NASSAU, BAHAMAS— Total taxes and fees collected by the government from the financial sector last year rose 15% to just under $200 million, according to the Central Bank.

The bank noted that the total number of licensed banks and trust companies in the Bahamas had further decreased by 3 to 214.

The findings were included in the bank’s analysis of the financial sector’s gross economic contribution in 2021.

The bank said: “An analysis of financial sector performance showed that total taxes and fees collected by the government increased by 15.1% to $189.2 million in 2021. Underlying this development, transaction taxes on domestic intermediation activities increased by 19.2% to $112.0 million, largely attributable to growth in banking transaction taxes (30.2%) and premium taxes insurance (5%).

“In addition, licensing and registration fees increased 9.6% to $77.2 million, supported by a 25.7% increase in collections from investment funds (11.2% of the total) and 10.6% from international trading companies (17.4% of the total).In addition, claims from banks and trust companies (68.5% of the total) increased by 4.6% , while recoveries from financial and corporate service providers jumped to $1.9 million from $0.5 million in 2021.”

The financial services sector accounts for around 10-15% of the country’s gross domestic product.

The Central Bank noted that data from the Bahamas Financial Services Sector Survey 2021 suggests the sector “continues to face headwinds, with global regulatory standards and efficiency pressures impacting the market. balance sheet and the consolidation of operations”.

“Specifically, the international industry continues to adapt to enhanced tax cooperation, anti-money laundering (AML), counter-terrorist financing (CFT) and counter-proliferation standards. Additionally, amid declining employment levels, the international sector has turned to relocating customers and operations to emerging lucrative opportunities outside of North America and Europe.

“In 2021, the estimated size of the balance sheet of financial sector operations declined, as evidenced by a decline in assets held within the banking sector. In particular, on-balance sheet assets contracted by approximately $23 billion (13 .3%) to $149.8 billion, as reductions in international bank assets offset gains in domestic bank assets,” the Central Bank noted.

According to the regulator, the total number of banks and trust companies licensed in the Bahamas decreased by 3 to 214 in 2021, following a reduction of 4 in 2020.

“Public banks and trust companies have been reduced from 4 to 80, while restricted, inactive and nominated persons have increased from 1 to 134,” it read.

“Public institutions providing domestic and international service arrangement included 48 Bahamian incorporated entities and 12 Euro-currency branches of foreign banks operating in the Bahamas.

“In addition, there were 20 licensed dealers and agents, which included 11 licensed agents (resident trust companies) and 9 licensed dealers (commercial banks) – including 7 clearing banks.”

Wednesday night’s meeting of Red Bank’s charter review commission focused on the forms of government available should the commission recommend a change from the “borough” structure in place since 1908.

The session, conducted via Zoom, centered on a return appearance from municipal government specialist Edward Sasdelli of the state Department of Community Affairs, who detailed the various municipal forms available under New Jersey’s Faulkner law.

Sasdelli also addressed the commission on January 18.

“Choosing the right form of government is important,” he said Wednesday, “but it’s no substitute for hiring the right people and electing the right people. You can have the best form of government, but if you don’t have the right people there, it won’t work.

Here are the slides from Sasdelli’s latest presentation: Red Bank Alternate Forms of Gov’t 040622

The video of the session is available on the commission’s Facebook page and will be posted on its YouTube channel.

The commission’s next session is scheduled for Tuesday, April 19, when it expects to hear from Julia Sass Rubin of Rutgers University’s Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.

Backed by a German bank, the government will install electric buses on the roads of Tamil Nadu – The New Indian Express https://nagolovu.com/backed-by-a-german-bank-the-government-will-install-electric-buses-on-the-roads-of-tamil-nadu-the-new-indian-express/ Sun, 06 Mar 2022 08:00:00 +0000 https://nagolovu.com/backed-by-a-german-bank-the-government-will-install-electric-buses-on-the-roads-of-tamil-nadu-the-new-indian-express/ Express press service CHENNAI: The Institute of Road Transport (IRT), the technical arm of the Department of Transport, will soon launch a tender for the purchase of 500 electric buses. “Bus specifications are being finalized and tenders will be launched soon.

Express press service

CHENNAI: The Institute of Road Transport (IRT), the technical arm of the Department of Transport, will soon launch a tender for the purchase of 500 electric buses. “Bus specifications are being finalized and tenders will be launched soon. About 80% of the cost will be funded by KfW (German Development Bank),” a well-placed IRT source said.

The tendering procedure, however, will only begin after obtaining approval from the Madras High Court, which had suspended the purchase of buses that are not suitable for disabled people. “The hearing in the case could take place within the next two weeks,” an official said.

In the 2019-2020 budget, it was stated that 2,000 e-buses will be purchased under a Memorandum of Understanding signed with the London-based C-40 Cities Climate Leadership Group in March 2018. The government also announced that it had signed an agreement with KfW (German Development Bank) for the acquisition of 2,000 electric buses. However, no funds have been released.

The plan to purchase electric buses was also provided for in the 2020-21 budget, but funding was lacking. In the 2021-22 budget, out of the Rs 3,820 crore allocated to the transport department, Rs 451.5 crore was earmarked for the purchase of electric vehicles through a loan from KfW.

Urban planners have estimated that the transition from fuel-powered mobility to battery-powered vehicles will only be profitable when the share of private electric vehicles increases. Dr Abdul Razak Mohamed, a professor at the Vijayawada School of Planning and Architecture who studied public transport in Chennai, said the operation of electric buses in India is still in its infancy.

“Even in New Delhi, it has only been introduced on a trial basis. Uninterrupted operation is the only way electric buses will attract more investment. For this, charging stations should be installed in large number in bus depots and highways,” he added.

The first trial of an electric bus was conducted in Chennai in July 2017. In 2019, automaker Ashok Leyland introduced two electric buses on the Chennai Central-Thiruvanmiyur and Koyambedu-Broadway routes for MTC, to have them canceled in a matter of minutes. month.

During the trial phase, the private company took on the maintenance expenses of the buses and the MTC took the revenue from the buses.

In August 2019, the Center’s Department of Heavy Industries approved 525 electric buses for eight cities in the state under Phase II of the Faster Adoption and Manufacture of Electric Vehicles in India (FAME India Scheme) scheme. .

That plan was scrapped last year after the Center refused to grant a grant to the TN transportation department. “The purchase of electric buses under FAME II is not financially viable. There were a few terms and conditions that go against state government policy,” the official said.

The Bank of Cyprus Borrowers Association (SYPRODAT) calls for an immediate response from the Central Bank of Cyprus, the government and the Parliament regarding the increased fees of the largest Cypriot banks.

In a statement, the Association notes that the fees are unacceptable and provocative because they are borne by all borrowers, the majority of whom have suffered a drop in income or live on government subsidies due to the pandemic.

“the action of these banks is all the more provocative as they themselves admit that the increase in fees is made to cover the loss of banking income due to the prevailing low interest rates”

The Association advises borrowers to reply to these letters from the banks that they do not accept these increases and that they reserve their rights. In this way, the question of borrowers remains open, he points out.

SYPRODAT asserts that “the action of these banks is all the more provocative” as they themselves admit that the increase in charges is made to cover the loss of bank income due to the prevailing low interest rates.

The Association, according to the press release, has now gathered all the necessary information and is preparing to file a complaint with the Commission for the Protection of Competition as soon as possible.

SPYRODAT also indicates that the relevant law prohibits restrictive cartels. In particular, general partnerships whose purpose is to directly or indirectly fix the purchase or sale price is prohibited. “This is exactly what is happening in Cyprus at the moment,” the statement concluded.

NEW DELHI: The government signed two loan agreements of Rs 2,074 crore with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for an affordable housing project in Tamil Nadu and a water sanitation program in Uttarakhand , a statement announced on Tuesday.

The government and the AfDB signed a loan agreement of 150 million dollars (approximately 1,132 crore rupees) to provide access to inclusive, resilient and sustainable housing for the urban poor in the state of Tamil Nadu.

In addition, a loan of $ 125 million (approximately Rs 942 crore) was signed to improve access to safe and affordable drinking water supply and inclusive sanitation services throughout the city of Dehradun and Nainital in Uttarakhand, according to the statement.

The affordable housing project is aligned with the government’s development priorities and policies for urban sector development, especially the flagship program PMAY-Housing for All (Urban), he said.

“Rapid urbanization and growth in Tamil Nadu has created a housing shortage, especially for low-income households. The project will provide access to affordable housing infrastructure and services to vulnerable and disadvantaged households and catalyze private sector investment in affordable housing, Takeo Konishi, country director of AfDB’s resident mission in India, said.

Almost half of Tamil Nadu’s 72 million people (7.2 crore) live in urban areas, making it one of the most urbanized states in India, the statement said.

Through the Tamil Nadu Urban Housing Development Council, the project will build housing units in nine different locations and move around 6,000 households vulnerable to natural hazards to safer locations, among others.

Part of the ADB loan will be invested by the state government in the form of equity in the Tamil Nadu Shelter Fund.

For the Uttarakhand project, the loan assistance will meet the need to modernize urban services in the rapidly expanding capital of Dehradun and Nainital which attracts thousands of tourists every day, according to a separate statement.

Improving water and sanitation services will also promote better hygiene practices that will help protect people from future pandemics and epidemics, said Rajat Kumar Mishra, deputy secretary of the finance ministry.

The project complements previous AfDB support to improve the water supply and sanitation service (WSS) in the two cities with an emphasis on the provision of high quality services and a sanitation approach to the city. ‘city-wide to make it profitable,’ Konishi said.

As part of this project, 136 kilometers (km) of water pipe system will be constructed to replace faulty water networks in southern Dehradun to ensure a reliable and continuous water supply for the benefit of approximately 40,000 people, including 4,000 poor and vulnerable urban groups.

Water meters will also be installed in approximately 5,400 households to promote efficient water use and billing of consumption.

In addition, the project will establish wastewater treatment plants in Dehradun, supported by 256 km of closed underground sewer networks and 117 km of stormwater drainage networks benefiting approximately 138,000 residents, including 15,000 urban poor and vulnerable.

A total of 17,410 households in Dehradun will be connected to this sewerage system, according to the statement. The AfDB will provide a Technical Assistance (TA) grant of USD 250,000 from its Special Technical Assistance Fund and another USD 750,000 grant from its Climate Change Fund for this project.

By JOHN T. WARD

hot topicA study that could lead to a historic overhaul of the governance of the Red Bank and jeopardize three decades of Democratic Party domination, began Tuesday evening.

On the agenda of the newly formed Red Bank Charter Review Commission were key issues: asking for a budget, finding a lawyer, and setting a meeting schedule.

On the unofficial program: learning to use the microphones.

Kate Okeson speaking to resident Stephen Hecht, above. Below, Mike DuPont speaks, flanked by Borough Attorney Greg Cannon, left, and Ben Forest. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge.)

Member Nancy Facey-Blackwood called the commission a “unique opportunity to study our current government” and “find the best solution to help Red Bank move forward.”

The nine-month study of the city’s 1908 “charter” – not the Red Bank Charter School, as some commentators have speculated on social media – could lead to a referendum on replacing the form of government of the city district by one of the multiple options.

It could also open the door to non-partisan elections, in which candidates who avoid party machinery have a better chance of getting on a ballot.

With around 20 family members and borough residents watching, Mayor Pasquale Menna swore in the commission members: Blackwood, Mike DuPont, Ben Forest, Kate Okeson and Mark Taylor.

They won their seats in the November 2 election, when voters approved a referendum calling for study and chose the commission members from among 11 candidates.

“We’re in a happy medium,” Okeson said. “We are not politicians. We are at the service of our residents.

In its first series of actions, the commission:

• Chose Blackwood as president and Taylor as vice-president. Blackwood also chairs the Environment Committee; Taylor is a former board member.

• Agreed to request a budget of $ 50,000 from the Borough Council, four-fifths of this amount to be used for legal fees.

• Agreed to solicit proposals for legal work, at a target rate of $ 150 per hour, for a lawyer to attend meetings, provide advice and write a final report.

• Together Proposed a bi-monthly meeting schedule: the second Thursday and the fourth Monday (or fourth Tuesday), at 6.30 p.m. These days were chosen based on the availability of the boardroom. CORRECTION: Meeting dates were incorrectly reported in the original version of this post.

Several members of the commission expressed the hope that in addition to face-to-face sessions, the borough would offer a virtual option.

Blackwood said the study would consist of three phases: a review of the current form of government; a look at other forms; and “hit the road” with a series of hearings to seek public input.

As is the norm in boardroom meetings, handling the microphones was an issue. This time, however, the tables were reversed, as Menna, sitting in the audience rather than on the platform, shouted “we can’t hear” as the members spoke without turning on their microphones.

This prompted Forest to remind his coworkers to turn their mics on when they spoke: his was off when he said that.

The next session was scheduled for December 22, at 6.30 a.m., with the approval of the resolutions formalizing the above-expected actions.

A $ 212 million program led by the Ghanaian government and supported by the World Bank’s Digital Economy for Africa (DE4A) initiative aims to provide inclusive access to digital technologies to young Ghanaian leaders.

Ghana has long served as a hub for telecommunications cables connecting Africa and Europe. But limited access and a lack of technical skills have put digital resources beyond the reach of many Ghanaians.

To this end, the World Bank says the right mix of training, mentoring and access to online technologies can help Ghanaians with health services, education, employment and entrepreneurship opportunities. .

The $ 212 million project, according to the World Bank, aims to provide inclusive access to digital technologies, build institutional capacity and accelerate the uptake of digital services. As part of a continent-wide effort to bridge the digital divide, it has helped connect several universities and improved broadband bandwidth for more than 200,000 students and faculty to date. The project also offers grants to young entrepreneurs.

The project is supported by the World Bank’s Digital Economy for Africa (DE4A) initiative, which was launched in 2019 to ensure that every individual, business and government in Africa will be digitally enabled by 2030, in line with the African Union digital transformation strategy. .

The eTransform project supports the digital entrepreneurship program through three technology hubs: the Ghana Tech Lab, the Ghana Innovation Hub in Accra and the Kumasi Business Incubator in Kumasi. To date, they have helped build the entrepreneurial skills of over 11,000 young people.

A total of 49 startups have been created and more than 1,200 companies have been supported through access to a workspace, mentoring and training. They also help individuals and teams with business ideas move from concept stage to market entry.

The project is inclusive. The Ghana Tech Lab alone has trained more than 5,400 young people in digital skills, half of whom are women. Its core curriculum begins with a 3-month digital skills training period.

Some interns are selected for the incubation program, which combines more advanced digital skills with business training. Some trained startups receive seed money, while other interns are offered internships with partners.

“When you are in a startup, you cannot implement all of your ideas because some of them may not be feasible, or you may not have the resources to pursue them,” said Rosemary Kwofi. , Managing Director of Built Accounting. “But thanks to the eTransform project, we were able to determine what is potentially doable… without it, it probably would have taken us a lot longer to get to the point where we can say okay, that’s what works for us. “

The eTransform Ghana project is also improving various government service delivery using information and communication technology (ICT). The project supports 20 ministries, departments and agencies (MDA).

For example, the e-Justice program is an initiative of the Ministry of Communications and Digitization and Judicial Services of Ghana. The program uses digital technologies to transform Ghana’s justice system, for example, by digitizing cases and applying online solutions to improve court management and administrative and financial systems in high courts in Accra, the capital. .

This involved developing a case management system to improve the efficiency of the justice process in Ghana.

The eTransform project is also at the heart of Ghana’s response to COVID-19, where the focus on restoring jobs and livelihoods through digital transformation has made it essential to promote economic recovery. His work has contributed to greater Internet bandwidth in government offices, health centers, hospitals, schools and universities in more than 250 districts, including underserved areas of the country.

“This project continues to provide a solid foundation for the comprehensive digital response to the pandemic in Ghana,” said Kaoru Kimura, senior digital development specialist at the World Bank and project team leader.

More and more Ghanaians are enjoying better access to broadband in business, entrepreneurship, health, education and overall quality of life. In addition, entrepreneurship learning and training develop skills and connect students and job seekers with employment opportunities.
