Regional Integration

...Regional Integration Ashleigh Addis MGT/448 April 10, 2013 Christy Vasconcellos Introduction Regional integration is achieved when two or more nation states enter into a regional agreement usually for economic or political purposes. The primary objective for regional integration is to help nations to overcome any trading hurdles or political problems that could potentially arise. These problems could be linked to the countries government, economy, and geographic layout. There are many different countries that have made some type of an agreement with another country. In North America, regional integration among America, Canada, and Mexico has had both advantages and disadvantages. The NAFTA, which was first established in 1992 but did not become officially until 94, has become an important part of all three countries. Although all three countries have benefited from the NAFTA, this paper will cover the advantages and disadvantages it has had on Mexico. Advantages of the NAFTA It is safe to say that for the most part the NAFTA has been primarily a blessing for Mexico. A huge advantage for Mexico is the boost it has had on them economically. NAFTA decreased tariffs; essentially meaning that the exports and imports from Mexico increased due to the lower taxes. The NAFTA created many jobs for the people of Mexico. With the increase of jobs, came an increase in wages. The NAFTA is the largest free trade and creates more than $17 trillion in goods and services produced by...

Letter to Councillor: English Task

...trips by both car and public transport for Greater Western Sydney residents are on a daily basis longer than for the rest of Sydney. With a constant foot on the brake, commuters are finding it hard to keep moving . In recent findings by the Department of transport, the average commuting time of residents within this region has crawled to an intolerable 34 minutes one way only to be further delayed in ravaging weather conditions. With the transport system unravelling everywhere, projections on other vital fronts are further cause for pessimism. Not surprisingly, public transport's decline is counterbalanced by growth in car ownership and increased saturation of traffic volumes on the city's packed roads. This limited choice for intra- regional travel and the lack of key public transport linkages to employment opportunities, facilities and services exacerbates the existing traffic dilemma. The State Government had hoped its Metropolitan Strategy would guide the city's growth. Instead, the strategy has become a lightning rod for all sorts of dissidents all yearning for a new direction. Little attention has been given to how the intended direction of these reforms – especially the pursuit of efficiency, effectiveness and community engagement through strategic and corporate planning – interacts with frameworks for political and community governance. The current academic, and to some extent, political focus in Australia appears to be moving away from how to accommodate more......

Do Regional Organizations Have a Role to Play in International Relations?

...CA2 | Do Regional Organizations Have a Role to Play in International Relations? | Krystal Tan Yi Zhen 1227831 DIB/FT/2A/02 | What is Regional Organizations? Regional organizations incorporate international membership of states based on boundaries characteristic to a unique geography, such as continents, or geopolitics, such as economic blocks. Some regional organizations are African Union (AU) and European Union (EU). The UN recognises regional organizations as stakeholders in international relations and has granted some of them observer status at the UN General Assembly and permanent representation in New York. The right to speak at the United Nations General Assembly meetings, participation in procedural votes, and to sponsor and sign resolutions means that regional organisations can influence relationships between countries. The three main roles of regional organizations that justify their existence are Peacekeeping and Security, Combating Terrorism, and Disaster Risk Reduction Peacekeeping and Security Regional organizations have an increasing responsibility to maintain a peaceful and stable environment among countries, accelerate growth and development in their member countries through joint endeavours, and maintain beneficial cooperation with existing international and regional organisations. The increasing need of strengthening the role of regional organizations in maintaining international peace and security demonstrates the importance of regional......

Passion Killing in Namibia

...Passion killing in Namibia has reached alarming heights rates and is constantly making headlines among the media. It has gotten so bad that it caused the President of the Republic of Namibia to speak up against these 'barbaric acts of violence against women by some men in our society'. I will look at some of the causes and problems and try to find solutions to these 'passion killing.' According to clinical psychologist Dr. S Whittaker (2013) the perpetrators "grew up witnessing an abusive parental relationship and was abused as a child." Children who saw or were abused constantly tend to grow up and do the same to people, especially those close to them. This abuse if unattended to, can get out of hand and lead to someone being killed. Reverend Dr. N Nakamela believes one of the leading causes of 'passion killing' are a "lack of religious guidance." I agree with his statement, because religion is meant to keep us grounded and act righteous and with guidance from a religious point of view, I believe we would not be having such problems. I personally believe that women can also be cause to the problem. Some women will be with a man and promise to marry him, only for them to break up with him after giving the man false hope of love and the status of their relationship. Such crimes cause economic problems in the country, tourists will not want to come visit our country when they know their lives will be in danger. Investor will leave or not come to Namibia to invest in our......

The Himba People of Namibia

...The Himba People of Namibia The Himba are an indigenous tribe of around 50,000 people, living in Northern Namibia. Namibia is located in Southern Africa. It borders Angola, Botswana, and Zambia. The country is relatively politically stable, and is for the most part, economically sound. A large portion of the population is indigenous, including the Himba. The Himba are a mostly semi-nomadic people. They are closely related to the Herero, an ethnic group located in the Bantu region of Africa. They speak Otijihimba, which is very comparable to the language of the Herero. The Himba, similar to the Afar people of Ethiopia and many other African tribes, are mostly revolved around their cattle. They breed cows and goats for food and milk. The responsibility of milking the cattle rely solely on the women. The men spend most of their time helping to protect the cattle, and making sure none of the cattle run away. Women take care of the children, and also tend to perform more labor-intensive work than the men do. Such as carrying water and building homes. The men tend to handle more of the political issues of the tribe, care for the cattle, and slaughter the cattle for special occasions. One thing the Himba are well known for is their unique hair styles, and the women of the Himba’s red-like skin, which is why the Himba women are nicknamed “Red-skinned women”. The women cover themselves in otjize, a mixture of butter fat and ochre, as a way of protecting them......

Regional Asia

...For instance, the establishment of regional surveillance and monitoring frameworks has been pursued by both ASEAN + 3 and the EMEAP. ASEAN + 3 could focus on its financing function and strengthening of bilateral surveillance (between ASEAN + 3 and its individual members), in cooperation with the IMF. The EMEAP, meanwhile, needs to learn from the surveillance activities of the BIS as a role model, and focus on information exchange and monitoring of areas in which central banks have expertise, including the financial markets, payment and settlement, and banking supervision, to promote greater regional monetary and financial stability. If the connections between the various regional forums increase, regional financial cooperation can be promoted more effectively through synergy effects. Therefore, the forums need to engage more actively in official information exchanges. In addition, they would be able to expand the basis for cooperation in the long run by utilising regional central bank training organisations such as the SEACEN Centre, and thus increasing countries’ understanding of and interest in the overall financial cooperation projects being carried out currently. Just as Germany and France played leading roles during the European Union’s long economic integration process, major countries in the Asian region need to show their strong leadership and gather the political willpower to make regional financial cooperation successful in the future.

Skills Development in Namibia

...decade, there are likely to be many changes in the type of skills needed by the financial services industry. New roles will be created, and existing positions modified. As such, it is crucial that the financial services sector continuously improve the quality of its human resources and ensure an adequate supply of qualified human capital for future growth (Namibian Financial sector charter, 2009). 1.1 Background of the Study Skills shortage was identified as one of the biggest obstacles for the Namibian government to reach its economic growth targets (Joint initiative on priority skills acquisition, 2015). A number of studies conducted by the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industries (Institute for Public Policy Research, 2010, 2011) and Namibia Employers' Federation confirms such shortages (Links & Frederico, 2010). The 2014 global competitiveness report concluded that an inadequately educated workforce; poor work ethics in the national labour force and insufficient capacity to innovate were among the sixteen areas that cause difficulties in running business successfully in Namibia (World Economic Forum, 2014-2015). According to the Namibian Training Authority (NTA), Namibia needs qualified, skilled and motivated people in order to attain its Vision 2030 (Namibian Sun, 2015). Vision 2030 is the national developmental objective to turn Namibia into an industrialized country by 2030 The Namibian government through the Ministry of Finance, developed a......

IntegraçãO Regional

...Capitulo 1 Processo de Integração Regional O Processo de Integração Regional trata de um aprofundamento das relações entre atores com intuito de criar novas formas de governança para determinada região. Por esse motivo que estudo de processo de integração abrange áreas referentes à politica, economia e comercio entre os países envolvidos. Trata-se de uma interdependência onde os entes encontram no bloco regional a possibilidade de maximizar a busca por interesses comuns, primeiramente em torno da eliminação de barreiras ao livre comercio, serviços, capitais e pessoas, e posteriormente com a criação de órgãos supranacionais. No entanto, existe no meio acadêmico uma diversidade de definições acerca do conceito de integração. Para Andrés Malamud, utilizando da definição clássica elaborada por Ernest B. Haas, “La integración regional puede definirse como un proceso por el cual los estados nacionales ‘se mezclan, confunden y fusionan voluntariamente con sus vecinos de modo tal que pierden ciertos atributos fácticos de la soberanía, a la vez que adquieren nuevas técnicas para resolver conjuntamente sus conflictos.’ (Haas, 1971:6). A definición clásica de Ernst Haas debe agregarse que ‘lo hacen creando instituciones comunes permanentes, capaces de tomar decisiones vinculantes para todos los miembros. Otros elementos - el mayor flujo comercial, el fomento del contacto entre las elites, la facilitación de los encuentros o comunicaciones de las personas a través de las fronteras......

Regional Banks

...REGIONAL RURAL BANKS The Narasimham committee on rural credit recommended the establishment of Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) on the ground that they would be much better suited than the commercial banks or co-operative banks in meeting the needs of rural areas. Accepting the recommendations of the Narasimham committee, the government passed the Regional Rural Banks Act, 1976. A significant development in the field of banking during 1976 was the establishment of 19 Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) under the Regional Rural Banks Act‚1976. The RRBs were established “with a view to developing the rural economy by providing, for the purpose of development of agriculture, trade, commerce, industry and other productive activities in the rural areas, credit and other facilities, particularly to small and marginal farmers, agricultural labourers, artisans and small entrepreneurs, and for matters connected therewith and incidental thereto” . * Objective * Functions * Regional Rural Banks in India * Regional Rural Banks in Tamil Nadu RRBs established with the explicit objective of Top * Bridging the credit gap in rural areas * Check the outflow of rural deposits to urban areas * Reduce regional imbalances and increase rural employment generation The main objectives of setting up the RRB is to provide credit and other facilities‚ especially to the small and marginal farmers‚ agricultural labourers artisans and small entrepreneurs in rural areas.
