first_imgThe UK government and the Swiss Federal Council have approved the transition of a trade agreement, allowing businesses to continue trading freely after the UK leaves the European Union.This is the first and one of the most significant existing trade agreements to the UK to have been agreed as part of the government’s preparations to ensure continuity for businesses and consumers as we leave the EU.There are around 40 existing EU trade agreements that the UK government is seeking to provide continuity for and a number of other agreements are at an advanced stage.The agreement replicates the existing EU-Switzerland arrangements as far as possible and will come into effect as soon as the implementation period ends in January 2021, or on 29 March 2019 if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. It has now been initialled by both countries.Britain has a major trade surplus with Switzerland, with exports worth £19.04 billion last year. British exports have grown by 41.1% in the last 5 years.International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox said: Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, said: It’s good news that a transition to a trade agreement with Switzerland has been agreed. A great deal with the EU needs to be delivered alongside continuity of the trade agreements the UK already enjoys through single market membership. The opportunity now is to reach agreement on the remaining deals. This is one of the most significant existing trade agreements, with British companies exporting £19 billion worth of goods and services last year, and it will provide the certainty that businesses need to continue trading freely. This is the first of around 40 trade agreements that we will provide continuity for and many other agreements are also close to being agreed. It is a vital part of our no deal planning and it means that businesses and consumers can continue to benefit from our close trading relationships with the world beyond the European Union. British jewellery, precious stones and metal are the largest goods exports to Switzerland, worth £10.7 billion in 2017. Pharmaceutical products also continue to be one of the UKs biggest exports to Switzerland, worth over £500 million in 2017.Once the agreement is signed, both the UK and Switzerland will seek parliamentary approval for the agreement.last_img read more

The celebration will take place at “Venice” sign, at the intersection of Pacific and Windward Avenues.Densmore stated, “Very apropos that The Doors are jumpstarting our 50th in Venice where we started….Our songs sprang up out of the Pacific like beautiful, edible silver fish… and apparently the world took a big bite.”Councilmember Bonin explained, “Venice is a place where many have chased their pleasures or dug their treasures. It is a place that birthed The Doors and taught us all to cherish the funky, weird, and world-renowned vibe that Jim, Ray, Robby, and John helped make famous….I am very happy to be amongst the feast of friends celebrating The Doors’ 50th anniversary, and I thank the band, their management, and the Venice Chamber of Commerce for making this celebration possible.”The self-titled EP featured classic tracks such as “Break On Through (To the Other Side),” “The Crystal Ship,” “Light My Fire,” and the magnum opus “The End.” The Doors went on to become one of the most recognized bands of the 60’s, with lead singer Jim Morrison becoming not only a major sex symbol, but one of the most enigmatic artists of the generation.“Break On Through (To the Other Side)”:last_img read more

Barbados Creating Lab to Fight Cybercrime

first_imgWith a population of approximately 276,000, Barbados has an Internet coverage rate of approximately 73.3 percent, where 23 percent of subscribers use broadband, according to the report “Cyber security trends in Latin America and the Caribbean,” issued by the Organization of American States (OAS) in June 2013.

Businesses also have a stake in solving the problem, and are seeking the best methods to protect themselves from cyber-criminals. Authorities expect that the policy framework for the cyber crime laws will be implemented this year, Commerce Minister Donville Inniss said on April 8 at a conference on “The Impact of E-Commerce on Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses,” the Gisbarbados website reported. The Organization of American States (OAS) said the country’s Telecommunications Unit is collecting data on cyber attacks and incidents in government departments. Reports indicate that several cyber security incidents affected various departments of the government at the beginning of 2014 and have been communicated to the office of the Prime Minister. The new data will lead to a critical analysis of the types of attacks and their frequency, as well as the mitigation techniques used and their effectiveness. “Every day there are stories of businesses that had to halt their operations, or lost millions of dollars in revenue because someone hacked into their server,” Inniss said. So it is important that companies do all they can to protect their data, IT infrastructure, and customer information, he added. “Every day there are stories of businesses that had to halt their operations, or lost millions of dollars in revenue because someone hacked into their server,” Inniss said.

When it does open, the cyber security center will cover four main areas: protection of security information, greater surveillance of the flow of finances to and from the Caribbean, protection of personal data, and protection of minors online so they are not vulnerable to exploitation by child pornography networks, said Armando Rodríguez Luna, a Mexico City-based security analyst.
