Morocco Thwarts Polisario and Algerias Attacks in the European Parliament

first_imgBy Louise RiondelBordeaux, France – The European Parliament adopted the initial report on the situation of Human Rights in the Sahara prepared by the British Conservative MP Charles Tannock on Tuesday. The text was a real indictment against Morocco, but the Kingdom’s diplomacy foiled the accusations of his opponents and won another victory today. The European Parliament congratulated Morocco for its progress and all amendments against the Kingdom were rejected, including that concerning the fishing agreement between Morocco and the European Union.The report mentions that “a large number of stakeholders, including the Government of Morocco, Moroccan NGOs, and former residents of the Tindouf camps, said that the Polisario authorities limited the residents’ freedom of expression and freedom of movement”, and recognizes the involvement of Algeria in the conflict and its protection of the Polisario.In a statement from the headquarters of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, Abderrahim Atmoun, Persident of the Parliamentary Committee of the EU-Morocco announced that the Moroccan diplomacy has managed to remove the “elements claiming falsely that the resources of the southern provinces did not benefit the people . “The report called on Algeria to facilitate the identification of people in the Saharawi refugee camps controlled by the Polisario. In addition, it urges “Algerian authorities to assume their responsibilities for improving the situation of human rights in the Tindouf camps.”The President of the EU- Morocco Friendship Group, Gilles Pargneaux said that “the Parliament should strengthen its relations with those who make more efforts to promote democracy. ““Do not forget that Morocco is the only country to have conducted a real development policy in the Saharan region, to have developed a respectable rule of law as the vector of terrorism and yet , some MEPs forget what the Kingdom of Morocco has accomplished,” he added.last_img read more

Discussion held in Sri Lanka on preventing violent extremism

In his opening speech, Speaker Karu Jayasuriya, stated, “The theme of this meeting is the most relevant and opportune topic to be discussed at any forum in the context of the violence and mayhem that is being unleashed each day in all parts of the world. Violent extremism is nurtured by many underlying causes such as the lack of economic opportunity, education, the alienation of youth and discrimination on ethnic, religious and political grounds among others.”“Empowered youth are the engine of the progress we all seek. Through our work, we are continuously reminded that young people today are more connected, more creative, more informed and more persuasive than any previous generation. They must be included in any holistic approach that seeks to prevent violent extremism,” said UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative, Sri Lanka, Una McCauley.According to UNDP’s Asia-Pacific Regional Human Development Report published last year, more than half of the world’s young people today live in Asia, and over a billion people in the region are below the age of 25. During the two days, young MPs will collaborate with global experts and key civil society actors in developing strategies that engage their peers on the role parliaments and political participation can play in addressing violent extremism.The opening session was attended by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Speaker Karu Jayasuriya, President of the Inter-Parliamentary Union Saber Chowdhury and UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative, Sri Lanka Ms. Una McCauley. The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), the Parliament of Sri Lanka, and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have jointly convened a Regional Meeting of Young Parliamentarians of the Asia-Pacific region to engage on PVE. Taking place on 25 and 26 April, the meeting brings together young parliamentarians, specialists, private sector representatives and youth advocates to promote youth participation in parliaments. “Young people must be firmly part of formal political processes to effectively contribute to preventing violent extremism. Increasing youth participation in parliaments and the number of young MPs is both a way to harness the talents of youth to address extremism and its socio-economic drivers, and also an antidote to combat youth marginalization that leads to radicalisation,” said IPU President Saber Chowdhury.The IPU report on Youth participation in national parliaments 2016, revealed that roughly one per cent of parliamentarians in the region were under 30 years of age. Globally, less than two per cent of the world’s parliamentarians are aged below 30.The UN’s Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism, adopted in December 2015, acknowledges that “we will not be successful unless we can harness the idealism, creativity and energy of young people and others who feel disenfranchised”. (Colombo Gazette) More than 50 young parliamentarians from Asia-Pacific countries gathered in Sri Lanka today to discuss their role in advancing inclusive and peaceful societies and preventing violent extremism in the region.In recent years, the world has witnessed new waves of violent extremism that have threatened the security and stability of societies across the world. This is a growing concern for the security of the Asia-Pacific region. Parliaments are among the key institutions that can play an effective role in preventing violent extremism (PVE). In addition to ratifying and facilitating implementation of international conventions and resolutions, parliaments also deliberate on and adopt laws that provide the framework for national policies. Young parliamentarians, as representatives closest to a country’s youth, have a particularly crucial role to play. Young Asians, however, see few opportunities to participate in political institutions, including parliaments. read more

Nickel production worldwide forecast to rise marginally

first_imgGlobal nickel consumption is forecast to increase to around 1.3 Mt in calendar 2010, reflecting an expected rapid recovery in consumption in Asia and forecast moderate growth in Europe and North and South America, according to market analyst group Intierra. Addressing the Paydirt 2010 Australian Nickel Conference in Perth, Intierra Resource Intelligence’s Commercial Director, Gregory Kay, said the modest 2010 growth outlook, compared to the 2009 result when world nickel consumption declined by an estimated 8% to 1.2 Mt.“However, as a result of significant increases in nickel prices between mid-2003 and mid-2007, a number of stainless steel producers substituted other less expensive input materials such as manganese for nickel,” Kay said. Despite a significant decline in nickel prices, many stainless steel producers have not yet switched back to nickel in stainless steel production.“If this trend continues in the short term, it could limit any significant nickel demand growth, particularly in OECD economies.” Hesaid nickel consumption in Japan, Chinese Taipei, the US and the EU declined by more than one-third, and world consumption fell by 25% in the first two months of 2009, compared with the same period in 2008.Declining production of consumer durables, motor vehicles and industrial buildings contributed to lower stainless steel demand and falling stainless steel mill utilisation rates. Consumption also fell in China on a year on year basis, but by a comparatively moderate 7% over the same period.“In some applications such as hot water services, the current low nickel price has resulted in some substitution back to nickeliferous stainless steel. However, in other applications, for example in cutlery, substitution is yet to happen.“Consumption of nickel in developing Asia is expected to increase by around 10% in 2010, as economic growth recovers, particularly in applications where other grades of stainless steel are not as suitable such as in industrial kitchens.On nickel mine production, the Intierra forecaster said that whilst rapid declines in world nickel prices hade made production at some mines uneconomic, the major nickel mines had maintained production from 2008 levels. All major nickel producers, including the Russian Federation, Canada, Australia, Indonesia and New Caledonia have been affected by the closure or downsizing of mining operations.“In 2010, nickel mine production is expected to begin increasing in line with the forecast of a moderate rise in world prices. At these forecast prices, comparatively low cost mines are likely to begin restarting some or all of their capacity. As a result, production is forecast to increase by 6% to 1.4 Mt in 2010.“Refined production this calendar year is forecast to increase by around 9% to 1.3 Mt, as higher prices are expected to encourage higher outputs.” Refined nickel production in Australia is expected to increase by 5% to around 110,000 t. Kay said that despite mine closures, current rates of production of nickel ores and concentrates are expected to be sufficient to meet this forecast increase in production.At the same event, the global nickel lobby said the metal’s position as the world’s fourth largest and most innovative metal and major consumer product has reinforced its contribution to a sustainable future and should not be derailed by charges against it of toxicity in the workplace. Brussels-based Nickel Institute President, Stephen Barnett, said the industry had disputed and would continue to dispute any moves to classify soluable nickel compounds based on their carcinogen ratings.“A major animal study with nickel metal powder completed in 2008 showed no respiratory cancer after 24-months exposure to 1.6 MMAD nickel particles,” Barnett said. “An earlier but major oral carcinogenicity study with nickel sulphate hexahydrate did not show any systemic carcinogenicity.“We will continue to oppose any such negative classification for any nickel compounds where not supported by sound scientific data. There is inconsistent human refinery data and negative animal and mechanistic data. In terms of toxicological relevance, there are very strict safe work guidelines in place for mining and processing operations, particularly in relation to inhalation and to a lesser extent, skin contact.”Barnett said nickel remained an exceptionally unique metal, with more than 60% of output now being consumed in stainless steel production, and corrosion and heat resisting alloy applications.“It is fundamental to componentry in the power, chemical and petrochemical sectors, LNG tankage, electroplating, in superalloys in turbines, has contributed to aircraft fuel reduction, and is even used in sunglasses and earthquake protection measures,” he said. Nickel also has high intrinsic scrap value as most nickel-containing products have a long life, and 80% of such products in the European Union are collected and recycled at their end-of life.”last_img read more

Bloomberg Markets Reduces Print Frequency

first_img “The re-launch of the magazine also means that several jobs at the magazine will no longer exist in the new year,” writes Micklethwait. “For those employees who are affected, we are helping them find other positions within the company. Our hope is that most of the journalists at Markets will transfer to other jobs in Editorial by the end of the year.” Print frequency will be cut by about half. The magazine will publish the remaining two issues of 2015 in its current format, after which point Ron Henkoff, executive editor since 1999, will depart along with about a dozen other staff members. Editors Joel Weber, Stryker McGuire and Jon Asmundsson have been tasked with developing a prototype of the new Bloomberg Markets ahead of next year’s re-launch. In reducing frequency, the magazine aims to make each issue richer in content, says Micklethwait. Bloomberg Markets, the monthly magazine distributed to all Bloomberg Terminal subscribers, will re-launch in 2016 with a reduced number of issues, says editor-in-chief John Micklethwait in an announcement to Bloomberg’s American-based staff. The change is not expected to affect Bloomberg Businessweek or Bloomberg Pursuits.last_img read more

Bidhannagar mayor stripped of his powers councillors want him removed

first_imgKolkata: The Trinamool Congress leadership Sunday clipped the wings of Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation (BMC) Mayor Sabyasachi Dutta on the charge of making anti- party statements and handed over his powers to his deputy. The decision was made at an emergency meeting of BMC councillors who urged party supremo Mamata Banerjee to take a call on Dutta’s fate in the party. Senior TMC leader and minister Firhad Hakim was present at the meeting. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataDutta was not invited at the meeting, in which several councillors expressed their opinion that he should be removed from the mayor’s post, TMC sources said. “Several councillors even threatened to resign if Dutta continues as mayor. However, it was decided that party supremo Mamata Banerjee will take the final call,” said a councillor who attended the meeting. Interestingly, BJP leader Mukul Roy said Dutta is a “popular leader” who plays a role to help the saffron party. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state TMC sources said it was decided at the meeting that henceforth the BMC’s Deputy Mayor Tapas Chatterjee would handle additional responsibilities and call meetings of councillors, if needed. Several councillors also proposed Chatterjee’s name as the next mayor, but Hakim said such a decision will be taken by Banerjee, the sources said. Chatterjee, a veteran CPI(M) leader of Rajarhat- Newtown area, had switched over to the TMC in 2015. “I would inform our party supremo about the views of the councillors. I won’t say anything else,” Hakim told reporters after the meeting. The BMC has 41 councillors and 39 of them belong to the TMC. A total of 37 TMC councillors attended the meeting. The BMC covers Salt Lake and its adjacent areas. The party leadership was annoyed with Dutta after he participated in an agitation against the state’s power department and slammed the government for not fulfilling the employees’ demands for increasing their salaries. “Being a member of the party, you cannot violate its rules and regulations. It is for Sabyasachi Dutta to decide what he wants,” Hakim had said on Saturday. Dutta, however, dared the party leadership to act against him. “I am following the footsteps of our party supremo Mamata Banerjee. Our party always stands by farmers and workers. Being a trade union leader, I did the same thing,” he told PTI Saturday. Coming out in Dutta’s support, BJP leader Mukul Roy said, “He is a very popular leader and mayor. Just like several other TMC MLAs, he has played a role, which had been helpful towards the BJP,” Roy said. This is not the first time that Dutta rubbed his party up the wrong way. Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, Roy met Dutta at the latter’s residence fuelling speculations of his switch over to the saffron camp. But Dutta had then dubbed it as a courtesy meeting, which had “nothing to do with politics”. Following this, Mamata Banerjee had asked Hakim and another minister Jyotipriyo Mullick to convene a meeting of BMC councillors to discuss the matter. Dutta had then apologised for hosting Roy at his residence.last_img read more

They need to go where the bucks are Agents on ACTA partnership

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> Posted by Thursday, April 18, 2019 This story originally ran in the April 18, 2019 issue of Travelweek magazine. To get Travelweek delivered to your agency for free, subscribe here.TORONTO — The original announcement about ACTA’s new Consortium Partnership with Virtuoso was a complete bungle, and a misunderstanding that the deal was ‘exclusive’ (it wasn’t) initially drew howls of outrage. But while some agents raised an eyebrow at the Virtuoso partnership, many acknowledge that ACTA needs to bring in money. If anyone knows how important it is to survive in tough times and find new revenue streams, it’s travel agents. When Virtuoso first announced the partnership as an ‘exclusive’, competing retail groups including consortia and host agencies were furious, questioning ACTA’s mandate and their own membership.Things calmed down somewhat when ACTA issued an explanation, and an apology for the confusion, in the wake of the Virtuoso announcement. “There is not and never will be exclusivity in the program. Any prior statements claiming so were not accurate or approved by ACTA,” said ACTA Board Chair Mary Jane Hiebert.She added: “Although newly formed and still being finalized, the Consortia program is equally available to all ACTA members. ACTA would welcome discussions with all interested parties.”Hiebert’s statement was a follow up to one issued by ACTA President Wendy Paradis: “ACTA would like to clarify that we do not promote one travel agency organization over another and we do not have an exclusivity agreement with any one Travel Agency, Chain, Consortia or Host Agency that impedes other travel agency organizations from working with us in a similar capacity.”The gate was opened and now everyone has to be allowed in. So will there be any takers? ACTA’s explanation and apology soothed some ruffled feathers, but for some it won’t be enough. Others were still positive. “ACTA is an industry-led organization that advocates on behalf of all of us,” says Christine James, VP Canada, TL Network. “TL Network has a great working relationship with ACTA and our advisors are members. The more advisors associated with the organization, the stronger we all are as a whole, working together in the best interests of the retail travel sector. The support of ACTA is something we all believe in and something we all need.”As part of the Virtuoso agreement, Virtuoso’s 185 Canadian travel agency locations will receive an annual 30% rebate, shouldered by Virtuoso, on their ACTA membership, up to $750. ACTA will also provide Virtuoso members with a 30% discount on the price of Certified Travel Counselor and Certified Travel Manager registration fees.All the heated debate surrounding the Consortium Partnership could even drive up demand for more of the $5,000 partnerships, because no big retail group wants to be outdone by a competitor, especially one as high profile as luxury behemoth Virtuoso, now with $2 billion in sales in Canada and climbing.Flemming Friisdahl, Founder of The Travel Agent Next Door, says: “The reality is that ACTA is a not-for-profit organization, however it still needs to find ways of raising funds to sustain itself. I feel to have this program is not an issue [but] I think the way they have launched it seems odd and a lot to be desired in the order they did it. They should have put the program together, then put it on their site and pushed it with everyone and THEN have found their first organization to launch it with. The way it came around was 100% backwards and very poorly executed.”Friisdahl adds: “It does come back to all agents should be part of ACTA and then there would be no requirements for ACTA to work with supplier or programs like this to raise funds. I am not sure why all agents don’t support ACTA even if they do not agree with everything ACTA does, it is important we have one voice. I have to say the ACTA Board and ACTA President Wendy Paradis certainly are willing to listen and pick up the phone and this is very important.”The Consortium Partnership ushers in a new system of 2-tier retail membership in an association that represents all Canadian travel agency members. The optics aren’t great. But “ACTA like everybody else needs to change its model of business,” says Travel Is owner Ray Warner. Warner was one of the first home-based agents in Nova Scotia, and “stands alone after all of these years as an independent.” He gave up his ACTA membership years ago but still followed the ACTA-Virtuoso developments. “They need to go where the bucks are … I can’t blame ACTA for changing directions.”Opening the Consortium Partnership up to all comers creates “one of those situations where everyone is preferred, so really no one is preferred,” says Niche Travel Group owner Faith Sproule in Dartmouth, NS. However, she adds, “I think that [ACTA] had to make these partnerships to stay top of mind and viable.”ACTA’s high-profile supplier Partnerships are bad enough for many retailers, who years ago fought against allowing suppliers as ACTA members in the first place. ACTA’s supplier Partnerships took those relationships to a new level and stoked long-simmering tensions. And now this Virtuoso partnership crosses over into retail territory.In the words of one industry insider, “ACTA started down this road about seven years ago, getting cash infusions from companies to be named their ‘exclusive partner’ in various categories. They have signed up an airline, car rental company, cruise line, insurance company … a total conflict of interest as ACTA was supposed to represent agents to governments, regulators and suppliers as needed.”As the consortiums have risen to have more size and influence, ACTA’s profile and clout at the front-line agent level has dropped, she adds. “However you still need a strong agency association to represent companies to governments and supplier categories as needed, and also to IATA.”ACTA’s work behind the scenes on behalf of Canadian travel agents runs the gamut, from anti-fraud initiatives that bring together industry stakeholders with the RCMP, to work on the Air Passenger Bill of Rights from a travel agency perspective for submission to the federal government, to consumer media interviews with reporters looking for the travel agent angle.As a not-for-profit trade association, all of ACTA’s resources go towards supporting its work in advocacy, education and promoting the value of travel agents.

Australia should match Indonesia on 30 day free tourist visas

first_imgAustralia should match Indonesia on 30 day free tourist visasThe Tourism & Transport Forum Australia (TTF) has renewed its call on the Federal Government to match Indonesia’s decision to scrap the $49 fee on Australian tourists on a one month tourist visa.The Indonesian Government has announced the removal of the tourist visa fee for another 90 countries, including Australia, bringing the total to 169 countries.“This is an aggressive strategy by the Indonesian Government to attract 20 million international visitors over the next five years and Australia is being left behind with our increasingly uncompetitive visa system,” said Margy Osmond, TTF CEO.“An Australian travelling to an Indonesian destination like Bali will now incur no fee on a trip of less than a month but when the shoe is on the other foot, an Indonesian traveller coming to Australia is being charged $135 for the same visa.“The Indonesians report that they experienced a 19 per cent increase in visitor numbers after their last round of visa fee waivers in 2015 – this is an absolute no-brainer for Australia to follow suit.“Indonesia is one of Australia’s closest neighbours with a growing middle class population. Yet it is far down the list, at number 12, by the country of origin, for tourists coming to Australia with only 151,700 Indonesians visiting the past 12 months.“The Indonesian tourism market is worth approximately $10.8 billion a year but Australia is only attracting $500 million of that spending – a paltry 5.5 per cent of the Indonesian market.“It’s a big world and travellers have the choice between a destination like Indonesia that won’t charge you for a short-term visit and Australia who will slug you $135 – which one is sending you the strongest message that they want you to visit their country?“The Indonesians recognise the value of Australian tourists by this decision to abolish the visa fee for one month tourist visas. It’s just common sense that Australia should follow suit in abolishing our disincentive for travellers in Indonesia and beyond to visit our country.” Tourism & Transport ForumSource = Tourism & Transport Forumlast_img read more

Fed Meeting Could Result in Increased Interest Rates

first_img When the Federal Reserve concludes its monetary policy meeting on Wednesday, the nation could see increased interest rates for the first time in nine years.Though policymakers of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) addressed possible rate increases in its March meeting, officials couldn’t agree on which step to take next. Some policymakers argued that raising rates at the end of the fiscal year would help to stave off inflation, while others argued that the strengthening dollar and declining energy prices would do that on their own. Many also claimed that the economy would be in a better position for rate hikes in another year or so.In the end, the decision was tabled for a later date, and the FOMC moved to change its official statement on raising interest rates instead. While previously, the committee had said it would remain “patient” with regards to increasing interest rates, once the March meeting concluded, the term “patient” was removed from its official statement, presumably opening the door for rate hikes at future meetings.The statement read: “With continued improvement in economic conditions, [Committee members] preferred language that would provide the Committee with the flexibility to subsequently adjust the target range for the federal funds rate on a meeting-by-meeting basis.”Though the Fed has said this act alone shouldn’t be considered a sign of things to come, the removal of “patient” was widely assumed to mean rate hikes were inevitably on the horizon. Once the Fed’s policy meeting concludes this Wednesday, the nation may find out for sure.As for experts, most believe an increased rate is definitely on its way, but when that day will come? That they’re not so sure on.”I don’t think the Fed will have the necessary ingredients in place for a rate hike in June, but I expect economic growth and job gains to accelerate during the summer and that will lay the basis for a rate hike at the September meeting,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, told U.S. News and World Report.Dr. Ataman Ozyildrim, director of business cycles and growth cycles at The Conference Board, told the MReport the Fed may want to hold off on raising interest rates in the near future.“Leading indicators suggest the U.S. business cycle is entering a maturing phase almost six years after the end of the recession of 2008-09,” Ozyildrim said. “They still point to a moderate expansion, but economic growth ahead may be weak, and certainly doesn’t look to be much more than trend growth. Under these circumstances, the Fed might prefer to wait before raising interest rates at this time.”Experts say there are dozens of factors that must be considered before the Fed can make a decision, and a questionable economy makes it even more difficult.According to Business Insider, Patrick Newport and Stephanie Karol of HIS Global Insight said policymakers will need to factor in dock strikes, bad winter weather, the strong U.S. dollar and declining oil prices to get a clearer picture of the nation’s economy.”We expect that second quarter economic activity will be stronger than in the first quarter, paving the way for a rate hike in September, but the Fed will have to feel confident in ongoing economic strength,” Newport and Karol said.Eric Rosengren, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, told the Wall Street Journal that the global economic climate would play a role as well.“We are at very different points in the world economy,” Rosengren said. “That means we are going to be in an environment where exchange rates and interest rates may be more volatile than if everybody was moving more synchronously. We do have to be concerned.”Dr. Ozyildirim said the Leading Economic Index (LEI) should be considered, too.“When you look at the components of the U.S. Leading Economic Index, which is a forward looking index for the U.S. business cycle, building permits was the weakest component in March, but average working hours and manufacturing new orders have also slowed the LEI’s growth over the last six months,” Ozyildirim said. “These indicators all point to an economy at or maybe even slightly below trend growth. These are not conditions that suggest the economy is booming or overheating.”The Fed will conclude its monetary policy meeting on Wednesday, April 29.
