Travel Barometer takes the temperature of Australian tourism

0 Comment

first_imgThe results, which were compiled from interviews and calls with 200 travel agents, provide a snapshot of the thinking of travel agents around Australia about issues facing the Australian tourism industry. The study also found that the number of tourism agents has not grown from 4500 for the last 10 years. The nature of travel purchases is also changing according to the study – the Australian intermediary market is now worth AUD$3 billion per year and has been growing 29 per cent over the past few years. The results of the Australian Travel Agent Barometer Survey for September-October 2013 have been released. 66 per cent of agents do not make a profit above AUD $100,000 per annum and their average margins are also quite low – at 1.7 per cent.center_img Key among the findings of the Survey was the strong level of confidence about the industry’s future – with 80 per cent saying that they believe business is good right now and that any downturns are cyclical. Lastly, staff retention also seems to be positive – 80 per cent of consultants intend to stay in the industry the next five years. Source = ETB News: T.N.last_img read more

first_img – / 20 0 Comments   Share   Another week, another workmanlike win on the road for the Arizona Cardinals.Carson Palmer threw two touchdown passes, running backs Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor were big factors on offense and the defense played well in the Cardinals’ 24-13 win over the Oakland Raiders Sunday. The key to the win, according to general manager Steve Keim, was offensive balance.“You think about the balance we had offensively, I can’t remember a time we ran the ball five more times than we threw it,” Keim told Doug and Wolf Monday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “To see Andre and Stepfan have so much success on the ground and to see the balance we had — you know, it wasn’t perfect by any stretch. LISTEN: Steve Keim, Arizona Cardinals GM Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories “Andre, as well as he played, had two critical drops — one being on a third-down conversion that would have been big for us. But we played well as a whole.”The Cardinals ran the ball 37 times for 123 yards on the day while throwing it 31 times for 242 yards. It was the first time the Cardinals had more rushing attempts than passes since their 17-10 Week 16 win over the Seattle Seahawks last season. In that contest, Arizona ran 43 times while throwing only 25.With the win, the Cardinals move their record to an NFC West-best 5-1 and picked up a game on both Seattle and San Francisco, who both lost Sunday. Despite the lack of flashy numbers, Bruce Arians’ team just continues to win.But how?“That’s a good question,” Keim said. “I think it’s good coaching and certainly a locker room of guys that care about each other and are invested in the same goal.”The Cardinals return home to University of Phoenix Stadium next Sunday for a clash with the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles (5-1) at 1:05 p.m. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Your browser does not support the audio element.

Sale of Yanukovychs frozen assets linked to Cyprus firms

0 Comment

first_imgTwo Ukrainian oligarchs acquired Cyprus’s Quickpace Ltd, a company with $160m (€133m) in illicit frozen assets controlled by Ukraine’s ousted president Viktor Yanukovych, Aljazeera reported on Sunday.The two men were named as gas-tycoon Alexander Onyschenko and real estate operator Pavel Fuchs.Aljazeera, which cited an “unsigned contract” it obtained and other documents, said that the seller, Serhiy Kurchenko, known as Yanukovych’s “family wallet,” received $30m in cash in exchange plus other assets, including a private jet.According to the website of the Department of the Registrar of Companies and Official Receiver, the Limassol-based Quickpace operates in the real estate management and is today owned by the British Virgin Islands (BVI)-based Evermore Property Holdings Ltd after it acquired it in August 2015 from the Nicosia-based Prontoservus Ltd, a company linked to the law firm established by Polakis Sarris.Quickpace is also headquartered at the address of Proteas Management, a business services company affiliated with the Andreas Sofocleous & Co law firm.While Onyschenko, one of the two buyers in the deal, confirmed the participation of Fuchs and Kurchneko, he also denied that it had gone ahead, Aljazeera reported. Christina Sarris, a lawyer at the Polakis Sarris law firm said that the deal had indeed gone ahead, according to Aljazeera.The Qatari news television channel said that it also obtained a record of a $2m initial payment from a Barclays Bank account to a Russian-owned account at Latvia’s Norvic Banka. Fuchs is the owner of Dorchester International Incorporated, the parent company of Evermore Property Holdings, according to Aljazeera.It also reported that Quickpace held bonds and cash, all frozen by a Ukrainian judge on suspicion they were proceeds of crime, and added that trading frozen assets is illegal both in Ukraine and abroad.The value of frozen assets deemed the product of crime and traced to Yanukovych’s political friends is estimated at €1.5bn which is estimated to be only a fraction of the total. The frozen assets were held by companies in Cyprus, the UK, Panama, Belize and the BVI.“Any services provided by Prontoservus Limited, Byroco Nominees Limited -or by any individual connected to the said entities- with respect to the Cyprus company Quickpace Ltd were provided in full compliance with the applicable Cyprus law,” said Yorgos Trillides on behalf of Polakis Sarris & Co LLC in an email on Monday when requested for comment.Byroco Nominees is another firm affiliated to the Polakis Sarris law firm.A Central Bank of Cyprus official said that he could not immediately recall that Quickpace had any deposits frozen in Cyprus. Also, a search on the website of the Department of Company Registrar revealed no pending charges or mortgages. Mokas, the Law Office’s anti-money laundering squad, was not immediately available for comment. The Andreas Sofocleous law firm did not respond immediately when asked for comment.The buyers aimed to make a $130m profit by persuading a judge to unfreeze the Quickpace assets, Aljazeera reported citing “article 4.4” of the unsigned contract. Buyers would cooperate in “taking action to remove the arrest from the accounts”.Yanukovych, an ally of Russia’s president Vladimir Putin, fled Ukraine in February 2014 after months of popular unrest which security forces attempted to quell with lethal force. His overthrow angered Putin who in response ordered the seizure and annexation of the Crimean Peninsula, sparking a tsunami of US and EU sanctions in response.Russia is considered to be behind the unrest in the eastern part of Ukraine, inhabited by Russian-speaking Ukrainians.Aljazeera reported that the documents it obtained while they make no explicit reference to the former Ukrainian leader, “reveal how Yanukovich’s clan pumped stolen money into companies in Ukraine with bank accounts in Latvia and gradually passed it through dozens of offshore shell companies in Cyprus, Belize, BVI and other money-laundering hotspots including the UK”.In March 2014, Minister of Foreign Affairs Ioannis Kasoulides said that Cypriot authorities suspected that two Ukrainian nationals with assets in Cyprus could have embezzled public funds in their country.The full report and video are available here.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Bengaluru fail to break Chennai, Gaya, AFP The government scientist, Modi was supposed to be this Rube from Hicktown…instead we got a foreign policy PM This present government has a lot to do with the economic and political tipping points of India.When this Prime Minister took office he surprised a lot of people by turning out to be a foreign policy prime minister If you went by the Indian media’s general characterisation of him he was a Rube from Hicktown Yet it turned out that unbeknownst to many people over the decades he had spent a lot of time in this country (US) in China in Japan besides his more than a dozen years as the head of a large state (Gujarat) That was supposed to be his metier when he became the Prime Minister but right off the start he was a foreign policy Prime Minister and a very ambitious one I don’t think we’ve seen this kind of thrust on foreign policy since Pandit Nehru’s times This is despite three Prime Ministers since that time who had already served as foreign ministers This was at a time when India’s sheen had been taken off and I think he has been successful in repositioning India The response is overwhelming from policy makers and the average cab driver People who can wax eloquent about the US Senate’s filibuster rules don’t seem to understand that without a majority in the Rajya Sabha you cannot pass bills Economically from 2014 onwards there was a lot of debate in India as to what would be the next big reform in India There was a lot of criticism initially that this government was not getting down to economic reforms It’s ironic because within the first three or four months this Prime Minister made a risky reach He tried to undo the land acquisition act which has been considered by many to be a major bottleneck to investment and economic growth It turned out that if everything worked like clockwork it would take 55 months for any land to be acquired by any investor And nothing works like clockwork It was an ambitious reach and there were those ordinances because the Bill couldn’t be passed He (Modi) had to step back because it became a wedge issue that got the entire Opposition to align Now I find it amazing that people don’t understand the simple arithmetic of political capital in India People who can wax eloquent about the US Senate’s filibuster rules don’t seem to understand that without a majority in the Rajya Sabha you cannot pass bills And even if you have a majority even then you have to carry your party Since then many baby steps have been taken As Amitabh (Kant) pointed out at least 1200 regulations

the arithmetic of political capital the common misinterpretation of Modi’s strengths and the building blocks for an economy to reach critical mass Reporting photo and video by Firstpost’s Nikhila Natarajan Reporter’s note by Nikhila Natarajan in New York: The Bhisma Pitamah of right wing economists Jagdish Bhagwati who openly backed Narendra Modi’s candidacy for Prime Minister in 2014 and has given demonetisation his unambiguous thumbs up hailed Member of Parliament Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda as an “amazingly competent person” who is Prime Minister material at Columbia University in New York City “Many of us hope that one day you will be the Indian Prime Minister He (Jay Panda) is an amazingly competent man taking great interest in the issues of the day” Bhagwati one of the most respected trade theorists of his generation said Jay Panda is a four-time Member of Parliament from Kendrapara constituency in Odisha and a founding member of the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) party – Odisha’s ruling party Panda is an early investor among his peers on the international speaking circuit Bhagwati introduced Jay Panda to a select audience of about 100 economists gathered for a Festschrift at Columbia University in honour of Arvind Panagariya who until recently was Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog Known to be addicted to witticisms he picked up in Cambridge of the 1950s Bhagwati poked fun at government processes and shone a light on why he is cheering Panda on for India’s top job in the future: “Like those who live in the US know that executive action is a big thing here because you can’t get things through the Congress The trouble with that is because it is easier to impose it is also easier to revoke But way back I asked Jay about it and he pointed out how you can renew ordinances again and again If you can do that it undermines the legitimacy of the Congress or (Indian) Parliament and so we must worry about it Jay Panda was the first person who drew my attention to this the same thing is happening in France Today this is a big big issue I am particularly grateful to Jay for pointing this out early in the game To find politicians who are interested in the issues is not easy Most of them get tied up in a variety of issues like getting re-elected and so on Jay however has managed to retain his intellectual curiosity” Bhagwati renowned for his acerbic sideswipes of fellow academics
