Major sacrifices will have to be made for rushed Brexit trade deal, report claims

first_img“Every EU member state will have a vote and veto over the deal – which will make negotiations more complicated for the UK. Johnson may have to choose between making major concessions to the EU or walking away without a deal,” the think tank argues. The Institute for Government believes Boris Johnson and team will have to accept only “a narrow agreement” can be reached in order to secure a deal before transition ends in December 2020, meaning services is unlikely to be covered in time. Tags: Brexit Monday 13 January 2020 10:05 am Downing Street has insisted that it will not extend the transition period beyond 2020, going so far as to enshrine the date in the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which reaches the Lords today. Catherine Neilan Rushing a post-Brexit trade deal to meet the end-of-year deadline will require major sacrifices to be made and will leave businesses with just weeks to adapt to the new trading terms, a new report claims. Share But if Johnson persists in this, the time for negotiation will limit the scope of any agreement to a goods-only free trade agreement, the IfG argues. Major sacrifices will have to be made for rushed Brexit trade deal, report claims whatsapp The government also needs to pass at least six pieces of legislation to establish new UK policies for agriculture, fisheries and immigration. Show Comments ▼ British Brexit negotiator David Frost (L) arrives for a meeting with British ambassador to the EU Tim Barrow (AFP via Getty Images) Joe Owen, Institute for Government programme director, said: “If the government’s priority is speed, it will need to make some important sacrifices – on the level of ambition in any deal and the time for both government and businesses to adapt to it. “The end of the transition marks the point at which the country will need to undertake a major change – rushing it will cause disruption.” whatsapp Main image: Getty Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily FunnyUndoFinanceChatterViewers Had To Look Away When This Happened On Live TVFinanceChatterUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoNoteableyJulia Robert’s Daughter Turns 16 And Looks Just Like Her MomNoteableyUndoMisterStoryWoman files for divorce after seeing this photoMisterStoryUndozenherald.comDolly Finally Took Off Her Wig, Fans Gaspedzenherald.comUndoNinjaJournalistMichael Jordan’s Divorce Settlement Has Finally Been Revealed.NinjaJournalistUndoJournalistateTeacher Wears Dress Everyday, Mom Sets Up CamJournalistateUndoPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

Budget talks are quiet as Walker projects optimism

first_imgShare this story: Business | Energy & Mining | State GovernmentBudget talks are quiet as Walker projects optimismApril 19, 2016 by Andrew Kitchenman, KTOO and Alaska Public Media Share:Progress on the state government budget has slowed to a crawl this week, but Gov. Bill Walker remains hopeful the Legislature will reach an agreement on an oil and gas tax bill that’s at the center of budget talks.Walker says there are good ideas for reaching an agreement, including provisions in the Senate. That bill would end credits for small Cook Inlet producers. But the Senate version wouldn’t save the state as much as Walker’s proposal — a fact the governor noted on Monday.“I thought it was pretty good,” Walker said of the Senate bill. “It’s pretty close to where we are and, you know, it’s not a matter of it has to be exactly my plan necessarily. But whatever we don’t do in that regard  — dollar-wise — we need to find that someplace else.”Republicans lead large majorities in both of the Legislature’s chambers, but the House Minority has leverage. That’s because a three-quarters vote is needed to spend money from the Constitutional Budget Reserve.Rep. Chris Tuck, D-Anchorage, takes questions from reporters. Rep. Sam Kito III, D-Juneau, stands to his right. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)House Minority Leader Rep. Chris Tuck said the Majority has to decide what it wants in an oil and gas tax package. Speaker Mike Chenault sent the House bill to the Rules Committee last week.“We’re united in our side on what we want to see. But the reason why that bill got kicked back over to Rules is because it would have failed on the floor, and it would have failed for different reasons,” Tuck said.“But it still would have failed.  We want to keep that alive. We want to keep things working. Chenault has, um, a lot of different characters in his caucus. He’s working it. He’s trying to come up with a solution. And we’re waiting to see what they’re going to agree to amongst themselves to see whether or not we’re going to agree to that.”Members of the Republican-led House Majority caucus have been discussing oil and gas tax credits in private meetings.Progress is being made on a separate area of the budget — one that will affect all Alaskans. The House Finance Committee is discussing a bill that would draw billions of dollars from the Permanent Fund earnings reserve. The bill also would cut Permanent Fund dividends in half.The latest version of the Permanent Fund bill includes a provision that would limit fund spending on the government as oil revenues rise. Once oil revenues reach $3.1 billion, no money would be spent from the Permanent Fund.House Finance Co-chairman Steve Thompson, R-Fairbanks, noted that if the Legislature doesn’t take any action on the Permanent Fund, the earnings fund would be exhausted in a few years. This would eliminate all dividends.Walker said there’s common ground on the Permanent Fund issue.“I think that’s moving along pretty well,” Walker said. “I don’t think we’re that far apart on that at this point. So, I think it’s getting much closer. I’m quite optimistic about that piece of it coming into play this year.”Construction has begun on the Capitol building in Juneau. Only the finance and conference committees — as well as House Rules — are scheduled to meet Wednesday.last_img read more

News / Drewry warns of more slow-steaming and void sailings as carriers absorb capacity

first_imgBy Mike Wackett 16/04/2014 Container supply chain and liner shipping analyst Drewry has calculated that without the combined supply adjustments from slow steaming and the blanked sailings, global container line capacity would have increased by as much as 40% since 2008.This compares with the 22% growth that has actually been made available to the market.As an example of how slow steaming has enabled carriers to absorb capacity, Drewry estimates that on the current 22 weekly westbound Asia-north Europe services, there is a requirement for around 250 vessels, averaging in size at just over 11,000teu. But without slow steaming, each loop would have deployed eight ships instead of the current 11, which means it would have needed 180 ships in the system, 70 fewer vessels than today.Indeed, Drewry has found these tactics meant that last year ocean carriers effectively took out nearly 3m teu of supply – without which, the disastrous financial losses in the sector would have been much worse.Unlike during the height of the global financial crisis – which led to more than 600 containerships being laid-up through the end of 2009 and beginning of 2010 – Drewry said such mothballing was not now an option – carriers prefer to keep vessels trading, even at a loss, so long as they contribute to operating costs.Laying-up is a “last resort” and still carries a considerable expense. Drewry Maritime Research has recorded 196 ships, equivalent to 553,000teu, are currently in lay-up, which represents just 3% of the global fleet.More slow steaming and the selective blanking of sailings is the key carrier strategy this year and beyond. Drewry said the latter was particularly useful to “temporarily inflate load factors” and push utilisation levels to 90% and above, thereby underscoring general rate increases.However, it also argued that this policy, which increases the risk of cargo rollovers during peak periods, “is at times excessive and detrimental to shippers” a view echoed by several major shippers and beneficial cargo owners over the past year.Moreover, Drewry suggested that there was worse in store for shippers with a further 30 ship deliveries of 13,300-19,000teu size due this year.This tide of new tonnage will force carriers to “intensify their efforts”, said Drewry, and it warned: “Shippers should prepare for longer transits and more frequent use of blank voyages.”The analyst’s bleak outlook for shippers was reinforced by Alphaliner executive consultant Tan Hua Joo at the TOC Container Supply Chain event in Singapore last week.He said: “It is all about cost – in their [carriers] quest for cost cuts, it is inevitable that service suffers.“With the formation of large alliances, there is a further commodisation of the industry’s services, and this can lead to port stays that are sometimes extended over days,” he added.last_img read more

Des nouvelles technologies utilisées pour traquer les appels internationaux

first_img North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China Ordinary Pyongyang residents have not received government rations since mid-April By Choi Song Min – 2015.03.11 9:28am La Corée du Nord utilise des appareils à lapointe de la technologie afin d’améliorer la surveillance et la détection desmobiles et ainsi empêcher que des informations ne soient diffusées hors desfrontières. Plus grave encore, ces nouveaux appareils viennent renforcerl’arsenal répressif déjà particulièrement sévère visant toute personne prise entrain de passer un appel vers l’étranger, un acte strictement interdit par laloi nord-coréenne. Une source du comté de Musan, dans la provincedu Hamgyŏng du Nord, a déclaré à Daily NK ce 5 mars que « les peines pourles appels vers l’étranger ont été renforcées. Une personne interpellée pour lapremière fois se voit infliger de « stricts avertissements », selonles nouvelles mesures, ainsi qu’une amende. Tout récidiviste est condamné à unepeine minimum d’un an de travaux forcés. Les officiels de l’antenne locale duministère de la Sécurité du Peuple (MSP) ont annoncé ces nouvelles mesures lorsdes rassemblements régionaux d’inminban (unités populaires) et dans lesentreprises d’État. Ils ont précisé que quiconque passerait de tels appels versl’étranger serait inévitablement repéré grâce à un système ultradéveloppéd’enregistrement vocal (permettant d’enregistrer tant le contenu que les voixdes participants à la conversation) qui accompagne ces nouveauxappareils. » 30 habitants ont déjà été interpellés.« Le nombre de personnes arrêtées pour avoir passé des appels versl’étranger s’élève à 30 depuis l’annonce de la nouvelle politique pénale »a expliqué la source, qui a ajouté que les récidivistesinterpellés seront certainement envoyés en camp de rééducation et utilisés parle régime comme exemples. Cette action intentée par les autorités est ladernière en date dans la perpétuelle bataille qu’elles mènent pour éradiquerl’usage de téléphones illégaux par des habitants qui mettent au point d’innombrablesmoyens d’éviter ces interdictions. Comme l’a récemment révélé Daily NK, desdétecteurs d’ondes radio de fabrication allemande, et passablement chers, ontété déployés le long des frontières, en remplacement des modèles de fabricationchinoise, afin d’empêcher les riverains de téléphoner vers l’étranger. Cedéploiement s’est accru de façon exponentielle, les détecteurs allemandsremplaçants les antiques modèles chinois sur toute la frontière selon lasource, laquelle a ajouté que « jusqu’à l’année dernière, on pouvait allersur les collines ou dans les villages voisins pour passer un appel, maisdésormais, il faut marcher au moins trois heures dans la montagne afin depouvoir téléphoner. En conséquence, le prix des téléphones mobiles de fabricationchinoise a été multiplié par quatre, passant de 40.000 wons (5 dollars) àenviron 100 yuans. De façon prévisible, les riverainsinsatisfaits expriment leur mécontentement à l’égard de l’État, plus enclin àarrêter ses citoyens qu’à améliorer leurs vies. La source, évoquant dessentiments qu’elle dit être emblématiques de la majorité de la population, aexpliqué que ce ressentiment ne fera qu’exacerber une culture de la corruptiondéjà omniprésente, et conclu en ajoutant que « les gens pointent le fait,de façon sarcastique, que dix soldats ne suffisent déjà pas pour éloigner unseul voleur. Les gens finiront par trouver de nouveaux moyens d’éviter larépression. » RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR AvatarChoi Song Min News Des nouvelles technologies utilisées pour traquer les appels internationauxcenter_img News SHARE News Facebook Twitter News Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department storelast_img read more
