if if it doesn't what screen you're looking at him and you can be looking at a major newspaper on your phone Or if you're looking at Tele Television and there's so much going on so maybe what you're getting at you know. Are we looking at a moment of clarity? In terms of it info deliver the information delivery tone. Well I just wonder about that again. Another area where that's been has received some criticism in certain quarters. Certain here Nikkei is about clarity on what is available For Business and if we look at that small and medium sector. I think we're all probably reasonably confident that this really to supranational players can probably find a way through this in most cases How about the Messaging Tyler? And obviously we spoke yesterday. You know we're in that as as a company as a as a business concern ourselves. Has that been adequate or does it again depend looking? We'll think it also plays into of course You know what we're hearing from Mr Trump. If if you really if he's really pushing for this again this semi rather loose. lockdown Social and particularly social distancing in general. If if he's really pushing for this to be done and dusted within two weeks be a part of that is also playing into of course what is he most interested in of course the economic message and I think this is where governments in should have been a little bit smarter knowing this is common of course hindsight at all avowed but it what has stressed so many people out of course is making sure that people know at that moment. Exactly what that means so you can have a chancellor or a finance minister standup but then if suddenly you have millions of people who are freelance who were scratching their heads. Saying we'll where we in all of this or you have Family owned and operated retailers saying. Okay it's great that there's something for stores of of this scale but again where we all of this and I think that is absolutely essential in. That has really been Miss Tom. Now we're going to be hearing from you a little later today on our companion news program. The briefing New London. Thirteen where you are. I like to interrupt your lunch if I can toilet Just tell us between now and then. What's going to be on the in tray? I guess you've got lots of great newspapers With way you are any new sources or have you discovered any voices that actually seemed to make more sense than ever in times of crisis? I'm trying to spread the net a bit a bit wider. Of course here. We hear a lot from our Fiona Wilson in Tokyo often. I am looking at the likes of of the Nikkei I'm probably reengaging with an a little bit more than I would have done. certainly the Shimbun Japan just to get a perspective from outside. I look at the Frankfurter Allgemeine End. And there's actually just before we go really good story Which is in the Franco ALGA minor today? Which is about Victor Urban? And it just says you know all over. Europe civil rights have to be restricted due to the krona pandemic but with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. It's really it's a coup de detail. Right now is saying really in a way that the krone of Harris has allowed him to just become much more Viktoria if he wasn't Already so I think they are doing a great job And then I was just sort of I would draw people. Maybe this morning to The New York Times Great Story Thomas Friedman this morning Get America back to work and fast and all of the measures that that that will take as well and then of course the F. T. This morning is leading on federal deserves full firepower but fails to rest the slide in markets in. Ano- across the day and certainly on the briefing this afternoon. We'll be talking to you again That is certainly going to come to. The fore will date until we got some more newspapers coming up in just a moment as the perfect segue. Thanks for being with us. We'll talk to you later. Does Monaco's editor in chief Tyler. Bradley Manning our Zurich Station this Tuesday You're with the Global Hero monocle twenty four. Well let's continue to Russell through that pile of newspapers. That Lagos started on just then joining us. Today is professor of international politics at so as university Phil Clarke Phil. Good morning to you very good to have you on the program. I'm sorry alongside me in studio but I know you've been busy At home I think you are. What have you got? I today Morning Tom I wanted to start with a non corona virus story which is something that's happening in Mozambique. This is a piece in the daily Maverick news outlet in South Africa Talking about amounting insurgency in the north of Mozambique yesterday an organization calling itself Islamic State Central Africa Province Icecap Which I think is an offshoot of Islamic coming out of Somalia captured a a very important port town cold mckim dupree in the north of Mozambique This has been part of a thirty months jihadist insurgency in the northern part of Mozambique that this is the the biggest gain Icecap has made I guess in many ways there is a corona virus link. Which is that. This is putting a spotlight on armed. Actors may be capitalizing on the corona virus situation capitalizing on the fact that governments like Mozambique's Consumed with trying to tackle karenna virus. Perhaps that military is looking the other way and in this particular case that I've captured is very important to port town in the north of Mozambique Philippines interesting. I guess this serves to remind us that. There is a risk of becoming almost fixated by corona virus understandably but you know. The world goes on in their stories we want makes. It was interesting tyler. Brule I was talking about Victor Auburn sort of You know tightening his grip domestically using the corona outbreak as a pretext and this is a salutary lesson again. We need to keep our eyes open all around the world. That's exactly right so this situation provides massive opportunities for all sorts of actors at globally. And I think that includes armed actors yesterday. I also read a piece in the New York Times suggesting that some splinter groups at the faulk have also used at this time to add to capture a couple of tiny towns out on the Colombian Venezuelan. Boorda that that's in the context of a teetering peace process between the Colombian government and and the Fox. What we're seeing in places like Colombia and Mozambique is a potentially an escalation of conflict as everybody is so focusing on the on the corona virus situation. I guess the other relevance of what's happening in Mozambique that icecap of catch this strategic port town but this is In a part of the country where Mozambicans experiencing massive oil and gas discoveries and and a huge growth in that industry And again because of the corona virus situation Mozambique like a lot of African states is worried about the the economic impact. And I were having to think about why's is to To bolster their economies at this very vulnerable time not only is a country like Mozambique going to have to deal with corona virus..
