Tax havens ‘serve no useful economic purpose’: 300 economists tell world leaders

May 9th, 2016 by Posted in Quản trị tốt/ Good Governance | No Comments »

Experts including Thomas Piketty, Jeff Sachs, Nora Lustig and Angus Deaton call for more tax transparency

More than 300 leading economists from 30 countries have today written to world leaders warning that there is no economic justification for allowing tax havens to continue, and urging them to bring an end to offshore financial secrecy. The letter comes ahead of the UK Government’s summit on offshore corruption in London on Thursday, which politicians from 40 countries as well as World Bank and IMF representatives are expected to attend.

Signatories include Thomas Piketty, author of best-selling ‘Capital in the Twenty-First Century’; Angus Deaton, the current Nobel Prize-winner for Economics and Nora Lustig, professor of Latin American Economics at Tulane University, as well as influential experts with experience of advising governments and policymakers, such as Jeff Sachs, director of Columbia University’s Earth Institute and an adviser to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, and Olivier Blanchard, former IMF chief economist.

Professors from the world’s top universities such as Harvard, Oxford and the Sorbonne and from countries as diverse as Finland and Cameroon have united to warn global leaders that tax havens undermine countries’ ability to collect taxes, with poor countries proportionally the biggest losers. Despite having different views on desirable levels of taxation, they all agree that “territories allowing assets to be hidden in shell companies or which encourage profits to be booked by companies that do no business there are distorting the working of the global economy.”

NEW ZEALAND EMBASSY ANNOUNCES USD$50,000 OF HUMANITARIAN AID TO BEN TRE

April 28th, 2016 by Posted in Cứu trợ/ Humanitarian | No Comments »

Ha Noi, 28 April 2016 – Today the New Zealand Embassy announced humanitarian aid, totalling US$50,000, to communities in Ben Tre Province affected by drought and saltwater intrusion.

The assistance will be provided through an ongoing US$4.0 million New Zealand government funded project in the province, Building resilience to disaster and climate risks of men and women in Ben Tre Province, implemented by Oxfam in Vietnam. The emergency relief responds to urgent needs of children, women, and men in 15 most affected communes in Binh Dai, Ba Tri, and Thanh Phu districts.

Up to 6,000 cow and goat farmers in these three districts will receive cash grants, to buy food and water supplies for their animals, which they are dependent on for their livelihoods.

New Zealand Ambassador to Vietnam, H.E Haike Manning, said: “We recognise the serious impact that the drought and saltwater intrusion is having on communities in southern and central provinces of Viet Nam.  This assistance is a modest, but practical contribution to the communities we are already working with through our existing project, and is an example of New Zealand’s ongoing commitment to supporting vulnerable communities across Vietnam.”

“New Zealand will continue sharing its experience and working closely with our partners, such as Oxfam, to assist local communities to deal with drought and saltwater intrusion and the effects of climate change in the Mekong Delta region.”

In addition, Oxfam is working in collaboration with the local government in Ben Tre Province to provide safe drinking water to more than 6,000 women and men.

“The drought and saltwater intrusion has made hundreds of thousands of families more serious, while most of them are already living under poverty line”, said Oxfam Country Director Babeth Lefur, “Oxfam commits to implement this emergency response at the highest responsibility and efficiency”.

About Ben Tre’s drought and saltwater intrusion:

Nine out of thirteen Mekong Delta provinces are facing one of the worst droughts the region has seen in ninety years. Trigged by El Nino, the drought is having significant impact by limiting agricultural production, straining livelihoods, and exacerbating food insecurity among poor and vulnerable communities in the region. 164 communes in Ben Tre province have been in the historical effected list. Ben Tre was among the first provinces declaring drought and saltwater intrusion disaster status and requesting support from the central government.

 

SỨ QUÁN NIU DI-LÂN CÔNG BỐ KHOẢN CỨU TRỢ KHẨN CẤP TRỊ GIÁ 50 NGÀN ĐÔ LA MỸ CHO BẾN TRE

Hà nội, ngày 28 tháng 4, 2016 – Hôm nay Sứ quán Niu Di-lân công bố khoản cứu trợ khẩn cấp trị giá 50 ngàn đô la Mỹ cho một số vùng thuộc tỉnh Bến Tre đang bị ảnh hưởng bởi hạn hán và xâm nhập mặn.

Khoản hỗ trợ được cung cấp thông qua dự án “Xây dựng khả năng ứng phó, phục hồi và thích nghi với rủi ro thảm họa và khí hậu cho phụ nữ và nam giới tại tỉnh Bến Tre, Việt Nam”, trị giá 4 triệu USD của chính phủ Niu Di-lân, do tổ chức Oxfam tại Việt Nam đang triển khai. Việc cứu trợ khẩn cấp nhằm đáp ứng nhu cầu cấp bách của trẻ em, phụ nữ và nam giới ở 15 xã chịu ảnh hưởng nghiêm trọng nhất tại các huyện Bình Đại, Ba Tri và Thạnh Phú.

Hơn 6000 hộ nông dân nuôi bò và dê tại 3 huyện trên sẽ nhận được một khoản tiền để mua thức ăn và nước phục vụ cho hoạt động sản xuất và chăn nuôi gia súc, là nguồn sinh kế của họ.

Đại sứ Niu Di-Lân tại Việt Nam, ngài H.E Haike Manning, cho biết: “Chúng tôi nhận thấy những tác động nghiêm trọng mà hạn hán và xâm nhập mặn đang diễn ra tại cộng đồng các tỉnh phía Nam và miền Trung Việt Nam. Sự trợ giúp này là một đóng góp khiêm tốn nhưng thiết thực cho các cộng đồng nơi chúng tôi đang triển khai dự án, và là một bằng chứng về cam kết lâu dài của Niu Di-Lân nhằm hỗ trợ các cộng đồng dễ bị tổn thương trên khắp Việt Nam”.

“Niu Di-Lân sẽ tiếp tục chia sẻ kinh nghiệm, và đồng thời phối hợp chặt chẽ với các đối tác của chúng tôi, như tổ chức Oxfam, để hỗ trợ các cộng đồng ứng phó với hạn hán, xâm nhập mặn và các tác động của biến đổi khí hậu tại khu vực đồng bằng sông Cửu Long.”

Bên cạnh đó, tổ chức Oxfam đang làm việc phối hợp với chính quyền địa phương tại tỉnh Bến Tre để cung cấp nước uống sạch cho hơn 6.000 phụ nữ và nam giới.

“Hạn hán và xâm nhập mặn đã làm cho cuộc sống của hàng trăm ngàn gia đình nghiêm trọng hơn, trong khi phần lớn họ đã đang sống dưới mức nghèo”, Giám đốc Quốc gia của Oxfam tại Việt Nam – bà Babeth Lefur cho biết, “Oxfam cam kết thực hiện ứng phó khẩn cấp này với hiệu quả và trách nhiệm cao nhất”.
