Mnuchin to “identify laws and regulations that are inconsistent with a set of Core Principles of financial regulation.”As the capital markets are a source of liquidity for small businesses as they grow, invest, and hire, Treasury identified a list of ways to reduce the burden on companies that are looking to go public or stay public, while maintaining strong investor protections.According to Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, the U.S. has experienced slow economic growth for far too long. In this report, Treasury examined the capital markets system to identify regulations that are standing in the way of economic growth and capital formation.“By streamlining the regulatory system, we can make the U.S. capital markets a true source of economic growth which will harness American ingenuity and allow small businesses to grow,” Mnuchin said.Treasury’s recommendations include numerous measures to encourage companies toward public ownership, including “eliminating duplicative requirements, liberalizing pre-initial public offering communications, and removing non-material disclosure requirements, among other recommendations.”In light of any improperly tailored regulatory burden that can “benefit the largest companies, which are better positioned to absorb the costs, and discourage competition from new entrants,” Treasury has also identified opportunities to ease challenges for smaller public companies, including scaled disclosure requirements.A list of all of Treasury’s recommendations within this report is set forth as Appendix B, including the recommended action, the method of implementation.View the full report by clicking here.In addition, click here to view Treasury’s fact sheet.

GFF, Denmark FA ink historic ‘MoU’

first_imgTHE Guyana Football Federation (GFF), through president Wayne Forde, inked what is being seen as the cornerstone for their plans, heading into 2026 FIFA World Cup, with the Denmark Football Federation and its president Jesper Moller, at the Pegasus Hotel, in Kingston, Georgetown.Witnessed by CONCACAF’s Senior Project officer, Howard McIntosh and Union of European Football Associations’ (UEFA) Head of International Relationship, Eva Pasquier, the Memorandum of Understand (MoU) is tailored to see the two Federations focus on several key areas in the sport, both on and off the pitch.The football love-story between the two nations, according to Forde, dates back to 2017, and was birthed in Lagos, Nigeria, when they were guests at a FIFA Summit.“By the simple act of affixing our mark to sheets of paper, today we have sowed the seeds of friendship that in time, can produce a harvest of new and exciting opportunities for the long-term development of Guyana’s football,” Forde said.The terms established for the two Federations’ collaborative efforts for the next six years, state that there will be implementation of some key strategic objectives and programmes.Apart from coaching exchanges, infrastructure development will be one of the most important areas, with Forde pointing out that Guyana will benefit from Denmark’s engineering and architectural services for the technical centre and construction of the D’Urban Park football complex.Competition Management and Professional Football League Development is also on the table, since, according to the GFF, capacity-building for clubs, officials, administrators and oversight of establishment of a professional league are vital to Guyana.The area of Women’s Football development is also listed in their MoU as a comprehensive women’s football strategy.Perhaps one of the most important of them all, Grassroots Football and Youth Development, will see the GFF and Denmark Federation facilitating youth training camps in preparation for international competition.As it relates to Governance and Administration, the Denmark ‘FA’ will facilitate a Management exchange programme for the General Secretary, Finance Manager and other key Management Staff of the two entities.“No one should pretend as though genuine, meaningful and sustainable football development in a small nation is easy. It is not and I would also assure you that good intentions are simply not enough. For football to grow in any country, big or small, genuine partnerships that endure all seasons are essential,” Forde compounded.Meanwhile, Moller told reporters that he was interested in the GFF’s regional academies, stating, “We don’t have an academy or a training side in Denmark yet and perhaps we can get some knowledge about doing that. You have a big country but not so much infrastructure and it is quite the same in Denmark,”last_img read more

Latest: QPR 0 Liverpool 1 – Reds within sight of victory at Loftus Road

first_imgRichard Dunne’s 67th-minute own goal left bottom-of-the-table QPR staring at another defeat despite a much improved display.They have dominated large parts of the game at Loftus Road, with Leroy Fer hitting the Liverpool bar twice in the first half.With his position under scrutiny after a dismal start to the season, Rangers manager Harry Redknapp made major changes.He switched to a 4-4-2 formation with Fer playing from the left, while Dunne replaced Rio Ferdinand, Mauricio Isla was deployed on the right flank, Yun Suk-Young was given a Premier League debut and Bobby Zamora started up front alongside Charlie Austin.There was also a debut for summer signing Alex McCarthy, with the goalkeeper coming in for Rob Green, who has tonsillitis.Redknapp called for more energy from his side and they responded early on, pressing Liverpool with an intensity that was sorely lacking in previous matches this season.They came close to scoring when Austin bundled his way past two challenges and was denied by keeper Simon Mignolet before shooting into the side netting from an awkward angle as he tried to bury the resulting loose ball.And an unmarked Fer missed a glorious chance when he fired against the top of the bar from 10 yards out after Zamora had pulled the ball back from the right.Fer almost atoned when found by Zamora’s right-wing cross but after the Dutchman’s header bounced off the woodwork, Austin could not force the ball past Glen Johnson on the line and Martin Skrtel was eventually able to clear.QPR kept up the pressure after the interval and Sandro had an effort saved by Mignolet but the Brazilian midfielder suffered another injury setback on the hour mark and limped off.Rangers suddenly lost their way and were rescued by a fine save by McCarthy and Mario Balotelli’s poor finishing.With the home defence under pressure, Isla inadvertently nudged the ball into Adam Lallana’s path and after McCarthy did superbly to get a hand to the midfielder’s shot, Balotelli wastefully fired over from the rebound.But there was nothing McCarthy could do when Dunne sliced Johnson’s low cross into his own net following a quickly taken free-kick after substitute Armand Traore had been harshly adjudged to have fouled Raheem Sterling.It was Dunne’s 10th own goal in the Premier League. QPR (4-4-2): McCarthy; Onuoha, Dunne, Caulker, Yun; Isla (Phillips 45), Henry; Sandro, Fer; Austin, Zamora.

Dairy industry asks U.S. government to swiftly secure strong trade deal with Japan

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In an effort organized by the National Milk Producers Federation and the U.S. Dairy Export Council, 70 dairy companies, farmer-owned cooperatives, and associations today sent a letter to the United States Trade Representative and the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture asking the U.S. government to capitalize on the conclusion of Japan’s national elections and quickly finalize a strong trade deal with Japan in order to secure critical market access for the dairy industry here at home.“Given that Japan is an established market with a growing demand for dairy products, the successful negotiation of a robust trade agreement with Japan will bring a much-needed boost to the economic health of the U.S. dairy industry and set our industry up on a path to compete effectively there moving forward. Securing robust dairy export opportunities into this overseas market will be critical to restoring confidence for our dairy farmers and processors across the country,” they wrote.The continued success of the U.S. dairy industry relies on stable export opportunities to markets abroad and Japan represents a major opportunity to expand growth. However, the Japan-EU agreement and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans- Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) have allowed the European Union, New Zealand and Australia to position themselves to seize sales from the U.S. dairy industry. Swift negotiation of a trade deal with Japan that builds upon the best components of the Japan-EU agreement and the CPTPP is urgently necessary for America’s dairy farmers and processors.“Eroding dairy competitiveness in Japan is at a critical point. The time to re-level the tariff and access playing field is right now,” said Stan Ryan, President and CEO of Darigold. “Today Darigold supplies over 50% of the US American-style cheese exports to Japan. Those sales will soon be lost as competitor trade deals take effect.”The U.S. exported $270 million in dairy products to Japan in 2018 with room for further growth. However, without a strong U.S.-Japan trade agreement, half of U.S. dairy sales to Japan will be wrested by competitors, mounting to a toll of $5.4 billion in lost export sales when Japan’s deals with the EU and CPTPP are fully phased in.“Japan has been a very important market for Leprino Foods Company’s US-produced products for years,” said Sue Taylor, Vice President of Dairy Policy and Procurement for Leprino Foods Company. “We invested heavily in developing lactose and whey protein exports several decades ago and, more recently, mozzarella exports into this important market and believe that the market has significant further growth potential. We risk losing these sales and growth opportunities to competitors who recently finalized preferential trade agreements unless the US negotiates a strong agreement. We are very supportive of the administration’s efforts to secure an agreement that allows us to retain and grow this important market.”last_img read more
