here's what's coming up hole in the book honestly so much movement today that the thing is to get this thing standing how fun to just hold the next one to go mathis country second look up what all that means for the taking of course. the first someone to sleep every weekend here on t.w. . a. pregnancy is maybe gearing up to celebrate the new case the poncho from the e.u. but south africa as a whole colony the nation is still so dependent on pregnant. why these cows are already hoped up to high speed five gene exploits before ops. and the best way to get the most out of people safari without scaring away the wild flocks. and let's do business south africa doesn't want the u.k.
7:17 pm
to leave the e.u. you could call it a colonial hangover but the truth is south africans are in a very vulnerable position the economy is reliant on exports and a great deal of their trade is with britain a market they simply can't afford to loose so that for it is by far the most important african trading partner for the e.u. and britain with volumes totaling over forty four billion euros a year. south africa's trade agreements with the e.u. will be unaffected by brics it but once the u.k. is out of the e.u. or could questions arise such as what happens if britain leaves the e.u.'s customs union. the british impoverished. and. south africa. exporting. crisper through. three. there would be. a problem the big concert to solve

africa south africa is the continent's leading producer of automobiles the u.k. and south africa have been thrashing out the question of which products will be tariff free for years but with little success from both sides are becoming increasingly frustrated about the constant back and forth philip the vet is following this story for us from johannesburg philip the thing is a large part of africa trade has been subject to preferential rates since the year two thousand and in that time trade between the two has shot up by over one hundred twenty percent could britain spoil the party. that is exactly the question that we are asking ourselves britain is an increasingly important trading partner to south africa it's not just a very low it's trading partner it's often with which we have a positive trade balance which will south africa is quite rare but a positive trait balance of about one point five billion dollars last year that's quite important to put it to you this way the u.k.

receives about forty percent of the total show products and troops that south africa exports at the moment so for a large part of our agricultural market britain is a key market we cannot afford not only to lose access to the british market but even a moment tree would really hits that fresh produce we drive on the same side of the road as for it's an investment have this car relationship with britain few other places drive on the left hand side of the road we just won't have any way to export our cars today will literally be piling up if we cannot get that sorted out so i can tell you south africa was quite relieved when franks was persuaded to south africa have a contingency plan in place. we are in a difficult position before the march deadline we were promised by our government that they would be a roll over agreement we were told at an agreement was in place and that it would be signed any moment they within some take me go pick ups at the last minute and at that moment we don't have
7:20 pm
a parliament because we go to the polls for general elections and date of may so we are able to rectify any deal x. rays and we hoping that a contingency plan will be put in place well before the next stage line but there are a number of these really tricky technical issues that still need to be sorted out about third party content about which products within south africa actually come from south africa if they ask parts from elsewhere and the same thing on the british side. i thought that may was very very close to actually drawing up a deal with five of the sub-saharan countries including south africa. we were told and i think the british public were told very much the same thing it was one of the holdouts will that make government to say look well there's not going to be a problem with trying to look we have these examples of trade agreements that we were going to put in place at the last second day with the statement make ups around that you malaysian of exports the products that are assembled in south
7:21 pm
africa are actually south african products in terms of the new trade agreement by i suppose so with the british and the two governments just could not see eye to eye with in the kind of timeframe both within and the huge pressure the south african government simply because our parliament is going into this recess was going to be dissolved ahead of the next and the british government because it had this dooming deadline things got really tense and then we had this last second reprieve so hopefully now when it comes back to the table they can thrash this out without getting stuck again philip just really briefly you say hopefully could it could be time for south africa to get over that colonial hangover and look elsewhere for business it would be very difficult for us to find the kind of export market that we require but work is hard and i don't wait to for instance increase exports of product use to china so if it really comes down to it i guess yes south africa would have to make a plan as we always do for that event for us in johannesburg thank you very much for the insight and looking beyond brags it's and the long awaited and much

global brands are betting on state stimulus turning things around and even better said to me if the trade war with the u.s. is resolved. germany is expected to slash its growth forecast for this year from one percent to just half as according to sources within the governing coalition the main reason for the week around look is the global economic slowdown. and officials have switched on the baltic season biggest offshore power project german chancellor angela merkel attended the opening she described the hour cone a wind farm as of national significance to germany as a transitions trooper nubile the energy. now the best thing about going on safari is getting so close to the wildlife but imagine if you could get even close without leaving the safety of your vehicle of course it can be done and the animals have caught on yet. the buffalo in this herd appear slightly confused

a familiar looking contraption is approaching but it's not making any noise the animals are curious look at this. guys who are sitting there they didn't hear us coming. they can only see your. list it's up one hundred percent just to stop and. then the zebra also notice that something's different it's been just a week since the first electric safari car started doing its rounds in the lay wildlife sanctuary. is it probable silently through the savanna passengers can at least go on safari with a sound ecological conscience. diesel powered jeeps have until now been the cheaper option and dirtier one but a simple idea has now changed that scenario the team of mechanics at a swedish startup in nairobi simply replaced the power train removing the need to build cars from scratch but even so switching to electric technology is still

a challenge so this a vision is to try if we don't try how can we then meet our environmental goals that we have for the future because someone needs to do it we're not doing that who is that someone. there have been teething problems the battery that powers this car's electronic systems has failed and not because of the rain but kind of and his colleagues are convinced that they're revamped jeep has what it takes. with everything new this got some small challenges i have a big faith that it will be so good to be a hundred percent reliable solar energy is already used to power the large budget. and now to power the jeep as well the solar panels will have to be double the number to generate enough power for all the lodges fleet and cost close to thirty thousand euros to retrofit each vehicle the team hope the investment will have paid for itself within six years. ultimately the start up in visage is installing aleck

took motors in my tattoos the highly polluting buses that clog the streets of nairobi so i think that the best thing about them a tide is the range that they drive and if you drive six or seven hundred kilometers per day there's a lot of them do that means that your payoff time for the solution were very very short and perhaps in the not too distant future city dwellers in nairobi can look forward to the kind of cleaner air and quieter surroundings that safari tourists and wildlife now already enjoy out on the savannah. so acute as the business.
