Tanzanian gold mine enters into fairtrade deal with UK
 
03:02
For many people, a gold ring is a symbol of everlasting love; but sometimes the story behind the gold itself is not as happy. Tanzania is the fourth largest gold producer in Africa with exports of more than $1.6bn in 2014. Hundreds of thousands of the country's miners work in harsh conditions with little pay and even fewer prospects for their future, but that could soon change with a new Fairtrade deal to sell gold to the UK - the first of its kind in Africa.

10 African Countries for Doing Business in 2018
 
05:34
African Countries for Doing Business ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ The Doing Business index is a ranking index system, created by the World Bank Group, which indicates the regularity environment of businesses. A higher ranking, which is indicated by a lower numerical value, specifies a stronger protection of property rights, and visa versa. Ten of these areas have been included in this year’s ranking on the “ease of doing business”. They are: Starting a business. Obtaining a building permit. Connecting to electricity. Transferring ownership. Getting credits. Protecting minority investors. Payment of taxes. Cross-border trading. Enforcing contracts. Resolving insolvency. Following this criteria here are the top ten African economies, as ranked in the 2018 Doing Business report. Mauritius The World Bank has revealed that Mauritius is positioned in 25th place worldwide, and in 1st place in Africa with a score of 77.54. The country is ranked twenty-four places higher this year, from its 49th position in the 2017 Doing Business report. With a score of 77.54 points (out of a total of 100) Rwanda Rwanda emerged in the top 50 countries of the World Bank’s Doing Business report for the first time. Globally, Rwanda is 41st on the “ease of doing business” ranking, compared to the 56th position in last year’s report. In addition, the country has made 52 reforms over the last decade, bringing significant improvements to the environments of business and investment. Morocco This report ranks Morocco in 69th position with a score of 67.91 points. Therefore, Morocco confirms its position as a leader in North Africa, ahead of: Tunisia (88th), Egypt (128th), and Algeria (166th). The kingdom has also managed to climb to the 3rd rank among the Middle East and North African (MENA) countries – behind the United Arab Emirates (21st) and Bahrain (66th), and, for the first time, ahead of the Sultanate of Oman (71st according to the same report). Kenya Kenya has gained twelve places in the 2018 Doing Business report by coming in at the 80th position, compared to the 2017 report when it was ranked 92nd. “The improvements are driven by the government and the private sector in the business environment. Last year Kenya delivered the highest number of business-related reforms on the African continent”, said Adnan Mohammed, secretary of the Industrialization Cabinet. Botswana While it was marked as the 71st country in the World Bank’s 2017 report, Botswana lowered its status in the 2018 report. It is now ranked at 81 and 5th in Africa. South Africa With a score of 64.89, the 2018 report ranks South Africa 82nd. This country has always been the most powerful country in Africa in terms of touristic attraction, as millions of tourists visit South Africa each year to enjoy its beauty. Zambia According to the Doing Business report of 2018, Zambia has gained 13 places – moving from the 98th position to the 85th position. Currently, Zambia has been listed as one of the world’s top 10 economies with the most notable improvements. Tunisia Tunisia, now ranked at 88, has dropped 11 places from its spot at 77 in the 2017 report. Following behind Morocco, the cradle of the Arab Spring is the 2nd country in Doing Business in North Africa. However, once being ranked in 42nd place, the country has dropped 46 spots in just seven years. Seychelles Seychelles scored 61.41 in the 2018 Doing Business report, which placed the country in the 95th position. With a population of 94,913 inhabitants, the country came in 93rd in the 2017 report. By removing administrative barriers and offering a variety of economic incentives, the government has worked hard to create a strong environment for investment. The private sector is playing an important role in the economic dynamism that the country is experiencing. Lesotho With a score of 60.42, Lesotho is ranked in the 104th position worldwide and 10th in Africa. Government officials are making efforts to improve the foreign investment rates in the country, mainly in the tertiary and mining sectors. However, efforts are also oriented to new dynamic sectors such as news technologies and services. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Music Used in This Video: ►https://goo.gl/TIXONx ►https://goo.gl/tQ2HCf ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ► For copyright matters relating to our channel please contact us directly at :https://goo.gl/wRjjJU ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ For Ads Placement & Sponsorship, email us :[email protected] Hirwa10™ Thanks for watching! ❤

There are fears in Zimbabwe that plans to introduce a new industry tax to fund a state owned mining exploration entity could force some mines to shut down. The government levy would transform the Minerals Marketing Corporation, into a mineral exploration company. However, at a time when commodity prices are sliding across the board, Farai Mwakutuya reports, that this the extra tax will hurt mining operations which are already struggling to stay afloat.

African Countries Put Pressure on China
 
03:15
VOA Learning English, this is the Economics Report. Ghana arrested more than 100 Chinese nationals in June. They were accused of illegally mining gold. In February, Zambia seized a Chinese operated mine because of safety concerns. And Gabon has decided to seize property from three foreign oil companies, including one from China. Some observers say these and other incidents appear to be a reaction by African governments against Chinese investment on the continent. China became Africa's top trade partner in 2009. Yet some Africans believe they are not getting enough for their exports. Bright Simons is with the IMANI group. He says China is no longer known only for giving loans and sending workers to build hospitals and roads. He says China is now a business partner. Ghana has taken steps against foreigners involved in "shallow mining" for gold. Only Ghanaians can get government approval for this kind of mining. Bright Simons says some Ghanaians "rent" the permits to foreigners who have the money and training to actually mine the gold. Observers say nations like Niger and Gabon want to get more for their natural resources. They want more money, more local jobs and better living conditions. Worldwide demand for oil, coal, iron ore and uranium has made their negotiating position stronger. Some nations are also concerned about abusive or illegal operations. In Gabon, the government says it is planning not to extend operating permits to three companies, including Addax, which is part of China's Sinopec. Many experts believe the partnership between China and Africa will continue to grow, but now perhaps on more equal terms. For VOA Learning English, I'm Laurel Bowman.

#ARW2017 Talk "Ghana’s Path to an Industrial–led Growth”
 
52:59
"Ghana’s Path to an Industrial–led Growth: A reflection of the Role of Decentralisation" by Dr. Ama Pokuaa Fenny Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research/ University of Ghana Ghana’s industrial sector has evolved with the various stages of political and economic reforms since independence in 1957. As the country plans to implement a new long term development plan, industrialisation has been projected to be at the forefront of this agenda. An industrial-led growth will ensure that manufacturing sub-sector will be boosted to improve production and provide jobs. Ghana’s efforts to decentralize its key institutions to enhance economic growth has seen very little success especially in the area of linking industries to local institutions. A number of policy and programme initiatives by the government have been undertaken especially in the area of revamping the local economies through the existing decentralized systems. Despite these interventions some regions in Ghana have failed to develop. The envisioned industrial geographical dispersion has not been realised as we find many Ghanaian industries concentrated in a few regions. This paper presents a critical review of the role of decentralized institutions in industrialisation in Ghana. The paper utilises annual data from the Ministry of Finance and Ghana Statistical Service from 1981 to date. The paper highlights the challenges facing Ghana’s decentralized institutions and identifies the opportunities that can catalyse the growth of Ghana’s industrial sector if key policy strategic reforms are undertaken. Tanzania’s leading think Tank REPOA in collaboration with the European Union Delegation to Tanzania and the East Africa, organized a workshop on how institutions enhance or constrain socio-economic transformation, particularly a transformation which puts industrialization at the centre of its development path. The workshop held in Dar es Salaam featured international and national high-level researchers, policy makers, development partners, CSOs and media to promote the research on how institutions may ease the industrialization development in Tanzania. The workshop enhanced the understanding of the role of institutions (and individuals) in shaping the character of growth and socio-economic transformation, both in theory and practice in Tanzania. Furthermore, the workshop brought together researchers and members of governmental bodies, as well as civil society representatives, to further promote research and deepen policy dialogue on the institutional needs for the Second Five-Year Development Plan and Development Vision 2025.

Philippines Black Market is China's Source of Cheaper Gold
 
01:53
High world gold prices are a boon to small-scale miners in the southern Philippines these days, and a mine worker can earn ten times as much as a laborer in Manila. Mr Landa needs it to support his eight children. [Camilo Landa, Mine Worker, Father of Eight]: "I'll be able to buy rice to eat. I can pay our loans. I'm happy." But while miners are flourishing, the Philippine government is losing out. By law, gold produced in the country's small mines should be sold to the Central Bank, to pump up their reserves. But the bank's purchases have plummeted by 98 percent this year. Many point out that a newly imposed tax on gold is the reason behind the rise in smuggling. Officials and sources say the gold is being smuggled to Hong Kong, before disappearing into China. [Leo Jasareno, Director, Bureau of Mines and Geosciences]: "Our suspicion is that it's either black market or smuggled out of the country. So 80 percent of gold, lost." [Arthur Uy, Owner of Small Mines and Local Governor]: "The black market now is flourishing, so they would sell now their produce now to the black market." Reports of illegal sales to China are unverified, but official data from Hong Kong shows gold shipments from the Philippines went from a mere 24 pounds in the year 2000 to 90 tons in 2010. But in a puzzling discrepancy, Philippine customs only accounted for three percent of that volume. The government is set to impose strict control on small scale mines. Illegal mining now accounts for up to 15 percent of global gold output.

China-Ghana relations must take the lead in Africa - Xi Jinping to Akufo-Addo
 
03:59
The President of China, Mr. Xi Jinping, has stressed that he is prepared to work with his Ghanaian counterpart, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to ensure that relations between Ghana and China take the lead on the African continent. According to President Xi, the “deep historic bond” between China and Ghana, nurtured by leaders such as Mao Zedong, Kwame Nkrumah and others, has resulted in “a 58-year old tradition of friendship”. Whilst acknowledging the role of President Akufo-Addo “to the growth of China-Ghana relations”, the Chinese leader stated that, “You (President Akufo- Addo) are an old friend of the Chinese people… and I am ready to work with you.” He was confident that, under their joint leadership, Ghana and China would “enrich our friendship, take our bonds of co-operation to new heights, and, thereby, deliver greater benefits to our two peoples.” President Xi Jinping made this known, on Saturday, 1st September 2018, when he held bilateral talks with President Akufo-Addo at the Great Hall of the People, in Beijing, as part of the Ghanaian President’s State Visit to China. Describing Ghana as a “trustworthy friend and good partner for development”, the Chinese President assured President Akufo-Addo of his commitment “to intensify our co-operation, give support to each other’s concerns, and ensure that China-Ghana relations take the lead in China-Africa relations.” To this end, the two Presidents witnessed the signing of eight (8) Agreements that define the ambit of Chinese co-operation with Ghana in the immediate years ahead. Principal amongst them was the $2 billion Sino-Sure Framework Agreement, which will enable Sino-Hyrdo Corporation, a subsidiary of Power China, to finance and participate in major infrastructure, road and railway construction projects. President Xi Jinping also indicated that China will provide a grant of 200 million Chinese Yuan, the equivalent of $30 million, to Ghana, to assist in the effective implementation of the economic policies of President Akufo-Addo. Additionally, the project embarked on by the Chinese government to construct 1,000 boreholes across some parts of Ghana, which will help in ensuring access to potable water, he said, will be completed. The Chinese President also assured Ghana of China’s commitment to financing the construction of the Jamestown Fishing Port Complex, the expansion of the Cape Coast Sports Stadium, the commencement of the Phase 2 expansion project of the University of Health and Allied Sciences in Ho, and the construction of a new cocoa processing facility, in line with President Akufo- Addo’s vision of adding value to Ghana’s raw materials. On defense co-operation, President Xi Jinping announced the provision of a 50 million Chinese Yuan ($7.3 million) grant, in military assistance, which will also aid in the construction of the headquarters of Ghana’s Armed Forces. Furthermore, the defense cooperation, he added, will also encompass the strengthening of Ghana’s capability to help improve maritime security in the The Gulf of Guinea, training of Ghanaian peacekeepers, strengthening the capacity of Ghana’s Police Service, and the establishment of a legal assistance and extradition treaty between Ghana and China. “Such co-operation will inure to the benefit of our two countries. We will support your country in achieving its vision of Ghana Beyond Aid,” he added. President Xi also pledged that his government will encourage Chinese firms to invest in Ghana, and take advantage of flagship programmes such as 1- District-1-Factory, Programme for Planting for Food and Jobs, infrastructural development initiatives, particularly in the roads, railway, and energy sectors, amongst others. With Ghana being the African country with the highest number of students studying in China, the Chinese leader stated that his country will increase the number of scholarships to Ghana, and also advocated for the deepening of collaboration between media organisations, think tanks, and universities of the two countries. President Xi Jinping, in highlighting the importance of UN Reforms, urged Ghana to continue its advocacy on the reform of the matter and reiterated China’s support to this end. On the matter of illegal mining in Ghana, and the involvement of some Chinese nationals in the phenomenon, the Chinese President assured President Akufo-Addo that his government will “co-operate with Ghana and tackle the problem”, and indicated his full acceptance of the enforcement of Ghanaian law in the area of illegal mining. The Chinese President stressed the endorsement by his Government of the vision of building a Ghana Beyond Aid by President Akufo-Addo, and urged his Ghanaian counterpart to be resolute in realizing this vision not only for Ghana, but also for the entire African continent, as it would lead to the growth of independent, sovereign nations, acting in their own interests and with their own resources, which was the example of China.

VISAS For Sale: NDC Party Office Turned 'VISA HEADQUARTERS'
 
16:41
Following the announcement of reforms in visa acquisition procedures, among other things, by the US embassy, the US Ambassador to Ghana, Robert Jackson, has come under intense backlash with a lot of Ghanaians throwing salvos from all angles directed at him. Some have even questioned the motive behind a drastic reform withdrawing courtesies and protocols accorded members of parliament and some politicians. But what we tend to overlook is the bitter truth that the diplomatic community in Ghana are wide awake and privy to all those tricks that amount to Visa racketeering. Coincidentally, this paper has established from a damning undercover video currently in our possession that the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) party office near Paloma Hotel was a busy spot for Visa racketeering during the party reign. This happened under the full glare of then President John Mahama. As the party in power, capacity building workshops and other international invitations from NDC internationally-affiliated socialist groups were abused. The NDC party office was virtually turned into all manner of visa trades where a special account was created at Fidelity Bank for transactions. The video has private undercover investigators posing as desperate travelers who thronged the NDC party office in search of opportunities to travel abroad to make a better living. It was also shocking to learn that this practice is seen as a major reward package for NDC foot soldiers who could afford paying some aspects of the costs. It was nail-biting to discover that a whopping sum of ‘Obama USD$ 7,000 and $1,500’ were amounts mentioned as charges from prospective migrants. All these being demanded and captured on the video tape. This goes a long a way to vindicate the US Embassy to the effect that the embassy was right in stripping some politicians off their protocols and courtesies under international conventions. It was clear these fraudulent activities took centre stage through the help of well-known big hands from the party leadership. All they cared about was amassing wealth and nothing short of that. The private investigators engaged one of the most popular activists at the party office whose name was only given as Dela. He was the point man at the centre of collecting the visa monies but the first point of call was this guy at the reception who gave details of how the whole visa deal works; then Dela took over from him to the next stage of the process.

West Africa Breakfast Briefing
 
01:12:07
On 22 May 2013 Menas Associates hosted our fourth event with Clyde & Co entitled "the geo-economic shifts in West Africa." As Asian and South American companies invest billions of dollars in energy, industry and mines in West Africa, the region is becoming vastly more competitive for Western companies. Governments across the region are demanding better deals from companies on taxes and royalties as well as technology transfer and local content. At the same time, civic activists and opposition politicians are demanding far higher standards of transparency and accountability from companies and governments. A new generation of leaders, Presidents Jonathan and Mahama in Nigeria and Ghana respectively, and Ouattara and Condé in Côte d'Ivoire and Guinea, all publicly back economic and political reform but insist jobs are the top priority. Although West Africa's economies have been growing at an average of over 6% a year for a decade, they have not generated enough new jobs to keep pace with population growth. The jobs crisis has worsened other causes of regional instability: trans-border crime such as drugs and people trafficking; political/religious insurgencies; environmental degradation and despoliation; poor provision of health and education in rapidly urbanising areas. Our speaker Patrick Smith examined the reform record of governments in Nigeria, Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire and Guinea; the strengths and weaknesses of the incumbent governments; the main arguments over policy and who's winning; and prospects for political change in the next round of elections. Patrick Smith is a senior associate at Menas Associates, publisher of Africa Confidential and Africa-Asia Confidential, and Editor-in-Chief of the Paris-based Africa Report since 1991. He has lived and worked in West, East and Southern Africa for more than 30 years. A regular commentator on the BBC, in the last year he has reported on the new democracy movements in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt, as well as national elections in Nigeria, the start-up of commercial oil production in Ghana, the regional security crisis in East Africa and the ruling party's ructions in South Africa. He is also a regular contributor to the Guardian, the Observer, the Economist and other international media. About Menas Associates Menas Associates is an information provider and political risk consultancy specialising in analysis and consulting services to businesses and governments operating in developing markets.

VOA Special English - African Countries Put Pressure on China
 
03:15
VOA Special English - VOA Learning English - African countries put pressure on China EnSub: VOA Learning English, this is the Economics Report. Ghana arrested more than 100 Chinese nationals in June. They were accused of illegally mining gold. In February, Zambia seized a Chinese operated mine because of safety concerns. And Gabon has decided to seize property from three foreign oil companies, including one from China. Some observers say these and other incidents appear to be a reaction by African governments against Chinese investment on the continent. China became Africa's top trade partner in 2009. Yet some Africans believe they are not getting enough for their exports. Bright Simons is with the IMANI group. He says China is no longer known only for giving loans and sending workers to build hospitals and roads. He says China is now a business partner. Ghana has taken steps against foreigners involved in "shallow mining" for gold. Only Ghanaians can get government approval for this kind of mining. Bright Simons says some Ghanaians "rent" the permits to foreigners who have the money and training to actually mine the gold. Observers say nations like Niger and Gabon want to get more for their natural resources. They want more money, more local jobs and better living conditions. Worldwide demand for oil, coal, iron ore and uranium has made their negotiating position stronger. Some nations are also concerned about abusive or illegal operations. In Gabon, the government says it is planning not to extend operating permits to three companies, including Addax, which is part of China's Sinopec. Many experts believe the partnership between China and Africa will continue to grow, but now perhaps on more equal terms. For VOA Learning English, I'm Laurel Bowman.

Burden of Gold
 
15:59
GUMAOS, Philippines - For as long as Aiza can remember, her day began earlier than most as she, her sister, and their mother worked to eke out a meagre living at the gold mines in Cumaos. Aiza learned the practice from her mother, and now her six year-old sister is learning from her. When her mother fell ill last year, Aiza had to quit school and work full time to support the family and pay for her mother's medical bills. She is just one of almost 18,000 children who work in the small-scale mining and quarrying sector in the Philippines. Silver winner at the 2007 New York Film Festival as best stories from the field, Burden of Gold called attention to the problem and mobilized an international effort to end the practice for good. Burden of Gold was directed by Joseph Fortin, executive produced by Gerard Carreon and field produced by Baby Ruth Villarama in collaboration with ILO-IPEC and UNICEF. http://www.ilo.org/wow/Articles/lang--en/WCMS_081364/index.htm
