a systems overhaul. so why get hurt and you know how to lose it is that we need to thirty percent fewer employees for econ production than for combustion engines which means cutting jobs and it will be difficult to do that just through fluctuation and semi retirement. that means a good market position will be vital. such plans are doubtless unsettling for factory workers at the company's headquarters involve spork thirty percent fewer staff means thousands of jobs are at risk but the corporation is determined to revolutionize production that first the new vehicles will be built three german and two chinese plants many different models can be built on v.w. use new emo billet platform. the application possibilities of the

7:20 pm
an answer b.w. is trying out its very own app based ride sharing service in rwanda called v.w. move if successful the company could roll out the system across the continent so what's behind this joining me in the studio is our correspondent. was forgotten and it's physical when you're away on holidays six weeks is it. tell me a little bit about v.w. and its ambitions in africa just how ambitious it is and if it's actually doing enough to get where it wants to get well obviously with that strategy in rwanda which you just spoke about that is something that clearly recognizes the need for different types of solutions it's not trying to sell more cars in africa of realize that the market isn't quite ready or isn't quite there yet people cannot afford the kinds of cars that can produce as they are way too expensive and out of you know
7:21 pm
most people's budgets but ride sharing could be one way to go and that's an urban mobility solution that could work with some people so that's something it's trying out to wanda and i think based on how that works maybe the solution could be expanded but we haven't you know obviously heard about how that's working so far well when we talk about mobility in africa i did mediately think that they'd be endless opportunities but what the actual growth prospects in africa well in terms of actual growth was speaking of one in two africans living in an urban area by twenty thirty so that means cities are growing the need to move people around those cities is going to increase tremendously if we're talking about legislation we could go to nairobi kenya for instance where regulators are planning to restrict used cars or the sale of used cars and move it down from eight years to five years and if that happens that will shut out a lot of people from that car ownership market that opens up things for us. people
7:22 pm
who are offering right sharing services and it does move to nairobi they might be able to maybe tap into that market if the authorities do go along with their plans to restrict used cars in kenya for instance so there's definitely room for growth there it's fun to thank you very much for coming in three more european countries are suspending flights of boeing seven three seven max eight aircraft in and out of their airspace the latest include the netherlands austria island the u.k. germany and france ethiopia and south africa have also closed their airspace to the passenger jets following sunday's fatal crash of an ethiopian airlines plane national authorities say they're concerned not enough information from that investigation is forthcoming of the three hundred seventy four max jets in operation around the world nearly half of being grounded by their owners. not to come up with
7:23 pm
a lot of reasons not to come to work but if you would to even provided with the quitman to do your job that's the case in zimbabwe's hospitals sector suffering from years of mismanagement not unlike the economy. medical care in zimbabwe has reached its limit a sign of the health of the overall economy doctors are fed up there's no point of going to wake. up the case is to go to. the field fifteen field because you know the situation is so serious. at the start of the year there were bloody protests after a massive gasoline price hike. the government wants to add additional taxes and levies to prop up the state budget zimbabwe's neighbor botswana now wants to help albeit indirectly. for example it wants to support companies from botswana with
7:24 pm
guarantees totally around one hundred million dollars if they decide to invest in neighboring zimbabwe. botswana can afford it the country and its people are making a good living from the diamond trade. privilege fund here e is in the capital harare good to have you with us earlier this year zimbabwe vowed a bold economic turnaround but it looks like you can't do it on its side. certainly it can do it on its own you one is coming from your past where for the past twenty years there's been a serious economic meltdown and credit lines particularly from the international lending institutions like i am if are not forthcoming saw right now is looking at options of getting help from its neighbors like south africa and botswana we have
7:25 pm
seen in the past two weeks where zimbabwe's have to buy a national commission's summit like the one that just ended today with south african president. was in zimbabwe for there by national commission but these two countries have met probably sees but not tangible commitments at the moment as to how much financial assistance they could lend to zimbabwe. one billion puller but this is only going to go to the private six because these need for the revival of the industry for the economy to kick in if you say no real bailout for zimbabwe at the moment we we saw the hopeless situation the health industry is in zimbabwe how bad the situation in other states. this situation is pretty not good condition because the industry is operating
7:26 pm
below forty percent capacity whereas if you look at it in the ninety's coming to the area two thousand. of the industry it was operational never used to be a big importer of duties it used to run fits of goods that were being exported to neighboring countries and even within the region but industry is down and several other sectors if you look at the infrastructure for zimbabwe it needs a boost for the country to come alive again i guess if african nations had more trade with each other that would provide a boost as well thank you very much for being with us privilege thanks for your analysis. not the way we wanted the inventor of the world wide web which turns thirty today admits it's facing growing pains hate speech privacy concerns state sponsored hacking tim berners lee is calling on governments
7:27 pm
companies and citizens to work together and he wants the web to become even more accessible. the ability of just about anyone to contact everyone anywhere in the world is down to this man tim berners lee as a young english physicist berners lee came up with a program language that enabled computers connected to the internet to exchange data. back then he was more concerned about linking academic computers around the world the science community and something else tim berners lee didn't get his language paid and did the world wide web was free of charge from the beginning on that might have had something to do with how the internet swept and changed the world in such a short time. what we're getting to this point in just a few months when for the first time more than half the world will build will be online we're calling it a fifty fifty moment and that's a moment where i think we've got to do two things firstly we've got to say what
7:28 pm
about the next fifty percent and there's a lot of challenge in how we're going to get everybody connected or even the most the majority of the world connected but it's also of course a lot to do to make the web better and whether that's dealing with privacy concerns with content online with governments censoring or cutting access to the web in different parts of the world there's lots to do to make sure that we're getting the web we want not a web that actually hurts humanity because that's the downside enormously powerful tech conglomerates like facebook and google who collect collate and monetize personal data governments that spy on their citizens they make berners lee livid so nowadays he's working to help internet users regain control and ownership of their personal data. so. business.
