Goway’s Africa Roadshow is backAccording to Anthony Lau, Executive Director of the HKTB, growth in visitor arrivals was largely driven by the Mainland market. As for international arrivals, he said long-haul markets performed well, growing 2.6%.“With the continued intense competition among travel destinations in the region, visitor arrivals from short-haul markets fluctuated, falling of 1.5%,” he said. “Looking ahead, the business environment for the tourism industry will face different challenges caused by the unstable global economy and exchange rates, which may affect tourism growth in the second half of the year.”Leveraging the upcoming opening of the Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou- Shenzhen-Hong Kong High Speed Rail and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, the HKTB will introduce related promotions through various channels to promote the two main infrastructure additions and travel experiences featuring Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.

Larnaca municipal secretary jailed for corruption Updated

first_imgLarnaca municipal secretary, Lefteris Empedocles, 57, was sentenced to five years in prison for corruption on Tuesday in connection with taking money to sort out building code infractions but eventually pocketing the cash.He was found guilty on March 1 of theft, obtaining money under false pretences, and money laundering, after extorting €35,000 from a businessman.In September 2015, he took €35,000 from businessman Theodosis Chrysostomou to allow certain code violations at his restaurant in the Mackenzie area in Larnaca, without, however, taking any action.Empedocles was arrested in 2016 after Chrysostomou reported the case to the police.Chrysostomou said he had initially met with Larnaca mayor at the time, Andreas Louroudjiatis, who suggested the businessman should pay €15,000 for this purpose.A few days later, Chrysostomou met Empedocles, who said that as the size of the establishment was quite large, the amount would actually be €35,000.The businessman agreed and paid up but the money was never officially received by the municipality and no procedures were initiated to rectify the matter.The problem at the restaurant was that at the time it was acquired, nine years before, it had a steel pergola, which covered the entire front of the building.The area was used as an extension of the restaurant and Chrysostomou used the pergola as a veranda for the first floor of the building.According to the existing legislation, all additions to the restaurant were illegal, while Chrysostomou believed the expansion of the restaurant was legal because he was paying an amount to the management committee of the building as rent for the use of public spaces.The court referred to the seriousness of the offence which decided the penalty.Offences by public officials are on the rise and it is the duty of the court to dissuade others by sending a message via the penalty.The ruling also took in consideration Empedocles’ clean criminal record, his age, his personal circumstances and the fact that the offence was an isolated incident.The defence counsel suggested the court should consider suspending the sentence but the court refused to consider this.“The court has not neglected the damage and loss the criminal act caused to the victim as well as the fact that the victim was not compensated,” the ruling said.Of particular importance is not just the amount the accused has stolen, but the fact that he exploited and misused his position as a municipal secretary, the court noted.“It is inconceivable that persons holding public positions and offices, but also key positions of power, act defiantly towards the institutions they represent and afflict them crucially by abusing their position.” You 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

up as the second biggest party in the state with about a rather respectable 20 seats All exit polls and pre-election assessments gave the Aam Aadmi Party a big thumbs up some even predicting it would form the government It is in the race for number three position at this point All of them felt the Congress would perform well but few believed it would be in a position to form the government It is comfortably placed now Captain Amarinder Singh (left) with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi PTI Clearly everyone underestimated the strength of the Akali Dal on the ground and overestimated the popularity of AAP The former was undoubtedly helming a very unpopular government and many felt it deserved punishment But few captured the fact it had a solid voter base and couldn’t go down too far even in the worst circumstance Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP was expected to mop up the anti-incumbency votes and notch up close to 60 seats Its popularity showed in its rallies particularly in the Malwa region which accounts for 69 of the state’s 117 Assembly seats The big development in this election however is the Congress’s victory It has been so rare in recent times that every victory for the party merits a thorough analysis It had a good campaigning strategy to begin with Its people connect programmes – Coffee with Captain and the Punjab da Captain – supported by efficient groundwork exuded purpose In comparison that of the AAP was more boisterous but less organised The Congress has the advantage of projecting a credible leader in the form Amarinder Singh That Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi left the state to Amarinder and didn’t even bother to campaign was in a way good for the party Wherever he takes the lead in campaigning the party loses – this has been an uncomfortable takeaway for the party from several elections The massive defeat of the SP-Congress alliance in Uttar Pradesh is a case in point Rahul is proving himself a liability as star campaigner for the Congress The victory in Punjab means the Congress’s gradual extinction from the political map of the country takes a halt For now the party can survive in the hope that with a good leader and fit organisation in states it can still manage electoral victories It is also a message to the party’s leadership that recovery has to begin from the states not through a top-down approach The AAP meanwhile would have to wait for its next electoral victory It might not be easy to come Punjab was its best bait for a political footprint beyond Delhi While there could be some credence in its argument that the Akali Dal desperate to keep it out of power asked its supporters to vote tactically to defeat AAP candidates the number of seats it has finally managed does not speak too well about it But it should take heart from the fact that it is the legitimate number two party in a big state It can bide its time to be number one However the number can change for both AAP and SAD as the

decisive leader would revive growth and repair the damage to investor sentiment from the previous regime’s policy paralysis In 2014 alone foreign institutional investors (FIIs) picked up $424 billion in Indian debt and equities In the current year too they pumped in another $152 billion till April-end But since the start of this month FIIs have been net sellers to the tune of $13 billion Meanwhile the Sensex has shed nearly a tenth of its lifetime high of 30000-plus points touched in early March and the rupee sank to a 20-month low of Rs 6405 to the dollar In good measure this reversal of fortunes has to do with structural factors Poor corporate earnings — more so in the latest March-ended quarter — and over-leveraged balance sheets rule out any immediate revival in private investment activity Pressure on rural incomes from falling crop prices and extreme weather along with weak export demand have only queered the pitch further On top of these global oil prices are on the boil once again with the average price of crude climbing by around $10 a barrel in the last one month Although the RBI’s foreign exchange reserve position is vastly better than it was during the last run on the rupee in August-September 2013 one knows from the past how rising oil prices can be a source of vulnerability for India’s balance of payments situation The pressure on the rupee now if anything queers the pitch for any interest rate cuts The RBI was in fact forced to raise short-term rates the last time around to counter attempts by currency speculators to “short” the rupee The current government has only made things worse in a sense through its confusing statements on retrospective applicability of minimum alternate tax on FIIs Understandably the latter haven’t taken too kindly to these after being assured of this government’s determination to end tax terrorism and bury the ghost of the retrospective amendment Their heavy selling serves as a warning to the government which was seemingly
