so, we had a beat on those units. perhaps, that is why we can see the stop moving higher. little lowera after exports suffered a second straight double-digit decline. he shipments plunged 11% in april after a 16% drop in march. this comes a few days after richemont seized a challenging market. guy? guy: thank you very much indeed, i, nejra. let's go from nejra to nigeria. the decision will be made later today. reporter, our nigeria who is only phone now. so, what are we going to get today, paul? are we finally going to see the
3:33 am
valuation we have been talking about? paul: yes, we could possibly get that. the rates could go up from 12% to 14.5%. i is according to a bloomberg survey. what investors will be looking at most closely is what the central bank does with the currency. banks, including archelau barclays and goldman sachs, think they will weaken it by introducing the exchange rate. that is because of the dollar shortages in the country getting worse and worse and the country's fx continues to fall the vice president hinted at the devaluation, saying it was something the government was considering as part of a review of the fx system. a big question is, whether the president has made it clear it is his, not the central bank's.
3:34 am
he li likened this to a merger back in february. he has got no other option and so far, we do not know what his thinking is. he has not said anything in response to the vice president's comments. guy: have we not already effectively seen this happen? we are seeing some energy importers, some companies being permitted to buy at a different rate. is it not already becoming part of the landscape? yes, many nigerians and a small businesses are already using the unofficial, or rates,arket, for the which are much weaker than the official one. the problem is, the commercial banks are not allowed to trade at anything that is much weaker than the official rate. so, the bank market is still pegged and that is what will
3:35 am
have to change if the country is going to adjust the dollar inflow. so, big asset managers wanting to invest in nigeria for example, they can't come into the country using the unofficial market rate. they would not be permitted to use it. until the inter-bank rate is trade atand banks can something other than the official exchange rate, we will not see inflows. guy: great stuff, paul wallace, joining us from lagos. let's continue the conversation with a man who knows a thing or two about investing. kenya surprised us yesterday and nigeria today? >> well, we were aware of the possibility of the hike rates. and hopefully, the central bank will allow the banks to sell the dollars at different exchange rates.
3:36 am
they can purchase dollars, but they don't have anybody to buy them from. we hope the central bank offers the opportunity for banks to trade away from the official market price. guy: what happens if they don't? charles: if they don't, we could end up with shortages and the hike in the oil price that we saw, that has helped in the short-term. but if people cannot access the dollars to purchase the fuel, we will have fuel shortages. guy: you look at countries that have pegs and you look at the problems that i have having. is it becoming increasingly clear that most of these pegs are unsustainable? clears: it is becoming that that is true. we have seen nigeria hike rates, and that is an attempt to hold the currency in place. kenya yesterday cut rates 100 basis points, saturday pakistan cut by 25 basis points.
3:37 am
that is a function that they can afford to do so. they have the floating exchange rate. in fact, they have currencies appreciating. that is what nigeria would like to do, get the currency to a positive place. guy: how much is this affecting the oil price and the difficulties they are having in the delta? charles: this is certainly about the oil price and the delta is not happening, but the underlying issue comes back to the president himself. the last time he was in power in 1985, nigeria's economy was growing at a percent. -- was growing at 8%. thehink it was to do with oil price collapsing in 1986. the difficulty there is the president's fued is influencing
3:38 am
the currency debate at the moment. guy: where is the good news story in kenya at the moment? charles: there is an east africa story working pretty well. kenya is going at 6%. tanzania has seen good credit growth. the new president is fighting corruption. so, what is special about east africa? they tend to be importers of oil and natural energy, for now. they are the beneficiaries, like pakistan and turkey, who micah cutprices -- who might oil prices today. guy: let's have a quick conversation about turkey. we might see rates being raised today. but the biggest concern surrounds what is going to happen in terms of the government and cuts. and what will happen in terms of the reform agenda.

how do you analyze turkey right now? charles: we have denmark on democratization and so on, pointing out that turkey will not lose democracy. it is too rich to lose democracy, but there is a weakening of democracy happening. that is concerning investors. thathift in the law occurred last week will remove immunity, and that will hurt turkey's hopes to be a part of the european union. in fact, i think it makes it almost impossible for now. that is yet another obstacle for investors looking at turkey. it is the route to a better future. guy: you are talking about the cut and the fact that we might see that coming from the central bank. he tried to play a steady hand. he tried to lean in against the was happening in terms of the economy and what was happening politically. he is gone now, so does the central bank have any credit in terms of what is happening in turkey?

charles: that governor was seen as the man's man, but no longer. th have seen the same aswiht the prime minister. he is not right for the job. whoever is standing up and acting in an independent way in turkey is having problems right now and that is not good for the market. guy: presumably, you are watching what is happening in washington. you saidyes, but as this morning, the markets are taking this into account. so, what we are looking for is, where is the real value, anyway? south africa, many problems, and yet, the south african rand on a 20 year view, you have rarely seen the rand this cheap in the last 20 years. so, notwithstanding all of the problems. guy: there is so much bad news priced in now that it looks like there could be an investment cut. charles: but the rand does look

guy: 43 minutes past the hour. welcome back. you are watching "on the move." french demonstrators are getting aggressive and fears are shortages.arding meanwhile, the offices of the socialist party have been vandalized in several cities just north of the river. this has been happening across the country and happened yesterday. we have the details from paris. greg, talk to me about these fuel shortages. how serious are they? greg: well, if you are a driver, pretty serious. about 20% of the french dry,nations are completely or lacking one kind of you will or another. that is 240,000 around the

country. see theurs, you can difference it has made. every morningork and there is a gas station i normally don't notice and this morning, there was a huge line, several blocks long. there was a lot of anger flaring between drivers. the government is trying to be reassuring, saying this is a question of panicky drivers unnecessarily filling up their tanks. there is evidence that that is true. a family some gas stations have reported three times the normal number of clients. the government has also said they have strategic reserves, but whatever. there is still a very uneasy sense among drivers in this country right now. guy: we will watch with interest. greg, thank you very much indeed. mark carney will now face brexit questions from parliament's treasury select committee this morning in his last public engagement before a pre-eu vote.
3:46 am
joining us now to discuss the referendum is the labor mp. she claims voting to leave is a left wing move. good morning, kate. kate: good morning. guy: talk to me where you are. we are wondering where the labour party is and where you are and how it all fits together. how strong is the brexit party? kate: within the parliamentary party, there are not many members of parliament that want to leave. there are about 20 of us. but within the country, labor supporters and labor votes, there are probably about a 35% to 40%, or maybe more, of voters who want to leave. it is very different from the leadership. labor used to be a very anti-eu party. event changed under tony blair -- it then changed under tony blair.
3:47 am
and of course now, our news leader, who was very anti-eu, has decided it is in the best interest of the labour party to have a united view. our view is that we will never reform the eu. that is why we are happy with a trade. politicalant the structure that you would not have in the united states between the united states and say, mexico and canada. you trade freely, but don't have a mexican court overruling the united states court. we want to have a relationship with the eu that is cooperative, but that also recognizes we are living in a global world now and we, as the fifth-largest economy, should be looking internationally and become independent. guy: is this an economic argument for you? it sounds like a political argument. kate: for me, underlying this is democracy and sovereignty. i have seen treaty after treaty change the way the european

union works, which is very different from the way people voted in 1973. now is the opportunity for the british people do have their say. it has changed and taken more and more powers away from the british parliament. and of course, if the five president's report, which has been released recently, was to come to fruition, there is only one track for the european union and that is going in the direction of the brussels party. so, it is democratic to me. at underlining that all is confidence in my country and a feeling that we could do so much better outside the shackles of a really, economically shrinking eu in relation to the rest of the world. guy: so, what the make of the economic case that has been forward by the treasury? mark carney will be testifying in front of mp's later on and his view is very clearly that there will be a massive short-term economic it to the british economy.
3:49 am
kate: it is short-term anyway, but the reality is that all of the treasury forecasts have been wrong. so have the international monetary funds. so, of all these bodies that are piling in at the request of our prime minister a to say how dreadful it would be if we were to leave, they were all wrong in saying the world would end if we did not join the single currency. so, i don't have a great deal of faith in these bodies coming in tos ay these things. there are a lot of uncertainties, yes. uncertainties about remaining in the eu because of what is happening with the eurozone and the fact that we are not in it. the uncertainty about leaving to me, is that we will be in control, but the uncertainty of remaining is that we will lose more and more control. and of course, we get back control of our borders. guy: you are talking about the

democratic deficit. do you think there is a democratic deficit that surrounds this debate? the views seem to be incredible, in terms of the extremes they are taking. and the campaign fear, as the front page of private eye put it, seems to have taken over. how can we get the british people to make an informed decision on something that is so important, given the nature of the debate we have? are you disappointed? kate: yes, i am disappointed. i think the prime minister could have led a very differently on this, having said a few months ago that there was no fear about leaving the eu. he was pretending he was going up to negotiate and that we were a great country. suddenly, all of these dreadful things are going to happen to us and each morning you wake up wondering, who was going to say what now? i think that has then led to the other side saying things that are slightly exaggerated too. i do think in the end, i have a

great confidence in the british public. we are a very common sense people and believe on june 23rd, many of them willv vote on a feeling of instinct. anybody who looks at this sensibly cannot see that long-term we are going to be better off. but working internationally, globally cooperating, we can do all of those things. market is not a single in japan is not a single market, but they trade with the eu. there is absolutely nothing to fear for the british peopleon june 23. guy: thank you very much indeed. up next, the expectations are expected to improve in may for germany. ♪
