Description Large projects outside ministries and governorates to facilitate investment operations New Morning Agencies Baghdad and Beijing, during the visit of a large delegation headed by Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to China, the oil-for-reconstruction and investment program, which includes Chinese companies to work inside Iraq in exchange for a hundred thousand barrels per day, while Iraq needs $ 88 billion to develop its infrastructure Shabby. Adel Abdul Mahdi, in an interview with a number of media broadcast by his office, that «China imports 20 percent of Iraqi oil production daily, and we agreed with them to establish a joint investment fund between the two countries financed by oil money. He revealed the status of Iraq a condition is to prevent Chinas monopoly to implement projects inside Iraq, but to make alliances with international companies. Salam Zaidan, an Iraqi journalist specializing in the field of economics, wrote in an article followed by «New Morning», that this agreement was not new, as Iraq and China in 2015 in the government of Haider al-Abadi, where Abdul Mahdi was the oil minister, the agreement "Silk Belt", It adopted the principle of oil for reconstruction, construction, investment and development, and was then referred to 100 projects to China, but stopped because of the political and security tensions that occurred at the time and led to the change of some of the ministers, which led the current government to re-ask the largest importers of its oil, namely : China and India. The volume of Chinese investment in Iraq is $ 20 billion, and investments are concentrated in the energy sector through the formation of a coalition of international companies or individually to develop some power plants. The annual trade exchange between the two countries $ 21 billion tends to Iraq, with a total exports of $ 15 billion of oil. Baghdad began to turn its back on US companies after its $ 15 billion electricity deal with Siemens, Germany, to leave infrastructure, leaving General Electric, which has been operating in Iraq for a very long time, as well as not reaching an agreement with Exxon Mobil. “To implement the $ 53 billion integrated South project. Iraq has begun to approve the reconstruction law, which will be chaired by the prime minister and will oversee large projects worth more than 210 million dollars, which means the removal of ministries and provinces from the implementation of these projects to reduce corruption and red tape, and facilitate the work of Chinese companies. "China is our primary choice as a long-term strategic partner," Electricity Minister Louay al-Khatib said on his Facebook page. We have started the financial framework with $ 10 billion, for a limited amount of oil, to finance a range of infrastructure projects. ” He pointed out that "the size of Chinese funding candidate for the rise of growing Iraqi oil production to employ in a way contrary to the policy of the past through construction, investment and activation of the reconstruction council." Iraq has initiated the first steps to implement this agreement by opening bank accounts. During the next few days, a Chinese delegation will start to visit Iraq and get acquainted with the strategic projects and agree on their implementation, such as the suspended train in Baghdad, Nasiriyah International Airport and others. The adviser to Prime Minister Abdul Hussein Hanin, who was a member of the Iraqi delegation, said that «the Iraqi-Chinese agreement extends to 20 years, through which Baghdad sends to China 3 million barrels per month at the world price, which is currently estimated financial value of $ 180 million. He added that «Iraq is currently selling its oil, and get his money after a month or two, and this agreement that the funds that will come are projects implemented by Chinese companies within the country. He added that «projects were identified according to 3 priorities, the first construction of highways and internal and modernization and the establishment of infrastructure and sewage, and the second construction of schools, hospitals and residential and industrial cities. The third is the construction of railways, ports, airports, etc. ” The Iraqi government signed agreements with China without the knowledge of the parliament, which made the latter begin to host officials to see the pros and cons of the agreements. He pointed out that "Parliament will take a strong position, if these agreements serve Iraq will pass, and vice versa," criticizing the government ignored parliament in signing agreements of this magnitude with China. A new problem that may arise before the Iraqi government is the objection of the oil provinces to the implementation of projects in the non-oil provinces. Consequently, it will lead to internal tensions and disrupt the implementation of projects, as happened with the petrodollar project, which gives the oil-producing provinces a $ 5 quota for each barrel they produce. For his part, said oil expert Sabah Alo that «Iraq went to China under pressure from Iran, and this is an attempt to embarrass the United States of America, which is currently experiencing a trade conflict with China. "So China might abandon us if its relations with America improve." He pointed out that the investment of oil in the development of infrastructure is a good step, rather than taking loans from foreign countries or granting foreign companies a percentage of project revenues, pointing out that Iraq will be committed to the OPEC agreement, and will not affect prices to increase production.

Description Of the CZK 100 million intended for the development of electromobility, 40 percent of the funds are still available until 30 September, when call No.11 / 2018 of the National Environment Program will end. Contributions for the purchase of electric vehicles, compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles and plug-in or conventional hybrids can be used by contributory organizations in addition to municipalities and regions. Newly, the support also includes the financing of charging infrastructure up to CZK 20,000. The call is national and non-competitive and the project preparation is not administratively demanding. In total, from the two previous calls, we register applications for more than 500 vehicles. In addition to the support of the Ministry of the Environment, other ministries also cooperate on the development of net mobility. The Ministry of Industry and Trade supports the purchase of vehicles and alternative propulsion for entrepreneurs, the Ministry of Transport supports the development of infrastructure for charging and filling stations, and the Ministry for Regional Development contributes to the development of green public transport in cities.

Description South Africa should discuss using worker pension funds to finance development and infrastructure projects, a proposal that has the backing of the countrys largest labour federation, President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Thursday. In its 2019 poll manifesto ahead of the May general election, the ruling African National Congress (ANC) mentioned investigating prescribed assets - where the government authorises the investment of retirement savings in certain developmental assets - but was short on specific details. ADVERTISEMENT "We need to discuss this matter (prescribed assets) and we need to discuss it with a view to actually saying what is it we can do to utilise the various resources in our country to generate growth in a purposeful manner," Ramaphosa told lawmakers. "We are facing a situation where our developmental needs are enormous, and in a number of other places pension funding is utilised for developmental purposes, for infrastructure and quite often those pension funds make good returns out of infrastructure developments." ADVERTISEMENT Analysts and opposition parties have raised concerns that prescribed assets would allow government to tap funds from the Public Investment Corporation (PIC), which manages more than R2-trillion of government employee pensions and is Africas biggest fund manager. The ANCs economics head told the Sunday Times newspaper last weekend that the party was eyeing prescribed assets to avoid any intervention from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) due to South Africas precarious economy. The IMF said earlier this month that although South Africas debt levels were approaching uncomfortable levels, the government had made no request for help. Ramaphosa, who has staked his presidency on turning a moribund economy around, said the ANCs traditional labour alliance partner, Cosatu, supported plans to consider using workers pensions to pay for infrastructure projects. Cosatu, the largest labour federation with around 1.6-million workers and which is in an alliance with the ANC, said it supported in principle the proposal to access pension funds. "We are supportive of that position but it is conditional. We believe those are the resources that can be utilised to fix a utility like Eskom that is very important to the economy," Cosatu spokesperson Sizwe Pamla told Reuters. Regularly cited by ratings agencies as a major risk, power utility Eskom depends on government bailouts to continue operating.

Description The Queensland Government has approved Pembroke Resources’ $1 billion Olive Downs metallurgical coal project in the Bowen Basin. Subject to Commonwealth Government approval, Pembroke will start construction of the project in 2020, with strict conditions to ensure local employment and minimisation of environmental impacts. The project is expected to create 1000 operational jobs and 500 jobs during construction, contributing an estimated $8 billion to the local economy. Olive Downs is forecast to produce up to 15 million tonnes of metallurgical coal a year once it is operational. Queensland Resources Council chief executive Ian Macfarlane welcomed the approval, praising the project for its contribution to the state’s economy. “At a time when Queensland’s unemployment rate is increasing and it is among Australia’s highest, the approval of Olive Downs coal project is a commitment of confidence amid attacks and threats of increased tax on coal,” he said. “The approval of projects like Olive Downs provides the opportunity for more jobs, more exports and more royalties for Queenslanders.” Queensland Minister for state development, manufacturing, infrastructure and planning Cameron Dick said the coal produced at the site would satisfy an increased demand for the commodity from Asia, which uses it for steel production. “The project will produce up to 15 million tonnes of metallurgical coal per year for export via the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal near Mackay,” he said. Olive Downs is set to capitalise on the use of existing road, rail, power and water infrastructure in the region and will operate alongside 25 existing mines. “The proposed project includes coal handling and crushing facilities at the mine’s Olive Downs South and Willunga precincts, a rail link to transport coal to the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal and a water pipeline and power transmission line,” Dick said. The project will follow the guidelines of the Strong and Sustainable Resource Communities Act, requiring Pembroke to encourage workers to live in local towns like Moranbah, Nebo, Dysart and Middlemount. This intends to reduce the company’s reliance on fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) workers. The public was invited to have their say on the draft environmental impact statement for the project between September and October 2018, with 37 submissions received.

Description EIB Group achieves EMAS registration ENFRDE 14 May 2019. .Print The EIB Group is officially joining the EMAS family In providing extra support to monitor and manage green performances, target setting and implementation, EMAS will provide key benefits EIB is ahead of its target in terms of its GHG emissions and, with EMAS, it is on its way to go the extra mile The EIB Group has registered officially with the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS (1)), the European environmental management instrument. This was confirmed by the Ministère du Développement Durable et des Infrastructures (Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure), the Luxembourg body responsible for issuing EMAS certification. After an intensive 8-month period of internal work, the EIB Group is joining the ever-growing EMAS family in Luxembourg. On its successful EMAS registration, EIB Secretary General Marjut Santoni said: "This achievement is attributable to EIB-wide efforts and intense cooperation across all services. Being EMAS-minded will motivate each one of us to minimise our environmental impact. As the EU financing institution targeting climate action as a priority, we must demonstrate the same strong commitment to the environment that we require from our stakeholders and business partners.” The EIB Group – EIB and EIF, the European Investment Fund – has been measuring, managing and publishing its own greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on an annual basis since 2007, and it has introduced measures to reduce its climate impact in line with the EU’s 2020 goal of reducing emissions by 20% below 1990 levels. The EIB Group is well ahead of this target, having achieved a 48.5% reduction in its GHG emissions per employee since 2007. Since 2014, the EIB Group has also fully offset its own residual GHG emissions through the purchase of emissions reductions – validated, certified and regularly assessed vis-à-vis the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and the Climate Community and Biodiversity Standard (CCBS). In line with this trend, the EIB will apply the EMAS framework, enabling it to set specific annual objectives and targets, helping to measure, manage and improve its overall environmental performance year on year in key areas such as energy efficiency, waste management and staff mobility among others. Using EMAS, the Bank will apply a consistent and recognised environmental management system across the institution. This will provide a holistic view on what the EIB – department by department – is doing to be ever more sustainable. The overall objectives of EMAS are to evaluate, report to the public and promote the continuous improvement of internal environmental performance. An Environmental Statement will be published annually, the first of which can be found on the EIB website. About the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme. EMAS is recognised at the international level. It was developed by the European Commission for companies and other organisations to evaluate, report and improve their environmental performance. EMAS is available for every type of organisation eager to improve its environmental performance. It spans all economic and service sectors and is applicable worldwide. More information on EMAS is available on http://ec.europa.eu/environment/emas/index_en.htm.

Description The provinces of Buenos Aires, San Juan, Córdoba, Chubut and Catamarca are positioned at the top of the ranking to attract new projects and their associated capitals. MARCH 11, 2019 PILAR SÁNCHEZ MOLINA The Faculty of Economic Sciences of the University of Buenos Aires and the Subsecretariat of Renewable Energies have developed the Provincial Index of Renewable Attractiveness (IPAR), an instrument that combines the measurement of the degree of development of renewable energies in each jurisdiction of the country together with the attractive potential for future investments. This index covers the analysis of regulatory, fiscal and institutional aspects of each jurisdiction, as well as the evaluation of the implementation of technologies, the use of resources and the development of infrastructure in each jurisdiction. For the calculation of the variables, the level of compliance with laws No. 27.191 of "National Promotion Regime for the Use of Renewable Sources of Energy Destined to the Production of Electric Power", and No. 27,424, was used. establishes the "Regime of Promotion to the Distributed Generation of Renewable Energy Integrated to the Public Electric Network". Both laws are analyzed based on two axes; on the one hand, the regulatory, fiscal and institutional, and on the other the one related to technology, resources and infrastructure. The first axis evaluates, in relation to law No. 27,191, the adhesion to the law, the exemption in the tax on gross income, exemption in the tax on stamps and real estate, if the jurisdiction has a specific area which is responsible for local regulation and the promotion of renewable energies, and if there are additional rules in the jurisdiction for generation in networks. With regard to Law No. 27,424, this first axis assesses the adherence to the law, the additional local regulations (which include self-consumption, technological compatibility and the institutional role), the exemption in the gross income tax, the exemption in the tax on stamps and complementary benefits. Regarding the technology, resources and infrastructure axis, in the case of Law No. 27.191, the MW in operation and the projects in operation, the MW awarded in the RenovAr Program and MATER, the number of authorized large users that left joint purchases, projects in the national registry of renewable energy projects (RENPER), MW in RENPER, the number of companies that participated in the RenovAr and MATER program, number of companies that were awarded in the RenovAr program and in MATER, the quality of the wind and solar resource with respect to the points of interconnection (PDI), the available bioenergy resource, the indebtedness of the distributors within the jurisdictions and the multimodal connectivity of the transport. Regarding Law No. 27,424, it has not been included in this first version of the IPAR because there is no systematized public information on the facilities distributed. It is expected to be able to develop it in future editions. According to the results of the report, the provinces of Buenos Aires, San Juan, Córdoba, Chubut and Catamarca are positioned at the top of the ranking to attract new projects and their associated capitals.

Khalid al-Sultan, president of the King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy, said the city had asked technical suppliers in the United States, France, Russia, China and South Korea to make initial offers. In the light of the presentations, some of the proposals were sent for further presentations later, in order to establish a contract for the specification of my site to establish the two Saudi nuclear reactors on the coast of the Arabian Gulf. The Saudi measure followed a report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which reviewed the advanced steps Riyadh has taken in developing its nuclear power infrastructure, and laid down a legislative framework and comprehensive studies to support the steps required for the program. The report was received by Dr. Khalid Al-Sultan during a meeting in Riyadh yesterday with the deputy head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mikhail Chodakov. The report reviewed the development of Saudi Arabias nuclear energy infrastructure, the Agencys recommendations and proposals regarding the completion of the basic requirements before the start of the procurement process and the competition to build the first atomic power station in the Kingdom, according to the agencys methodology known as the Milestones Approach. This was stated in the IAEA Final Report of the Integrated Nuclear Infrastructure Review Mission in Saudi Arabia (INIR), which was held from July 15 to 24, 2018.
