first_imgNewly 1st division club and tournament favorite FC Fassell could be among the casualties as the preliminary rounds of Coca-Cola Big Eight (8) Tournament concludes today.A 2-2 draw against Aries FC on Monday at the Blue Field in the ongoing pre-season tourney has placed a question mark over FC Fassell’s future in the Group B stage.Coach Matthew Julutweh’s men is expected today to host Darling Club, IE in the opening derby, knowing that a draw – let alone a defeat – is no longer an option against Papa Kamara’s men.IE is expected to look for at least a draw to crossover to the semi finals, while FC Fassell want a victory and at least 3-0 to march on.In the second match, group leader NPA Anchor is also looking for a draw against Aries FC but mostly a win to maintain on top.Aries FC, who also has one point desperately, needs a win with more goals to overcome runner-up IE (if IE draw).However, with FC Fassell battling not to bow out of the Coca-Cola Tourney; LISCR, Nimba and Barrolle are fighting to grab the second place.Group B leader BYC is clearly in the semi finals with 9 points having narrowly whipped LISCR FC 1-0 yesterday.The Gardnersville based team – LISCR FC still sits on the table with 2 points and hoping for a nil draw to qualify.   But a win for either side, Barrolle or Nimba United joins BYC to represent Group A in the Semi finals.Meanwhile, the technical staff of FC Fassell headed by Coach Matthew Saygba Julutweh is expected to be sacked having drawn with Aries FC 2-2 on Monday.The 34-year-old was warned of losing his job along with his deputy, physical and goalkeeper trainer and team manager if he failed to win the highly contested tournament over a dishonorable 4-0 defeat by NPA ‘Ruthless’ Anchors on Saturday.In a letter dated May 2, FC Fassell President Reginald K. Nagbe said their performance against NPA was very discouraging and humiliating despite early preparation and the entire technical staff would be sacked if they don’t win the remaining two games.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Richards Bay IDZ opens for business

first_img9 September 2011 Creating opportunities, developing skills The 216-hectare industrial estate was promulgated in 2002 as a public entity, with 60% of its shares held by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development and Tourism and 40% by the City of uMhlatuze, the municipality that incorporates Richards Bay and Empangeni. “We are strategically placed – about 500km from the financial capital of the country, located adjacent to a natural deep sea water port, and operating in a region full of global players,” Richards Bay IDZ chief executive Ike Nxedlana said at a sod-turning ceremony this week. When considering incentives that involve customs control areas, Mabuyakhulu said it was important to consider the costs of administration as well as the need to discourage rent-seeking or mobility of investors when a better short-term incentive was available elsewhere. According to Mabuyakhulu, the development of a national policy on special economic development zones will allow for additional incentives to further entice investors to these zones, with most countries with similar zones offering a range of tax exemptions and reduced or waived customs duties. “This is particularly the case for SMMEs that are involved in the construction industry as well as those that will benefit through up-streaming, down-streaming and beneficiation initiatives,” he said. “It is also important that some creative incentives are packaged around the creation of jobs in relation to the objectives of the New Growth Path,” he said. “Incentives should be packaged in such a way that industries that have a high labour absorption rate are attracted to the zone.” To date, the only investor operating within the zone is Tata Steel, which has an investment of R960-million, and employs 184 permanent staff and 85 full-time contract employees. According to KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Economic Development and Tourism Mike Mabuyakhulu, the main purpose of attracting foreign investment to IDZs are to encourage value-addition activities and the export of beneficiated products from South Africa, and in the process also to transfer skills and technology to local companies. The Richards Bay Industrial Development Zone (IDZ) on South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal coast has finally commenced its Phase 1A development in preparation for forthcoming investors. He suggested that the IDZ policy could refer to sector specific incentives based sectors promoted through Industrial policy. The Richards Bay IDZ will also undertake a study and prepare analytical reports to identify niche foreign markets and suggest methods to intensify local participation in the IDZ programme.center_img Nxedlana added that many other potential investors had shown an interest in the zone, naming pulp and paper producer Pulp United as one of them. Developing a national policy The availability of feedstock such as aluminium, heavy metals, various chemicals, wood, pulp, paper, agricultural products, gas, coal and electricity also offer numerous downstream manufacturing possibilities for investors. According to Nxedlana, the rapid development of phase 1A is likely to enhance the role played by small and medium-sized enterprises. He added that by October this year, they would announce the identity of a company that would invest about R1-billion to establish a fertiliser exporting company within the Richards Bay IDZ, creating about 1 000 indirect jobs during the construction phase and 150 permanent jobs thereafter. He added that tax incentives are easier to provide than changes to the national tax regime, and can be a means for governments to signal their commitment to investment. Nxedlana said that they were also on the verge of establishing the first customs controlled area within an industrial development zone in South Africa, at Tata Steel’s facilities. It will also be the first area to test the customs control area policy recently approved by the South African Revenue Service. “When investigating Intel’s decision to invest in Costa Rica, the expression of the Costa Rican government’s support and commitment through the provision of a tax incentive was of huge importance to their decision to invest … even though Costa Rica did not offer the highest incentives compared to other nations competing for investments,” he explained. “The key reason for developing zones is for developing industrial capability through utilising and learning from new technologies from the foreign firms rather than just solely generating foreign direct investment,” he said.
