Balance of Payments deficit skyrockets

first_img– US$94M deficit attributed primarily to fuel price hikesGuyana’s overall Balance of Payments deficit has skyrocketed to US$94 million. Compared to US$8.8 million for the corresponding period last year, this represents a telling indicator of Guyana’s economic situation.Finance Minister Winston JordanThe recently released Bank of Guyana (BoG) Quarterly Report and Statistical Bulletin, from which the above figures are culled, attributes this Balance of Payments deficit to an expanding current account deficit and to higher fuel prices.“This was primarily due to an expansion of the Current Account deficit, despite a surplus on the Capital Account. The deficit on the Current Account resulted from a higher merchandise trade deficit due to higher imports, primarily fuel,” the report states.Balance of Payments information is statistical data on a country’s fiscal transactions, including imports and exports. To therefore record a deficit, Guyana would have had to spend more on imports, among other things, than it derived from exports.According to the report, Guyana’s overall Balance of Payments situation in the 2017 fiscal year showed a deficit of US$69.5 million. This is a hike when compared to US$53.3 million of the previous year. And a breakdown of the figures shows stunning disparities.On the one hand, the Current Account shows a deficit of US$287.4 million for the year 2017. But in the previous fiscal year, the report notes, this was just US$12.4 million. The report admits that this is because of a negative balance on the merchandise trade account.“The further weakening was due to the negative balance on the Merchandise Trade Account. Merchandise exports were slightly lower than projected, mainly on account of lower export earnings of gold and other exports in the last two months of the year.”When Finance Minister Winston Jordan presented the 2018 budget last year, he had announced that merchandise imports were estimated to grow by 9.6 per cent. This has been attributed to increased imports of mining machinery, chemicals, fuel and lubricants. According to the 2017 report, imports exceeded the Government’s projections.“Imports were slightly more than the US$1.59 billion projected at the time of the presentation of the 2018 budget. As a result, the Merchandise Trade deficit of US$196.2 million was considerably higher than the projected deficit of US$147.2 million”, the Report detailed.“Notwithstanding the deficit on the Services Account was lower than estimated, the improvement in the Services Account more than offset the weaker balances on both the Non-Factor Services and Unrequited Transfers accounts,” the report states.EconomyJordan was, on January 17, quoted as expressing hope that Guyana would see a rise in exports for 2018. He had noted that growth in the agriculture, fishing and forestry sectors would be driven by expansion in other sub-sectors except sugar.That was then. At the 48th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the Caribbean Development Bank, in Grenada in June, almost five months later, Minister Jordan had announced that the previous 3.8 per cent growth projection he announced at the last budget reading would be revised downwards.“In spite of both domestic and external shocks, Guyana has maintained its positive growth trajectory that has been evident for over a decade. In 2017, the economy recorded a growth rate of 2.1 per cent, reflecting improved performances in the forestry and rice sectors. On the other hand, contractions were witnessed in sugar and the construction and mining sectors”, he had announced.“The outlook for 2018 is very positive, notwithstanding further declines in the sugar industry. Real growth is projected to be 3.4 per cent, slightly below the budgeted 3.8 per cent; with increased output in rice, construction, manufacturing, and services sectors,” the Minister said in his speech, calling this a robust performance.Guyana’s last best growth rate was 5.2 per cent in 2013. World Bank records show Guyana’s growth rate in 2014 was 3.8 per cent; in 2015 it was 3.2 per cent; and in 2016 it was 3.3 per cent. For 2017, initial projections of 3.8 per cent were revised to 3.1.This figure then went to 2.9 per cent before the final figure of 2.1 per cent was announced. Jordan claimed that the poor performance was linked to the dismal figures recorded in sectors including sugar — a sector the Government itself radically downsized when it came to office.last_img read more

It’s all aboard for railroad clubs’ open house

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Bill Costley from the Belmont Shore Club and Bob Armstrong, a member of the Angel’s Gate Hi-Railers Club, explained the difference between their models. “The N scale is much smaller,” Costley said of their 1:160 models. “An N scale boxcar is about 4 inches.” Meanwhile, O uses a 1:24 scale. “Theirs are tiny little things,” Armstrong said of N scale models, joking, “We’re old guys and can’t see that stuff.” Both clubs have large layouts inside their respective buildings. Costley said that the N scale club takes up its two-story building, with a large layout upstairs, and a meeting room and small museum downstairs. It is the largest N scale layout in the country and has been at Angel’s Gate since 1971. By Rachel Jones STAFF WRITER San Pedro’s two model railroad clubs are hosting open houses this weekend at their Angel’s Gate Park building sites. The public will have a chance to view elaborate setups with both N scale and O scale models. “The layout is a model of the trains between L.A. Harbor and Bakersfield,” he said. Club members will be running the trains at the open house, and a swap meet will be held outside where anyone can bring train-related items to buy and sell. Costley said the open house is also a good time for people to get advice about buying or building model trains, especially with Christmas coming up. The Hi-Railers Club started 11years ago, and members spent the first five years refurbishing the building they use. “It was in pretty bad shape,” Armstrong said. “Then we started building the layout, and we’re still in the process of building it. They say a layout is never completed.” Armstrong said they now have about 1,500 feet of track, with two lines that can run about eight freight or passenger trains. The groups, which each have about 30 people, have male and female members of all ages. “It’s a fun group. We have a really good cross-section of the people that live around here, and membership is open to anybody that has interest,” said Costley, who has been a Belmont Shore member for five years. He said that the club holds a business meeting once a month, but members mostly work on building the layout on their Tuesday night gatherings. “There’s no stress,” he said. “You do what you like and what you feel comfortable with.” Hi-Railers members also are free to work on whatever they’re interested in when the club meets on Wednesday nights. “I enjoy wiring and scenery building,” “Other people enjoy scenery building and just cleaning track.” Like Belmont Shore members, they also offer advice and help members of the public who bring in old model trains. Membership is open to anyone who’s interested. The Hi-Railers also are working on a few community outreach programs. “We’re trying to develop railroad safety seminars for children, and we’re also thinking of bringing in vets and showing them how to build scenery,” Armstrong said.

There was the thing the other day where he said that ‘on the way out of the office make sure you look at the letters up there and it says manager. I am the manager and I am in charge.”“I feel if he is not going to make him [Pogba] captain, or vice-captain, I don’t think he should be playing either, at the moment, I think he has got to set out his stall and say, ‘you sort your own mind out that you are playing underneath me and then you can come and play in my team again.’ Until he does that he shouldn’t be playing.” How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings SORRY Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?

FIANNA FAIL CALLS FOR EXTENSION TO DEADLINE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS SUPPORTS

first_imgFianna Fáil Spokesperson on Education Charlie McConalogue has called for an extension to the deadline for applications for special needs supports in schools.The Inishowen TD described the current deadline as ‘unfair and unrealistic’.“As it stands, schools have only until Friday week to apply for resource hours and Special Needs Assistants they will need for the year. Any child with disabilities that has not been assessed in time will have to go the full school year without the support they need. “It is simply unreasonable to expect that the needs of all children in the school system can be fully and correctly assessed within three weeks of the new school year, particularly given the significant increase in the school going population this year.“I believe it does not give teachers anywhere near enough time to evaluate all children in their class, especially those who are new to the school,” said Deputy McConalogue.He added this deadline puts enormous pressure on teachers and parents.“In many cases, a child’s special needs will not become apparent for a few weeks after they and their class have settled into the new school year. But by that time, it will be too late to apply for additional supports and that child will have to wait a full year before an application can be made. Not only will this have potentially serious consequences for their development, it could affect the entire classroom environment. “My concern is that such a strict deadline is another cynical attempt to cut costs by reducing the number of applications for SNAs and resource hours. Minister Quinn has already targeted these supports and despite being forced into a u-turn on his cuts to resource hours, additional SNA reductions have kicked in this year.“I am urging the Minister to do the right thing and extend the deadline for at least another two weeks give schools a chance to ensure that all children who need support get it this year.”FIANNA FAIL CALLS FOR EXTENSION TO DEADLINE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS SUPPORTS was last modified: September 9th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie McConalogueSpecial needslast_img read more
