12:41 pm
asked me to people 1000000000, which is about 67 and g d p o, which almost 30 is external. the slow progress is, is most likely contributed towards moody and decisions have done great the country in may. i place a credit rating on review, and we saw a rather exasperated statement from the i m. s on july 6th. when it said it strongly encourages this permission of the acrylic committee. what exactly is holding up the negotiations? it's, it's possible that it has to do with pressure, but it also seems that there is, and some exasperation from, from, from some of the criticism, frustration around transparency issues. it seems that he is reluctant to open his books. and this could have a number of reasons why the cost of the warranty greg in one of those it's loans
12:42 pm
with, with china being being another. but it certainly certainly complicating across that is already problematic. well, it's a problematic situation as a complicated situation, but given the deck, the g t p ratio that you've just caught aids, would you say that you feel peers finances or the critical position? right? no yes, i would. i would suggest that they probably finance is not, is not healthy one. currently we still have as much recently of the war in tikrit crossing as much as 2 and a half $1000000000.00. now that puts an enormous hole in any country, public finances, then as to these, the soft is socratic risks that will die and will threaten, don't support. that's another major consideration. i guess one of the largest
12:43 pm
recipients all of aid in africa and the u. s. alone contributed some 1000000000 dollars, 1000000000 dollars to that in 2020. this is very much on the script and it is one of the significant leverage is the us has. so the have would have been very annoyed by my comments made last year by president job and specifically by us secretary of state. and the blinker comments, particularly to congress way, he described the situation p, grandma to ethnic cleansing, would have rankled them a great deal. but it is the thought essential individuals and the restrictions placed on on economic and security assistance that will, that will most quite low spring the focus and i want to prime minister be now he has won a strong mandates in last month's elections. do you think he will be able to achieve his goal of listing the country up to middle income faces,
12:44 pm
or do you think the pandemic because just erased that prospects entirely? yes. yes. it's of course, it's a major threat to, to, to miss obvious ministration, which is one in not tobar is one, an enormous, overwhelming mandate. the awesome suggestions and it is that he won most too many books and some of us got positions failed to win any boats when opposition and candidate 11 of the one of the seats, they want everything else that that's wrong. mandate comes with enormous challenges depend, demik and the situation and see greg is perhaps the biggest read we are seeing minutes of soldiers mobilization taking place and i'm our regional security forces to go meet tpr live advances in the west of the region mainly has captured most of
12:45 pm
the north and south too. great. so this the complex situation that he has deal with . i could have mentioned this earlier as well, is that if you guess, privatization drive, it's much private decision also faces significant risks. now, the spectrum in, in, in april of this year, and he only attracted to bidders. and at least part of that can be explained by the fact that if you have your right now culture very good reputation, risk and your us, you base companies will be reluctant to just for, for massive investments like that, considering country stuff at the moment. well i'm, i'm glad you touched on the privatization, because that is one of avi signature policies. another one, a real policy drives the grounds, renee's own stand projects, and that of course, is causing a lot of tension amongst if you will, p as
12:46 pm
a neighbors will do you make of this. how does this speed in for the economic picture, and is this another potential flash point for conflicts? so before, before i move on to the good, i should point out that this is another leverage that the u. s. is seemingly interested in using against you again, that is the successful bid that was awarded in may of this year. quite a large part of the consortium was made up of the us international finance corporation and both the $500000000.00 loan which not used to be in the balance. a lot of us us pressure being placed on on. this is certainly not good news for, for the grant. if you can renew them agreement and tripartite agreement was done in egypt and the u. s. a. schools requests partner to egypt. and there's a section that they are favor in egypt in these negotiations, and they use the open us relationship intent on so many graphs. and one of the
12:47 pm
reasons why it negotiations under the auspices of the african union, the social conflict cannot be dismissed. but it needs to be said that the conflict between yokes of egypt is very difficult to imagine. just because of the she had to divide the massive distance between those 2 countries. so in essence, sudan would have to involve the salt and such confident they would have to provide egypt support and allow them to use that territory. we're getting well ahead of us all by talking about that. but that is, that is a consideration and done on some level at least recognizes the advantage of having a massive hydro electric project uninstall, stick that it could potentially benefit from in the future for electricity. so they would be reluctant to have to ration escalate. i get to follow ok. fascinating
12:48 pm
insights for you low. now really appreciate you talk. it says here own can see the cost that's low now from n k c economics. thank you much. the norway has done a lot to curtail its emissions with consumers buying more electric than conventional cars. but western europe, the biggest exports of oil is also one of the world's biggest facts porters of emissions and not content with plans for c bed mining. it's also planning to drill for oil in the arctic, but not if environmentalists have their way. bolden by victories and courts against royal dutch shell and the german government activists are pushing a european court to rule. but norway drilling is a breach of human rights. in 3 previous cases, norwegian courts affirm the government has nots breached those rights. well,
12:49 pm
let's talk now it's one of the activists is bringing that case. joining us via skype from melbourne, australia is some coarser gilbert's campaign or for economic justice friends of the earth international. could you just start by explaining to us why you're bringing this case? what are the grains for pursuing this legal action? so what we know from these cases and a lot of the climate case in general, what we need to prove is that climate change causes a breach of human rights and that it's exploiting new fossil fuels also leads to directly to climate change. we think that there's much new evidence coming out in terms of climate change. we see that the impacts of climate change getting worse and worse. i'm from australia. and just last year we saw massive bush fires destroying in area the size of france. we're currently seeing heat waves in north america and also floods throughout the world. so the evidence is mounting about the
12:50 pm
impact of climate change. we've also seen a number of very significant victories by young people in regards to claim litigation. so the german cases is very telling in which a group of young people in germany were able to, to win on these human rights climate grounds. also, we were able to win friends of the earth against the dutch dutch royal show in a, in a climate case recently. so there's a real growing movement for these sort of cases. and we see a real opportunity to, in this case, let's talk about emissions now. in a st. leo for you are norway, i'm cancel. those are 3 countries that are quite small in terms of pump you lation, but all have vast reserves of oil and gas for exports. they're all exposing their emissions astray earlier. i've been quite slow when it comes to
12:51 pm
acknowledging and implementing changes at home. but norway, it seems, have made great strides. but despite all this, the still pushing a heads with drilling in the arctic. why do you think this is? well, there's a lot of money to be made in oil, and what we need to do is have people stand up for people in planet. and we really need to have a holistic approach to climate change which encompasses all elements. so it's, it's, you know, it's not good enough for a government or a company to be doing one thing on one side. and then another thing on the other side, we see this with this trailer as well with extreme amounts of exports. and that's why this case is so important, we need people to be out there cooling out the green washing astray. exports a lot more fossil fuels than, than it produces itself. and so we need cases like this to hold governments and companies accountable for what they're actually doing. and we know if way to keep
12:52 pm
we've seen a safe climate, we need to keep the oiling the in the soil. and that's why this case is so important. know some back in 2018, the norwegian governments after a significant amount of pressure announced that the arctic fulton islands will be protected for oil drilling for 4 years now. that time is nearly. oh, do you think they'll be more pushback? i think we, we always push back and we always, they are willing and ready to fight. we've done a lot of solid reactions with friends of, you know, and this is a really important case. people love the arctic and they're going to fight for this is a massive global campaign, and we're hopeful to winning the courts and they'll be significant global pressure on the norwegian government around this issue at the upcoming climate negotiations and into the future. okay, great to get your thoughts. thank you so much for joining us on kind of thing that cost some of course,
12:53 pm
the gilbert's campaigner at friends of the earth international. thank you. thanks for having me. the leisure and hospitality sexes have been hit hardest by the pandemic. according to the world travel and tourism council, the industry suffered a loss of almost $4.00 trillion dollars in 2020, 20. 19 the travel and tourism sector contribute to 10 percent to global g. p a share which decreased to 5.5 percent in 20. 22, of course, to be ongoing restrictions to mobility or in 202062 1000000 jobs were lost, representing a drop of 18.5 percent, leaving just 272000000 people employed across the sector globally. that's compared to 334000000 in 2019. where you can see what governments are desperate to get people back into work and get the economy motoring. one island
