into space, the rest of us mortals have to do with living on this planet and increasingly challenging prospect in light of climate change with parts of the world burning up and the global population still on the rise, which is why utopian visions of urban planning and sustainable cities are a hot topic everywhere. the dream was to create a place where people live, work, and play real. we're leaving the car manufacturer, toyota is building a tiny prototype city of the future by mount fuji. the project was developed by danish star architect, getting them out of the prototype is called woven city. as it seeks to weave a multi layer transportation system, construction follows the latest environmental standards using wood stand and concrete. the foundation stone was just recently late. next year professor

tatyana schneider says these futuristic projects are based on old ideas to your time. what was city would and city in sooner projects a lab living laboratory, bakery different mention div living there will be workers and classes. and this isn't actually often an art for mrs. reminiscent. the classy industrial revolution reached at over in northern saudi arabia. there are plans for me on the line, 170 kilometer long, 0 carbon emission city. further, smart cities have been designed for dubai and dabby, many of which are green, or at least pretending to be the, the 1st was a carbon neutral city in abu dhabi,
7:47 pm
which was supposed to be completed by 2014 the then came the financial crisis. and the completion date was shifted to 2030 but except for the buildings designed by architects or norman foster, they're still little to see. the problem is that these utopia tarnish quickly as spanish architect be sent there. i was in my star and my studies over this was a good idea in the year 2008. and they have a plan to do a c, d, w. in fact, very expensive because he was elevated on up all the on the same way that these, the line is how the avia it will not be done because it's impossible to do. city that has a huge underwriting infrastructure. quite yard is planning his version of smart cities in the hills near barcelona rather than transfer motor vehicles into tunnel
7:48 pm
. his plan is to avoid them in the architect has just want to pay for a new self sufficient city near beijing, a recycling energy production and food production will all be taken care of within the city limits lose, our city should absorb instead of a meteor door and in order to do it, we need to transform our buildings by that, and they should generate energy like i did 3, they generate their own energy. so the new globalization should be based on producing things locally. while we are connected with digital network. the other thing tanks are looking to accommodate the entire world's population in one small face, leaving space for nature to develop on the rest of the planet. utopia ideas are
7:49 pm
booming because there is a desperate need for more living than except years. more than 1000000000 people need to be eyes, and that means that we need to build a key balance of 150 or 3000000 people every mouse in the next 30 years. so that means that we are in the middle of a huge process. so for one session, i need to find solutions that need to be applied not only to retrofit our cities, but to good own new cities tend to create new cities. and i'm not sure those ideas of hyper urban ization are going to sit well with everybody abroad . onward now to look at some of the other culture headline, starting with the arrival on thursday in new york of a scaled down version of the famous statue of liberty from france. or the peace comes as a token to franco, american friendship,
7:50 pm
135 years after the nation gifted its big sister to the u. s. built in sculpted in bronze. the new lady, liberty stands nearly 3 meters tall, and she'll remain on display of ellis island throughout the july, 4th weekend. and then travel to washington d. c. where she will grace the gardens of the friends from bastard's residence for the next 10 years. russia and famous was showing ballet premier to modern adaptation of the classic check of play. the siegel valley is the 3rd joint worked for the company. by composer in the mood sky, choreographer you leave for so half and director annex under more logic cough. and it was the final premier of its 200 and 45th season. a special one from both artists and fans alike. as it marked the reopening after covered 1900 lockdown in russia, and some classical moves for

7:52 pm
a reconnection for its curator edmund, edmund default has created a spot for visitors to wash their hands. not so much a hygiene precaution as a tactile ritual. it's part of his invitation into the world of henry moore, in perry green, where britain's most important sculptor lived and worked until his death in 1986. me. when you begin with henry moore, when you begin with this living, they can be quenched, open. they can offer solace, but they can also refuse solace. pans are of central importance to dissolve a master potter, his hands shape the most delicate porcelain sculptures. and now he's able to bring the works of his role model henry more closer to the public. but when we see the show, i very much wanted to do this danger of inviting people to touch his sculpture. he's chosen the bronze statue called king and queen because of
7:53 pm
the beauty in the way the hands of the 2 figures are poised. hans were recurring motifs in henry moore's work. for him, hans were not simply sculptors tools. there are also frequent motifs in his drawings of himself. this was how he wanted to be seen, and how he saw himself with his living hands that allowed him to realize his artistic vision for 88 years. sebastian oberon, i see from henry moore foundation, says the living hand exhibition is very much treated the artist's intentions. and he appreciates that the works can be explored where they were created anymore was a strong believer in the importance of a more santorial experience of sculpture. i need, he certainly believe that touching sculptures enhances the experience of his work. i like the sound of the for you call knife edge because this
7:54 pm
finance knife edge now stands in front of prison houses of parliament. other works of his can be seen or un buildings or the former west german chancellor in bond. they're all of an imposing scale. but they started out quite small again for the small idea, because the small so that i can see it from all wrong on judges from underneath whole, if in my hand, hold it against the ball shape a distance that is get a complete control over the 3 dimensional visitors to the exhibition are also invited to touch. this later extract work sculpted from a stalactite it depicts the mother protectively holding her child. she must eventually like go. as a 3rd sculpture, deval has chosen a large bronze work. this is a pick a court. why did he call it hand?
7:55 pm
you only find that house by touching it. i see exhibitions planned opening in march 2020 was postponed due to the pen demik, much also limited our physical interaction with the world. so edmond devolves concept of connection through tactile experience. has taken on new meaning we all have deprived solely to do that with people, but also with art, with the object significant visitors approach the sculptures respectfully appreciating the unique opportunity to grasp the complexity of moore's work that offered by being allowed to touch them strangely. it's not about the surface, how beautiful and seductive abroad, and might be or piece of stone might be discovering the story of the
7:56 pm
deep within that in the past, within the sculpture, the show was an invitation to get closer to the person, henry more and finally, he may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the deep, mournful croon of jim morrison, the late poets and lead singer of the doors had a foundational influence on rock music history. saturday mark the 50th anniversary of his death that just 27 years of age in paris. and so will lighter figurative candle with some bars of their hit riders on the storm. all the best. you and hope to see you next time, just in the world

8:02 pm
according to our classification done. and we want to encourage people to get boxes and they said, well, you know, you mentioned i went on to him from philosophy in the beginning. we didn't know much about this barrier and we wanted to wait and see what we're looking into. and i can also tell you, you know, this area to spreading very rapidly in germany, 200 transitional oath dw correspondent berg masses at windsor castle outside london. i asked what we've learned from the news conference about the state of relations between the 2 countries. bilateral is really the buzzword feel for the u. k, because not having a seat anymore and brussels having just left the european union. the u. k. really need to form strong relationships with its partner. and germany is of course, one of the most important strategic partners for the u. k is the 2nd largest largest trading partners, but also in other issues like foreign policy and security. the interests really
8:03 pm
align say we've now seen that a joint declaration and foreign and security policy was just published. and also much more that, that intending to do cultural exchange between germany and you can also use exchange. so really acknowledging that this relationship needs to be worked on for it to stay stable while britain has left the european union. now that the northern protocol came up in questions after their statements and mr. jones and had claimed this as a big breaks it victory. but it is a source of huge friction between britain and the new it definitely is and not just between britain and you, it's a huge concern for people in northern ireland. i've just been to belfast and this is really what people are talking about. it's the trade between the rest of the u. k and northern ireland is the more difficult now that britain has left the european union, northern ireland as economically still aligned to the you and that causes friction
8:04 pm
. and uncle american, i think, was just white, careful not to wait into this road too much. she said, well, we have to look for a pragmatic solution, but she said that's not over, stretch ourselves. so i think she really made a point of leaving this with the european union and, and the way adjent johnson also to have a sensible and good relationship. not just with germany, but also with the you. and i going to back has been having tea with the queen and when's the castle left behind you? was that just a courtesy visit or something more substantial for i'm going to america. i would think that this would have been really important, maybe the part of the visit that she enjoyed most who know she would be too polite to, to say, but we know that she's definitely a fan of the queen and she had invited the queen to berlin she also was a guest of the queen in buckingham palace twice already,
8:05 pm
but that the she finishes this farewell visit in the u. k. with is tea here at windsor. i think she would have been very pleased about that. she told us when she came here over for the g 7 summit, that it was the highlight of that visit to cornwall just a few weeks ago to meet the queen and meet other members of the roles family. so i can think that this was definitely something that she would have enjoyed mass and windsor. thank you. so the last remaining american and nato troops have left the background military base in afghanistan. and it's not been handed over to africa. and forces by graham was the center of the u. s. and nato's war against the taliban and out came to the 100000 troops station at its peak, 20 emissions now coming to an end. and a complete withdrawal of all foreign forces for the country is go to the eminence. i've got a sense security situation is precarious. the taliban has welcomed the departure and there are rising fears of

8:09 pm
troops. news, colonel richard, campus ministry analyst and former commander of british forces in afghanistan. i asked him about the challenges facing the country following the withdrawal of us troops from background base. i think the, the problem that we face now is to the fact that the talent about have been research and have been seizing territory all around afghanistan, particularly in recent weeks in the north. and that they've been launching deliberate campaign of attacks on anyone who's been cooperating with international forces. and anybody who potentially could provide the leadership to work against that rule with a view of taking over the whole country or most of the country and bringing down the government in couple. and that's an unfortunate consequence of deciding to leave without any security conditions being taken into consideration because
8:10 pm
effectively we're leaving now on the basis of a random date line. not on the basis of any conditions or any other considerations . i will take a look now, some of the other stories making news around the world. one in 2008 was formed a human chain in northwest and syria, stretching from the border with turkey to the rebel held city of atlanta, opposed to russia's efforts to close the remaining border crossing that allows a into aris, held by syrian insurgence. and after the destruction of a bridge essential for delivering food to eat, his tea gray region, the government has rejected accusations that it is using hunger weapon aid work a say almost a 1000000 people face to face. and after 8 months fighting cutterson data, alexander lucas shanker has ordered the complete closure of these countries, a border with neighboring ukraine, claiming the rebel groups are planning a coo and weapons weapons coming from the country. i better assist become

8:18 pm
a huge success for democracy. because the race to the button was also something which produced a situation where we could not decide on our national democratic level about the right way of fair and moderate taxation of cooperates. we have had to look at what the others were doing and now we can do it in a common way and we understand that there is no chance for big companies. for instance, to avoid being text. we have to work on this agreement a bit more, but it is not something that cannot be avoided more we will have to now, and this will give us a chance for a better income for companies that fund a lot of money, but forgot to pay taxes and they will have to have not there are still some big hurdle the head for the tax agreement. 9 countries refuse to sign up including orland, kenya. nigeria is to provide a loophole in the new tax plans. also,

each of the $130.00 government has to find a way to introduce legislation putting the agreement into law. finally, many countries demanded special exemptions. the u. k. wants to exempt its financial industry. for example. others asked for carve outs for the likes of manufacturing machinery and shipping. some economists, the skeptical one. again, 15 percent is not a little. and there will be the new rules that apply only to the biggest companies across 7000 in the road. and it's maybe not as easy as one would need to call the clock. now let's take a look at some of the other business stories making headlines. the m f, as it's optimistic about the look to the u. s. economy. if it's the growth will hit 7 percent this year, much higher than previous forecasts. the fastest pace in a generation government spending us. i'm stimulus measures driving the growth on this. chinese regulators have band ride hailing giant dd from signing up any new
8:20 pm
uses. it comes just days after the, the went public in the u. s. the regulators that they were investigating the security of the app, but didn't say how long that review would take. africa is e commerce market is booming, but the problem is, facing women entrepreneurs are holding back the market for from even bigger growth . that's the least the take away from a new study by the international finance corporation at the world bank. it estimates e commerce markets could be nearly $15000000000.00 larger by 2030 in africa. if the gender gap between male and female sellers were closed in nigeria and kenya, women already make up the majority of sellers on africa, largest e commerce platform. jimmy at the ivory coast, women sellers are still lagging behind. men and women own e commerce. businesses tend to be smaller, focused on less profitable sectors like fashion, and have less access to financing. result is male sellers are seeing higher average
8:21 pm
sales and female sellers on line. so let's discuss this further with henrietta coke . who is over saw this research for the international finance corporation and is well and also chairman of the junior at nigeria website, juliet, another. thank you for joining us, henrietta colbert. i consult with you. the fact the female sellers are in the majority and some african ecommerce market is something to celebrate right? to the indeed it is. however, if we look across the african continent, what the potential could be if we were to bring not just more women entrepreneurs onto the platform, but into higher income sectors. we would just need massive benefits both for the platform for the white economy. and then of course the woman entrepreneur, but there's several accounts that hold women entrepreneurs back. one you just mention is clearly one of the key constraints access to fineman. but i'd take it
8:22 pm
one step further. it's not just financial services in this and the credit, insurance product, it's housing finance and certainly start up capital. in fact, one of our research findings is only 7 percent of volume in financing instead of capital is going to women entrepreneurs. then combine that with the additional challenge of child care responsibilities. and everyone around the world has seen 1100000000 kids out of school. the majority of the care were being picked up by women are the entropy, nurses, employees, that unpaid work is really most of the show that by when i and then lastly, we still have this so they buy. so women are less likely to access in your business opportunities on the internet. juliessa. now let me just bring you in because you have great experience in this both as a woman, any comments about chair of jamia, nigeria, what's your view on whether women are suffering
8:23 pm
a disadvantage in the sector? because the figures in terms of the number of fellows in your businesses in nigeria, can you suggest the not thank you very much. yeah, i think it's less a question now. suffering a disadvantage in terms of access. it's moral. there are a lot more opportunities that women can take, that currently exist in the fact that men are taking some of the findings from the savvy. for example, if men take more of the training opportunities, men take more of the landing opportunities which we have already under those lending opportunities available to women as the out to men. while men just tend to take those opportunities more, we men also sort of reflect the traditional categories that they are currently in offline. they sort of reflect that online as well, which is why you find women in fashion and those kinds of products that left in
8:24 pm
terms of average item price. whereas men have traditionally offline being electronics, why goods and higher value categories. and they have also reflects about online as well. so the key message for women is e commerce gives you an opportunity to, to bring down the barriers. right? no one knows whether it's a model and we may not onto we do these kinds of disaggregated data to see who's a woman and man. so when consumers buying online, there is no difference. there's no where, where it says that he does a woman sterling or man. shelly. so now is a great opportunity for me to expand the access through e commerce. women can have as many online stores on jeannie as she wants because the big what it was replied set up a stall on junior is very little literally registering would have few inventories
8:25 pm
you can stop. so that if i could have been to that they can have as many accounts if they want today. are you doing anything to me or to encourage people say use female vendors ahead of mail vendors? no, we're not. we're not. it's not something that you could conceivably do. i don't think what we want to do. i don't think the be the objective of this survey, an objective or what we want to achieve is to disadvantage men as well. the whole idea is what the men are currently dealing with, all the resources that are available on that platform. we want to encourage women to do the same as well. and if it takes training, if it takes, having workshops with women, encouraging them showing them how to manage doing it. that's what we want to do. that's how we're going to achieve the gender priority. we're not trying to disadvantage one gender against the other. we're just trying to close the gap. okay . thank you. i'm henry, it's
8:26 pm
a co worker and just ask you briefly the pandemic has this made this problem with unanimous. the analysis. yes. where we've seen huge progress before, pandemic. in fact, in terms of women in some ways out competing men on platform, we've seen this decline very deeply. we've seen that not just an e commerce, the current, but media across all of the well tangled research and beyond. and there are couple of key reasons. one indeed, i briefly mentioned that care care with one's ability to increase, locked down and increase, decrease in mobility, additional increase in gender violence and sexual harassment online and offline because of the stress of the panoramic. and then of course, oftentimes we have seen that women entrepreneurs and not just looking for their kids, but they're also taking care of the parents. henry s a call from b international finance corporation and juliet and now much women of junior nigeria . thank you both for joining us on your business. thank you. thank you. now has
