Eurobond sales to help Costa Rica pay down debt

first_imgNo related posts. Vice President Luis Liberman and Finance Vice Minister Juan Carlos Pacheco announced Wednesday evening that the Finance Ministry received $1 billion from the issuance of debt bonds – known as Eurobonds – on the international market.Liberman said the government would use half the money to pay the public debt in dollars over coming months.Pacheco said that 80 percent of participating firms bought titles. Investment fund managers acquired 76 percent of the bonds, and of these, 51 percent was purchased by U.S. investors. European and Asian investors acquired little less than half, and Costa Rican investors took 2 percent.Liberman added that the bond issue is the biggest in the country’s history. “Costa Rica has been absent from international markets since 2004, because we were paying the foreign debt with domestic debt, affecting private business activity and increasing the government’s debt interests,” he said.BenefitsPresident Laura Chinchilla called the operation to obtain financing from the Eurodollar market “highly successful for the country, for the improvement of public finances and for reducing pressure on interest rates caused by the fiscal deficit.”Earlier this week, financial experts speculated about the possibility that Eurobond transactions could keep the exchange rate to the lower band and push a decrease in the Basic Passive Rate (BPR).Consulting firm Aldesa posted on its website Tuesday that negotiations in the Foreign Currency Negotiation Market amounted to $11.5 million, which could mean that starting Wednesday, after the government’s announcement, the exchange rate could remain permanently at the lower band (₡500) if profits were exchanged into colones.But Liberman quickly dismissed this option and explained that the main objective of the issuance is to use half the obtained funds to reduce the cost of interest on government debt, both foreign and domestic, without adding pressure on the exchange market.Exporters had expressed concern about a fixed exchange rate. Last month, Chamber of Exporters President Mónica Segnini told The Tico Times it could hurt business, because “the colón equivalent of unit sales remains stagnant, while colón costs increase with local inflation.” Exporters also believe it will be difficult for the government to hold the exchange rate at ₡500 in the medium term.Lieberman said it is difficult to estimate benefits, but “at least we know it will keep BPR from reaching levels of up to 11 percent, like it did a few months ago.”He also said the operation saved the government ₡30 billion ($60 million) in interest due to the substitution of domestic debt with foreign debt at lower rates.An additional $500 million will be used to pay down debt, some of it in colones, “but the payments will be under a plan defined by the Finance Ministry and the Central Bank, to avoid affecting the exchange rate,” the vice president said.The Eurobonds RouteThe Eurobonds plan began last July when lawmakers passed a bill authorizing the issuance of up to $4 billion in debt bonds.In September, Chinchilla signed the bill into law.On Nov. 16, the government issued $1 billion in dollar-denominated 10-year bonds, and on Nov. 21, the Central Bank confirmed the entry of the funds.Pacheco said that despite being a complex process, “it was carried out in a record time of two and a half months, meeting the proposed schedule and in full compliance with the law.”He also highlighted one of the most important achievements was that the issuance obtained the lowest interest rate in the history of Costa Rica’s participation in the international market (4.25 percent).During the process, technical groups from Citigroup and Deutsche Bank, responsible for the issuance, visited 40 firms, 80 percent of which invested in the Costa Rican bonds, signaling confidence in the country’s economy despite the current economic situation internationally.Regarding the possibility of a future bonds issue, Liberman said, “it is premature to consider it.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Gran Final tournament to draw diehard rugby fans young novices

first_imgRelated posts:Sympathetic Dutch celebrate victory in Escazú Keylor Navas puts on a show in Real Madrid win Costa Rica’s Eduardo Li pleads not guilty in FIFA corruption scandal NFL: Coldplay honored by Super Bowl but puzzled by game This weekend, the Rugby Federation hosts its “Gran Final” between El Universitarios Club de Rugby (UCRugby) and Stag Rugby Football Club, based in San José. This final match will determine who wins this year’s National Championship – the 15th such series in the Federation’s history.“When I got here to Costa Rica,” said Lucas Withington, “there was only one team. Everybody knew we had to have two teams in order to have a competition.”Withington was born and raised in Argentina, but he came to Costa Rica eight years ago. Since then, Withington has become quite the busy resident: He has served as head chef of a restaurant, he owns a hostel in Los Yoses, and he fashions hand-made grills. But Withington has also become a major proponent of rugby, and his enthusiasm and drive have proved infectious.“My father was a rugby player,” he recalled recently to The Tico Times. “I was six years old when I started. You need a lot of effort to play rugby. The big thing is, you see the personality, you see what the person is [made of].”In many ways, rugby is the perfect mix of soccer and American football: Players carry the ball and move gradually down the field, blocking and tackling each other as they go. But the actions take more time than gridiron football, and the sport is played without helmets or serious padding. Like soccer, rugby doesn’t require much more than a ball and a level stretch of grass.“It’s a brutal sport played by gentlemen,” said Withington with a customary chuckle.This year, the Gran Final will appeal to more than seasoned rugby fans. The San José Rugby Club has personally invited 120 area children to participate in a daylong event called Get Into Rugby. The boys and girls range in age from two to 18 years old, and activities include yoga, basketball, and tango lessons as well as rugby. All visitors can partake in food and live music as well.True to the “rugger” tradition, adult players and fans will retire to a bar in Los Yoses to celebrate the end of the championship. For every beer sold at the after-party, 100 colones will benefit rugby initiatives.“That is the [ritual],” said Withington. “You have the best match you can in the field, like warriors. But then you invite the other team to beer and food.”Tournament takes place Sept. 7 at the French-Costa Rican School, Concepción de Tres Ríos. Free. Info: Rugby Federation website. Facebook Comments Not long ago, Costa Rican rugby was still obscure. Few locals spoke of “hookers” or “scrums.” It was nearly impossible to find someone who could even explain the rules.All of that has changed in the past few years: the Rugby Federation of Costa Rica now involves hundreds of players each season. “Football clubs,” as teams are known, have popped up in such towns as Heredia, Cartago, and Coronado. Fans actually show up to watch games. While the Rugby Federation has existed under different names since 1984, the sport is finally catching mainstream attention.last_img read more

An agonising attempt to break the deadlock

first_imgBy Christos P. PanayiotidesTHE Security Council, in its resolution 2453 (2019), requested the UN Secretary-General to submit a report by 15 April on the progress attained towards reaching a consensus starting point for meaningful results-oriented negotiations for resolving the Cyprus problem.In the resolution, the Security Council also urged the sides to agree terms of reference which would constitute a consensus starting point for such negotiations, leading to a settlement within a foreseeable horizon and to renew their political will and commitment to a settlement under United Nations auspices.  The report, which focuses on developments from October 6, 2018 to April 10, 2019, was submitted by the due date.Reading the report leaves little room for doubt that the progress attained over the past six months in reaching the objectives that were set by the Security Council was very limited, if any.In his report, the Secretary-General is very careful not to assign blame for this lack of progress.  To the extent that he does, he blames both sides on an equal basis in an attempt to avoid alienating any one of the parties, at what he considers to be a critical stage of the process.I am certain that in the event of a failure to break the deadlock, he will not be as reserved as he is at this stage in assigning responsibilities.  It follows that the two sides are well advised not to make such a naive assumption about the future in formulating their present stand.An extremely interesting part of the report is the following paragraph, which is set out verbatim:  “I remain convinced that for a solution to be sustainable, the two communities will have to be well-informed about the contours of a settlement as well as the consequences of not achieving it.  This requires an open and constructive discourse that transcends polarizing rhetoric and that focuses on the benefits for all Cypriots.  More efforts in this regard are essential and I encourage the sides, in particular the two leaders, to consider ways in which positive messaging and greater information about the process and the overall context can be further strengthened.”This is exactly the message that I have been transmitting in my articles for a long-time.  For some peculiar reason, which I fail to understand, the Greek Cypriot leader consistently ignores the need to do exactly what the Secretary-General is advocating.In fairness to him, I must say that I do not speak Turkish and, as a consequence, my ability to follow closely what is happening on the other side of the fence is, indeed, very limited, resulting in my inability to pass judgement on the Turkish Cypriot leader on this issue.What I also found to be a clear warning in the report was the following reference:  “The Council has been consistent over the decades in its support for a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation that reflects the political equality of the two communities on Cyprus.  To aid the parties in advancing toward this vision, on 30 June 2017, I offered a framework of six points to help clarify the differences on key issues.  I urge the parties to constructively consider these points.”  I read this as saying wake up this may be your last chance. Christos Panayiotides is a regular columnist for the Cyprus Mail, Sunday Mail and AlithiaYou May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

remain the only government employees missing out on its benefits Till date PU employees have not been able to avail the benefits of the scheme initiated under the Centre The CCL scheme introduced in the sixth pay commission (2008) states that all women employees of the central government are eligible to apply for leave for a maximum period of two years for taking care of their minor children After the University Grants Commission (UGC) came out with a regulation for the same in 2010 the agenda was introduced in the PU Syndicate and Senate which agreed to it but with a rider that it could be availed only for a period of one year instead of two However the Resident Audit Officer (RAO) of the university objected to the CCL Scheme stating that under Section 31(1) of the Panjab University Act 1947 the provisions of the CCL could be incorporated only after approval for the same was given by the Government of India Till date the file is pending with the MHRD and no formal approval has been received by the university After the objection the university sought legal opinion from the University Legal Retainer SC Sibal who had reiterated that approval of the Central Government was not needed considering the CCL had already been approved by the university’s governing bodies ie the Senate and Syndicate Sibal had stated that the CCL rules had been framed by the approval of the Syndicate and Senate hence there was no need to send the rules for approval from the Central Government In the meeting of Panjab University’s Board of Finance (BoF) on February 15 2016 the CCL has once again been included in the budget for the upcoming financial year This comes in as a ray of hope for the teachers but the ones who have already availed this leave after the Vice Chancellor’s approval are left in the lurch as they are yet to receive their salaries for the leave period The Senate while approving the Child Care Leave had also said that CCL would be applicable retrospectively to cover the pending cases of Child Care Leave where the administrative sanction has already been granted by the authorities The RAO who has refused to comment on the matter has still maintained that CCL rules cannot be implemented until a formal approval is obtained from the Central Government “I had applied for child care leave in July2015 and it was approved by the VC in September I was on

Among those who were affected was the family of Mangesh Kharate who lost their house life’s belongings and savings in the flood On Tuesday at Balgandharva Rangmandir Kharate launched a Marathi book penned by him — Kahani Panshet Purgrastanchi — which covers the problems the Panshet flood victims faced and the measures taken by the government to resolve them Though 43-year-old Kharate was born after the flood he grew up seeing the hardships his family faced due to the flood Speaking with other people whose families were affected by the flood he discovered the story of his family was the story of several others From 2001 to 2008 he started meeting the affected families and understanding their pending issues Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news His research made him realise which problem came under the domain of which government department He started writing to different government departments like the collector’s office tehsildar’s office and city survey office asking them to look into issues but receiving no response “I realised that because I was doing the correspondence as an individual for issues that concerned so many people the matter was being ignored by the government So in 2009 I founded an organisation named Panshet Purgrast Samiti” said Kharate The flood-affected people 3988 in all were rehabilitated by the government in eight areas in the city — Erandwane Parvati Darshan Dattawadi Shiv Darshan Nisenahat Bhavani Peth Janwadi and Health Camp “I visited each and every family spent hours and days with them to understand their pending issues related to property cards encroached lands construction and study the related papers All this took six to seven years Initially many officials got angry asking why I was digging up such an old issue But as they realised I had no vested interest and was trying to bring up genuine problems being faced by the flood-affected people they started supporting me and helped me meet senior officials of various government departments” said Kharate who is a graduate and runs a snacks centre in Erandwane His efforts finally bore results By 2010-11 issues which could be addressed on a local level were resolved with immediate orders For issues which needed to be addressed on a ministry level orders were issued to the collector city survey officer and tehsildar to prepare detailed reports and submit them at the Mantralaya “I follow ed up on these but it took time on the administrative level I was able to have a meet with the rehabilitation minister Patangrao Kadam and revenue minister Balasaheb Thorat They agreed to take a decision to resolve the three main issues which I had pointed out” said Kharate The three pending issues were: those who had not paid the ownership cost should be given one last chance to make the payment and in the property card the word ‘lease holder’ should be changed to holder for those who had already paid the ownership cost (677 out of 3988 had not paid); property transactions done by those who had paid the owenership cost should be considered legal; open space encroached upon by the flood-affected people around their house should be dealt with under the government resolution (GR) dated April 4 2002 It states slums that had come up on government land before 1995 can be treated as legal by taking charges “Our argument was that if the GR is applicable on slums then why not on others” said Kharate adding that the decision on the three issues was taken by the government on July 15 2013 “Though the problems were addressed with a decision in the favour of the flood victims issues related to property transactions and encroachment are yet to be implemented on an administrative level” he added For all the

a UN report said on Sunday The grim new landmark comes as authorities in Bangladesh were bracing for another possible surge in Rohingya arrivals with thousands from the Muslim minority believed to be stranded along the border waiting to cross File image of Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar Reuters Rohingya refugees have headed for Bangladesh in huge numbers after militant attacks on Myanmar security forces in Rakhine state sparked a major army crackdown on the community likened to ethnic cleansing by the UN Now the UN-led Inter-Sector Coordination Group (ISCG) which is directing the humanitarian effort has said an estimated 603000 refugees from Rakhine have crossed the border into Bangladesh since 25 August "Cross border movement of over 14000 newly arrived refugees has been verified in the past week" the ISCG report said Bangladesh border guards are also concerned the relaxation later today of a temporary ban on fishing in the Bay of Bengal could see a surge in people-smuggling along the coast as unscrupulous captains return to the seas Rohingya refugees already in Bangladesh have received videos from families across the border showing thousands of displaced Muslims massing near crossing points waiting for an opportunity to cross "We have seen some videos sent by people across the border There are many gathered there The number could be big" Border Guard Bangladesh commander Lieutenant Colonel SM Ariful Islam told AFP without giving an estimate Around 10000 refugees were left stranded in no man’s land near Anjumanpara village for three days last week after being prevented from crossing into Bangladesh They were finally permitted by authorities to enter on Thursday The influx has slowed since then with charities and officials reporting about 200 people crossing the Naf River dividing the two countries "(But) those that came told us thousands were still stranded on the other side of Naf" Jashim Uddin a volunteer for the International Organisation for Migration told AFP Another border guard told AFP an estimated 10-15000 refugees were heading to Anjumanpara but had been pushed back "We heard from their relatives that the Myanmar army has stopped them from heading to the border" said a Border Guard spokesman Iqbal Ahmed Refugees arriving on Sunday described violence in their villages in Rakhine and food shortages that had forced countless people to flee "We hardly had any food for the last 10-15 days They torched our home We did not have any choice but to leave" Yasmin who goes by one name told AFP at the coastal village of Shah Porir Dwip Authorities meanwhile are on high alert for fishermen seeking to ferry refugees to Bangladesh via the open sea as the temporary fishing ban expires later on Sunday "It is

with its president a crime-fighting US ally edging ahead of his rival a TV star whose supporters protested as his early lead in the weekend election evaporated Three days after polling stations closed in Honduras’ presidential election there was growing international concern and still a fifth of ballots left to count with no clear victor With around 8289 percent of ballots counted center-right President Juan Orlando Hernandez had 422 percent of the vote and challenger Salvador Nasralla was on 421 percent the election tribunal said with the president 3000 votes in the lead Hernandez’s blue-clad supporters celebrated chanting the president’s name at a base of his National Party in capital Tegucigalpa TV images showed The flamboyant Nasralla 64 who heads a coalition made up of leftist and centrist parties had initially taken a strong lead against the center-right Hernandez But after issuing the first batch of results on Monday the election tribunal went silent for about 36 hours which it said was because results had been slow to arrive It began issuing a fresh count sporadically from Tuesday afternoon Immediately Hernandez began closing the gap prompting Nasralla to say his victory was being stolen and urge his supporters to take to the streets in protest “We’ve already won the election” Nasralla said in an angry television interview late on Tuesday “I‘m not going to tolerate this” However both candidates committed to respect the final result once every disputed vote had been scrutinized issuing identical signed statements brokered by the Organization of American States on Wednesday afternoon International observers said the delays were damaging the credibility of authorities and threatened to undermine the legitimacy of the next president On Wednesday a US State Department spokeswoman urged Honduran authorities to review the election results without undue delay “It’s critical that Honduran election authorities be able to work in a free and transparent manner without interference We urge all candidates to respect the results” Heather Nauert said A supporter of Salvador Nasralla presidential candidate for the Opposition Alliance Against the Dictatorship carries her daughter as she stands in front of riot police while waiting for official presidential election results outside the warehouse of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal in Tegucigalpa Honduras November 29 2017 REUTERS/Jorge CabreraPre-election opinion polls indicated that Hernandez had been favourite to win the vote in the poor Central American nation which struggles with violence drug gangs and corruption and has one of the world’s highest murder rates Nasralla’s supporters accused the electoral tribunal of only releasing results from regions that support Hernandez About 8000 people heeded Nasralla’s call on Wednesday and marched through the capital Tegucigalpa “I‘m here so that justice and the will of the people is carried out because we elected Salvador Nasralla and Juan Orlando Hernandez wants to steal his victory” said 22-year-old David Ramirez a red political flag draped over his shoulder Slideshow (12 Images)Behind closed doors the parties of Hernandez and Nasralla were discussing immunity from prosecution for current officials and carving up positions in government two diplomats told Reuters on Tuesday As the vote count progressed at a glacial pace Hernandez’s National Party appears set to retain control of Congress WASHINGTON CONCERN With a booming game-show host voice and finely coiffed hair Nasralla is one of the country’s best known faces the host of programs that feature scantily clad women In one interview he boasted of his penis size and his sexual performance He is backed by leftist former President Manuel Zelaya who was ousted in a coup in 2009 after he proposed a referendum on his re-election The possible return of Zelaya risks fuelling concern in Washington The United States has longstanding military ties to Honduras but few ideological allies among the current crop of Central American presidents Hernandez has won US praise for helping tackle a flow of migrants to the north and extraditing drug cartel leaders to the United States He was credited with lowering the murder rate and boosting the economy but was also hurt by accusations of ties to illicit drug-related financing that he denies A foreign diplomat in Tegucigalpa who asked not to be named said the US would be concerned by a victory for the coalition led by “maverick” Nasralla But the diplomat added that a slim victory for Hernandez might be “the worst case scenario” as it would likely trigger protests and demands for a full vote count from an election tribunal with little credibility This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is
