color of a warm welcome i'm under toci ma. the german loss of parliament has overwhelmingly elected outgoing finance minister bulls gunk choice as the new parliamentary president five hundred one of the seven hundred nine members of the newly elected blunder star voted for sure the veteran member of chancellor angela merkel's conservative democrats is the longest serving lawmaker in the country in his acceptance speech sure bill stressed the need for parliamentarians to lead by example and to work together you also encourage members of parliament to maintain a respectful tone. obviously your manner of the way in which we talk with one another here in parliament can be a role model for society obviously we shouldn't one another here rather we have seen that this has occasionally occurred in other parliaments because of me and we
4:03 pm
don't want to get verbally abusive either farm or we want to show that we're going to salute issues with out losing basic decency. that first of all skunk should be speaking a short while ago our correspondent from our political political desk it brady joins me now from the blunder star struck you about both can sure be as follows address as parliamentary president. well emerita they were really two words that stood out in wolfgang schauble speech today and they were respect closely followed by decency and this is a message that was clearly sent to the new members of the new parliament in germany especially those ninety two members of the f.d.a. parliamentary group he did however call he encouraged more discussion but also to reach compromise and of course this is new territory for the german parliament he had dressed up as well in his speech saying as of course this reflects a new aspect as well in german society and this is going to be
4:04 pm
a very interesting four years now in the in the coming four years of this german parliament to see exactly how by showing the other party's deal with the f.d.a. it's a far right alternative for germany who have just entered the parliament for the first time and can't give a full context what is the role of president in parliament in germany and what does scheuer bring to his new position. well the real idea behind his position is this idea of balance and he'll be direct in the debates once they get underway and he'll also be able to remind the m.p.'s of the rules he'll be able to say who is allowed to speak and of course at the same time he was not allowed to speak at that moment of course show you play he has decades of experience in german politics he is currently the longest serving german m.p. and he's a tough politician if we think back to join the euro zone crisis he did make many
4:05 pm
enemies but at the same time he has always managed to maintain his respect and that kind of tough stems might come in very good useful in this new german parliament which of course his own president did we have six parliamentary groups compared to four in the last one a record seven hundred nine m.p.'s and of course the arrival of the a.f.d. but each party in the german parliament gets to nominate a vice president the voters just taken place an hour and as expected it was controversial why. well dillard's no here is the nomination from the f.t. after the first round of vote he hasn't made it three of course each parliamentary group so each of the six party groups has nominated a figure and glassner has not made it through so now there is currently as we speak a second election in parliament taking place and that can go up to three parliament the elections will be three of those and then it will be up to the a.f.p.
4:06 pm
will have to see what happens and see if they will nominate a new candidate for the f.d.a. parliamentary group vice president for the bundestag still there where you are we look at a report on the f.d.a. and the far right party as we heard is in parliament it was almost thirteen percent of the vote and there's growing concern about it. there for us to really get into it it's. your. time. germany's politicians are adopting a new vocabulary words such as fatherland love identity country and pride the author carolyn and these politicians are copying germany's nationalist party was and charging them with the decisive factor is how strongly the f.t. can continue to influence public discussions and determine how certain topics are
4:07 pm
discussed in my opinion the a.f.p. have been surprisingly successful in doing this. for the car. if the politicians take their place in germany's bundestag for the first time today their influence seems to be bigger than the number of votes the party won in germany's recent elections. we will take back our country and our people. a sign of the times says callahan's finest man one of the internet's will fathers of germany's new right. the success of the f.t. isn't simply because it managed to unite nearly thirteen percent of voters behind it their success is linked to grab a trend a bigger movement the end of which we can't physically. and this trend is already changing the climate for those from a non german background people such as as roku joke who often speaks from was limbs
4:08 pm
in germany. mentioned i'm going to the experience of germans with an immigrant background is that attitudes are getting harsher and us. have heard but at the same time they're being told their needs are on the political agenda i think it's extremely dangerous just sixty but. a changing climate many politicians don't know how to react. to election victories in europe show two radically different approaches france's emmanuelle macross water fight the far right austria sebastien kurds poach the far rights topics don't let the right set the agenda ones catalin. they would or you can close off the right flank by becoming rightwing yourself that's an illusion you have to decide do i want to live in a secular open democracy if so then you have to defend these principles.
4:09 pm
vice man from the new right believes any attack is positive doesn't try to matters as mao said is that to be attacked by the enemy is not a bad thing like doesn't often it's a good thing because it clearly shows we're on to something and the same is real competition fatherland love of country identity terms made popular by the. but who will now set the lead for how these terms are used a balancing act for germany's bundestag. and returning at a kid brady at the understand give me got some idea about the controversy about the party in a report but why is there so much concern about this far right party being in parliament. well of course first of all amrita you have the concern here that the discussion in the german parliament is now going to take a shift to the right and on top of that we also have the debate which has been ongoing since last month's elections of how do the other parties deal with the
4:10 pm
a.f.d. now being in parliament of course if you completely ignore the m.p.'s that are in there and that suggestions in parliament then you're also ignoring the twelve point six percent of german forces who voted for those m.p.'s and to the german parliament but give them too much time and that could use their profile on germany's political stage kid cudi at the bundesbank thank you very much for that assessment. this article look at some other stories making news around the world austria's newly elected conservative leader sebastian kurtz has announced he will try to form a coalition government with the country's rightwing freedom party a decision that was widely expected koertzen the freedom party had shown a way to bring about change in austria together. hong kong democracy protest leader nathan and joshua wong i have been released from prison on the pair were jailed in

4:18 pm
prizes. but first ben joins me for business news and germany's job boom continues ben it showed us that radio and there are lots of reasons why germany's economy so ways relied on highly specialized small and medium sized enterprises the famed german may have started now a study is conversion and the role they play in the country's economic health is more vital than ever. a new study from the german development bank has shown that sales from german s.-a m.-e. companies like this manufacturer of specialized palms rose steeply yet again in twenty sixteen they were up by nearly four percent to four and a half trillion euros that's the strongest growth for five years unlike in the past however much of that growth is being powered by domestic demand rather than exports and in a kind of feedback loop domestic demand is in turn being driven by excellent employment
4:19 pm
figures as the middle east and companies hire more staff to cope with rising orders at the end of august germany's federal employment agency announced that only around two point five million people were currently looking for work pushing the unemployment rate to the lowest level since german reunification more than twenty five years ago. today a study on germany sameas coincides with coalition talks in building a new government in berlin these businesses want to shore up their future let's talk about that with york so a chief economist of the k f w banking group is standing by for us in frankfurt thanks for coming on the show what do these firms have to fear do you think. well there actually really going through a period of strength so turnover grow with ease at the record high and the same the sector is the largest employer in the german economy particularly the services industries which helps further develop our as amy sector into new areas of business
4:20 pm
when you think of digitalisation for example in this will of course be one of the demands on the german industry to get ready for the digitalisation that is going on everywhere we also we need a higher level of investment in some of areas of the same me sector particularly the manufacturing sector where we see that the number of firms that are investing in future technologies is not as high as we would like it to be ok so investment has been slowed from the as a means what about the government and the time and money it's investing in digitalization how would you describe its track record. we have we know that in germany we have in an international comparison a relatively good digital infrastructure but there's always room for improvement in particular in terms of the speed of the of the internet in germany but the
4:21 pm
government is very well aware of this and everybody's aware of this and this will be one of the their policy areas i'm very sure about this and the semi sector is certainly ready to do more here this will be a step by step process like every innovation is companies are careful and slowly moving into these new technologies in particularly in the digital age there is more to it than investing in hardware there is a lot of sort of software there is a lot of knowledge a lot of education and this all has to move at the same speed and i'm optimistic that with these numbers that have come out for two thousand and sixteen in from the first half of two thousand and seventeen we will see a lot more in this area in the future but is good enough because digitalisation could wipe out millions of jobs in germany just today we've heard from the head of big common i.t. association saying that huff of all jobs could disappear in the next couple decades
4:22 pm
what's that going to mean for small and medium sized businesses. well we have. a need for march stronger productivity growth so i am quite confident that the digital technologies will actually improve productivity in the economic system in germany first of all secondly we have a population particularly a working age population that is retiring in large numbers over the next few years and in this context digital technologies and further modernization of our business process these interactions with clients all over the world will actually facilitate growth in germany rather than be a problem ok an optimistic yoke so on a chief economist of the k f w banking group thank you very much for your analysis according frankfurt has rejected a deal to drop charges against the head of deutsche of birds the company that runs

4:31 pm
the bundestag he's called on the new parliament to engage in vigorous but civil debate. now that corn comes after an election campaign that focused heavily on germany's immigration policies since two thousand and fifteen or well over a million immigrants arrived in germany many fleeing war and terror but others lured by false promises of disparity from people smugglers the prize for feeling full and for such myths can be fatal as people risk their lives to come here now the german government has launched a new campaign aimed at dispelling with misinformation about moving to the country elizabeth shoaf from a social media team has been tracking that story and joins me now this is not about this new campaign. well the german foreign office has launched a website a new website it is called rumors about germany and of course the aim is not to
4:32 pm
continue spreading those rumors but actually provide facts for my gran so there is information about people who want to leave their countries come to germany for people who are already on their way to germany and also for refugees who are in the country and want to go back to their home countries their website is available in english french and arabic everything is kept in a very simple language they have very clear messages i can just show you one category that they have there for example they have seven big lies that these are human traffickers are these the people smugglers tell of the refugees so one of my favorites is number five so they say that every refugee receives the welcome payment of two thousand euros and now the government here on the website the banks that myth saying that germany does not provide and wellcome a payment to people who come to the country and other lies that are being told are that for example germany grants a house to every refugee so the aim of this website is really to show the false
4:33 pm
information that is out there and to tell the truth about what awaits the people who will be coming to germany they also have information for example about how they can apply for asylum when they're here in germany and this is not the fullest efforts at debunking such myths isnt it. that's absolutely right there was a similar campaign it was on a much smaller scale and it was targeting people who are in afghanistan because afghans are one of the largest groups of my grandson here in germany so it had the same name and that campaign it was also rumors about germany and here for example you have a tweet from the german embassy in afghanistan saying come in from afghanistan gives you a right to asylum wrong only people who've been persecuted will be granted asylum so really trying to tell people whether they will be allowed to apply for asylum once they get to germany and this campaign was also conducted offline the so in
4:34 pm
different towns in afghanistan there where messages painted on buses here as you see for example and also there were billboards with these rumors and the german government really trying to tell people the truth about what's right for example they have if they wanted to come to germany as refugees and now right now many people are questioning how effective this campaign will be because they say if somebody is really determined to come to germany then maybe such messages will not be enough to deter them from coming to this country is the choice of social media desk thank you. turning now to mortar the model last week of an investigative journalist in the country has drawn international attention to politics on the tiny mediterranean nation daphne caruana. focused on investigating government corruption and politicians apparent links to the end to organized crime later today the european parliament easy to discuss press freedom
4:35 pm
and the protection of journalists in light of. the area where daphne koller want to go with killed has been cordoned off so forensic experts can comb the scene f.b.i. agents have come from the u.s. to help. a car bomb killed the investigative journalist just one hundred metres from her home. she made a number of enemies with her relentless reporting and received many threats her family's lawyer has angry words for the prime minister of malta and others in high positions. is joseph or scott depresses prime minister he himself referred to there for the as a hate blogger as a person who lied as a person who disseminated fake news he was the person who led a vicious character assassination on difficult when they got it's a for more than twenty years for no to come as if shedding crocodile tears
4:36 pm
it's too late you should have acted much before they conducted her research as part of the journalist group working on leaked documents known as the panama papers her findings suggest that the prime minister's wife under stake in a shell company registered in panama that engaged in large scale money laundering the leaches said her claim was based on papers discovered by a bank employee shot found documents in the safe two paper two documents both of them declarations of trust. by individuals the norm. in these who has a says an egg renting in the name of mrs mission in the sky. references to this company a grant appeared in the panama papers. earlier this year during a session of the european parliament in strasbourg m.p.'s asked how mata could maintain the rule of law amid allegations of corruption. for the prime minister
4:37 pm
dismissed these concerns along with allegations some people in this house have referred to a story a totally outright lie that has been directed against me my wife and my family and i marveled at the idea that some extremely knowledgeable members of this house have taken this thing. and repeated it here just like that four months later daphne cardona was dead. a green party member of the european parliament is calling for action from brussels. the o.p.'s who knew when the european union can carry out infringement proceedings against malta or inquiries from the european commission have gone unanswered perform months that it's high time this process is initiated
4:38 pm
a lot of. back in malta many unanswered questions to what extent are the island's leaders engaged in organized crime how credible are the allegations against the government and why was daphne caught a monica leach a killed. at a makeshift memorial outside the courthouse in the capital one of the people paying his respects is. a conservative politician. he was among those who came under heavy criticism by the journalist. she didn't have to die she needn't have died and all of this could have been avoided if the rule of law in our country did not collapse in the way to has such that even scandals as big as panama papers that took people to justice from countries in countries from germany to brazil. where ignored in our country just
4:39 pm
because they involved the top most politicians in our country well definitely exposed for this and she died for it. the allegations are numerous corruption tax havens a refuge for the mafia and seventy thousand offshore companies and the sale of maltese passports many citizens believe the rule of law is on shaky ground along with press freedom back jacob org an investigative journalist worked with for a few years including the panama papers he's still shaken by her death. this is obviously it's going to be like you said it's going to remain at the back of our minds but we can't let it's intimate a person stop us from doing our jobs. these media we need to. people of faith thank you for it in the stories of snow to the best testament. it's unclear whether her killer ever be found many have their doubts but they hope the european union will
4:40 pm
be jolted into action as a consequence of the murder of daphne i don't want to delete you. french president a man who is hosting his egyptian counterpart in paris abdel fattah el-sisi visit has sort of micro under pressure from some human rights groups they've made calls for france to suspend arms exports to egypt over alleged human rights violations by the country's security forces egypt has cracked down on dissent since the ouster of the country's islamist president mohamed morsi in two thousand and thirteen. our correspondent elise a louis is in paris keeping track of the presidential visit he's a human rights was in egypt was on the agenda was that issue raised at the talks between the two presidents. yes it was but it rather like a footnote really the french president my macaw first talked about the strategic
4:41 pm
cooperation between the two countries that he talked about the fight against terrorism and then he said that obviously the fight against terrorism was only would only be effective if there was a stable human rights situation in the country that will not satisfy and geos that have been asking for the country to make an improvement in the human human rights situation at the absolute condition for cooperation between the two countries obviously and the fight on terror was also up for discussion what kind of cooperation is there between france and egypt on this issue. what france has sold more than six billion euros worth of military equipment to egypt over the past few years they sold several rafal fighter jets and mystra warships and then the two governments have carried out joint military exercises earlier this year and a monarch or he said that france would continue to help egypt in the fight against
4:42 pm
terrorism egypt is facing an insurgency specially in the scene i where the local branch of so-called islamic state is fighting against the government so the my my corps has largely talked about this issue and said you know that that that that the government that sounds really needed egypt in this it's actually seen egypt is seen as the last line of defense against terrorism really by many in europe and he's a listen both thank you. and now for business with the van and the importance of r. and d. spending in the world of business thank you and reader i'll start with an example tesla found it on musk is the king of electric cars but the pay pal found it didn't get there by playing it safe he's willing to bet big on research projects and has made a fortune doing so and he's not alone companies across the board upped their spending on new research projects to the tune of seven hundred two billion dollars last year
4:43 pm
leading the pack companies like amazon google parent company alphabet and. they're hoping their moon shot research basically into unproven new technologies might just be the next game changing product and research projects are becoming an ever more important part of company budgets corporations like intel spend as much as a fifth of their entire budgets on research and development. let's talk about this with that from our business desk laws spending on research and development at a record high but is it a gamble for companies or is it a must where does it gamble definitely they are all gambling then but they have to it's what you have to do because we don't know what the future holds no company knows that so as a company they have to just try out new things whether that's technologies whether that is products and some of these things of course might work and others might not but they have to be out there gambling because if they don't do you know what happens when you're not playing you won't win obviously and even when it comes to
4:44 pm
someone like iran musk and trying to get to mars absolutely a lot of people are still laughing at elon musk and his ideas and many of these ideas that iran must has been working on for years many might not lead to anything but some will and those are going to be the important ideas the technologies that lead into the future and people laughed at the i phone and you might even remember people laughed at the idea that at some point everyone will have a computer in their home these were mind boggling ideas way back when and of course it was worth all the spending and all the effort they put in what about g.w. did back in fifth place is is that a good thing for german companies well not really they use only the pac they were a couple spots higher now i got to say it's really difficult here to compare r. and d. spending between let's say high tech companies and bangan auto maker and a pharmaceutical companies that's a little bit comparing apples and oranges but what you can certainly compare is a company's culture when it comes to r. and d. and it seems a little bit that germany has been losing in that particular way

a lot of the american companies seem to be a lot more out there if you look at specifically volkswagen they think the diesel is still a great technology and of course that's a ludicrous there was a winning strategy for decades but this is not going to be helping them in the future they are now being taken over not only by the car makers but by companies like apple or. that i'm not even in the car business the germans aren't really out there people how can they change that and become winners in r. and d. but i personally think it's two factors that need to work together here you need the companies obviously really to get off the couch they cannot longer rest on their laurels they have to really bring in new ideas and they have to do these investments but you also have the government part they really have to set the infrastructure that even enables r. and d. they have to bring coding to schools new technologies and such things to just get kids ready to work for this company and do the research and development sounds like

you've done your research labs thanks for coming it's always a pleasure the road to internet access in cuba has been slow and expensive two years ago the socialist government hooked up a tiny share of private households in havana to the world wide web mostly academics scientists and journalists the rest resort to wife i pox public areas that offer internet access there of a four hundred of them on the island but many cubans and happy about that. writing messages and sending photos making phone calls or skype in with friends and relatives in all corners of the globe all of this is now possible in cuba is why five parks prices have dropped from two us dollars to one fifty per hour but that still represents five percent of the average monthly income of just thirty dollars but it's not just the high prices that disturb many cubans. i talk on the phone by

internet with people about private things and all around people can listen in that it would be nice if privacy could be protected but as long as it's not like that we have to live with what we have but i mean like everything on cuba a little surreal you can really experience the intimate lives of people someone pleading like when are you finally going to send me an invitation or another i miss you my son the whole of cuban life is being played out in this park the exodus of those far away that have left and those that stayed here the whole thing makes me say that you thought i'm going yeah. two years ago the first private broadband network was laid in havana and promises have been made to hook up the entire island by the end of the year but repeated problems mean such a plan is something of a utopia and one many for now at least can still only dream of.

a mini bus loaded with cans of gasoline into a cinema and two cars outside the offices of the director's noir were set on fire in moscow fears of further violence have prompted several cinemas and russia to cancel scheduled screenings of the film regardless of whether matilda will be a financial success it has prompted a discussion about the limits of art and censorship. and he does seem a very interesting film not a german actor. plays nicholas the second he didn't attend the premier did he no he didn't i mean are they is an extraordinary act who throws everything into a performance he's the type of actor who opens himself up completely risks anything very much has the courage of his own convictions but he's known mainly as a stage actor and he's done some problem menacing and full throttle performances to say the least well etree anything he's known perhaps the international audience has
