‘EU to Support Gov’t Pro-poor Agenda’ -Amb. Cavé

first_imgMadam Hélène Cavé, EU Ambassador to LiberiaThe European Union (EU) Ambassador to Liberia, Madam Hélène Cavé has reassured the organization’s commitment to supporting the Liberian government’s Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development.Madam Cavé spoke to delegates attending the 9th ROAC-FED meeting currently taking place in Monrovia, and said the EU will also work with countries in the West African sub-region to enhance sustainable forest management through the Network of National Authorizing Officers Support Unit in West Africa, through the European Development Fund to add value to forest resources.She added that the EU and its member states are fundamental and reliable partner in all the countries of West Africa, “not only because of our cooperation, but also for the political partnership we have with ECOWAS.”“Since the signature of the Lomé Convention and the Cotonou Agreement,” she said, “the role by the NAOs and RAO is very important in the context of our cooperation with the host ACP country.“By consequence, the NAO support unit is instrumental in the success of our cooperation, and is strategically linked to the NAO, the EU Delegation and the line Ministries.”The EU Ambassador emphasized that it is important to connect the National EDF programs to the regional cooperation, and also further on to the continental efforts.By doing so, she stressed: “Our aid can be more effective if a clear and complementary link can be made between these different levels. Priority sectors for the WA RIP: Peace and Security/ regional economic integration and trade/resilience and natural resources management, relevant for many parts in the region not the least Liberia. Important to see the synergies between the national programs and the regional program.”She said one practical example is the management of forest ecosystems where the regional program for West Africa will work with local communities including those in Liberia to ensure the sustainable economic development of the forest, while at national level will be building the capacity of all Liberian stakeholders to ensure that the export of logs can be certified as the highest possible price of timber can be obtained on the international market.For instance, fully certified timber can enter the European market with a 20-30% top up on the price. While recommending the regional bodies like ECOWAS, but also WAEMU to steer this regional integration process. Allow me at this point to mention also the key political role ECOWAS is playing in West Africa.For instance, here in Liberia, ECOWAS has been at the forefront, together with AU during the electoral process, when the situation was rather tense during the two rounds for Liberia as for other countries the regional additionally is important.Sanniquellie-Loguatuo road would not have been possible from the National NIP alone and the  €14.2 from the regional envelope made it possible to ensure this vital link  in the Western African Costal Corridor between Nouakchott and Lagos. For the EU it has always been important to help and strengthen regional bodies in Africa since the EU started as an economic regional organization, nowadays it has an enhanced and worldwide recognized political mandate. A similar development has taken place over the years within ECOWAS.The Ambassador indicated that despite being happy to see that migration has a place in the agenda other issues of mutual concerns such as climate change and terrorism need to be considered. “For the EU, migration has been and is a sector of growing importance and increased attention to the development agenda. Some countries are already benefiting from some development projects under the Trust Fund,” She emphasized.“What priorities the region might want to set within the next programming cycle, after completion of the post-Cotonou negotiations. Understand that this is still an ongoing discussion between the EU and the ACP group but it is important already to anticipate within the region and with a West African regional perspective on where the region would like to influence these discussions.”She then pointed out to the delegate “Sharing best practices is a must, I am sure than some of you have developed some useful tools you can share with others. I sincerely wish you all the best in your working session, and that you will go back to your country with new ideas.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Stem cell bill will pass but won’t survive veto

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON (AP) – Senate supporters of embryonic stem cell research refused to take another no for an answer Tuesday, advancing politically popular legislation that is assured of passage, yet doomed for the second straight year to a veto that Congress cannot override. ”This bill eventually will become law,” vowed Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., as debate opened on a bill to loosen federal funding restrictions on research that supporters say offers hope for treatment of numerous diseases. ”If not this year then next year. If not next year then the following year.” Assuredly not this year. President Bush, who cast the only veto of his tenure on a stem cell bill in 2006, quickly made it clear this year will be no different. The bill ”would use federal taxpayer dollars to support and encourage the destruction of human life for research,” the White House said in a written statement. Stem cells are created in the first days after conception, and are typically culled from frozen embryos, which are destroyed in the process. The legislation would overturn a policy Bush established in 2001, when he said federal funds may only be used for research on a limited number of stem cell lines that were in existence before the day of his announcement. The administration’s goal was to satisfy calls for funding of scientific research without offending anti-abortion conservatives who had helped elect him to the White House. The bill’s supporters concede they are short of the votes needed to override a veto, but they appeared eager to confront the president again on an issue with strong public backing. ”If we did everything based on veto threats by the president, we would never get anything done around here,” said Jim Manley, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. The result was a heavily political debate. Last year’s veto was ”another despicable example of science taking a back seat to politics in this administration,” said Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass. ”Policies that should rest on science are decided instead by crass political calculations of what is needed to appease the most intransigent elements of the Republican base.” Republican opponents backed an alternative they said offered hope for scientific progress without destroying human embryos, a sticking point for conservatives. ”It’s a way around the culture wars,” added Sen. Norm Coleman of Minnesota, referring to the political battles that have raged in recent years on all issues touching on abortion. ”It’s not all we want but it moves the science forward.” Senate supporters of the veto-threatened bill said they would vote for the alternative, although they deemed it insufficient. Its prospects for House passage were uncertain. Supporters of embryonic stem cell research say it alone promises treatment if not cures for a wide range of diseases, from juvenile diabetes to Alzheimer’s disease. Public opinion polls show support for the research is strong, 61 percent in an ABC/Washington Post Poll earlier this year. In an AP-Ipsos poll last December, 56 percent of those polled said restrictions should be loosened, and Dr. Elias Zerhouni, whom Bush appointed as head of the National Institutes of Health, has called for the policy to be changed. The issue also played a role in the 2006 midterm elections in which Democrats won control of both houses of Congress. Most memorably, actor Michael J. Fox appeared in television ads in at least three races, supporting research. Fox, 45, swayed uncontrollably in the commercial, exhibiting symptoms of his Parkinson’s Disease. Victorious Democrats swiftly put the stem cell bill on their list of top priorities for 2007. The House approved its bill in January, although by a smaller margin than needed to override the threatened veto. In the Senate, supporters were quick to respond to any implication that their measure was unethical Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa, the bill’s chief sponsor, said 50,000 children were born last year to couples using in vitro fertilization. ”Obviously there are some embryos left over. They would like to be able to donate those for research because they’re not going to have any more children,” he said. ”So it seems to me the ethics of this are you just going to discard those, or would it be more ethical to use them to save lives.” Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, agreed. The leftover cells are ”discarded every day, every month, every year as medical waste. How much more life enhancing it would be to use them for research that would save lives, that could preserve lives, that would prolong lives,” she said. But Republicans touted their alternative. ”It’s an affirmation of the need to expand federally funded stem cell research,” said Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia. He said the measure would permit research on cells derived from amniotic fluid and placentas and from embryos that have died naturally. The bill would respect ”the ethical and scientific and moral concerns existing in the medical community today,” he said. Whatever the science, there was little dispute about the outcome. The bill passed the Senate with 63 votes last year, and by most counts, supporters picked up two more supporters as the result of last fall’s elections. That still left them one shy of the two-thirds needed to override the veto and give them momentum for a final push in the House. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she remained optimistic that Congress and Bush could reach an accommodation. ”Every single family in America is one phone call or one diagnosis away from needing the miracle of cures that stem cell research can provide,” Pelosi said at a San Francisco news conference. ”If not, it’s really quite sad, it’s a tragedy,” she said. ”It will send a lot of this research offshore and it will diminish our standard of excellence in our country when it comes to scientific research.” Associated Press writer Scott Lindlaw in San Francisco contributed to this report.last_img read more

Chelsea defensive starlet: ‘Loan move away would be a step back’

first_img Young Chelsea defender Nathan Ake 1 Young Chelsea defender Nathan Ake says he has no plans to leave the club on loan as he looks to break into the first-team.The 19-year-old has found first-team action hard to come by this season, making two appearances in the Capital One Cup, one in the Champions League and none in the Premier League.However, despite the lack of opportunities, Ake has revealed that talks with Jose Mourinho have convinced him to stay at Stamford Bridge.“I feel I am getting closer to the first XI and a loan move would take me further back,” Ake told NUSport.“I recently had a conversation with Jose Mourinho, he feels that I am progressing well and asked me to keep improving.“I feel I am doing well and can compete at the top level for 90 minutes. The goal this season is to play as many minutes of first-team football as possible.”last_img read more

Manchester United v Manchester City: All you need to know about the derby draw

first_img Morgan Schneiderlin went close with a header The 170th Manchester derby ended goalless at Old Trafford, a result that was enough to send City back into the Premier League’s top spot above Arsenal on goal difference.It was a hard-fought contest with plenty of intriguing individual battles and few notable chances, and with United just two points behind their local rivals and the Gunners, it means both Manchester clubs remain firmly in the title race.The Red Devils came closest to breaking the deadlock, as Morgan Schneiderlin headed a good chance wide in the second half, while Jesse Lingard hit the crossbar in the closing stages of the game.Chris Smalling and Nicolas Otamendi also came close to winning it, but a point apiece was a fair reflection of a competitive contest.Anthony Martial and Kevin De Bruyne stole the headlines for their respective clubs in Europe in midweek, but the duo were ineffective in this crunch match as Martial was pushed out on the left, with Wayne Rooney in the central striker’s role, while De Bruyne often mis-placed passes.The hosts made just one change from their midweek draw in the Champions League at CSKA Moscow, with Juan Mata coming back into the side in place of Jesse Lingard, as Louis van Gaal preferred Antonio Valencia at right-back ahead of Matteo Darmian.City were again without star players Sergio Aguero and David Silva, while captain Vincent Kompany was handed a return to the side, with Aleksandar Kolarov and Fernando coming in, and Pablo Zabaleta, Eliaquim Mangala and Jesus Navas dropping out. There were few notable chances in the first half, as United bossed the midfield battle. For City, Raheem Sterling and Fernandinho showed good early combination play but there was no end product as the England attacker had a shot that was deflected wide.Yaya Toure was at the heart of the visitors’ build up play, but the Ivorian midfielder could not produce the decisive quality the Citizens have grown to rely on in recent years.Toure got on the end of a De Bruyne corner before the interval, rising highest in the box, but he could not head on target, before the same combination play saw Toure miss the best chance of the half.Belgian attacker De Bruyne picked him out on the edge of the box and Toure did not connect with the ball as he would have liked and his shot looped wide.The Red Devils started the second half on the front foot and they had a penalty claim, with referee Mark Clattenburg quick to dismiss captain Rooney’s appeal when Ander Herrera appeared to be caught on the right-hand side of the box by Sterling. From the resulting corner, United saw a chance go begging. Schneiderlin was found at the far post, on the edge of the six yard box, but his header across goal went past the post. City’s intention to take away a point was made clear with 14 minutes left, when Toure was replaced by defender Martin Demichelis. Navas then had a tame effort saved by De Gea, before Lingard had the best chance of the second half at the other end. The ball was played over the top and Lingard’s outstretched foot poked the ball over Hart’s head and it hit the upright five minutes from time.Kolarov floated a superb in-swinging free-kick from the left in the final stages of the game and Otamendi, the highest scoring defender in La Liga last season, was inches away from stabbing it home. The gamecame to life in the closing stages as the ball moved quickly to the other end, with Hart showing lightning reactions to get down low to stop Smalling’s low strike, but both teams had to content themselves with a clean sheet and a point from a tricky fixture. 1last_img read more

Local Enterprise Week highlights international opportunities

first_imgOpportunities for business growth beyond local markets, was one of the key themes last week at a series of events, organised for Local Enterprise Week by the Local Enterprise Office, Donegal.In conjunction with other agencies and partners, a total of 26 events took place at venues across the county from Monday March 5th to Friday March 9th, with a huge range of topics from marketing to connecting with the diaspora all covered.“The theme for the week was ‘Back to the Future’ and over the course of the five days there were plenty of opportunities for businesses to look back to where they have been, have a look at where they are now and then listen to inspirational and motivational speakers to give them ambition for the future,” said Michael Tunney, Head of Enterprise in Donegal. The first speaker of the week, Donagh Kelly of the KN Group, spoke in Solis Lough Eske not just of his company’s ethos and ambition, but also explained how they had grown by entering international markets.It was a theme echoed on Monday night at the launch of ‘Donegal – We Make Things,” when six Donegal manufacturing businesses were celebrated in print and in film.“Over the course of the week, one of the things that became apparent to many local businesses is that, not only do opportunities exist in markets beyond local ones, but that those markets can also be accessed successfully from Donegal to grow a business,” Mr. Tunney added.Donagh Kelly of the KN Group who was the first keynote speaker of a busy Local Enterprise Week in Donegal last week.Wednesday’s speaker, Kingsley Aikins an expert on Diaspora spoke of the growth opportunities that exist through networking, while on Thursday Erika Fox spoke of how she had leveraged her networks and used social media to grow an international brand. Donegal businesses also heard on Thursday from export consultant Dermot Murnaghan about opportunities that exist in the Netherlands, Ireland’s second most important mainland European export market.“It was great as always, to have some excellent speakers come in to give brilliant advice, information and inspiration over the course of the week, but one of the highlights of the week certainly was the fact that we were able to include so many local businesses who could share success stories that hopefully will inspire other businesses to follow in their footsteps,” the Head of Enterprise said.Indeed Mr. Tunney explained that Local Enterprise Office, Donegal will seek to immediately build on the momentum gathered during Local Enterprise Week by holding a major international conference in the county next month.“Many businesses will have learned last week that taking business into the global marketplace makes perfect sense for small or medium enterprises – and it means that they are much more likely to survive in the globally competitive business climate.Members who attended the Donegal Women in Business event in The Station House Hotel during Local Enterprise Week last week.There is strong evidence to show that internationally active businesses are more innovative and perform better than those who have not embraced internationalisation. The events and speakers we had in the county for Local Enterprise Week shows that even the smallest businesses can in­ternationalise suc­cessfully, but it would appear many do not have the ambition, the information or the knowledge to do so,” Mr Tunney added. With that in mind he said, Local Enterprise Office, Donegal has moved to organise the conference in Solis Lough Eske on April 12th and 13th to highlight to businesses here why making their marketplace international, makes total sense.While the Head of Enterprise said more details on the conference would be revealed soon, he moved meanwhile to pay tribute to all those who had made last week’s series of events a huge success.Dermot Gallagher enjoying the conversation with Joanne Kilmartin at the agency support for business and employees event in LYIT as part of Local Enterprise Week.Erika Fox of Retro Flame who was the guest speaker at ‘A Stitch in Time’ in Century Cinemas on Thursday pictured with members of the Local Enterprise Creative Coast Fashion and Textiles Creative Cluster who displayed some of their work at the event. Also in the photo are Head of Enterprise in Donegal, Michael Tunney and Creative Coast Donegal Facilitator, Liam Porter.“It was great to have such co-operation from other agencies and partners in the county and I’d like to thank them, all our speakers and all our venue hosts for their contribution towards a great week for Donegal businesses. I’d also urge the businesses who attended and indeed those thinking of starting a business, to continue to engage with the Local Enterprise Office and we will do everything possible to help them,” he concluded.Local Enterprise Office Donegal is supported through co-funding from the Irish Government and the European Regional Development Fund 2014 – 2020.
