Category: tmmswymppfqmnruh GoL, UK Host Trade, Investment Forum

first_imgA forum intended to develop, coordinate and deliver a new trade and investment policy to promote United Kingdom’s business across the globe, took place recently in Monrovia.The one-day Liberia-UK Trade and Investment forum was held under the theme: “Investment Opportunities in Liberia: Towards Inclusive Growth and Economic Diversification” and was organized by the National Investment Commission in collaboration with the British Embassy in Monrovia through its Foreign Commonwealth Office. Developing Market Associates, a leading investment promotion firm for sovereign governments worldwide focused on developing and negotiating free trade agreements and market access with non-EU countries, negotiating bilateral trade agreements and providing operational support for exports.The forum highlighted the major business sectors of the Liberian economy: agriculture, energy and mining, health, infrastructure and tourism, and also provided an opportunity for investors and potential investors to gain an in-depth knowledge of the significant investment prospects available in Liberia.For international investors and business leaders, the forum offered them the chance to engage government ministers and other senior officials and private sector participants at a strategic level.With the country recovering from the twin shocks of Ebola and sharp decline in world commodity prices, which led to some business closures, massive job losses and reduction in revenues, the need for the Liberian government to re-engage investors and partners is imperative.With about 20-30 international investors attending, the forum sought to meet its objective of creating the platform for Liberia to lay-out its economic agenda and highlight opportunities for international investors.It also initiated vigorous, constructive dialogue between would-be investors and the governments, promote Liberia’s investment competitiveness on the international stage, enhance reinforcement of existing interest in Liberia prior to the Ebola outbreak, and ensure value addition to Liberia’s raw materials.British Ambassador to Liberia David Belgrove said the forum was indicative of Liberia’s desire to ensure that the business climate in the country is attractive.Ambassador Belgrove noted that through the forum, would-be investors received a clear understanding of the outlook of the investment climate in Liberia and the areas government wants to improve through foreign investments.He said the diversification in the investment focus of Liberia would likely benefit many people because it created opportunities including eight Liberians who had the opportunity of studying different fields of interests in the United Kingdom.He assured the gathering that the British Government would cooperate and collaborate with sub-Saharan African countries, including Liberia, in support of the growth of their economies.The Chief Executive Officer of Developing Markets Associates, Atam Sandhu, said the forum is Liberia’s first ever international in-country forum aimed at building on the success of previous meetings that also reflected on the country’s growth in business in recent years.Mr. Sandhu indicated that Liberia “is known for its potential in areas such as extractive industries where the country has its wealth of natural resources.”He said the forum aimed at broadening economic partnerships with the international investment community as well as ties between Liberia and the United Kingdom in key economic sectors.For her part, NIC Chairperson Etmonia Tarpeh said the government will continue to support its economic policy with a plan to diversify investment opportunities that would focus on the agricultural sector. She assured the gathering that Liberia was now ready for business and as such, all those wishing to invest in the country should be assured that the National Investment Commission (NIC) is ready to support them.The forum was sponsored by ArcelorMittal Liberia, APM Terminals, Dawnus International, Humming Bird, Bollore, Equatorial Palm Oil, among others.

Category: tmmswymppfqmnruh Alonso ruins Spurs’ Wembley house-warming

first_img0Shares0000Chelsea’s defender Marcos Alonso celebrates after he scored their second goal against Tottenham Hotspur on August 20, 2017© AFP Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 20 – Tottenham Hotspur made a losing start to life as Wembley’s full-time tenants after Marcos Alonso’s double earned Premier League champions Chelsea a 2-1 victory on Sunday.The Spaniard struck either side of a late Michy Batshuayi own goal to get Chelsea back to winning ways after their opening 3-2 loss at home to Burnley and end Spurs’ club-record run of 14 successive home wins. Spurs went unbeaten throughout their final league campaign at White Hart Lane, but struggled at Wembley in the Champions League and have now lost eight of the last 10 matches they have played there.Mauricio Pochettino’s men appeared to have avoided the worst when Batshuayi put through his own goal in the 82nd minute, only for Hugo Lloris’s feeble attempt at a save to gift Alonso the winner two minutes from time.For Spurs, who are playing at Wembley while White Hart Lane is rebuilt, it was a first home defeat in the league since a 2-1 loss to Southampton in May 2016.Having endured a deeply trying start to the season, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will hope victory over the team his side pipped to the title last season will bring some much-needed positivity back to Stamford Bridge.The Italian celebrated Alonso’s winner with characteristic abandon on the touchline, thoughts of his side’s transfer window struggles and his long stand-off with want-away striker Diego Costa seemingly banished.Chelsea’s list of absentees — suspended pair Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas, injury victim Eden Hazard and the exiled Costa — moved Conte to adopt an unfamiliar 3-5-1-1 system, with David Luiz anchoring the midfield.He also gave a debut to £40 million ($51.5 million, 43.8 million euros) new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko, who produced a leggy 90-minute showing in his first appearance since arriving from French champions Monaco.– Kane hits post –Chelsea’s striker Michy Batshuayi (2ndL) scores an own goal during an English Premier League football match against Tottenham Hotspur on August 20, 2017Alvaro Morata should have crowned his full Chelsea debut with an early goal, only to head wide from seven yards when Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross picked him out unmarked, but in the 24th minute his side did go ahead.Chelsea were awarded a free-kick after Dele Alli clipped Luiz and from a position 25 yards from goal, slightly to the right of centre, Alonso arced a magnificent shot into the top-right corner.Harry Kane, Alli and Mousa Dembele had all threatened for Spurs prior to Chelsea’s opener and after falling behind, they dominated the rest of the first half.Kane bent a shot against the base of the right-hand post after cutting inside Andreas Christensen from Alli’s pass, while Ben Davies saw a swerving effort from range clubbed away by the diving Thibaut Courtois.The hosts could count themselves unfortunate to be behind, but they were also a little lucky to keep 11 men on the field after Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen escaped with yellow cards for ugly fouls on Luiz and Victor Moses.With Chelsea’s back three becoming more of a back five, they successfully held Spurs at bay in the second half and came close to adding a second goal when Willian’s low drive came skidding back off the post.Spurs thought they had rescued a point with eight minutes remaining when Batshuayi, who had only been on the pitch for four minutes, inadvertently headed Christian Eriksen’s free-kick into his own net.But six minutes later, Alonso picked up a loose ball in midfield and swapped passes with substitute Pedro before drilling a low shot beneath Lloris to give Chelsea victory.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Category: tmmswymppfqmnruh World Cup hosts Russia defend anti-racism chief in theft probe

first_img0Shares0000Russia’s anti-racism inspector Alexei Smertin defended by World Cup hosts over embezzlement probe © AFP/File / Yuri KADOBNOVMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Apr 24 – Russian football bosses are rallying behind World Cup anti-racism inspector Alexei Smertin in an embezzlement probe unfolding less than two months before kickoff.The scandal surrounding Moscow police club Dynamo brings together two major problems facing Russia ahead of the June 14-July 15 final: monkey chants and corruption. A former Chelsea player, Smertin serves both as the World Cup’s chief anti-discrimination official and Dynamo’s executive director.His second job turned into a poisoned chalice when evidence came to light of 1.6 million euro ($2 million) being stolen from the team by former general director Yevgeny Muravyov.The sums involved are not large when compared to the money splashing around in the bigger European leagues.But they have added to organisers’ headaches as they race against the clock to put on the most expensive World Cup ever staged.Dynamo on Tuesday confirmed that it had submitted financial records linked to Smertin and Muravyov to the interior ministry.The RBK business news site said Muravyov is suspected of wiring the 1.6 million euros to his own shell companies using the cover of two fictitious business deals.Dynamo concedes that the documents authorising the money transfers were signed by Smertin — a charismatic former national team captain who played for English Premier League giants Chelsea in 2003-2006.But it argued on Tuesday that Smertin was forced into approving the transactions by Muravyov.“The information available to (the team) permits us to believe that Smertin was intentionally deceived by, and was carrying out the direct orders of, Dynamo’s former general director,” it said.A Russian football source familiar with the investigation told AFP that police also did not hold Smertin responsible for the wire transfers.The interior ministry has issued no comment and Muravyov has denied being aware of any wrongdoing at Dynamo.“I have no idea what people are talking about,” he told the Sport Express website on Monday.Smertin is responsible for raising awareness about racism in Russian football and cleaning up the domestic game.It is a high-profile role on which world governing body FIFA is placing special emphasis because of racial abuse at Russian matches in the past months.FIFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Russia over monkey chants heard during a World Cup warm-up against France in Saint Petersburg in March.And Russian football chiefs on Wednesday will study video of abusive chanting directed at Cape Verdean midfielder Nuno Rocha during a domestic cup semi-final in Moscow.Dynamo are a storied club who were backed by the secret police in the Soviet era but have had financial difficulties in more recent years.They were relegated to Russia’s second division in 2016 and underwent a management overhaul in March.Smertin began his carrier playing for Dynamo’s northern Siberia squad in his native city of Barnaul.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
