8:35 am
inequality gap between rich and poor. he's taking aim at his predecessors, economic plan that has re shaped the japanese economy over the last decades. the country's poverty rates as the 2nd highest among g 7 nations. its household income fell by 3.5 percent from 2014 to 2019. but the top 10 percent, so the wealthiest saw an increase and the average wage has hardly grown in the past 10 years with an increase of just 1.2 percent from 2012 through to last year. the average annual salaries student around $38500.00. that's almost 45 percent less than the average annual wage in the u. s. were in a quality is more pronounced. according to cassie, though, he plans to create what he calls
8:36 am
a virtuous economy. that effectively means raising income for a broader range of people to trigger consumption. the prime minister has announced the record stimulus package of more than $490000000000.00 to help the country recover from the pandemic is the largest to thee turns expected to increase outputs, although it means increasing its debt burden. well, the package includes financial aid for businesses affected by the corona, virus health crisis, and the slump in demands around $880.00, cash handouts to households with children, and those aged 18 or below. it also involves money for strengthening semiconductor supply chains, programs to encourage domestic tourism and investments in a nation wide university funds. cuz she also plans to increase wages for some
8:37 am
workers, including public health and medical staff. and he plans to give tax incentives for companies that ways pay. but despite cash does criticism all of our been nomics years actually sticking to the policies mean 3 pillars known as the 3 arrows. they includes aggressive monetary easing, flexible fiscal policy, and a growth strategy. he will, however, move away from his predecessors, free market policies, and the prime minister has signaled a reform of corporate governance in favor of the small business sector. so will japan's prime minister succeeds in his mission? well, sir, jiro took a sheeta is a professor at the school of management and information of innovation and former managing director of missouri hall into national. he joins me by skype from, she's all cut in japan and it's great to have you. withers own counseling the
8:38 am
course, at least on thursday, asking about the prime minister's prime fool yoshida says he will bring a new form of capitalism. what does this mean? and is it really any different from abby nomics? really good question in the sense that yes ma'am. he needs to bring up something new, especially considering the fact that he was not as popular as these are tribal mr. cohen o, amongst a japanese public. but he was elected because he was popular amongst the japanese though the p m. p. 's. so obviously he has to come up with, well, some kind of a new plan that would basically attract people's eyes and basically to rectify the disparity that was caused by the cove at 19. and a japanese are quite sensitive to this issue. although japan's no, i'll say disparity of wealth is rather low in amongst be always he, nations, people do not want to have such society will divide. so obviously this is an area
8:39 am
where he could tackle or basically claim to tackle are considering the new form of you know, capitalism. so would you say that this plan that he's presenting is a plan to regain trust among the political parties? or does it really represent radical reform in economic terms that the latter, unfortunately the answer is no. the reason why most of the japanese l d p a members are, i would say the m p. 's had chosen music. she has been, as he was sustained, a service call. mr. cornell is a much more radical. i say, a person who brings a lot of constructive destruction to the system. the issues claim to do that. oh, mystery kasheila is much more of i say, adjuster to answer question, will he bring in something new? will he bring in something that would basically and change all to the course of the
8:40 am
japanese methodology? i don't think so. i think he is much more of a person that is stuck to the status quo. he's stuck to the status go and he is something of a, a fiscal conservative issue, the sense but the, do you think that this does represent something of a change in terms of a bicycle at fiscal stimulus package? because that is something that's quite different. does it not? yes, i mean he obviously will come up with these physical packages. in fact, everybody was seeing that even the opposition. but the biggest question which none of them answered was considering or death situation, which is the heaviest deborah owens, all easy. ready nations in considering our demographics, which basically means that we will have a very large number of senior citizens and very low growth rate. or can we afford to continue with this kind of policy of just talking to
8:41 am
a big presence and not talking about where the money is coming from. this is one of the big arguments that, that really been talked about enough in japan. and this is where mystic sheet or any other politicians do not want to be touched. unfortunately because of the coven, 19 people are used to the spending spree type of you know, policies. but i think, you know, what japan has to realize is a world do realize that one of the biggest weak point in japan is the step problem . and this is where i think politicians have to start talking about, you know, putting some discipline into the system. is that it just about control pulling the data and putting discipline into the system. or is it time to tackle other difficult subjects? if for example, immigration, immigration is definitely, well them sd, geez, and other we've got loads of things which and make the transformational changes. and i think japan has to move to step on. fortunately, the great thing about,
8:42 am
you know, mr. kachimba and his follower is that, you know, the transition of a se management will be smooth because he's very, he said a very, very long experience with the bureaucrats and within the party, it's got very good ties, et cetera. but the flip side of that is if and when you want to make radical changes, you'll be faced with severe opposition from exact the people who have been sporting you. kenny have the guts and goals so, you know, can you afford to basically sacrifice, you know, his strength to make that transfer? so changes. i think that would be a very big question because if he loses his strongest point, then it will be very difficult for him. to administer further on and less talk about the changes that he is making. and of course these say these payments that are going out to families name of course, is the highest consumption and to kick start the economy that way. but will it work
8:43 am
in particular, given the, the world is facing such a keats a supply shortage. i think the answer is simply no, i mean we've done this before. the character japanese consumption is that if you have to have it, you have to have a very good, i'll say environment of the corporate side. because of partly because a lifelong employment system is, which is still there in almost larger companies and also the behavior, the japanese which is extremely conservative, which tend to basically, um, stick to a very conservative nature in their spending patterns. so obviously if they know that the macro environment, particular company side is good, then diesels are renting. but if they're just given cash, what happened before is that they, it goes into savings. so if you look at the, the, the multiplier to the economy, i'm pretty sure that you're not going to get a very big deal of buy, just, you know,
8:44 am
throwing cash at them. the important thing is to rejuvenate the prolonged, i would say on our say conditions, oh, the economy, which basically gives a much more a safeguard feeling for the consumers. but that said, of course, you know, for the people who has been, you know, suffering very badly the non full time employees, women are in particular who are in the service sector. of course, the cash ah, they're in a desperate situation. so yes, it will be an emergency measures, but will they really be ignition of consumer spending to kick off? the answer is definitely no. well, it would be fascinating to see how it all plays out. but for now, it said 0 tech is she to joining us from shizzle co in japan. thank you so much for your analysis. we really appreciate it. thank you. ah,
8:45 am
now getting 164 member states to pool in the same direction has made a toll order for the world trade organization. since its inception, 26 years ago, the w t o has struggled to get consensus for some of the most pressing issues of our time. now as the global economy, whether it's a 2nd year of the pandemic, it's new direct to general hopes to make headway where others have failed. i'm delighted to say and go say or conjure willard, joins me now from geneva. she made history as the 1st woman and the 1st african to leads the world trade organization. madam director general, thank you so much for joining us here on counseling the coast. thank you. hello for have in me and let starts with the pandemic. one of the key root sites are of the global pandemic has been hailed as the vaccines and vaccine programs. many
8:46 am
countries have vaccines. many others simply don't have access to them. one proposed solution is waving vaccine patents. where do you stand on this? do you think this will help the entire world get out of this pandemic? well, thank you so much on her. i think this issue of access to vaccines is very, very important. and one of the most trouble in issues or grad time, the fact that you have been to reach 366 percent or more of the population vaccinated and less take africa. you have about 7 percent. that kind of inequity of assets is what we really want to work hard to correct. and to do that, of course, you need several things to be late. you need to have a manufacturing capacity diversified to many countries, right now. 80 percent of export from 10 countries in the world and so concentrated
8:47 am
. so we need to put more capacity in developing countries and emerging markets. we never need the cost of transfer of technology that you talked about, which is the issue of intellectual property that many members of the w q ask employee, we've over 100 developing countries asking for that. on the other side, they are members who feel that this is not the answer to the pandemic. what we need to do is bring them to the middle. this is a negotiating form, and i think that pragmatic solutions that we can come to that will give developing countries more upset to this technology again to ip, whilst at the same time taking care of the worries of the develop that we should not dis, incentivize the innovation, so i think that technology trying to size it is a big part of, of the issue manufacturing capacities. i know that,
8:48 am
but i'm keeping making sure that supply chains work because that, you know, manufacturing vaccine requests very complex supply chain. there are many parts involved and still nekisha, export prohibition and restrictions are lower. and we paid to that. so now, you know very well the challenge of getting vaccines out to the developing world. he used to serve on the board of coffee. do you think there is it? is there anything more in that you want to see happening? because now you're in the big chair, the world trade organization. what does that you feel you're able to do? you know that you were calling for, but when you are at guffy, i think what is innovative in the short term we, i think we need to work with the manufacturers if we help them to monitor. yes, supply chain is a make sure that goods low really i think it would be very good to, to see them allow swapping of contracts between countries in the short term that
8:49 am
is rich countries that at the top of the q because they have more money and can and can, you know, big prost applies of these to swap contracts with warranties at the back of the u. this is innovative. this is good, digital stuff. everybody and everybody's interest to get everyone fascinated worldwide. so that's something that we are working on more transparency in contracting, more distribution, more equity. that's something that we dream of the drum. so when i was in, got the on working on that then actually today the news that switzerland has agreed to swap it's got attract. so that co, that can get to the front of the line and get back to these and then to for up on trees. like switzerland goes to the back of the queue. i think these are some of the kinds of solutions that we're working with, manufacture as done. and then in the longer term,
8:50 am
i think another 2 is to go to the back of the world that don't have the capacity to manufacture. i mean, it's a nominal that in africa we was 99 percent of our sins and 90 percent of our medical products. so why don't we get to investment in those parts of the world and make sure that they come up or down populations? let's talk about your plans for the w t. you, you have of course made history being the 1st woman, the 1st african heads up this organization. you've talked about finding practical solutions and encouraging consensus. what are you hoping to do in terms of reforming this organization? because there have been criticisms that it's not been able to get as much done as people would like. well, thank you highlighted, this is actually a very important issue that will be center stage apprentice ministerial that we're going to start in if in
8:51 am
a few days. i think let me 1st correct the impression that you know there is nothing you have in the w t o. yes, the organization has quite a few problems with his multilateral instrument in region agreements. and there are some agreements that have been pending for 20 years. but there are also some agreements that have been negotiated so much to be ongoing on very recent issues that are pertinent to conflict. am i talking about digital to it as taken? now, during this pandemic, i'm right now that $86.00 pantries, that the w 2 membership rules that underpin e comment that they are members to negotiate in rules on how to help women a trade better in blue and fit into global value. and so they can improve their income them with micro medium small enterprises. so we do have some exciting things
8:52 am
going on in the area of climate change. we also have members who are working to see our country to be part of the solution. now come in back to what you said. yes, it is true that we have not a modernized some instrument for years. we've not been able to complete some multilateral negotiations in fisheries. for instance, we'd been shown that have been going on here for 21 years on how to to reduce ample fishery subsidies that need to be seen. and so if we can, we are hoping that during this conference we can have ministers reach an agreement . finally, after 21 years to, to come those harmful fishery subsidies. in addition, i think we talked reform, we need to update, negotiates in instruments. we have to update a monitoring capacity. and finally,
8:53 am
i get to settlement system and modernize the way that we approach our rule in the organisation. i think these are the things that will be discussed in this ministerial, and hopefully we'll make some progress along those lines. well, it's great to hear that this case you're hoping for some progress after 21 years on the issue of fisheries, particularly when environmental protection is top of most people's minds right now . but of course, the big climate, but looms all for certainly the w t o in recent years has been the massive disputes between china and the united states. and when big disputes like this arise, how hopeful are you, will be able to come through them and get back to smoother way of treating internationally. when you know you're pointing to the issue of, you know, the terrorist was the unilateral actions, that as some of the members have been taken, which you know, we are very,
8:54 am
we have to let them know that any options the coordinates golf course that the intentions between china and the u. s. as you said, between between us and europe. but you've seen recently that's actually the united states and europe have come together and tackled some of the long standing issues of parents. so that is very promising. and we hope that that can set an example of our members can bilaterally deal with each other and come to agreement with us going to the dispute settlement, the step that being said, geopolitical attentions are high, but i want to share something with you while we see the rhetoric very hard, actually, when you look at the trade number, you will see that trade between the u. s. and minor. and it's very robust and almost no time see the same be about trade between europe and china. so
8:55 am
sometimes what is actually happening on the ground dramatically different from the rhetoric that you hear to joe politically. ok, director general of the world trade organization goes a conjure whaler. thank you so much for joining us on counting the cos. thank you. night for centuries, saffron has been a powerful components of the economy and culture in indian administered kashmir. temperatures have been rising though, and rainfall is more erratic, threatening the future of this rare spice. partly metal reports. it's the busiest time of year for saffron farmers. may, roger, the family is harvesting purple flowers, but only bloom for a week. they live in indian, administered push me to pump or district, unlike others here have been farmers for generations. the last few years have been tough. you want to know russian walk to be food production has been decreasing
8:56 am
gradually when i was younger, we used to harvest about 15 kilograms. now we barely recover labor cars because of the erotic rainfall and at times, drought like conditions for the government installed irrigation pumps. but barely use them, but we have been suffering farming is hard work, but lucrative trans individually plucked and piled up a 150 pounds in flowers can yield one kilogram of saffron with sales for nearly 35 $100.00. now the was most expensive. spice is staring at an uncertain future. the modification re soften has always exceeded supply, and the gap is getting wider. production is down 30 percent on 2 decades ago, filling in some of the short fall in markets like these. it's suffering from iran. it's cheaper to buy and sometimes sold us cash meeting. the government opened this facility last year to increase production on to now realize i'm a good, nice family, dr. strong. the traditional way here is done by machines,
8:57 am
which is quicker and maintains the quality scientist as the strands regularly and certified them the cim. we're going to want to get it because we heard that cell phone gets the g i tag here in a scientifically process. so we can sell it globally at a good price that many farmers have produced lying in storage. i am impressed with facilities and technology similar. we know the sheila, he's on the saturn research center is telling farmers about new ways to so enter their crop. he also advises them on how to reduce the effects of climate change most to meet you, my guess is rainfall patterns have changed and it's not happening at the right time . and that's one of the main reasons behind the production decline. we have recommended a newer edition schedule to the farmer's fine to see their methods can improve saffron quality and increase production by up to 40 percent. but many farmers as skeptical. they have little faith in the government and see their lander secret. they say nature will look after them,
8:58 am
like it has done for centuries. and advances are short for this week, but remember, you can't get in touch with those via twitter, tweet me at alamo. here d, use the hash tag agent ctc. when you do or talk as an email came to the course ads, al jazeera dot, and next is much more for you online at al jazeera dot com slash a c t. c. that will take you straight to our page, which is entire episodes for you to catch up on. and that's it for this edition of counting the cost. i'm have them are hidden from the whole team. thanks for joining us. the uses next on out to sarah letting america is a region of wonder, i'm joy tragedy and yes of violet. but it doesn't matter where you are. you'll have to be able to relate to the human condition. with
