Estates closure next year will harm economy – GCCI President

first_imgWith Government set to close several sugar estates across the country next year, the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce (GCCI) is warning that it would be difficult to recover from the economic harm that this will cause.GCCI President Deodat IndarSpeaking at a recent press conference, GCCI President, Deodat Indar, pointed out that despite being such a major sector in the local economy, the projected percentage of the sugar industry in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at the end of the year is somewhere around 1.3 per cent.“This is an industry that has been in the double digits in the past, and we believe that shutting down these four estates will cause economic harm to the country, and it will be difficult to recover,” Indar said.According to the GCCI President, the country does not have the periphery of the other sectors to mop up the job losses from the sugar industry once the estates close.“So you will have people unemployed, and unemployment means lack of spending; lacking of spending means lack of consumption; and lack of consumption means reduced importation and reduced manufacturing. So is a whole spin-off of issues you have there,” he posited.However, during the presentation of the White Paper to privatise the cash-strapped and heavily indebted Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), back in May, Agriculture Minister Noel Holder had noted that even with major restructuring of the industry, GuySuCo is required to retain many of its workers for all operations on the merged estates, or factories, and those employees are to receive leased lands from the sugar company to engage in crops to be decided by both GuySuCo and the Ministry of Agriculture.Holder had announced plans to close the Enmore and Rose Hall sugar estates by year-end, sell the Skeldon Sugar Factory, and reduce the annual production of sugar. This will see three estates and three sugar factories in operation: Blairmont, on the West Bank Berbice, Albion-Rose Hall on the Corentyne Coast East Canje Berbice, and the Uitvlugt-Wales estate in West Demerara.However, State Minister Joseph Harmon had two weeks ago said that the closure of the Rose Hall and Enmore estates would not take effect until next year, since systems are not yet in place for the post-shutdown period.On Monday, during the 2018 Budget presentation, Finance Minister Winston Jordon told the National Assembly that sugar production is expected to decline further, come next year.Government had, under the National Industrial and Commercial Investment Limited (NICIL), established a Special Purpose Unit (SPU) at the cost of $130 million to manage the divestment of GuySuCo’s assets, including the estates and factories.Last week, the Unit announced that three firms who met the October 30 deadline for tender for International Financial Services Provider have all made presentations to a NICIL evaluation team. The three contenders: PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, and Deloitte.Head of the SPU, Colvin, Heath-London, said the second stage — the process of selecting an international financial services provider — was done on Monday last, and the Unit is expected to announce a selection by mid-December.In the meantime, the SPU has been meeting with the management of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) as well as with other industry stakeholders, including the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) and the National Association of Agricultural, Commercial, and Industrial Employees (NAACIE).According to a statement from the SPU on Monday, both GAWU and NAACIE have expressed support for the Unit’s efforts to keep the estates operational in the interest of the economy and the workers.The Opposition has since said that the SPU set up by the administration in order to sell assets belonging to (GuySuCo) is nothing but a vehicle for corruption completelThat completely bypasses the established privatisation procedures and the sale of State assets.last_img read more

Valley caught in crossfire

first_img“People live in fear over here. We hear gunshots constantly and (police) helicopters. … I don’t think an army can stop all these gang members,” said Grenados, noting that he saw LAPD officers patrolling the area just minutes before the shooting. Earlier this month, Villaraigosa and Bratton identified Canoga Park Alabama and 10 other gangs as the most wanted in Los Angeles as they announced a coordinated plan for battling surging violence. In addition to deploying 50 more officers in the Valley, the LAPD created a gang homicide unit in South L.A. and beefed up training for patrol officers. “I have no doubt they will make a large dent in gang activity,” Lt. Paul Vernon, an LAPD spokesman, said of the increased patrols. By publicly identifying the gangs and singling out their 10 Most Wanted members, the LAPD bucked its long-standing policy of anonymity – a move that experts say could instead embolden gang members to engage in more violent acts. Gang violence continued unabated in the San Fernando Valley over a bloody weekend that claimed one life, left three teenagers wounded and put the city’s latest anti-gang effort to the test. The death late Sunday of Mario Garcia Chirinos, 20, marked the Valley’s third gang-related slaying this month and the eighth this year. It came two weeks after Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and LAPD Chief William Bratton announced a renewed fight against gang violence, which surged 44 percent in the Valley last year. While Los Angeles Police Department officials expressed confidence that the 50 additional gang officers assigned to the Valley will make a difference, residents said they remain fearful of the city’s estimated 40,000 gang members. “I am a Christian man and for the first time I am thinking of buying a gun,” said Ray Grenados, a 50-year-old painter, who on Saturday night held the hand of one of three teenagers wounded in a gang-related shooting in Canoga Park. “My guess, theoretically, is that the serious suppression efforts will strengthen more than weaken gangs,” said Malcom Klein, a gang expert at the University of Southern California. “Kids join gangs for things they are not getting elsewhere: a sense of identity, reputation, status and a sense of protection. Then we crack down on those gangs and we are confirming their status and reputation.” Villaraigosa has vowed to create a prevention and intervention component to his plan but said that is still months away. Police note that the 30 percent jump in gang-related homicides in 2006 followed years of declining violent crime in the Valley, where an estimated 11,000 gang members live. But that is small comfort to residents of violence-torn neighborhoods who live in fear of gang retribution. “I know that there are more police here, but there is also more violence,” said a 47-year-old Van Nuys mother of three who asked not be identified. “They are not afraid of the police.” On Sunday night, just down the street from the woman’s two-bedroom apartment, neighbors scrambled for cover as suspected gang members brazenly fired gunshots at bystanders. No one was injured. Last year, however, somebody was killed in front of her apartment, located in territory claimed by a subset of the notorious Mara Salvatrucha gang. Gunfire in the area is a common event. “It has gotten worse over the years,” she said. “I can’t go out at night.” Two years ago, a stray bullet struck a pan being held by her husband as he stood cooking in the kitchen. The woman’s now 18-year-old daughter begged her mother to move to a different neighborhood, but the family cannot afford more than the $600 rent they now pay. Marta Rivas, a 32-year-old mother of three, is also afraid to leave her apartment on Sepulveda Boulevard in Van Nuys. “I don’t feel safe here. I hear the gangs fighting at night. Sometimes I call the police and they don’t come,” she said, folding clothes at a local laundry as her 3-year-old daughter played nearby. “I get so scared,” she said. “They don’t talk. They just shoot.” rachel.uranga@dailynews.com (818) 713-3741 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

BELIEVE: DONEGAL’S NEW DAY OF DOUBLE DESTINY IN CLONES

first_imgIt’s time to Believe againMOST people thought last year was just a blip for Donegal – a post-All-Ireland hangover which would soon wear off.A new year, some new faces, a new training regime and a new back room team and Jim McGuinness is daring to take Donegal to a new 2014 glory.And there could be no better stage than today, in Clones, against the side which de-throned Donegal as Ulster Champions a year ago. No better stage as the county goes for a double – Declan Bonner’s young charges heading into an Ulster Minor Final (2pm).There has been a lot of hot air in the past few days; one reporter compared Jim McGuinness to Sir Matt Busby!!! Another said Monaghan were red-hot favourites to wipe out Donegal today.But there will only be cool heads in the Donegal camp as Jim McGuinness prepares his side for today’s encounter and another tilt at bringing the Anglo-Celt back over the bridge in Pettigo tonight.Captain Michael Murphy says he hasn’t gotten over defeat to Monaghan last year. “You never do, but you do learn from it,” he says ahead of today’s clash.“It has all got to do with results, everyone looks back at last year and it was patchy, we got relegated and the doubters were out.”Jim McGuinness’s line-up announced on Friday is unlikely to be the same at throw-in today (4pm).Whatever side he chooses, it’s clear he has a united squad behind him which is starting to believe again.Believe. It could be another very special day for Donegal. And it would be so extra special if Declan Bonner’s side can overcome Armagh in the Minors….there could be two trophies going into Pettigo tonight….DONEGAL: Paul Durcan; Eamonn McGee, Neil McGee, Ryan McHugh; Anthony Thompson, Frank McGlynn, Paddy McGrath; Martin McElhinney, Christy Toye; Rory Kavanagh, Leo McLoone, Odhran MacNiallais; Patrick McBrearty, Michael Murphy (Capt), Colm McFadden.MONAGHAN: Rory Beggan; Ryan Wylie, Drew Wylie, Colin Walshe; Dessie Mone, Vincent Corey, Fintan Kelly; Dick Clerkin, Darren Hughes; Paudie McKenna, Stephen Gollogly, Paul Finlay; Dermot Malone, Kieran Hughes, Conor McManus (Capt)BELIEVE: DONEGAL’S NEW DAY OF DOUBLE DESTINY IN CLONES was last modified: July 19th, 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:armaghClonesdonegalGAAMinorsMonaghanUlster Finallast_img read more

McHUGH SLAMS PRINGLE OVER PROPERTY TAX PROTEST

first_imgFINE Gael Joe McHugh tonight slammed TDs behind plans to boycott a two euro per week property tax.The so-called Household Charge comes into force next month.But Joe McHugh told RTE’s Prime Time that the protest would backfire – saying a similar protest by Socialist TD Joe Higgins over bin charges led to no change. “He spent a month in prison and the only thing that happened was that he didn’t get his bin collected,” said Deputy McHugh.The Government backbencher also said any “unfairness” over the €100 per household charge will be tackled in 2013 when people with bigger homes will pay more.There are growing fears however that ordinary people in Co Donegal who built their own homes during the boom – particularly in rural areas – will be charged extra in 2013.If charges are for home sizes – rather than home values – it could be a disaster for many middle income families. © 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com McHUGH SLAMS PRINGLE OVER PROPERTY TAX PROTEST was last modified: December 15th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:McHUGH SLAMS PRINGLE OVER PROPERTY TAX PROTEST€100 chargelast_img read more
