i know nothing like that well i guess sometimes i am but i said nothing which at that point the gentleman thinks deep into jamma culture of looking at the stereotype question to anyone thinking he's a country that i don't blame. need to be taking his grandmother day out to eat it's cold out ok. i might show so i mean for me to devon sunday duppy. post every journey begins with the first step and every language with the
first word published in the. coach is in germany to learn german why not play with them simple online on your mobile and free stuff d w z e learning course nikos for german meetings. the sun executives are pondering over whether or not to give in prison chairman karl is gone but. meanwhile there is speculation that goans downfall could be exploited to rearrange powers in the complex and i don't know a lot. also on the show thailand has an ambitious vision as a future high tech manufacturing job but then there is a problem with its workforce. i'm
christopher caldwell welcome to the program the nissan board has gathered in tokyo and apparently members are split over whether or not carlos go on the chairman is accused of severe financial misconduct and has been taken into custody earlier this week but the circumstances of his arrest are giving rise to speculation and raise questions about the future of the complex automotive lines he's been headed for two decades. carlos ghosn has plunged from the plush surroundings of his executive suite to a spartan cell behind the walls of this tokyo jail. rumors that nissan executives were behind his fall from grace spread from france to japan as fast as global media could. do good it was the sort of the who to talk to those who didn't like him denounced him internally to make him.
a journalist caught up with nissan c.e.o. he total psycho was in front of his house they were eager to hear if in fact had been working on a complete reno nissan merger before his arrest. i haven't heard that. karl is going is one of the most successful auto company managers of all time in one thousand nine hundred six he began restructuring failing french carmaker renault. three years later he engineered the alliance with nissan he soon had this company back on the road to success as well. renault holds a forty three percent stake in nissan giving the french a lot of power in the company right through to even appointing the nissan board the japanese company has only a fifteen percent stake in renault leaving it with no effective boat or power in its punch partner. a complete merger would have cemented nissan's position as the
weaker partner even though the company is performing better than renault. the rest has now raised concerns that the renault nissan alliance could collapse something the japanese government wants to avoid. to do again what's important for now is to ensure the alliance between nissan remained stable and. carlo's career appears to be collapsing however he is suspected of underreporting his income by several million euros over a five year period as well as misusing company assets for personal gain could face up to ten years in jail if he's found guilty for more on the story let's bring in larry he's a professor of strategic management management at warwick business school in the u.k. and a commentator on the car industry program question we've seen that this is a very complex alliance with the much smaller rental having
a big say the much larger nissan if you think it's possible that mr golems downfall is politically motivated to shift the division of power in favor of the japanese. well at the moment this is pure speculation but it's possibly what i do think would be surprising if executives in the sun haven't known about these dealings and their arrangements for years you have you thought too long to go the whole big folks walking story even the beginning it was always an attempt to claim intern a few on the roof. executive if so why she and junia's but it became more and more clear that it was widely known with so what's going on so i would expect that people were at least in the know whether this was done in an attempt to protect themselves when it was a consequence of a few whistleblower laws in japan dead might become clearer in the days to carlos' management shake up like this would be a good time to overhaul this entire collaboration. so i don't think that
the duration the will fall apart days too much integration between the sun and and renault into production develop of new products is beneficial to go sorry it's but what could certainly happen always expected to happen is that nissen tries to shift some of the power within the organization and i would be cautious to say that this is going to work. to manage and miss and would like to do for some star thank you very much for weighing in on this discussion. to titan now a country that has grown to one of the biggest auto manufacturers in the world and several key players that have a right to set up shop in the country want to extend their presence but as technology in the automotive sector is rapidly advancing proper training of staff is often hard to maintain. mercedes benz has a long history in thailand the company has been producing cars here since the one
nine hundred sixty s. now they've got their i set firmly on the future and that means electra mobility. mercedes is invest in some one hundred million euros here but only to expand production lines but to add a lithium ion battery plan for its plug in hybrid vehicles. hyla needs to modernize to secure its position as a major automotive hub in the region. now we come to a point where. the cost of labor obviously is cheaper in other countries around talent to be a leading production help in the automotive industry that needs now a change into new technology into innovative products and we all know that is clearly the. direction so electric cars high voltage knowledge components and technology that is what needs to be build up. it's part of an
ambitious plan supported by thailand's military government official promo videos like this one advertise huge infrastructure programs smart cities and breakthrough technologies that are supposed to catapult the country into the twenty first century and increase its competitiveness a large number of incentives aim to also attract high tech investment in the automotive sector. we position ourselves as the hub for. of course what global production particularly for green technology production so that's why we are now looking at the next generation ultimate if industry certainly with the new technologies media to. force or even to make sure that the new intern stood up into a. workforce would have the required skills. that could be one of the bottlenecks of the plan at b.m.w. tile and they've set up their own training facility to ensure their apprentices
meet the company's high quality standards. and they work closely with the educational institutions across the country to bring them up to speed it's not always an easy task. so when your cycle that means starting this program we contact seven technical college and only one get this that if a kid and all. me too that's the walking witnessed the rest for that hour up there why the cost we have to at meet that day and not good enough for this they will. do that will have to change if thailand's high flying ambitions are to get off the ground the government is aware of this and german automotive companies are helping to transfer knowledge into the country but they also know that they still have a long road ahead. well two years into his america first presidency of donald trump's trade war has operated industries around the globe european car manufacturers have to adjust to terrorists as do chinese companies and
various sectors farmers fall victim to aggressive new trade policies as well as terrorist apply to soybeans meat and spanish. spanish farmers have picked from these ancient trees for generations but these days nothing is like it used to be it's the first harvest since the united states imposed import tariffs on packed all of us. just about half of spain's olives used to go to the u.s. now exports have fallen to twenty two percent the reason for president trumps tariffs and unfair market advantage as spanish farmers receive e.u. subsidies. we're accused of unfair competition that is selling at below market prices because of the eight spanish farmers received from the european union we are going to demonstrate in court that the aid is legal that it's not unfair and that the competitiveness of spain is due to the high efficiency of our industry.
allows pay for. in fact the case for punitive damages is shaky all of growers in many countries receive subsidies and they're not subject to tariffs the spanish believe it's all about unwanted competition. the terrorists have been directed only against spain because we are the biggest competitor for black to the u.s. we have thirty three percent of the market and we're increasingly gaining market share other countries such as it leave portugal greece some rocko they only represent eight percent as a whole so the tears have been directed against the biggest rival which is spain. such to. errors would be illegal under the old rules but that doesn't help spanish farmers right now they are watching a seventy million dollar trade market and is already shedding jobs meanwhile.
point to another victim the american consumer. americans will keep on buying these all us possibly from other countries and possibly they'll be more expensive this will harm the consumer and it will harm us here. and the prices are up in the us whether the green delicacies end up on sandwiches pizza or an upscale bar. and that wraps up our program for me and the entire team here in berlin.
