National interests and NAM

first_imgLast week, there was a Conference of the Non Aligned Movement (NAM) next door in Venezuela, but the resounding silence in the local and world media about the event that involved 120 nations is perhaps symbolic of the waning of this once powerful organ of the poor and the powerless of the world. It was conceived as an alternative path between the two superpowers – the US and USSR – engaged in their post-WWII Cold War that became very hot in a number of colonies of the Empires.NAM was actually conceptualised during the Asia-Africa Conference held in Bandung, Indonesia in 1955. The conference was led by Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, Egyptian President Gamel Abdel Nasser, Ghanaian President Kwame Nkrumah and Indonesian leader Sukarno, and brought together leaders of 29 states from the two continents. It was formally launched in 1961 in Yugoslavia. During the Conference of Foreign Ministers of Non-Aligned countries held in Guyana from August 8-11, 1972, a monument to the four founders was unveiled by the then President, Arthur Chung at Company Path Gardens, in front of St George’s Cathedral.This Conference was the high point of Guyana’s then vigorous international diplomacy that was located within the NAM’s insistence that countries must be allowed to pursue paths that were aligned to their real interests rather than those of the superpowers. While the decline of the importance and interest in NAM – how many Guyanese know of the monument, much less have visited it? – might be due to the end of the Cold War in 1989, the question of “national interest” as a guide to the activities of the vast majority of the members that remain enmeshed in poverty is still critically relevant.And this is why it was somewhat surprising that Guyana did not attend the Conference. In general, some may explain that as due to NAM’s declining importance: only nine leaders showed up in Venezuela last week. But then that could be due to the fact that the annual United Nations General Assembly meet that attracts most world leaders was held almost simultaneously. The fact remains, however, that representatives of most of the member countries did attend.And this is why Guyana should have been there. Just as during the heyday of NAM when Venezuela tried to burnish its global credentials, our Government could have followed the example of the then Government of Forbes Burnham which adroitly used the organisation to present Guyana’s case on the Venezuelan-precipitated border controversy. Guyana embarrassed Venezuela then as a larger power imitating the superpowers and bullying a small poor nation and Guyana could have done the same in the present.Maduro went out of his way to host a successful NAM conference by stressing his “progressive”’ credentials and more than anything else, we could have applied pressure on him and his Government by showing the world how Venezuela was still a bully. To wit, that they are insisting on continuing with the UN Secretary General “Good Offices” process that has not produced any progress on the controversy and yet refuse to agree to the juridical process that is also an option available.Guyana could have demonstrated to the delegates the reasonableness of our position: why would a country deny having an impartial and credible UN organisation like the World Court at The Hague settle the border controversy, unless it was very unsure of the bona fides of its case. Attending the NAM conference would not have been at the expense of President Granger not attending the UN General Assembly where he admirably pleaded with Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to move the process forward. But any proposal by the latter would have to be agreed to by Venezuela and this is where Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge could have brought immense pressure for Maduro to do so, via the representatives of 120 countries who were attending a “progressive” conference.last_img read more

Decision on establishing local law school yet to reach cabinet – AG

first_imgAs another year reaches with the debacle of the University of Guyana (UG) law students completing their legalBasil Williamsstudies at Hugh Wooding Law School (HWLS) in Trinidad still unresolved, the proposed alternative of a local law school is yet to reach Cabinet.Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs Basil Williams in a recent press conference noted that he had previously mentioned it was in the pipeline to initiate plans to establish a private/public local law school here in Guyana but pointed out, “the matter has not yet reached cabinet.”However, Minister Williams noted: “It doesn’t make sense to wait until it reaches cabinet to start exploring the pros and cons of establishing the local law school.”According to the AG: “There is no doubt that Guyanese students excel at the law programme available at UG and even the HWLS.” He noted that the entirety of the issue was due to the historical background surrounding the nature of law studies in the region.He highlighted that the government (whether past or present) does not have any privity of contract, as the matter was a triangular affair between UG, HWLS and Council of Legal Education (CLE).His noted that his administration had merely intervened to come to an amicable solution to the problem.According to the AG, one of the solutions of his intervention was the ability “to get Caricom to allow those students to be accepted in year one” and “In the second year I had to intervene again to get them to pay half the fees that were increased tremendously. Pay half upfront and then half before they graduate…so we need to have these things settled.”Minister Williams blamed the previous administration for cancelling the subsidising of contributions to HWLS and CLE but said when the matter involving contributions to the programme was first discussed in Cabinet, there was no funding for that exercise.In fact, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall had said that contributions each territory makes is used to subsidise the tuition fees that students are required to pay. “This practice was stopped by Guyana 15 years ago and never affected the admission of Guyanese students into the Law School. All that it meant was that the Guyanese student no longer benefitted from a subsidised tuition fee and therefore, have been paying the full tuition fee since.”Nandlall had said further that his administration was able to facilitate a 10-year agreement towards the automatic entry of local law students to the HWLS following negotiations with his Government and that body, but noted that they exited office in 2015, before the agreement could be signed.“In the end, not only did we succeed in retaining the quota of 25 for Guyanese national graduates but were able to secure an additional 10 places for non-Guyanese national graduates of the said Law programme…I explained to him (Williams) that the hard work is finished and that all he needs to do is to ensure that the agreement which was being drafted by UG and UWI be signed and taken to the CLE for their signature because it is a tripartite agreement.That’s the issue; why after one year, the negotiated agreement has not been signed?” Nandlall had questioned.At the last council meeting, the Head of UG Law Department Ronald Singh indicated that they were ready to sign and make some concessions but the matter was sent to subcommittee by chairman of CLE Jacqueline Samuels-Brown but the status of this is still unknown.Williams had come in for some criticism after stating last year that establishing a law school locally was not a priority.Last year the 25 students were denied automatic entry to HWLS by CLE, which cited overcrowding of the facility. Following this, the calls for a local law school took on new urgency.President David Granger speaking on the matter, had highlighted that Jamaica, Trinidad and Bahamas all have their own law schools with Barbados setting up their own and it was up to Guyana to fully integrate itself into the tertiary system of the West Indies.last_img read more

Jags Aviation to build US$3.5M hangar

first_imgWith major plans in the pipeline to expand its services beyond Guyana, Jags Aviation Incorporated has invested some US.5 million to construct a hangar at the Eugene F Correia International Airport in Ogle, East Coast Demerara (ECD).The sod turning ceremony for the modern multimillion-dollar aircraft facility was done on Tuesday at Ogle by Minister of State, Joseph Harmon and Alana Tiwarie, Executive of BK International, the company which took over Jags Aviation in 2014.The new hangar will be constructed at the southern end of the airport, which facilitates mainly domestic and regional flights in and out of the country. The hangar will contain state-of-the-art conveniences necessary for the maintenance and protection of the company’s fleet of five aircraft.Owner of BK International, Brian Tiwarie; his daughter, Alana and Minister of State, Joseph Harmon at the site of Jags’ Aviation hangarIt was disclosed that company officials are preparing to travel to Miami to take possession of a new aircraft to add to the fleet, with the hopes of expanding Jags’ services to Caribbean destinations. At its establishment, Jags Aviation was given Cabinet’s approval to acquire as many as 15 aircraft, including a helicopter.Owner of BK International, Brian Tiwarie, told media operatives at the sod turning ceremony that his company has been breaking new ground in the local aviation sector over the past two years and he was confident that this trend would continue.“We think that we can make a big input into the aviation sector. We are just over a year old and we already acquired five aircraft,” he pointed out.The local business tycoon went on to say that his company was not competing with the other operators, but was operating on a level of its own.“We are buying aircraft actually, totally different from the other operators and that’s costing us a lot more because have to train people more. Only last week, we just had two trainers here from Poland,” Tiwarie stated.Meanwhile, Minister Harmon welcomed the investment and lauded the company for contributing to the development of the Eugene F Correia International Airport, which has undergone massive transformation over the years.“We have seen a lot of development taking place here at Ogle and it is in keeping with President (David) Granger’s commitment to ensure that we have a quality service provided to our hinterland,” he stated.The Minister noted that traffic to the hinterland has increased significantly; hence, the need for improved services.“This development here is going to improve the quality of service provided here… the hinterland is the heart and lungs of Guyana and to the extent to which we can provide quality service to the hinterland, it is to that extent that Guyana will develop and develop rapidly,” Harmon stated.Jags’ Aviation is currently housed in the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) hangar. As such, the company has assured that it would be returning the favour and would be offering space at its new state-of-the-art hangar to small carriers operating at the airport.last_img read more

How could Everton’s team change between now and the end of the transfer window

first_img How many more will Everton add this summer? 1 It has been all change at Everton this summer regarding transfers as Ronald Koeman has effectively bought an entirely new spine with the help of Farhad Moshiri’s money.Positivity is high at Goodison Park, despite the club selling Romelu Lukaku, and Ross Barkley being deemed surplus to requirements.The headline-grabbing move was the return of Wayne Rooney from Manchester United while Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Sandro Ramirez and Davy Klaassen all look like smart purchases.Everton also have a cluster of young talent to choose from but who else could possibly come through the door as Koeman looks to turn the Toffees into genuine top four contenders?Everton’s current first choice XI:The big shock here is regarding Rooney who, we think, may find himself on the bench if he can’t keep up his goalscoring form.Seamus Coleman’s horrid broken leg will require him to spend a significant amount of time on the sidelines but he could return later on this season.Up top Sandro is unproven in the league but to grab a Spanish under-21 international of his calibre for just over £5million is a steal in today’s market.Elsewhere Davy Klaassen will hope to be the creator in midfield and, after flip-flopping between Maarten Stekelenburg and Joel Robles last season, Everton fans will be delighted to have a certain number one goalkeeper in Pickford.Everton’s potential first choice XI after the transfer window closes: The big new addition is that of Gylfi Sigurdsson who’s arrival from Swansea seems to be a matter of when rather than if.Olivier Giroud was a long time target for Koeman as well but the Frenchman appears to want to stay at Arsenal so, instead, the Everton boss is apparently targeting Danny Welbeck.If the former Manchester United striker can stay fit he could be a valuable asset for the Toffees should he join up.However, considering the team Everton had last season compared to this one, the club have done incredibly well in the window.Combine the new talent with the youth and the Toffees have a squad that could really achieve something.last_img read more

Man City ‘could not afford’ £25m-rated Jonny Evans, claims Pep Guardiola

first_img1 Manchester City failed to sign West Bromwich Albion centre-back Jonny Evans this summer because the Premier League giants ‘could not afford’ his £25million price tag, according to Pep Guardiola.With club captain Vincent Kompany in a constant battle with his fitness, Guardiola had hoped to shore up his defence in the summer transfer window as he looks to build a team capable of challenging for domestic and European titles.Virgil van Dijk was apparently an option for the Blues but deemed Southampton’s £60m valuation too high.Northern Ireland international Evans was seen as a more affordable option but after learning of City’s interest, West Brom hiked up their asking price.City had a bid of £18million turned down while West Brom rejected offers of £10million and £23million from Leicester City.And Guardiola has revealed that mega-rich City were not prepared to meet the Baggies’ valuation.“My colleague [West Brom boss] Tony Pulis put a price that we couldn’t afford at that moment,” said the City manager.“I don’t know about the summer or next season but now he’s a player for West Brom. We will survive.“In the end we spent money, we sold players. We bought five players who cost around £35m each. It’s not a big issue because we sold a lot. We’ve got money to invest again.“I’m happy with the squad and we’ll move forward with that.”Among the five players signed by City over the summer, three were full-backs, with Kyle Walker, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy joining the club.Asked is a central defender was ever a priority for the Blues, Guardiola added: “We wanted one but we were not able. It wasn’t possible.“We had a little bit more money to spend but not that much. We cannot go without any full-backs, which were a real priority.“If [Eliaquim] Mangala had gone I’m pretty sure we would’ve bought a new one. Because he stayed it made no sense to buy another.“We cannot change 11 players. We changed some last season, five in that season and with four in one position. Maybe you believe that because we’re Manchester City we could do that [buy a new one]. We are going to survive in that position.“To change a team, you don’t only need one transfer window. We need more time. Even with two windows it’s not possible. We have no regrets, no complaints. The club made a huge effort.” Jonny Evans stayed at West Brom this summer despite interest from Man City and Leicester last_img read more

Juventus midfielder says he was racial abuse by fans during Serie A clash

first_imgJuventus’ French midfielder Blaise Matuidi says he was the victim of racist abuse during his side’s Serie A match away to Cagliari on Saturday night.The 30-year-old, who joined Juve last summer from Paris Saint-Germain, wrote on his official Facebook page that he had been targeted by “weak people (who) try to intimidate with hate”.His comments came just two days after another Serie A side, Hellas Verona, were hit with a partial stadium ban after Matuidi was racially abused by their supporters on December 30 last year.Matuidi wrote on his social media page after the 1-0 win at Caliari: “Today I experienced racism during the match.“Weak people try to intimidate with hate. I am not a hater and can only be sorry for those who set bad examples. Football is a way to spread equality, passion and inspiration and this is what I am here for. Peace.”Italian football has been marred by various incidents of racial abuse in recent years,In January 2013 AC Milan refused to play on in a friendly against Pro Patria after Kevin-Prince Boateng was subjected to abuse, while Inter Milan were fined 50,000 euros the following month after AC Milan forward Mario Balotelli was targeted by monkey chants.
