… BoG contends rate quoted is not uniform transaction rateGovernment on Wednesday reacted to the statement released by the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association (GMSA) on Wednesday which suggested that there has been a significant fall in Guyana’s local currency.While Minister of State Joseph Harmon said the statement was far from reality, the Bank of Guyana (BoG) noted that the release will do nothing more than add fuel to the rising “speculative and destabilising activities in the foreign exchange market”, all of which, it said, could be harmful to the economy.Bank of Guyana Governor, Dr Gobind Ganga“The statement by the GMSA is inaccurate, since the $230 to $1 represent a very small representation of the financial market and had to do with the operation of debit and credit cards”. Harmon explained that the bulk of the financial market still has a weighted average of $215 to $1. “That is to say that the buying rate is $216 and the selling rate is $214,” Harmon told media operatives on Thursday.But his pronouncement was before the Bank of Guyana Governor, Dr Gobind Ganga sent out an official release condemning the GMSA statement.According to the BoG, the rate quoted by GMSA is not a uniform transaction rate; rather, it is the online rate charged by one of the largest commercial banks in Guyana for its credit and debit card transactions, which represents a very small share of the cambio market transactions.It reported that for the week ending March 14-17, 2017, the weighted average buying rate was G$214 while the weighted average selling rate was G$218. The turnover for the week, it said was US$40.0 million.The bank said total purchases and sales at the bank cambios were US$19.6 million and US$20.4 million respectively.“The aggregate working balance at the bank cambios was US$13.7 million at the end of business on the 17th March, 2017. One bank accounted for 32.8 per cent or US$4.5 million of the total working balance,” the BoG said in a statement.Further, the bank stated that demand at the end of the week was some US$8.0 million, with two banks accounting for the bulk of that demand. With this in mind, the BoG advised businesses against depending solely on one bank, but to rather pursue other banks to meet their demands for foreign currency at a competitive rate.Meanwhile, the BoG also reported that there has been hoarding of foreign currency by exporters, as evidenced by the large foreign currency balances that are being held in their exporters’ retention accounts. It said instead of using these balances to complete their transactions, they have been sourcing foreign currency in the market.“This has added further pressure on the demand for foreign currency and reduced the supply to the market. Both of these factors have contributed to the instability and depreciation of the rate,” the bank stated.The bank reiterated that there is sufficient foreign currency in the market to meet legitimate demand, continuing that the patience and cooperation of stakeholders are needed, to ensure that there is no undue speculation and further deterioration in the rate.The GMSA in a public statement on Wednesday estimated that the real exchange rate when available being used for the purchase of foreign exchange is $230 for the replacement of imported inputs into the sectors. It said it considered the issues affecting the manufacturing sector, including the reported deteriorating rate of the Guyana dollar and dire impacts it will have on business and employment.As a result, the GMSA is encouraging all of the sectors to implement cost cutting exercises and have noted that some entities have started to rationalise employment.The GMSA has also called on Finance Minister Winston Jordan to urgently hold Broad consultations on the matter and warned that failure to arrest the situation will result in devastating consequences.
0Shares0000LIVERPOOL, October 24- Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli is being investigated by Greater Manchester Police for ‘threatening’ a woman who took photographs of his red Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.Police were called to a housing estate at 3pm on Thursday in the Wythenshawe area of Manchester, where the 24-year-old was reportedly visiting his mum Rose Barwuah. GMP are investigating Balotelli’s use of ‘threatening behaviour’ after the forward demanded the woman stop taking photographs of the £240,000 car he shipped from Italy during the summer.It is understood a woman claimed that Balotelli moved towards her daughter, who was taking a photograph of the red sports car.A spokesman for GMP said: ‘We are investigating a report of threatening behaviour following an incident in Wythenshawe. Officers will be speaking to all concerned in due course.’Liverpool Football Club said they would not be commenting until all the facts had been established.It comes the day after Balotelli was caught swapping shirts with Real Madrid defender Pepe at half time during Liverpool’s 3-0 defeat in the Champions League at Anfield. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admitted he would ‘deal with’ the controversial £16million signing from AC Milan, who was substituted during the interval.Rodgers reminded the former Manchester City player that receiving souvenirs at half-time is not part of the ‘club culture’ at Anfield.“I had a similar incident last year and it was dealt with internally,” said Rodgers. “It’s exactly the same. I heard about it when I came off pitch. If you want to do that, it’s something you do at end of the game and something I will deal with.”-Daily Mail 0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
1 Chelsea striker Diego Costa Chelsea striker Diego Costa is thought to be open to a move back to Atletico Madrid, according to reports in Spain.Spanish newspaper Marca are claiming that Costa is suffering from homesickness and has made contact with his old club to discuss a possible return.The report goes on to suggest the 26-year-old is unhappy with life off the field in London, despite hitting 20 goals for the Blues as they clinched their first Premier League title for five years.Atleti boss Diego Simeone is thought to be keen on the prospect of reuniting with Costa but a move this summer remains unlikely.

Aston Villa made it a miserable return to the Midlands for Steve Bruce as they comfortably beat his Newcastle United side 2-0 on Monday night.Bruce, who was sacked by the Villans 14 months ago, is still yet to win the Magpies’ supporters over after succeeding Rafael Benitez in the summer. Getty Images – Getty 4 Check out all the live commentaries coming up across the talkSPORT network this week Reading vs Leeds (Tuesday, 7:45pm) – talkSPORT 2Valencia vs Chelsea (Wednesday, 5:55pm) – talkSPORT 2West Brom vs Bristol City (Wednesday, 7:45pm) – talkSPORT 2Astana vs Manchester United (Thursday, 3:50pm) – talkSPORT 2Braga vs Wolves (Thursday, 5:55pm) – talkSPORT 2Swansea vs Fulham (Friday, 7:45pm) – talkSPORT 2Newcastle vs Manchester City (Saturday, 12:30pm) – talkSPORTCharlton vs Sheffield Wednesday (Saturday, 12:30pm) – talkSPORT 2Tottenham vs Bournemouth (Saturday, 3pm) – talkSPORT 2Southampton vs Watford (Saturday, 5:30pm) – talkSPORT Goalkeeper Tom Heaton was also back between the posts after missing the 2-1 defeat at Wolves last time out with his own calf problem.Defender Matt Targett, substituted just after half-time at Molineux with concussion, bolstered the defence for the visit of former Villa boss Steve Bruce’s side.In the 20th minute, just as he prepared to take a throw-in for Villa down the left wing opposite Newcastle’s 18-yard box, Targett vomited on the pitch.Following his release of the ball, the left winger then threw up violently on the touchline, falling to his knees in doing so. Hourihane’s piercing low ball into the heart of the six-yard box caught United’s defence napping as they failed to pick up Anwar El Ghazi who had the simple task of stabbing home from a couple of yards out.It immediately prompted cries from the Villa fans of ‘Brucey, Brucey what’s the score?’ as they taunted their former manager, who was sacked nearly 14 months ago. Steve Bruce could not get the better of his successor, Dean Smith AFP or licensors Grelaish was influential upon his return to the Villa side 4 Getty Images – Getty After treatment and a drink of water, the summer signing from Southampton was able to continue. In the 32nd minute Villa superbly took the lead with a free-kick special from Conor Hourihane.After Grealish had been shoved in the back by DeAndre Yedlin a yard outside the area, it left the Republic of Ireland international in perfect range to strike.Hourihane initially touched the ball for Grealish to stop a yard away, allowing the midfielder to curl the ball around the wall and beyond poorly-positioned goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.Four minutes later Villa doubled the lead, again after Grealish had drawn a foul, this time to the left of the penalty area from Federico Fernandez, although it appeared as if the midfielder had gone looking for the challenge. Anwar El Ghazi was also a standout performer for the hosts at Villa Park Getty Images – Getty Conor Hourihane gave Villa the lead on Monday night 4 And if his side continue to perform as they did at Villa Park on Monday night, the former Sunderland boss will continue to see his popularity tumble on the Toon.For Villa, the three points conveniently coincided with captain Jack Grealish’s return to the side and moves them above West Ham United and Everton in the Premier League table.With games against Manchester United and Chelsea to follow, boss Dean Smith will be all too aware of how crucial these points are to their season. 4 LIVE on talkSPORT
United’s figures also point out a “significant future funding requirement” would be needed within the next year if the club were to continue trading once dropping down to the Championship and with this in mind, Thompson will hold discussions in the coming days.Earlier this month Thompson’s sister and fellow director Justine Mitchell shocked the club by resigning from the board in the wake of the Scotish Cup semi-final defeat to Hibernian.In February, Thompson apologised to supporters and admitted the United board had made crucial mistakes in the last 18 months that have been instrumental in the team’s sharp decline. Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson has travelled abroad to hold talks with potential investors in the Tannadice side, STV understands.The United chief has come for criticism from fans over his running of the club with the chairman of fans’ group the ArabTRUST telling STV change was required on and off the field.Thompson watched on from the stands as bottom club United lost out 3-1 to Hamilton on Sunday, a result which leaves them eight points off Kilmarnock with just 12 to play for. Disgruntled supporters held a protest outside the ground in the wake of the defeat with chants for Thompson to leave the club.Annual accounts, released last week, showed United’s wage to turnover ratio has increased and player sales are required going forward to sustain operating losses, which this year came to £799,000.
