S.Africa’s President Ramaphosa urges G7 nations to plug COVID-19 funding gap

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson and South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa attend a bilateral meeting during G7 summit in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, Britain, June 13, 2021. Stefan Rousseau/Pool via REUTERSSouth African President Cyril Ramaphosa has urged the Group of Seven countries to help finance the World Health Organization’s programme to boost COVID-19 testing, diagnostics and vaccines, the presidency said on Sunday. The World Health Organization’s ACT Accelerator programme for global COVID-19 treatments aims to fast-track production and ensure equitable access to tests, treatments, and vaccines in the fight against COVID-19. "If all G7 countries met their fair share target, this initiative would be two-thirds funded – and it would be 90% funded if all G20 countries made their fair share contributions," Ramaphosa said. Ramaphosa also urged G7 members to support the TRIPS waiver on patents for COVID-19 vaccines and engage in negotiations that could help boost vaccine production.

Analysis: G7 global tax plan may hit corporate titans unevenly
  + stars: | 2021-06-10 | by ( Tom Bergin | ) + 0.00   time to read: +7 min
Four tax specialists concurred with Reuters’ methodology but noted that there is still uncertainty about how the measures would be applied, including which tax breaks are included in the 15% minimum overseas tax. Applying the same methodology to J&J, and its 2020 global profits of $16.5 billion, the healthcare company would see its global tax bill rise by about $270 million as a result of the first measure. Also at issue is which country the profit is moved from and to - and therefore what the increase in tax rate is. Excluding the impact of the first proposed measure, increasing the tax rate on overseas income to 15% would mean $45 million of additional tax. Applying a 15% tax rate to that overseas income figure would result in $990 million in additional taxes, according to Reuters’ calculations.

Anti-poverty groups criticise rich countries over G7 tax deal

Stefan Rousseau/PA Wire/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoAnti-poverty campaigners on Monday criticised a deal reached by seven wealthy countries to impose a minimum tax on multinational companies, saying it would benefit rich nations at the expense of the poor. "The G7 is a small club of rich and powerful countries," said Tove Ryding of Eurodad. Christian Hallum, a tax expert with Oxfam, said: "It is definitely skewed to the rich and unfair on the poor." He said a country hosting a company's headquarters had more clout in the scheme, adding: "This will see a massive transfer of money to rich countries." The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, which helped drive wider tax reform, denied the deal would unfairly benefit the United States.

The gathering will put Biden's "America is back" motto to the test, with allies disillusioned during the Trump years looking for tangible, lasting action. These are the recent ransomware attack on JBS (JBSS3.SA), the world's largest meatpacker, by a criminal group likely based in Russia. On Russia, Stoltenberg said, "we agree on the dual-track approach, meaning deterrence, defense and dialogue with Russia." Sullivan said Biden will stress the importance of NATO countries' burden-sharing and the need for allies to contribute to alliance exercises and operations. Sullivan said Biden spoke with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Monday and reassured him that he would defend Ukraine's sovereignty in his talks with Putin.

"That global minimum tax would end the race-to-the-bottom in corporate taxation, and ensure fairness for the middle class and working people in the U.S. and around the world.

"We want the international tax reform process to succeed and recognize this could mean Facebook paying more tax, and in different places." CAMPAIGN GROUP OXFAM"It's absurd for the G7 to claim it is 'overhauling a broken global tax system' by setting up a global minimum corporate tax rate that is similar to the soft rates charged by tax havens like Ireland, Switzerland and Singapore.

WHY A GLOBAL MINIMUM TAX? The Trump administration took a first stab with a U.S. corporate offshore minimum tax in 2017. The “Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income,” or GILTI, tax rate was only 10.5% - half the domestic corporate tax rate. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has been coordinating tax negotiations among 140 countries for years on rules for taxing cross-border digital services and curbing tax base erosion, including a global corporate minimum tax. The global minimum tax rate would apply to overseas profits.

British finance minister Rishi Sunak, who is chairing the talks, also wants large companies to be required to declare their environmental impact in a consistent way. “Their business model gives them chances to avoid taxes ... much more than other companies,” German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said. The U.S. has proposed levying the new global minimum tax only on the world’s 100 largest and most profitable companies.

Stefan Rousseau/PA Wire/Pool via REUTERSBritain's Health Secretary Matt Hancock said on Friday vaccinating children in the United Kingdom against COVID-19 would take priority over donating vaccine doses to other countries around the world. "My first duty as health secretary for the UK is to make sure that the UK is protected and safe, and whilst thankfully children are very rarely badly affected by COVID themselves, they can still pass on the disease," Hancock said after a meeting of G7 healthcare ministers in Oxford, central England. "Alongside that I'm working with my international colleagues to make sure that people can get access to the vaccine around the world, and in particular of course the Oxford vaccine." One topic of contention is U.S. President Joe Biden's support for a vaccine patent waiver to boost vaccine production and allow more equitable distribution.

Boris Johnson has told friends that he is experiencing serious money problems. "One of the first things I was told by someone else when I arrived there is that he will ask you to lend him money," Purnell says. His reputation for failing to pay money back even extended to one wary EU official quoted in Purnell's biography of Johnson. "You were always wary," the official told Purnell. "All of these stories saying he is hard up is a bit like putting the begging bowl out," Purnell told Insider.

"We're fighting very hard in Hartlepool, it is very important to us, it's tough, we've got to earn every vote," Starmer told BBC television, adding that during his three visits he found most voters were worried about jobs in the future.

Yet, even as politicians and business leaders publicly acknowledge the necessity of transitioning to a low-carbon society, hopes of limiting global warming — and meeting a crucial global target — are quickly deteriorating. These policies typically "rely heavily on unproven and potentially very hazardous carbon removal strategies to make that carbon dioxide magically disappear." The burning of fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal releases large amounts of carbon dioxide into the air. The IPCC has found that emissions from fossil fuels and industry are the dominant cause of global heating, accounting for 89% of global CO2 emissions in 2018. The U.S. Energy Information Administration has said it expects global carbon dioxide emissions from energy-related sources to continue to grow in the coming decades.

LONDON — British front-line workers who were applauded on doorsteps in the early weeks of the pandemic now confront a torrent of polarization and misinformation. Doctors, teachers and other exhausted workers say they are feeling incredibly demoralized after reading social media posts insisting Covid-19 is a hoax or overblown. Conspiracy theories are far from new here, and Britain has grappled with coronavirus-related misinformation since the start of the pandemic. Russell Sears says he has considered moving abroad, partly because of the misinformation that's becoming rife in Britain. These favorable transatlantic comparisons are little comfort to front-line British workers.

The government says in less than two years it has agreed trade deals with 53 countries, accounting for 164 billion pounds of British bilateral trade.
