The business organisation will make the case for increasing the threshold for payments to £10,500, putting £363 back in the pockets of dual-income households and raising living standards across the country.The CBI will also call for an extension of free childcare and a package of measures to boost productivity in the UK.“To ease pressure on families and people on low incomes, we want immediate action, including cutting employee National Insurance and making childcare more affordable,” said CBI boss John Cridland.A Treasury spokesperson said: “As the CBI make clear, it’s not possible to create a sustainable rise in living standards with short-term sticking plaster fixes. That is why we must keep working through the plan that is building a resilient economy.” whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe Wrap’Small Axe’: Behind the Music Everyone Grooved On in Steve McQueen’sThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Production rise but Lonmin still swings to a loss

first_img whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp MINING group Lonmin beat market expectations, despite falling to a pre-tax loss of $77m (£49m) in the six months to 31 March. The group, which specialises in platinum, posted a profit of $26m in the first half of 2014.The company also saw net debt grow in the period, to $282m, which it attributed to disruption caused by smelter shutdowns, while revenue fell to $508m from $578m. Lonmin boss Ben Magara said the firm was continuing with its efforts to cut costs and preserve cash, in a bid to “navigate the effects” of a low platinum group metals pricing situation. Capital expenditure during the first half was $65m, compared with $46m in the same period of last year, while capex for the full year has been reduced to $160m from $185m.Magara also said he was encouraged by Lonmin’s “ongoing efforts to manage the controllables,” including engagement with the unions to reduce outgoings such as labour costs. “We are working well within our debt facilities, and this position will improve further during [the second half] as stockpiles unwind,” he added.Meanwhile, quarterly platinum production grew in the three months to 31 March, from 60,417 oz to 122,094 oz. Analysts at Numis said the company was “making some progress in a tough operating environment,” but added that it still has much work to do.Lonmin shares were down by 1.06 per cent yesterday.

News / CMA CGM brings in Air Belgium to boost fledgling air cargo operation

first_img“You certainly couldn’t compete in a Panalpina-type environment – you’d lose your shirt. The best bet would be a deal with DHL or FedEx for the aircraft.”However, another source said the aircraft was better than nothing.“Those [aircraft] aren’t so bad when you consider that a lot of markets are being served by passenger freighters, which are less efficient than cargo aircraft. Everyone loves a 747-8F at the moment, they are hot right now.”Both sources said the success – or not – of the operation would likely define CMA CGM’s future in air freight.“The most important questions for me are, will CMA continue to bring more [planes] and connect more markets, and will Ceva, via CMA, roll out its own fleet over the time? A lot of this might be answered if the two planes operate successfully.”Both sources also suggest routes will likely entail China-Europe, initially. Air Belgium currently operates passenger flights to French Caribbean destinations, but has been eyeing Chinese operations. One source told The Loadstar it had Chinese financial backers.Air Belgium last week announced it was to take on four A330-200 freighters itself, also previously operated by Qatar Airways Cargo, which is moving to an all-Boeing freighter fleet. Air Belgium said it hoped to have six freighters by the end of this year. The first two should be operational by March, with the first based at Liege Airport.Air Belgium was founded in 2016 by Niky Terzakis, formerly of ASL Airlines and TNT Airways, and launched its first passenger flight in 2018.CMA CGM’s deal with the fledgling airline follows a planned investment in a 30% share of Groupe Dubreuil announced last September, worth €50m. The two companies said the investment was prompted by Groupe Dubreuil Aéro’s need to expand its freight business, following the collapse of passenger numbers since the onset of the pandemic.Groupe Dubreuil Aéro owns two airlines, Air Caraïbes and French Bee, with a combined fleet of 14 long-haul aircraft, including eight A350s, and its air freight operations are managed by subsidiary Hi Line Cargo.However, the investment plan has reportedly hit a bump in the road. Air Caraïbes has taken a public position against French state aid given to Corsair, which is said to have created tensions between the  presidents of the shipping line and aviation group. A decision is expected this month. ID 67235468 © Ifeelstock | Dreamstime.com By Alex Lennane 03/02/2021center_img CMA CGM is strengthening its position in the air freight market with a CMI deal on two ex-Qatar Airways A330-200 freighters, according to sources close to the company.The shipping line owner of Ceva has signed Air Belgium to operate the aircraft and has reportedly also set up a subsidiary, CMA CGM Air Cargo.One senior aviation source indicated that the aircraft type would be difficult to operate sustainably for general cargo.“The real question here is whether these aircraft are for Ceva – and whether it can make the A330F work for general cargo. This aircraft is not viable for standard air freight – only carriers like DHL and express companies want an A330F.last_img read more

CU’s Center of the American West Takes on Immigration with ‘Words to Stir the Soul’

first_img Published: Nov. 4, 2008 Immigration is the subject of the 12th annual Words to Stir the Soul event to be presented by the Center of the American West at the University of Colorado at Boulder on Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. in Old Main Chapel.The event presents readers from all walks of life reading aloud from great works of Western literature. This year readers will select readings that reveal the people and stories of immigration in the West rather than familiar and polarized disputes over policies. Patty Limerick, professor of history and director of CAW, will emcee the evening’s events and also will participate.”We’re going to do a center report on immigration at some point, and this is a heated topic,” said Limerick. “So we want to start out grounded. This isn’t to say that our conclusions for an immigration project are anywhere near completion. But we want to begin with a look at the human reality of immigration.”Readers will include Manuel Ramos, author of Chicano literature and director of advocacy for Colorado Legal Services, reporter Bruce Finley of The Denver Post and columnist Tina Griego of the Rocky Mountain News. About a dozen people will read at the event.While offering thought-provoking perspectives on important topics, Words to Stir the Soul also is an enjoyable occasion for both the participants and the audience, Limerick said.”We know from having done this for many years that adults love to be read to,” she said. “After about 8 or 9 years old, people stop reading to you and there you are stuck with a printed page, or worse, the computer screen.”Each reader chooses his or her own material based on the topic, Limerick said.”They have gone to great trouble to pick passages that are worth reading aloud,” she said.For a complete list of readers visit events.centerwest.org. For information call 303-492-4879.The event was made possible through the generosity of John and Tish Winsor.

Private Sector Urged to take Advantage of Trade Arrangements

first_imgRelatedPrivate Sector Urged to take Advantage of Trade Arrangements Private Sector Urged to take Advantage of Trade Arrangements Foreign AffairsJuly 16, 2010 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Hon. Dr. Kenneth Baugh, has called on the private sector to seek to take advantage of opportunities created through trade arrangements such as the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) and the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas.Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Hon. Dr. Kenneth Baugh, makes a point during his presentation in the 2010/11 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on Tuesday (July 13).“In the implementation of trade agreements, the private sector must find creative ways of tapping into the existing potential to expand our productive base, increase productivity levels, and penetrate new markets, buttressed, of course, by Government action to unblock bureaucratic log-jams,” he said.Minister Baugh was making his contribution to the 2010/11 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on Tuesday (July 13).He said his Ministry is prepared to lend all necessary support to Jamaican enterprises in maintaining and achieving market access and providing information about these agreements and negotiations.He noted that the Government is determined to seek every opportunity to expand the country’s trade capacity to promote sustainable economic growth and development.“The direct corollary to the negotiation of a trade agreement is the development and expansion of our productive base to enable us to take advantage of the market access for goods and services, which is absolutely indispensable. We can only achieve economic growth through increased production and more investments, particularly in the area of services,” he pointed out.As it relates negotiations, in which Jamaica is engaged, Dr. Baugh said that the country is actively involved in trade issues at the multilateral, regional and bilateral levels, and will continue to be fully engaged in the multilateral negotiating process within the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) Doha Development Round.Jamaica’s interest in these talks, he said, is the development of a rules-based system, which takes account of the development needs of small and vulnerable economies.“It is very important that we forge and form alliances with other small economies and middle income countries, because it is the power of these alliances that can assist us to make the weight and the concerns of small countries felt at the level of international negotiations,” he noted.In the meantime, he said that the Government is engaged in preparations for Jamaica’s 2011 Trade Policy Review (TPR), which is the country’s third such review in the WTO.“We very much welcome this in-depth and comprehensive review of our national trade policy (framework), which helps us to evaluate our achievements in implementing trade policy,” Dr. Baugh said.
