retirement hasn't escaped the notice of diamonds competitive b.m.w. this is quite interesting it marked the occasion by going all out with this video a double playing the boss bidding farewell to stop and gliding off into retirement in a wait for it m.w. didn't take long to dime a social media team to respond though they tweeted we guess our boss would rather really rely on real power for his retirement right that's quite funny for a german judge very good. at the stock exchange what's the market reaction to those social videos social media videos but searches for time. well i wouldn't look at the market reaction too much because shares for diana are down 1.6 percent but that on a day where most of the market is down anyways so i would not necessarily put that right on said she here but it is interesting to see that as beloved. old said she

8:22 pm
guy has his work cut out for him and we all have to share all of us. what is the road ahead going to bring you reckon well 1st is going to be busy with this massive restructure it's the biggest one in the company's 130 year history so that's going to combine the car than businesses and the bus and truck business into 2 independents then also the amount of task involving $800.00 subsidiaries in 60 countries 130000 employees could be transferred that's just the plan for this year is that a clever move well it's going to be a move that allows them to be able to cut costs at least that's what they're hoping to get out of it and if that helps them achieve their goal than the physical a clever move cut costs even though the synergies won't be there anymore indeed it but you see they have to be able to do that and they have to be able to look outside for more development partnerships and they have to move away from just traditionally from building traditional cars the whole car industry has to do anyway exactly you know thank you very much for coming in

a lot of the forests in right foot. african tax authorities miss out on a least $50000000000.00 a year in revenues foreign corporations are especially good at exploiting loopholes the laws aren't always enforced and there's corruption. it's a business worth billions whether coal natural gas or rear earths companies from all over the world are extracting mineral resources and africa they often pay little or no tax for the privilege take mozambique for instance its government is in no position to monitor activities and audit the balance sheets of the foreign corporations active in the country because it lacks the necessary structures and resources and that studies show costs mozambique millions in potential revenues corruption and mismanagement and prevent the situation in the end there's nothing left for infrastructure education or health care and governments aren't the only

ones to blame the corporations often under to clear profits or claim excessive overhead exaggerating the costs for exploring deposits more for personnel accommodation others to reduce their tax burden by setting up shop in taxi vans or bribing politicians and the practices aren't only common among large corporations smaller companies such as safari travel providers have also grown adept at avoiding tax payment in africa. as head deals with the lows on a daily basis he works for we need which stands for world economy ecology and develop 1st of all just how different are these tax breaks that are given in africa to places in europe or the us. 1st companies use the same techniques that these companies from the us he was in other regions like europe so they would have profits through tax havens the netherlands for example but on the other hand does one feature in africa that many africans granted lauch corporate
8:25 pm
income tax breaks for a long time in so-called special economic zones for example where they lose even more tax by just granting blunt own tax breaks to these companies so it's 2 things that have happened here and over periods of 5 to 10 years i believe for example many zones that's the case here and these are growing and these are existed in in almost all africa guterres yeah you can see to. advise us tax advisers that have large overviews of every african country you can see they have such a tax rates and it's a growing trend according to fox sample studies by the international monetary fund that showed these trends that we're talking here about a $50000000000.00 tax shortfall that's that's a huge amount and more than the amount of african aid definitely so they really have not enough money just because there's not enough to grow sources and so they're still depend on 8 because they don't have their own resources to finance their public services and so on what are the other reasons why governments don't
8:26 pm
want this money it's easy money is just a race to the bottom each fighting against each other to get these large corporations in the 1st place it's not that easy if there's a corporation to have lots of power and often one corporation is very important for one country of it's a poor country so it's not that easy to negotiate a good tax deal than the other pressure from other industrial countries so that they need to have tax agreements for example that are not in their favor and there's also pressure to do this and so difficult of problems and also tax administration is much weaker so much less persons tax administration persons per perpetration tell me what's this all costing the regular africa they lose out because of course you cannot find in schools you cannot finance infrastructure you have that and then money and get indebted. because of no own resources so it as a huge problem for many countries and one of the solutions and something you're working on yeah we have to rekindle goetia tax treaties because they are unfair at a moment's notice for one thing that we have to do and also push the other countries to do this and they're new to new definitions what is
8:27 pm
a taxable presence economic presence in the country like with the mining companies that we've seen that you really need to better definitions that they are they're active and they're really paid the taxes they are not shift the profits to the industrial countries for the headquarters where they are then also not taxed off of our governments are organizations is the g 20 and other groups are they all doing enough to solve this problem just briefly is a big process called inclusive framework no which was put up at a g. 20 and the 130 countries at the moment in dosia there was a dia negotiating rules and is a big fight between the industrial countries but also the different positions and the g 20 for the emerging countries where they try to get a new global tax rule and also texas but it's still open if they really achieve something so a lot of people looking for solutions but not a quick fix death supply he said thank you very much for coming in. south africa is extraditing mozambique's former finance minister back to his home country of
