Manufacturing in Britain appearsto be suffering another assault on its very existence.The collapse of Rover is dreadful news for the West Midlands. The realsignificance of the Rover problem has yet to work itself through into thecomponent supply sector for BMW/Rover. Anecdotal evidence suggests, by the way,that the component suppliers have been carrying the costs of high interestrates as the strength of the pound has drive the senior “partners” inthe supply chain to make good their losses by forcing down component prices. Somuch for the “partners” relationship.What is in store for Britain in the absence of manufacturing? It is trueorder books for some are OK at the moment. It is also true some aerospace firmsare looking forward to a reasonable future, and car firms like Peugeot arestill making a car the market wants. However, the net effects of high interest rates designed to keep a lid onthe notional value of my house in London are altering for ever the industrialprospects of Northern England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Inwardinvestors who are here already are unlikely to leave because we seem to lackthe courage to confront Britain’s xenophobia about the euro and high interestrates. But they will not expand. And will new manufacturers now come here? Wemight have the most flexible “valued asset” – our people – but themost highly prized asset in reality is money, and our money is too expensive.Perhaps we are to be rescued by the e-commerce industries. Or not. Forinstance, there is much to admire about Cisco Systems worldwide. I listened toone of its senior managers at a Swedish trade union conference on e-commercelast week. Its HR policies are cool to the point of asceticism. Two auditorsexamine on-line expense claims for 16,000 employees. They don’t do muchtraining in company time, but an enormous amount of distance learning issupported, with 80 per cent of sales and technical training done on-line. Theproductivity in Cisco per employee stands at $688,000, compared to the carindustry at $160,000. Salaries of executives are largely augmented by shareoptions. Perhaps in this stunning success story, we ought to be amazed as manyas 3 per cent of staff leave each year.What does all this tell us? I fear the success of e-commerce based in theSouth East, along with the bizarre dot.com frenzy at the Stock Exchange willfurther intensify the forces shattering our industrial heartlands. In the rushto join in with Internet expansion, our high interest rates will have to besustained for fear of reviving inflation. My house will continue to be worthfunny money. And I will get 13-plus Swedish crowns to the pound when I visit myunion friends there. None of this will make Birmingham a better place to live. Related posts:last_img read more

Holiday Shopping

first_imgBy Michael Rupured University of GeorgiaIt starts soon after the Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie are gobbled down, the football games are over and the family is headed home. That is when serious shoppers – with adrenaline pumping – sort through all the advertisements to plan for the big after-Thanksgiving-Day sales. More than ever, it is important to shop smart. That means developing a sound spending plan. With economic conditions still shaky, now is not the time to pile up a lot of holiday debt. Know how much money you can spend. To avoid problems in 2009, limit your spending to the cash you have set aside for the season.Think creatively. Everyone is tightening their belts this year. Remember, it is the thought that counts. Homemade gifts, food, clothing or crafts may be appreciated more than a mass-produced item purchased at a local store.Give the gift of time. Things like babysitting, car washing or housecleaning may also be well received.When you get to the stores, keep your spending plan and shopping list in hand. Think carefully about each and every purchase. Avoid deciding on an item in the spur of the moment. Take your time. Think about your needs and the amount of money you have.Use the ads that appear in newspapers and mailboxes around Thanksgiving to plan your purchases. Compare offerings to find the best values. Once you decide on a particular item, compare features, quality, prices, installation fees, delivery charges and service rates. Sometimes the cost to use and maintain the item makes selecting a more expensive model the cheaper option. Look in the newspaper classified section for items, too. Person-to-person buying often saves money.Running from store to store may not be feasible. Instead of driving around town, use the phone and Internet to find information, particularly for gifts you will send out of town. You may find that it is cheaper to order the desired items and ship them directly to the recipients.Shopping online can also be an easy way to locate special or unique gifts. Do be careful. Use a secure browser. Shop with companies you know and keep your passwords creative and private. Pay particular attention to shipping charges. Be sure to print out and keep records of your purchases.With a possible recession looming, retailers started sales earlier this year than in years past. That means plenty of bargains, but you will need to shop carefully to find them. As the holidays approach, many will slash prices so the best deals may be still to come. Waiting for last-minute price cuts makes sense for items that are not in short supply.This might be the year to avoid buying gift cards. If you buy a gift card at a store that then goes out of business, you may as well have flushed your money down the toilet. If you do buy gift cards, make sure you understand the terms. Some companies begin charging fees after a relatively short time. These fees can eat up the value of the card.Bargains that sound too good to be true are usually just that. Expect a fair and reasonable price for goods and services. Read labels, seals, tags and instruction booklets. Ask questions. Get the facts before you buy. Find out what is promised, who stands behind the promises and what you must do to benefit from any warranty. Your holiday spending plan is not just about the gifts you plan to buy. Remember to allow funds for parties, greeting cards, charitable giving and clothing to wear to holiday functions, along with other things that make the holiday season joyful for you and others.(Michael Rupured is a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension financial management specialist with the UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences.)last_img read more

It’s official! UHPA Days 2019 will be held in Vinkovci

first_imgAs it was before announced i.e. promised, it also received official confirmation today. UHPA Days in 2019 will be held in Vinkovci. Representatives of UHPA, Tomislav Fain, president and Ivana Maltar, head of the office visited Vinkovci yesterday and today and in cooperation with TZ Vinkovci agreed to cooperate on the organization of UHPA Day in Vinkovci, which will be held from 21 to 23 March. 2019. “After an agreement with the Vinkovci Tourist Board and hoteliers, I can confirm that the UHPA Days will be in Slavonia, more precisely in the city of Vinkovci. Everyone talks a lot about Slavonia, and we initially supported the Initiative to hold the Days of Croatian Tourism in Slavonia, as well as announced that we will hold the UHPA Days in Slavonia. We promised before that we would come, and now we are just fulfilling our promise. We do not just want to talk, but we want to give our all and concretely act to better position Slavonia in terms of tourism. First of all, I think that our members should get to know this part of Croatia because many of them do not know what Slavonia has to offer, and I personally think that it can do a lot. That is why we are coming for UHPA members to get acquainted with the tourist offer of Slavonia live “Said Tomislav Fain, President of UHPA. UHPA Days is an annual meeting organized by UHPA, the largest national professional association of travel agencies, bringing together more than 150 participants, travel agencies – UHPA members, representatives of the Ministry of Tourism, Croatian Chamber of Commerce, Croatian National Tourist Board, tourism professional associations and other Croatian stakeholders. tourism sector.This is a great opportunity for the whole of Slavonia to present its tourist offer to travel agencies and meet agents and representatives of travel agencies directly on the spot.Thus, 2019 will certainly be a great positive turning point for Slavonia, since the UHPA Days and the Days of Croatian Tourism (Vinkovci, Osijek) will be held in Slavonia.RELATED NEWS:TOMISLAV FAIN, UHPA: WE SUPPORT THE INITIATIVE TO HELD TOURISM DAYS IN SLAVONIA AND I ANNOUNCE UHPA DAY 2019 IN SLAVONIAlast_img read more
