  • CARL AZUZ: Hi, I'm Carl Azuz.

  • And welcome to CNN 10.

  • We're returning to our daily current events coverage today.

  • And of course, we're happy to have you watching.

  • Our first stop is in Southeast Asia,

  • where US President Donald Trump is

  • scheduled to arrive on Tuesday.

  • Air Force One touches down in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam.

  • And the American leader will meet with Vietnam's leader

  • President Nguyen Phu Trong.

  • That's not the main reason why President

  • Trump traveled there though.

  • It's for a second summit with Kim Jong

  • Un, the leader of North Korea.

  • Their meeting is scheduled to take place

  • on Wednesday and Thursday.

  • No one knows yet what will come out of this historic event.

  • It's only the second face-to-face meeting

  • that sitting leaders from these two countries have ever had.

  • Critics say their first summit, which

  • was held in June of last year, didn't produce

  • enough concrete results, though it

  • was considered a diplomatic success for both leaders.

  • So observers will be watching to see what

  • specific plans of action are made by President

  • Trump and Leader Kim.

  • The US wants North Korea to show that it's

  • shutting down its controversial nuclear program.

  • North Korea wants the US to normalize relations

  • with the communist state.

  • Another possibility here, that the Korean War will officially

  • be brought to an end.

  • A cease fire stopped the fighting in 1953,

  • but North Korea and South Korea along with the nations that

  • supported them have never officially

  • declared that the war is over.

  • The setting for this event in Vietnam,

  • another communist country that's been a rival of the United

  • States, provide symbolism that American officials

  • hope to take advantage of.

  • WILL RIPLEY: These three flags, the United States, Vietnam,

  • and North Korea, line the streets of Hanoi,

  • the Vietnamese capital known for its iconic landmarks

  • like the The Huc Bridge, a symbol of this city's past

  • which also includes the Vietnam War, which left

  • much of this city in ruins.

  • And then the city was rebuilt, an economic miracle here

  • in Vietnam as a result of normalized relations

  • with the United States.

  • And perhaps, a lesson for North Korean leader

  • Kim Jong Un who was on his way here

  • for his historic second summit with the US

  • President Donald Trump.

  • This is the international media center.

  • Thousands of foreign journalists are descending on Hanoi.

  • And the Vietnamese government knows that the eyes

  • of the world are watching.

  • They've even flown in these flowers

  • from Da Lat in the central highlands of Vietnam.

  • And you can see cleaning crews all over the city,

  • sprucing things up, making sure everything is perfect.

  • Behind me here is the infamous Hanoi Hilton

  • where American prisoners of war were detained, interrogated,

  • and tortured during the Vietnam War,

  • including the late US Senator John McCain.

  • This building really is a symbol of just

  • how far Vietnam has come since those dark days during the war.

  • A symbol of how a country can recover from a conflict

  • with the United States, normalized relations,

  • and end up with a booming economy,

  • and a better relationship with the rest of the world.

  • It's a message that US President Donald Trump will undoubtedly

  • be trying to hit home when he meets

  • with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un here later this week.

  • Will Ripley, CNN Hanoi.

  • CARL AZUZ: 10 second trivia.

  • Which of these countries has the largest

  • fishing industry in the world?

  • India, China, Indonesia or United States?

  • When it comes to aquaculture or underwater agriculture,

  • China leads the world with the largest fishing industry.

  • Another event coming up is the Brexit, the British exit

  • from the European Union, which is scheduled

  • to happen on March 29.

  • One big question is whether it will

  • happen with a deal in place.

  • If the British government and the European Union

  • can agree on the terms on how Britain will split off,

  • the whole process could go more easily and smoothly.

  • If they can't, what's called a no deal Brexit could happen,

  • which carries enough uncertainty to temporarily

  • hurt the British economy.

  • We've mentioned that no country has

  • left the European Union since it was

  • officially established in 1993.

  • It's an incredibly complicated process.

  • And you get a sense of that from how it's impacting people

  • in Britain's fishing industry.

  • - You wouldn't think that this has much

  • to do with global politics.

  • Fishing accounts for a tiny percentage

  • of the UK economy, just 0.12%.

  • But the industry has been at the heart of the Brexit debate

  • over and over again.

  • This is a look, in three parts, at how the British fishing

  • industry embodies the hopes, fears,

  • and complexities of the UK leaving the European Union.

  • The story starts at the coast, Portsmouth, England.

  • Matt is one of nearly 12,000 fishermen working in the UK.

  • Taking back control of British fishing waters for fishermen

  • like him was a key promise at the pro Brexit

  • campaign in 2016.

  • One poll before the referendum showed

  • that 92% of British fishermen supported Brexit.

  • MATT VARNDELL: It wasn't the only reason I voted to leave,

  • but it was one of the main issues.

  • I would class this industry as being the endangered species.

  • Is there anything I can do personally to change it?

  • No.

  • It's all down to the powers of Westminster.

  • - British eurosceptics have long been

  • angry at having to share their fishing

  • waters with other EU countries.

  • They see it as losing sovereignty

  • over a precious national resource.

  • MATT VARNDELL: You can't blame the European fishermen.

  • At the end of the day, if I had the opportunity and a vessel

  • big enough to go to France and exploit their fishing grounds,

  • which yielded a lot more cash, I would do it.

  • - From the coast, these fish are sold to the UK's fish markets.

  • Fish traders are the beating heart of the British fish

  • industry getting British fish to markets, overseas, or at home,

  • and bringing in seafood from abroad.

  • The UK imports 70%-80% of the fish Brits eat and exports

  • up to 80% of its catches.

  • Currently, traders like Eric can export fish to the EU

  • without tariffs.

  • But after Brexit, his goods might be taxed at the border.

  • ERIC MCLEOD: We export to mainly Spain, France,

  • and we used to do a lot with Italy.

  • If another country wants our fish, and I'm sure they will,

  • they will have to pay the increased charges.

  • - While industries across the UK are nervous about the effects

  • of losing free trade with the EU,

  • Eric shrugs off any concerns.

  • ERIC MCLEOD: Brexit is Brexit.

  • I'm unafraid of it.

  • For me as a fisherman and fish merchant, I'll be very happy.

  • - This is the end of the line--

  • The kitchen of a fish restaurant.

  • At Cornerstone in London, British fish

  • is always on the menu.

  • But often the hands serving it come from further afield.

  • 75% of waiters and waitresses in the UK hospitality industry

  • come from other EU countries.

  • TOM BROWN: All of the staff that we

  • have that work on the front of house are non British citizens.

  • And they see it as a career.

  • A restaurant manager in France is regarded the same way

  • as like a bank manager.

  • Jobs in the front of house very often by British people

  • are seen as a stop gap.

  • - Under EU rules, a European citizen

  • has the right to live and work in any EU state.

  • And the British government says the millions

  • of Europeans already living in the UK

  • would be allowed to stay post Brexit.

  • But curtailing immigration into the UK

  • was one of the rallying cries of the pro Brexit

  • referendum campaign.

  • And that has some restaurant owners nervous.

  • TOM BROWN: It's more the uncertainty of it.

  • I mean, I probably know as much the government

  • do about what's going to happen with Brexit, which is nothing.

  • If suddenly we had to help all our staff of pay loads of money

  • for visas, if we had to lose a lot of staff very quickly,

  • it would be a massive, massive hurdle for us

  • to get over as a restaurant.

  • - From the port to the plate, this fishy food chain

  • bears some of Brexit's most important questions.

  • ELI WYMAN: This is Megachile pluto, the world's largest

  • bee, and something I've dreamed of seeing for about nine years.

  • CARL AZUZ: If you think modern cars

  • feature way too much plastic, here's a classic

  • that has them all beat.

  • It's a Volkswagen camper van made from LEGOs.

  • Its builders used computer software

  • to calculate how many plastic bricks they'd need.

  • Then they assembled 400,000 of them

  • and included a pitched roof, a 1960s style kitchen,

  • and a sliding side door.

  • At 1,500 pounds, it weighs less than a real van.

  • With a six week build time, it took a lot longer to assemble.

  • Well, it has a number of Van-atics.

  • It's not for everyone.

  • Some folks don't brick for LEGOs.

  • Some already have too much on their plate.

  • Some don't want to have to tile you that at any minute

  • their car could fall to pieces.

  • It gives them a pretty bad atti-tube.

  • Others can LEGO of all that because these are the building

  • blocks that make them plastic.

  • I'm Carl Azuz and that's CNN.
