Beginning of the end

first_imgDear Editor,It has been reported in the media that after three years of mismanagement and continuous heavy operating losses, the Government has transferred control of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) — Guyana’s largest agricultural industry and employer — from the Ministry of Agriculture to the Ministry of Finance, where it will be managed by the National Industrial and Commercial Investment Limited (NICIL) and its Special Purposes Unit (SPU).NICIL/SPU has been mandated to ensure that GuySuCo is returned to profitability, and NICIL/SPU has wasted no time in accomplishing this assignment by firing GuySuCo’s long-time chairman, Professor Clive Thomas, and its board of directors, and replacing them with a new board, with Mr Heath-London as the newly appointed Chairman.The track record of the newly appointed team suggests that they have little or no experience in formulating plans and executing policies to turn around an agriculture-based company in deep financial trouble and plagued with a host of diverse technical, management and agricultural problems. Nevertheless, it seems that the way forward for GuySuCo is still being determined, particularly with respect to the management of its three operating estates and privatization/leasing/selling of the assets of the remaining four.Today’s prices show that sugar is being sold on the world market at less than US$0.14/lb, while it is costing GuySuCo an estimated US$0.40/lb to produce. To eliminate this differential and return GuySuCo to profitability, the cane fields will have to be converted for full-scale mechanization (which is not possible with the existing fields’ layout); improved cane varieties would have to be planted for higher yields of TC/TS; and there would have to be modernization of the manufacturing process and farming equipment for higher production and efficiencies. The existing acreage under cultivation would also have to be increased to reduce overhead costs.Two major constraints among others have prevented GuySuCo from implementing programmes to return itself to profitability — lack of timely capital investments to upgrade and diversify its rundown facilities and equipment, and failure to train its personnel to acquire the knowledge and skills for diversified manufacturing. This was clearly evident at the Skeldon estate, where an ultra-modern factory was poorly operated and managed, while anticipated cane production increase never materialized to meet the factory’s designed processing capacity.There was also the half-hearted attempt at field mechanization, and the failed diversification efforts at Wales after the estate had closed.A loan of $30 billion being sought by NICIL to upgrade the three operating estates (Albion, Blairmont, Uitvlugt) with the intent of returning them to profitability is a ‘pipe dream’ for reasons stated above. SPU will be seeking a loan of about $15 billion to refurbish the four closed estates (Skeldon, Rose Hall, Enmore, Wales) to make them attractive for investors to buy/lease, as was recommended by NICIL’s consultant, PwC, based on the premise that to obtain premium prices for the closed estates, they should be presented to investors as going concerns, functional at both the field and factory levels.This is likely to be a ‘no go’, as investors are aware of the Government’s dilemma and will be looking at the estates as ‘fire sales’, and then convert their acquired bounty of abandoned sugar lands into real estate development and other financially lucrative deals for quick profitable turnovers (as Houston/Versailles Estates have done) and avoid venturing into sugar manufacturing with limited or no growth and questionable profitability.It is evident that the Government has lost its way, groping in the dark with no clear coherent plan to return GuySuCo to profitability, nor does it know how to bite the bullet and wind down the industry and find/create jobs for the laid-off workers.Guyana’s Treasury cannot continue to subsidize GuySuCo indefinitely at the expense of other urgently needed national programmes. The adverse social and economic effects of laid-off sugar workers will sooner or later spill over into the communities at large. The growing crime rate in Georgetown and other urban areas with high unemployment clearly indicates what could happen when large segments of the society are unemployed/unskilled and are wandering around.Yours faithfully,Charles Sohanlast_img read more

House Cuts Number of Proposed Seats in Affirmative Action Bill

admin No Comments

first_imgThe House of Representatives has endorsed the establishment of seven Special Legislative Constituencies for which an additional seven members would be elected, in addition to the already 73, totaling 81members in the House.The motion indicated that there would be five seats for women to be divided among five regions; while the youth and persons living with disabilities will have their respective seats.Deputy Speaker Hans M. Barchue broke the tie to concur with the Senate on the Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation Act after a vote of 18-18, for which some of the lawmakers accused Senior Stenographer Conmicks Chea of inflating the votes in favor of the pro-Tyler lawmakers to compel a draw.The Senate’s version of the Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation provides the establishment of 21 Special Legislative Constituencies for which an additional 21 members of the House of Representatives shall be elected – with 15 seats for women, 3 seats each for the youth and persons living with disabilities.The House’s concurrence, which has altered the Senate’s account, would compel a Conference Committee comprised of both Houses to reconcile the Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation Act.However, Maryland County Representative Dr. Bhofal Chambers has filed a motion of reconsideration for the vote on the passage of the Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation Act, which would be considered today, Friday, September 30, in a Special Session. It may be recalled that on August 25, it was reported that the Senate unanimously passed the “Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation Act of 2016,” which was forwarded to the House of Representative for concurrence.At Wednesday’s public hearing, Gender Minister Julia Duncan Cassell told the 28-member House’s Joint Committee that the Affirmative Action Bill aims to elevate the level of equitable representation and participation in the governance process. The Joint Committee comprisedGender, Judiciary, Good Governance and Election & Inauguration.The Gender Minister reminded the Legislature that Article 5 (a) of the Constitution empowers the Legislature to enact laws that promote the realization of social justice and increase citizens’ access for political and economic participation.“There are international instruments to which Liberia is a signatory and acceded to, which call for the enactment of affirmative action legislation for the empowerment of women, youth and persons living with disabilities,” she said.“ECOWAS and AU Protocols, CEDAW, CRPD, the Beijing Declaration, and the African Youth Charter are some of the international instruments supportive of affirmative action to accelerate their participation in politics for adequate representation.”The National Chairperson of the National Civil Society Council, Madam Frances R. Deigh Greaves; the Vice President for Association of Female Lawyers in Liberia (AFELL), Atty. Nadia S. Kamara; Mrs. Daintowon Domah Payebaye, representing the disabled community; and Mr. Amos Williams, Deputy Secretary General for Programs of the Federation of Liberian Youths (FLY) are among Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) that also urged the Legislature to enact the Affirmative Action Bill.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

William R. Tolbert III. Unfortunately for us, he didn’t take part as he had just fallen ill when the date for the workshop arrived,” the PUL President stated. The Union will release a statement today on Prof. Wolo’s passing.Before his passing, Prof. Wolo, who was in his early 70s, served in many media capacities including Former Deputy Minister for Administration, Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism; Former Director-General, Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS); and Former Executive Producer, LBS.He also served as a former presenter of the LBS post newscast daily inspirational program, “Thought for Today”; Former Community Relations Head, Liberia Rural Communications Network; and Former Producer, ELCM (Catholic Radio now Radio Veritas).

Clubs ranked by the number of times they have claimed trophy doubles

admin No Comments

first_img Joint 5th. Nottingham Forest have won two trophy doubles – With Brian Clough in charge, Forest won the League title and League Cup in 1977/78, and the European Cup and League Cup in 1978/79. They won the European Cup again in 1980, but lost the League Cup final that year. Manchester United and Chelsea are chasing trophy doubles as the 2016/17 season enters its final stages.The Red Devils have already won the League Cup and are in the semi-finals of the Europa League.Chelsea, meanwhile, are favourites to land both the Premier League title and the FA Cup.Neither club are strangers to trophy doubles, as you’ll see in the slideshow above, where we reveal the double kings of English football. 2. Chelsea have won six trophy doubles – The Blues have become specialists at picking up multiple trophies. In 1997/98 with Gianluca Vialli in charge, Chelsea won the League Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup (pictured above). Jose Mourinho guided the club to Premier League and League Cup doubles in 2004/05 and 2014/15, plus an FA Cup and League Cup double in 2006/07, while Roberto Di Matteo was manager when Chelsea won the Champions League and FA Cup in 2011/12. Carlo Ancelotti was the boss when Chelsea won their first Premier League and FA Cup double, in 2009/10. 11 Joint 6th. Tottenham Hotspur have won one trophy double – click right to count down to number one – Spurs became the first club to win the League title and FA Cup double in the 20th century, clinching both competitions in the 1960/61 season. 11 11 Joint 6th. Preston North End have won one trophy double – Preston claimed the first ever Football League title in 1888/89 without losing a game, adding the FA Cup without conceding a goal for good measure. Joint 6th. Aston Villa have won one trophy double – Villa became the second club to claim the League and FA Cup double, winning both in 1896/97 (that is the 1897 FA Cup final pictured above). 11 11 Joint 6th. Leeds United have won one trophy double – Under the management of Don Revie, Leeds became the first English club to claim a European and domestic trophy in the same season, winning the 1967/68 League Cup and Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, a forerunner of the modern Europa League. Joint 5th. Manchester City have won two trophy doubles – City won a double of League Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1969/70, and the Premier League and League Cup double in 2013/14. 1. Liverpool have won seven trophy doubles – The Reds experienced a remarkable period of success in the 1970s and 1980s, kicking off with Bill Shankly’s double of League title and UEFA Cup in 1972/73. Bob Paisley oversaw the same trophy double in 1975/76, then claimed the League title and European Cup in 1976/77. Paisley also won the European Cup and League Cup in 1980/81, followed by League title and League Cup doubles in the next two campaigns. Joe Fagan won a treble of title, European Cup and League Cup in 1983/84, though we’re not counting that success in this list of doubles (as with Gerard Houllier’s cup treble, achieved in 2000/01). His successor, Kenny Dalglish, claimed the Reds’ first League title and FA Cup double in 1985/86. Joint 3rd. Manchester United have won four trophy doubles – The Red Devils are the only club to have won the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup in the same season, but we haven’t included trophies won in treble campaigns in this list, which purely comprises trophy doubles.

In 2007/08 they claimed a glorious Champions League and Premier League double, then a season later won the Premier League and League Cup. 11 Joint 3rd. Arsenal have won four trophy doubles – The Gunners clinched the league title at White Hart Lane in 1971 before beating Liverpool in the FA Cup five days later thanks to Charlie George’s winner in extra-time.

Arsene Wenger arrived in north London and guided the club to a memorable Premier League and FA Cup triumph in 1998. And the Frenchman repeated the feat again in 2002, as wins over Chelsea in Cardiff and a win at Old Trafford completed a memorable campaign. 11 Joint 6th. Everton have won one trophy double – Everton won the League title and European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1984/85, narrowly missing out on a treble when they lost the FA Cup final to Manchester United. 11 11 11 11last_img read more
