The Kenyan government says it will open the border with Somalia to boost trade and allow the flow of people between the two countries. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta also pledged to help Somalia in the fight against al-Shabab militants and support and train government workers. His remarks followed a meeting he had in Nairobi with his Somali counterpart, Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed. After a closed door meeting that lasted more than three hours, the two heads of state addressed the media in a display of friendship. President Kenyatta discussed the border issue. "We agreed to take the following actions within the shortest possible time, open two border posts, in Dobley-Liboi and Mandera-Bula Hawa, and to facilitate the movement of people, goods and services," he said. The borders have remained closed for the last two-and-a-half decades since Somalia descended into conflict; however, people living along the borders and refugees have found a way to get into Kenya.

The program gets foodfresh or frozen — to people who need it, quickly and safely. “The idea is that we will be able to do it quickly while the food is still fresh,” Watts added . “Where frozen food is required, it will maintain the cold chain of being frozen.” “It really allows them to organize the donations in a much better way,” says Dominique Anglade , Quebec’s minister of economic development, innovation, and export trade. Anglade calls the program a win-win, while Recyc-Quebec has offered to subsidize the program with $395,200. Watts believes the program will be very useful for smaller food banks in Quebec, and hopes it will continue to receive funding from the Quebec government because of its positive economic impact. “We managed to take people and prevent them from falling into poverty, prevent them from falling into homelessness and, in turn, we get them to be productive citizens,” he said .

ACCORDING to a document crafted by the Trump administration, a model trade agreement has 24 elements. Second on the list is “trade-deficit reduction”, giving a hint as to why Mr Trump wants to review America’s existing agreements. In January Sean Spicer, his press secretary, said the administration would “re-examine all of the current trade deals.” A presidential order to do just that is reported to be in the offing. America boasts 14 bilateral and regional free-trade agreements (FTAs). Mr Trump seems to blame these agreements for America’s large trade deficit. Most economists disagree, seeing it as reflecting macroeconomic imbalances. The FTAs are in any case with countries representing just two-fifths of America’s two-way trade in goods, and less than 10% of its goods-trade deficit (see chart). Most (77%) of America’s deficit stems from trade with China, the European Union and Japan.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) plans to announce a new date of an Executive Board meeting on the completion of the third revision of the EFF program for Ukraine in the near future, IMF spokesperson Gerry Rice has said. The IMF Executive Board meeting on Ukraine has been postponed to allow the staff time to assess the implications of various recent developments for the program. We expect to announce a new date soon, he said during a traditional briefing in Washington. He did not specify what events were being discussed. As I have said I don't have a lot for you beyond what I have said. I don't have details of the developments of our staff, he said, asked whether there is a link between the postponement of the meeting date and the trade blockade of certain regions of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The post IMF to announce new date of meeting on Ukraine in near future appeared first on KyivPost .

Defiant British lawmakers returned to parliament Thursday but outside, the forensic work and eerie absence of people and traffic at one of London's most popular tourist spots was a poignant reminder of the previous day's terror. MPs and peers, aides, staff and journalists returned to work a day after a police officer was killed and his assailant shot dead on the cobbled yard of the Palace of Westminster in an attack claimed by the Islamic State group. The House of Commons chamber was packed for the minute's silence in tribute to the victims, before MPs held a planned session on international trade, insisting it was "business as usual". But just outside, forensic officers worked in a blue tent at the scene of the attack, before later combing the ground in a fingertip search for evidence. At a location normally characterised by noisy traffic and hoards of tourists coming to see the world-famous building, the streets were silent.

This is the annual property industry jamboree where the mechanics of modern city-making are laid bare. Here, inside a hulking lump of geometric concrete affectionally known as the bunker, you find the whole food chain: developers, agents, investors, lawyers, politicians and everyone else. Even architects. Each pitching to the other, each selling up the chain. MIPIM is a place where it can be hard to distinguish extravagant buffets from models of vibrant new urban quarters, where vases seem interchangeable with skyscrapers, where the rhetorics of the property industry are spread slickly over the surface. And though, like any trade show, everything here is all surface, MIPIM's shallow surface affords a deep view of an industry that usually remains heavily veiled. Here, banners, models, fly-throughs, free gifts, Oculus Rift headsets, tote bags, business cards, dinners, yachts, brochures and panel discussions form the modern machinery of city-making.

The shares, up almost 190% in the past year on the back of some stellar results from Hot Maden, succumbed to a bout of mild profit-taking to trade at 55p each. Undemanding share price “With the price 30% off its January high the valuation looks very undemanding at this level,” said City broker Northland Capital. It pointed out that Mariana, with US$4.75mln in the bank, has a “significant cash balance” that is expected to be bolstered by continuing funds from the exercise of warrants. In January the company revealed the findings of a preliminary economic assessment of Hot Maden, which estimated its net present value to be US$1.37bn. The projected cash flows from a mine are so strong the payback on the investment would be just over two years. Upfront costs were estimated at US$169mln, which rises to US$261mln over the mine’s life.
