Les talents mondiaux de l’industrie portuaire et du transport ...

SHENZHEN, Chine, 6 juillet 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Le 5 juillet 2018, le troisième programme de formation « C Blue » de China Merchants a tenu sa cérémonie de clôture au China Merchants Port Plaza de Shenzhen. 25 participants de 13 pays répartis sur quatre continents le long de l’initiative « Une ceinture, une route » ont été diplômés du programme.

C Blue, a journey to cultural exchanges, mutual understanding, friendship and hope

Ont assisté à la cérémonie la secrétaire générale adjointe de la China Merchants Charitable Foundation (« CMCF »), Mme Huang Yi ; le président de l’Autorité portuaire du Sri Lanka, le Dr Parakrama Dissanayake ; le doyen associé du Shanghai Advanced Institute of International Shipping de l’Université maritime de Shanghai (« SMU »), M. Yu Siqin, ainsi que le directeur général adjoint de China Merchants Port Holdings Company Ltd. (« CMPort »), M. Yan Gang.

Mme Huang a adressé ses félicitations à tous les stagiaires. Elle estime que C Blue a remporté un plus grand succès grâce aux efforts conjoints de toutes les parties. Il y a plus de cent ans, China Merchants finançait des enfants sous la dynastie Qing pour qu’ils aillent aux États-Unis à la recherche d’un rajeunissement pour la Chine. Aujourd’hui, le groupe invite les talents de différents pays par le biais du programme C Blue à partager l’expérience et les réalisations de la Chine en matière de développement.

Le Dr. Dissanayake a considéré C Blue comme une innovation marquante où les jeunes peuvent cultiver des amitiés et une confiance mutuelle qui ouvrent la voie à la collaboration. Il a également apprécié la vision de C Blue selon laquelle les stagiaires contribueraient au développement de l’initiative « Une ceinture, une route » à l’avenir grâce à une meilleure compréhension de la culture et de l’expérience de développement de la Chine.

M. Yu a déclaré que la SMU utiliserait pleinement son corps professoral et ses avantages régionaux pour promouvoir C Blue. Il a estimé que le projet est une méthode importante pour relier les rêves de développement socio-économique de différents pays.

Au nom des stagiaires de C Blue, M. Kaan Anul de Turquie a exprimé sa sincère gratitude à tous et a partagé sa compréhension de la signification de C Blue : le « C » comme l’initiale de « Culture Exchange », « Communicate Internationally » et « Collaboration » véhicule les valeurs des mots cités précédemment.

M. Yan a déclaré que C Blue a été détenu avec succès trois fois et est devenu une carte de visite pour CMPort. Le programme a construit une plate-forme pour les talents de différents pays et est un portrait vivant de CMPort qui ose entreprendre des missions historiques et réagit activement à l’initiative « Une ceinture, une route ».

Global Talents in Port and Shipping Industry Invited to 2018 China Merchants C Blue Training Program’s Summer Edition

Lancé à Shanghai le 12 juin, le programme de formation d’été 2018 « C Blue » de China Merchants est financé par la fondation CMCF, organisé conjointement par le CMPort et l’Université maritime de Shanghai.

Le succès de C Blue a nettement contribué à la notoriété du concept « Une ceinture, une route ».

Traditional land not affected by Section 25 amendment

A meeting of a Ministerial Task Team and National House of Traditional Leaders has resolved that the traditional land would not be affected by the proposed amendment of Section 25 of the Constitution.

The Ministerial Task Team was appointed by the Cabinet two weeks ago to engage the leadership of the National House of Traditional Leaders and leaders of provincial houses on their concerns on land expropriation.

Parliament is currently conducting public consultations on the proposed amendment of Section 25 of the Constitution.

Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister and task team convener, Dr Zweli Mkhize, said this process did not include land under traditional leaders.

A wrong impression has been created that the discussion on land expropriation includes land in the hands of traditional leaders. Government wishes to clarify categorically that when government talks about land expropriation, we are referring to the 87 percent of the land not the 13 percent that is under the control of traditional leaders and black people. We wish to emphasise that the 13 percent of the land is not under any dispute, said Minister Mkhize.

Minister Mkhize also emphasized that President Cyril Ramaphosa had hosted a breakfast of the BRICS Business Council on Friday morning and at its conclusion, he stated without ambiguity and clarified the misunderstanding on land targeted for expropriation.

Government has noted the serious concerns raised by traditional leaders with respect to the report of the High Level Panel appointed by Parliament on the Assessment of Key Legislation and the Acceleration of Fundamental Change, led by Former President Kgalema Motlanthe.

Government would like to emphasise that the views expressed in that report are not those of government or the governing party but those of the Panel, said Minister Mkhize.

The task team will comprise Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Senzeni Zokwana, Rural Development and Land Reform Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane and Communications Minister Nomvula Mokonyane.

The task team is part of a bigger Inter-Ministerial Committee on Land Reform which will be led by Deputy President David Mabuza to coordinate and implement measures to accelerate the redistribution of land, the extension of security of tenure, the provision of agricultural support and the redress of spatial inequality within a broad and comprehensive land redistribution and agricultural development programme.

Mkhize said the task team and the traditional leaders had concurred on the proposal for the expropriation of land without compensation.

The meeting, Mkhize said, had focused on land reform.

It is also important for us to indicate that while that process is going in parliament, we needed to see confer with the traditional leaders to see what support we can offer as they might need to make their own representations to the parliamentary process where at the moment a number of consultative processes are going on in the various communities, he said.

He added that all South Africans, including traditional leaders, were expected to review Section 25.

The issue of land reform and the return of land is an important issue and as always been part of issues traditional leaders have raised. Further to that traditional leaders have raised the question of the security of tenure in the area under traditional leadership. They have raised a proposal that government should be issuing title deeds through the traditional leadership, he said.

Government, the Minister said, was also considering systems that would ensure that investments were possible and banks accept the nature of the land tenure that would be ultimately be agreed upon.

We have agreed among ourselves that we will work with the traditional leadership institution to refine the research that is needed so that the correct form of land tenure is achieved for all the areas that have a traditional leadership.

We have agreed that we would table these issues to Cabinet. We don’t foresee that the two processes should be delayed by the fact that there is a parliamentary process on the other side whereas this other process is something that needs to be worked on with the departments and government to refine it.

We have agreed that there was a need for a land summit to be convened so that a number of proposals from it can be tabled. We have agreed that there will be a team that will work between the HTL and the various departments to take this matter forward, the Minister said.

Mozambique on the hunt for first ever COSAFA U17 title

Mozambique has been to the finals of the COSAFA Under-17 Championship but will be seeking their first ever trophy in this age-group in Mauritius this year.

The Young Mambas came close in 1994 when they lost 2-1 to South Africa in the decider and will be hopeful of going one better in 2018 as they tap into the rich potential that exists within the country.

The side returned to the regional finals in 2017 having skipped the year before and showed themselves to be competitive but could not make it out of the group stages as they narrowly missed the knockout rounds.

They started with a 3-1 loss to South Africa, but then completed wins over Madagascar (2-0) and eventual winners Zambia (1-0), ending the pool stage on six points along with the South Africans and Zambians.

But they missed out on the semifinals with an inferior head-to-head record against the other two nations.

It showed, particularly in their win over Zambia, that they can be a real power in this age-group and with the carrot of a place in the African Under-17 Championships being dangled, they could be a team to watch.

Mozambique has twice before reached the continental finals, though the last appearance was 17 years ago in Seychelles. They lost all three games there in a tough pool that also included Nigeria, Guinea and Ethiopia.

Their other appearance was in the first championships played in 1995 in Mali where they beat the hosts 2-1, but defeats to Tunisia and Ghana meant they missed out on the semifinals on goal-difference.

The Class of 2018 will be coached by Luis Victor Fumo.
