donald trump's commerce secretary an aide to canadian prime minister justin trudeau and queen elizabeth the second just some of the people revealed so far in a huge leak of financial documents showing how the super rich have been using secret offshore accounts in tax havens more than thirteen million files called the paradise papers were leaked in the offshore law firm applebee cover an estimated ten trillion dollars held in offshore tax havens in most cases it's perfectly legal but critics argue allowing the mega rich to hide from the tax authorities is unfair and governments have been slow to address the issue the offshore finance system is also highly secretive ought to be opening the way for illegal activity the law firm appleby though says it's common in the papers will show no evidence of wrongdoing but to sullivan is editor of the organized crime and corruption reporting project he says the leaks highlight the imbalance of how societies wealth is managed. there's a new global industry. that caters to money that moves around the world and
this money blues to tax savings and it's used to evade taxes to hide assets to steal money used by organized crime it's used by large businesses and what this is really doing is it's allowing globalizing money you're allowed to move your money legally into places where you don't have to pay taxes and the problem is is that separate the countries with which we're getting taxes when i was bought or a plane was the larger issue is you know whether it's tax mitigation or tax evasion the problem is it's not it's not fair because you only can really do this if you have a large amount of money there's a criminal services industry that they're trying to cater to this market and i was people to do this and regular people are just not allowed to do that donald trump has been meeting business leaders in japan as part of his tour of asia earlier he had lunch and played golf with a prime minister shinzo lobby in his address to business leaders who said trade
with japan was not saying an open i'll just him scott hietala has the latest now from the japanese capital scott so president trump started his second day in japan in the u.s. embassy where he made those comments about u.s. japan trade what more did he have to say a definite focus on the trade there and between these two nations and that's something that that canada trip was talking about a lot and now president trump is talking has been talking about and really has been kind of a top of his political agenda and that is what he calls unfair trade deals and trade deficits with nations and there is a trade deficit between the united states and japan and that's why he was saying what he did earlier after he met with those business leaders both from the united states and from japan and he went out a little bit further to and this is what he had to say. this morning i am pleased to have an opportunity to discuss how we can strengthen and improve. the economic ties between the united states and japan. and i have to say for the
last many decades japan has been winning you do know that that's what's in store for the rest of the day for the president. well right now there is a closed door summit meeting going on right now at a state guest house between those two leaders this came just after a working lunch and then before that the president had an audience with the emperor and empress at the imperial palace here in tokyo so we have this this meeting right now that's going on and we expect that to be about another hour and probably actually more half hour at this stage and then out of that there will be a press statement and then hopefully some questions from the media here in tokyo after these two leaders of emerge from this now it's interesting because you know north korea was always has also been brought up today in earlier comments by president trump and then kind of sidebar comments at the meeting at the lunch so north korea we're expecting to hear about the situation and how these two nations these two very close allies are handling their defense when it comes to the
situation on the korean peninsula that will come out probably in this press conference in just the next maybe half hour forty five minutes so we're looking at that they're going to be discussing that if they're going to be any revelations about what their how they're going to handle things differently with north korea we don't know just yet but we do know that their vote working very closely on coordination between the two countries obviously it's a very big issue for both of the countries here and then later in the day the president and the prime minister will go to a former abductee japanese citizen who was taken by north korea were turned to this country more than ten years ago who meet with him now this is very interesting because that issue here abductees here in japan taken to north korea is a big issue for prime minister shinzo so president trump going over to visit one of these four former abductees is very important fortunes politically here in the country that's going to happen after we hear this press conference and then the trip will pretty much be capped off by
a state banquet on monday evening here in tokyo and then tuesday morning present from gets on a plane gets on air force one and goes to seoul or i just got in tokyo scott thank you let's talk a. to tom he kowtowed to do chief he was a special advisor to the cabinets of shin's abhi and is now a professor at university graduate school joins us live via skype from tokyo professor taniguchi let's talk first about trade between japan and the u.s. president trump said a few hours ago that trade right now between both allies isn't free and it's not reciprocal so what do you think he meant by that well he meant by what he exactly said perhaps to the japanese government should. trade deficit the united states reserve be japan at the moment as opposed to the overall. united states has developed these are the world is less than ten percent it's actually
nine point three percent and instead the japanese side over the last twenty five years has continued to invest in the united states and thereby created a stunning number of eight hundred thirty thousand jobs in the united states and that's the sort of thing i think i've been saying to mr tranter and this is the second time that president trump and prime minister be a meeting how is the relationship between the two men i mean when trump was on the campaign trail he was quite outspoken against japan talking about protectionism an imbalance trade. well that appears to be a light go over the time since mr trump was elected. and donald trump have met a number of times and exchanged views over the phone more than. more than any leaders between the united states and other countries so i think the chemistry
and personal luck or that they have built with each other cannot be better and north korea of course is the other big issue on the agenda that both countries need to deal with and how will they move forward on the issue of north korea and its nuclear program it is now top line for the international community not to mention the united states and japan and to give. pressure to the north korean side and that's something that north korea should know better and that's something that the united states and japan have reiterated a number of times. and when when donald trump arrived in japan he tried to reassure regional allies including japan that the military would have the resources to keep peace and perhaps defend freedom so how will this go down with would marry japanese people what do they think about all this i think it's one of the most reassuring messages that many people in japan have heard for some time and for them i should
say the scope and wit of the u.s. strategy has broadened to include not only the pacific but also the indian ocean and so the u.s. strategy seems to have merged with the japanese government. has been active professor thomas eco taniguchi thank you very much indeed for your time you're welcome. time for a short break here and al-jazeera when we come back the catalyst for its ministers afraid but under strict conditions in belgium spain seeks their extradition. companies officials announce a new presidential election two years after widespread protests broke out of a president could be his refusal to step down more than today.
