“Liberia has no Outstanding Debt for Germany”

first_imgGerman Ambassador to Liberia, Ralph Timmermann, has declared that Liberia owes no debt to the Federal Republic of Gemany. He explained all amounts his country has contributed to the development of Liberia have been in the form of grants.Ambassador Timmermann’s comment came following concerns from some corners of the public over whether Liberia’s current debt still stands following the waiving of about US$2 billion debt; giving the country the chance to pursue further loans.Germany’s relationship with Liberia has a long history, dating as far back as the 1800s when Liberia got her independence in 1847.This relationship puts Liberia in a better position to get loans from Germany since the country (Liberia) now has a respectable standing in the world financial sector.In an interview with the Daily Observer, Ambassador Timmermann said the debt Liberia had for Germany was cancelled, and that all funds coming from the German Government to the country are intended to assist recovery from the civil conflict and help Liberians have a better standard of living.Outlining some projects to which Germany has contributed funds; Ambassador Timmermann named the West Africa Power Pool, the Mount Coffee Hydro Project and other areas in Agriculture and Solar Energy as key priority areas his country is investing in.He underscored that the German NGO GIZ provides technical assistance to the Ministry of Lands, Mines & Energy, and also works with the Liberia Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (LEITI) to create a better resource governance system.Aside from these undertakings, he said Germany provides logistical assistance to Liberia’s security sector; including the Liberian National Police.He explained that prior to the Liberian civil crisis; Germany was in a long standing relationship with Liberia, with German companies like the Bong Mining Company operating in the country. He noted that his country was one of the first to recognize Liberia’s independence in the 19th century, which is the foundation of their relationship.Sharing his impression of how funds provided by Germany are used, Ambassador Timmermann noted that more still needed to be done.  He, however, lauded the efforts of Lands, Mines & Energy Minister, Patrick Sendolo, for the role he plays to ensure that the hydro project be completed and Liberians receive cheap electricity.Germany has contributed US$75 million for the rehabilitation of the Mount Coffee hydro plant, which is expected to be completed by 2015.Some German companies are currently engaged in developing the energy sector by providing technical knowledge to locals to build new models of coal pots for cooking and share knowledge on how to harness solar energy under the program, “Energizing Development Partnership.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CEO did not reapply for new role

first_imgDissolution of NFMU The Public Telecommunications Ministry has completed the recruitment process for the Telecommunications Agency, which will replace the National Frequency Management Unit (NFMU).The Ministry stated on Saturday that under the Telecommunications Act of 2018, provisions are made for the dissolution of the NFMU and its absorption by the Agency.For this, employees of the Unit were asked to submit Expressions of Interest for employment prior to the May 10.This was done “to complete the formalities to facilitate rehiring decisions without a break in employment of selected staff.  This process was designed to give employees of the NFMU priority with respect to employment with the Agency”.However, the Chief Executive Officer and another employee have since not acted on the recommendation. The other 16 persons have applied but only 14 were endorsed for the positions offered.“Two of the staff members, including the current NFMU CEO, have so far not taken up the offer. The remaining 16 have applied and it has been recommended that 14 of the 16 who applied be offered positions.Two individuals were deemed not qualified for the positions for which they applied and have and so far appeared disinterested in positions commensurate with their qualifications,” the Ministry stated.The 14 persons will take up new positions within the Agency. However, it was not indicated what will happen to persons who were unqualified or did not apply.Back in January, Public Telecommunications Minister, Cathy Hughes had said that the Agency was created to better regulate and monitor operations.“The objective of establishing the Agency now is to give us time to put in place certain administrative arrangements that [are] necessary for the Agency to function effectively when the entire act is brought into force.Some of the things the Agency needs to put in place are its internal Government arrangement — such as financial regulations, human resource policy, rules of procedure of the Board. The administrative procedure to facilitate the implementation of the legal provisions for licensing, monitoring, enforcement, and other responsibilities that are specified for the agency in the 2016 Act and in the regulations.”Meanwhile, Consultant Andre Griffith mentioned that an order was signed to establish the Agency as a body corporate, and the Agency would have begun the preparatory work for the policies.He noted that those polices would have to be assented to by a Board, which is yet to be established.“The functions of the Agency are to be discharged by a Board, and that Board is authorised to regulate its own procedure. A lot of the preparatory work we have done is subject to the Board’s review, and [members of the Board] would want to look at it, refine it, amend it,” he noted.The Unit was managed by Valmiki Singh.last_img read more

Modric faces up to his final chance for World Cup glory

first_img“It seems like both of them are from different planets and they came to play football with us mortals,” Rakitic said.“Both of them are among the best players ever in their positions. You try to enjoy it as much as you can, to learn from them.”Iniesta is regularly classed among the greats of the game and as a defining influence on Spain’s success, but Modric’s talents remain relatively unsung.Perhaps, in part, it is because Iniesta’s brilliance has been backed up by achievements on the world stage — he scored the winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final — while Modric has not hit the same heights with Croatia.Modric owns four Champions League titles from his six years at Real Madrid, and has also won a La Liga and the Copa del Rey.Christian Eriksen is the main World Cup threat for Denmark © AFP / Jewel SAMADBut since making his Croatian debut in March 2006, in a friendly against Argentina, he has twice tasted disappointment in the group stage of the World Cup, either side of a failure even to qualify in 2010.At the European Championship, Croatia fell at the first hurdle after the group phase in 2008 and 2016 and did not make it out of their group in 2012.“Modric would probably be getting more attention than he is right now if he was a German or Spanish player,” Croatia defender Dejan Lovren said last week.“He would maybe even be a Ballon D’Or winner. But because we are a smaller country, he does get less attention than he deserves.”Modric has never even made it into the top three of football’s most prestigious individual award but, after scoring twice in Croatia’s opening three games in Russia, there is a chance for him finally to put his stamp on a major tournament.Iniesta and Spain could lie in wait in the quarter-finals but first, Croatia must overcome Denmark in the last 16 on Sunday in Nizhny Novgorod.Denmark trudged their way through an underwhelming Group C but they have their own midfield dynamo in Christian Eriksen who, like Modric once did, has flourished in the Premier League at Tottenham.Modric is deployed deeper for Real, tasked with moving the ball from back to front by wriggling his way forward and changing the angle of attacks. But for Croatia, his job is closer in kind to Eriksen’s, an executioner of killer passes in the final third.It means they are unlikely to be in direct combat in Novgorod but Modric and Eriksen’s battle for control could prove decisive.“I do not consider myself to be worse than him,” Eriksen said on Friday.“He is the type of player you enjoy to challenge yourself against. For the national team, he is more attacking than he is for Madrid.”Modric admittedly enjoys a stronger supporting cast, with Rakitic a particularly formidable midfield partner.But the stakes are also higher for the 32-year-old, who is probably playing his last World Cup and possibly has one final chance to make a mark on the international stage.“Sure, there’s a lot of pressure but I said from the beginning, when we got together for this tournament, that we need to enjoy this because it’s the World Cup,” Rakitic said.“We need to fight, to enjoy the tournament and do everything we can to make our fans happy.”0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Luka Modric is Croatia’s key man at the World Cup © AFP / PASCAL GUYOTSAINT PETERSBURG, Russian Federation, Jun 30 – Croatia head into their World Cup last-16 match against Denmark spearheaded by evergreen midfielder Luka Modric, a player his teammate Ivan Rakitic has compared to Spain’s Andres Iniesta.Four years with Iniesta at Barcelona and 11 alongside Modric for Croatia leaves Rakitic in a privileged position to judge two of the finest playmakers of the modern era.last_img read more

DWP to reopen bidding on dust control

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita City leaders expressed concerns upon learning that costs for the environmental mitigation work have soared to $415 million range after initial estimates pegged it at $120 million. The Board of Water and Power Commissioners also voted to open a bid process for a performance audit for Owens Valley work done by the department and one of its major contractors, CH2M Hill, to explain why costs have escalated. The prominent Colorado-based company has provided consulting, design, environmental and construction management services on the Owens project, and it was slated to perform the work beyond April that has now been put out to bid again. Commission President Mary Nichols said CH2M Hill is free to compete, and that the fact the board is asking for new bids should not be seen as prejudging the outcome of the audit. “What it does do is to reflect the very strong desire of this commission to not just follow blindly down a path that was set for us years ago but to actually get control over the whole program and process,” she said. The DWP Commission voted Tuesday to start a new bid process for work in the Owens Valley, where a dust-control project has generated concerns about rising costs. A new request should go out early next week for firms interested in providing construction management services for the project starting later this spring. “We want to make sure the environmental dust bowl of the north doesn’t turn into the fiscal quicksand of the south,” said Commissioner David Nahai. A legacy of Los Angeles’ early 20th century diversion of Owens Valley water, the dust-control work is required by various legal and regulatory agreements in order to minimize air pollution. CH2M Hill understands that the new board wants to be involved in the process and the company is likely to compete, said spokesman John Corsi. “We have a lot of experience at Owens Lake and we think we’ve added a lot of value to our customers at DWP and the citizens of Los Angeles,” he said. “We think we’re the right firm to finish the job.” Commissioner Nick Patsaouras said the requests for proposals will be available online, a departure from past DWP practices that will help smaller firms and professionals to compete. Meanwhile, the board brought in expert speakers to give a detailed presentation about air pollution issues in the Owens Valley. Nichols has a trip scheduled for later this month in which she plans to meet with local officials and residents to address their concerns. While there is a long history of tension between Los Angeles and Owens Valley residents, there have been new conflicts lately, including a disagreement over extending the dust-control work. The Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District wants the DWP to expand the 30-mile dust project by another 9.3 miles. DWP officials have objected. “The one thing that unites people in those areas is opposition to the big bad city of Los Angeles, and I don’t think we have to accept that as inevitable,” Nichols said. “I think we can take steps toward having a long-lasting peace.” Then, to underscore the difficulty of the task, Nichols added to hearty laughter, “And when I finish that I’m going to the Middle East.” Dan Laidman, (213) 978-0390 dan.laidman@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
