Eight years in the making, the European Parliament backs a big

:00:11.:00:12.

Could it serve as a model for a future British deal,

:00:13.:00:20.

Live from London, that's our top story on Thursday 16th February.

:00:21.:00:38.

It's Canada's biggest trade deal since the controversial

:00:39.:00:42.

North America Free Trade Agreement, but not everyone is a fan of CETA.

:00:43.:00:45.

We'll run you through the details later in the show.

:00:46.:00:51.

Also in the programme: Second time lucky?

:00:52.:00:53.

Prosecutors in South Korea get another shot at arresting

:00:54.:00:55.

Let's look at what is happening on the markets. The board is playing up

:00:56.:01:08.

a little, I'm afraid, we can see the Footsie slipped a little after a bit

:01:09.:01:10.

of a lacklustre run in Asia. Do you fancy yourself

:01:11.:01:15.

as a James Bond... Later in the programme,

:01:16.:01:17.

we'll speak to the boss of a company providing

:01:18.:01:26.

high octane team-building exercises. Exciting or just excessive?

:01:27.:01:28.

Stay tuned and decide for yourself! Also today, Nokia could be

:01:29.:01:33.

resurrecting the iconic 3310 phones. So we want to know,

:01:34.:01:36.

what retro technology would you like to bring back?

:01:37.:01:38.

Just use the hashtag, #BBCBizLive. After eight years of negotiations,

:01:39.:01:48.

the EU parliament has approved a landmark free trade deal

:01:49.:01:54.

with Canada. Lawmakers in Strasbourg voted

:01:55.:02:00.

in favour of the so-called CETA agreement, which is hoped to add

:02:01.:02:04.

billions of dollars both Once fully implemented,

:02:05.:02:06.

the deal will eliminate 99% of the tariffs between

:02:07.:02:14.

Canada and the EU. And the European Commission

:02:15.:02:16.

estimates that this could increase trade between the two regions

:02:17.:02:18.

by nearly a quarter. Now that the EU Parliament has

:02:19.:02:22.

given the green light to the deal, both sides can start

:02:23.:02:25.

removing trade barriers. But the agreement goes

:02:26.:02:29.

beyond the simple removal of tariffs and calls for further reforms

:02:30.:02:32.

which would require ratification This includes the controversial

:02:33.:02:35.

measures such as the creation of a dedicated

:02:36.:02:44.

court to settle disputes CETA is Canada's biggest trade deal

:02:45.:02:46.

since the North America Some campaign groups have pointed to

:02:47.:02:58.

CETA as a potential model for Brexit, once the UK formally leaves

:02:59.:03:00.

the European Union. Andreas Hoepner, is an Associate

:03:01.:03:03.

Professor of Finance Great to have you with us in the

:03:04.:03:12.

studio. A lot of MEPs giving themselves pats on the back, using

:03:13.:03:18.

words like, a watershed moment, EU trade policy will never be the same,

:03:19.:03:22.

so who is the biggest winner, the EU or Canada?

:03:23.:03:26.

I would say both are winners, but the biggest winner is Canada. Canada

:03:27.:03:30.

will have access coming forward to the North American market, and the

:03:31.:03:35.

European market. Europe certainly is a winner, following 2016, it is a

:03:36.:03:38.

successful Europe. The biggest winner within Europe, I think is

:03:39.:03:45.

France, because of the relationship with a French-speaking area.

:03:46.:03:49.

That is a good point. Are we here, with there? It has still got to be

:03:50.:03:54.

ratified, and I write, by all the members. And that was little

:03:55.:04:02.

Belgium! The French speaking part of Belgium.

:04:03.:04:12.

Region parliament has two ratify everything, so there are a lot of

:04:13.:04:20.

steps to go through. -- has two ratify. It seems quite likely that

:04:21.:04:26.

it is all going the right way. We have elections, could they

:04:27.:04:30.

disrupt? If Germany gets a change, the Netherlands, could it change the

:04:31.:04:35.

deal? We have seen a level of opposition

:04:36.:04:39.

as well. All the protesters that stormed the European Parliament

:04:40.:04:44.

building, dressed up, saying it was a poor deal, anti-globalisation

:04:45.:04:48.

protesters, and that strength of feeling is growing, isn't it?

:04:49.:04:52.

We have elections. Election forecasts are difficult bees days.

:04:53.:04:57.

Don't listen to the polls! It could change the European Union

:04:58.:05:01.

more generally. The protesters are important, and make a lot of

:05:02.:05:05.

relevant points, from an environment perspective, but if you ask them to

:05:06.:05:10.

pick a deal, nearly everyone would take CETA. Essentially, some of the

:05:11.:05:16.

concerns have been heard. The deal has been made better from their

:05:17.:05:20.

perspective to a degree, and the protest will continue, but it is

:05:21.:05:24.

better for Europe of the two deals. Some suggest it is such a good deal,

:05:25.:05:30.

the model of it, not we, says the Australian, the Brits, as a possible

:05:31.:05:37.

model to use a trade model for when Brexit happens.

:05:38.:05:41.

The Brits can very much look at it as a deal for them, and Canada, and

:05:42.:05:51.

for the UK and Europe deal, it doesn't cover financial services,

:05:52.:05:55.

and that is an important point. It does not cover it all. The same

:05:56.:05:59.

question, does Europe see it as a potential deal, or look to

:06:00.:06:04.

Switzerland and Norway four separate deals? I do really think it is

:06:05.:06:11.

relevant. Andreas Hoepner, thank you for your

:06:12.:06:13.

time and for coming in. Donald Trump's choice for labour

:06:14.:06:16.

secretary has pulled out of the race Andrew Puzder lost the support

:06:17.:06:21.

of several Republican senators after he admitted employing

:06:22.:06:25.

an illegal immigrant The fast-food billionaire had been

:06:26.:06:27.

criticised for his remarks on women He's the first Trump cabinet pick

:06:28.:06:34.

to fail to secure a nomination. Internet group Yahoo has reportedly

:06:35.:06:42.

agreed a price cut on its initial Verizon's purchase of Yahoo's core

:06:43.:06:45.

internet arm was put in doubt last year after disclosure

:06:46.:06:55.

of two cyber attacks. Several reports in the US said Yahoo

:06:56.:06:59.

has now accepted a price cut of up to $350 million and agreed to share

:07:00.:07:02.

liability with Verizon News of the renegotiated terms

:07:03.:07:05.

was first reported by Bloomberg, which said an announcement

:07:06.:07:11.

could come this week. Elsewhere, Snapchat, all the

:07:12.:07:32.

Internet giant's throne contenders, look at Snapchat.

:07:33.:07:39.

They said it could be 25 billion, this is when it goes public, and

:07:40.:07:43.

lists in New York on the stock exchange. It came up with a

:07:44.:07:49.

valuation of 19.5 billion to 22.2 billion. It has never made a profit,

:07:50.:07:55.

and it is a similar story to Facebook.

:07:56.:08:00.

It is a unicorn. We know that already. Similar to five years ago

:08:01.:08:06.

in 2012, with Facebook. Looking at Twitter as well, it is

:08:07.:08:10.

still struggling. Everyone is saying the same that

:08:11.:08:18.

Snapchat has to learn to monetise. It does succeed in having a lot of

:08:19.:08:21.

younger users, which Twitter is failing to do. We will have two C.

:08:22.:08:31.

Do you use it? -- we will have to see.

:08:32.:08:40.

For the second time in three weeks, a court will decide whether to grant

:08:41.:08:44.

a request to arrest the head of South Korea's largest company.

:08:45.:08:46.

Will the prosecutors be lucky, if you will, this time?

:08:47.:08:53.

We don't know yet. We will find out at the end of this week, but we

:08:54.:08:58.

speak of the de facto head of Samsung group. He is trying to avoid

:08:59.:09:09.

a second arrest warrant after allegations against him were widened

:09:10.:09:15.

to include concealing a criminal profit and hiding assets overseas.

:09:16.:09:19.

This is along with the earlier claims of bribery, embezzlement and

:09:20.:09:23.

perjury. Mr Lee has denied wrongdoing. The South Korean

:09:24.:09:36.

president has orally been impeached, hushed -- already been impeached.

:09:37.:09:44.

While the arrest has been sought today, investigators have also today

:09:45.:09:50.

been denied access to the blue house, South Korea's seat of power

:09:51.:09:57.

to question the nation's president. The plot thickens. That is a story

:09:58.:10:02.

we will stay across. There has been a starter in world markets.

:10:03.:10:10.

Japan's Nikkei fell half a per cent over worry that perhaps the global

:10:11.:10:14.

Another positive assessment of the US economy,

:10:15.:10:21.

and reassurance over tax reform from President Donald Trump.

:10:22.:10:27.

Lets take a quick look at how European indices have opened.

:10:28.:10:31.

They are all down, they have pretty much run out of steam after that

:10:32.:10:36.

lacklustre session in Asia. Michelle Fleury has

:10:37.:10:38.

the details about what's ahead US stocks sale into Thursday powered

:10:39.:10:53.

by record highs on the indexes. They all finished at all-time highs.

:10:54.:10:59.

While the American Pluto system may feel like it is in chaos. The

:11:00.:11:06.

economy is in rude health. Janet Yellin appeared at Capitol Hill on

:11:07.:11:11.

Thursday and reiterated the strength of the US economy. And for proof,

:11:12.:11:16.

she could point to retail sales, which again, were significantly

:11:17.:11:20.

higher, and showed a good deal of strength. What about the other

:11:21.:11:24.

pillar of the US economy? That is the housing market. With interest

:11:25.:11:29.

rates going up, and with signs that there might be more rent rises to

:11:30.:11:34.

come, what will it do to borrowing costs? What is the knock-on effect

:11:35.:11:39.

for housing? Economists will be looking at housing starts, as well

:11:40.:11:43.

as wielding permits for January as an early indication.

:11:44.:11:51.

James, good to see you. Thanks for coming in. We want to start on the

:11:52.:12:01.

US, the proposal, the border tax, and I believe all the US retailers

:12:02.:12:06.

met Donald Trump yesterday and said they didn't want it.

:12:07.:12:13.

It has not been reflected, the import tax could affect the bottom

:12:14.:12:16.

line. Quite right. There has been a huge

:12:17.:12:22.

wave of infusing as in, looking at it this one it. They have welcomed

:12:23.:12:26.

the Trump agenda. They have argued for a lengthy period of two

:12:27.:12:31.

challenges they face on taxation and regulation, and Mr Trump's headline

:12:32.:12:34.

expectation. He will address the challenges, and it has gone down

:12:35.:12:39.

well. A border charge, a tariff, it is a tax by a different route. That

:12:40.:12:44.

is worrying, interns of the sustainability of the expected

:12:45.:12:49.

earnings rate. The index of the larger companies in the United

:12:50.:12:53.

States, pencilling in at 11 percentage points of this year, 12

:12:54.:13:02.

next. It allows the market to get reasonably to 2400 or 2500. More

:13:03.:13:07.

than that, it looks like risky territory, as we seal real evidence

:13:08.:13:11.

that we can get sustainable noninflationary growth. Given that

:13:12.:13:16.

we have had employment at less than 5% to nine months in a row in the

:13:17.:13:20.

States, it is hard to see that achieved.

:13:21.:13:23.

You will take us through the papers when you come back.

:13:24.:13:28.

Still to come: Do you fancy yourself

:13:29.:13:32.

as a James Bond... Later in the programme,

:13:33.:13:34.

we'll speak to the boss of a company providing

:13:35.:13:38.

high octane team-building exercises. Exciting or just excessive?

:13:39.:13:40.

Stay tuned and decide for yourself! You're with Business

:13:41.:13:42.

Live from BBC News. Iceland has been ranked, the store,

:13:43.:13:57.

the top supermarket for online shopping in a new Survey by Which?

:13:58.:13:59.

magazine. Waitrose has come top

:14:00.:14:01.

for instore experience. Asda has fallen to last place

:14:02.:14:04.

behind Tesco and Sainsbury's. Richard Headland is the editor of

:14:05.:14:08.

Which? magazine. a bit of a surprise, Richard.

:14:09.:14:17.

What is Iceland doing? How has it edged ahead of Waitrose

:14:18.:14:22.

and the big names you would expect, ploughing so much into online

:14:23.:14:25.

deliveries. Iceland is still a relative newcomer

:14:26.:14:30.

to the online shopping game. It is the second year running they have

:14:31.:14:34.

come top in the online charts and are doing much better as an online

:14:35.:14:41.

supermarket. Waitrose and M are coming tops again this year.

:14:42.:14:44.

What is the secret of Iceland's success? What are they doing? Is it

:14:45.:14:51.

just on cost, or is there something about the customer service? It must

:14:52.:14:54.

be that as well. They do really well on value for

:14:55.:14:57.

money. That is especially important when people are shopping online

:14:58.:15:00.

because they are doing their big shops online and getting more stuff

:15:01.:15:07.

delivered. It is also really good on substitutions, the driver service,

:15:08.:15:09.

convenient delivery slots. It is making sure you get the stuff you

:15:10.:15:14.

ordered when you expected to get it. Online is crucial now, isn't it, for

:15:15.:15:18.

all the big supermarkets, and getting that right is really

:15:19.:15:21.

essential for the bottom line. It is interesting to see Waitrose

:15:22.:15:31.

top in the bricks and mortar but bottom of the online survey, it

:15:32.:15:35.

there is scope for improvement with some of the big name, in the bricks

:15:36.:15:42.

and mortar survey you have Aldi and Liddle challenging the likes of M

:15:43.:15:47.

and Waitrose, five-stars for value for money, the quality of the

:15:48.:15:51.

products is good. Some way to go on the quality of the instore

:15:52.:15:54.

experience though. Richard, great stuff, we appreciate your time.

:15:55.:15:59.

Short and sweet. Do you shop at Iceland? I don't think I have

:16:00.:16:05.

ever... If it is cheaper I like it, I am not posh or stuck up with my

:16:06.:16:13.

shops. Preponderance Tata worker, the Tata workers quid pro quo, they

:16:14.:16:16.

voted yesterday to close their final salary pension scheme, which had

:16:17.:16:20.

assets of about 15 billion. They want to have a job. Absolutely.

:16:21.:16:30.

After eight years of negotiationses the EU par. Has approved a landmark

:16:31.:16:34.

free trade deal with Canada. Lawmakers in Strasbourg voted

:16:35.:16:38.

in favour of the so-called CETA agreement, which is hoped to add

:16:39.:16:40.

billions of dollars both Once fully implemented,

:16:41.:16:43.

the deal will eliminate 99% of the tariffs between Canada

:16:44.:16:46.

and the EU and the European Commission estimates that this

:16:47.:16:48.

could increase trade between the two Have you ever dreamt

:16:49.:16:51.

of being James Bond? One company says it can make

:16:52.:17:04.

those dreams a reality! Secret Me is a company offering spy

:17:05.:17:06.

experience weekends, which teach things like surveillance

:17:07.:17:09.

and hand-to-hand combat. The packages are run by ex-special

:17:10.:17:10.

forces operatives and are designed to let people find out how

:17:11.:17:13.

they would react in But the price tag -

:17:14.:17:16.

which can run up to ?250,000 for a fully immersive espionage

:17:17.:17:19.

experience - means only Sara Fazlali is the

:17:20.:17:21.

co-founder of Secret Me. Thafrn you. It is a huge price tag,

:17:22.:17:59.

who is paying it? We have all sorts of clients, from hedge fund manager,

:18:00.:18:05.

CEOs, A-lister, entrepreneur, to kind of just business people, and

:18:06.:18:09.

traders who want to do something different and learn about

:18:10.:18:14.

themselves, a bit more. I want to know, do I come to you and you have

:18:15.:18:22.

a something like, I don't want to kill Susanna one day as a pretend. I

:18:23.:18:29.

am fully trained. You could kill me. How does it work? We have a list of

:18:30.:18:34.

packages and you have to do the first training weekend before you

:18:35.:18:40.

can do the immersive kind of experience, I guess. And you can

:18:41.:18:43.

choose between what we offer, so you can choose whether you want to do

:18:44.:18:48.

driving or not. You can choose whether you want to do active

:18:49.:18:55.

shooter or kidnap and hostage rescues, so within the different

:18:56.:18:58.

skills you can say can we focus more on that one and we say do you want

:18:59.:19:04.

to be Lara Croft or Jason born. You can adapt and change and make it

:19:05.:19:08.

more about you and your group. The thing is, if you are an employer and

:19:09.:19:16.

you realise your CEO has spend 250,000 on a weekend experience you

:19:17.:19:21.

might be mightily... You might be might aggrieved I should say. Excuse

:19:22.:19:28.

me. I I am using it in the American term The weekend is only 10,000. Oh,

:19:29.:19:34.

?10,000 So it is a much different price tag between it and I don't

:19:35.:19:39.

think it is, is there a price tag to kind of understanding yourself, how

:19:40.:19:42.

you cope with stress, learning how to think in a different way when you

:19:43.:19:47.

are under pressure? Is it a hard sell? Or when you start it about six

:19:48.:19:52.

years ago. It was, because there is nothing else like us out there, it

:19:53.:19:55.

was a very new product and getting people to understand it is not just

:19:56.:19:59.

an experience you are learning real life skills that are useful in every

:20:00.:20:04.

day scenarios as well, is, is a challenge. But now we have we are

:20:05.:20:09.

almost six years old, people understand that, we have been out

:20:10.:20:10.

there and we get a lot of return there and we get a lot of return

:20:11.:20:15.

client, the CEOs are saying can we bring our entire team. You could get

:20:16.:20:21.

the same experience if you signed up as a reSerb visit for the Armed

:20:22.:20:27.

Forces. -- reservist. You rub offered the same kind of training.

:20:28.:20:33.

We are not really. Our focus is on the psychology behind you,

:20:34.:20:35.

understanding your psychology, how you cope with stress, how to use

:20:36.:20:40.

that with other people. We teach seduction that how the mind and body

:20:41.:20:46.

connect. I will sign up for that one! I can see you doing that one.

:20:47.:20:52.

It does remind me of The Game. That is where it came from. I saw the

:20:53.:20:56.

film. It came from two things, one is that film and I love the idea of

:20:57.:21:00.

immersive thing that challenges you, we don't have my experiences in life

:21:01.:21:04.

that help us find out what we are capable of. You can though gone on

:21:05.:21:09.

mini experience, other companies provide things like you pay for an

:21:10.:21:14.

evening to go on a date and escape from a locked room. Have you seen

:21:15.:21:19.

more firms offering similar things? It is a different ballpark, it is

:21:20.:21:24.

interesting for us, those one day experiences are something we could

:21:25.:21:28.

do but for us it is about the immersiveness, we have special

:21:29.:21:34.

forces and intelligence officers is as intruck stores, you are are

:21:35.:21:37.

really being taught from the best of the best. If you turn round at the

:21:38.:21:43.

end and you not good at surveillance you will never be, you understand

:21:44.:21:46.

what that means and where your assets is lie. We will leave it

:21:47.:21:52.

there, we really appreciate it. I am glad you said your name because I

:21:53.:21:56.

called you Sarah before, it is Sarah.

:21:57.:22:01.

-- Sara. In a moment we will take you through

:22:02.:22:06.

the business pages but first a quick reminder of how to get in touch with

:22:07.:22:07.

What other business stories has the media been

:22:44.:22:45.

James Bevan from CCLA Investment Management joins us again.

:22:46.:22:49.

We are are have been talking about the dock -- Nokia, the come back of

:22:50.:22:57.

the Nokia, that hand set that was so popular and went out of fashion, but

:22:58.:23:02.

apparently, Nokia may be thinking about a revamp, do you think it will

:23:03.:23:07.

fit well in this current market? If one were to say what surveys tell us

:23:08.:23:14.

about people want, they want simplicity, they wand indestruct

:23:15.:23:18.

built, they want low cost, simplicity of operation and a better

:23:19.:23:25.

battery. The bat triis fabulous, one Samsung has a better one but very

:23:26.:23:28.

few people wanted it because it didn't have the same sort of classic

:23:29.:23:34.

functionality that the Nokia had. I worry in bringing it back they will

:23:35.:23:37.

miss the fact that people would like it slightly upgraded, so they would

:23:38.:23:42.

like basic additional features like Facebook. Smart stuff about it. Can

:23:43.:23:49.

I say, thank you for your tweet, we asked you what other retro product

:23:50.:23:56.

would you bring back. Terry said the Walkman. I agree with live in a

:23:57.:24:00.

bubble of history where we remember the things we enjoy, we don't

:24:01.:24:05.

remember how irritating it was when the cassettes got stuck in the

:24:06.:24:11.

machine, I mentioned, a couple of other ones... Game Boy, that, Nokia

:24:12.:24:22.

hand sets are sought after, the early versions aren't they, even

:24:23.:24:27.

mobile phones... It be the 59 euros for the new one, that is the sort of

:24:28.:24:31.

thing people going away for a weekend can take it and if they lose

:24:32.:24:35.

it or break it, so what? It is not the same problem if you lose your

:24:36.:24:39.

smartphone. Talking about battery life. Mineral is actually getting,

:24:40.:24:46.

cobalt is getting really popular, hedge funds are stockpiling cobalt

:24:47.:24:51.

and that is because there is demand from the ultra long life batteries.

:24:52.:24:56.

Interestingly the consensus expectation is that the price will

:24:57.:25:02.

fall from here through 2017 and 2018, the market is in great turmoil

:25:03.:25:05.

in terms of trying to understand where it is going from here. There

:25:06.:25:10.

are ethical issues because a lot of the cobalt is mined in thing on go

:25:11.:25:17.

using child labour, this will cause a furore. Amazon on the brink of

:25:18.:25:21.

launching its fashion label, do you think they could make a success?

:25:22.:25:26.

Yes, they have been successful in food retailing. They have

:25:27.:25:30.

demonstrated delivery and quality matter more than anything, they can

:25:31.:25:34.

do both. They do. London Fashion Week launching... They have brands

:25:35.:25:38.

already, they are doing a certain number of products and they are

:25:39.:25:42.

demonstrating success. Thank you James.

Good morning. Bit more sunshine round today compared with yesterday,

:25:49.:26:10.

it is zrieer foreEngland and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland more of a

:26:11.:26:13.

breeze compared with yesterday, that breeze comes because of a low

:26:14.:26:18.

pressure to the north of Scotland, winds, touching gale force for a

:26:19.:26:23.

few. We will see a lot more showers round, showers in western Scotland

:26:24.:26:27.

this morning, only one or two reaching the east. Showers easing

:26:28.:26:30.

into the afternoon but Northern Ireland after a bright Morning

:26:31.:26:32.

Clouding over with rain. Much of England and Wales mist and fog this

:26:33.:26:37.

morning clearing to leave a largely dry and sunny day, especially in

:26:38.:26:40.

southern County, pleasant in the sunshine too, with a gentle breeze,

:26:41.:26:45.

could see temperatures round Torbay, Exeter getting to 14. Other spots

:26:46.:26:52.

close to 12, 13. Cloud into the Midlands, the outside chance of a

:26:53.:26:57.

shower. Patchy rain to end the day. Damper end in Northern Ireland,

:26:58.:27:02.

heavy bursts of rain, Scotland, showers tend to ease off, as does

:27:03.:27:05.

the breeze, and some will finish the day with a bit of sunshine.

:27:06.:27:09.

Temperatures above where they should be for the time of year. The rain in

:27:10.:27:13.

Northern Ireland will come and go all night long. Extending in north

:27:14.:27:17.

Wales, parts of north-west England and with a bit of light rain towards

:27:18.:27:21.

the south-east, that cloudier zone is where temperatures will hold up.

:27:22.:27:25.

To the south-west, may get a frost, greater chance of a frost, North

:27:26.:27:31.

East England fog patches. It will take a while to shift. Lovely bright

:27:32.:27:36.

day, lots of sur, a bit of sunshine at times in the south-west and South

:27:37.:27:40.

Wales. Not as much as today, from Northern Ireland, through north-west

:27:41.:27:44.

England, down to the Midland and the south-east, fairly cloudy day, some

:27:45.:27:47.

sunny spells, temperatures where you get the sunshine and with light wind

:27:48.:27:51.

feeling on the pleasant side, most above where it should be for the

:27:52.:27:54.

time of year. Into the weekend, we stay with the temperatures above

:27:55.:27:59.

where they should be. Nights on the cool side where skies are clear,

:28:00.:28:02.

some sunshine round for all of us throughout the weekend. There will

:28:03.:28:05.

be rain at times too. Northern and western parts of the UK, strong and

:28:06.:28:10.

gusty winds, that rain Superintendent by the end of the

:28:11.:28:13.

day. The further south and east you stay dry. Into Sunday we start with

:28:14.:28:21.

patchy rain, that clears through to sunshine, a sunnier start. Wind into

:28:22.:28:24.

Scotland later in the day. Enjoy your Thursday.
