Multi Sectoral Effort Needed to Host Diamond League Meet

first_imgMinister with responsibility for Sports, Hon. Natalie Neita-Headley, says the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association, with the full support of the Government, has begun to explore with the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) the possibility of Jamaica hosting a Diamond League meet. The Minster was speaking at the eighth regional Investment and Capital Markets Conference, held on January 24 at the Pegasus Hotel, in New Kingston. “It is clear from these discussions that by hosting a meeting in Jamaica, the Diamond League will be able to build the worldwide appeal of athletics. It is also clear that a Jamaica meeting will be able to provide world class entertainment by providing outstanding television images,” Mrs. Neita-Headley said. Mrs. Neita-Headley argued that having the Diamond League in Jamaica would give a fair chance to top athletes of all disciplines to gain international media exposure, earn their living and have their success in major championships honoured. She noted that internationally, most track and field athletes want to compete in Jamaica.“They see this nation as the Mecca of track and field, where their efforts will be fully understood and appreciated. They want to experience firsthand, the adulation of the same fans that have cheered on the Jamaican champions and applauded our regional friends when they compete at the national stadium,” she added.The Sports Minister outlined how the government would be involved in facilitating the hosting of a Diamond League Meet in the country, citing the availability of hotels and a stadium facility.She also pointed out that promotion of the event would have to be done through the Jamaica Tourist Board, the Caribbean Tourism Organization, the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation, SportsMax and other regional and international media.“The Government of Jamaica would be responsible for leading the discussion with our regional brothers and sisters to secure buy-in to the event; not as a Jamaica’s Diamond League meet, but as the Regional Diamond League meet, with the outcome being measurable regionally,” Mrs. Neita Headley said.The Minister added that to host a successful Diamond League would require that bureaucratic obstacles are kept to the absolute minimum in making the participation of athletes from all global destinations as pain-free as possible. She said this would include arrangements at immigration and customs to expedite arrivals and departures at the airports as well as ground travel arrangements for the duration of the meet.Discussions will also be held with the security forces so as to assist with the security arrangements for the visiting athletes, and the Ministry of Tourism and the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association would be involved to ensure that proper housing is available for all visiting athletes and their teams, as well as the media and persons who travel to Jamaica to watch the meet.“We have before us a real opportunity to leverage our success as a track and field super power. How we seek to capitalize on the dominance we currently enjoy will eventually reflect in our country’s balance sheet,” the Minister said.The Samsung Diamond League is an annual series of track and field meetings held from 2010 onwards. It was designed to replace the IAAF Golden League, which was held annually since 1998.last_img read more

JANAAC Extends Period for Free Pre-Assessment

first_img Mrs. Shirley said certification by JANAAC will improve testing and quality of products being produced for the local and international markets, in keeping with the standards outlined in the National Quality Policy 2017, which is now a White Paper. “We had this pre-assessment offer up to the end of last year. We did not have a lot of takers, but we are encouraging (inspection bodies) to apply. There is no cost associated and no professional fees. There will also be a 50 per cent discount on inspection fees if you are an inspection body. You will never get this again,” she said. Chief Executive Officer, Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation (JANAAC), Sharonmae Shirley, is encouraging local inspection bodies for goods and services to take advantage of the extended period for free pre-assessment being offered by the organisation. Story Highlights Chief Executive Officer, Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation (JANAAC), Sharonmae Shirley, is encouraging local inspection bodies for goods and services to take advantage of the extended period for free pre-assessment being offered by the organisation.She said that entities now have up to the end of April to benefit from the offer.“We had this pre-assessment offer up to the end of last year. We did not have a lot of takers, but we are encouraging (inspection bodies) to apply. There is no cost associated and no professional fees. There will also be a 50 per cent discount on inspection fees if you are an inspection body. You will never get this again,” she said.Mrs. Shirley was addressing a workshop on the National Quality Policy 2017 held at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel in St. Andrew on Tuesday (March 6).Mrs. Shirley said certification by JANAAC will improve testing and quality of products being produced for the local and international markets, in keeping with the standards outlined in the National Quality Policy 2017, which is now a White Paper.“The benefits of seeking accreditation far outweigh the cost of accreditation… . I am encouraging the inspection bodies right across the length and breadth of Jamaica to apply, and I remind you that an inspection body can just be an individual that performs inspection services,” she noted.An agency of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, JANAAC is the only internationally recognised accreditation body in the English-speaking Caribbean.It provides accreditation services to Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) consisting of laboratories and inspection and certification entities.To date, JANAAC has provided 28 accreditation licences to Jamaican entities, with the last licence handed over on January 31 to the Veterinary Services Diagnostic Laboratory (VSDL) to carry out tests on fish for the export market.The National Quality Policy 2017 articulates the Government’s position on the standard of goods and services produced and consumed in Jamaica.It supports the achievement of the country’s development goals as expressed in the National Development Plan – Vision 2030, by facilitating the production and export of quality goods and services through the establishment and use of the National Quality Infrastructure (NQI) to ensure compliance with global market requirements.last_img read more

Internal TD bank review of financing Dakota Access pipeline still weeks away

first_imgTom Fennario APTN National NewsLawyers working on a review of how the Toronto Dominion bank is investing in the Dakota Access pipeline said it has not idea when the project will be complete.In December, the bank issued a statement stating that it would undertake a review after protesters blocked several branches in Canada and the United States in an effort to get the bank to stop investing in the Dakota Access pipeline.“We’re focusing our attention on TD partly because it has invested the most money out of any Canadian bank into the Dakota access pipeline.” said Montreal demonstrator Meara Kirwin outside a downtown TD bank on a frigid February day.TD Securities is part of what’s called a lending syndicate – a group of banks that lends expensive projects money.In the case of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) TD has put in more than $360 million to help finance the controversial project.“We don’t think that banks should be funding human rights violations the way the Dakota access pipeline is doing in cooperation with the local police forces,” said Mohawk protester Kenneth Deer at a demonstration targeting a Montreal TD bank this past November.The response from the bank was to hire a human rights expert to conduct a review on behalf of the lenders and advise on recommended improvements.But Foley Hoag, the Boston law firm in charge of the review told APTN National News that despite having worked on it for more than three months, there’s no time frame to release the report.This comes at a time when court documents state the Dakota access pipeline might be operational as soon as next week.Now the demonstrators are wondering what’s taking the review so long.“Taking that long to do a review when the reality of the situation is very clear ethically and economically is completely unacceptable,” said Kirwin.TD declined to be interviewed for this [email protected]last_img read more
