Aliko Dangote at UN General Assembly in New York: “Africa will become the food basket of the world” http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/aliko-dangote-at-un-general-assembly-in-new-york-africa-will-become-the-food-basket-of-the-world http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/aliko-dangote-at-un-general-assembly-in-new-york-africa-will-become-the-food-basket-of-the-world Aliko Dangote at UN General Assembly in New York: “Africa will become the food basket of the world”

Aliko Dangote at UN General Assembly in New York: “Africa will become the food basket of the world” ; "Five of the twelve million jobs needed in Africa soon must be created in Nigeria"; “We should pray that oil prices remain low”


NEW YORK, United States of America, September 20, 2017/ -- Nigerian business leader Aliko Dangote told investors "Agriculture, agriculture, agriculture. Africa will become the food basket of the world."

In a packed room at the headquarters of global law firm Shearman and Sterling LLC  high level business leaders and international diplomats invited by the Corporate Council for Africa to hear Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote, and Rwandan president Paul Kagame openly converse on Africa's opportunities and challenges.

Both leaders underscored the ongoing movement to diversify African economies. In the case of  Nigeria, Africa's largest economy, Dangote stated "we should pray that oil prices remain low. This helps wean us off the dependency on revenues from petroleum. We must take oil to be the icing on the cake. We already have the cake," he added.{loadposition myposition}

In addition to agriculture Dangote cited Nigeria's vast mineral resources and gas as well and the need to manufacture more goods locally for domestic consumption. Both he and President Kagame cited continued need for heavy investments in education and connected the need for young people to be well trained for the jobs of tomorrow.

Dangote predicted that "five of the twelve million jobs needed in Africa soon must be created in Nigeria."

Dangote's fortune which stems from cement, sugar, and other household commodities has expanded into fertilizer and other processed high-value goods. "Technology of course helps us a lot and our factories are state of the art with the use of robotics but we shouldn't be overly tech oriented to create wealth," he told investors.

Mr. Dangote who is often cited as one of the most inspiring business leaders in the world today and a model for young entrepreneurs offered advice to Americans who tend to rely on outdated news and wrong perceptions of Africa, "Don't be lazy. Go there and find the real story for yourself. Things have changed."

Dangote noted the Rwanda success story where he has business interests as an example of positive change, good governance and leadership, and where corruption has been cured. He cited a personal experience of offering a $100 US tip for services at the Kigali Airport to staff who refused to take money for work they were paid to do. President Kagame was praised for delivering the environment for growth he promised. "There is nothing African about corruption," the Rwandan president added.

The session was moderated by Rosa Whitaker, former US Trade Representative and author of the AGOA (African Growth Opportunity Act), whose business consultancy is credited for helping both African governments and US companies develop commerce.

Camair-co expands flight network to Gabon, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal and CAR http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/camair-co-expands-flight-network-to-gabon-cote-d-ivoire-senegal-and-car http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/camair-co-expands-flight-network-to-gabon-cote-d-ivoire-senegal-and-car Camair-co expands flight network to Gabon, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal and CAR

Camair Co, the Cameroonian public airline, will resume, in the coming weeks, its flights to some African capital cities. These include Libreville in Gabon, Bangui in the Central African Republic, Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire, and Dakar in Senegal, we learned from authorised sources.{loadposition myposition} 

The announcement of this resumption of international activities by Camair Co was recently made in Yaoundé, the capital, during a meeting between the Cameroonian public airline, partners such as travel agencies, and potential clients for these destinations.

This decision from the top management of Camair Co would suggest that the airline is gradually finding back its balance, after several structural and financial issues which have affected its operations since the launch of its activities in 2011. A situation which led the company to temporarily give up on international flights, to focus only on domestic routes. {loadposition myposition2}

Employee Involvement: The Key to Building a Profitable Workforce http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/employee-involvement-the-key-to-building-a-profitable-workforce http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/employee-involvement-the-key-to-building-a-profitable-workforce Employee Involvement: The Key to Building a Profitable Workforce

Looking for any meaningful employment is time consuming, frustrating and emotionally draining. Finding that job to suit your interests, capabilities, aims and desires requires a lot of commitment. As a humans, it is obligatory for us to find the work of our hands so as to be productive and impact the environment in which we find ourselves positively.

Due to this fact, employers in our world today, in Africa to be precise, have grown to become high and mighty. This is because, since time immemorial, job seekers and employees have contorted to, bent over and stretched themselves thin to get a job and sustain jobs respectively.{loadposition myposition}

 

This is understandable because, growing up we have been taught that employers have our source of livelihoods in their hands. They have the power of giving you employment in order for you to be able to put food on the table. And also, so that you can afford the basic necessities of life. There are a lot more reasons but these two are the most common. As such, the relationship between job seekers, employees and employers have become very strained although in recent years, it’s been noted that mutual relationship between staff and heads of every organization is a decisive factor in productivity.

In the 20th century, the workforce was ruled in a more human related pattern but since major technological innovations, our current generation is inclined towards targets and growth of businesses not regarding the minds and labour working to achieve these. Owing to this reason, employees nearly always jump ship (search for new jobs), job seekers find it hard to connect with employers during interviews (remain in unemployed pool) and employers always go back to hiring for open positions (looking for new talents).

How then, will business targets and growths be achieved if these same cycles keep going back and forth over and over again?

The key to finding a remedy to this endless cycle is mending the strained relationships between heads and staff in workplaces. The starting point being Employee Involvement. Majority of employers think benefits, good working conditions and sizeable compensations are what guarantees an employees’ commitment and productivity level. In actual fact, these are what attract job seekers rather to want to work for an organization. After they become employees, it’s the workings of an organization’s structure that fuels how they decide to work towards achieving the growth of an organization. A human oriented organizational style as opposed to a task oriented style is the fundamental measure employers need to adopt for a productive workforce. The co-operative module of employee involvement organizational style ensures that employees are ever ready to invest their time and energy and technical know- how to realizing the goals of the organization. In turn, employers can invest their time and resources into billion-dollar ideas for their organizations instead of falling onto online job boards for the next employee all the time.

Employers can start implementing this organizational style by making a conscious effort to build a cordial relationship with staff and job seekers, ensure that there is a proper and timely communication stream from top to bottom in the organization and implementing staff bonding activities such as retreats and luncheons.

In short, employee involvement is critical if employers want productivity.{loadposition myposition2}

UBA Delivers Stellar Performance in Half-Year 2017, Grows Profit by 66% http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/uba-delivers-stellar-performance-in-half-year-2017-grows-profit-by-66 http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/uba-delivers-stellar-performance-in-half-year-2017-grows-profit-by-66 UBA Delivers Stellar Performance in Half-Year 2017, Grows Profit by 66%

The Pan African financial institution, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc has announced its audited half year financial results ended June 30, 2017, showing remarkable performance across major metrics.

UBA grew its gross earnings for the period by 34.5 percent to N222.7 billion, as against N165.6 billion reported in June 2016. This impressive performance, which reflects the strong momentum of UBA’s business and its increasing share of customers’ wallet, was driven by the 44.3 per cent and 16.0 per cent growth in interest income and non-funded income respectively. The Group’s operating income stood at N161.8 billion, compared to N116.2 billion recorded in the corresponding period of 2016, representing a 39.2 percent growth. 

Notwithstanding the impact of Naira devaluation and double digit inflation in Nigeria and a number of other African countries where UBA operates, the Group managed through its cost lines to deliver a sterling Profit Before tax (PBT) of N57.5 billion, representing a significant growth of 65.5 percent over N34.8 billion recorded in the corresponding period of June 2016.

In same vein, the Group recorded an unprecedented Profit After Tax (PAT) of N42.3 billion, translating to a 56.2 percent growth over the N27.1 billion recorded in the half-year of 2016. This profitability further reflects the earnings capacity of the Group and its capability to progressively deliver superior returns to shareholders.{loadposition myposition} 

While the Group closed the half year with Total Assets of N3.69 trillion, a growth of 5.3 percent, it prudently grew gross loans to N1.6 trillion, a 4 percent growth when compared to the Group loan book as at 31 December 2016.

Reflecting a strong capacity for internal capital generation, the Group’s Shareholders’ Fund grew by 8 percent to N483.1 billion, whilst it delivered an annualized 18.2% return on average equity (RoAE) and an Interim Dividend of N0.20 per Share.

Commenting on the result, Kennedy Uzoka, the Group Managing Director/CEO, said that “the results again demonstrate the strong momentum of the Bank, as we deliver continuous improvement across our businesses and key performance metrics.” 

He further stated that the Bank’s “unwavering focus on customer service excellence is translating to strong operational and financial efficiency gains.  We have achieved better pricing on assets and liabilities, leading to continued improvement in the net interest margin to 7.3%. Leveraging our service-focused strategy and treasury management, we grew non-interest income by 17% year-on-year, reinforcing our transaction-banking-led approach towards deepening financial inclusion in Sub-Saharan Africa.”

According to him, UBA has made considerable progress in its retail banking penetration, gaining market share in deposits, at a time when a sizeable percentage of households are challenged due to inflationary pressures on disposable income. The Bank grew its retail savings and current account deposits by 23% and 5% YTD respectively.

Also speaking on UBA’s financial performance and position, the Group CFO, Ugo Nwaghodoh said that the Bank had “a strong start in the year, despite protracted recession in Nigeria, our largest market. Our profit after tax of N42 billion translates to 18.2% return on average equity, broadly in line with our 2017FY guidance."

He further said that the Bank’s African subsidiaries (ex-Nigeria) contributed 32% of the Group’s earnings, leveraging on digital offerings to gain market share across the different markets.  “We maintain our discipline of banking only quality and profitable assets, a conservative stance which reflects on our asset quality.

Cameroon: Government to support companies with a total of FCfa 180 billion http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/cameroon-government-to-support-companies-with-a-total-of-fcfa-180-billion http://www.cameroon-concord.com/business/cameroon-government-to-support-companies-with-a-total-of-fcfa-180-billion Cameroon: Government to support companies with a total of FCfa 180 billion

On 18 August, while hosting members of the new executive bureau of the Employers’ Group of Cameroon (Groupement Patronal du Cameroun - Gicam), the most important employers organisation in the country, the Minister of Finance (Minfi), Alamine Ousmane Mey, revealed that the government would, starting from 21 August 2017, disburse a total of FCfa 180 billion for companies.

According to the Minfi, this decision, which is the result of an order from the president of the Republic, is meant to service the internal debt of the State. This is, among others, about paying off the invoices of the State’s suppliers and reimbursing VAT credits, for a total of FCfa 100 billion.{loadposition myposition} 

Concurrently, in front of the members of the executive committee of Gicam, Alamine Ousmane Mey declared “FCfa 80 billion will be made available to banks to revive company loans (…) The actions will be effective from the week starting 21 August”. The disbursement of this envelope should give a little respite to local economic operators, whose activities generally slow down due to the difficulties faced by the State Treasury, main provider of contracts in the country.

As a reminder, during the first quarter of 2017, due to the gloomy economic situation, particularly characterised by the drop in public revenues, the Cameroonian public Treasury was unable to fulfill its financial commitments, in excess of FCfa 246 billion. Indeed, based on the mid-year review of the implementation of the 2017 budget published by the Ministry of Finance, only FCfa 735.9 billion out of the public expenditure of Cameroon, projected at FCfa 982.2 billion for this period, were fulfilled, representing an execution rate of 75%.

On 7 August 2017, one of the two MA 60 in the fleet owned by Camair Co, the Cameroonian public airline, landed on the runway of the Bertoua airport, in the capital city of the Eastern region. According to the management of Camair Co, this was a reconnaissance flight, as part of the preparation for the launch of the Douala-Bertoua and Yaoundé-Bertoua lines.

To achieve this, we learned, the airline has already opened a local office in the Eastern regional capital. Concurrently, indicate authorised sources, the public company Aéroports du Cameroun (ADC – Cameroon Airports), in charge of managing the airports in the country, launched renovation works at the Bertoua airport. {loadposition myposition}

With the upcoming opening of the Bertoua airport to Camair Co flights, this public airline will serve eight regions out of the 10 in Cameroon. Only the towns of Ebolowa and Buea, respectively Southern and South-Western regional capitals, will still be absent from this map of destinations served by the airline, who decided to focus on domestic flights, for the moment, considering the financial difficulties it has been facing since the launch of its activities 6 years ago.

As a reminder, Bertoua is the capital of the Cameroonian region richest in mining and forest resources, but also one of the most landlocked and poorest in the country, based on different official reports.
