Thiam, who came under intense shareholder pressure to stand down following his £22.7bn bid for the Asian life insurer, told investors he aims to double Asian premiums by 2013, delivering £300m to group turnover. He said a more diverse product mix coupled with better returns on investments and benefits of scale would contribute to the gains. “Prudential aspires to be one of the winners in the post-financial crisis world, with all of our businesses performing strongly. Our strategy is sound and we continue to pursue it with the operating discipline that has delivered excellent results on all measures over a sustained period,” said Thiam. Shore Capital analyst Eamonn Flanagan said the targets for growth and cash were ambitious. “We view these as challenging especially given the current economic climate, but they should demonstrate the virtue and scale of the group’s operations in Asia.” Prudential reported £713m pre-tax profit in 2009 and a stronger-than-expected 17 per cent rise in quarterly sales in November, helped by growth in its Asian markets.

By Eric Pfeiffer – Apr 20, 2021 Facebook Twitter Questions to Answer Before USDA can Establish a ‘Carbon Credit Bank’ SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Questions to Answer Before USDA can Establish a ‘Carbon Credit Bank’ Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/carbon-markets-wrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Carbon credit markets are showing potential as a possible revenue stream for farmers, thanks to carbon sequestration practices they can implement on their operations. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack has come out in favor of the USDA operating as a potential “carbon bank” for U.S. producers that want to participate in carbon markets. Robert Bonnie is President Biden’s nominee for USDA Undersecretary for Food Production and Conservation. He says some questions need to be answered before the agency gets to that point.“Is there a role for USDA to help finance and to partner with the private sector? Not to structure things in a way that competes with the private sector, but to think about structuring things in a way that provides more stability, as well as the importance of getting the resources to the producer.”Carbon credit markets have been around for a long time. Bonnie says the challenge is making it financially worth it for producers to take the time and effort to implement sequestration practices that will cost money upfront.“What we’re trying to do here is how do we incentivize reducing greenhouse gases through carbon sequestration or reducing emissions themselves, and so there’s an interest in being more performance-oriented. And so, thinking about some flexible tools of how USDA can do that. Are there some more flexible tools you can think about?”There are challenges for farmers who want to take part in the current carbon market program. Bonnie says USDA will likely need to partner with private-sector organizations to help producers overcome those challenges.“High transaction costs; I would argue there’s some uncertainty about what the prices are right now. And so, is there a role for USDA to help finance and to partner with the private sector.”Bonnie was nominated to be USDA Undersecretary for Food Production and Conservation by President Biden last week.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleBraun, Stabenow Reintroduce Growing Climate Solutions ActNext articleEnhanced Bayer Carbon Program Offers Growers New Opportunities in 2021 and Beyond Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter SHARE

Director Alexandre Solombe explained that he has so far managed to delay implementation of the order by requesting an official explanation for irregularities in the way it was issued.Solombe said that, according to the law, the order should have been issued jointly by the minister of posts and telecommunications and the minister of social communication, who supervises the news media. The order also failed to stipulate the date from which the suspension takes effect.On the advice of his lawyers, Solombe is also considering a court appeal, which could help to delay implementation of the order.————————————————-10.07 Government suspends independent radio station’s broadcasts for 180 daysReporters Without Borders condemns the government’s decision on 8 July to suspend independent Radio Despertar’s broadcasts for 180 days on the grounds that their current range, 400 km, is much more the 50 km stipulated in its licence. The suspension comes just one month before an election campaign is due to begin on 5 August.“Restricting media pluralism in the run-up to legislative elections will obstruct the necessary democratic debate,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Furthermore, the measure is illegal as it has been taken under decree-law 69/97, which was voided by a new press law in 2006.”The suspension was decided by the Ministry of Posts, Telecommunications and Angolan Media and was communicated to Radio Despertar director Alexandre Solombe by the Angolan Institute for Communications (INACOM). Solombe said his station is the victim of “an electoral manoeuvre by the government in the run-up to legislative elections.”Created under the peace accords between the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) and the ruling Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), Radio Despertar began broadcasting in 2006.The station has been very successful in the capital, Luanda, especially in the suburbs, where many listeners participate in its phone-in programmes. Its current affairs programmes have been particularly popular in the approach to the elections. AngolaAfrica Organisation News Follow the news on Angola October 9, 2020 Find out more
