A round table on foreign labor issues will be held in Split

first_imgThe round table will be attended by companies representing the sector in tourism and trade, which will present to us first hand the real situation in the industry. Representatives of the institutions of the Croatian Employment Service of the Split Regional Office, the Ministry of the Interior of the Split Police Department, the Croatian Pension Insurance Institute, Split Branch Office and representatives of employment agencies from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina will also be present. The primary goal of this round table is to define the broader context of the issue, while participating in a constructive discussion and finding possible solutions through the synergy of the real sector and institutions. Preparations for the new season are in full swing, and the workforce continues to be a problem plaguing many business people. Although labor import license quotas have increased by more than 100 percent this year, to 65.100, and the trade sector is listed for the first time in the distribution of licenses, the search for seasonal workers remains problematic and the number of tourist arrivals and overnight stays is tall. The tourism sector accounts for more than 23 percent of Split-Dalmatia County’s GDP, and the trade sector accounts for more than 18.200 jobs. The Croatian Chamber of Commerce is organizing a round table on “Foreign workforce – challenges and solutions for a successful tourist season.” The round table will be held on February 26 at 11 am in the Croatian Chamber of Commerce – Split County Chamber, and you can send applications via the form HERE.last_img read more

Lorgat says runner’s rule was misused

first_imgInternational Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive Haroon Lorgat on Thursday defended the scrapping of runners saying the provision was being misused by the batsmen.ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat.The ICC, during its annual conference in Hong Kong on Tuesday, abolished the provision of having runners besides introducing new rules to spruce up the sport.Lorgat said that the more than a century old runner rule was put to end as it was not used by batsmen in the “right spirit”. It has been considered by the cricket committee… and there has been a strong feeling that runners were used not in the right spirit,” Lorgat said.It is quite a difficult one for umpires to determine whether there has been a real injury to batsmen or whether it was a tactical use of runners.” The debate on the need for runners came to the fore in the 2009 Champions Trophy when England captain Andrew Strauss turned down his South African counterpart Graeme Smith’s request for a runner while he was battling cramps.The ICC made the decision keeping in mind cases like these and came to a conclusion that runners can’t be taken for cramps as they are a result of fatigue and not an injury.”If a bowler gets injured you can’t continue bowling for the rest of the day and the feeling was that it would be better to not allow the use of runners because there has been abuse in the past,” said Lorgat.The move by the apex body however drew flak from Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar, who demanded that bowlers should also be stopped from drinking water at the boundary line.advertisement- With inputs from agencieslast_img read more
