TANZANIA SETS UP ARBITRATION CENTRE TO BOOST INVESTMENT APPEAL

Tanzania Private Sector Foundation executive secretary, Godfrey Simbeye at a past event.
Tanzania is in the final stages of setting up an International Arbitration Centre that aims to hasten settlement of commercial disputes and promote foreign investments.

The Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) executive secretary, Godfrey Simbeye, said all technicalities have been completed and they were awaiting to launch the centre in July this year to start its operations.

"Our country has contracted major foreign investments and usually such investments encounter disputes which if taken to court take up to 10 years to reach a verdict thereby discouraging investors from investing in our country and the region as a whole," he said.

AMI HOSPITAL (TRAUMA CENTRE) FACES IMMINENT CLOSURE

AMI Hospital or Trauma Centre at Msasani in Dar es Salaam is facing imminent closure after it failed to comply with Court of Appeal order that wanted it to deposit in court 1,514,000 US dollars plus a monthly rent to a tune of 64,000 US dollars per month, following a tenancy agreement dispute.

A panel of three Court of Appeal judges, Justices Mbarouk Mbarouk, Salum Massati and Katherine Oriyo, ordered African Medical Investments (T) Ltd (AMI) to make the deposits a month after the ruling which was issued on 12 February 2015, an order that has not been honoured.

The court made their ruling in a civil application No. 185 of 2014 filed by AMI in protest against execution of a ruling on main commercial suit No.

104 of 2013 that it lost to its landlord (local businessman Navtej Singh Bains) in respect of a building where the company is conducting its business.

AMI Hospital had lost the case filed by the landlord for failure to pay rent for the past 26 months in a legal battle at the Tanzania Commercial Court in November 2014 and were issued with a Notice for Eviction by the landlord.

LOOK TO EAST - TO CHINA - PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE COUNSELS AFRICA

President Jakaya Kikwete makes a point in his conversation with President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe in Arusha shortly before the latter opened the 3rd Africa-China Young Leaders Forum over the weekend.
Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe -- in his capacity as the Chairman of the African Union (AU) -- has advised all countries on the continent to back track their former reliance on Western countries and start working with the East, especially China, as new development partners.

According to Mr Mugabe, in dealing with countries like China, there are usually no strings attached unlike Western States that usually impose unrealistic conditions for their support.

“And even then, African states either end up losing badly or get incited into wars and conflicts before being declared failed states by the same Western friends turned foes, the Zimbabwean leader observed.

CLYDE & CO UPDATE FOCUSING ON THE NEW IMMIGRATION BILL WHICH WILL AFFECT FOREIGN WORKERS IN TANZANIA


WESTERN BANKS AXED 59,000 JOBS LAST YEAR, MORE TO COME IN EUROPE

The Canary Wharf financial district is seen in east
London November 12, 2014.
(Reuters) - Top European and U.S. banks axed 59,000 jobs last year as they restructured and cut costs, with headcount expected to shrink further in Europe as bosses strive to improve profitability that has been hit hard by tougher regulation.

Lenders have also sold or shut businesses to narrow their focus to avoid falling foul of regulators concerned that some have become too big and complex.

Analysts said that European banks, especially those in the euro zone, are likely to wield the knife again because they remain the most unprofitable in the world.

"The screws will stay tight on headcount," said Aymen Saleh, managing director at Boston Consulting Group in London.

DHL EXPECTATIONS FOR AFRICA: 2015 OUTLOOK

Charles Brewer, Managing Director of DHL Express SSA.
In line with Sub-Saharan Africa’s (SSA) projected economic growth of 4.9%1 this year, which is double the projection for advanced economies (2.4%1), DHL SSA expects 2015 to be a year of growth for the logistics industry on the African continent, largely driven by increased consumer demand and the rapidly developing e-commerce industry.

This is according to Charles Brewer, Managing Director of DHL Express SSA, who was commenting against the backdrop of Deutsche Post DHL Group’s full year results released in March. DPDHL Group ended 2014 with revenues of EUR 56.6 billion, up 3.1% compared to 2013. He says that the company’s increased focus on e-commerce and emerging markets, including Africa, has led the group to achieve growth in both volume and revenue in 2014.

A new report by yStats.com2 revealed that despite Africa lagging behind other regions when it comes to the development of online infrastructure, business-to-consumer (B2C) sales will grow to double-digit numbers in EUR billions in the next three years.

Brewer says that as such, a key focus for DHL Express Sub Saharan Africa in 2015 is to further strengthen connectivity, both within the continent and globally. He says that this will be crucial to meeting the growing e-commerce market on the continent, and assist in driving further growth.

TULLOW OIL UGANDA LAYS OFF 120 WORKERS

At least 120 people in Uganda are the latest casualties of low global oil prices that have forced Tullow Uganda to downsize. In a rather drastic move, the company has decided to shrink employees by at least 88 per cent, majority of whom are Ugandans.

Daily Monitor has learnt that on Tuesday March 24, at least 120 Tullow Uganda staff were made redundant by the company.

The laid-off employees have been promised a severance package and advance salary of up-to three months, depending on the number of years they worked.

The low oil prices plunged Tullow Oil Plc into its first loss in 15 years. As a result, the company announced it would cut costs in order to become leaner. Uganda is one of those earmarked for the staff downsizing.

Tullow declined the opportunity to comment on the Uganda lay-offs when contacted via phone calls, emails and text messages.

In addition to applauding the tree planting initiative, he also commended the Bank’s Digitization move, citing the use of eStatements and Online Banking as a great example of the Bank’s contribution to Environmental conservation.

On her part, the Bank’s Head of Finance, Ruth Zaipuna, used the opportunity as a platform to reiterate the Bank’s support towards conserving the environment, covering the Bank’s various initiatives, and reminded participants on the various individual actions towards environmental conservation, such as not leaving tap water running and switching off their PCs at close of day, which collectively make a big contribution towards conserving the environment.
