In December 2019, the property company signed a similar cooperation agreement with four other banks, Bank Mandiri, Bank BNI Syariah, Bank Tabungan Negara and Bank Panin, Repower president director Aulia Firdaus said following the signing.“We are optimistic about the cooperation with the three banks. We will be able to achieve our sales target of Rp 72.92 billion,” the company’s marketing director, Andy Kusuma Natanael, said at the same event.Despite the sluggish conditions of the property market, Andy expressed optimism that this year’s sales target could be achieved as sales had continued to increase since last year, in line with a decline in interest rates. The company’s total sales rose 176.9 percent to Rp 21.6 billion in 2019 from Rp 7.8 billion in 2018.Read also: Eco-housing projects must obtain green certificates to benefit from incentives “We are hoping that, in 2020, with the lower interest rate, the demand for new houses will increase,” Andy said, pointing to a more favorable monetary policy as a reason for his optimism.BI cut its benchmark interest rate by 25 basis points from 5 percent to 4.75 percent last month in an effort to boost economic growth. The policy was welcomed by Repower’s bank partners. The interest rate cut is expected to further reduce mortgage rates, which range between 7 and 10 percent. (ydp) Topics :
Fishermen in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) have suffered a major decline in their income not only because of smaller fish catches but also as a result of a fall in prices because of distribution disruption caused by emergency measures to curb the spread of COVID-19, a survey says.According to a survey conducted by local NGO Perkumpulan Pikul, the revenue losses could amount to Rp 2 trillion (US$133.8 million) in 2020.The survey also found that the decline in fish production and the fall in prices have severely affected the livelihoods of about 66,525 fishing households comprising 226,526 people. “These figures are related to the COVID-19 impact on fishermen and small-scale fisheries in mid-April,” the organization’s program manager Andry Ratumakin told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.He said fish production in the province had declined sharply in recent months because of rough seas that hampered fishing activities. Andry estimated that fish production would decline by 50 percent this year to 78,845 tons from about 157,691 tons in the previous year.Despite the fall in production, the province will still enjoy a surplus, because the fish consumption of the province’s 5.4 million population is expected only to reach 12,860 tons a year, he said.“NTT still has a surplus of 65,985 tons of fish. The problem is how we distribute it amid the movement restrictions for COVID-19,” Andry said, adding that the distribution problem had caused a fall in fish prices by between 50 and 75 percent. To maintain the people’s purchasing power and provide them with high-protein foods, the NGO urged the government to provide relief funds for local fishermen affected by the distribution disruption.The organization also urged the government to help bridge fish producers with buyers by re-opening the access to market with sufficient health protocols, while also instructing civil servants to purchase fishery products.“The Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry could also purchase fishery products and distribute them to the people and purchase other products made by local producers to keep the rural area’s economic engine running,” Andry said.To cushion the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on low-income families, the NTT provincial administration has allocated Rp 957 billion from the central government’s village fund program, the province’s development planning and research agency head Lecky Koli said.“Out of the Rp 3 trillion village funds allocated to our province, we took Rp 957 billion to help low-income citizens affected by COVID-19,” he said.The funds will be given to low-income families who have not received other social security programs such as the Family Hope Program and noncash staple aid, Lecky added.“We are aiming to provide income for poor people who haven’t been registered, who have lost their job because of COVID-19, and those who are terminally ill,” he said, adding that the recipients would receive Rp 600,000 in cash for three consecutive months.

I think it’s a brilliant performance when you think of Chelsea and Manchester United have spent a fortune. Chelsea have the better squad, with Eden Hazard. Arsenal are nowhere near that. When you look at that Arsenal team… there’s a lot of questions to have answered. You think of Ramsey leaving, of Ozil, the defenders, the midfielders still don’t look right, you’re not convinced about the goalkeeper, the full-backs look like they could change every week and yet, he’s getting that level of performance out them.

I said before, I didn’t think they’d get in the top four because of their away form. I didn’t expect them to win tonight, obviously the circumstances have gone with them tonight. Unai Emery is not soft, that was a great result, but not a great performance. That doesn’t matter. The fact the opposition team were down to ten men and probably should have got something, that’ll be a worry for the other away games. You look at the home games and think they’ll look after themselves for Arsenal. But the away games, you still feel they’ll have to win one of them. Looking at it… ]they should win] one [out] of three, with the team Arsenal have, but you’d still fear for them away from home. Six points for me is a guarantee and that gets them to 72.

Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj is convinced David Moyes will bring trophies to Old Trafford. It has been a tough baptism for Moyes as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor, with a string of disappointing results sending the Red Devils spinning down the Barclays Premier League table. Sunday’s 3-0 win at Aston Villa did suggest a brighter future, although Moyes is mindful his side have gained similarly encouraging results before, only to immediately lose their momentum. However, Januzaj, one of the players upon whom the ‘new’ United must be built, feels Moyes will continue with the club’s trophy-winning traditions. “He will win trophies,” the winger told MUTV. “Don’t forget, it is a new coach. Everything is new. “You have to give it time. “I think he is a good coach. All the players are ready to work hard as well and everything will come.” Januzaj has been a more regular member of the United squad in recent games, having marked his first start with two goals at Sunderland in October which turned the game at the Stadium of Light on its head. He has already been rewarded with a five-year contract extension, allaying fears United could lose another of their promising stars, as happened with French midfielder Paul Pogba who is now doing such good things for Juventus. Yet moving was never on the agenda for Januzaj, who created United’s opening goal at Villa Park when he crashed a header onto the post. “I am happy here,” he said. “When I moved to Manchester I wanted to play with the first team. “Now I want to stay here, play for a long time if I can and be the best player I can be.” For Januzaj that means emulating another winger who left his home for England at a very young age – Cristiano Ronaldo – and became one of the world’s best players. The example of Ronaldo proves what can be achieved. But there are others, much closer to Manchester. And Januzaj feels he is learning from the best in Ryan Giggs, whom, he is convinced, still has much to offer despite hitting his 40th birthday. “Ryan is a legend, totally unbelievable,” said Januzaj. “If I don’t know what to do on the pitch, I just go to Ryan and ask him what I need to improve on. “He helps me a lot – and he can still carry on for a bit yet. “He is 40 but I think he could play for another five years.” Moyes has little time to reflect on United’s success at Villa Park. After a quick trip to Leeds, where he was part of the United delegation that attended the presentation of the lifetime achievement award handed to Sir Alex Ferguson at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards, he was back over the Pennines to plot the downfall of Stoke in Wednesday’s Capital One Cup quarter-final. United will need to take a check on Shinji Kagawa, who has still not fully recovered from having to have his stomach pumped a fortnight ago, and Javier Hernandez, who missed yesterday’s game after taking a kick on the head in training on Saturday.

Press Association Sport understands the Magpies tabled their bid on Sunday afternoon as Ashley attempted to capture the frontman head coach Steve McClaren craves as he attempts to keep the club in the Barclays Premier League. It is further understood that the approach is an up front cash offer with no phased payments or add-ons, and that is a reflection of the club’s determination to land a player they have tracked since last summer. Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has sanctioned a club record offer of £21million for West Brom striker Saido Berahino. Saturday’s game was his first start since October and he has now scored six goals this season after netting 20 times last term. Baggies boss Tony Pulis knows owner Peace will make the final call over any deal. “There’s two more days to wait,” Pulis said after the Peterborough draw. “The chairman will make the decisions on the financial matters and that’s really what it boils down to. “I think football-wise, everyone would want to keep Saido here. When you put Saido in front of goal, he’s a goalscorer. “But we need to get him fit because he’s not fully fit.” The Baggies’ position remains unchanged ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline and they expect to keep the 22-year-old this month. Albion have never expected to receive an acceptable offer for the England Under-21 international in January, with chairman Jeremy Peace unlikely to green light a move this close to the transfer deadline. Tottenham have also been linked with Berahino, as have Stoke, although suggestions that the Potters have matched Newcastle’s bid have been dismissed by sources close to the club. Spurs had four bids rejected in the summer – which led to Berahino threatening to strike – and he has struggled for form since. One of the key factors in Tottenham’s offers being rejected was that payments would have been phased, despite the final fee rising to £23million. Ashley and McClaren now face an anxious wait to see if their move, which would take the Magpies’ total spend this month to £50million, proves decisive before Monday’s deadline. Jonjo Shelvey, Henri Saivet and Andros Townsend have already arrived at St James’ Park since the turn of the year, but with Aleksandar Mitrovic struggling for goals, there has been an acceptance for some time that a striker with a proven track record in the Premier League is needed if Newcastle are to avoid a desperate scramble for survival. Berahino, who scored both goals in Saturday’s 2-2 FA Cup fourth round draw with Peterborough, has fallen out of favour at the Hawthorns in recent months amid persistent speculation over his future.

She also added that a number of teachers and parents also participated in the training which will further enhance the continuation of the programme in the Region.The training was facilitated by National Table Tennis Coach, Linden Johnson. Daniels is hopeful that very shortly competitions involving the various schools within the region will be staged.Recently, the Essequibo Table Tennis Association held a successful competition at the Anna Regina Secondary School’s auditorium where several promising players emerged.
