and legacy the body in charge of delivering the World Cup says significant improvements in worker conditions have been made is the communications director I mean improving the conditions of four K it was always part of our vision even before we winning the right of the World Cup And what gotta have been done into the last ten years there is a lot of improvement that is happening Like for example introducing a new minimum wage in the region now workers can change actually their jobs and the easy actually to enter and exit the country So all of these stuff has been introduced I know that there is a still progress need to be happening but it's a journey One of the biggest legacy that we're going to be having for this World Cup is the social legacy of the improvement of conditions of the worker welfare which will continue even beyond the tournament itself That was fat mile noumi and in that report from a voldi Carol in Qatar You're listening to the BBC World Service This is news This is news are coming to you live from the BBC in London The Chinese authorities continue to try to prove what many believe to be the unprovable that the Chinese tennis star punctual is genuinely free to speak and act as she pleases The two time Grand Slam doubles champion had not been seen publicly since alleging early this month at a former vice president now in his 70s forced her intersects during an on off relationship spanning several years but following a global outcry including from tennis superstars western governments in the United Nations Chinese state media have been releasing a flurry of footage purporting to show that all is well with pung And now the international Olympic Committee says its president Thomas Bach has held a video call with punk Shui I also hadn't the BBC's Asia Pacific editor what we know about the conversation Well we only know what the IOC has told us in a relatively short statement We know the call was a 30 minutes long It was a video call Which I think is important It does show that there was some effort taken to show that it was punk shy herself speaking It wasn't just Thomas Bach the head of the IOC on the call with miss Pong There were two other IOC officials there One was an IOC official a woman named Emma turtle from Finland and liling way who is a longtime contact of miss Pong Amateur host said on the call that pun shy appeared to be relaxed that she assured them that she was all right but she called for privacy And apparently the IUC extended support to her and they even made plans for the group The four people on the call to meet for dinner Is that video recording of the call going to be made public I don't think so I'd be very very surprised My feeling is that the Chinese authorities are really hoping that the IOC is respectable enough that this will put the matter to rest Now whether that will be the matter to rest is another matter It still falls quite short of what the UN and the women's tennis association were calling for We still don't know whether she's under any duress whether her family has been threatened We simply don't know that However the UN and the women's intense association and others have also called for miss pung's case to be investigated by the authorities in a fully transparent way and there's been no mention of that Why is the IOC though being so reticent about an investigation Well I mean the IOC has a lot of skin in the game in this issue Simply because it's less than three months to the start of the Beijing Olympics the IOC is already contending for months years almost with calls for a diplomatic boycott of these Olympics on human rights grounds Well before Pong shre made her bombshell allegations of sexual abuse there were concerns long-standing concerns about the treatment of ethnic Uighurs in Xinjiang So the fact that Chinese authorities allowed the IOC to engage in a video call with punk tri Some might contend well the IOC is not a neutral player here And the Chinese authorities for their part hoping that this might possibly mark an end to all the speculation about punctual Perhaps However we have to remember that this has never happened before We've never seen an allegation of this kind from a very prominent person athlete against someone who really rose to the very very top of China's Communist Party China's Communist Party has 95 million members and John galli the former vice premier rose to that elite council of just 7 men who ruled China He has now retired but he is a very powerful man And so yes China will want to put this to rest but it's very difficult for them not to even allow miss Pong to have a trial or to acknowledge the fact that she made a very serious accusation That bizarre Pacific editor Celia Hatton A member of the Palestinian movement Hamas opened fire in Jerusalem's old city this morning killing Israeli and wounding three others before.

In his anniversary message, Mr Biden said, America's greatest strength was unity. The U. N Secretary General Antonio Guterres has urged donors to find a way to continue supporting Afghanistan. Despite the Taliban takeover. Many are now withholding funds, but Mr Qatada's warned of the country's possible decline into economic meltdown. Pakistan's national carrier.

BBC news. You're listening to the real story from the BBC World Service with me, Celia Hatton this week. We're looking at the challenges and opportunities facing Japan. I'm joined on the line by Seijiro Takeshita. He's a professor in the School of Management and information at the University of Shizuoka in Japan. Sarah Parsons, who runs the business consultancy East West Interface. And is a senior teaching fellow at so as the University of London police Cano, a professor of political science and the faculty of liberal arts at Sophia University in Tokyo. And by Roland Kelt. He's a Tokyo based writer, journalist and scholar and author of the Book Japan America, which explores Japan's pop culture clout. Well. Earlier, we discussed the political and social changes underway in the country. I want to take a closer look at Japan's economy. It's the third largest in the world after the US and China. Japan has a lot going for it a well educated workforce, superior infrastructure and dominant positions in several key global sectors, from cars to electronic. All this And yet economists still refer to Japan's lost decades, the period of economic gloom that's largely stretched from its real estate and stock market collapse in 1991. Through to now. Seijiro Takeshita. So the question is What's keeping the Japanese economy in the doldrums? If not exactly in the doldrums. Why isn't it doing better? Actually, I don't think it is indulge. Um, I think people are expecting the same type of growth that we had in the eighties, which is not the case because Japan is a mature economy are protected GPS well over $40,000 meeting that we have joined the team of mature economy. And if you look at, for example, the progress and things like, you know, process innovation, not necessary product side, but process innovation, which is basically innovating the product to a better uses for, you know, general public. Japan still has a very, very strong edge. Look around you, for example, I mean, the fact of the matter is is that you pass competitiveness have not weighing down. It's a different type of growth. It's a different type of strength that Japan is starting to reveal. And as we've been discussing, for example, you look at the demographics to Japan, which suggests certainly that we're not going to be growth prone, but much more looking at the quality side, the type of growth That we should be looking at me. Would you agree with that sentiment? How much has Japan's economy diversified since the eighties if at all? Right, Right. I agree in the sense that you know, I mean, the idea that we can relive the shore error in the 19 eighties on the bubble economy or the fast growth period before that, for much of the 19 sixties and beyond, is unrealistic. But at the same time, I also Get a sense that there are a lot of people who feel that Japan is underperforming, in part because of the contrast with the fastest growing economies among got neighbors. Asian neighbours China, obviously, but also South Korea or Singapore and Japan seems to be sort of fading in the background, In contrast in terms of perception The other thing is, I think it's also to do with the growing gap or, you know more than the growing gap. But I guess the fact of the matter is that Japan is no longer the military in society. The younger generation of people are feeling that kind of growth of their parents experienced and all forthcoming. Sarah also mentioned earlier the poverty that is getting worse among the women child poverty. E. Japan is among the worst in the country's single parent household, obviously and so I guess there is this sense that Japan used to be a more one nation, but it no longer is and the government is not coming up with the policies that sufficiently go against that sense of unfairness that is perhaps increasingly pervading the society. So what modernizations are needed in Japan's economy, Roland cults. I wonder if we can focus On the facts machine for a moment and Japan's love affair with the fax machine When a Cabinet task force asked Japan's government bureaucracy to explain that continued dependence on the fax machine, 400 departments submitted spirited arguments in favor of its continued use. Why does Japan love the fax machine? Is this a good example to illustrate this lack of innovation in the economy? Well again. That's a complicated question, because on the one hand yes, obviously, a fax machine is very low tech. It's dated, Um it's dealing with paper and print and things that we've all moved on from. On the other hand. There is an argument in Japan and then one. I respect very much about concern for privacy. And if you have something on paper and you fax it, you have more security. And that is, I think a key point because it's also one of the reasons people ask me this a lot. Why E money. Electronic money has not so far taken off in Japan, and why so many people in my neighborhood in Tokyo pay for everything in cash myself included. And part of that is because Japanese people just don't want to be traced. They don't want to have their every expenditure recorded in a database. And I do respect that. So I think it's not exclusively low tech failings in Japan, but I would say to the one of those points that the domestically the Japanese Economy in many respects has shown great sustainability. I mean, just before the pandemic, the unemployment rate was, I think the lowest expense since 1974 the crime rate is extremely low. You don't have the kind of gun violence street crime that you have in the United States, for example. Incredibly efficient public services, Whether it's.

Back then, the BBC's John Simpson covered the fall of the Taliban. Here's his analysis on the U. S war on terror.

Iraq to show that America still had the strength that it always had had that it could take on any nation on Earth and beat them.

I agree in the sense that you know, I mean, the idea that we can relive the shore error in the 19 eighties on the bubble economy or the fast growth period before that, for much of the 19 sixties and beyond, is unrealistic. But at the same time, I also Get a sense that there are a lot of people who feel that Japan is underperforming, in part because of the contrast with the faster growing economies among got neighbors. Asian neighbours China, obviously, but also South Korea or Singapore and Japan seems to be sort of fading in the background, In contrast in terms of perception The other thing is, I think it's also to do with the growing gap or, you know more than the growing gap. But I guess the fact of the matter is that Japan is no longer the military in society. The younger generation of people are feeling that kind of growth of their parents experienced and of forthcoming. Sarah also mentioned earlier the poverty that is getting worse among the women. Childhood at the Japan is among the worst in the country's, uh, single parent household, obviously, and so I guess there is this sense that Japan used to be a more one nation, but it no longer is and the government is not coming up with the policies that sufficiently go against that sense of unfairness that is perhaps increasingly pervading the society so What modernizations are needed in Japan's economy, Roland counts I wonder if we can focus on the facts machine for a moment in Japan's love affair with the fax machine when a Cabinet task force asked Japan's government bureaucracy To explain that continued dependence on the fax machine. 400 departments submitted spirited arguments in favor of its continued use. Why does Japan love the fax machine? Is this a good example to illustrate this lack of innovation in the economy? Well again. That's a complicated question, because on the one hand yes, obviously, a fax machine is very low tech. It's dated, Um it's dealing with paper and print and things that we've all moved on from. On the other hand. There is an argument in Japan and then one I respect very much about Concern for privacy. And if you have something on paper and you fax it, you have more security. And that is, I think a key point because it's also one of the reasons people ask me this a lot. Why E money. Electronic money has not so far taken off in Japan, and why so many people In my neighborhood in Tokyo pay for everything in cash myself included, and part of that is because Japanese people just don't want to be traced. They don't want to have their every expenditure recorded in a database. And I do respect that. So I think it's not exclusively low tech failings in Japan, but I would say to the one of those points that the domestically the Japanese Economy in many respects has shown great sustainability. I mean, just before the pandemic, the unemployment rate was, I think the lowest expense since 1974 the crime rate is extremely low. You don't have the kind of gun violence street crime that you have. In the United States, for example, incredibly efficient public services, whether it's transport or package delivery, etcetera. I mean, you actually get used to these things in Japan, and then when you leave Japan, you're astonished at how inefficient much of the world can be. So there is a great deal of sustainable strength. I think in Japan's economy what I find frustrating having lived there now for 20/20 years as a journalist I've met so many mostly young people who are innovative, great ideas, particularly in the I. T industry who have tried to start independent companies tried to go the startup route. And have just been squashed by Japan's corporate machine. And that to me is a great shame because Japan is very underrepresented in it, And that's not the fault of young, talented, visionary Japanese. Mm In the first half of the program. We spoke about the lack of participation of women in political life. What explains the absence of women at a senior level in business and what can be done to fix this?

"Editorial control off broadcast. Let's talk to our Asia Pacific editor Celia Hatton silly. What was the problem? Well, the central issue, James is that the close there's a very close connection between C G T N and China's ruling Communist Party. Now Star media, which was the entity that actually held the license in the UK for CG, TN couldn't prove that it had editorial control over the content of CG. Tien was broadcasting. And C G T and itself didn't even really attempt to prove that it doesn't connected with the Communist Party and so in the UK it's illegal for broadcasters to be run by political parties, and that's why the license has been revoked. Will this be seen by the Chinese Communist Party? Do you think, huh? Well, we knew this decision was probably coming in some form off calm, has already been looking at multiple complaints about CG Tien's broadcasting. It upheld earlier complaints that had already promised sanctions so things weren't looking good for CG TN. To begin with, But at the moment, I think CG Tien has two options. Some are predicting a backlash orchestrated by Beijing against UK Media Bureau's inside China journalists, British journalists working inside China, especially the BBC, it should be said the BBC isn't State control, but it is publicly funded, But Beijing doesn't really distinguish between the two. So even though it's already quite difficult for BBC journalists and other British journalists toe work in China, it's expected to get a lot Tougher. Um, although in the long term, though, is C G T and wants to think about its long term options. If it wants to be truly a global network.
