welcome to the business i'm to nelda mullen in berlin today many in germany are looking to china wondering how they did it because while the capital berlin is still waiting for its new airport to get off the ground a full 13 years after construction started and 8 years behind schedule china's president xi jinping officially launched a glitzy new mega airport around 50 kilometers south of the capital beijing today and it took just 4 years and outward demonstration of might amid a difficult time within the country. shaped like a giant starfish beijing dossing international airport took just 4 years to build and cost $60000000000.00 euros it's already the world's largest single airport terminal building it's going to be one of the busiest president xi jinping cut the ribbon on the bus terminal the launch comes just ahead of the 70th anniversary of the people's republic of china a mass of days in the ruling communist party's calendar why should. i
hereby declare beijing dossing international airports officially open. the airport is a powerful symbol of china's rise putting on a show of strength is important right now china is seeing its biggest economic slowdown in decades because of a better trade spot with the u.s. designed by the late iraqi born architects deed the new airport will it 1st cater for 45000000 passengers by 2025 that will rise to 72000000 making it one of the world's most popular hubs. beijing dossing international airport is still smaller than the world's busiest airport in atlanta with 107000000 passengers followed by the existing beijing international airport with 101000000 and dubai international with 89000000 passengers passing through every year. it's the 2nd major airport built in beijing in just over a decade beijing international is already full while environmental activists
elsewhere ask questions about the future of mass air transition china's aviation future is just taking off. the china u.s. trade war has dampened economic prospects in asia with the asian development bank downgrading its growth forecasts for this year and next the bank scaled down its predictions from 5.7 to 5.4 percent this year and down a fraction next year to the woomera forecasts reflect clear fears that the us china trade standoff could escalate or even spread to other countries in the region for more i'm joined by yes the u.k. sawada chief economist of the asian development bank mr thought it welcomed now 5.4 percent growth in the region they still really good by most measures but the euro zone in contrast for example is projected to post just 1 point one percent growth this year how worried should governments really be. so actually as you said the
5.4 percent growth is quite robust if we exclude already high income in asia and korea i picture in china and singapore growth rate overall growth as high as 6 percent and 6 percent if economy continues this growth over 12 years it will make a size will be doubled so i think 6 percent or even 5.4 percent is still very robust so in that sense. overall it was meant for the government as a center bank also it is being going very well having said this in addition to the truck that the u.s. china trade tension over all groups global growth slowdown and also done was to make sense and conduct production cycle these are the main element why we don't want to buy slower growth forecasts
a lot of downside risk for them but what are some of the challenges that you see for the region in terms of guarding itself against the effects of these ongoing trade tensions so going to ensure there are multiple channels affecting asia economies in addition to indirect effect chinese or gross exposed will generate a negative impact on. other asian countries grows to do separate chain group about 10 network but the same time it was so done with china to the u.s. will create the opportunity through shifting export from china to other asian economies so you're at the top these opportunities i think it's very important to strengthen capacity of production expansion other also absorptive capacity of 40 direct investment. now you mention the opportunities that china's trade issues have for other countries within the region where that able to move into the space and
export more does that mean then that the trade war does produce some winners. not necessarily i think overall. chinese or gross road different return as directly affected however. across the board i think overall asia call me dumb potentially again through this shifting export from china to other asian economies so this is a typical country gaining a lot from trade shifting and also that comments like a bomber there seems to be gaining by expanding our government products on the perot exports to the u.s. market thank you very much iasi u.k. so what are their chief economist of the asian development thanks for your insights thank you very much now to some of the other global business stories making news.
