Palestine: Program of the Thirteenth Government

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 26 agosto 2009

The document presents the program of the 13th government of the Palestinian National Authority. The program, which sets out our national goals and government policies, centers around the objective of building strong state institutions capable of providing, equitably and effectively, for the needs of our citizens, despite the occupation. We believe that full commitment to this state-building endeavor will advance our highest national priority of ending the occupation, thereby enabling us to live in freedom and dignity in a country of our own. The determination of our people to end the occupation and establish our independent state underpins our confidence in their support for the goals and policies outlined in this document. It is through the support of our people that we will succeed in our mission. Through their commitment to the PLO program- the program of self-determination, the right of return and the establishment of an independent state- combined with the sense of accomplishment and self-empowerment that has started to emerge as a direct consequence of the success of the national stabilization effort over the past two years, we are confident that the Palestinian people will fulfill their national aspirations, provided, of course, that we also succeed in restoring the unity of our homeland and institutions.  We look forward to continued regional and international support to establish Palestine as an independent, democratic, progressive, and modern Arab state, with full sovereignty over its territory in the West Bank and Gaza, on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem  as its capital. Palestine will be a peace-loving state that rejects violence, commits to co-existence with its neighbors, and builds bridges of cooperation with the international community. It will be a symbol of peace, tolerance and prosperity in this troubled area of the world. By embodying all of these values, Palestine will be a source of pride to all of its citizens, and an anchor for stability in this region. Salam Fayyad Prime Minister (abstract)

Rail industry benefits

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 13 agosto 2009

Zeist, the Netherlands, The autonomisation of the railway industry, the related enhanced commercialisation and the separation of infrastructure and operations ask for new criteria in optimal life cycle management. Good management of the total life cycle costs of rail assets is a key aspect in this. Challenges such as calculations in which changing circumstances and future expenses need to be taken into account, still need to be overcome. This greatly influences the determination of prices in for example tendering procedures of rolling stock. Rules, interoperability and feasibility of technological developments are also among the issues at stake. However, optimal life cycle management offers remarkable opportunities and provides competitive advantages. This will all be discussed on 8 December 2009 during the international Life Cycle Management conference. The conference will take place in Congress centre Amstelveen in the Netherlands and is being organised by Europoint Rail Technology Conferences & Exhibitions.The Life Cycle Management conference starts with a benchmarking forum, after which the need and necessity for cross border regulations will be illustrated from different perspectives. The conference programme includes contributions from politics, science and industry. In the afternoon the following issues will be discussed via interactive seminars:- Rail concessions and asset/life cycle management: winning contracts- Management accounting & LCM- The interaction between infrastructure and rolling stock: symbiosis or parasitism?-  The balance between technology and cost efficiency The organisers expect these issues to lead to a successful interaction between speakers and delegates. The exchange of viewpoints will result in innovative solutions and tangible actions that will lead to a cost effective and manageable integral method of Life Cycle Management in the rail industry.
