‘Partnership needed to lift economy’

first_img15 October 2012A robust partnership between the government, business and labour is needed to address the economic challenges facing South Africa, says President Jacob Zuma.“There is a need to work together on our economy … which has also faced pressure due to the current wave of strikes,” Zuma said at a social dialogue meeting between government, business and labour representatives in Pretoria on Friday.“We reiterate our call to business and labour to work together to find solutions, so that we can revert to the primary task at hand – to build the country, build the economy and improve the quality of life.“We need to create the right climate, environment and ideas to develop our economy,” Zuma said. “Urgent steps are needed to avoid an economic downturn.”Measures to stimulate economic growthHe encouraged stakeholders to come up with new measures to stimulate economic growth.The government recently adopted a massive infrastructure plan that is expected to transform the country’s economic landscape and strengthen the delivery of basic services to the population.“We have various other packages to boost manufacturing and to support job creation in general … There is a lot that we can do, and we need those ideas today so that we can develop a workable framework,” Zuma said.“We need a partnership based on clear commitments and actions by each of us. We have begun to do some work on what government can do… but we cannot succeed if we rely only on government. We need a joint response. That is why we have assembled this leadership team here today.”Call for end to violence in strikesThe meeting, which was attended by the ministers from the economic and security clusters, also included the presidents of Business Unity South Africa, the Black Business Council, labour organisations Cosatu, Fedusa, Nactu, and Nedlac’s top brass.Although the leaders welcomed the end of the three-week truck drivers’ strike and efforts to resolve the strikes in the platinum, gold and coal mining industries, they expressed grave concern over the lawlessness and the escalation of violent strikes in some sectors.They called on the law enforcement agencies to act firmly against these elements, pledging their cooperation in talks to end strikes in the mining industry.Speaking at the end of the meeting, Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Minister Collins Chabane said the parties agreed that there was a need to speed up the fight against poverty, inequality and unemployment in the country.“The parties agreed to take steps to improve public and investor confidence in the economy and to promote social stability using their respective resources and capacities to build a partnership for development,” he said.Concerning Marikana, the parties agreed to support the commission of inquiry and urged people to participate freely in the commission. They said law enforcement agencies had to assist in ensuring the right environment for people to participate, with the support of the community.Source: read more

After that time, development is not expected while the disturbance moves north-northeastward and eventually merges with another frontal system. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall and possible flooding can be expected across the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and portions of the Dominican Republic tonight and Wednesday.

Magnetic Media is informed by both the Culture Director and the Office of the Premier that they are thrilled to have had a Maskanoo Parade without incident; and saddened by the death of the Blue Hills resident. I quote David Bowen, Culture Director: I was informed that persons were illegally using the name and logo of Maskanoo to promote a party to make money off the success of Maskanoo which officially ended at 12 midnight. Dec 26th. Any event after midnightthat claimed to be Maskanoo related is false and not sanctioned by TCHTA, the Dept of Culture, the Ministry of Culture or the Maskanoo Committee.” In fact Bowen adds: “These persons who organized and promoted the party should be held accountable for both the death of this young man and for the illegal use of the Maskanoo name and logo.” The Premier’s Office supports these sentiments, explaining: “Thankfully the Maskanoo celebrations went off with no incident, however we are saddened by the news that the night did not end completely well, with the news of the unfortunate passing of the young man, but this had no relation to the Maskanoo event and should not be reported in the media to give any an impression that the event was linked in any shape or form to the Maskanoo celebration,” from Permanent Secretary, Wesley Clerveaux.

Ambassador Cuban Delegation Meet Top Bahamian Businesses at Palm Cay Captains Table

first_img Recommended for you Bi-lateral talks with Bahamas to resume, UK gives green light to high-level TCI delegation Bahamian music legend gunned down at home in Turks and Caicos Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, 06 Sept 2015 – The cucumber mojitos were served on linen-draped trays and the white-gloved waiters quietly whisked plates to and fro, but make no mistake about it. The real meat of a recent evening at Palm Cay Club & Marina was serious business as Cuba and The Bahamas began talks about how they could work together to create a dual-destination product to attract a tourist market that is expected to explode as Cuba prepares to open its doors to millions.The event, the first in a series called The Captain’s Table aimed at bringing business and civic leaders together with a noteworthy guest of honour, was held September 2. It was the first day of the Cuban delegation’s visit to The Bahamas and the private setting was designed for exploratory overtures.“We wanted to create an opportunity for business representatives and a few top hoteliers and tour operators to meetwith an impressive delegation from Cuba in an environment that afforded all parties the chance to talk openly about their interests and to see where those interests might overlap,” said organizer Diane Phillips. “The members’ lounge at Palm Cay was perfect. The privacy allowed people to speak freely and to find common ground on which they could work together. As a dual destination, The Bahamas and Cuba will be a winning combination. And the Cuban delegation saw that immediately – it was not an either-or, but a let’s work it out so we can work together to make this happen.”The delegation, led by Cuban Ambassador Ernesto Guzman, included the General Director, and other top-ranking persons from the Ministry of Tourism of Cuba and from Havanatur, along with Yoslaidy Clemente Lopez of the Cuban Embassy in The Bahamas.“The opportunity offered by the Captain’s Table to facilitate the exchange between Cuban and Bahamian business men and companies involved in the tourism industry was unique for both sides,” said the Ambassador. “The evening allowed us to get to know the existing potential in our countries for the development and expansion of an industry that can catapult other areas of interest such as agriculture, health and education among others. I think that the Cuban and Bahamians people will benefit of any project intelligently developed by our countries in an unforeseeable way.”Guests knew in advance that there would be no politicians, no media and no more than 18 at the single table to allow for free flow of conversation and exchange of ideas. According to Palm Cay General Manager Richard Browning, the Captain’s Table concept struck a chord.“We see the Captain’s Table as a great initiative for like-minded business people in The Bahamas to meet in a relaxed environment, an attractive setting that offers intimacy and encourages openness,” said Browning. “This Cuban visit has clearly proven that there is a desire for this type of get together.”Among those at the dinner were Gowon Bowe, Chairman, Bahamas Chamber of Commerce; John Conway, General Manager, One&Only Ocean Club; Ed Fields, Sr Vice President, Atlantis; Paolo Garzaroli, Graycliff (and Historic Charles Towne); Gary Williams, Sandals consultant representing Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart; Youlanda Deveaux, Regional Vice President, Caribbean and Central America, Mandara Spa Bahamas Ltd, Steiner Resort Division; Simone Morgan-Gomez, Partner, Callenders law firm; Chris Ryan, Chief Financial Officer, NAD; Richard Browning, General Manager, Palm Cay Development, John Gomez, Cable Bahamas, A.J. Saunders, Majestic Tours and the Cuban delegation, including Richard Boadi, Sales Manager, Havanatur Bahamas. Attorney Morgan Gomez, who is bilingual, was among several who spoke Spanish. “One of the things that made the evening so magical was the openness,” said Ms. Deveaux. “I know for our part we are very interested in exploring the luxury spa experience in Cuba. There were hoteliers who were quite frank about being interested in putting their brand in Cuba as soon as they reasonably can. Just about everyone present saw opportunities not only for them to invest in what will be the new hotspot for Caribbean tourism because it has been off limits to Americans for so long, but to work with key players in Cuba to present a marketing strategy that will appeal to those who think a trip to both places is a better choice than a visit to either one on its own.”Palm Cay is a nearly 70-acre development on New Providence’s southeastern coast and includes an array of single family residences, townhomes and condominiums along with the island’s largest marina in terms of boat slips, a multi-storey restaurant and clubhouse with members’ lounge, swimming pools, tennis and 1,200 feet of pristine white sand beach.
