Our capital has gone above and beyond to welcome and nurture some of the world’s most innovative digital companies, with great success.More than 40,000 technology businesses are already headquartered in Inner London, employing more than 250,000 people. Oxford Economics has forecast that London’s digital industries will generate an additional 46,000 jobs and £12billion of economic value.However, we are sure you are acutely aware that our leading position and current momentum are under threat. Rival technology hubs such as Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris are looking to capitalise on Brexit uncertainty by aggressively marketing to British startups. A significant rise in business rates will only strengthen their hands.London’s startup community have had to contend with spiralling property values and increasing commercial rents for some time. These latest proposed changes to business rates will force many to shoulder additional costs, or even consider relocation, at a time when it has never been more important for us to promote our city’s global reputation as a welcoming, supportive place to start and grow a business.We welcome any short term relief you are able to provide to help those who would be worst affected by higher rates. However, we believe that the time has come for a full scale review of the business rates regime. This should start with an open dialogue with industry to explore how the system can better reflect our changing economy.

Labour could campaign against its own Brexit deal in a second referendum, u

The ballot paper should be the options of accepting Labour’s deal or remaining in the EU. Share Labour has so far only committed to campaigning for a second referendum on a Tory Brexit deal, kicking into the long grass the question of how the party would act should it win power before the UK’s departure from the EU. However, some of Corbyn’s strongest allies – including Unite general secretary Len McCluskey – now want Labour to back another public vote if it wins a pre-Brexit general election.

Mark Carney calls on Germany to foot Eurozone’s risk

first_imgWednesday 28 January 2015 9:10 pm Mark Carney calls on Germany to foot Eurozone’s risk Eurozone countries should share more risks and allow taxpayers’ money to circulate more freely as it does between countries in the UK, Mark Carney said in an unusually outspoken address last night.The Bank of England governor hinted that Greece’s troubles would be less severe if it could access more German money, comparing the situation to that between Scotland and the rest of the UK.“A powerful demonstration of this comes with the recent sharp fall in global oil prices. Because this risk is shared across the entire UK (which on the whole is a net beneficiary of lower oil prices), the net impact on the Scottish public finances is a mere one-tenth of what it would have been if there were no risk sharing,” he told an audience in Dublin.“There are few clearer illustrations of the benefits of sound fiscal arrangements in a currency union.”The UK has recovered more quickly than the Eurozone because its regions shared risks, the banks were cleaned up more quickly, and sterling fell 25 per cent, Carney said. “Without this risk sharing, the euro area finds itself in an odd position,” he said.As a result, the deficit is falling and growth has returned, he said.Carney also praised the European Central Bank for the “boldness” of its plan announced last week to buy hundreds of billions of euros of government bonds to fight the “potentially dangerous” combination of weak growth and falling prices.By contrast, the governor said the Eurozone still needs more public spending in its poorer parts. “It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that, if the Eurozone were a country, fiscal policy would be substantially more supportive,” said Carney.“Europe needs a comprehensive, coherent plan to anchor expectations, build confidence and escape its debt trap,” Carney said in his speech.

NK Ways to Raise Wartime Authenticity

first_img There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again Facebook Twitter Sources from inside North Korea have been describing to Daily NK the various ways in which the authorities are generating a tense domestic atmosphere following UN Resolution 2094 and the start of ‘Key Resolve-Foal Eagle’ ROK-U.S. military exercises.A source from the North Hamkyung Province city of Chongjin told Daily NK today, “Province, municipal and county administrations have been moved underground and civilian exercises are being held daily, so tensions are at a high right now. There are some people selling possessions to buy rice and other emergency foods.”“By moving provincial radio, provincial news and telephone communications agencies underground, they have moved the authenticity of the wartime crisis up a notch,” she also added. “Even those guys who used to see it as more of the same old ‘war atmosphere propaganda’ have grown tenser.” At the same time, however, people are still expressing annoyance at the war preparations. As the source said, “Everywhere I go there is propaganda about preparing for war. People would far rather have a war than live in these hard conditions.”She went on to explain that military and civilian rallies and ongoing defense evacuation drills are hindering market activities, forcing up food prices and making it more difficult to secure supplies. The price of rice has risen by 500 won/kg since last week, she explained, adding, however, “People are just praying that they won’t close the markets down, even if a war were to break out.” Meanwhile, another source from southerly Gangwon Province told Daily NK, “The authorities there are getting people to take part in a ‘grand army support project’, and collecting rice cake from the merchants in the market. These days food traders just leave their posts when they see Party cadres coming into the marketplace.” NewsEconomy News AvatarChoi Song Min RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img SHARE News NK Ways to Raise Wartime Authenticity News North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) By Choi Song Min – 2013.03.11 8:41pm last_img read more

Soldiers dispatched to Pyongsan uranium mine

first_img SHARE North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) News Satellite view of Pyongsan mineSatellite picture of the Pyongsan uranium mine released by 38th North on August 27, 2019. / Image: 38th NorthNorth Korea has recently dispatched soldiers who finished their mandatory service periods to a uranium mine in Pyongsan, North Hwanghae Province, Daily NK has learned. This news comes after the UN Security Council Committee tasked with monitoring sanctionson North Korea released a report on September 5 stating that uranium is still being mined at the site. “After soldiers finish their mandatory service they normally return home, but these soldiers appear to be have been stationed at the site against their will,” a North Hwanghae Province-based source told Daily NK on Monday. “Uranium is still being mined at the site in Pyongsan and uranium refinement facilities are still operational,” the source continued, adding that the “mining of uranium for the country’s nuclear program is likely to continue given that the authorities have recently stationed a large number of soldiers there.” North Korea continues to suggest internationally that it plans to pursue the denuclearization process, but there is evidence to the contrary inside the country. That officials have openly stationed soldiers at the mine suggests that the regime is indicating to its domestic audience that it does not intend to give up its nuclear program. The stationing of these new troops at the site comes after First Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Choe Son-hui announced that North Korea is open to working-level negotiations with the US on denuclearization. This suggests that North Korea has continued to mine and refine uranium in Pyongsan even as it seeks dialogue on denuclearization with the US. The Pyongsan uranium mine is North Korea’s largest and includes a uranium enrichment factory. The mine is one of the major nuclear facilities in the country mentioned by US President Donald Trump to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during the Hanoi summit in February. The families of the soldiers forcibly stationed at the mine are reportedly unhappy with the turn of events. “Those families who have heard about their sons being dispatched to the mine are more or less in mourning for them,” the source said. “People who work for an extended period of time at the Pyongsan mine see their hair turn grey and their teeth fall out, even in their 30s,” another source in North Hwanghae Province said. “The rumors are that many people who have worked there suffer a great deal of health issues before dying at an early age.” It’s not clear, however, what kind of work the soldiers are doing at the site, the first source told Daily NK.The mine has also been the source of leaks of waste water and other waste products recently, raising pollution concerns for nearby rivers and the ocean. South Korea’s Nuclear Safety and Security Commission (NSSC) reported on September 2 that comparative tests of radioactive contamination, including uranium, were conducted at six points near Kanghwa Island, five areas along the West Sea coast, and one location on the Han River. None of the tests detected any unusual findings. The lack of any contamination from the Pyongsan mine may be due to an absence of nuclear reactors and reprocessing facilities at the site, which is only home to the mine and a uranium refinement facility. “While Pyongsan may not be a major nuclear site compared to Yongbyon [nuclear facility], there’s evidence that the mine is contributing to the country’s nuclear program,” another Daily NK source said. “Moving forward, the site will need to be included in any process aimed at denuclearizing the country.”Please direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] North Korea hikes “party contributions” Russia-based workers must pay by 30-55% By Seulkee Jang – 2019.09.18 4:00pm RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Soldiers dispatched to Pyongsan uranium minecenter_img News Facebook Twitter News AvatarSeulkee JangSeulkee Jang is one of Daily NK’s full-time journalists.

Israeli bank settles with OSC over unregistered trading

first_img OSC steps up crypto enforcement Related news Registration proves elusive for crypto firms: FCA Keywords RegistrationCompanies Ontario Securities Commission To settle the allegations, the bank agreed to make a $500,000 settlement payment to the OSC, and to either rely on the international dealer exemption, or seek registration in Ontario, if it engages in activities that require registration. According to the settlement, the allegations come in the wake of a compliance review carried out by the OSC and Quebec’s Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), in cooperation with banking regulators, back in 2011 to determine whether any Ontario- and Quebec-based branches of foreign banks were engaged in securities-related business without registration. That review found that the bank had opened accounts for Ontario residents and engaged in trading and advising without an exemption. The OSC notes that the bank stopped opening accounts, closed accounts for investors that don’t qualify as “permitted clients”, and voluntarily took steps to bring itself into compliance with Ontario securities law. It also says that the bank fully cooperated during the investigation, and that they are not aware of any harm caused to clients. The settlement indicates that the bank maintains that it acted in good faith “but did not turn its attention to the fact that such trading and advising could be construed as a breach of Ontario securities law or as conduct contrary to the public interest.” James Langton center_img Unilateral Ontario reforms could hurt harmonization, provincial regs warn The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) has settled allegations against an Israeli bank that it accused of trading without registration. The OSC says it has approved a settlement agreement with Bank Leumi Le Israel B.M., which sees the bank admit that it traded without proper registration in Ontario.

Home sales nosedive in March

first_img Related news Canadian Press Canadian home sales nosedived in March as the Covid-19 pandemic began to take hold and caused both buyers and sellers to pull back.The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) said Wednesday that home sales last month were down 14.3% compared with February, on a seasonally adjusted basis. Keywords Housing House. 123RF The drop marks an abrupt downward shift from what was expected to be a busy spring for home sales.“March 2020 will be remembered around the planet for a long time,” said association president Jason Stephen in a statement.“After Friday the 13th, everything went sideways.”Restrictions on physical distancing and the closure of non-essential businesses began in the middle of March in a bid to slow the spread of Covid-19.While realtors have been designated as essential services, real estate boards have urged increasingly stringent measures to avoid in-person activity as much as possible.Home sales for March were still up 7.8% compared with a slow March a year ago, but CREA noted that figure contrasted with a year-over-year gain of close to 30% in February.The March numbers also only started to drop near the end of the month, said CREA senior economist Shaun Cathcart.“The numbers that matter most for understanding what follows are those from mid-March on, and things didn’t really start to ratchet down until week four. Preliminary data from the first week of April suggest both sales and new listings were only about half of what would be normal for that time of year.”The drop in sales activity varied by region, with Calgary marking a 26.3% decline, Greater Toronto Area sales down 20.8%, Montreal down 13.3%, Ottawa down 7.9%, Greater Vancouver off 2.9%, while Regina actually saw a 7.1% sales gain.The national average price for a home sold in March was just over $540,000, up 12.5% from a year ago, while the composite price index rose 6.9% from a year ago.Excluding the Greater Toronto Area and Greater Vancouver, two of the country’s most active and expensive housing markets, the average price was about $410,000.The sales-to-new-listings ratio slipped to 64% from 65.4% in February, a relatively small change given what’s going on, said Dominion Lending chief economist Sherry Cooper in a note.“While this is down slightly, the bigger picture is that this measure of market balance was remarkably little changed considering the extent to which current economic and social conditions are impacting both buyers and sellers.”She said that with the market still largely balanced for March, the impact on housing prices will likely take a little longer to become apparent.“Clearly this is only the beginning, but the plunge in sales and new listings in the second half of March is indicative of the stall out in housing market activity likely until social distancing is removed and people feel safe enough to resume normal activities.”Activity could, however, then rebound fairly sharply if physical distancing measures are lifted by the end of June, said Royal LePage Canada president Phil Soper.“Unlike, say, restaurants, where you’ll never make up for a month of zero sales, in the real estate industry, bad weather, a short term economic shock, regulatory change, can shift the pattern of transactions from one quarter to the next.”He said he doesn’t expect a full rebound in sales this year, but that a lot will depend on what kind of knock-on effects the business restrictions end up having on the economy.“The question is, will the severe downturn in the second quarter carry on for the full year, and I just don’t believe it will. I believe some of those transactions, a significant number will be pushed into the third and fourth quarters.”He noted that most job losses to date have been with younger and part-time workers who are less likely to be in the housing market, while the potential drop in immigration levels could also have a more muted impact because newcomers generally take several years to enter the market.If physical distancing measures, however, stretch on past June, then the realtor agency forecasts that it could put pressure on the market and prices could decline.CREA, meanwhile, has held off on any revisions to its 2020 outlook, which in December called for an 8.9% rise in sales to 530,000 homes, because there is too much still unknown, said spokesman Pierre Leduc.“As the Bank of Canada said [on Wednesday], ‘the outlook is too uncertain at this point to provide a complete forecast’,” he said by email.“There isn’t enough data and way too much uncertainty to determine any trends moving forward. It will be near impossible to do so until containment measures are relaxed.” GTA home sales down 13% between April and May: TRREB Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Global housing prices rise amid pandemic: BIS Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Tougher stress tests won’t chill housing market: Scotialast_img read more

200k vaccines per day to meet Fed Budget target

first_img200k vaccines per day to meet Fed Budget target Provocate C-suite consultingFederal Budget Business & Media BriefBudget needs 200k vaccines per day to meet targetKEY FINDINGS: The Federal Budget is banking on current COVID19 vaccinations increasing five-fold to up to 200,000 per day every day to complete the rollout by the end of 2021 – the same rate as Australia’s original targets before they were scrapped, according to C-suite consulting firm Provocate.This is despite Australia’s current vaccination rate averaging just 35,000 per day, and its highest single day recorded to date (89,000) reached nearly four weeks ago.Provocate Managing Director Troy Bilsborough – a former Senior Advisor to the Federal Health & Aged Care Minister (2013-2017) – said the biggest question remaining for business was what rate of herd immunity the Budget was banking on, as it meant a difference of 50,000 extra vaccinations daily between high and low rates.“The safest bet is for Australia to collectively work towards the highest rate of herd immunity until we don’t.“Other than the hardest political opponents, most Australian businesses will be willing the government on to turbocharge the vaccination rollout and meet their ambitious target so borders can open.“However, to average 200,000 vaccines per day every day over the next seven months is going to be a monumental task, given we’re currently averaging about 35,000 per day, and business should plan conservatively and cautiously.“The Budget predicting international borders opening six months after completing the vaccine rollout is a signal in itself government is providing a buffer on delivery without throwing out its economic forecasts.“Until vaccination rates are consistently averaging at least one million per week, we would advise business C-suite continue to expect a vaccine rollout completion closer to 2023 than 2021.“The increased level of Federal spending and debt announced now should also see businesses cautious and realistic about future government spending over the next four years and demonstrating clear win-win-wins to receive it.” /Public Release.
