PetroCaribe A Lifeline For Struggling Caribbean Countries – PM

first_imgRelatedBolivar’s ‘Jamaica Letter’ Has Strengthened Relations Between Jamaica and Venezuela Advertisements PetroCaribe A Lifeline For Struggling Caribbean Countries – PM Foreign AffairsSeptember 6, 2015Written by: Sharon Earle Prime Minister, the Most Hon Portia Simpson Miller, has underscored the significant impact the PetroCaribe Agreement has had on the economic independence of countries of the Caribbean region.In a statement at the plenary session of the 10th Anniversary Commemorative Summit of the PetroCaribe Agreement in Montego on Saturday (September 5), Mrs. Simpson Miller hailed the pact as a lifeline for many of the region’s struggling economies and peoples.She said the Summit marks another opportunity for Latin American and Caribbean countries to jointly recognize the achievements and the importance of the accord, which has significantly helped to fortify regional economies, meet many of the social and economic development needs of the people of the region, and build strong relationships.“Since that historic signing, the region has seen significant benefits and increased development in many areas. Additionally, PetroCaribe has engendered a sense of independence in our region,” Prime Minister Simpson Miller stated.The PetroCaribe Energy Co-operation Agreement, formally established on June 29, 2005, is an oil alliance between Venezuela and 16 other Caribbean and Central American nations, including 15 CARICOM member states, Haiti, and Honduras, to purchase oil on preferential payment conditions.This facility allows for oil to be purchased up front at between five and 50 per cent of market value, with a grace period of one to two years to commence making the remaining payments.The Prime Minister contended that without the arrangement, some of the most vulnerable countries in the region would have succumbed to the global economic crisis in 2008 as well as subsequent challenges.“It has made major contributions to improving the socio-economic development of states through investments totalling just under US$4 billion in 432 social projects to foster improvements in the standard of living of our peoples,” she said.In Jamaica, she pointed out, investments have been made in improving the country’s road, air and seaport infrastructure; financing of micro, small and medium enterprises; and production expansion.She said that clinker from Jamaica is being exported to Venezuela under the trade compensation mechanism of the agreement.The Prime Minister said the 10th Anniversary Summit underscores the fact that PetroCaribe has a future in the energy security and socio-economic development of Jamaica and other countries of the region.For his part, President of Venezuela, His Excellency Nicolas Maduro, said in evaluating the 10 years since the signing of the agreement, there is proof that the pact has contributed to the economic, social and political stability and security of the Caribbean and Latin America.He noted that events unfolding in regions of Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Mid-east, shows that the Caribbean and Latin American region is comparatively stable and this, he suggested, is due in part, to the impact of the PetroCaribe Agreement.President Maduro said he came to Jamaica directly from Qatar and China where he had discussions on how to get a better price for oil for countries.Nineteen CARICOM and Latin American countries were represented at the Summit, which coincided with the 200th anniversary of Venezuelan Revolutionary Leader, Simón Bolivar’s ‘Carta de Jamaica’, or Letter of Jamaica, and 50 years of diplomatic relations between Jamaica and Venezuela.

The essence of tourism in Istria – so simple, and so ingenious

first_imgFor the 11th year in a row, the Tourist Board of the City of Pula and the Tourist Board of the Municipality of Fažana have been organizing the summer fair of Istrian souvenirs – Istrian hand made. At the Summer Fair of Craftsmen every week from 15.6.-15.9. artisans will exhibit, sell and produce souvenirs and handicrafts; on Mondays and Tuesdays in Pula, on Wednesdays in Fažana. The working hours of the fair are from 15.6-31.8. from 20-23, and from 1.9.-15.9. from 19-22 hours. 2016 craftsmen will participate in the Istrian hand made fair in 14, and the goal of the event is to enrich the tourist offer of the city and provide tourists with the opportunity to buy handicrafts and indigenous souvenirs.Istra mix, ie the Fair of Istrian gourmet products and souvenirs – Istrian hand made and Istra gourmet, will also be held from 15.06. to 15.09. for the 7th year in a row in Fažana and the 2nd year from 07.07. to 25.08. in Ližnjan. In Fažana, where the event will be held on Wednesday, in addition to souvenir producers), producers of gourmet products participate, while in Ližnjan the event is held every Thursday from 20 to 23 hoursThe interesting thing about this event is that some items are made directly in front of tourists. All exhibitors have T-shirts and bags with the Istrian hand made logo to make the event recognizable. Could this tourist story be better?Kudos to the Tourist Boards of Pula and Fažana, that is what our tourism lacks. This is the foundation of a tourist destination development – respect yourself and you will respect others. Tourists want to get to know, feel, taste indigenous local products, even if you tell them a story that’s it – the essence of tourism. This must be the foundation of tourism of all tourist destinations, and the rest is an upgrade. The Germans don’t want to try German sausages, but our homemade ones. And if they like it, they will buy it and take it home where, in the company of their friends, they will spread the story of a great vacation and taste our home-made and indigenous sausage. Sausage is just a metaphor, we have to sell ourselves, our culture, gastronomy, history and identity. This is what tourists want to experience. This tourist story is so simple, and yet so ingenious. It should be the standard story of each of our tourist destinations.We must finally understand that tourism is not the sun and the sea, and that our greatest advantage is precisely this diversity through history, gastronomy, music, culture, customs and everything else. We have thousands of different indigenous stories, we just have to be who we are and tell those stories. Let us be what we are because tourists want to see, experience and taste just that. We do not need a new big idea of ​​our tourism, but finally we have to be and sell what we are – Istrians, Dalmatians, Slavonians, Međimurje, Zagorje, Ličani…. Croats. Let’s be what we are – indigenous, authentic and credible! That is the story we have to tellTourism consists of emotions, experiences and stories. Tell stories.last_img read more

Operation at Hanjin Incheon Container Terminal Kicks Off

first_imgHanjin Incheon Container Terminal (HJIT), the second container terminal of Incheon New Port in Korea has opened today, 18th March 2016 with the arrival of Hanjin Mexico containership, Incheon Port Authority announced.The Hanjin Mexico, which is the first-calling-vessel at HIJT, sails on the weekly Korea-Philippines-Indonesia service which covers Korea (IncheonㆍBusan), China, Singapore, and Indonesia starting from Manila in the Philippines.According to Yoo Chang Keun, president of IPA, the opening of Hanjin Incheon Container Terminal represents a new beginning for the Incheon New Port, adding that the new terminal will help the port achieve their annual target of 2.5M TEU.Up to now, HJIT has opened 4 routes connecting China and Southeast Asia. The terminal is equipped with five rail mounted quayside cranes which can handle 22 container rows, container terminal yard of 7 rows, and fourteen automated rail mount gantry cranes which enable handling of 5-tiered and 9 rows.The new terminal has allowed the port to handle large container vessels loading 12,000TEU.Before construction of Incheon New Port, Incheon Port used to be ranked the 60th in the world accommodating maximum 4,000 TEU class vessels. However,  IPA has an ambitious plan to accomplish 4.5M TEU container handling volume in 2025 and to jump up to the 30th port in the world by boosting Incheon New Port’s capacity.last_img read more

Changing City business models

first_imgMost people would stop short of calling a $10,000 (£6,300) bonus for a one-year-qualified London-based lawyer at a US-headquartered firm a crisis. Indeed, that particular statistic is a modest improvement on 2011. But consider this. In 2007, the bonus at that same firm for a one-year-qualified would have been over $30,000. That is just one small indicator of how a quarter-century of ever-upward growth at the major commercial law firms has been compromised.These figures, from an annual salary and bonus survey by City-based recruiters Edwards Gibson, accompany other data that point to a freeze in London salaries that track US rates. And analysis last year by Royal Bank of Scotland concluded that UK commercial firms were over-lawyered by up to 5%.Hidden positionAs individuals, lawyers in City firms may see their rewards progress upwards – lockstep and merit-based rewards keeping in reasonably close alignment. But the general picture is cause for reflection on the standard business model that firms have employed. As Tony Williams, principal at Jomati Consultants, puts it: ‘A system we all knew and liked delivered above-inflation growth for 25 years – and even with blips, that trajectory was always resumed.’ Notwithstanding the restructuring that took place at many firms in 2009 and 2010, ‘firms haven’t really stood back and asked questions about how [they] deliver what the client wants’, says Williams.According to one analysis, law firms have been reprieved in this regard only because corporate clients are not acting uniformly to adjust their demands on firms’ pricing and resourcing models. However, Williams counsels that the legal sector must not be slow to look at lessons from other sectors: ‘As customers, a manufacturer buying components, or a supermarket buying groceries, demands that costs go down year on year – even though the quality of what’s provided to them may have increased and the supplier also has to invest in innovating new and improved products.’He may not yet be in the majority, but as a corporate client, Bruce Macmillan, senior vice-president, senior commercial legal counsel at Visa Europe, applies this thinking to the purchase of legal services. Putting it bluntly, as a starting point he wants to know the lowest level of competence at which legal work can be done. ‘Show me what features define competent performance in your areas of expertise and then show me what you offer over and above competence,’ he urges. ‘Then I can decide whether to pay extra for your additional service quality features, beyond what I need to pay anyone for competent performance.’What the legal profession tends to do, he says, is to blur those distinctions. But in an increasingly commoditised legal services market, ‘this failure to show that the value you add supports your prices, merely offers opportunities for new players to make you look too expensive’.Shape changersFor clients such as Macmillan, being able to ‘disaggregate’ legal advice in this way pushes legal needs both up and down the traditional City ‘pyramid’ – in cost terms at least. Hence a range of business realignment decisions made by leading commercial firms that have involved farming out ‘non-added value’ work.In April 2011, Herbert Smith Freehills opened a Belfast office, specialising in document management and review, principally for major contentious cases. The Belfast office is partly about process – ‘a highly structured approach to document management and review’ – but also about ‘competitive pricing’, using Belfast’s lower cost base. Just behind was Allen & Overy, opening its ‘Support Services Centre’ in July 2011. Styled by managing partner Wim Dejonghe as the firm’s ‘near-shore support and legal services centre’, the facility enables A&O to ‘serve clients more flexibly, handling the high-value work for them and holding on to work that might otherwise have gone to lower-cost rivals’. The centre kicked off 2013 by adding another 67 staff.In 2000 Baker & McKenzie began the process of moving ‘back office’ tasks to Global Services Manila (GSM). And while arrangements such as the Hogan Lovells’ ‘Mexican Wave’ have been in operation for a while, non-City firms report that such pairings with City firms to keep costs down are becoming more common.Such moves have captured headlines in the business and legal press, but Williams believes this is just the start. ‘Firms are starting to ask, “do we need all of our staff all of the time?”,’ he says. ‘If the flow of M&A work is lumpy – perhaps a firm only needs to retain people to do 85% of the work, knowing that it has ways of calling in extra resource.’ Firms are being ‘experimental’ at the moment, he adds, but more far-reaching decisions will follow as their confidence in new working models increases.Staffing and salary figures for this market indicate that reform of working practices is indeed imperative. The Edwards Gibson research discloses below-inflation salary rises for assistants at UK-headquartered firms for the fourth year running, with a fifth year predicted for 2013. And the bottom of the firm ‘pyramid’ is on some counts narrowing – turning the pyramid into more of a diamond at some practices. Edwards Gibson partner Scott Gibson notes: ‘There was almost no external newly qualified market for August and September qualifiers. It appeared that many firms had fewer lawyers qualifying, on account of a reduction in trainee places being offered. This is likely indicative of a continued overall reduction in lawyers at the newly-qualified level in commercial law firms.’ To make matters worse, there was also an increase in redundancies at the PQE seven-and-over level in larger City and magic circle firms.These findings would seem to support the arguments made by US lawyer-economist Michael Trotter in his provocative book Declining Prospects: how extraordinary competition and compensation are changing America’s major law firms. He believes the very largest corporate law firms are wedded to an unsustainable business model that is designed around support for the massive overheads such firms have acquired. Though his arguments are based on the New York legal market, the parallels are clear. This model, he argues, embodies inaccurate assumptions about a close link between the highly leveraged legal teams and profitability. ‘There is no correlation between the size or leverage of the top 200 US firms and their average profits per partner,’ Trotter concludes.According to this argument, what huge, highly leveraged teams on top pay have created is a system where the most experienced lawyers are effectively focused on management, and on the marketing that will win the lucrative instructions that can support those teams and their rewards. Targets for billable hours are now so high that they have contributed to poor career satisfaction for lawyers working to them.The rewards themselves are a problem, Trotter concludes. As incentives, they have attracted an oversupply of firms and lawyers working to the New York model. Current market conditions cannot support such oversupply, rendering the model at best unstable, he contends. The result has been dramatic law firm failures like the collapse of Dewey & LeBoeuf last year. Dewey, Trotter claims, ‘was caught short by fundamental changes in the dynamics and economics of the top end of the legal profession’.Solid or declining?The top-252012 was ‘another tough year’ for the upper quartile, the PwC Law Firms Survey concluded. Although 82% of firms who took part had increased fee income in the previous year, mergers and lateral hires were part of the explanation. That figure could not reflect ‘absolute growth’, it stressed.‘Firms remain a long way short of performance levels at the peak of the market back in 2008,’ the report found. In real terms, average top-10 UK fees per partner fell 22% between 2008 and 2012, while profits per equity partner dipped 24% – even though there has also been a 6% fall in equity partners in that time.Firms in the top-11-25 experienced an even greater drop in PEP – 31% on 2008 figures in real terms, even though equity partner headcount was down 20% over the same period.PwC did however strive to be positive: ‘Against a difficult backdrop, 2012 can be characterised as a solid year in the legal sector.’Source: PwCFalling down?Trotter notes there is ‘client resistance to increasing costs’. Certainly, commercial firms confirm to the Gazette that the dire state of the economy has led clients to be more demanding in service negotiations – and this in turn has prompted law firms to be more creative. ‘Clients have become more aggressive on price,’ the managing partner of one top-20 firm tells the Gazette, ‘and many take a much more direct interest in how deals are staffed’.The same managing partner notes the consensus that ‘there are too many lawyers in London – but at all levels’. That view is supported by PwC’s annual law firm survey for 2012. ‘Firms remain a long way short of performance levels at the peak of the market back in 2008,’ the survey report notes. ‘In real terms, average top 10 UK fees per partner have fallen 22% over that period… and average PEP is down 24%.’ There has been a 20% reduction in equity partner headcount since 2008.Squeezed middleAssistants see salaries and bonuses fallWhile non-partners continue to see their salaries increase year on year, that is in large part down to their progress up their law firm’s lockstep, according to recruitment consultancy Edwards Gibson’s annual survey, published this month.That reality masks a fall in real-terms rewards at each level. For the fourth year running, this research showed below-inflation salary rises for assistants at UK-headquartered firms. In those same firms at each level, there was also a fall in bonuses for the second year running.The news was better for US-headquartered law firms in London, where bonuses increased by more than a third on 2011 – averaging between $10,000 for a one-year PQE lawyer, and $50,000 for a seven-year PQE.However, bonuses at these same firms were over $30,000 and $60,000 in 2007.Source: Edwards GibsonSo why the continuing mismatch between numbers and demand? Some Gazette interviewees who preferred not to be identified described the sense of ‘obligation’ to try and take on lawyers who have trained with them. Others allude to their experience of rebuilding teams at great expense, having cut too far and too fast in previous downturns. In other cases, firms are bidding low for work, knowing that although they are simply ‘buying turnover’, it is at least keeping teams together.It should be re-emphasised that clients who have disaggregated each part of their instructions to make decisions about the precise resourcing of each component part are in a minority. ‘There isn’t an across-the-board rejection of very junior lawyers being used on matters,’ one international senior partner contacted by the Gazette notes. ‘If it is reflected in the bill, they may want to know why you brought three lawyers to a meeting where one would have done, but their demands are mostly at the levels of seeing greater efficiencies reflected in price, and wanting the certainty of fixed or predictable pricing.’ It is, the managing partner notes, more pertinently a case of law firms themselves driving the disaggregation of services in response to pressure on fee margins.Williams advises firms to get used to the idea that, in all other areas of activity, the corporates that instruct leading commercial law firms look for further efficiencies year on year. But there will always, he says, be ‘bet the company’ matters where the outcome, not the fees, is the priority for the client. ‘If there is going to be a significant impact on the share price, if a regulator may fine you hundreds of millions, if the executives could go to jail – then that remains at the high-value end,’ he stresses.For work that does not fit into that category, however – not a £500m merger, but an acquisition worth £50m, for example – the pressures are real and growing. One possibility is that firms who do not start to respond to such challenges will find clients looking to do the work themselves. As Gibson concludes: ‘In the latest figures available, there was a 12% increase in the number of solicitors with practising certificates working in commercial roles in-house – it is clear that in-house constitutes the greatest ongoing competition to law firms for legal talent.’last_img read more

Crystal Palace need to increase offer by €5m to sign target,…

first_imgYesterday the central midfielder was linked with a move to Crystal Palace after Turkey’s Star reported the Premier League side had offered €12m.According to Takvim, both clubs are still in discussions, and Fenerbahce are demanding €18m from Crystal Palace. However, the Eagles are only prepared to increase their offer to €13m.Despite his initial stance over the player staying in Istanbul, Takvim say Fenerbahce manager Phillip Cocu has given the green light to transfer Souza because the Turkish club need to sell some players to balance the books.Souza was linked with a move to West Bromwich Albion last summer but the Baggies pulled out of a deal at the last minute. The player has also been linked with a move to Watford in recent weeks and they could provide competition to Crystal Palace.The Brazilian’s contract will expire at the end of next season and Fenerbahce’s board have growing reasons to sell.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameDon’t Play This Game, it’s Addictive.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoPremier Diamond BoutiqueHong Kong’s first lab-grown diamond empirePremier Diamond BoutiqueUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoInstant Voice TranslatorGenius Japanese Invention Allows You To Instantly Speak 43 LanguagesInstant Voice TranslatorUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

“Let’s see if he’ll succeed” – Coach shares opinion on player’s…

first_imgBesides having the Portuguese and the English media both reporting the transfer to Tottenham Hotspur, Benfica manager Bruno Lage revealed the midfielder hasn’t trained with the Eagles today.Now as the Lisbon press analyses the transfer, Radio Renascença have invited former Benfica player and coach Álvaro Magalhães to give his opinion on the move.“I think it’s good for him. He has the possibility of going to a big club,” Álvaro Magalhães told Rádio Renascença. “Bruno Lage has given Gedson several opportunities to play and we can say that he has shown all his quality. Now, being less used, it’s obvious that he wants to play.“Tottenham are a club with great players and if you go there, you will have to fight for a place, but there’s no doubt that he’s a young man who has quality and I hope he’ll be happy if he leaves Benfica, and look for space in a football with another mindset. Let’s see if he’ll succeed.”Embed from Getty ImagesGedson Fernandes is expected to join Tottenham Hotspur on a loan deal until the summer of 2021, with Spurs having an option to buy him.The midfielder has only two league starts for Benfica this season, and that’s why the transfer to a big Premier League side has come as a surprise for many of the Lisbon club’s fans.For the Eagles, it makes a lot of sense to loan him out now, since he wasn’t getting enough minutes with their side, and could either return with more experience or leave a big chunk of money in the back account.Now it’s up to him to show Tottenham he’s worth it.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?
