Fitch trims world growth forecast on U.S.-China trade battle

first_img James Langton Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Business chart with glowing arrows and world map peshkov/123RF Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related news “The trade war is now a reality,” says Brian Coulton, Fitch chief economist, in a statement.. “The recently announced imposition of U.S. tariffs on a further US$200 billion of imports from China will have a material impact on global growth and, even though we have now included the 25% tariff shock in our global economic outlook baseline, the downside risks to our global growth forecasts have also increased.”For 2018, Fitch is expecting global growth to come in at 3.3%, up from 3.2% in 2017. However, growth is “becoming less balanced and less synchronised,” Fitch says.For Canada, the rating agency expects the economy to grow by 2.1% in 2018. “Consumer spending growth has moderated since 2017 and is no longer significantly outpacing overall GDP growth,” the Fitch report states. Its forecast for 2019 is for overall GDP growth to slow to 1.6%, on the assumption that consumer spending growth will continue to decelerate.Notwithstanding the expected deceleration, Fitch expects the Bank of Canada to raise rates by another 25 basis points before the end of this year.On a global basis, Fitch expects a shift to quantitative tightening (QT) next year, even as growth slows.“With the four quantitative easing (QE) central banks (U.S. Federal Reserve., European Central Bank, Bank of England and Bank of Japan) having purchased over US$1 trillion of assets per annum on average since 2009, the prospect of an outright decline in central bank liquidity is likely to have significant ramifications. These could include upward pressures on global bond yields — as the compression of term premiums that followed QE is unwound — and a ratchet up in financial market volatility,” Coulton says. Economy lost 68,000 jobs in May OECD raises outlook for Canadian economic growth this year Stagflation is U.S. economists’ biggest fear, SIFMA says Keywords Economic forecasts U.S. protectionism is now “materially affecting what remains a strong global growth outlook,” leading it to downgrade its global gross domestic product (GDP) forecast for 2019, the New York-based credit rating agency says in a news release.Escalating trade tensions have trimmed 0.2 percentage points from Fitch’s 2019 China growth forecast  to 6.1%, and 0.1 percentage points from the 2019 global forecast to 3.1%. last_img read more

Visual Arts Teacher Wins Logo Competition for Census of Agriculture

first_imgAdvertisements RelatedVisual Arts Teacher Wins Logo Competition for Census of Agriculture FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Kimone Leon, a visual arts teacher and graduate of the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, has been declared winner of the Census of Agriculture 2007 Logo Competition.The competition, which was judged recently, forms part of the preparatory process for the Census of Agriculture to be conducted in February 2007 by the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN).Speaking with JIS News, Communication and Marketing Manager of STATIN, Pamela Blake, said that, “we decided to have a logo competition as part of the publicity plan to alert the population that we will have a Census of Agriculture starting in February of next year”.According to Mrs. Blake, some 65 entries were submitted. “The entries were generally very colourful; however, we thought most of them did not bring across the message to the target audience,” she pointed out.“We were looking for a logo that would do just that,” she said, adding that the judges were particularly interested in an entry to which farmers would be able to identify.“We also wanted something that would be adaptable for print (and) the web and could be used either on a large or small scale. The winning entry encapsulates a lot of what is done in the farming sector,” she explained.In describing the winning entry, Technical Assistant at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts and one of the judges, Cleve Bowen, noted that, “the flora represented by the banana was a good idea in combination with the cattle which was represented by a cow. These are basic staples of farming. animal and food produce. The background, which had a bar chart, suggests that a census was being conducted. Together, I found that these were able to effectively convey the idea of an agricultural census”.For the winning logo, Miss Leon will receive a cash prize of $50,000. The logo will be used on all print collateral material relating to the Census of Agriculture.Every 10 years, STATIN undertakes the census of agriculture to determine the number of farmers in Jamaica, the types of crops being grown, the acres of land utilised in farming and other agricultural data that will form the basis for the development of policies and programmes.The Census of Agriculture 2007 is to be held under the theme: ‘Taking Stock of Agriculture’.Mrs. Blake said it was important that all farmers participate in the census, as they would be providing important information on the contribution of the sector to the economy.“The Census will allow us to update the information that we gathered on the agricultural sector in previous years. The data from the census will reveal changes in the size and structure of farms, all of which is important for planning,” she pointed out.The census will be conducted in close collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Lands between February and July 2007.

Leaders Urged to Anchor Vision for Development Into National Framework for Children

first_imgRelatedLeaders Urged to Anchor Vision for Development Into National Framework for Children RelatedLeaders Urged to Anchor Vision for Development Into National Framework for Children Leaders Urged to Anchor Vision for Development Into National Framework for Children UncategorizedOctober 25, 2006 RelatedLeaders Urged to Anchor Vision for Development Into National Framework for Childrencenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Representative to Jamaica, Bertrand Bainvel has called on political leaders to make every attempt to anchor their visions for national development into a national framework for children.Such a framework, he said, should be “informed by data more than by anecdotes, and financed by resources commensurate to its goals”.The UNICEF representative was speaking today (Oct. 25) at the opening of the two-day Caribbean Child Research Conference being held at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel.According to Mr. Bainvel research on child rights should promote the participation of beneficiaries in its design and findings, so that it systematically looked beyond the averages and reveal disparities based on socio-economic or health status, sex, age and geography.Such research, he said, should “communicate its results beyond academic boundaries”. He further called on the policy and planning community to draft policies and plans for children based on “robust data”, quality analysis, as well as best practices emerging from the non government sector, and to look for opportunities to cooperate with researchers.With these approaches, he asserted, there would be more effective advocacy for improved policies and legislation and greater social investment in children. Mr. Bainvel emphasized that knowledge generation, use of data, and evidence-based planning, were essential strategies to promoting accountability, as without these, policy choices could not be justified to the public.“Accurate data and quality research are key to the development and financing of programmes, services, policies, legislation, and thus the gradual realization of children’s rights,” he told the gathering.The conference, held under the theme: ‘Promoting Child Rights Through Research’, is the first of its kind to be hosted in the English-speaking Caribbean. The forum will present a wide range of research topics with children as the common focus and aims to disseminate the findings of contemporary research in order to improve the awareness of the situation of children in the Caribbean, and effective improvement mechanisms. It will encourage further research and inform the programming and planning of interventions to benefit children.Some of the specific topics to be examined by the participants, which include not just policy planners, but students from a number of secondary level schools, are: early childhood education, violence, HIV and AIDS, parenting, the school as an institution, children’s self-advocacy and participation in governance, and promoting adolescent development through policy environment assessment research.Among the organizations that have partnered to host the conference are: UNICEF; Planning Institute of Jamaica; Child Development Agency; Ministries of Health, and Education and Youth; Sir Arthur Lewis Institute for Social Economic Studies and Caribbean Child Development Centre of the University of the West Indies; Early Childhood Commission; and the Children Issues Coalition.

Demand for interstate travel can jump start airline recovery

first_imgDemand for interstate travel can jump start airline recovery Australia’s commercial airlines are operating at a fraction of their pre-COVID-19 capacity but there is growing optimism within the industry as demand for interstate travel increases.The ACCC’s second Airline Competition in Australia report, released today, shows total passenger numbers for the month of September 2020 were 87 per cent lower than September last year, and airline industry revenues were commensurately lower.However, with signs that all states now have COVID-19 under some control, and with key domestic borders opening up, airlines are increasing capacity to meet pent-up travel demand.“COVID-19 has created some of the most difficult market conditions in Australian aviation history but we are beginning to see cautious optimism among airlines about increasing passenger numbers in the months ahead,” ACCC Chair Rod Sims said.“The bulk of the flying in Australia this year has been within states, mainly in Queensland and Western Australia. But with borders now re-opened, interstate travel will start to look more like it did pre-COVID, particularly with the return of the all-important Sydney-Melbourne-Brisbane golden triangle routes.”“Although the international border will remain closed for the foreseeable future, the demand for domestic holiday and family-reunification travel is expected to drive recovery,” Mr Sims said.“We are mindful that the industry’s optimism is necessarily cautious and the path to recovery is fragile, as we saw with new COVID-19 cases in South Australia during November.”Qantas and Rex gained market share in September at the expense of Virgin, but the report notes the three main carriers’ share of passengers may be volatile given the depressed state of the industry.“We expect airlines’ market shares will move around a bit in the short term as the industry continues operating at reduced capacity. At this stage, it is difficult to know exactly how competition will evolve as the industry emerges from this period,” Mr Sims said.The report outlines a number of significant developments in the airline industry in recent months, including the finalisation of the sale of Virgin to Bain Capital. Virgin has announced plans to position itself as a mid-market carrier with a business product, although several aspects of its service offering are currently under review.“As Australia’s second largest airline, Bain’s direction for Virgin will likely have major implications for competition in the domestic airline industry,” Mr Sims said.Regional operator Rex has further progressed its plans to expand into major domestic routes, and its services between Sydney and Melbourne are due to commence from 1 March 2021.One of the key inputs Rex will need to compete on capital city routes is access to take-off and landing slots. Rex has secured slots for its launch in March 2021, and is working on slots for the next season from April 2021. The Australian Government has initiated a review of demand management at Sydney (Kingsford Smith) Airport and the report includes an overview of the ACCC’s submission to this review.“A fundamental objective of any reform to the existing slot management scheme at Sydney Airport should be to ensure that the allocation results in the most efficient use of slots, and fosters an environment of robust competition between airlines,” Mr Sims said.“With airlines beginning to increase their operations, we will continue to monitor the industry and watch out for signs that competition is being stifled in any way, such as through the inability to access slots at Sydney Airport.”Australian domestic air services – September 2019 to September 2020Source: Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics; Australian domestic airline activity.Note: Data is for regular public transport (i.e. commercial flight operations on fixed schedules and specific routes available to the general public) and does not include charter operations.Busiest routes by monthly capacity – September 2019 and September 2020 Source: Data collected by ACCC from Qantas, Virgin Australia and Rex.BackgroundOn 19 June 2020, the ACCC was directed by the Treasurer, The Hon Josh Frydenberg MP to monitor the prices, costs and profits of Australia’s domestic airline industry and provide quarterly reports to inform Government policy.

From the VC for Research & Innovation: On the partial federal government shutdown

first_imgTerri Fiez, Vice Chancellor for Research & InnovationShutdown News & ResourcesNotice & Guidance for Principal InvestigatorsBreaking Updates Regarding Shutdown Research & Federal Funding News HomepageUniversity of Colorado Boulder Community,As you may know, ongoing budget negotiations have failed to produce a stopgap funding agreement in Congress. The immediate consequence is that portions of the federal government were shut down at midnight on Friday, December 21.CU Boulder received nearly $369 million, or 72 percent of last year’s total research funding, from the federal government. Far more important than just dollars, this funding drives discovery and innovation of global importance in areas such as biosciences, energy, aerospace, fundamental sciences, and earth and environmental sciences, impacting the lives of people across the world.In addition to ramifications related to research funding, a partial shutdown may impact a range of important operations and services, including our staffing through partnerships with local federal labs and a variety of resources that our community depends on.Given this close association with the federal government, we are tracking this issue carefully and monitoring potential impacts on our students, faculty, staff and research programs. We remain hopeful Congress will reach an agreement very soon.In the case of a short-term stoppage, we expect impacts to be manageable. However, should the stoppage last more than a few weeks, those impacts may expand. We are continuing to develop strategies to minimize impacts should the partial shutdown remain unresolved.We are not alone. Research universities, businesses and individuals around the country will experience a range of negative impacts from a prolonged shutdown. Consequently, we are partnering with universities across the nation, lawmakers and others to advocate aggressively for a speedy resolution that will mitigate impacts to our community and those who benefit from our research programs.We will continue to share updates on this situation through our federal funding webpage and CU Boulder Today, as well as direct communications with groups who may be directly affected.Thank you for your continued focus on our important work during this challenging time.Terri Fiez Vice Chancellor for Research & Innovation Research & Innovation Office University of Colorado BoulderCategories:Research & Federal Funding News Published: Dec. 21, 2018 last_img read more
