G20 to Crack Down on Tax Avoidance

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 06 September 2013

Leaders at the G20 meeting in Russia promise to crack down on corporate tax avoidance, but will the plans make any difference, and should developing nations have more of a say on the new tax code? Pascal Saint Amans is head of tax control at the OECD and he tells us whether he is optimistic. Lego has overtaken Hasbro as the world's biggest toy-maker. We ask what it is they are doing right. The BBC's Business Editor, Robert Peston, understands there's a chance the pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline could be considering pulling out of China because of an ongoing bribery probe. We talk to the mayor of Colombia's capital city, Bogota, about his plans to attract investors, and World Business Report's Mark Whitaker is exploring India's hi-tech sector in Bangalore to see what kind of businesses lie at the heart of that success. We're also joined by Ralph Silva, business analyst from Toronto.
