Panama Canal
Many people relate Panama with the canal and rightly so, about 5% of all world trade goes through the Panama Canal, everything that goes by sea from the east coast to the west coast of the US and vice versa inevitably goes through the Panama Canal.

The presence of the canal means that Panama will never be away from world business. With the canal undergoing expansion, the amount of business “sailing” through the canal is only set to increase.

The Colon free trade zone
One of the prime factors contributing to the influx of companies into Panama is the Colon free zone – The second largest free trade zone in the world housing more than 1,750 merchants. It has already attracted many top companies and will continue to do so in the future.  

Then there is the mighty banking sector, the growing insurance and re-insurance sector, and the ever-supportive Panama government.

Pda and china business travels

Pda and China Business Travels

In this article we will take a brief look at the business travel potential in Hong Kong as well as the steps which the government and the Hong Kong Tourism Board are taking to help China business travels in the region and boost import/export and global sourcing in the region.

In fact the Hong Kong Tourism Board considers the promotion of business travel in region quite seriously and the year 2006 was celebrated as Discover Hong Kong year on which one of the most emphasized points was the high yield business travellers and how to improve facilities for encouraging people interested in China business be it in any region of the nation such as mainland China or Hong Kong and be it any sort of activities related to import/export and global sourcing.

Leisure is very important for anybody involved in business travel be it China business travels or elsewhere, and people involved in hectic activities such as import/export and global sourcing do need to relax a bit. This is exactly what the Hong Kong Tourism Board realized when they officially launched the personal digital assistant version of the Leisure Guide for Business Travellers. The main aim of this guide is to lure people involved in China business travels to take out time from relatively dry procedures related to import/export and global sourcing, by spending some extra time on recreational activities about which the above guide gives ample information to any China business traveller.

The guide is tailor made for China business travellers and provides them with interesting information about the various facets of the region which one would be interested in visiting and the coming times, the Hong Kong Tourism Board plans to come up with several such tools which would help China business as well as it could indirectly give a boost to import/export and global sourcing as well. It could in fact act like a boomerang for the already booming economy much to the benefit of the nation and its associated regions.

Reasons of trade deficit in agriculture sector of pakistan agriculture is the major sector of economy

reasons of agriculture trade deficits of pakistan

               

                REASONS OF TRADE DEFICIT IN AGRICULTURE SECTOR OF

                                                           

                                                               PAKISTAN

 

Agriculture is the major sector of economy. It not only meets the food requirement of entire population but also supplements the foreign exchange recourses. The rural population constitutes about 60% of the total population .yet it has no organization of its own. Not even a chamber or to represent its views and protect interests. One of the interests of the farming community is to get the fair return of their produce in the market. But they are facing a lot of problems in the distribution and or marketing of their agriculture products.

                       Pakistan is an agricultural country, the people of Pakistan are hardworking and the soil is suitable for the cultivation. But   in spite of all these facts Pakistan is unable to show any reasonable productivity in the agriculture sectors. Agriculture sector is the mainstay to earn foreign exchange or to compensate the Pakistan’s foreign trade deficits, but the dilemma is that Pakistan is importing wheat from the foreign countries instead of cultivating in their own fields due to which Pakistan trade deficit is increasing day by day. Approximately a decade before Pakistan sector contribute ?th to GDP, provides 65% to export earning and provides 44.80% of labor force. But now this ratio is decreasing day by day due to the following problems.

                         In Pakistan cultivable land is under utilized; out of 80 million hectors only 25.2% is cultivated, but it is not fully utilized due to the lack of capital, lack of water and insufficient credit facilities. For agriculture land water is core component but there is a scarcity of irrigation water. It is due to the less rain falls, snow falls and water losses from water courses. The knowledge regarding the agriculture is also a big problem, because of the lack of knowledge agriculture researches are not taken place in our country and researchers are unable to produce any new crop by different biological methods.

                        Pakistan is facing problem in adequate supply of inputs like seeds, chemical fertilizer, pesticides, machinery, and credits. These all things fell short when required. It effects the yielding of the agriculture products. Beside all these problems water logging and salinity is main issue or threat to the agriculture sector. It has adversely effect the performance of agriculture lands. Farmers are facing problems while selling their agriculture products in the markets due the lack of transport facilities and intermediaries’ purchases crops from the farmer’s lands and they do not give the fair prices to the farmers and this price even do not compensate the actual cost of the farmers. Actually the middle man takes the advantage of farmer’s hard working due to which the farmers fad off the middleman system and minimize the productivity of crops.

                        Lack of agro-based industries is emerging problem in the agriculture sector of Pakistan. The agro-based industries like livestock, poultry, fisheries and dairy etc are limited. These industries depend on the agriculture product. If these industries are in abundance the demand of agricultural product will increase and consequently of agricultural crops as well. Another important problem is the lack transport facilities and infrastructure which is the big constrain of farmers to bring their agriculture product or crops in the main market. Ill planning in the agriculture sector creates many problems for the farmers in the productivity of crops.

                  Pesticides and chemicals rates in the market are very high and farmer could not effort these high prices pesticides due to which most part of their crops become the victim of insects and spoil the whole fields of crops.

                  Pakistan inherited feudalistic land tenure at the time of partition in 1947. About 7% of the land owners owned 53%of the total land. These land lords had little interst to cultivate all the land or to raise the productivity of their land. Need was felt to breakup the land assets and provide security of tenure to landless peasants. For this purpose different government have introduced t6he land reform in country like land reform proposals,  like land reform proposal of 1958,1959,1972 but in spite all these it did not bring any positive change for land period of time.

                    If the government of Pakistan take remedial steps to overcome theses problems in the agriculture sector. It may take boom in the agriculture sector due to which the government of Pakistan can earn a lot of foreign exchange and minimize the trade deficit of Pakistan. Agriculture sector compensate a reasonable part in the trade deficit of Pakistan if the government take the serious steps to eliminate these constraints in the development in the agriculture sector

Outside Adventure Continues to organise great Team Building Days Out

XL Vets hold annual conference at Eastnor Castle XLVets is a group of 42 independently owned, progressive veterinary practices, all committed to the future of the UK livestock industry. Spanning the length and breadth of the UK, they work together, sharing experience, knowledge and skills in order to define and deliver the highest standards of veterinary practice, animal health and productivity. XL Vets approached Outside Adventure to organise the activities for the afternoon of 3 national conferences that they were holding at Eastnor Castle. They were keen that the participants were split into teams and given the opportunity to compete head to head on a number of activities. Outside put together a programme of 5 activities which were a combination of physical and mental challenges. At each activity the vets were able to compete head to head with another team. Activities included: building a raft and completing a course; crossing a Tyrolean traverse and keeping a pipe full of water; completing the construction of a bridge before winching a Land Rover into position and driving it over the bridge; a puzzle zone, descending from the castle turret on the 850ft zipwire and trying to drop a bomb onto the target. The teams were scored and ranked on each activity to give an overall winner, spot prizes were also awarded to individuals who stood out. The scores were kept over the three weeks allowing all 30 teams to be ranked against one another. Helen Sykes, Chair, Practice Management Forum, XL Vet UK Ltd said; “I am writing on behalf of the delegates at the recent Practice Management Forum to express our thanks to the team at D3 for getting us all safely through a truly amazing and exhilarating sequence of experiences at Eastnor Castle this week. You all managed to treat us all so gently (well, some more gently than others!), courteously, and with a such a good sense of humour and quiet assurance; and you also made us feel as though you were really enjoying it too (which I hope you were). I would recommend your services without hesitation to anyone hoping to develop teams and/or just have a great day of activities. Please accept my thanks on behalf of everyone on the Practice Management Forum.” Castle Treasure Hunt for Howdens Joinery Howdens Joinery invest in their staff and regularly reward and motivate their them with events both in Britain and Europe. This year they were looking for a summer event for their head office which was fresh and exciting and unlike anything they had done before. They approached Outside Adventure who organised a Castle Treasure Hunt Event to suit the objective for 45 participants. A giant aerial map signposted 20 different activities that could be completed to accrue points. Activities include dropping ‘bombs’ from a zip wire, crate stack, operating a crane whilst blindfolded, compass navigation trail, giant puzzles and high ropes. The evening was spent in the ever popular Ger tented village just above the venue on the side of the Malvern Hills where the participants enjoyed the wilderness cookery programme and slept the night. The event continued the following day with high and low ropes and an adrenalin packed fun day. Kevin Thomas MD of Howdens said ““The whole event was a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills and try new things as well as a chance to find out a little more about ourselves and each other!” Employees’views “The activities were well organised, sufficiently challenging and different to previous experiences” “The wilderness cookery was the surprise package for me and was about 17 times more successful than I thought it was going to be!” “It was awesome – more fun than I thought possible! Probably the most ‘team building’ event we’ve done”
