China invites chancellor Philip Hammond to visit despite war of words over British patrols in Pacific

first_img whatsapp The Chinese foreign ministry has said it would welcome a visit from the UK government’s chancellor of the exchequer, Philip Hammond, just a day after he said that relations with China had been affected by talk of Britain deploying a warship in the Pacific. Read more: Defence firm BAE plugs £20m into artificial intelligence on UK warships Hammond’s trip to China last week was called off, according to reports, following defence minister Gavin Williamson’s claims that the UK would use military force to support its interests after Brexit and deploy a new aircraft carrier in the Pacific. The chancellor said that he was disappointed China had reacted badly to Williamson’s comments, but now the Chinese government has responded by claiming Hammond is welcome to visit.“China sets great store on Sino-Britain ties, and hopes Britain can earnestly respect China’s core interests and concerns, and make efforts for promoting the healthy and stable development of relations,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily news briefing, according to Reuters.“As for the issue of chancellor Hammond visiting China, we have said that we welcome him to visit,” Geng added.The relationship between China and Britain has continued to grow in recent years. China was Britain’s sixth largest export market in 2017 with sales worth £22.3bn, while it was also its fourth largest source of imports, worth £45.2bn.  Share China invites chancellor Philip Hammond to visit despite war of words over British patrols in Pacific Michael Searles center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteableyJulia Robert’s Daughter Turns 16 And Looks Just Like Her MomNoteableybonvoyaged.comTotal Jerks: These Stars Are Horrible People.bonvoyaged.comDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily FunnyLiver Health1 Bite of This Melts Belly And Arm Fat (Take Before Bed)Liver HealthMisterStoryWoman files for divorce after seeing this photoMisterStoryPost FunRare Photos Show Us Who Meghan Markle Really IsPost FunBleacherBreaker4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

More than a third of UK workers plan to change job in 2015 – here are eight reasons why

first_img Tags: NULL Monday 5 January 2015 5:02 am Catherine Neilan whatsapp More than a third of UK workers plan to change job in 2015 – here are eight reasons why center_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Share Thinking about changing your job this year? You’re not the only one.  More than a third of UK workers – 37 per cent – are hoping to leave their current job in 2015, nearly double the amount of people this time last year (19 per cent) and three times that of 2013, when just 13 per cent of people planned to move.  While that means there will be more competition for the jobs that are out there, it also means the logjam that has existed for the last few years could finally ease.  The Institute of Leadership and Management, which conducted the survey that revealed our career plans, said this showed “the return of ambition to the UK workforce” after years in the doldrums.  Of the people looking for new positions, nearly two-thirds (59 per cent) were looking for a better opportunity to progress, more than those looking for a better salary (56 per cent), with a quarter of people planning to make the leap because they feel underappreciated – up almost 10 percentage points on 2014.  Half of people were looking for a more interesting role. ILM chief executive Charles Elvin said the “improving economy and more fruitful job market”, warning employers that “it’s likely they will have to work harder to keep their talented employees”.  He added: Charles continued: “All staff want to feel that they are appreciated by their organisation so it’s crucial that companies actively recognise the efforts and talents of their employees. Companies may want to adapt to this new improved climate, by acknowledging where staff have excelled and moulding opportunities for them to advance.”The eight reasons British workers want to change job in 2015More opportunity for progression (59 per cent)Better pay (56 per cent)More interesting job (50 per cent)Better management (30 per cent)More opportunity for training/development (27 per cent)More opportunity for flexible working (18 per cent)Nicer people (5 per cent)Better options for parental leave (3 per cent) last_img read more

Tom Rice (R-S.C.) and Patrick Meehan (R-Pa.) argued that the Colombian government must alter a national development plan, because it differs from World Health Organization standards by tying marketing approval for approving drugs to pricing criteria, which they argue is not used by other OECD countries.

Second half may be tougher on investors: report

first_img Related news James Langton businessman with financial symbols charts and graphs violetkaipa/123RF The fundamental outlook for the global economy and markets in largely unchanged, but concerns are multiplying, according to a midyear outlook published from Boston-based Natixis Investment Managers.Although the global earnings trends remain solid, the market outlook “has deteriorated” through the first half of 2018, the report warns, and, the second half may be tougher on investors. Prospects for continued global growth are looking a bit gloomier. “While global real GDP for 2018-2019 remains in a still-respectable 3.5%-4% range, cracks in the synchronized global growth story are starting to appear,” the report states. Specifically, growth appears to be slowing in the United Kingdom, Japan, China and emerging markets generally.Additionally, there is the prospect of tighter monetary policy around the world. “The benign tightening envisioned by hopeful investors has now become somewhat less benign,” the report states.Other concerns include rising trade tensions, a flattening yield curve and higher inflation.“For now, the global economy remains strong enough to support risk assets like stocks and the credit sectors of the bond market. It would be premature to get bearish, in our view. However, the clouds on the horizon have become a bit darker in recent months, so we reiterate that this late in the cycle, discretion is the better part of valor,” the report states.

Bold plan to reshape Australia’s financial system

first_imgBold plan to reshape Australia’s financial system Australian Sustainable Finance InitiativeAustralian Sustainable Finance Initiative releases new RoadmapAustralia’s financial services sector has come together in an unprecedented coalition to promote a transformation of the country’s financial system to prioritise prosperity for all, meet 21st century sustainability challenges, and position Australia more competitively within international markets.The Australian Sustainable Finance Initiative (ASFI) – comprising 80 organisations across major banks, insurers, super funds, civil society, and stakeholders – released its Roadmap this week, setting out a bold plan to align Australia’s financial system to support a thriving Australian society, a healthy environment and a strong and prosperous economy.The Roadmap calls for financial system participants to embed sustainability into their organisation’s purpose, strategy and leadership, and to support the transition of the economy to net zero emissions by 2050, consistent with international conventions including the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.The Roadmap makes 37 recommendations that will enable the financial services sector, together with regulators and governments, to strengthen Australia’s financial system with the aim of recovering from the impacts of COVID-19 and delivering a transition to a net zero, resource-efficient and inclusive economy.ASFI Co-chair Jacki Johnson said “The Roadmap signifies a step change in how the finance sector does business. It provides a path towards a financial system that is better prepared to face future risks and shocks, such as a changing climate; to meet the current needs of Australians while delivering on long-term needs for a sustainable future; to enhance financial inclusion and well-being of all Australians, including our most vulnerable; and to direct capital to where it is most needed.”“Many of the challenges that Australia faces are global in nature and, beyond our borders, a major international shift is underway shaping capital flows. There is an urgent imperative for Australia’s financial services sector to act to remain globally competitive in a world increasingly prioritising a sustainable economy.”“We are seeking to re-orient capital – where capital is lent, what it insures and where it is invested – to supporting and building value today while strengthening the economic, natural and social assets that underpin our long term prosperity” said Johnson.ASFI Co-chair Simon O’Connor, said “As governments across Australia – federal, state and local – set a direction for a stronger and more sustainable nation, this Roadmap is the financial services sector’s contribution to ensuring our sector is aligned with this future. As an industry, we are ready to lead and play our part”.“Recent events, such as bushfires, floods and drought, as well as COVID-19, have highlighted how locally and globally connected our economy, society and environment are.”“The financial services sector recognises the critical role it needs to play for Australia to recover from the pandemic and to prepare for our future challenges. We need to mobilise now to enable a prosperous and thriving economy, which can only be delivered while investing in a sustainable and resilient society, and healthy environment” O’Connor added.The Roadmap’s 37 recommendations are focused on:1. Embedding sustainability into leadership.2. Integrating sustainability into practice.3. Enabling resilience for all Australians.4. Building sustainable finance markets.The Roadmap has been developed collaboratively by more than 140 participants from over 80 organisations spanning Australia’s financial system, including financial institutions, civil society, academia, regulators and government. This has been done under the guidance of a Steering Committee comprising major banks, insurers, investors, and civil society representatives supported by financial regulators, APRA and ASIC, in observer roles. Delivery of the roadmap will be driven by a permanent sustainable finance body, to be established in 2021.The Australian Sustainable Finance Roadmap report can be found here: https://www.sustainablefinance.org.au/roadmap /Public Release.
