๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ Saudi Crown Prince MBS to visit Pakistan for investment deals l Al Jazeera English

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-W8xrbnNFTU
The Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, also known as MBS, is embarking on a tour of Asia. It will be his first visit to the region since the fallout over Khashoggi's murder. The prince's first stop is Pakistan, where he is expected to sign an investment package. Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan never joined the global chorus of outrage against the kingdom and the prince. Later that month, he was one of the few leaders to attend Davos in the desert - a pet project of MBS intended to elevate Saudi Arabia's image and promote foreign investment. The prince plans to show his appreciation by injecting billions of dollars into Pakistan's economy.

๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ Young and unemployed in Nigeria | Counting the Cost

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBeDG9J2onQ
Africa's most populous nation and largest economy has a youth unemployment problem. In Nigeria, nearly a quarter of the population is out of work and 20 percent is underemployed. For young people aged 15 to 35, the figures are grim: 55.4 percent of them are without work. Creating jobs has been one of the key issues discussed throughout this year's election campaign. Being young in Nigeria is "very challenging", explains Andrew Nevin, advisory partner and chief economist at PwC Nigeria. "Graduates from university have a great deal of difficulty in getting established. People that didn't go to university who should be getting vocational training are not getting it. They're not getting into formal employment. Given the scale of Nigeria, it's a challenge not just for Nigeria, but for Africa and the whole world." There are systemic problems behind unemployment, Nevin points out. "Oil over the last 30 years in this country has meant people have taken their eye off other industries, there's a lack of diversification that we have. The good news is that everyone recognises it, and they recognise it's a crisis ... People are discussing youth unemployment, the need for youth to be employed to have something gainful to do." Unless Africa trades with Africa and unless Africa invests in Africa, we're going to continue to be poor. Andrew Nevin, advisory partner & chief economist, PwC Nigeria "Structural problems remain here, the government hasn't tackled issues around the exchange rate policy or the oil subsidy ... so all of these issues are holding back investment and growth in Nigeria." In order for Nigeria to grow faster, "The country needs more investment," according to Nevin. "The most important thing is we need the private sector to grow in the next decade 10-15 times larger to really make a dent in unemployment and poverty in Nigeria. And that means every sector ... the biggest sector that needs to grow in Nigeria is real estate. Everyone needs a place to live and we have a deficit of 17 million homes, and the great thing about real estate is that it employs a lot of people, particularly carpenters, plumbers, labourers - so it really absorbs that young population." "Africans are going to continue to be poor unless Africans trade with Africans and increase the value added. We're very strong proponents of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) ... it's obvious that if we're just exporting raw materials to Europe or Asia, that we're going to continue to be in poverty in Africa. So I think people have recognised that, and I think the speed at which the AfCFTA agreement has come together is really astonishing. It illustrates there's a sense of a pan-Africanism that's coming, and the leaders of that recognise that unless Africa trades with Africa and unless Africa invests in Africa, we're going to continue to be poor." Also on this episode of Counting the Cost: Airbus A380: Production of the world's largest passenger jet is to end as a result of falling orders. Aircraft manufacturer Airbus has announced plans to stop making the A380 in two years' time, threatening thousands of jobs, as Natacha Butler reports from Toulouse. "The A380 is a superb plane - it's technologically brilliant, but it's an expensive plane both, to build and also to fly because it uses a lot of fuel," according to David Bailey, professor of industrial strategy at Aston University in Birmingham. "We've seen a growth in mid-range planes which are much cheaper to fly, so airlines have tended to prefer those instead." "The A380 isn't selling as much and it's not profitable ... the plane will be in service for many years to come on big-trunk routes like major hubs in the Middle East, but going forward they're not looking to expand their fleets and they won't be looking to replace them ... so we'll still see them for many years, but simply not on the scale that Airbus had imagined when they invested very very heavily in developing this enormous aeroplane," says Bailey. Turkey's ghost estates: Unfinished houses, empty high rises and row upon row of homes fit for royalty have all become symbols of Turkey's struggling economy. Construction has been the turbine behind the country's growth, but high inflation and a devalued currency are threatening to make the industry go from boom to bust, as Stefanie Dekker reports from Mudurnu.

๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฉ Sudan: A crumbling regime puts the squeeze on the media | The Listening Post (Full)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgY16z_8eWs
On The Listening Post this week: Mass demonstrations in Sudan continue despite a crackdown on protesters and the media. Plus, the Ambani brothers and India's media. Sudan: A crumbing regime puts the squeeze on the media A near total media blackout in Africa's third largest country, Sudan, and the protests there that threaten to undo 30 years of one-man rule, that of President Omar Al Bashir. The demands of those taking to the streets are straight forward: the end of the regime. And Bashir's response - the jailing of protestors and clamping down on journalism evokes echoes of the Arab Spring. Contributors Faisal Mohamed Salih - Journalist and columnist Shamael Al Noor - Journalist, Al Tayyar Khalid Al Eisir - Journalist and columnist Isma'il Kushkush – Freelance journalist On our radar Richard Gizbert speaks to producer Johanna Hoes about a scandal which has hit the French media about the online harassment of female journalists by their male colleagues. And in the Philippines a story about a website Rappler and its CEO Maria Ressa who got arrested on charges of cyber libel. Indian media & the Ambani brothers Mukesh Ambani is the most powerful media mogul in India and one of the richest men in Asia. He owns television networks that span regions and languages, news and entertainment. And the coverage he attracts is a study in brand power, a measure of the sway he has over Indian media outlets. Then there is his younger brother, who produces headlines of a different kind. For the past year, Anil Ambani has been a central figure in a corruption scandal involving the Indian government, some suspicious contracts and a multi-billion dollar deal for French fighter jets. Outlets reporting on this story have faced multiple lawsuits from Anil Ambani's companies alleging defamation and misreporting.
