Pictured: Nissan LogoNissannewsNissan Motor Co and authorities in Tamil Nadu are close to settling a dispute over which the Japanese carmaker initiated international arbitration, seeking more than Rs. 49 billion in unpaid dues and damages, as per sources.Under the proposed settlement, which could be finalised as early as this week, Nissan would take a lower payout of about 20 billion rupees in unpaid dues and forego sums it has sought in damages, two sources aware of the matter said.The resolution would be a victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who faces a general election next year and has spent the last four years trying to transform India’s image as a business-friendly nation.Nissan sent a legal notice to the Modi government in 2016, seeking payment of incentives it said it was due from the government of Tamil Nadu as part of a 2008 agreement to set up a car manufacturing plant in the southern state.The carmaker, in its notice, had claimed 29 billion rupees in unpaid incentives and 21 billion rupees in damages, plus interest and other costs. The Tamil Nadu government has since paid some money and now owes Nissan about 20 billion rupees in unpaid incentives, one of the sources said.According to the proposal, the two sides are close to agreement on, the state would pay the automaker 3 billion rupees upfront once the deal was signed, with the remainder paid by the end of 2019 in 10 instalments, the sources said. Guillaume Sicard, President of Nissan India, poses during the launch of their Datsun Redi-GO compact hatchback car in Mumbai, India, June 7, 2016.Reuters fileNissan would drop the arbitration case against India once the settlement was agreed, the sources said. The proposal has been drawn up by state government officials and Nissan India executives and needs to be approved by Tamil Nadu’s chief minister and the carmaker’s executives in Japan before it is finalised, one of the sources said.M. C. Sampath, Tamil Nadu’s industries minister, confirmed the state was in advanced talks with Nissan. “A final decision on this matter will be taken soon, there is a conducive environment that prevails between the two parties now,” he said, without commenting on the detail of the proposal.The Nissan case, covered by a bilateral trade and investment agreement between New Delhi and Tokyo, is one of more than 20 international arbitration proceedings brought by investors against India, among the highest against any single nation.Companies including Vodafone Group, Cairn Energy and Deutsche Telekom have initiated arbitration seeking to protect their investments against retrospective tax claims and cancellation of contracts. India last year cancelled investment treaties with about 50 foreign governments, making it harder for investors to seek international arbitration for disputes.center_img Closelast_img read more

Merkel plans EU migrant summit

first_imgGerman chancellor Angela Merkel gestures at a news conference with NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg (not pictured) in the German Chancellery in Berlin, Germany on 15 June. Photo: ReutersGerman chancellor Angela Merkel, struggling to avert a crisis within her coalition on migrant policy, is trying to set up a meeting of some EU states to discuss the issue before a leaders summit on 28-29 June, a German newspaper reported on Sunday.Citing government sources from representatives of several EU states, top-selling Bild reported on its website that Merkel wanted to discuss possible solutions with Greece, Italy and Austria.“It is not yet agreed, we are in the planning phase. It is also unclear exactly when this special summit would take place,” a member of the Italian government told Bild. The paper added that next weekend might be one possibility.A German government spokesperson was not immediately available to comment on the report.EU states are deeply divided on how to deal with large numbers of people fleeing conflict, especially from the Middle East. The issue has come to a head in the last week with a new Italian government refusing to let a ship carrying hundreds of migrants dock at its ports.Merkel is adamant that migrant policy can only be effectively agreed and implemented at the European level and is at loggerheads with her own conservative Bavarian allies and her Interior Minister who want unilateral action.The Bavarians have threatened to defy Merkel and on Monday go ahead with plans which she has sought to block. Under the minister’s proposal, Germany would send back migrants who have already registered in other EU countries.This would undermine Merkel’s authority as it represents a reversal of her 2015 open-door approach, and would also be a blow to the EU’s Schengen open-border system.Merkel has asked the Bavarian conservatives to give her two weeks to come up with bilateral deals with some countries, like Italy and Greece, similar to one agreed between Turkey and the EU in 2016.Bild said it was unclear whether Spain and other countries from the Balkans would take part in Merkel’s meeting.last_img read more

Abhishek urges Trinamool workers to put up united fight to oust BJP

first_imgBankura: Trinamool Youth Congress president Abhishek Banerjee urged party workers to put up a united fight to defeat BJP in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.Addressing party workers here at a meeting on Monday afternoon, he said: “It is not Panchayat or Assembly elections. It is a fight between communal Narendra Modi and ‘agnikanya’ Mamata Banerjee. So work hard to ensure the victory of Trinamool Congress candidates.” The candidates from Bankura and Bishnupur, Subrata Mukherjee and Shyamal Santra were present at the meeting, along with MLAs, Panchayat and Zilla Parishad members and councillors of the civic bodies. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseComparing the work carried out by Narendra Modi and Mamata Banerjee, he said the former has “only lied to the people while the latter has kept all her promises.” “Before the 2014 Lok Sabha election, Modi had assured us that he would bring black money from abroad and Rs 15 lakh would be credited to the account of every person. He had also assured that 2 crore youths would get jobs. But he did not keep his promises. On the other hand, Mamata Banerjee has kept all her promises. The Panchayat and Rural Development department has chalked out elaborate plans to provide drinking water in every household. There is electricity in every rural house and superspeciality hospitals have come up where treatment is free.” Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataHe urged the workers to put up a united fight to oust BJP and develop contacts with the local people. “You should listen to them carefully and try to address their problems,” he said, adding: “Those who are looking after the booths should concentrate on their work and will not have to work in the anchal level. Those who work in the block level will not have to work in the district level. Do your work seriously to ensure victory of Trinamool candidates.” The workers will have to aim for fulfilling Mamata Banerjee’s dream of winning in 42 out of 42 Lok sabha seats, he said.last_img read more

6 Reasons CloudFirst Microsoft Dynamics AX Wins the ERP Game

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 4 min read Listen Now Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. January 3, 2017 As my agency transitioned from a traditional online marketing services provider to a performance-based agency, we started to work with much larger corporate clients — we require a minimum daily digital ad spend of $10,000. I encountered several different ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software solutions being used over the past several months.This software allows a company to use a system of integrated applications to manage the business and automate several back office functions related to technology, services and human resources. It integrates all angles of an operation — product planning, development, manufacturing, sales and marketing — in a single database and user interface.ERP software is very slick, and very expensive — some companies spend five-figures and some spend millions of dollars. Along the way, Microsoft Dynamics AX has stood out as a superior ERP solution, and here are six reasons why this could-first option is a winner.1. Convenience of cloud-first software. Working in the cloud has many convenience benefits, including automatic updates. No more having to update software — that’s all handled in the background automatically.The full cloud environment installation takes no more than 60 to 90 minutes to complete. The disaster recovery and development testing is a breeze, and many companies love the simplification of production environments and reduction of backup servers needed when working with a cloud-first piece of software.This also enables scaling based on need, meaning you don’t pay for what you’re not using and adding or removing users is simple and immediate.Related: The 15 Most Profitable Small-Business Industries2. Smart intelligence.It’s possible to make decisions that are both more accurate and actionable by leveraging the insights and data that you are able to pull through integrations with popular CRMs and Office 365.Users can connect their Microsoft Dynamics AX to PowerBI.com in order to incorporate the data, reports and metrics that have been pre-configured by the user. This transforms the data into rich visuals, which is much easier to digest and analyze than raw data.3. LCS (Lifecycle Services) equals fast deployment.Microsoft has put a lot of emphasis on Lifecycle Services (LCS), which features tools that enhance the efficiency and shorten the time with their system guided procedures and controls. It’s highly scalable, making it easier to manage the entire lifecycle of the software, from conference room pilot, through go-live, and on to post-implementation support.Related: 22 Qualities That Make a Great Leader4. Use of Visual Studio and .NET Framework.The development environment has deep integration with the Dynamics AX7 Application Object Tree (AOT), even though it’s been moved to Visual Studio. The native X++ language is still the primary development language for AX7 but is now considered the same as any other .Net language such as VB and C#. X++ is now considered a “first class citizen” .Net language by Microsoft and developers still need extensive knowledge of X++ to customize any of AX7’s base features.Related: 11 Beliefs These Moguls Use to Win Big5. Personalized workspaces result in more productivity.For current Microsoft Dynamics AX users, role centers are now replaced with workspaces. Workspaces are mini applications that help users focus on the most important aspects of their tasks required for the job. It allows them to view and act on what they need from this single task window. All the supporting actions are the same screen — this provides a custom user experience and improved productivity.6. Superior UX (User Experience). Most ERP software solutions have outdated designs and poor user experiences. Microsoft Dynamics AX combines Windows 8 and HTML5 to create a light, modern experience that makes it simple for teams to collaborate and share on. Cloud-first means that it’s accessed through a web browser, eliminating installs on your equipment and additional servers to handle storage and backups, which is something every IT department loves.last_img read more
