  • Ports North’s Port Master Planning Project Moves Forward

    first_imgPorts North’s Port Master Planning Project has taken an important step forward with the appointment of GHD Advisory to undertake a detailed technical plan that will map out options for developing the Ports of Cairns and the Port of Mourilyan over a 30-year timeframe.Commenting the latest news, Transport and Main Roads Minister, Mark Bailey, said that the master planning process was fundamental to ensuring Queensland’s ports had a long-term vision for growth and expansion while protecting the environment.“This process will present a pathway for the ports to grow in a way that respects their place alongside the reef and the environmental values shared by the communities in which they are located,” Mr Bailey said.“Queensland’s publicly-owned ports are a critical part of the state’s supply chain and must be supported with a plan that will allow them to grow and increase trade capacity in step with our growing economy.”Development of the plans will be tailored to each port but will include a range of considerations such as:trade demand, forecasting and feasibility analysis – including reef fleet, marinas, cruise, project cargo, bulk cargo, bulk storage, marine maintenance, navy, fishing, break bulk, containers;cargo diversity and emerging opportunities;infrastructure condition, capacity and utilization;maintenance and capital dredging requirements;future land utilization and allocations.Drafts of the master plans for Cairns and Mourilyan are expected in 2020.last_img read more

  • Prof Karabus thanks South Africa

    first_img17 May 2013 Professor Cyril Karabus, who arrived at Cape Town International Airport on Friday following eight months’ detention in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on charges of which he was finally acquitted, thanked South Africa for its support during his ordeal. “I really must thank everybody. Your support has just been fantastic,” the 78-year-old, a specialist paediatric oncologist who is an emeritus professor at the University of Cape Town, told the large crowd gathered to welcome him. Karabus had been in detention in Abu Dhabi since August 2012, when he was arrested while in transit. He had been found guilty, in absentia, in 2003, on charges of manslaughter and fraud following the death of a three-year-old Yemeni girl he had treated for leukaemia while doing locum work in Abu Dhabi in 2002. Karabus was unaware of the charges and the sentence until his arrest in 2012. After his case was postponed 13 times due to the inability of the prosecution to present documentary evidence, Karabus was finally acquitted by a United Arab Emirates court in March, based on the findings of a medical review committee which absolved him from all blame in the case. This followed a visit to the UAE by Deputy International Relations Minister Marius Fransman, who met with UAE Under-Secretary of Foreign Affairs Abdulla Al Hamed to discuss the case. The South Africa government was involved from the beginning of Karabus’ ordeal, taking several actions to bring his case to a resolution. The government’s concerns centred on Karabus’ right to a fair and speedy trial, as well as his health and age. International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane wrote a letter to her UAE counterpart requesting that the case be resolved fairly and quickly, while the government twice summoned the UAE ambassador to South Africa to express its concerns over the issue. In January, Fransman paid a visit to Karabus’s family in Cape Town to brief them on the government’s efforts to assist the professor. Addressing the media at Cape Town International on Friday, Fransman said: “We are elated to have Prof Karabus back in Cape Town, South Africa, where his absence for almost eight months was felt mostly so by his close family as well as the broader family, i.e. the South African nation.” Fransman thanked Karabus and his family for their “full cooperation, understanding and patience”, and the legal team that worked with Karabus “for ensuring that justice is done”. He also acknowledged the role played by civil society in highlighting Karabus’ plight. “The medical fraternity, the media, business organisations and individuals all had a hand in agitating for the freedom that Prof Karabus has come home to enjoy.” Fransman stressed that South Africa “respects the independence of the judiciary and its processes in the UAE, and that we are committed to maintaining our cordial diplomatic and trade relations with the UAE”.

  • Three African currencies to trade on SA exchange

    first_img7 October 2014The first currency futures that track the exchange rate between the South African rand and and select African currencies was launched by the Johannesburg Stock Exchange on Friday, the JSE announced in a statement.The three new currency futures track the exchange rate between the South African rand and the Zambian kwacha, the Kenyan shilling and the Nigerian naira. Currency futures allow investors as well as importers and exporters to protect themselves against the currency movement in the foreign country.The African currencies made their debut on the JSE derivatives market, where they will be quoted against the rand.The three currencies will fall under the JSE’s currency derivatives unit, incepted in 2007, allowing them to be traded with Group of 10 currencies of developed economies, including the dollar, euro and the pound.Cross-currency tradingThe new futures contracts will give market participants exposure on the JSE to the exchange rate between the US dollar and the Zambian, Kenyan and Nigerian currencies by trading against the rand.To promote this cross-currency trading the JSE will charge trading fees on only one of the foreign trade logs, not both.The latest trade statistics from the South African Revenue Service (SARS) show trade flow between South Africa and Nigeria amounted to R34.4-billion between January and July this year. In the same period, trade between South Africa and Kenya amounted to R4,6-billion and trade between South Africa and Zambia was valued at just under R18- billion.“With Africa being a global investment destination it makes sense for the JSE as a major exchange player in Africa to be involved in providing appropriate products to mitigate currency risk and exposure when dealing in Africa,” says Warren Geers, General Manager: Capital Markets at the JSE.Groundbreaking developmentThe JSE partnered with Barclays Africa and specialist brokers, Tradition Futures, to bring this new offering to market.The platform will allow participants to trade anonymously, with the JSE assuming the role of credit counterparty to all transactions.Andrew Gillespie of Tradition Futures says “It is a groundbreaking development to have a transparent, independent, well regulated platform to mitigate or assume FX Risk in these African countries, against any other currency of their choice – that does not prejudice anyone, irrespective of size, domicile or nationality … This allows for a level and fair playing field, where the best price is available to all, without bias or favour, which is a significant facet and feature of this market in African FX on the JSE.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

  • Roundtable Friday: are we more excited about football or hoops?

    first_img@CarsonC5Both should be favored to win the Big 12, let’s get that out of the way. There’s no wrong answer. Football has more question marks. Will Glenn Spencer be a difference maker? Or just the next name on the list field a leaky defense? And — unpopular opinion alert — I’m not sure OSU is starting the right quarterback. The thing no one wants to talk about is Chelf feasted on the worst Big 12 defenses (Tech, WVU, OU)[1. Not to mention Purdue. I’m convinced Alex Cate could’ve run it up on the Boilermakers.] while Lunt had to face the best (K-State on the road, TCU). While Walsh may have been the most productive. Gundy’s already backpedaling a little bit[2. Per NewsOK.] Certainly a good headache to have.Despite the QB carousel, it all comes down to the defense and the schedule looks like Gundy drafted it. Big, big season awaits.But I think it has to be basketball. Strictly because the hoops team should be national contenders, not just league favorites[3. Ford is still doing this in his living room.]. I don’t think they are flawless, though. What happens if Cobbins gets in foul trouble? Gary Gaskins may help, or he may be Jared Shaw. Marcus Smart aside, OSU fans should be downright giddy about Stevie Clark. I have been covering Stevie since his freshman year of high school and he’s the best player I’ve ever seen. He is going to be incredible[4. Including launching threes from the Pistol Pete logo.].It’s Final Four or bust and GIA is going to be a monster. [insert “Ford may mess this all up” joke here]PistolsboyHoops, and it’s not close. Football is going to be great next year but for me there’s still a sense of “hey, we had our dream season of the last decade and that was 2011.” We might have another great one, but I’m not sure anything can measure up to that one — short of us winning a title and Chelf stripping down to his compression shorts in the Rose Bowl and 2,000 USC co-eds descending on him within a matter of seconds.Know how many NCAA Tournament wins we have since going to the Final Four in 2004, which was nine years ago? Three (we have five bowl wins in the same timespan). Those Tournament wins were against Southeastern Louisiana, Southern Illinois, and Tennessee.That’s it.So to bring back a top 10 team with a legitimate national POY candidate leading the charge and a tipsy GIA ready to explode twice a week? Come on, football is great, but Josh Stewart and Jeremy Smith aren’t touching that.The thing that’s being downplayed is that I don’t think people know how good this OSU basketball squad is going to be. They were a possession away from winning the Big 12 regular season title last year and basically return everybody but the guy who committed one fewer foul (92) than he had points (93).Not even Travis Ford could screw this thing up![2. (gulps).]AmilianSeveral times we’ve thrown around the question of “Would you rather have a consistent top 20 basketball program with an occasional Final Four appearance or a football program that averages 9-10 wins a year with an occasional BCS Bowl throw in the mix?”. This question was posed a couple years ago when football was on an all-time high and basketball was on an all-time low (for my lifetime). I’ve always gone with basketball. The memories I have of Gallagher-Iba from the early Eddie days through 2005 far outweigh the success our football team has had in recent years. Now we have a shot to be really, really good in both sports simultaneously and it’s not close. Give me hoops. Smart is saving more than Travis Ford’s job. He’s preserving the momentum GIA was gaining. I’ve said it for years: The only way we consistently get the traditional rowdiness back in that arena, is a sustained period of success. I’m so pumped for next season. I just talked myself into buying season tickets. Gallagher-Iba Arena is going to be special again and I want to be a part of it.You can buy season tickets for only $199!![6. This was not paid for or endorsed by anyone with an okstate.edu address.]If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! osu2013We haven’t done this in a while but with Marcus Smart’s decision on Wednesday we wanted to go another round with Roundtable Friday. Today’s question: are we more excited about football next year or hoops?[1. Question courtesy of @carsonc5 — as well as the photo — he basically did this whole post.]OKC DaveIt has to be basketball. Football will be fun. We have a lot to look forward to this season. But we’re not going to challenge for the national championship in football. At best, we’ll lose a game or two and be in the mix for a conference championship – certainly something to be excited about in Stillwater, Oklahoma. But I think that’s our ceiling (prove me wrong, boys!).Smart & company are unequivocally going to be the favorite to win the Big 12 and will be in several pre-season Final Fours. This is the most anticipated OSU basketball season since 2004-05. Being excited about basketball does not diminish my excitement for the football season at all – but if we happen to drop a football game at home this year, as you stumble back to your tailgate all you have to do is glance to the east and gaze upon GIA to lift your spirits.last_img read more

  • Region Charged to Adopt Gender-Sensitive Response to Climate Change

    first_img Canada’s High Commissioner to Jamaica, Her Excellency Laurie Peters, has called on countries of the region to adopt more gender-sensitive measures in reducing vulnerability and building resilience against climate change.She said that this can be done by integrating gender issues into policies, programmes and activities, with specific focus on empowering women and girls.“Canada wants to see a climate smart region… that promotes environment and climate action by advancing women’s leadership and including women and girls in the planning and decision-making process,” she said.Ms. Peters was addressing a workshop dubbed ‘Conversations on Gender. The Role of Gender in Building Climate Resilience in Jamaica’, at the Waterloo Road location of the Canadian High Commission in Kingston on Tuesday (June 26).She noted that it is Canada’s hope that this inclusive approach will support initiatives that will both mitigate and adapt to climate change and also create economic opportunities for women.“Here in Jamaica and in the region, Canada’s goal is to help build a more prosperous and integrated Caribbean community, one that is able to empower women and girls, reduce poverty by enabling sustainable economic growth, and eventually provide opportunity and security to its citizens,” she said.Ms. Peters further noted that the workshop demonstrates Canada’s continued commitment to Jamaica and the region in charting a course towards enhancing the country’s resilience.“The development team here at the Canadian High Commission has embarked on this series of Conversations on Gender to engage civil society, government partners and a broad range of stakeholders to discuss gender issues, advance policies and programmes and share critical and timely information and ideas to ensure that gender equality is at the centre,” she noted.The workshop was the second in a series organised by Global Affairs Canada (GAC). The entity, through its Feminist International Assistance Policy (FIAP), seeks to promote the economic empowerment of women and girls in Jamaica, and through this approach, to make a strong contribution to achieving sustainable development goals.The workshop brought together a wide cross section of representatives from the climate/environment sector, and government ministries, departments and agencies. Also in attendance were private-sector entities, members of academia and professional umbrella organisations.Discussions focused on the topic ‘How will we together ensure that in building climate resilience in Jamaica, gender is effectively addressed?’.The workshop series is expected to contribute to the advancement of women’s equal participation with men as decision-makers in shaping the sustainable development of their societies; reduction in gender inequalities in access to and control over the resources and benefits of development; and increased awareness among decision-makers on gender equality issues. Canada’s High Commissioner to Jamaica, Her Excellency Laurie Peters, has called on countries of the region to adopt more gender-sensitive measures in reducing vulnerability and building resilience against climate change. She said that this can be done by integrating gender issues into policies, programmes and activities, with specific focus on empowering women and girls. “Canada wants to see a climate smart region… that promotes environment and climate action by advancing women’s leadership and including women and girls in the planning and decision-making process,” she said.
