Maroc Telecom Awarded the IIA Certification for Internal Audits Activities

Rabat – Maroc Telecom received the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) certification for its internal auditing activities, awarded by the French Institute of Internal Audit and Control (IFACI), in accordance with the Professional Internal Audit Framework (RPAI) based on International Standards on Internal Auditing.Maroc Telecom is thus the first company listed on the Casablanca Stock Exchange to obtain this certification, which attests that its internal audit activities meet strict criteria of independence and competence and contribute strongly to the continuous improvement of business processes.The IFACI certification ensures the telecommunications giant’s enforcement and compliance of the 25 requirements of the 2015 Internal Audit Professional Repository classified according to three levels: the resources available to Maroc Telecom’s Internal Audit (independence, objectivity, charter, ethics), the services it implements (risk-based audit plan, corporate governance, methodology and audit work) and the supervision and control of the audit (supervision, insurance program ND quality improvement). “This international recognition is a further guarantee of the professionalism of Maroc Telecom and reflects its stated willingness to align its audit and control activities with international standards,” the company said in a statement. read more

Global interest in Western Potashowned Milestone

first_imgIn an article published on focussing on potash industry developments in the wake of continuing high prices and record food demand, Western Potash, with arguably the world’s most advanced ‘independent’ potash project, is highlighted as a company getting a lot of attention from potential state-funded buyers. The company has just published a better-than-expected pre-feasibility study for its Milestone project in Saskatchewan, which some analysts believe make it very attractive to the world’s potash-hungry emerging super-powers. China, India and Brazil were cited as countries being very anxious to lock-in ownership of long-term overseas potash supplies.Weighing in Western Potash’s favour is the fact that Milestone boasts a projected annual production of up to 2.8 Mt of potash and it has an anticipated minimum 40-year mine life. Another big plus is that the pricing of this future output isn’t going to be set by Canpotex, the cartel that controls all of Saskatchewan’s existing potash sales. The project’s “independent” status is of significant strategic value to any end-user, such as a foreign fertiliser company, that buys into the 945 Mt resource, according to analysts. China would prefer not to have to buy much of its potash from Canpotex due to high pricing and Max Vichniakov, a Toronto-based analyst for the investment bank Octagon Capital, believes that India would also likely find it far more cost effective to deal with Western Potash. The Milestone property is adjacent to other potash projects owned by the mining giants BHP Billiton, Vale and Rio Tinto/JSC Acron and is the last junior-owned project that has not been bought out. However, John Costigan, a spokesperson for Western Potash, was quoted in the article and played down any suggestions that either a takeover or a joint venture deal is imminent. “Building further value into the Milestone Project is our focus right now, rather than completing any kind of industry transaction. At the same time, we want to continue to significantly de-risk the project by undertaking a full feasibility study,” he said.last_img read more

Mobile operators fail to implement directive on VAT charges for charity texts

first_imgTHE CEO OF children’s charity, the Jack and Jill Foundation, Jonathan Irwin, has urged the government take action to address the VAT charges on charity related text messages as mobile operators have failed to implement the change in law two years ago.In 2011, Revenue announced that all charity related texts would not longer be liable for VAT. Last year, O’Cúiv raised the issue in the Dáil proposing that a special exchequer grant be paid to compensate impacted charities, as it had still not been implemented by mobile operators and charities were not receiving the money they were owed.One year on, the situation remains the same and Irwin said mobile phone operators have told the charity that they “can’t make special VAT allowances” as they would have to change their system.“The bottom line is that, as a result of this apathy, laziness, unwillingness to upgrade their system whatever you want to call it, we’re losing valuable income, as are some other well deserving Irish charities, with no mechanism to claim back the over-charged VAT,” he said.Speaking to, Fianna Fáil’s Eamon O’Cúiv said the onus is on “both Revenue and the government to sort this out”.“The law is the law and it’s up to the phone operators to do something abut it as well, if there was a new PRSI system they’d have to make it work so why should this be any different?” he said.“In the meantime, all we have to do is have the charities get their auditors to say how much money they recieved by text and make a submission to Revenue to get a refund – it’s not rocket science.”“What’s happening is illegal because the VAT man is getting money that should be going to charities,” he added. “It’s an absolute disgrace and nothing much is being done about it.”Irwin said it would be a “lovely Easter present for the charity sector” if the mobile operators would “sort their internal systems” so that VAT is no longer charged on text donations.Three mobile phone operators and The Department of Finance had not returned requests for comment on the issue at the time of publication.Read: €300k owed to Jack & Jill Foundation after fundraising company liquidated>last_img read more

NASA SpaceX and Boeings ISS program is as American as moon pie

Here’s what happens. 1 What life is like on the International Space Station (pictures) Share your voicecenter_img It almost sounds like the start of a joke: NASA walks into a bar with one of the oldest aerospace companies and a guy who smoked pot with Joe Rogan…But while they may sound like unlikely bedfellows,  NASA has formed partnerships with Boeing and SpaceX in a bid to get into space faster and to once again launch astronauts from US soil. It’s known as the Commercial Crew Program, and it’s been set up to help NASA get astronauts to the International Space Station (without spending too many taxpayer dollars).In this week’s episode of Watch This Space, we take a look at what these two giants of American industry bring to the table and what NASA has to gain from outsourcing its space program. Let’s break it down. NASA taps SpaceX, Boeing to bring space travel back under… What is the Commercial Crew Program?The CCP is what’s known as a public-private partnership — it’s a common way for government agencies to use expertise in private industry to get their projects completed on time and on budget. In 2014, NASA selected Boeing and SpaceX, two of the biggest names in the American aerospace industry, to help it get astronauts into space and onto the International Space Station.The idea is that Boeing and SpaceX will help NASA develop and operate the launch systems and spacecraft to get humans into low-Earth orbit and help it fulfill its obligations to help staff the ISS. Since NASA’s shuttle program wrapped in 2011, the US has been relying on other countries to get its astronauts into space, launching in the Russian-made Soyuz spacecraft as far away as in Kazakhstan. NASA wants to bring those launches back home.   NASA’s Commercial Crew Astronauts with the Boeing CST-100 and SpaceX Dragon mockups in 2018. Robert Markowitz/NASA/Johnson Space Center Why Boeing and SpaceX?While they both focus on the sky, these companies couldn’t be more different. Boeing has been around for more than 100 years and has worked with NASA pretty since its formation in the ’60s, including working on the Apollo program. SpaceX, by contrast, has been around for less than two decades, with ambitious goals to get humans to Mars, make spaceflight more affordable and even take tourists to the moon. But both companies are at the cutting edge of aerospace technology and have in-house expertise in developing, manufacturing and launching spacecraft. It’s this skillset that NASA wants to use to help it get into space faster without having the kind of cost blowouts that caused problems in the past.spacexcrewThe SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule ahead of a test flight that was later delayed.  SpaceX How will they get there?To get astronauts into space, Boeing has developed the Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 Starliner. According to Boeing, the Starliner can fit up to seven passengers, or up to four crew for missions to the ISS, alongside research cargo. It’s a reusable aircraft that can be used up to 10 times. It can land on solid ground rather than landing in the ocean (which is a first for an American-made spacecraft). And there are backup controls inside for the pilot. SpaceX, on the other hand, is using its Dragon spacecraft. SpaceX has been using the Dragon to run cargo to the ISS since 2012. (It made history as the first commercial spacecraft to visit the space station.) But the Dragon is also configurable to carry crew in its capsule section, with onboard controls, an Environmental Control and Life Support System and an emergency escape system that carries astronauts to safety with “about the same G-forces as a ride at Disneyland.” Because this is SpaceX of course. What’s the timeline? boeing-starliner-gallery-4Enlarge ImageOne of Boeing’s Starliner team members works on the spacecraft. Boeing We can expect NASA astronauts to be heading to the ISS this year, but the CCP hasn’t been without its problems. NASA has named its two crews for the Boeing and SpaceX spacecraft, though there were last-minute changes for the Boeing craft due to medical issues. SpaceX has also been forced to delay its test flights a number of times. But according to the most recently updated schedule and if all goes as planned, both SpaceX and Boeing should complete test flights by March and abort tests (to ensure systems are safe if the launch needs to be aborted on the pad or mid-ascent) before running crewed flights mid-year. The estimate is June for SpaceX and August for Boeing. After that, both companies will be certified to launch humans into low-Earth orbit and send crew members to the International Space Station. To learn more about NASA’s partnerships, check out the latest episode of Watch This Space.  23 Photos 6:19 Elon Musk Boeing NASA Space SpaceXlast_img read more

Google recreates Apollo 11 cockpit in AR for 50th anniversary

Among the unsung Apollo heroes profiled are Rita Rapp, who developed the lunar journey’s meal plan, and Margaret Hamilton, who led development of the on-board flight software for the missions and is credited with coining the term “software engineering.”Google has also added 40 new exhibits on Apollo 11 to its Arts & Culture section, including CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite’s reflections on humankind’s first steps on the moon, as well as a lesson on how to put on a space suit. (Disclosure: CBS News is owned by CNET parent CBS.)On July 15, on the eve of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s launch to the moon, Google plans to add several new tours and quizzes to Google Earth. This story is part of To the Moon, a series exploring humanity’s first journey to the lunar surface and our future living and working on the moon. “Using augmented reality, you can then bring the command module into your space — your bedroom, kitchen or wherever you are — to get a better sense of its size,” Google said. Another AR experience planned for later this month will offer a close-up look at Armstrong’s spacesuit.Along with the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Google aims to use augmented reality, video, photos and stories to create an immersive experience that gives users a feeling of what the journey to the moon was like.

For Google it represents another first, as it’ll be the initial opportunity for users to experience cultural artifacts through AR in Google Search.The new feature, announced in May, displays 3D object links in Search, which brings up three-dimensional models that can then be dropped into the real world at proper scale in AR. To get your command module ready, search for “Apollo 11” on any AR-compatible Android or iOS device, and you’ll get the option to see the module in 3D, allowing you to zoom in and out and explore it from all angles.center_img Post a comment 35 Photos To the Moon 0 Tags Sci-Tech Culture NASA Space Googlelast_img read more

NASA astronaut accused of space crime rebuts allegations

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice Sci-Tech 5 McClain was scheduled to perform the first all-female spacewalk in March with fellow astronaut Christina Koch, but the walk was scrubbed days before the historic EVA, due to a spacesuit sizing issue. NASA clarified at the time that McClain felt comfortable in a medium-size suit, but only one could be made available by the time of the planned walk. NASA said it would be faster and safer to change the walker, rather than the suit.A spokeswoman for NASA told the Times the last-minute change was not influenced by the allegations made against McClain.NASA didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Our future on the moon: What will the moon look like… Anne McClain during a spacesuit check prior to launching to the ISS. Sergei Savostyanov/Getty NASA astronaut Anne McClain, who spent 203 days in space aboard the International Space Station earlier this year, has been accused of identity theft and improperly accessing the private financial records of her estranged spouse, according to a report by The New York Times. McClain, a lieutenant colonel in the US Army, served as the flight engineer for Expedition 58/59 to the ISS and was set to be part of the first all-female spacewalk. It was during her time aboard the station that she allegedly accessed the bank account of Summer Worden.McClain and Worden had been married since 2014. Worden filed for divorce in 2018, months before McClain was set to launch on a six-month mission to the space station. McClain, through her lawyer, acknowledged she did access the bank account from the space station using a password that she had used previously.Her lawyer told the Times that “she strenuously denies that she did anything improper.” The access was used to ensure care for Worden’s son, who the couple had been raising together. Worden filed a complaint alleging identity theft with both the Federal Trade Commission and NASA’s Office of Inspector General. NASA’s wildest rides: Extreme vehicles for Earth and beyond Comments The Space Station Agreement, signed by the US and 14 other governments involved in the ISS, outlines the legal framework governing activities on the station. Each nation is legally responsible for their elements, equipment and personnel and for applying their own national laws in criminal matters.The accusations are being investigated by the inspector general’s office. McClain took to Twitter on Aug. 24 to rebut the claims, stating there’s “unequivocally no truth” to them and that she has “total confidence” in the inspector general’s investigation. There’s unequivocally no truth to these claims. We’ve been going through a painful, personal separation that’s now unfortunately in the media. I appreciate the outpouring of support and will reserve comment until after the investigation.

Brink was reportedly riding his snowmachine around the villages of Kasigluk and Nunapitchuk, asking women for directions. When a woman agreed to help him and got on his snowmachine, Brink allegedly took the victim to the tundra and attempt to sexually assault her, according to Alaska State Trooper Nicholas Hayes, with the Violent Offenders Unit.“There was a lot of people that I spoke to, but everybody I spoke to said that they thought that he was lying and using some kind of ruse to get them on the snowmachine,” Hayes said.Hayes traveled the villages earlier this month to investigate. While there, two women from the villages reported they were victims.“Just as of yesterday, another survivor came forward and said she was assaulted by Nicholas,” Hays said. “As of right now, we have five people that have come forward detailing some kind of misconduct that was involved with Nicholas.”Hayes says the assaults reportedly happened as far as back as this past summer.Authorities believe there may be more victims out there and encourage any survivors to contact authorities.last_img read more

Search for remains of Tuluksak resident halted as Kuskokwim ice continues to

(Photo courtesy of Earl Samuelson)Bethel Search and Rescue Chief Mike Riley says recovery efforts for Lamont just below Tuluksak have been suspended sue to deteriorating river conditions at the search site.“They have kinda suspended their search for Mr. Lamont maybe a week or so until conditions get better. They have pulled their equipment from there because of safety reasons, getting there. The biggest factor there, the safety part for the searchers,” Riley said.Alaska State Troopers say three people had broken through the Kuskokwim River ice near Tuluksak on the 10th. A witness assisted two of the passengers, but Lamont did not make it out. Responders presumed he had drowned and searchers have continued recovery attempts since April 11th. BSAR sent an underwater camera and other equipment for the recovery efforts. Alaska State Troopers did not assist in the recovery efforts for safety reasons.Search and Rescue Vice President Fritz Charles conducted an aerial survey of the Kuskokwim and says the ice shifted in some parts of the river.“There should be no traveling whatsoever at this point. There’s a lot of open holes in the upper and lower end of Straight Slough and the ice did shift within the half hour that we were flying at the upper end of Straight Slough. So there should not be any snowmachine or any kind of vehicle traffic on the river,” Charles said.Fritz says he expects a ‘thermal’ or ‘mush out’ for this years breakup where the lower river ice washed out first, saying the water upriver is lower than it used to be. In a story by Alaska Dispatch, Alaska River Forecast Center Senior hydrologist Crane Johnson says a similar breakup is expected this year for the Kuskokwim.Alaska State Trooper pilot Arthur Abalama says even if the ice clears up quickly people downriver should expect more ice to come from upriver.“Looks like it’s going to open up down here before it does upriver, and if the ice clears enough to where anybody can boat, just be aware there is still a lot of ice to come down from upriver,” Abalama said.Meteorologists expect the area temperatures over the weekend to stay above freezing.last_img read more

AL govt win tempered by challenges in banking income inequity

first_img.A number of economic zones, with necessary land and infrastructure, are in the pipeline this year, addressing the recent stagnation in private investment.The new government of the Awami League expects economic growth to reach a magical 8 per cent mark if doing business could be made easier.It faces the challenge of completing two big infrastructure projects – the Padma Bridge and Metro Rail – by this year to record a big score.However, analysts say, the most difficult challenge for the government this year could be implementing of new VAT law from 1 July after withholding the process in 2017 for two years.Also burdened with more than Tk 1 trillion default loans, the banking sector is yet to overcome the hangover of a number of major scams that took place over the past decade. The sector is plagued with nepotism and corruption and the government needs to imbibe it with discipline and regain public confidence in it.Aother key challenge is the necessity to generate employment for millions of youth who are entering the job market every year and who have offered Bangladesh the demographic dividend.Lead economist of the World Bank Dhaka office Zahid Hussain foresees a ‘transformational economy,’ provided investment increases, business climate improves and discipline is restored in the banking sector.“Completion of economic zones may not be enough. One-stop services for the investment must be ensured and laws relating to customs, operation of companies, and skills development are amended and issues affecting the overall environment for doing business are addressed,” he said.The economist insisted that the culprits – both lending authorities and loan recipients – should be brought to book to restore discipline in the banking sector.The rate of private investment has been hovering around 21-22 per cent for quite a number of years, according to official statistics.Of the 100 economic zones the government has planned to set up by 2030, only four may be completed this year. It is expected that plots will be ready for allotment during the period.Despite economic growth which, planning minister AHM Mustafa Kamal forecasts, may exceed 8 per cent this year, there are concerns over widening disparity.One in four persons in the country is still extremely poor and one in every eight lives below the lower threshold of poverty. Economists believe Bangladesh is close to the countries of high income inequality.President of apex trade body Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) Shafiul Islam Mahiuddin said the new government would be facing the burden of high expectations.“Ensuring the ease of doing business, timely completion of projects with proper accountability, freeing the tax regime from harrassment, and bringing down the rate of interest to 9 per cent will be appreciated,” he added.* This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Khawaza Main Uddinlast_img read more

Harris County Officials Report Flood Warning Is Still In Effect For Parts

Brickhouse, 39.Carper denied suggestions that the victims were targeted.“Due to the very short timeline of violence, it’s hard to imagine that there was much discrimination in the shooting,” he said. “It happened in a very short amount of time.”Carper offered no other details about the shooter; however, a LinkedIn profile belonging to someone of the same name and who is listed as living in Bellbrook says he attends Sinclair Community College and works at Chipotle Mexican Grill in Centerville, Ohio.The college’s president, Steven Johnson, released a statement confirming that Betts was previously enrolled as a student. Johnson called the shooting a “senseless, murderous attack.”The massacre followed an even bloodier attack in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday in which a lone gunman killed 20 people and injured 26 at a busy Walmart.On Sunday, police in Dayton said the shooter there opened fire on pedestrians as he walked down a busy street at about 1 a.m. Police killed the suspect less than a minute after the shooting began.Hours later, Dayton police and FBI officials had begun a search of the suspect’s home. Bellbrook Police Chief Doug Doherty said the FBI cleared the house and removed vehicles from the residence.He said three to four people live in the home, which he described as “a family home.” Becoming emotional at times, Doherty added that authorities are trying to give the suspect’s family respect and peace.Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley told reporters Sunday morning, “As a mayor, this is a day that we all dread happening.”“It is a terrible day for Dayton, but I am so grateful for Dayton police’s fast action,” she said, adding that hundreds of people could have been killed based on the size of crowds in the area on a Saturday night.Twenty-seven people are in multiple hospitals across the city, some with life-threatening injuries, she said.Police were already on patrol in the area full of nightclubs, known as the Oregon District, and stopped the shooter in less than one minute, the mayor said.Details about the condition of some of the victims emerged at a news conference Sunday morning. Dr. Greg Semon of Miami Valley Hospital said at least one person is in critical condition and four others are being treated by trauma specialists and other specialists.He added, “They are obviously doing everything they can to maximize their outcomes.”Sixteen of the victims received by the hospital were treated for gunshot wounds. Others arrived with wounds and injuries caused by “an effort to escape the shooter,” Semon said.An official from Kettering Health Network said victims were taken to three of its hospitals. Four people are in serious condition.Earlier on, Carper of the Dayton Police Department had said Dayton is “a very safe area.” “This is extremely unusual obviously for any community, let alone Dayton. And in our Oregon District, this is unheard of and very sad. It’s a very tragic evening,” he told reporters shortly after 4 a.m. Sunday.Police say the shooting started at 1 a.m. outside. In what Carper called a “very short timeline of violence,” the shooter used what police called a “long gun.” Whaley later said the shooter wore body armor and used a .223-caliber weapon with a high-capacity magazine and had additional magazines.Carper said police were investigating the possibility of more shooters being involved, but “it looks like” only one shooter was responsible.“We understand that the public wants to know who this person is. We are working very hard to give the public an answer as to what the motivation might have been for this attack,” he said.No police officers were injured.The Dayton police have trained for years for active-shooting situations, Carper said. Twenty-one medic units responded to the scene, and the FBI is on the scene to assist in the investigation.This is a developing story. Some things that get reported by the media will later turn out to be wrong. We will focus on reports from police officials and other authorities, credible news outlets and reporters who are at the scene. We will update as the situation develops.Copyright 2019 NPR.

ExSalvadoran colonel gets US prison sentence

first_img Check your body, save your life U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock meted out the penalty after a three-day sentencing hearing that included testimony implicating Montano in human rights abuses in El Salvador.The 70-year-old Montano, who denies such abuses, was once his country’s vice minister of public security. He had been living in a Boston suburb for about a decade before his 2011 arrest, making $14 an hour in a candy factory.Montano admitted to lying on immigration forms, pleading guilty to three counts of immigration fraud and three counts of perjury. He also agreed not to contest deportation proceedings to return him to El Salvador after his prison term.In 1993, a United Nations commission named Montano as a member of El Salvador’s military high command who took part in a meeting to plot the slaying of a priest suspected of supporting rebels during the country’s civil war.That meeting allegedly led to the 1989 slayings of six priests, their housekeeper, and her teenage daughter at a Jesuit university in El Salvador’s capital city.Montano previously has denied involvement in the priest killings. He was among 20 people Spanish authorities indicted in 2011 in connection with the massacre. New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like A report by Karl alleged troops under Montano’s command carried out dozens of killings and tortured hundreds, accusations that retired El Salvador military general Mauricio Ernesto Vargas denied in testimony for the defense.The judge ordered Montano to report to prison on Oct. 11.“If under these circumstances, you disappear, you’ll be found,” Woodlock told him.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Sponsored Stories BOSTON (AP) – Human rights advocates called it a step toward justice Tuesday when a federal judge in Boston sentenced a Salvadoran ex-colonel to prison on separate charges as Spain attempts to prosecute him for war crimes during his country’s civil conflict.Inocente Orlando Montano will serve 21 months in a federal prison for immigration crimes, followed by a year of supervised release if U.S. government officials don’t extradite him to Spain before then to stand trial for his alleged role in priest slayings known as the Jesuit massacre. Top Stories center_img On Tuesday, he called it “a very, very terrible case,” and said he was sorry about the death of the priests, while addressing the judge with the help of a Spanish language interpreter.“Those individuals, in spite of their liberal mentality, were helping a lot in the peace process,” Montano said.He also said that the U.N. commission charged him and others with crimes based on complaints that were invented by people who were against the government.The defendant said he had commanded very prestigious units, helping build playgrounds and roads as he kept up with not only military obligations, but “human obligations.” He also spoke of his service as a military attache to Mexico, saying Mexican officials wouldn’t have wanted him there if he was a criminal.While leaving court, Montano said through a translator that he was satisfied with the sentence and hadn’t decided if he would appeal.Attorney Carolyn Patty Blum from the Center for Justice and Accountability, which is involved in seeking Montano’s prosecution in Spain, said after the sentencing that it was “a huge step forward to be incarcerating him for anything.”U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz said in a prepared statement that Montano’s sentence “sends a strong message that those alleged to have engaged in human rights abuses overseas should not expect to hide in the United States.” Comments   Share   Men’s health affects baby’s health too Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Prosecutors had asked for a prison sentence of more than four years, saying Montano immigrated to the U.S. in part to avoid potential prosecution for the Jesuit massacre.Defense attorney Oscar Cruz Jr. had asked for probation, saying Montano had no fear of prosecution in El Salvador because of an amnesty law. Cruz said after court that he was pleased by Tuesday’s outcome.The judge said before announcing Montano’s penalty that the immigration case wasn’t a “springboard” for deciding if the defendant was guilty of human rights violations, even if evidence was significant.“This much seems clear, that there were human rights violations by troops under Mr. Montano’s command and he took no action,” Woodlock said.The judge had asked assistant U.S. attorney John Capin on Monday about the status of Spain’s request to extradite Montano. Woodlock spoke privately with Capin on Tuesday, then returned to the bench and said the U.S. government hadn’t taken formal action on the request.Stanford University professor Terry Lynn Karl, an expert in Latin American politics who testified for the government, said she was pleased with Montano’s sentence because it would give the U.S. time to extradite him to Spain.last_img read more

West Bengal Tourism to conduct 7city roadshow in September

first_imgWest Bengal Tourism will conduct a 7-city B2B roadshow, starting with Indore and Nagpur on September 22 and 24, respectively. Thereafter, the roadshow will take place in New Delhi, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, and Surat throughout this month.Surajit Bose, WBCS (Exe), Joint Director, West Bengal Tourism, said that the state tourism board aims to familiarise the tour operators in the said cities with the new and unique offerings of West Bengal Tourism.Also, a new advertisement campaign is being designed by Ogilvy & Mather (O&M), which will be out by November this year, along with a television commercial starring the brand ambassador, Shah Rukh Khan, who will be seen welcoming travellers to West Bengal.“We are emphasising on the promotions part. Given the diverse tourism products and rich culture in the state, not much has been promoted among discerning travellers. We are now focusing on experiential tourism with the change in our tagline from ‘Beautiful Bengal’ to ‘Experience Bengal – Sweetest Part of India’. Based on the same, O&M is developing new creative for print, television, website, outdoor, radio, and YouTube, in sync with the new logo. The same is in process and would be out by November. We plan to air it on national television for at least three months so as to create a recall value,” said Bose. New destinations in the Dooars and Sundarbans are also being developed on PPP mode, which will come up in few years, he added.Bose also informed that the dream tourism projects of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, such as Jharkhali in Sundarbans, are in process. The bid has been floated for the Gajoldoba project in North Bengal, while Sabuj Dwip in Hooghly will be developed by a private player in the next two years, he added. Also, cottages are being built at Jhargram Rajbari in Jangal Mahal, which will be ready in the next two months, Bose said.About tourist arrivals to the state, Bose stated, “We are already witnessing good traffic from the key source markets of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Punjab, Haryana, and Delhi-NCR, but wish to increase them. Globally, footfalls from China, Sri Lanka, and South East Asian nations have increased due to the proximity and options for air travel. Foreign language guides are also being trained to leverage these markets further.”last_img read more
