14 JOBS LOST AS GAOTH DOBHAIR COMPANY ANNOUNCES CLOSURE

first_imgPearse Doherty: Expressed sadness at job lossesSinn Féin Deputy Pearse Doherty has expressed his sadness at the news that Gweedore based company ‘Nuance’ is to close next month with the loss of some fourteen jobs.“This shock announcement by Nuance will come as a huge shock to all the workers at the company who have no doubt been dealt a huge blow as a result of this devastating news today,” he said.“The confirmation that the local Nuance outlet is set to go out of business in the coming weeks is also a massive loss to Gweedore and to the surrounding areas, and will have a negative impact on the economic landscape in this part of Donegal. “On what was otherwise a fantastic day on the jobs front, what with the announcement by Randox that it is to expand its operations in Dungloe, this decision by Nuance has caused great sadness, particularly to the workers and their families.“I would appeal to Údarás na Gaeltachta to do all it can to ensure that these jobs can be saved, and I now call on the authority to explore every possible avenue which could possibly see these workers being redeployed to different companies which receive Údarás support.” 14 JOBS LOST AS GAOTH DOBHAIR COMPANY ANNOUNCES CLOSURE was last modified: October 20th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Gaoth Dobhairjob losses?Nuancelast_img read more

An invitation to do business

first_imgSri Lankan High Commissioner to South Africa, Shehan Ratnavale, is calling on South African entrepreneurs to invest in the island nation.(Image: Shamin Chibba) City of Johannesburg council speaker Conny Bapela, left, and Shehan Ratnavale, solidify the partnership between the City and the High Commission.(Image: City of Johannesburg)MEDIA CONTACTS • Shehan RatnavaleSri Lankan High Commissioner to South Africa+27 12 460 9812Shamin ChibbaWith its economic growth soaring and tourist numbers swelling by the year, there is no reason why South African businesses should not invest in Sri Lanka. And come November, potential investors will get a chance to see exactly what the island nation has to offer when the Commonwealth Business Forum is held in Colombo.Speaking at the introduction of the forum in Johannesburg’s Metropolitan Centre on Wednesday, 29 May, Sri Lankan High Commissioner to South Africa, Shehan Ratnavale, personally invited potential investors to the event and to do business with his country.The forum will take place alongside the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, which is being held in Asia for the first time in 22 years. It would be, Ratnavale said, a great opportunity for South African investors to network with high level business representatives from 54 Commonwealth nations. “The Commonwealth is made up of developed and developing countries, and diverse cultures and traditions. This creates fertile ground for exchange of technological know-how, skills and investments that will foster sustainable economic partnerships.”Ratnavale urged South African hospitality companies to take advantage of the island nation’s recent influx of tourists. During its civil war, which ended in 2009, visitor numbers languished around 400 000, but in 2012 more than a million tourists headed to Sri Lanka. By the end of 2016, the country expects that number to increase to 2.5 million. “One of the major problems is the shortfall of hotel rooms, so we are inviting hotel investors.”He said South African investors should also consider Sri Lanka’s textiles sector, which is worth US$3-billion (R29.1-billion); agriculture; information and communications technology; and infrastructure development industries.Already, there are a few South African companies looking to cash in on Sri Lanka’s growth. Later this year, a delegation of small-to-medium enterprises from South Africa’s handicraft industry – supported by the Department of Trade and Industry – will visit the country. Soon thereafter, the South African Property Owners Association will visit to explore opportunities for investment. “I emphasise the time is right to take South African and Sri Lankan commercial relations to a different level. And the business forum provides a wonderful opportunity to do so,” said Ratnavale. Bringing the forum to JohannesburgJohannesburg’s portfolio head of economic development, Willie van der Schyf, is looking to bring the business forum to the city in the near future. When he first met Ratnavale two months ago, the high commissioner happened to mention the forum was starting an African chapter – and Van der Schyf saw an opportunity for Johannesburg to host it.Van der Schyf was responsible for initiating ties with the Sri Lankan High Commission. The partnership is part of the City’s outreach programme, which builds relationships between local businesspeople and embassies in Johannesburg. The Brics nations are also part of the programme. “We will be hosting, in July, what we call a Buy, Sell and Invest Initiative, whereby we will be attracting foreign investment into Johannesburg. And Sri Lanka will definitely be a part of that.”City of Johannesburg council Speaker, Conny Bapela, urged local businesspeople to take up Ratnavale’s offer to invest in the island. “We would be highly privileged to count Sri Lanka as one of our major partners and look forward to cementing our relations and taking them to an advanced level.” Mid-point between Africa and AsiaSri Lanka is positioning itself as an important mid-point between Africa and Asia. In August last year, Seychelles president James Michel visited Sri Lanka to discuss trade, maritime links and safeguarding their interests from pirates that sailed the Indian Ocean.In the same month, King Mswati III of Swaziland also made his way to the island. His visit led to the Sri Lankan mini tractor manufacturer, Edna Engineering, opening a factory in Swaziland’s capital of Mbabane. Sri Lanka is also looking to establish 15 diplomatic missions in Africa and the president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, recently opened a new high commission in Uganda.Last month’s HSBC Global Research report, Bridging the Gap, stated that Sri Lanka was one of three economies – including China and Malaysia – that was taking off. This was because of the public sector’s stronger role in driving infrastructure. Commonwealth Business ForumThe Colombo forum comes at a time when developed economies are struggling to recover from recession and maintain open markets, and when emerging countries are enjoying greater prominence globally. In light of this, the three-day event will cover topics to do with building new partnerships for trade, wealth creation and social development; developing small- and medium-sized businesses; and increasing tourism without threatening local economies and the ecosystem.Centred on the theme of “Partnership for Wealth Creation and Social Development”, Ratnavale said the forum would look at private entrepreneurship, global linkages and strong institutional support as solutions to these challenges.last_img read more

Governor General Advocates Zero Tolerance for Praedial Thieves

first_img Businesses that collude with the praedial larcenist must give account for such actions Story Highlights Governor General says praedial larceny “must be punished to the fullest extent of the law.” Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Sir Patrick Allen, is encouraging all large scale purchasers of agricultural produce in Jamaica to support the nation’s farmers by refusing to buy products for which vendors have no proof of ownership.“Supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, hospitals and other institutions must be vigilant in ensuring that they are not used by the individuals who heartlessly rob the farmers of their livelihood,” he said.The Governor-General was speaking during the official ceremony for day two of the 61st Denbigh Agricultural, Industrial and Food Show at the Denbigh Showground in May Pen, Clarendon on August 5.He said that it was painful for farmers to bring their crops to harvest or bring their livestock to a stage where they are ready for the market and in one night all is lost due to praedial thieves, adding that these individuals would be out of business if they did not have collaborators.“Once vendors or management of businesses and institutions are found to be colluding with the praedial larcenist, which is wreaking havoc on the agricultural sector, they also must give account for such actions. When some of these individuals who are colluding are jailed together with the original thieves of livestock and produce, the message of zero tolerance for praedial larceny will be understood,” he emphasised.The Governor-General said he was passionate about joining with leaders of the agricultural sector – the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS), the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and others in their fight against praedial larceny – a crime which he stressed “must be punished to the fullest extent of the law.”“We simply cannot continue to frustrate the effort of the farmers. We cannot grow our country when some only want to steal the harvest of what others have planted. In other words ‘to reap where they do not sow’. It is everybody’s business as we seek to fight for truth and integrity in every aspect of our society,” he emphasised.The Governor-General further encouraged all Jamaicans “to keep up the vigilant support to our farmers not merely for the benefit of our economy but also as we strive to adapt healthier life styles as we eat what we grow.” Large scale purchasers of agricultural produce warned to be vigilant against praedial larceny last_img read more

Saints Bounty Program Anthony Hargrove Denies Its His Voice

Former New Orleans defensive end Anthony Hargrove says it’s not his voice saying ”Give me the money” in a video used by the NFL as evidence in its investigation of the Saints’ bounty program.A day after Hargrove and three of his ex-teammates made appeals of their suspensions at NFL headquarters, he returned to the sidewalk outside the league offices Tuesday for an informal news conference. As curious passers-by huddled around, Hargrove read a 13-minute statement, making references to Bill Clinton and the Mona Lisa and often sounding like a colorful defense attorney giving a closing argument.”I’ve never offered nor received money to intentionally hurt a player,” Hargrove said.This week, the NFL showed reporters a clip from the 2010 NFC championship game in which Hargrove purportedly made the ”money” comment about injuring then-Vikings quarterback Brett Favre. Hargrove insisted it was someone else uttering those words, though he said he didn’t know who.Hargrove was flagged and subsequently fined $5,000 for a flagrant hit on Favre, who returned to the game.”This happens,” Hargrove said, looking into the TV cameras. ”Brett, I’m truly sorry.”Hargrove, now with Green Bay, has been suspended for eight games.NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said: ”We stand by the findings of our investigation.”On Monday, Hargrove, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Jonathan Vilma attended appeals hearings with Commissioner Roger Goodell. After the sessions, the NFL presented the same evidence it showed the players to reporters. The Hargrove clip was part of that. read more

Former Premier Hon Michael Misick releases statement on recent gun crimes

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, October 24, 2016 – Sunday morning (Oct. 23, 2016), as former Premier and a citizen of the Turks and Caicos Islands, I am shaken by the reports of three separate gun crimes that has broken the peace of the morning.  My request for the removal of the Commissioner of Police James Smith is now everyone’s issue s it is clear that he lacks the ability to bring an abatement in crime and his tenure here beyond this point will not be conducive to the safe future of our country.The fact that there were three incidents, these three incidents involving  firearms, two involving reported aggravated assaults on civilians where indeed a brave young lady was shot and one involving a brazen attack on uniformed police officers indicate that criminals are acting with little or no regard for the law.The Brit-knows-best mentality towards policing in this island nation is failing and we as locals are left to pay the price.  I challenge the Commissioner to produce statistics, reports or any tangible evidence that indicates that he, James Smith, has made a positive impact on crime in the TCI.  The fact of the matter is that the crime situation under the current commissioner has progressively deteriorated and urgent and decisive action is now required to save the Turks and Caicos Islands.I again lay out an intern plan that I would like to see implemented immediately.  And one that I will certainly pursue once I am elected.The establishment of a National Guard to protect our borders leaving police to do police work.The Transfer of all police matters to the local government and the establishment of police authority headed by a Local Commissioner of police.Higher pay and better working conditions for the police.  Including more modern crime fighting equipment.Regularize persons that were born and went through the system here so that they are able to assimilate into the community by finding work, studying at the Community College and abroad thus allowing them to make a positive contribution to our country.Offer a gun amnesty in order to get illegal guns off our streets.This is just a short list of measures that, if taken, will make a big difference and go a long way in crime prevention and keeping our Country safe.  Our nation remains Beautiful by Nature, so we must not allow crime to tarnish our pristine image.  Today we must all pray that all threats to our peace and tranquility are addressed and adequately dealt with to ensure a safe future.  Finally may the Good Lord bless you all and may God bless the Turks and Caicos Islands.last_img read more
