london. this is one of the biggest in and teach warehouses in europe where high and prepared for shipping around the world. the company services top dealers private collections and museums so what's the most expensive item that's passed through. looking at in excess of one hundred million pounds so these are no more objects by any means or some might be small but very badly. the international world depends on frictionless shipping with little bureaucracy and few tariffs but as bricks it looms the industry is weighing up the challenges i feel there is just this lack of clarity where we don't know what's going to happen if we if we get a deal next week then everything stays the same for twenty months maybe three years and then during that period they'll negotiate further but it does lead to further uncertainty and that makes long term planning quite difficult.

9:17 pm
however were muslims the victims come from world in poor areas like this not always far from me city lynching such as these were known to take place in the us but they were rare now thirty five cases have been reported since twenty fifty some activists saying the real number is much higher. it's a temper twenty thousand in india supreme court ordered central state governments to take what it called preventative in punitive measures to stop such attacks after most states failed to comply with its previous directive. this social rights worker spent a year and a half documenting cases of so-called calvin trillin theism while there have been convictions including that of eleven men in march last year she says the problem persists the numbers on the ground unlikely to be even higher and what we are what we need to look at is not just people who have died from the lynchings but the spate of attacks on people. various cal vigilantes operate

9:21 pm
in seven phases between april and may well those are the headlines on al-jazeera counting the cost is coming up next. hello i'm adrian finnegan this is counting the cost on al-jazeera your weekly look at the world of business and economics this week recharge your batteries under pressure from trade tariffs you see zero two rules that even briggs's carmakers around the world are electrifying. how power outages in south africa putting livelihoods at risk. plus why connecting young people to jobs and training is so important for middle east economies. back in one thousand eight
9:22 pm
hundred eight the electric car was all the rage but the discovery of large petroleum reserves worldwide and the combustion engine quickly killed it off electrification was very much the theme at this year's geneva motor show but consumers are yet to be convinced of the eighty million cars expected to be sold this year just two billion of them will be electric but that's not stopping the big coal makers from making the switch on technology editor mariana honda as more most of us drive around and gas guzzling powered by fossil fuels they pump out cabin dockside but take a step back in time and it could all have ben so different. back in the icy ninety's the streets of london were humming with the sound of the world's first electric txi the humming bird was quiet and clean but out of reach for most people and then along came him re ford not only did he invent
9:23 pm
a car that ran on an oil powered combustion engine he also worked out how to mess produce them on an assembly line suddenly cars were affordable and the illiterate cow that's expensive battery and limited range the sapir and more than a hundred years later our modern cones a still burning fossil fuels and contributing a quarter of global c o two new emissions rules trade tariffs and innovations a part of what's now driving comic is to make the switch to electric asia is leading the way more electric cars was sold in china last year than the rest of the world combined but what's not clear is the real cost of going a little trick the automotive industry in its current form employs millions of people around the world and then there's the question of who is going to buy them many consumers remain unconvinced that the electric car will be as claimed easy to use and affordable as they have been told but they are not well economics that it's
9:24 pm
a bit early caught up with linda jackson who's the c.e.o. of citron earlier this week of the geneva motor show he began by asking her if electric cars switched take fewer people to assemble console in the what will it mean for jobs. although that's a very very good question so i don't know whether it's the question of whether it takes less. less people to make the cars it's about how many manufacturers will be able to afford to make the cars and how many of our customers will be able to buy our cars of course because electric cars do mean that serp attention to that will be an increase in price so this is very many factors playing in the fact in terms of what the future is for the automotive industry and i think one of the other things that we never talk about of course is not just about the oil. actually cars but of course all of the infrastructure that we need to be able to run and actually move about in electric cars so that's another factor that will impact our society so we are moving towards electric cars i think that's the general opinion of most
9:25 pm
automakers but in the wake of the diesel emissions scandal is there a reluctance for consumers to step forward and buy electric cars. no i don't think there's a reluctance it's a fact because all manufacturers are now in the race to make sure that we get and introduce our electric cars i for example it citron make sure that i have a block plug in hybrid vehicle next year and every vehicle for next year will have an electric version so all of the manufacturers are making sure that the product is available the next question is customers are reluctant to buy it but what they're obviously very keen on understanding is making sure that they're able to use their cars they're able to charge their cars they're able to move around and be charging them whilst they're on the move and that's something that hasn't really been considered generally i think so that's one concern apart from that i mean everything will be available for customers but of course we have to realise as well that the cost of the batteries etc will mean that there is a an increment for being for having an electric car and i'm not sure that all
9:26 pm
customers currently realise that there will be an increment so does china have an advantage when it comes to letter cause and batteries. what china of course has in terms of availability of batteries of course china is the lead so i mean it's clearly every manufacturer is trying to find ways to be able to support the supply of batteries in the future because that's absolutely fundamental nephew but he's looking at there are other ways but clearly china is for in a very strong position and clearly in terms of their own market is moving quickly towards electric in and obviously wanting to encourage electric obviously on the back of the fact that they are the major battery supplier so clearly it's a major concern and question for all manufacturers to be able to find solutions to make ensure that we have the continued supply of batteries in the future and you plan to move into india what's behind me well what's behind that move festival in here is a very big market and it's we know it's a growing market so you know currently today it's about three million passenger
9:27 pm
cars and it will double in by twenty twenty five so we know it's a big market it's a markets which we are not present in and you know sichuan wants to become more international. we have a very successful results in europe but now we want to grow we want to take the recipe that we used in europe to be able to conquer and go into new frontiers india is a very important market for it because of the size and also because we think that the citron brand with our values which is about being inspired by our customers close to my customers a mainstream brand unique styling and all of the services that we might offer we believe that we'll be able to offer something different to our potential indian customers so we're going in there we know it's a very complex market but we're going in there making sure that we understand what our indian customers would like and we hope to be offering our first because before the end of twenty twenty one now you are a breach living in france working for a french company can you explain what breaks it is. can anybody explain what
9:28 pm
breaks it is you know all i can explain to you is is you know the impact on our business is you know the u.k. i might be british and i might be getting a french company but the u.k. is my fifth most important market in terms of volume so clearly it's a very important market for me can i explain what happened no because at the moment we don't know what's going to happen and i think that's the most important parties we don't know what's going to happen so we're all looking for clarity we all have our plans including p.s.a. we have plans for plan a plan b. heartbreaks itself. what's different maybe but until we know exactly what is going to happen we are in this very difficult stage of instability. porch vehicles into the u.k. so clearly i'm interested in what the terrorists might be if there are any it's a single market is an easy market for a supplier i mean so many questions are needing so many ounces when the jackson the c.e.o. of citron now in many parts of the world
9:29 pm
a reliable electricity supply is still very much a problem in south africa for example rolling blackouts are impacting many businesses ability to operate eskom is one of the biggest power utilities in the world but it's technically insolvent and the crisis there is putting livelihoods at risk as malcolm webb reports from johannesburg. it's a problem for almost all businesses from mines to shops to trees like this one when did you know you can see it in your production. the full. need to see. if we were. not doing the way so you end up the people will just tell me when the power cuts the machine stop the lights go out and then the factory depends on this generates it be able to run it become a common sight in south african factories and businesses but it's not powerful enough to run all of the machines and it guzzles fuel that slows down production
9:30 pm
and pushes up costs power stations have been struggling to keep up with demand economists and opposition politicians say yes' of corruption and mismanagement at the state endemic tricity company called eskom are to blame he was at the center of numerous corruption scandals throughout the nine year rule of former president jacob zuma investigators say he was corruption that caused stagnation of the whole economy it's come in many ways a microcosm of that there is a lot of you know policy uncertainty in this country and it's policy uncertainty which is generated by in effect creating a policy environment that suits the looting of the economy rather than investment in the economy and its foreign investment one hundred billion dollars of it the president will run oppose a promised since he took over just a very year ago along with tackling corruption in creating jobs we recognize
9:31 pm
as do or south africans that our greatest efforts to end poverty unemployment and inequality well i too have a little unless we tackle state kept and corruption in all its manifestations and in the border areas of public life. general elections it due in two months time oppose their needs to convince people his a.n.c. government is succeeding its perceived ability to revive the economy tackle corruption and blackouts will be crucial. still to come on counting the cost briggs it twenty four hours later what happens if there's no deal we have a story from the spanish portuguese border. but first five million young people will be entering the job market every year for the next five years here in the middle east counting the cost has been following one
9:32 pm
organization and its efforts to connect young men and women with jobs al-jazeera karim reports in arabic the words like means your connection it's also the name of a cutter reorganization that aims to connect young people with employment opportunities in places such as yemen somalia and palestine so far so lot of has helped one million young people across the middle east in north africa find meaningful work it's chairperson her highness she. was in geneva this week to mark the tenth anniversary of salata x. founding and to announce an ambitious new target in addition to the one million young people we have already connected with drops we now have committed with in place to connect another two million young men and women by twenty twenty two that's three million meaningful jobs and businesses thanks to silicon supporters
9:33 pm

9:34 pm
three years the region is already struggling to create enough jobs for its youth and the international monetary fund estimates twenty seven million young people will soon be looking for work while initiatives such a slow or important it's clear that much more needs to be done and soon. while i was in geneva earlier this week too and i got the chance to sit down with the founder and chair. your highness thank you so much for being with us on counts in the cost you'll known all over the world for your advocacy for quality education and yet here you are in geneva talking about employment. is this a shift in emphasis for you how does this and the salute tech play into education and what are the challenges if particularly for the middle east north africa region as you know i am i'm i'm really i'm
9:35 pm
a great believer in education i believe in power of the cation transforming lives and societies indication is the basic moving rock cafe for human development that is the basis for sound people can learn their skills their knowledge. of citizenry and also they will construct their first word of you but indication i know it's not enough for you to fall for that with decent work and appointments we failed to provide our young people with the right environment economic social and cultural environment for their respect and their hope we have your very young population one third of all relations between fifteen years old and twenty nine years old this is a very productive age this is the generation that can drive the engine of our economic growth and lead. our social changes because of the changes so i believe that it is better if to invest in them and to give them the
9:36 pm
opportunity that by which they can be active in their societies and practice the citizenry or the art to the degree that we told them during their schooling and and so that's where that's where silla tech comes in so i think is is that he is working to for certain gaps a problem is that some of these young people they like skills that three can allow them to fit in this an ever changing market so thirdly it is training this young people to be employed so we had them for that employer ability also which. to be also entrepreneurs we provide them with their own get and we try to instill in them their self-confidence to see themselves as that the citizens and we have also certain governments to change certain mindset certain policies to create this ecosystem by which this child people can excel back this is this good citizenry your highness we talk

9:38 pm
really to to make sure that what you are offering is appropriate and they quit to the culture and the that i mix of the society that you operate in of course the regional and international partners they help us to do throws fairly certain expertise and knowledge to these local. people that we are helping and supporting your highness it's been an honor to have you on council because many thanks indeed for being with us thank you now a chinese company is challenging the us government in coal. force away says that a u.s. law banning the government and its contractors from using the company's products is unjust washington says that while weight poses a security threat al jazeera brown reports now from change in where huawei has its headquarters from the air while way success is clear just part of its sprawling complex in the special economic zone of change him. while weighs name literally means the achievements of china but the trumpet ministration says those

9:53 pm
helping passengers families we have initiated the airport's. emergency response is to basically take care of the relatives and friends who may be affected in the who. want to receive the passages upon arrival. the freight was expected to arrive you know be at about ten thirty five this morning. at this stage what you've done. used to establish. two centers. as the plane's pilot had reported difficulties and asked. kathryn soar she's joining us live from nairobi so what more are you hearing catherine from ethiopia this latest line that the pilot had reported difficulties.

9:56 pm
still waiting for any information they can get about. it is a tragedy that will of course be felt around the world because as you mentioned and as we're hearing from the ethiopian government twenty seven national nationalities on board we've heard from kenyan authorities catherine that the most important thing for them to right now is to ensure that the families and friends of passengers waiting for them that they will have the highest levels of privacy as they wait for more information. yes. minister in charge of transport has been talking and in all the press briefings he has. that fact that this relatives need. at this hotel where they are just receiving counseling and also just getting more information from officials here. has been cordoned off by police journalists are not able to access
9:57 pm
them just because the minister has been saying that they need this privacy at this time of grief he said this is a very sensitive and emotional time. kenya. sending the scene a senior delegation to. to be able to stand back to. information as well so he said that people who have lost loved ones should be accorded as you mentioned that privacy and just to mention a little bit elizabeth about this has a safety record that is. i mean it is a stable airline one of the fast growing in the region the top three hundred ten aircraft twenty of them. seven three seven five of them are on the max eight series and this particular aircraft at the beginning of this month developed some mechanical problems as well a pilot realized that indeed was delayed for about two hours and then issued
9:58 pm
a statement saying that this is for the safety of the passengers so there was that problem as well it's going to be interesting going forward and with the investigations now beginning to see what exactly could have happened catherine thank you very much for that for now that's catherine sawyer with the latest live in nairobi now the jet that crashed is the latest version of the world's best selling airliner a brand new boeing seven three seven max during the fastest growing airline fleet in africa just four months ago it is the second seventy seven max to crash in the last five months a lion air jet came down off the coast of indonesia and toba killing one hundred eighty nine people on board some of their relatives a sewing boeing and pilots have accused the american manufacturer of failing to warn them how to operate a newly automated stall prevention system well let's get more on this now we're joined by khalid bailey is an aviation analyst and pilot and
9:59 pm
a former federal aviation administration safety team representative and he's joining us live from new jersey very good to have you with us on al-jazeera so issues have been raised about a feature on the seven three seven max which the families of line air victims say pilots weren't adequately trained on this is one of the trained on this is one of the things that this boeing for from what you know what ethiopia airlines pilots adequately trained on this new feature on this new plane in fact. usually when federal authorities from any country put in a directive the airlines will react and do the appropriate training there is no reason to believe that the airline did not comply with any kind of directive or recommendation from either the government or the airplane manufacturer in this case which is boeing but i think the key here is you know the issue that there is
10:00 pm
obviously potential problems with the air speed and the angle of attack indicators on the aircraft which you know make may cause that the pilot to need to react properly to a malfunctioning instrument or instruments so the i think the underlying issue is here is there should be there will be more scrutiny on the air speed and that angle of attack indicator which basically for your viewers who don't know the angle attack indicator basically is is giving you an indication of the climb angle as it's climbing or descending from the airport or whether you know whether it's in normal flight mr beatty a couple of questions on what you're talking about one what boeing had given the directive for ethiopian airlines to train their pilots on this new feature that is new to the seven three seven max that again that the victims the families of the nine may have some say that their pilots went trained on yes.
