27 July 2005South Africa and Malaysia are to establish a joint working committee to expand trade and investment between the two countries.The committee, which will meet in Malaysia at the end of the 2005, will facilitate trade between all strategic sectors of the two economies.Trade and Industry Minister Mandisa Mphahlwa says these sectors will include agriculture, tourism, science and technology as well as the automotive industries – a particularly promising area, with Malaysia aiming to become the automotive hub of the region.“We are talking about a huge demand of about 500 million people, and as a major exporter of automotives, we think establishing that kind of relationship could give us a wider market,” Mphahlwa says.The decision to set up the committee comes as Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his delegation are visiting South Africa.The Prime Minister held political and economic discussions with President Thabo Mbeki in Pretoria on Tuesday.Finance Minister Trevor Manuel and Malaysian Minister of International Trade and Industry Rafidah Aziz signed an agreement on avoidance of double taxation.Manuel said the deal means that South African companies investing in Malaysia will not be taxed twice. “Malaysian companies that invest in SA will be taxed in Malaysia and South African companies that invest in Malaysia will be taxed here,” Manuel said.“And so, it’s just ensuring that in either case the government will get its fair share of the taxation deal.”While the leaders of the two countries urged increased level of investment between the two countries, Mbeki said South Africa and the whole continent had much to learn from Asia in addressing issues of economic growth and alleviating poverty.“It’s clear that with regards to responding to the many challenges, there’s a great deal that the African continent can learn from the Asian continent,” Mbeki said, citing Malaysia’s success in ensuring the growth of its economy after the crisis that the country experienced in 1997.“I think the Asia-Africa Partnership Forum increases the possibility of us to draw from the successes of Asia with regards to managing the economy, addressing issues of poverty, modernisation, and managing democratic processes.”Source: BuaNews
“The Western Union Mobile Money Transfer service is a key part of our multi-channel strategy to offer our consumers numerous ways to send and receive money,” said Western Union mobile transaction services head Khalid Fellahi. Pan-African mobile operator MTN has teamed up with global payment services company Western Union to introduce international mobile remittance services in the 21 countries where MTN operates. Convenient, secure and affordable Once introduced, the service will allow MTN subscribers to conveniently send and receive Western Union Money Transfer transactions using their MTN MobileMoney accounts. The service offers consumers a convenient, secure and affordable way to send money within the same country, buy airtime and make basic utility payments using their MTN mobile phones. International remittance service “After bringing domestic financial services to many of our customers, we will now enable customers to receive money from abroad on their mobile phones to take out at their convenience with their local merchant, send it to family or pay a bill,” MTN MobileMoney executive Pieter Verkade said in a statement last week. When the new international remittance service is activated, MTN subscribers registered for MobileMoney will be able to receive Western Union Money Transfer transactions in their mobile accounts. MTN’s MobileMoney service is currently available in Benin, Cameroon, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Ivory Coast, Rwanda, South Africa and Uganda, with pilots under way in several other markets. In addition, MobileMoney users in certain countries will be able to send Western Union Money Transfer transactions directly from their mobile phones for payout at one of Western Union’s 386 000 Agent locations in 200 countries and territories around the world. According to the World Bank, Uganda receives nearly US$500-million in remittances every year, making up 3% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). “This alliance with MTN … will introduce cross-border remittances to an entirely new segment of customers by allowing them to send and receive money using just their mobile phones.” The company also recently announced an agreement with EnStream in Canada and State Bank of India in India, and has other agreements for Mobile Money Transfer with banks in Tunisia, Libya and South Africa. An MTN subscriber who receives a Western Union Money Transfer transaction to their MobileMoney account will be able to use the funds to pay bills, top up airtime, send money domestically and internationally, or withdraw cash at MobileMoney agents or any participating ATM.

Mandela’s nudibranch, a quaintly appealing species of sea slug.

In Paris, France, pedestrians can stroll along the Avenue du President Nelson Mandela in Arcueil, located in the city’s southern suburbs, while there is a Nelson Mandela Boulevard in Caracas, Venezuela.Dakar in Senegal boasts the Avenue Nelson Mandela, and there are more Mandela Avenues in Glamorgan, Harlow and Falkirk, UK; Georgetown, Guyana; and Schrijndel, Netherlands, as well as a Mandela Road in Culemborg, Netherlands, and Uyo, Nigeria.The UK has several versions of Mandela Close and Mandela Way respectively, and there is a Mandela Highway leading into Kingston, Jamaica. Not to be outdone, the authorities in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, have established the grandly-designated Nelson Mandela Highway Road, and there are Mandela roads, places, paths, parkways, interchanges, links, courts and streets all around the world.In Italy, there is a municipality or comune named Mandela, situated in the province of Rome, about 40km northeast of the Italian capital. A few cities have named stadiums after Mandela – besides the Nelson Mandela Multipurpose Stadium in Port Elizabeth, there’s one in Port Louis, Mauritius; in Kampala, Uganda; and in Torrevieja, Spain.For those who want to do their own long walk while remembering the elder statesman, the Madiba hiking trail in the Eastern Cape passes through his home town of Qunu. The Mandela Garden in Leeds, UK, as well as the Nelson Mandela ornamental garden in Kingston-upon-Hull, Yorkshire, UK, the Nelson Mandela Park in Montreal, Canada, and Mandela Park in Hoorn, Netherlands, offer a chance for peaceful contemplation.You can even wine and dine in his presence by proxy, at the Café Mandela in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Mandela Bar at Bristol University, or Madiba Restaurant in New York, which has served up peace and love since 1999.Mandela’s former wife Winnie has not been left out – in 1983, the New York City square in front of South Africa’s UN mission became the Nelson and Winnie Mandela Plaza.Port Louis, Mauritius; New Delhi, India; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; The Hague, Netherlands; Tunis, Tunisia – it seems unlikely that any other world icon has so many tributes in so many places.Not just roadsMandela’s passionate belief in education is reflected in a long list of schools, scholarships, programmes, awards, libraries, centres, chairs, bursaries and funds – not just in South Africa or even the continent, but far beyond. A few of them are the Ecole Nelson Mandela, in Bamako, Mali, the Mandela Children’s Learning School in Compton, US, and the Mandela Institute for Human Rights in the Palestinian National Authority Area, Jerusalem, Israel. Students at the Nelson Mandela Educational Centre in A Lama, Spain, the Nelson Mandela State International School in Berlin, Germany, the Mandela Supplementary School in London, UK, and the Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution in New Delhi, India, study under the gaze of one of the world’s most ardent champions for the education of youth.The Australian High Commission in South Africa awards 20 Australia Mandela scholarships annually, given to academic staff who wish to study for their masters’ degrees at Australian institutions. At the University of Michigan, the Dubois-Mandela-Rodney postdoctoral fellowship is given to scholars studying Africa or the African diaspora. A Mandela scholarship fund administered by Leiden University in the Netherlands offers African postgraduate students the chance to study for a year at the university. The Mandela Rhodes Foundation supports the development of leadership capacity in Africa.Needless to say, Mandela himself has been the recipient of numerous awards, honorary degrees, life memberships, civic honours, freedoms of towns and cities, and various other accolades. According to the Mandela Centre of Memory, the statesman has collected more than 1 100 of these honours over the years.They include the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, which he won jointly with then-president FW de Klerk, and an honorary doctorate in liberal arts from Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, in 1997. He can also add the Civil Order of the First Class from the Sultanate of Oman (1999), the Order of the Lion of Malawi (2001), the freedom of the city and county of Cardiff, Wales (1998), and honorary citizenship of Canada (2001) – the first time in history that the honour was given to a living person – to his list, as well as hundreds more.There are a host of living creatures, organisms and plants named after the former president, such as Protea cynaroides Mandela, which was revealed in 1988 as an 80th birthday present; Triacanthella madiba, a species of springtail named by scientists at Stellenbosch University; Australopicus nelsonmandelai, an extinct species of woodpecker named in 2012; an indigenous species of African orb-weaver spider named Singafrotypa Mandela in 2002; the Paravanda Nelson Mandela orchid, named in 1997; and the beautiful Strelitzia reginae Mandela’s Gold, named in 1996.Some unusual offerings include a landfill site in Georgetown, Guyana, an apartment block in the long-running British television sitcom Only Fools and Horses, called Nelson Mandela House, and a fundamental nuclear particle discovered at Leeds University in 1973 and named the Mandela Particle.Then there is the nudibranch, or sea slug, Mandelia Micocornata, named in 1999. However, this gesture was eclipsed by the naming of an entire family and genus of sea slugs after him – family Mandeliidae, genus Mandelia.Poems, stamps, aircraft, racehorses, trees, gold coins and medallions named after him or bearing his likeness – there is seemingly no end to the respectful tributes bestowed on this symbol of reconciliation and forgiveness.
