The government of Tanzania has slapped Acacia Mining with a tax bill of $190 billion.That's equivalent to almost two centuries' worth of the gold producer's revenue. The charges relate to alleged under-declared export revenue from its Bul-yan-hulu and Buz-wagi mines between 2000 and 2017. The fine is the latest development in an escalating conflict between the government and Acacia. In March, Tanzania banned exports of unprocessed gold and copper - a move Acacia says is costing it about $1 million a day in lost revenue. The government has also accused the firm of operating illegally and tax evasion. Acacia has denied the allegations.

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! ❤

Invest In Ghana Ghana's wealth of resources, democratic political system and dynamic economy, makes it undoubtedly one of Africa's leading lights. Gaining the world's confidence with a peaceful political transition and a grounded and firm commitment to democracy has helped in expediting Ghana's growth in foreign direct investment (FDI) in recent years. Ghana has attracted the attention of well-known international businesses, investing in all sectors of our economy. All these investors have come to Ghana because they know we have a wonderful conducive social, political and economic environment in which they can invest, grow and be successful. Building on significant natural resources, our dear nation is committed to improving its physical infrastructure. Moreover, Ghana has recently embarked on an ambitious but achievable reform programme to improve the investment climate for both local and international investors. These efforts have paid off tremendously with Ghana being recognised by the World Bank Doing Business Report 2014 as the "Best Place for Doing Business in the ECOWAS Region". Also with the difficult times during last year where most countries did not show good growth levels due to the global economic downturn, Ghana had an economic growth rate provisional of 7.4% . As happy as we are to receive such recognition, we are even happier to see increased investments and re-investments in Ghana as a result of these ongoing reforms. Ghana has a solid tradition of investments in agriculture and agro-processing. The financial services and telecommunications sectors are fast gaining ground, providing dynamic and innovative services to the most diverse customers in the world. Further opportunities exist in manufacturing, ICT, and Tourism. Mineral deposits including gold and diamond abound, and with the discovery of oil, Ghana's famous black star has never shone brighter. The Ghana Investment Promotion Centre wish to welcome you all to our beautiful country. We trust you will find our reputation for unparalleled hospitality well-deserved, and our ability to triumph in challenging circumstances as steadfast as ever. We re-affirm our commitment to moving our continent forward and look forward to very useful engagements with you. Akwaaba!

Generation Left Behind (2016): In parts of central China, not far from the birthplace of modern China’s founding father Mao Zedong, 80 per cent of children are growing up without their parents. Mothers and fathers leave rural villages and towns for the big city factory jobs that have helped make China an economic powerhouse. Some return briefly; some never do. So children are farmed out to grandparents or boarding schools or left to fend mostly for themselves.

They sacrifice time with their child to make the money they think will better their child’s life. But some children have never known love. So they cannot handle affection when it is offered by volunteers and social workers. Many kids suffer outright rejection. A few local governments and NGOs are trying to fill the parental void, but it is just too vast. Some fear that without big reforms by the national government, tens of millions of children will be lost - at a major cost to the nation.

Tanzania today is a land of countless business opportunities. Over the past two decades, it has been transformed from a centrally planned economy to a market oriented system through successful implementation of legal, regulatory and institutional reforms. The Government has encouraged private sector led growth through restoration of market forces and less interference in commercial activities. Overall, the reforms have resulted into positive growth trends and impressive macro-economic indicators with inflation rates falling from 27.4% in 1995 to about 5.6% in 2005/06. Real GDP growth has averaged more than 6% during the last six years. Growth is based on solid macroeconomic foundations that strengthen the country's economy and rule out the possibility of a crisis in the medium term. In its recently published World Economic Outlook (April 2010), IMF predicts that the economies of East African countries of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania to be among the fastest growing economies in the world next year. Growth rates predicted for Tanzania is 6.7%, Uganda 6.4% and for Kenya 5.8% Main Sectors Agriculture The share of agriculture is 46.4% of the total GDP. Crops account for almost 34.6% and livestock almost 6.0%. However, the share of agriculture has been declining since the 1990s as a result of considerable growth in other sectors such as mining. Major cash crops include coffee, cotton, tea, tobacco and cashew nuts as well as horticultural and floricultural products. Main food crops are maize, rice, pulses and wheat. Mining Major minerals included gold, diamonds, and base metal such as nickel, cobalt and copper. Gem-stones (ruby, sapphire and tanzanite), iron ore and coal. It is the continent's third largest gold producer after South Africa and Ghana. Mining is the fastest-growing sector in Tanzania in terms of its share in Tanzania in terms of its share of exports which stands at around 40 percent. Manufacturing Main industries include those for cement, beverages, corrugated iron sheets, iron and steel products, cigarette, plastic and textile products. There is increasing evidence that the manufacturing sector is recovering with its contribution to real GDP growing by 9.0 percent in 2005 compared to 8.8 percent in 2004. Tourism Tanzania is the only country in the world to allocate more than 25% of its total area to wildlife parks and game reserve. It has 14 national parks, 17 game reserves, 50 game controlled areas, a conservation area, two marine parks and two marine reserves. ICT In little more than 6 years, the four private operators for mobile telecommunications have about 6mn subscribers in 25 cities. Several foreign companies, such as CelTel, Vodacom, Etisalat and Millicom have already invested in Tanzania and attest to the enormous growth potential of the sector. However, Tanzania's teledensity is still low, with the number of fixed and mobile cellular lines currently standing at 12 telephone lines per 1000 people. Business Environment and Reforms Tanzania embarked on a wide ranging reform program since the mid-1990s in order to provide an enabling business environment that would facilitate the development of the private sector. Among other initiatives is the Business Environment Strengthening for Tanzania (BEST) program that was initiated as a result of public private dialogue

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.

This was clipped from the 1982 documentary, For Export Only: Pesticides. That film was written, directed and produced by award wining independent documentary producer Robert Richter. His related second film is "For Export Only: Pharmaceuticals." These two films document shocking information about corporations that export products to developing countries that are prohibited or severely restricted in the countries where they are made. The products are banned or restricted because they cause cancer, liver disease, central nervous system diseases, sterility and death. Specific products and manufacturers are named as the two documentaries clearly depict their use and abuse in Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia, Brazil, Kenya, Ghana, Bangladesh and Malaysia. The brand names may be changed, but the practices documented in these powerful reports have not. Both films, For Export Only: Pesticides and "For Export Only: Pharmaceuticals, are available for home video purchases (not for classrooms, not for public screenings) by emailing [email protected] or telephoning (212) 947-1395, Monday Friday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., New York time.

Cameroon's two-year-old national crisis threatens the country's very foundations. Christopher Fomunyoh speaks to an audience of African security professionals at a program hosted by the Africa Center for Strategic Studies, discussing the nature and causes of the grievances that brought this crisis to a head, as well as recommendations for addressing them. CHAPTERS 2:49 - Overview of the Crisis 5:33 - History of Anglophone Marginalization in Cameroon 13:58 - The Role of Regional and Continental Bodies 17:36 - Conflict Patterns 19:11 - Different Approaches to the Crisis 22:43 - "How Do We Get Out of This?": 5 Recommendations Since October 2016, Cameroon has been dealing with a national crisis, one which threatens the foundation on which the country was built. There are two parallel tracks leading to the current crisis: At first, there were grievances from various sectors, notably teachers and lawyers in the Anglophone region. Because of how the crisis at that stage was managed, these grievances morphed into more serious political grievances that call into question the very existence of the republic of Cameroon. There is a lot of confusion about the nature and causes of the crisis, and the depth of the grievances people hold. Left unaddressed, these grievances will only cause the crisis to resurface.

Police in Asawase have banned all activities at the Asawase Community Centre until further notice following the stampede that killed nine people during a Salah party Thursday dawn. The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Asokore-Mampong, Nurudeen Hamidan says identification process has begun for the public or families of the deceased to find their loved ones who died in the incident. Meanwhile, security agencies have started investigations into the matter. Senior law lecturer at the Faculty of Law, University of Ghana, Dr Raymond Atuguba, has said the Supreme Court of Ghana cannot order an automatic deletion of persons who registered onto the electoral roll using the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) cards as a proof of identification. According to him, such an order will be dangerous for the constitutional democracy in Ghana. Ghana’s Former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings has restated her comments that she paid the tuition fees of the late broadcaster, Komla Dumor when he was at the University. The family of the late broadcaster earlier denied the assertions. But the presidential hopeful of the National Democratic Party (NDP) has stressed that she provided financial support to the late broadcaster at a time his family needed help. As if overtaking Ghana as the number one producer of cocoa is not enough, Ivory Coast is now threatening to usurp Ghana’s position as the number one mining hub in West Africa. This has been attributed to a reduction in investment in exploration, coupled with reforms in the mining code and security issues posed by illegal mining activities.
