EU must take a leading role in global migration talks, EP says

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 21 aprile 2018

The European Parliament adopted on Wednesday a resolution backing the process initiated in 2016 during the UN General Assembly and its objectives of “developing a global governance regime for enhancing coordination on international migration, human mobility and large movements of refugees”. MEPs call for durable solutions and the protection of human rights. The non-legislative resolution -approved with 516 votes to 137 with 43 abstentions- notes that human mobility and migration is a growing reality, with approximately 258 million international migrants worldwide, while the number of people living in forced displacement reached 65 million in 2015. MEPs underline that the biggest share of the world’s refugees (up to 84%) are hosted by developing countries, and roughly 10% are in Europe. Protecting the children in migration should be a paramount objective of the global compacts, according to MEPs. “All children, irrespective of their migration or refugee status, are first and foremost children”, says the text, welcoming the commitments included in the drafts regarding the end of child detention, action concerning missing minors, supporting family reunification and ensuring access to the education and health systems. Parliament defends a more equitable sharing of responsibility for hosting and supporting refugees globally, suggesting the adoption of a global mechanism to ensure a fairer distribution. Resettlement is a key element in this regard, say MEPs, who call on the EU countries “to do their part and to step up their commitment”. The resolution also insists on the development of safe and legal avenues for refugees (such as humanitarian corridors, humanitarian visas and private sponsorship) and migrants, taking into consideration labour market needs, to prevent smuggling, abuses and loss of lives. Humanitarian assistance should not be criminalised, notes the Chamber. It calls for greater search and rescue capacities for people in distress, and for the “support provided by NGOs in carrying out rescue operations at sea and on land to be acknowledged”. After emphasizing that, despite challenges, migration is beneficial for both migrants and host communities, in economic and social terms, MEPs advocate a positive narrative on migrations and call for EU and international campaigns to draw attention to evidence and counteract racist and xenophobic tendencies in our societies.

Italy Ranks 33rd in Net Impact on Global Innovation, ITIF Finds in Worldwide Analysis

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 gennaio 2016

washingtonWASHINGTON—Italy ranks 33rd in how its domestic policies support worldwide innovation, according to an analysis released by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), a global technology policy think tank. The findings come in a new report assessing 56 countries—which together comprise close to 90 percent of the world’s economy—on the extent to which, on a per-capita basis, their economic and trade policies contribute to and detract from innovation globally.“Robust innovation is essential for economic growth and progress,” said co-author Stephen Ezell, ITIF’s vice president for global innovation. “As countries increasingly vie for leadership in the innovation economy, they can implement policies that try to benefit only themselves but harm the production of innovation in the rest of the world. Or they can implement ‘win-win’ policies that bolster their own innovation capacity while also generating positive spillovers for the entire global economy. For innovation to flourish around the world, we need a system that is doing much more of the latter.” While previous research has ranked countries based on innovation capabilities or outcomes, this report is the first to assess the impact of countries’ policies on the broader innovation system. The authors examined 14 factors that not only support innovation domestically but have positive spillover effects globally, such as supportive tax systems and investment in R&D and human capital, and another 13 factors that have negative spillover effects, such as forced localization and weak intellectual property protection. Italy’s 33rd-place overall ranking reflected a combination of policies that the report found to be 18th worst in their positive contribution to the global innovation ecosystem and also the 25th least damaging. The report also found a strong correlation between countries’ contributions to global innovation and their levels of domestic innovation success, meaning that doing well domestically on innovation policy can also mean doing well for the world. “While policymakers are primarily focused on the interests of their own citizens, they usually overlook the fact that adopting policies that also happen to be good for the global innovation ecosystem will compound the benefits for their citizens,” said Robert D. Atkinson, ITIF’s president and a co-author of the report. “’Innovation altruism’ really does pay.”he report argues nations should undertake a series of policies to improve their impacts on worldwide innovation:
-First, ITIF urges policymakers, economists, and pundits to treat innovation as important as trade for optimizing global growth.
-Second, the report calls on the global development and trade community to establish a framework that better distinguishes between policies that are beneficial for the world’s innovation ecosystem and those that are detrimental. Moreover, policymakers need to push back more strongly against the misguided, but popular, perspective that developed nation innovation comes at the expense of developing nation economies and that because of that, the world needs a strategy for redistributing innovation, rather than growing it.
-Finally, ITIF argues leading nations should establish a Global Science and Innovation Foundation to fund scientific and engineering research on key global challenges, particularly through collaborative international research.
“The world is significantly under-producing innovation that is needed to tackle global challenges, including boosting productivity, improving health, and protecting the environment,” Atkinson said. “Policymakers need to better understand and more aggressively push back when countries try to advance their own interests at the expense of global innovation. The world’s leaders need to articulate a more robust vision of commonly shared prosperity based on substantial increases in worldwide productivity and more innovative products and services.”

Travel & Tourism leaders welcomes UN Global Sustainable Development Goals

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 29 settembre 2015

Ttourism_travel_world_map_-_magicwall.cahe leaders of the major Global Travel and Tourism associations have welcomed the adoption of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.The Global Travel Association Coalition (GTAC), which represents the leading public and private bodies in the Travel and Tourism sector, attests to the global importance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the role of the Travel & Tourism sectors in their realisation.
Speaking on behalf of GTAC, David Scowsill, President of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), said:“Travel & Tourism is a sector which collectively contributes nearly 10% of the world’s GDP and one in eleven of all jobs on the planet. Over one billion people cross international borders each year, a number expected to reach 1.8 billion by 2030, while at the same time, billions more travel domestically. This is a sector which will play a very significant role in making progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.“Like the Sustainable Development Goals themselves, the Travel & Tourism sector is global and action-oriented. It consists of millions of companies – from the smallest hostel to the largest airline – which together forge an industry which encourages sustainable economic growth, creates jobs, promotes opportunities across society and alleviates poverty.“Travel & Tourism has the potential to contribute directly or indirectly to all of the goals. In particular, as one of the largest and fastest growing economic sectors in the world, Travel & Tourism is well-positioned to foster economic growth and create jobs throughout the world to meet Goal #1 “End poverty in all its forms everywhere”. In particular, tourism has been included as a specific target in Goals #8, #12 and #14 on inclusive and sustainable economic growth, sustainable consumption and production and the sustainable use of oceans and marine resources.
“The Sustainable Development Goals will play a major role in framing our world for the next generation. The Global Travel Association Coalition, representing the major public and private bodies in the Travel & Tourism industry, welcomes their adoption and the part that our sector will play in making them a reality.”

Global Female Leaders 2015

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 15 aprile 2015

berlinoBerlin. “If women are expected to do the same work as men, we must teach them the same things.“ The author of this quotation, the Nobel Prize winner in Literature Saul Bellow, would have been a welcomed guest at the international conference “Global Female Leaders Summit 2015”. According to the motto “Connect. Explore. Co-Create“ female decision makers from all over the world meet at the economic summit mainly targeted at female managers in order to expand their international contacts, build new networks, exchange experiences and also to function as role models for young women. Thus, the conference organised by the Management Circle AG sends a clear message at the time when women are still underrepresented in executive positions throughout the world.
During the two and a half day summit from 20 to 22 April 2015 high-calibre expert panel as well as keynote speakers will discuss topics that are equally relevant to female and male managers.
