President Weah Visits China in September

first_imgPresident Weah cuts ribbon the annexesReaffirms One China PolicyPresident George Weah on Thursday accepted an invitation extended him by the President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping, to visit that country in September.Chinese Ambassador Fu Jijun announced President Xi’s invitation at program marking the official handover and dedicatory ceremony of the two annexes to the Capitol Building, seat of the Legislature. The ceremony was held in the Rotunda of the Capitol Building in Monrovia.Fu said, “We believe that the cordial and in-depth talks between the two leaders, at the coming China-Africa Cooperation Forum Summit, will produce more fruitful results, and create a better future for our mutual beneficial cooperation.”In accepting the invitation, President Weah reechoed earlier pledges of Liberia’s support for the one China policy by Senate Pro-Tempore Albert Tugbe Chie, and House of Representatives Speaker Bhofal Chambers respectively.President Weah recalled and appreciated China’s immense help rendered Liberia, with particular reference to the urgent assistance intervention during the 2014 Ebola virus disease outbreak, and the ongoing construction of the multi-million dollar Ministerial Complex.“We look forward to more bilateral developments, especially in the area of agriculture,” Weah said to the Chinese.Ambassador Fu said that the many projects the Chinese Government and people have undertaken are a way to express the Chinese friendly sentiments to Liberian government and people.The Chinese Ambassador said like President Weah, who has proposed a pro-poor agenda, “President Xi Jinping was recently reelected for second term, “has proposed the new era development aim for China; both of the proposals have committed to improving the lives of their people.”As a developing country, Amb. Fu said China and Liberia are both facing similar challenges for pushing forward development and reducing poverty. “After successfully helping its 800 million people throw off poverty in the last 40 years, China has made a plan to help its last 30 million people get rid of poverty before 2020,” Fu said.In this regard, Amb. Fu said China understands and empathizes the suffering of Liberian people and the challenges Liberian government faces. “China,” he said, “is ready to share its experiences including lessons learned with Liberia for development and poverty reduction; China will continue to help Liberia for achieving its glorious goal of the pro-poor agenda.”The Chinese Envoy disclosed that with respect to road connection, an expert team from China is doing the feasibility study for the two flyover bridges; while in the healthcare, he said China will help the John F. Kennedy Hospital to set up a a new clinic laboratory, and in the human resource development, his country will increase its scholarship and training to Liberian youths.Meanwhile, President Weah has announced a US$0.14 cents drop in the price of gasoline on the local market which takes effect today, but did not elaborate.The President challenged the Senators that the best way to show appreciation for the Chinese Government’s laudable goodwill, is placing importance to maintenance of the two annexes, especially the restrooms.Meanwhile, both Speaker Chambers and Protemp Chie, while thanking the Chinese government for the US$12.9 million annexes, assured President Weah that the Legislature will use three weeks as “Independence Break” to take to their respective counties some important legislation that need passage or ratification before their annual break in August.Protemp Chie was specific about the Land Rights Act, Local Government Act, and Amendment to the Constitution of Liberia submitted by the Constitutional Review Commission.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

SA to grow African tourism market

first_img“A visitor who feels he or she has been served well and warmly received will reciprocate with friendliness and a desire to visit again,” Van Schalkwyk said. According to the Department of Tourism, Van Schalkwyk’s visit forms part of South African Tourism’s Welcome campaign, launched in 2005 to encourage South Africans to be good hosts. Van Schalkwyk pointed out that while global travel markets were feeling the pinch of the economic recession, arrivals from Africa continued to grow, outperforming arrivals from the UK and the rest of Europe combined. 12 August 2009 He said the total foreign direct spend by visitors to South Africa from African land markets amounted to more than R43-billion last year, up from just over R35-billion in 2007. “Of these, 491 601 were from Mozambique, Swaziland, Lesotho and Botswana. Arrivals from Mozambique are also of great importance to us, and last year we saw more than 1.2-million visitors from Mozambique.” He said one of the ways of doing this was to ensure border officials were well versed on what it meant to provide good service. Van Schalkwyk said the majority of visitors from SADC countries travelled to South Africa for shopping, to visit friends and family, and for general holiday purposes, contributing significantly to the South African economy. Providing good service “Last year, more than seven million people from SADC countries visited South Africa. Statistics from April this year show that arrivals from the Africa land markets numbered 665 318 visitors so far this year,” he said. “The average spend per trip by visitors from these markets was R10 800 in 2008,” he said. “This cannot be regarded as small change in anybody’s book, and we are committed to growing our African tourism markets in every way possible.” Significant economic contribution “Furthermore, with the 2010 Fifa World Cup less than a year away, we need to ensure that our African neighbours feel welcome. This World Cup belongs to the continent, and we need to involve our neighbours in assisting with the promotion of the tournament and in delivering a truly African World Cup to the rest of the world.” These include Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. “This border post at Lebombo often receives between 300 000 and 500 000 people during peak periods, and it is therefore very apt that we today thank our border officials for their hard work and encourage them to continue to embody the spirit of the Welcome campaign,” Van Schalkwyk said. With African land arrivals making up almost 75% of foreign arrivals to South Africa, Tourism Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk says the importance of African visitors should not be underestimated. “Officials at the border often worked long, tedious hours and dealt with a magnitude of people, particularly during peak season. We have what we call ‘Welcome Values’ that we would like for them to live out in their daily workplace. Van Schalkwyk was visiting the Lebombo border post near Nelspruit in Mpumalanga province this week, during which he addressed border officials on the important role they played in influencing the number of repeat travellers originating from neighbouring Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries.

Play for Team SA on Football Fridays!

first_imgTo start getting excited about the biggest sporting show on the planet – arriving on African soil for the first time on Friday, 11 June 2010.To start supporting the African team that will run out onto the pitch at Johannesburg’s Soccer City Stadium on that day – Bafana Bafana.To start getting ready to welcome hundreds of thousands of travelling football fans, and hundreds of millions of television viewers, to the southern tip of Africa. Where did the idea come from? According to Wikipedia, Casual Friday (or Dress-down Friday, or simply Casual Day) is “an American and Canadian custom which has spread to other parts of the world, wherein some offices celebrate a semi-reprieve from the constrictions of a formal dress code.” South Africa celebrates Casual Day on the first Friday of September each year (coinciding with the arrival of Spring) as a way of raising money, awareness and support for people with disabilities. On 24 April 2009, South African hotel group Southern Sun launched Football Fun Days, encouraging its 6 000 staff members to don their favourite football jersey every Friday, in order to “start ‘living’ the message that soon we will be hosting the world’s largest football event.” In August 2009, at the 2010 National Communication Partnership conference in Johannesburg, South Africa’s major 2010 partners acknowledged the power and simplicity of Southern Sun’s initiative, and decided to take it national, under the banner of the Fly the Flag for Football campaign that was launched in April. Speaking at the conference, 2010 Organising Committee chairman Irvin Khoza urged South Africans to appreciate the enormity of the World Cup, and to make the most of the event to promote the country and the continent in all its energy and diversity. “Think of the tournament as a 30-day commercial for South Africa,” Khoza said. “A 30-day television commercial to be watched by a cumulative audience of billions around the globe. This is the scale of the opportunity for South Africans to present this country effectively and proactively.” Now it’s up to us – each one of us – to determine how strong the message, how powerful the impact, of our “30-day commercial”. The Fridays are fast ticking down until the 2010 Fifa World Cup kick-off, and South Africans are being urged to mark each one by “dressing down” in a way that will come naturally to a sports-crazy population – by wearing a football shirt to work (or play).What is Football Fridays? It’s a call to all South Africans to get behind the 2010 Fifa World Cup: Wear one, tell your friends to wear one, tell your work colleagues to wear one, tell your kids to wear one. Kids, tell your parents to wear one. Get one for your dog to wear.Get interested. Get excited. Get talking – about the team whose shirt you’re wearing. About your favourite players. About football … Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo materialcenter_img Because it’s all about football. And being part of the same team: Team South Africa.Anything else I should be doing?Don’t let us hold you back! We want to show the world what Team South Africa is about. So: wear a makarapa. Blow a vuvuzela. Fly the South African flag. Practise singing the South African anthem. Get ready to be a good host in 2010!Can I wear any football shirt? Yes. Obviously, we’d prefer it if it were a Bafana Bafana shirt. But whether it displays the colours of the national team or of Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, Real Madrid or Man United, by wearing it each Friday, you’ll be showing your true colours as a supporter of South Africa 2010.Why Football Fridays? Because as events go, as audience goes, as media coverage goes, it doesn’t come bigger than the football World Cup. Pulling it off is going to take a Team South Africa effort. And because we won’t get another chance like this to show the world that we can. That Africa is not just about war, disease, poverty or crime. That we’re a country and a continent that’s alive with warmth, energy, resources, resourcefulness, resilience, ambition, ubuntu. Possibility.Who’s behind Football Fridays? Football Fridays is a joint initiative of the country’s major 2010 partners: What should I do for Football Fridays? Wear a football shirt to work (or play) on Friday – every Friday between now and the start of the 2010 Fifa World Cup on Friday, 11 June 2010. Got that sorted? Now go have some fun: The 2010 Fifa World Cup SA Organising CommitteeThe Government Communication and Information SystemSouth African TourismThe International Marketing Council of South AfricaThe South African Broadcasting Corporationlast_img read more

Friendly corn, bearish soybean ending stocks but soybeans actually higher

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Doug Tenney, Leist MercantileCorn ending stocks were less than expected. Soybean ending stocks 110 million bushels above trade expectations but soybeans not falling off. World corn ending stocks went down. Looks like the market looking at more than trade issues, weather, and a much higher soybean ending stocks than expected.Shock, awe in recent years were words used to describe US overseas military efforts. Those same words can easily be inserted to reflect producer and trader’s mindset since late May. In that time frame corn has fallen 75 cents and soybeans have seen a huge decline of $2.10. Trade tensions and announced trade tariffs between the US/China have accounted for 80% of the price decline according to some analysts. Great weather that at the moment is non-threatening for much of the Midwest has also been a big factor in the price declines.US corn 2018-19 ending stocks were estimated at 1.552 billion bushels. Last month it was 1.577 billion bushels. Corn production was less than expected, and a very friendly sign. Soybean ending stocks for that same crop year were 580 million bushels. Last month it was 385 million bushels. USDA with this report will calculate expected changes to US grain exports.Corn prior to the report was down 1 cent, soybeans down 1 cent, with wheat up 5 cents. Shortly after the report corn was up 6 cents, soybeans up 3 cents, and wheat up 11 cents.Producers with this report are looking are some morsel of friendly news to stop the bleeding of lower prices the last several weeks. The overall mood ahead of the report was to expect a bearish or negative report.Last month USDA put the US corn yield at 174 bushels per acre while the soybean yield was estimated at 48.5 bushels per acre. They have been using that same yield since May. Typically the July yields would not change from those used in May. Then the August report will be the first monthly Supply and Demand report that actual field surveys are used to determine the US yield average.It is no surprise that the ending stocks for corn, soybeans, and wheat were expected to increase. This is due to ideas that the US would be exporting less grain because of the trade tensions with China. As of this date the US and China are not talking. China continues to take the stance that forced technology transfers and concerns about intellectual property theft are unacceptable. For them these items are non-starters. Bottom line, somebody needs to man up and get the talks going again. The reality is that trade wars are bearish and can last longer than anyone ever expects. The last six weeks since late May have resulted in sharp declines for corn and soybeans. December CBOT corn was $4.28 ½ the last week of May. On June 29, it was $3.71. Prior to the report today, it was near $3.53. November CBOT soybeans have seen a much steeper decline in that same time. Late May they had reached $10.60. June 29 they had fallen to $8.80. Earlier today November soybeans were $8.50.Traders had estimated 2018-19 ending stocks for corn to increase to 1.712 billion bushels. The June Supply and Demand report was 1.577 billion bushels. Little change is expected for the 2017-18 corn ending stocks which last month were 2.102 billion bushels. Soybean ending stocks for the 2018-19 year were estimated by the trade at 471 million bushels. The June report was 385 million bushels.The USDA report was expected to set the tone for today. Weather in the Midwest does not look to be experiencing above normal temperatures in the next ten days. Overall, the weather is bearish. It has been said many times, trade wars are not friendly. We are certainly in a trade war at this time.last_img read more

Do Open Protocols Bring Storage Costs Down?

first_imgTags:#cloud#Trends#Vendors#Virtualization mike kirkwood Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market The move to virturalization leaves no stone left unturned. It touched the public network via EC2 (and now a host of hosts) it formed the Cloud and fused a new generation of the Internet. Service orientated also hits the data centers and this means things like switches, servers, and disk.At the core of the movement of virtualization movement is freedom of the physical environment. Optimize hardware performance and set the workload free. In the process of doing this, a promise of cost savings has set a off a storm in re-factoring the data center.This is the first in a series of posts taking a look at areas of the data center and how an openness strategy become a driver for winning customers by bringing costs down.We took a look at the storage landscape from the eyes of Hitachi Data Systems, “HDS”. We spoke with Hu Yoshida, CTO of HDS. He gave us a practical overview on how the needle of enterprise costs are being reduced focusing on reducing operational costs. One thing the he mentioned was that Hitachi’s HDS division was able to grow in the storage business in this tough climate, which is amazing considering it is an industry that follows economic spending as a whole. Yoshida attributes part of this to HDS decision to deliberately disrupt their own “closed” box solution where storage and management are sold together. This allows IT shops to have more choice, and decouple vendors. He said that this was a big decision for the company, as it opened up more competition to a core business. Protocol vs. API Yoshida said that the team at HDS decided it was inevitable for this protocol level standardization to exist. His team felt that HDS needed to be a leader in this opportunity. He cited a customer that uses an HDS head as a management function that had NetApp behind it as a pattern they supported that several years ago would have been done by partnership rather than protocol level support. Although in this scenario HDS didn’t win “all tiers” of this storage solution, it was able to be a fabric and join a customer that “loves NetApp” and loves HDS too.Mr. Yoshida said that his company decided to fully embrace the protocol level integration with the surrounding systems, instead of only releasing only APIs, as a means to allow more competition – and cooperation in the ecosystem through technology rather than selective partnerships. Considering the TiersAn area of storage that is ripe for cost savings is supporting different types of solutions, e.g. production vs. development and classes of storage based on the application. In his blog post, New Considerations for Tiered Storage, Hu examines reduction of costs. Looking under the covers we see that there is a lot of questions to ask in the details of these strategies, and marketing matters in how solutions are perceived and how different types of hardware (for example Seagate vs. HDS) make a difference for buyers, and that to be a leader, it is key to have answers across the industry ecosystem.When we look at the decision being on moving the cost needle down for operations management instead of hardware savings, it becomes clear that playing nicely pays. HDS is a company that plays on both sides of the storage spectrum (management layer and disk) and it’s partnerships include relationships with HP (as OEM) and companies like Cisco and Brocade as go-to-market partners. It is tempting to “hardwire” solutions together, but it is a bigger win when instead these are loosely coupled and partner-ready.Looking at it from the angle of cost reduction for open standards gives the pivot point to consider this natural tension offered by virtualization has a promise binding vendors together to optimize their solutions for the plug-and-play data center.Does an open protocol powered data center reduce total costs?

The Only People Who Complain About Salespeople

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now You know who really believes that salespeople are self-oriented, smarmy, money-grubbing brutes? The answer may surprise you. If you guessed that it’s buyers, customers, and clients, you would be incorrect. Instead, those who believe salespeople are awful, foul, nasty monsters are the self-loathing sales experts (read charlatans), especially those of the LinkedIn variety.There is no scientific study that I am aware of, but if one were to look at the number of posts on social platforms where a buyer, customer, or client complains about a salesperson and contrast it with posts in which a self-loathing sales expert writes about how terrible are their brethren, the numbers will be shockingly tilted toward the latter.If evolution is designed around the survival of the fittest, then certain traits tend to be minimized over time and better traits built on top of what came before. Evolution is an apt metaphor here, especially since the behaviors that have long been eradicated haven’t served salespeople for decades. These behaviors haven’t largely been eliminated by sales experts, as much as by salespeople adjusting their approach based on their experience.The reason high pressure tactics are no longer in practice is because they no longer work, having been eliminated as customers and clients had more choices and less reason to buy from someone they don’t like or trust. There are plenty of people who are smart enough to create value and are also likable.The reason salespeople don’t sell people things they don’t need-even if the salesperson would personally benefit from doing so—is because there wouldn’t be a second sale in their future. Salespeople who refuse to trade their integrity and their relationships for a deal are the norm, with the few salespeople with low moral quotients being the rare exception of those who would do “whatever it takes.”Salespeople who succeed now know that their success is a direct reflection of the value they create for their clients and customers, including any financial success they hope to have. They also know—and have known for decades—their longterm success requires them to be accountable for delivering the outcomes they’ve sold. Great salespeople have always developed the business acumen and situational knowledge to provide advice to their clients, with the only real novelty here being the demand they have much more of it, not that they become “social sellers,” the high-water mark in the minds of the self-loathing sales expert, who is left to complain about the cold call and a variable compensation structure as proof of how bad are salespeople.last_img read more
