Week ahead: China President state visit to UAE, Putin-Trump summit.

Summary: As the World Cup winds down, countries return focus to the game of politics

Ed Clowes, Staff Reporter

Dubai: The World Cup has come to an end, but that doesn't mean the international drama is over.

This week, Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled to meet US President Donald Trump in a private summit that will reportedly not feature any aides or journalists.

With the eyes of Washington DC trained sharply on Helsinki, in Finland, there will be much speculation over the contents of the pair's meeting.

Will this rock the markets, or is the world used to political controversy by now? Time will tell, but with the indictment of 12 Russian soldiers for their involvement in the Democrat hacking scandal of 2016, things are certainly heating up back in the US as Trump and Putin meet this week.

Elsewhere, the UAE will play host to one of its largest state visits ever, welcoming Chinese President Xi Jinping on a three day trip to the country.

We discuss what his trip may entail, and what to look out for when he touches down.

Lastly, it's earning season, and that means Sarah is excited. We preview some of the companies set to disclose their second quarter performances, and what to expect when they do so.
