North Korean authorities promote China relations to residents, but urge caution…

first_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) NewsEconomy North Korea’s Chairman Kim Jong Un traveled to Dalian, China, to meet President Xi Jinping for two days from May 7, with the event covered by North Korea’s state media on May 9.

Contact us at [email protected] Facebook Twitter By Daily NK – 2018.05.21 9:56pm News In lectures delivered to ordinary residents, North Korea’s authorities have been expressing the need to strike a conciliatory approach with China. However, in lectures to party cadres, the authorities are ordering officials to ramp up caution in their dealings with the Chinese. “At recent Ministry of State Security lectures, the message has been: ‘In the current environment concerning relations with China (on the surface), it should be harmonious, but it’s necessary to increase vigilance at the same time.’ This is an indicator that China is an even more dangerous country than even South Joson [South Korea] or the US,” a North Hamgyong Province-based source told Daily NK on May 17.     “It was continually mentioned that ‘[t]he [current state of the ] North Korea-China border is like a divorce from a previous life.’ They were advised to immediately report even the sound of a pin dropping in the border region to the Central Party leadership,” the source continued. On the other hand, the content of lectures delivered to North Korean residents has been conspicuously different in nature. Rather than caution, the lectures emphasize cooperation and reconciliation. “In lectures delivered since the middle of last month, the residents have been told to, ‘cease all negative talk about China.’ The lecturers informed residents that, ‘The leader (Kim Jong Un) visited China and achieved a good result, leading to the improvement of all relations,’” a South Pyongan Province-based source said. “When China actually started enforcing the sanctions, we thought it was bad, but that wasn’t the case,” she added, describing the content of the lecture. “We were told to stop using certain phrases like ‘Chinese Jerks,’ etc., and we were told that, ‘When it comes down to it, China is our country’s friend.’” In parallel, crackdowns against viewing Chinese movies appear to have eased. “Chinese movies with Joson (North Korean) subtitles are now being permitted. In general, the atmosphere is improving,” she said. The difference in tone in the messages delivered to residents and officials at public organizations possibly hints at the regime’s concerns over dependence on China. While cooperation is necessary for economic development, over-reliance is seen as undesirable. Chairman Kim Jong Un’s two sudden trips to China reveal that North Korea may expect to lean on Chinese strength, capital, and technology for its economic growth, but likely remains concerned over the degree of influence that China has over it. “North Korea is emphasizing ‘self-sufficiency,’ which includes the perspective that over-reliance on foreign countries is not good. On the road ahead, as the North approaches its planned summit with the US, it will attempt to carefully use China for economic development, but will remain concerned about things such as the introduction of outside information,” the North Hamgyong Province source concluded.

Housing slightly less affordable across Canada: RBC

Tougher stress tests won’t chill housing market: Scotia Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Housing in Canada became slightly less affordable in the second quarter of 2012, according to the latest Housing Trends and Affordability Report released by RBC Economics Research. “Market conditions remained fairly balanced across the country in the second quarter, laying the groundwork for further price increases, which in turn contributed to a decrease in affordability,” said Craig Wright, senior vice president and chief economist at RBC. “Going forward, we anticipate that the latest mortgage insurance rule changes and prospects for further erosion in affordability will restrain homebuyer demand in Canada.” Exceptionally low interest rates have been the most important factor in keeping affordability from reaching dangerous levels in recent years, RBC notes. Affordability-related pressures, therefore, could well intensify next year, should interest rates begin to rise. “Assuming the European crisis remains contained and fiscal challenges in the U.S. are addressed, we expect the Bank of Canada to start normalizing interest rates early next year. This could cause further deterioration in affordability,” explained Wright. “We think that the central bank will proceed gradually with rate increases and that household income will continue to grow. Both of these factors should lessen the negative impact on the housing market.” The RBC housing affordability measure captures the proportion of pre-tax household income that would be needed to service the costs of owning a specified category of home at going market values. During the second quarter of 2012, measures at the national level edged higher for detached bungalows and two-storey homes by 0.2 and 0.6 percentage points to 43.4% and 49.4%, respectively (an increase in the measure represents deterioration in affordability). The measure for condominium apartments was unchanged at 28.8%. Over the past two quarters, erosion in the single family home categories pushed the level of these measures further above their long-term averages in Canada. However, national figures are somewhat exaggerated by extremely poor affordability in the Vancouver area. “The degree to which the most recent levels exceed historical averages is smaller if Vancouver is excluded from the calculations, especially in the case of detached bungalows, while the measure for two-storey homes is somewhat elevated in comparison to the long-run average,” added Wright. “This likely signifies that some affordability-related stress is building in this category across Canada. On the other hand, any such stress appears to be minimal at most for condominium apartments.” Across Canada, housing affordability varies significantly. Of the largest cities, Vancouver is by far the least affordable place to own a home, with a measure of 91%, up 2.2 percentage points from the previous quarter. Other major cities recorded lower scores, including: Toronto, with 54.5% (up 0.9 percentage points); Ottawa, with 41.9% (unchanged); Montreal, with 40.4% (down 1.0 percentage points); Calgary, with 36.7% (unchanged); and Edmonton, with 32.4% (down 0.1 percentage points).

New Zealand regulator proposes exemption to law to allow robo-advisors

first_img IIROC webcast examines automated advice and suitability Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Robo-advice growing slowly in Europe Related news James Langton Specifically, the FMA issued a consultation paper on the matter on Wednesday, proposing an exemption that would allow firms to provide personalized financial advice generated by algorithms. The FMA says that current securities laws, which were passed in 2008, did not contemplate the advent of digital advice. Notably, the laws require that only a “natural person” can give advice. The proposed exemption would limit robo-advisors to providing financial advice and investment planning services; it would not apply to discretionary investment management services and it would limit robo-advisors to a list of eligible products considered easy to exit. The proposals also establish disclosure and capacity requirements; they also impose safeguards, including processes to filter out clients that are not suited to receive robo-advice. “We are seeking to ensure we maintain the standards of consumer protection provided by the legislation while encouraging innovation that can help more people get help with investment decisions,” says Liam Mason, the FMA’s director of regulation. “Robo-advice offers a way to address the low numbers of consumers currently receiving personalized financial advice.” The proposed exemption represents an interim measure designed to address the provision of robo-advice before more concrete legislative changes can be adopted.

Businesses Urged to put Disaster Preparedness Plans in Place

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Office of the Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) is urging businesses to have comprehensive emergency plans in place in the event of disasters.According to Nadine Newsome, Director of Information and Training at ODPEM, it was imperative that businesses examine every possible hazard and potential disaster and plan for it. “This is whether it is a civil unrest or accidents or disasters. Each can pose a significant threat to your business, therefore you must have some kind of plan in place to respond to all emergencies,” she warned.Ms. Newsome told JIS News that although some businesses had made the effort to put in place general disaster preparedness and business recovery plans, the majority reviewed by ODPEM, were lacking in detail.“Most plans that we have critiqued have been very general, where it should be very specific. It must give particular reference and input to positions, in terms of who will carry out particular functions in the event of a disaster,” she pointed out.Every step should be outlined and the role of selected persons in the organisation clearly defined in the plan, so that in the wake of an emergency, the plan can be properly implemented.These plans should include: appointing safety wardens for each floor of a building; procedures to govern emergency exits and lighting for emergency routes; and strategies for getting staff and clients, who may be disabled, out of the building.“I believe that when designing a plan, it should be a coordinated approach by businesses, involving all staff,” she said. Once the plan has been designed, it can be forwarded to ODPEM, which will in turn, make recommendations and return it.“I do think businesses in general need to take this concept or idea of planning for disaster planning more seriously. We still have such a far way to go when it comes to this,” Ms. Newsome acknowledged.With reports of an active hurricane season come June, it does behove businesses to get started.

New Zealand reaches 10,000 registered social workers milestone

first_imgNew Zealand reaches 10,000 registered social workers milestone “There are now more than 10,000 registered social workers in New Zealand, an increase of over 3,600 social workers over the last four years, Minister for Social Development and Employment Carmel Sepuloni announced today.“This is a significant milestone worth celebrating today on World Social Work Day,” Carmel Sepuloni said.“In 2017, there were 6,631 social workers on the register. That increased to 7,812 in 2018/19 and to 8,642 last year. The jump to nearly 10,300 registered social workers this year means we have a strong and resilient workforce where people can be confident in the care, advice and support they receive from social workers.“Our social workers are at the frontline and beyond, providing assistance to those most in need. They play a vital role in improving the wellbeing of tamariki, communities and whānau across the motu.“It has been an extraordinarily challenging 12 months for New Zealanders, as we deal with the impacts of COVID-19, and one where the resilience, ongoing mahi and compassion shown by our social workers has been needed more than ever.“Today’s milestone follows the introduction on February 27 of mandatory registration for social workers. This move was long sought by the sector, and offers reassurance to the public that all social workers must adhere to a Code of Conduct and understand their professional obligations.”“Today I want to celebrate all our social workers, who continue to be a source of tremendous pride for the profession, and our country.

$10 Million Resource Centre Opens in Eastern Hanover

first_imgResidents of Mt. Hannah and surrounding districts in eastern Hanover are to benefit from the opening of a resource centre valued at approximately $10 million in their area.The Mt. Hannah Resource Centre, established by the Mt. Hannah Primary School Past Students Association in collaboration with the Organization of International Development (OID), was officially opened on August 5, the eve of Jamaica’s 51st anniversary of Independence.The facility includes a community library, internet café, bathrooms and multi-purpose hall; and will benefit hundreds of students and adults from across the districts of Donalva, Mt. Hannah, Maryland and adjoining communities.Member of Parliament, Dr. D.K. Duncan, congratulated the Mt. Hannah Past Students Association and the wider community for “persevering together and achieving great things for the community.”He presented the group with a gift of $100,000 that will go towards further construction work on the resource centre.“In consultation with Councillor Lloyd Hill, we have decided that this is an appropriate venture for us to make even a small contribution of $100,000 to the project out of the Constituency Development Fund (CDF).  This is in appreciation for what you have together achieved for the benefit of many of this immediate community and surrounding areas,” Dr. Duncan said.Delivering the main address at the opening ceremony, Representative of the Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) Foundation, Virginia Turner, said the activities at the Mt. Hannah Resource Centre are going to be successful because the entire community has “embraced and bought into the dream.”“We at JN Foundation firmly believe if you give persons the resources and you get them to buy in, that they are responsible for the development of their communities and if they are given the opportunities and the resources, then they can make changes in their societies,” Ms Turner noted.She pointed out that unless the young people and seniors alike are engaged in these tough economic times to get themselves trained and to become self reliant, the country will be in trouble.“I am therefore encouraging all citizens across this and adjoining communities to make the best use of the many opportunities that will be emerging from this resource centre. I am also encouraging the formation of senior clubs for both females and males, in order to bring out their creative and resourceful abilities.” she said.Ms.Turner noted that the centre has to make money to be sustainable. “If the centre is not sustainable after a while nothing will go on here, so be resourceful and the centre will benefit entire communities of the parish,” Ms.Turner said.She announced that the JN Foundation would be dedicating resources to working with the centre in the extensive structuring of programmes and activities in ensuring that members benefit as they prepare for the future.
